Email: lerteckchai@yahoo.com Trekking to Everest Base Camp was my lifetime ambitious. I fulfilled it in October 2011. It is my lifetime experience and my life’s most memorable moment. The moment I reached the Everest base camp and the top of Kala Patthar was really awesome. It was like you were on the top of the world?.well, not quite, but the sense of achievement you felt was beyond words. All these would not make possible without Adventure Great Himalaya Trek & Expedition (P) Ltd. Thanks to Mr. Babu (Managing Director of Adventure Great Himalaya)

I travelled alone and joined with a group of 15 trekkers from UK. I felt very comfortable with the group I went with. They were friendly and not to mentioned very funny as well. We turned into friends almost instantly. There were a lot of fun travelling with them and I am glad to have their company on my trip.

Our trek was fantastic. Everything was very well organized. Even when we had bad weather in Lukla and could not fly back to Kathmandu, the tour guide and the Trekking Company managed to rearrange everything and we flew back to Kathmandu next morning.

On our trek, breakfast, lunch and dinner were very well served. We chose what we want from the menu. Food was fantastic and cooked in “clean” and “safe” kitchens. Adventure Great Himalaya provides us with great porters and lovely guides. Guides are very knowledgeable and have great experience in the Himalaya region. They were friendly; spoke good English and great singers as well. They always made sure that we got the best rooms in the lodge. Every night after dinner, we were brief by guides on the journey ahead next day. I personally found this very useful and communicative.

In Himalaya region, everywhere you look, there is great view. The astonish view is way beyond words could descript. The sheer size of the mountains and valleys is something I have never experienced. Thanks to Adventure Great Himalaya for making my EBC trek a wonderful and memorable experience. If I decide to go back for another adventure in Nepal, I will definitely go with Adventure Great Himalaya.

I just came back from an amazing experience i had with Adventure Great Himalaya and their guide Nabin. Everything was perfect; i can't think of anything which wasn't. All the lodges, the food, the service while organizing the whole trip via email, the service provided by nabin during trekking, everything was brilliant. I was trekking on the EBC trek to kala pattar which is summited, it has been an adventure of a lifetime and i can highly recommend adventure great Himalaya, which is a highly professional, very fair and honest company, 100% Support!

And if you ever end up in the office of Mr. Karki, try the Masala Tea from next door, it's probably the best in Nepal !
