This was really an amazing journey. Not just a trek, but a pilgrimage (Helumbu valley). From the beginning, the communication with the office/Himal was great: quick response, courteous, honest, flexible, and good price. When we came to the office, it continued just like that: we were introduced to the guide, able to pay with a credit card, and received warm, clean sleeping bags. During the trek, Hari the (English-speaking: ) guide fulfilled all our wishes, adjusting the itinerary, so we got to visit the Milarepa cave and stayed longer at some special sites in Melanchi. Sunil the porter was smiling throughout, carrying our load. I might not have made it up the mountainside without him…and at times Hari had to pull me up, or help me down… Good rooms throughout, some with hot showers, good food, fresh fruit, and excellent hosts. Delicious farewell dinner at Hari\’s home in Kathmandu. I am very happy and grateful for everything, a dream come true. Can only recommend this company and team, thank you!
