Being the wrong side of 70 the only thing left on my bucket list was to see Mount Everest. I noticed that Nepal Mountain Trekkers did a trek up to the Hotel Everest View which was just what I wanted. Well. I chose the right company. Ramesh and his team are very experienced and they are also lovely people. Right from the outset Ramesh was brilliant. He planned my trek and always promptly answered all my questions. I was going to hire a duffel bag, sleeping bag and quilt jacket but they happened to have spares so lent me those. He couldn't have done more to help. My guide Suman met me at the airport on arrival and nobody could have looked after me better during the whole experience. When plans went slightly awry ie. cancelled flights Suman was always able to come up with the best alternatives. He is a lovely man, he carried my bags all the way, and couldn't have looked after me better. I've had a wonderful challenging experience and I thank Nepal Mountain Trekkers for it.

My wife and I with another couple (all in our mid 60s) went on a "Everest Base Camp tour" with helicopter from Air Dynasty. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience seeing the majestic Mt Everest. The helicopter took us to Everest View Hotel for a breakfast stop before going back to the base. Mr Ramesh Dhakal from Nepal Mountain Trekkers organized the tour for us. I would highly recommend Ramesh for his very efficient and professional service.

I describe our trip to the Mount Everest View point with one word: AMAZING Everything was perfect. During our trek we had the whole time a comfortable feeling. We arrived in Kathmandu and our guide picked us up at the airport and joined us to our hotel. The hotel was beautiful. It is a small paradise inside Kathmandu. We had the feeling like home. (Hotel Horizon Kathmandu) Our trip starts on the next day with a fly to Lukla. The first adventure during our trip. After the arrival in Lukla we start our trek with the target Mount Everest view hotel. The landscape during the whole time was amazing. We need three days to arrive the hotel. During this time we slept in Tea Houses and the organization was blameless. After the arriving we had the perfect view to the Mount Everest. The feeling was amazing during this moment. We had the perfect Landscape with all the great peaks. On the next day we started the trek back to Lukla and flight back to Kathmandu on the next morning. Resume: During the trip we had a comfortable feeling. Everything was perfect. Are you watching for a one week trip with the perfect landscape and the final view to the Mount Everest? Take this trek. But the trek was more than an amazing landscape and the Mount Everest. You can feel the peaceful atmosphere in the mountains of Nepal and you have a lot of contact to the native people. These people are really amazing. Thank you to the Team of Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Thank you to Ramesh and to Bisang .It was beautiful.

Everest view Trekk mit schönen Aussichten und einem Guide, der auf alles achtet. Ich bin immer wieder in Nepal , nur habe ich mich in solche Höhen noch nie getraut. Es braucht schon etwas Vorbereitung , denn man muss fit sein für so ein Vorhaben. Schon allein der Flug nach Lukla ist ein Abenteuer für sich . Man sieht Berge und Menschen , die mit wenigen Worten nicht zu beschreiben sind . Mit Suman war ich auf einen wunderschönen Weg unterwegs .Jedes mal, wenn er merkte, dass ich an meine Grenzen gekommen bin, wurde erst mal eine kleine Rast eingelegt, so dass ich mich immer wohl und gut aufgehoben gefühlt habe. So konnte ich den ganzen Weg geniessen. Vor allem war ich sehr fasziniert, wie die Menschen da oben leben und wie herzlich sie doch sind. Der Weg alleine, ist mit all seinen Aussichten und seiner Geschichte , diese Reise wert. Noch einmal vielen Dank für die liebe Beratung und einen Freund, der mir immer zur Seite gestanden hat.
