I had a wonderful Guide, Arjun, who works for the Himalayan Scenery Treks and Expedition Day Tours, in fact I wouldn't have made it to the Monastery without the support and encouragement of Arjun.
I also wouldn't have made it to Lukla without the help of Subash, the Managing Director of the company. Our flights were cancelled for two days due to bad weather, other flights were leaving but, in Nepal if your flight is cancelled it is too bad and you have to get on the next available flight. It was only when Subash got on the phone and complained that we managed to get a flight the next day. During my 6 day trek (my first ever), Subash phoned the Guide each day to make sure we were okay, and whether we needed anything. I certainly felt well looked after.
I am going back next Sept / Oct for a longer trek, this time to Everest Base Camp and will most certainly be going with Subash and his company.
