Everest Base Camp Trek Trekking with Ramesh Paneru is an absolute delight. His knowledge of Khumbu's trail and peaks is both impressive and reassuring (other guides and porters regularly ask him the way). His nature is kind and generous (he sings and smiles and offers jokes and all jokes at just the right time). And he is as intent on sharing what he can of the Napali culture and politics with trekkers as he is with safety acclimatizing them on their way toward their destination. As for t...

Everest Base Camp The toughest part of the trip is getting your body used to "squatting". The up and down hiking, for me, was an opportunity to push my body and mental toughness. Sadly due to Monsoon season, I was unable to see Mt. Everest. On the other hand, the goal of the trip was not to see Everest rather to make it to Base Camp. In this regard our trip was very successful. Our guide introduced us to many people that shared plethora & stories of Everest ascents, adventures a... See more nd travels. K.B.(our guide) was strong, competent and very knowledgeable. He knew the exact heights of every mountain peaks pass and village along our trip. Furthermore he could estimate with tremendous accuracy, the distance and times to the next destination. An overall success and a great experience See less...
