From midth October thru midth November 2019 I was with my 20 year old son and my husband on a breathtaking and unforgettable trek: Kanchenjunga South and North BC. From the first day in Kathmandu, when a very academic and nice guide showed us around all the beautiful sites in the city to our very last goodbye at Kathmandu international airport Himal organised our trek in every respect perfectly well. We had an absolute caring and adorable guide , Tek, whom we consider now a member of our family and two very nice porters, Dill and Birr. All of them were really very very well taking care of us, bringing us tea at every arrival in the lodges and making us feel very safe and comfortable. Every time when Tek considered it necessary, he stood in the kitchens himself, cooking for us the meals. He also is an amazing cook! He has a wide knowledge of the religions in Nepal, of every peak and mountain along our journey and he knows the people in all the guetshouses alongside our trek for a long time, which made us feel also very comfortable and as if being part of the family! We consider going again on a journey inNepal and surely again with Visit Himalaya Treks Ltd and with Tek, Dill and Birr!! Thank you so much for everything!
Namaste, Claudia können
