Gokoyo and EBC with children - Excellent!

This is the second time we've used Environmental Treks and Expeditions for a family trek in Nepal. The first time was in December 2010 (2 adults 2 children aged 6 and 8) when we trekked to Annapurna Sanctuary. This most recent trek in December 2015 was with another family (see AndrewJR105 review below) to Gokyo and Everest Base Camp. Although there was an earthquake earlier in 2015, the Everest region received only a little damage, and the overwhelming majority of the places we saw on our 18 day trek were in excellent condition - the lodges were clean and well maintained, with food very well prepared. Our guide (Hari Krishna Sapkota), with more than 30 years experience, selected outstanding places to stay, gave advice on food and walking, and managed the porters and logistics. Nava, the owner of the trekking company, was professional, gave good advice and briefing before and after the trek, making sure personally that everything was properly taken care of. Email interactions with them are fast and comprehensive. We've trekked in Nepal 7+ times over the past 25 years, and have seen many different organisations and guides over the years. We returned to Environmental Treks & Expeditions because of their high professionalism and organisation, experience and advice and quality of guides - Nava really cares about his clients, and for family groups he and his guides pay special attention re safety and enjoyment. We'll never forget the special Christmas meal of chicken curry that Hari arranged, or his gentle but firm guiding and leadership. Thanks for a fantastic trek!
