    Awesome experience 

    Rating:

    We stayed at Deepak’s hotel, ‘Hotel Florid’ in Kathmandu. We booked a porter-come-guide at the hotel. Our guide/porter ‘Rabin’ was extremely helpful and nothing was ever a problem for him. We’d recommend you request him for your trek. Whatever we wanted, he made happen. We know he was exceptionally good because after speaking to other westerners, we found out serval of them had small issues and problems with their guides and porters.  We did EBC and then planned on the 3 passes and Gokyo to see the lakes. We enjoyed Gokyo the most and if we had to choose, would do that over EBC. Deepak was also extremely helpful when ever we had a problem. There was constant and clear communication via a cell phone that our guide carried. Any problems were fixed right away. We weren’t left on our own in sticky situations and when I got altitude sickness we got the proper advise and management from Deepak. We felt taken care of and guided every set of the way, which meant we had a smooth and enjoyable trek.  Book ‘Rabin’ as your guide and stay at ‘Hotel Florid’ in Kathmandu. Eat at ‘The third eye’ in Kathmandu for great Indian food and book a trip through mountain rock treks.
