During the devastating earthquake of 2015, I was watching the horrifying scenes of buildings collapsed and mass destruction on my television set. Me and my family members especially my wife Sarah wanted to help Nepalese people. Unfortunately, we couldn’t plan the holiday at that time. Luckily one of my cousins Andy recommended me the Nepal Hiking Trek for my first holiday in Nepal. It was the most anticipated tour for me. I wasn’t sure of what to do in Nepal. I had inquired with lots of the trekking and travel company of Nepal. Most of the companies offered me rates which were not acceptable for me. After Andy’s recommendation, I talked with the owner of the Nepal Hiking Trek Mr. Hari Dharel. He was so happy that I am coming to visit Nepal. His sole concern was that people should go to Nepal regardless of which travel company they choose. This is the main thing that I really got impressed with Mr. Dharel. During our conversation he suggested me to do Everest Base Camp Trek.
He had this very interesting way of providing suggestions. He stated that I would find the villages of the Sherpa, temperate to alpine forests, more than 20 snow-capped peaks, moraines, glacier and the chance to leave my footprints on the iconic base camp of the world’s tallest mountain Mt. Everest. For me, his presentation and very reasonable Everest Base Camp Trek cost lured to do the trek. Together with my brother Sam, Sarah and 2nd cousin Robert set out Nepal.
Upon our arrival at the airport of Nepal, we were panicked as the luggage didn’t arrive on time. Once we were outside the airport Mr. Dharel was at the gate holding my name in the placard. He put us on the garland which is a part of Nepalese tradition and transferred us to Apsara Boutique hotel in Thamel. We found him very professional and energetic. Before our arrival, he had already prepared our TIMS and permit for the trekking. He briefed us about an entire trip and left us to be picked up early morning around 5 a.m.
The illustrious journey started with the early morning flight to Lukla. This airport is still considered as the most extreme airport in the world. It has a very small runway and the dead-end hill at the end of the runway. Once we met our porters and one Sherpa we headed to Phakding on that day. The food served throughout the trekking period was outstanding. All of us were talking that we really got the best Everest Base Camp Trek cost. We were served lots of high priced food items too. My small suggestions to all that you should carry an extra dollar for the hot water because our guide Dharel told us to drink as much water as possible to avoid altitude sickness.
The journey headed to Namche Bazaar (Sherpa Capital), Tengboche (Monastery Hill Station), Dingboche (Windy Valley blessed by Ama Dablam Mountain), Lobuche (Himalayan tea houses camping spots) and Gorakshep at the foothill of Kalapathar and crossroad to the Everest Base Camp. Once we were in the Everest Base Camp I really felt very proud. I was so happy and blessed because my body and soul along with the footprints will be together with the famous personalities of the Everest Region like Rob Hall, Scott Fischer, Sir Edmund Hillary, Tenzing Norgay, etc. The gorgeous view of the sun shining at the horizon with the first ray of the day really is the most favorite one for me. The sun rising view from Kalapathar too helped us identify mountains of all direction lying in the Khumbu region of Nepal.
While returning back our guide Mr. Dharel told us that you should be very curious while returning. This is because while returning back you will see more places. My holiday in Nepal ended very perfectly as I got impeccable hospitality and quality service from the trekking crew members.
