I did the Everest Base Camp Trek using this company. No hidden charges, no hard sell to increase days or add on detours – Anil was easy going and basically said ‘it’s your holiday, we will do whatever we can to make it a good one’. His communication was good, he also lent me a set of trek poles and pointed me towards a decent shop to rent cold weather gear.
The guide was Anil. I’m amazed at how strong and fit he is; he did his job superbly – I have a leg injury and he basically let me go ahead, to set the pace and rest whenever I wanted – because of this, my leg didn’t give me any bother at all. He knows the region like the back of his hand, is always punctual in the mornings, sorted me out with drinking water and decent lodges along the way, as well as knowing where the decent photo views were. I felt like if there was a problem, it wouldn’t be any trouble for Anil , and that’s important in an environment with risks such as AMS, hypothermia etc.
Compared to other companies, this one wasn’t particularly expensive – don’t let this put you off though; overall if you want a hassle-free booking experience with a local guide/porter that will get you to EBC and back within the planned timeframe, this company is the one to go for.
