I recently did the Upper Mustang Trek with a group of friends. This was such a great adventure I feel urge to write good review for other adventurous people to benefit from
When you spend your hard earned money you really want value for it and My Everest Trip (MET) lived up to all my expectations and beyond. MET was recommended to me by family. My first contact with the company took place several months before our trip was planned. If you are unexperienced in trekking you have so many questions about equipment, guides, porters, how hard the trek is and so on. Corresponding with Puru made me relax more and more as he responded very quickly to all my emails. I soon realized I had nothing to worry about. He only works with certified guides, and everybody who works for him is ensured. He also gave good advice on equipment, what you should bring from home and what you can buy cheaper in Nepal. His directions about how to get smoothly through all the airport procedures also came in handy.
Upon arrival In Kathmandu Puru picked us up in the airport and took us to our hotel in Thamel. The next day we meet Hari who was our guide and we had all the final details about the trek and how to pack our backpack and day pack.
Upper Mustang was great. MET are so well organized. Hari and the friendly porters were great company, Hari in particular always making sure we were fine and sharing his big knowledge about the region. The porters, though carrying heavy weight, always friendly and smiling. When you do strenuous walking it’s nice to be surrounded by good people to support and cheer you up, knowing that every night you have good accommodation and good healthy food that gives you strength to carry on.
The Upper Mustang Trek is loaded with cultural treasures and indescribable beauty of nature, having an experienced guide is essential, especially when he like Hari shares all his knowledge willingly and with great pleasure and proudness.
I understand why MET has such loyal clients. They are true to Nepalese tradition and have an amazing network of skilled people but they (very importantly) understand that their clients come from all parts of the world with different backgrounds and expectations. All the team members are humble and polite yet proud of what they do. Trekking runs in their blood and this is exactly what you need being a guest here.
From the bottom of my heart, Thank you Puru and MET, this trek will be treasured by me and my friends for the rest of our lives.
And I give My Everest Trip the highest recommendation possible…. Namaste
