Everest Base Camp Trek
May 4, 2012
We had a wonderful time in Nepal on the Everest Base Camp trek with Himalayan Glacier Trekking. I have done many treks in the past but it was my husband’s first time and both of us were very impressed with the service and attention that we received from HGT. We set up the trek from Australia through the HGT office and were happy to find the company willing to make any requested adjustments to itineraries while being flexible with departure dates and also offering advice and counsel in their areas of expertise. The trek itself was exceptional – the views are something that we will always have in our memories.
Raj, our guide, was professional, very informative and constantly looking out for our well-being. Of all the treks I have done, I would say that Raj is the best guide I have had! The organisation along the way was easy as Jaya, our porter, would have our room ready on arrival, and Raj would assist with our food orders and any other things to simplify everything for us. Along the trek, we stayed in good trekking lodges and were spoiled by a few extra luxuries in some locations not offered by other companies charging the same price for treks eg. heated blankets and hot showers in Namche Bazaar or ensuite toilets in Dingboche. Overall I would highly recommend trekking EBC with HGT to all levels and ages of trekkers. Thanks again to the team for making our time in Nepal magical.
As a suggestion, we weren’t very impressed with the professionalism of the guide used for the city tour in Kathmandu. His explanations were very brief as he was often in conversation with the driver or on his mobile phone.
Thanks again for a wonderful holiday filled with so many magical memories.
