It was a beautiful trek, in an environment of unique beauty; the arrival at the base camp is a moment that one does not forget for a lifetime, but the whole journey to get there is also spectacular; the organization of the agency was perfect and the assistance excellent; the guide, Mr. Padam, always present, prepared and efficient, as well as nice, and the porter, Mr. Nares, indispensable, present and very kind. Definitely an absolutely positive experience, in which everything was perfect, also thanks to the agency's staff who were able to resolve every issue in the best possible way. Heartfelt thanks for this strong, unique and unforgettable experience. Luca

We had a wonderful experience with our guide Phul. December is a dry month and sunny so the trek is very comfortable. The views across the valleys into the Himalayas are breathtaking. The experience has been very good. Liberty Holidays organised our tour and everything worked perfectly. Our guide was very attentive, very informative and very interesting. We loved the experience. Thank you!

excellent trip! the Driver picked Me up from the hotel and took me to the airport, where we met our pilot and the tour guide who was with us the whole way. the entire trip was worth every penny! we had an unbelievable view of Mt. Everest and we got to eat breakfast at a great hotel at 12000 feet!

Everest was spectacular. Really recommended. However, the altitude is quite high, so you need to be careful of altitude sickness. However, the guides and pilots were all kind people. I was especially grateful that the guide's wife was Japanese, so she spoke a little Japanese.

Despite the delay due to the weather (in fact, thick fog occurs frequently) it was an exciting and unique experience
