Best Nepal Experience - Date of experience: September 2018

Where can I start? I was a bit stressed out with the planning before my trip, as I was not a 100% sure for which trek I would like to go. However, Mukti (the owner) was really patient and explained everything very well via Whatsapp. The pickup from the airport went perfectly smooth and the Maya Boutique Hotel really is a great place to start off your trip in the heart of Thamel. The staff there is absolutely friendly and helpful. Amazing crew! I finally decided to go on a short trek towards Everest Base Camp. The price was very reasonable and Mukti organized everything very well on short notice. The flight to Lukla was great and my guide picked me up at the airfield as discussed. My guide (Kaji Sherpa) was an amazing person, took care of me and provided me with very interesting insights and information on Sherpa culture and local wildlife. The trek itself was amazing and the tea houses were all chosen carefully. Rooms and food very always impeccable. Unfortunatelly, I got really sick during the trek and could not continue. Also there, Mukti and Kaji did their best to get me back to Kathmandu safely. I did not feel as if I had anything to worry about. So - despite my unfortunate health problems- I really had a great time. And would really like to thank Mukti and Kaji for making it possible and taking care of everything. I can really recommend Himalayasonfoot without any doubt!
