Awesome Everest Base Camp Trek

This was my third trip and first trip of friends has used Adventure Discovery Treks and the services just gets better and better each time. We treks to Everest Base Camp and everything from starting to ending was perfectly arranged. From pick up at airport to hotel transfers to trekking and equipments

Rabi, Guide Gopal and the rest entire team did an excellent job. Our Guide is now a very close friend his outstanding information of the area, the trek and just to playing cards with him on a night, Nothing is trouble and offered a  much inside in to Nepali life when you actually eat together and socialize together rather than the Guide felling not part of the team.

Would definitely use Adventure Discovery again without hesitation, It’s my 4the trip to Nepal in 4 years so no doubt will back again soon for adventure.

The Only thing you have to do is Walk

The guys at Adventure Discovery Treks do pretty much everything bar walk the route for you
I web searched and sent some enquiry emails for Nepal Trekking and these guys were the first to come back and came back with that allowed me to make decision.

Rabi tailor-made a trip for the short duration that I had – arranged accommodation and pick ups and was in constant contact prior of the trip and since I have return. The Everest Trek with Dipu was excellent.

Would use again and have recommended to others already
