I started my base camp with a tour guide with the the Nepal Trekking experts, named Raj. This guy is arguably someone that i would most importantly consider a friend and tour guide. For the majority of the time, he spent everything with a customer who was not physically capable of making it to base camp, however he reassured her and made sure she made it to the end and as an end result she was unbelievably grateful. This to me was impressive, given going to base camp is not the cheapest in journey in the world. Even though the trip is a total of 12 days walking, he made it feel like a walk in the park :) I'm not the biggest fan of giving reviews, however Raj considers people like family, not as a customer - he is extremely customer service focused and takes his job extremely seriously. I was lucky enough to meet his family, (including his wife and children) and confirm he is a true gentleman. If you ever go to Nepal, i highly recommend Raj - a man with a big heart and knowledge of the himalayan mountains that are greater than you can imagine. Thanks, Iain
My name is Bill and I have just returned home after trekking in the Everest region on the Himalayas. My guide was none other then my Himalayan Sherpa himself mr Rajesh. When you arrive in Nepal and walk thamel looking for a trekking company it is such an incredibly difficult choice to choose which company to use. I finally settled on Nepal Trekking Experts company as I was drawn to the very friendly and extremely knowledgable staff there. This is because there is no "boss" as such but the company is owned by a group of actual guides. This makes a massive difference. Rajesh spoke perfect english and his knowledge was impeccable. Every and I mean EVERY mountain in the region he knew the name of and the exact hight and even the difficulty of climb. I am personally more into mountain climbing then trekking, however I went on my trip to get an up close view of mountains that I one day wish to summit, and it was so amazing to have such a knowledgable guide as it made the trip so much more special. Even the other people whom where trekking with different companies said to me how much they liked my guide and how he was better then theirs. I feel externally lucky to have been able to take the himalayan Sherpa, mr Rajesh as my guide and am proud to be able to call him my friend now. I will 100% be using Rajesh from Nepal Trekking Experts again for my return trips to the Himalayas. Thank you Nepal Trekking Experts and especially thank you to my guide and friend Rajesh! See you soon. Visited June 2014
