Reliable and trustworthy organization by Dipak

Communications with Dipak before and during my Nepal visit was prompt and informative, no enquiries dismissed even the small ones. He follows through once in the country, as well as being available.
My trip was a ‘slow and easy Everest’ which reaches 3,800m for those not wanting to complete the full Everest run. I was a solo, senior female traveller and my guide Lhapka and porter Pemba were two pleasant and personable young men. I found the estimated walking time per day to be a fair estimate, having reached daily destinations well within the indicated walking time frame, even though I would have appeared to be slow, in particular on inclines at 3,800.
Accommodation for the area is pretty standard, but one in particular I think could have been improved on (namely Khumjung). Namche had the best (access to hot, contained shower).
One destination was not reached, Tengboche due to a couple of factors.
One, not securing accommodation in advance, even with a major Monastery celebration. The second, being my decision not to attempt the long ascent from Phunki Thanga to Tengboche to then turn around the next day and retrace part of the trail finishing with another ascent to Namche.
This resulted in being one day ahead of the itinerary, giving an extra day in Lukla which was way too long.
Having said all this I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Trekking Planner and Dipak for his dedication and professional approach in providing a trustworthy service.
