Ill start off by saying this trip was AWESOME!
I went on this trek with my dad who is 70 years old. He has always been fit but at 70 is starting to feel things a lot more. We both made it to Base Camp and it is a memory that will be with us forever.
The organising of my Father & Son trip started with Santosh in the office (Kathmandu) I was on email contact with him to plan our trip and everything went very well. Santosh replied quickly, answering all my questions so I could best plan for our trip and trek.
We were greeted at the airport by our guide Shiba.
Before I go on any further, Shiba was amazing. This guy is a true gentleman. He really cares for all of his trekkers and he is a good soul. I feel blessed to have been put with Shiba. My father and I felt 100% safe as our two guides Shiba & Dussi were knowledgeable and experienced and as mentioned they both really cared about us in every way they possibly could. They always tried to get us the best rooms at the tea houses each night and they advised us on what to eat and what not to eat so we could all stay healthy and well to enjoy out trip and of course make it to Base Camp.
We would get a trekking briefing every evening after dinner of what was install for us the next day. This would include what sort of clothing we should wear, where we will stop for lunch, the terrain, what the weather will be like, how much is uphill/downhill etc, This just helped everyone relax and prepare themselves best for the day ahead.
The scenery was beautiful. Everyday the scenery changes as you make your way towards Everest.
The trekking was exhausting some days and you need a half decent fitness level to enjoy the trip.
All in all the trip from start to finish was fantastic and very well organised.
Thanks for a great experience Himalayan Scenery Trek.
I will be and I know my father will also be recommending you. Great company to choose for your trip and will go the extra mile to organise any special requests.
Thanks a Million!!
