I did a little bit of research prior to the trip and found a few people recommending to go in early December in order to miss the heavy crowd and get the best weather (if you're not scared of a little snow). However, because of a string of unexpected events I ended up arriving in Nepal on the 18th of December, starting the trek on the 19th, and finishing right on NYE.
Chandra was amazing to deal with from the start to finish, from planning my itinerary, to sorting our all of my permits prior to my arrival. I had Bashu as my guide and Umesh as my porter, and honestly couldn't have asked for better trekking companions.
It was my first time travelling solo, my first time in Nepal, and also my first time doing a trek of this scale. I was severely underprepared for this trek and weather conditions, however Bashu and Umesh both did their best to make sure I felt safe and comfortable all throughout my journey.
Some days you push your body to its absolute limit, but every single day you are rewarded with sceneries that are absolutely out of this world. Definitely a trip that will stay with me for life, and something I'll be recommending to everyone. Thank you Chandra, Bashu and Umesh for making it a smooth sailing journey for me! Can't wait to make my way back to Nepal and trek other parts of the Himalayas <3
