Overall Trek Experience

Some experiences you remember clearly. And some experiences hardly seem real. Only when looking back at the photos can I appreciate the remoteness and beauty of the Everest region. It seemed surreal at the time, it still gives me goosebumps just to think about it. All the logistics (including Kathmandu) were very professional, helping me feel relaxed and comfortable. The guide was superb, again making me feel relaxed and comfortable so I could just concentrate on hiking. The porters were great as well, especially when accompanying us on Kala Pathhar and Gokyo Ri. We listened to other guides at the teahouses: our guide Mukun was far more detailed in his daily trek briefing and would say "I will find out" if he didn't know the answer to our question. Other guides seemed to say nothing more than "tomorrow we set off at 7 and trek all morning." Mukun's English was fluent and easy to follow throughout. We appeared to stay in the best teahouse in a village, memorably in Namche Bazaar and also in Lobuche when we realized that our teahouse was more expensive (and far nicer) than all the others. Food was generous and the guide ensured meals could run to our required schedule. I wouldn't recommend anything to be different. And there were many times we sat at the teahouses complementing ourselves on our choice of trek company.
