Brilliant Trekking Agency

Rating:  

In October 2021, I & my wife did the Short Everest base camp trek with Nepal Trekking Experts. We reached out to the company and from the moment of the first enquiry to leaving the country we were fully satisfied with our experience. All correspondence was completely professional and we always felt like we were in safe hands.

Our guide was Binod, and he was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful to us in all manners, whether encouraging us in difficult parts of the trek or helping to order meals. When we started to suffer from altitude sickness, he did a great job and educated decisions to help combat the effects and make it to the base camp.

Since we had a short holiday and high preference of exploring Everest Base Camp, short Everest Base camp trek with Nepal trekking Experts was the best fit for us. Likewise, chopper ride from Gorakshep to Lukla was an incredible experience ever.

Overall, I can't recommend this trekking company enough.
