An Everest base camp trek is the adventure of a lifetime, a journey for those whose dreams soar higher than even the clouds. Miles from cars, convenie...
Dear Bejay and Bobby, As we said, it is our first trip to Asia and frist trip to Nepal. My dream was to see the Himalayan and to do some hikking/trekking in them .So we did not manage to trek as far as I had hopefully wished-But our guide Pnbhat and you and the porter cared for us and took us slowly slowly to Poon Hill. Yes the Jam stat and the walk up in the dark was worth it as we were lucky and had a wonderful view. So we had to shorten our trek because all the walking up and down-more stone-steps! Became too much for Paul and his knee and our 65+ years. You were very understanding-Thank you! After the cold nights of the trek our hot water bottles were really good.It was lovely to be warm in pokhara and then Chitwan National Park. We really enjoyed Patan Durbar Square and the meuseum-a wonderful introduction which would have been good at the beginning.Staying the night at Bhaktapur was peaceful after hecti Kathmandu-apart from the prayer bells! and easy from the airport.Bobby and Bijay Thank you for making the arrangements for a trip that we will always remember.Katlerne and Paul- Essex flat landers(England)
