From the moment locally based Imperial Nepal Treks and Expeditions picked my friend Peter and I (Greg) up from Kathmandu International Airport through to dropping us back 26 days later, we were both so happy that we chose INT from the myriad of Kathmandu and internationally based trekking companies that offered their services to us for our trek to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes. INT's all inclusive price was very competitive and turned out to be excellent value for us. We are from Sydney, Australia and experienced hikers and trekkers.
Our accommodation before and after the trek was centrally located in Thamel and was of the highest standard and together with our guided day tour of Kathmandu's major historical and religious destinations was a great introduction to the company and our trip.We met Paras, our tour manager, over breakfast to go through final arrangements and then attended a welcome dinner with our guide Dinesh prior to our departure. We were made to feel like family and everything we expected and hoped for over the ensuring weeks exceeded our expectations.
Dinesh is a fantastic guide, highly experienced, extremely knowledgeable, patient, all most as funny as us, and by the end of the trip we considered him to be a great bloke and a mate. Deservedly high praise from Peter and I.
Our return flights to Lukla, all our meals and accommodation and all our needs and necessities were taken care of by Dinesh. Heavy snow meant we were unable to cross high passes originally on the itinerary. No worries, after discussions with Dinesh and on his advice we were back down and up valleys and reaching our intended destinations with the minimum of fuss and without any problems. Dinesh took care of everything and were were able to see magnificent mountain scenery and stay in fantastic village tea houses along the way. A truly memorable experience in a unique part of the world.
So if your planning an adventure holiday in Nepal the best advice I can give you is to include Imperial Nepal Treks and Expeditions, Paras and Dinesh, on your short list of companies to make your inquiries and if you decide as we did to go with INT then I am sure you will have both a safe trip and an unforgettable experience in Kathmandu and on the mountain trek of your choice.
