    Incredible Experience

    Rating:

    We were a group of four (over 50s) who recently successfully completed the Everest Basecamp Walk/trek with Himalayan Scenery Treks. Our guide, Ishor, was amazing - he was knowledgable about the ares through which we walked and he gave us good walking advice as we proceeded along the route. He guided us through each day being really in tune with the needs of each member of the group. We loved his sayings and he had a lovely sense of humour. Our two porters, Raj and Sagar where there all the time carrying our bags and making sure it arrived dry at the next teahouse - we had a fair amount of rain along the way. 
    The trek was generally well organised although we all agreed that the itinerary could have been more detailed and more accurate. It did not truly represent the walk we did and caused a bit of confusion initially. Ishor handled this well and explained why changes had to be made. 
    The teahouses Himalayan Scenery use as overnight stops are generally comfortable and reasonably clean with good food options. There was not always WIFI available as was indicated.This apparently changes during high season.
    Himalayan Scenery made great efforts in accommodating and assisting us through very challenging weather conditions. They were able to arrange a helicopter from Sourki to get us back to Kathmandu in time for our international flights. 
    I can highly recommend this company as a trekking company. We had a memorable trip.
