I’ve just returned from and incredible trip to Kathmandu and trek to Everest Base Camp.
It was simply stunning!
I was a solo traveller who tagged onto a group of 11 other trekkers to Everest.
The Thamel Eco Resort was fabulous. A cute little boutique hotel only a street back from the main road yet so peaceful and quiet. Very clean and well presented. All the staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough to help with my stay.
I used Earthbound Expeditions from a recommendation from a friend and I wasn’t disappointed! Right from the get go everyone was so welcoming and I felt I was looked after really well.
Especial being a single girl on my first visit to Nepal.
Rajan, Arjun and Bibek (our tour leader and guides, respectively) were amazing! So patient with all of us, as at one point or another we all had aches, pains, sickness and suffered from the effects of the altitude, and not once did any of them make me feel like a was slowing the group down. They really looked after us all and cared about my well being, offering me certain foods to help with nausea and Diamox to help with the altitude, which they supplied. All done with a constant smile on their faces! Such a lovely team.
As for the trek it’s self…. Incredible!
Beautiful scenery, stunning views and those peaks! Wow!
I couldn’t have asked for a more magical trip, caring staff and friendly group. Despite it being overcast and drizzly for most of the trip (just the time of year) we were treated to glimpses of Everest and were surrounded by towering peaks. The most beautiful scenery I have ever seen.
Accommodation is clean and dry, very warm in the main lounge and simple, 2 single bed rooms with shared washing facilities. The accommodation gets a little more basic the higher you climb but that’s to be expected. Especially when you see that everything is walked up from Lukla! Toilet rolls and bottles of water included! Simply amazing, herculean effort by all the Sherpa people!
A truly wonderful trek! Thank you Earthbound Expeditions for an amazing adventure, new friends and memories to last a lifetime!
