Everything about my experience with Nepal Eco Tours was excellent from the initial panning to the final drop off in Kathmandu. The trekking route was great with lots of beautiful views and interesting stops. The gear provided by Nepal Eco Tours was top notch... sleeping bags , heavy parkas, micro-spikes and duffel bag. The online communications, planning and payment were all smooth and easy to do. Of Special note: Our guide Jiba Sherpa and porter, Shanta were amazing and in fact made the whole experience safe, interesting, enjoyable and most of all memorable Jiba was very knowledgeable about the area, the trek, guest houses and food. Every selection he made was perfect. They both were eco conscious, polite, friendly and interesting. Due to some health issues I had, and some weather concerns, Jiba made adjustments to our trekking plan as needed to ensure our health and safety. Although we were not able to make our planned destination, we loved all the adjustments we made and now have some incredible experiences to remember for the rest of our lives. Shanta was sweet, polite and very up beat. Although I had planned to carry my own pack, I was ill the first couple of days and needed help. Shanta took on the extra load with a smile and watched my every move to ensure I was doing OKay. Leaving Jiba and Shanta at the end of the trek was like saying goodbye to family.... they will always be a significant part of my memories and I hope to someday see them again. Kudos to Jiba and Shanta. Thank you Nepal Eco tours for putting us with these two amazing men and for providing a trek of a lifetime!
