We booked a 20-day EBC trek from Phaplu with ‘Nepal Wilderness Trekking’ and we are extremely happy with the service we received. Himal was extremely helpful in answering all of our questions in detail before our trek and in pre-trek arrangements.
Our porter/guide was Lal Gurung who was excellent. He was very knowledgable about the area, was very patient with us and really went out of his way to ensure we had a safe and enjoyable trek. He comes across as a very genuine and kind person and speaks good English. We had a few challenges on the way with knee pain and sickness and Lal really helped us to overcome these and complete the trek…More»
