We absolute fell in love with Nepal after doing the Everest short trek.
When my friend and I started to plan our trip to Nepal we were not quite sure which trek we wanted to do, just that it should not be a very long and strenuous one. The manager was very helpful giving us different options to choose from and in the end we chose the Everest short trek which gave us the opportunity to see Mount Everest, fly to Lukla and visit the gate to Everest, Namche Bazar. It all seemed very appealing to us, and we don’t regret it for a moment. We had the choice to go on private trip on day 3 or join another group on day 4. We decided to join a group since it could be fun to meet more people. This also gave us the opportunity to be well rested and well prepared.
After a long flight and all the procedures at the airport it was nice to go outside and be greeted by a friendly face, jump in a car and be taken to a nice hotel. When you are a first time visitor in Nepal, Kathmandu can be quit overwhelming, especially if you are not experienced traveler. So I was quite happy we asked the manager to find a hotel close to his office in the heart of Thamel. It was a nice and clean hotel, good beds, air-condition and hot water in the shower.
The day before we left for Lukla we met our group and our guide at My Everest Trip for a briefing and a update on the weather conditions, the weather can be quite tricky and can always cause delays when it comes to flying to Lukla.
Next morning we were ready to go, the weather caused no problems and gave us the most spectacular view of the Himalayas from the plain.
It’s not possible to describe in words how beautiful this place is, you really have to go and see for yourself. Our guide did a great job, his knowledge and love for his country reflected in everything he did. He was always close, making sure everybody was happy and safe and taking care of everything.
The Everest short trek is a good choice for a short trek. You see so much in a few days and learn so much about history and the culture and we cannot thank My Everest Trip enough for giving us such a wonderful adventure.
After returning to Kathmandu we visited the office several times for good advice or just to drink a cup of tea with the manager and every time we were greeted by his kindness and enthusiasm. The manager and his staff really offer the best service you could ask for. Therefore we will return to Nepal and My Everest Trip for another adventure, because we are now in love with Nepal
