Everest Base Camp Trek Experience !!
The Everest Base Camp Trek with Deepak as a guide was probably the best experience of my life. It’s important to have someone taking care of you and looking up to your well-being, safety, and comfort while you are facing an experience as challenging. Deepak took care of booking the best and most comfortable accommodations all along the way, ordering our food, getting all the tickets (plane, national park, etc) since they were included in the price, and helped us manage the high properly (we had NO issues at all under his watch) and most importantly was super involved in making our experience perfect. We become friends with both Guide and Sherpa along the way.
I wouldn’t have imagined how amazing this experience would be. I am forever grateful to Deepak and his company, who also took care of helping us get last-minute clothes since our bags were delayed 12 days (this was completely out of their scope of work, and they did it only out of kindness and devotion to their job). I would definitely recommend anyone who makes this experience with World Alpine Treks, a great and very professional company, and most important, owned by great people.
