The whole trip was amazing. Though we had to add three additional days of hiking as because of bad weather there were no flights to Lukla, we enjoyed it a lot. It was a little bit intense at the beginning as we wanted to get to the original plan asap, but we were glad for it in the end as we were able to see the more authentic side of Nepal. Later we continued on the trail as it was planned and successfully made it to both EBC and Kala Patthar. Our guide always took care of us and managed everything we needed and wanted with no problem. It was very comfortable to have a guide who can arrange everything as it was the first time we were in Nepal and to be honest, it can be a little bit chaotic for Europeans :)) Also, he managed us our porter and sometimes helped me with some my stuff himself <3 Hari, the organiser, was there for us all the time as well and ready to help and manage anything we needed. Back in Kathmandu we also had a nice little party. I can only recommend this trip!

The tour was well organized by Hari. Unfortunately there were no flights to Lukla due to bad weather. Therefore, a jeep was quickly organized to take us to Phaplu. So you could really see a lot of the landscape! From there it should then go on foot to Lukla in 2 days. We weren't prepared for the (unplanned) part of the tour and unfortunately overstretched ourselves. There was also a minor knee injury. So we decided to split the group up and got a new guide the next morning for free. Due to the injury, we only hiked as far as Lukla. Since there were no more flights to Ramecchap or Kathmandu in Lukla, Hari organized a helicopter for us. That too was a great experience! A few extra days in the hotel came on top of that! All in all very well organized and can only be recommended. Hari really makes everything possible for his guests!!:)

Very experienced and friendly guide. Well organized and helpful company. The guide could speak good English which is not normal as far as I heard from other travelers on the way. The views and the landscape is stunning. Overall I had a good experience. I would recommend everyone to take a guide, especially if it's the first time in Nepal. He helped me to speak with locals and also gave me a lot of information about the country and the culture during our way
