Stunning View and Spiritually Rich - EVEREST
Verna N. Carson
This past year, I had done trekking into Nepal for the Thrill experience with all the Hiking Annapurna trekking and tours team and the provider reacts to our question very quickly with great response and clear detail. It is hard to write this review without getting hyperbole following hyperbole. They provided the best Hotel rooms, standard lodges with quality dinner and foods. Our guide created a plan to perform the short Everest Base Camp and this trip easily finished with a humble guide. The trek was about a stunning view of snowcapped mountains and glacier-fed river and landscape which grows increasingly and also the weather was bright - clear blue sky with no rain and otherworldly scenery. Climbing into the top hill behind Namche Bazaar you are rewarded with the very first view of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse to the north. This area is truly rich by diversity, ethnic groups, and civilization. I heard so much about hiking and Nepali culture during the trek and 100% recommend Hiking Annapurna trekking and tours Nepal.
