My sister and I visited Nepal during thanksgiving to trek up to Everest base camp and kalapathar. We chose break free adventure as they were rated very high in trip advisor. However, you are not sure how it will all work until you have a positive experience….
I have to tell you that the reviews were accurate. Bharath came to the airport to receive us and dropped us at the hotel, made arrangements for exchange of currency arranged for reliable guides for both the city tour and the hike. Bharath is very professional honest and trustworthy. He is intent on making his customers happy…. Just like I the unted states, customer is very important for bharath.
As far as the trek, we had an excellent Sherpa called Dorji and he was amazzzzzing….. Very strong carried about 60 pounds on his back and still hiked much faster then us. The Lat two days he came back after dropping the luggage at the teahouse and came back and carried both my sister and my backpack…. We wer amazed how little gear he had so we gave a lot of our gear to him.
We did the hike over 6 nights 7 days. It was an amazing journey. Very safe trails. The people of Nepal are very nice and honest people. The food was excellent at tea houses. Our guide had bought with him some fresh fruits to feed us and that also helped. My sister and I were able to achieve our goal of seeing EBC and kalapathar.
Overall I had a great experience with break free adventure and recommend them. Also, Nepal seems like a safe country for single women to travel. Amazing place! Amazing people! Talented pilots and beautiful mountains.
