What Our Clients Says?

Everest Base Camp Trekking -2008

"What was I thinking???? Early mornings crazy slippery & muddy trails, yak dug, steep cliffs, rain, snow and those nasty uphill (I think it would have been easier to build an new bridge then walk phortse to Mong!) But it was all worth it. The spectacular views, peaceful village, friendly locals, great food, local Sherpa culture.....
