Everest Base Camp and Island Peak Together

High in the Khumbu, close to Everest, attach with south face of Lhotse, there is small peak named Island Peak at hight of 6189m raise above Chukung valleys. It can be seen from Dingboche village, rest place for all climbers. With its outrageous location, easy excess and beautiful summit ridge, this has been one of the best choice among our clients. Those who been to Everest Base Camp they normally wish to go back and climb island peak, beach it is tempting and its exciting to be very close to Giant peak Lhotse and Everest. This 20 days trip to Everest base camp and climbing island peak is one of the favourite among the many alpine hikers.One reason is they can do all three stunning adventure in one time.

We start out trip Kathmandu as many others trip, we fly to Lukla and follow the path of Khumbu region via, Namche bazaar, Thengbuche monastery for Prayers and blessing from local buddhist monks, then we slowly take our journey towards Everest.

We hike up to Everest Base camp first,  and make the ascent of the classic viewpoint of Kala Patar to see magnificent view of Everest. Well acclimatised, then we cross the Khumbu Glacier, trek up to the Kongma La 5535m, another great pass, and drop down to the summer grazing settlement of Chukung in the valley of the Imja glacier River. From Chukung village, we trek up beside the glacial lake of Imja River to Island Peak Basecamp at just over 5000 metres elevation. The ascent of this 6000 metre peak in the shadow of the huge Lhotse face is an ‘alpine experience’ in every sense, offering fine climbing in exposed situations amongst breathtaking scenery. This is one of the best of all Alpine trek and climb in Nepal with Namaste Nomad.

You either choose to just do Everest Base Camp or you can only do island peak, both are amazing, but if you have energy, courage, and passion for little more adventure them this trip is one of the best.

Its includes 4 most exciting adventure place in one titinerary. We do this trip yearly for our special group departure, we take unto 14 people in one group and minimum of 1 person. If you are couple, individual, or with groups of friends you are all welcome to join us in this must exciting trip in Himalayan.

Day 1: We pick you up from Airport, Meet at the group hotel in Kathmandu.

Arrive at hotel Moonlight in centre of down town Kathmandu. Our guides will help you to exchange currency and introduce to your rooms and food facilities. Later Meeting with out lead guide, sherpas for trip information and dinner together. You do all questions answer today.

Day 2: Drive to Ramechhap Airport, fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2610m)

Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal ruled that flights to and from Lukla, it is operate through Ramechhap rather than Kathmandu for now). Following an early pick-up from our hotel we drive for approximately 4 hours to Ramechhap Airport where we check in for the 20-minute flight to Lukla (2840m). Landing on the narrow, sloping runway in the heart of the mountains is a very spectacular way to reach the Khumbu. We have lunch at Lukla, meet our trekking crew and set off on the first stage of our trek to Everest Basecamp. The short and very pleasant afternoon’s walk leads down to the river then northwards through a number of villages to our lodge in Phakding (2610m)

Day 3: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3400m).

A very pleasant walk by the river through pine forest today. We pass the entrance to the Khumbu National Park where details of our permits are recorded and then drop down again to the river which we cross on a iconic suspension bridge. We will pass few nice villages on the way and witness life of people in this valley. We make a final crossing here on a spectacular high suspension bridge and then begin an hour and half long ascent to Namche Bazaar (3440m) on a wide switch-back trail. This is the hard part of the tail of today’s otherwise quite gentle ascent, and one of the steepest of the trek. Just over halfway up this last hill to Namche, we gain our first views of Everest.  Many of the Sherpas that own lodges, cafes and shops in the town have visited cities in the USA and Europe and have brought back all sorts of concepts. Today you can find in Namche, German bakeries, Italian coffee, Irish pubs, pool halls, and hot showers.

Day 4: Namche Bazaar with an optional acclimatisation walk for Everest views.

Today is very important day of the trek and first day you will feel less oxygen in you breath. It’s an rest day, but we still Hike. We visit local monastery for prayer on the way to our first 4000mtr hike of this trip to Everest view point, It is a great place to spend an acclimatisation day before going higher. sometimes we take you to next label to village of Khumjung (3780m). Either of these options provides superb views of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse and Everest. Sometimes we also change our plan according to group dynamic. if groups seems fit then we will spend night in Khumjung village and keep shorter distance for next day and get more rest and more explore of area. Speak night with attach bath room with hot shower facilities.

Day 5: Trek Thyangboche monastery (3860m)

A relatively easy day of trekking, although at this altitude it will still feel tough on the uphill section to Tyangboche at the end of the day. The trail today is spectacular in terms of scenery. Views of  wonderful Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam can be seen, its unto the clouds. . At the end of this contour trail is the tiny settlement of Kangjuma where various items of local art and craft, jewelry and even yak bells are laid out to entice passing trekkers to buy a souvenir of their visit. From Kangjuma the trail descends to a bridge across the Imja River at Phunki. Beyond the river, we climb a long ridge to Thyangboche (3860m), the location of one of Nepal’s finest monasteries. We have the chance to look around the monastery and the visitor centre there. This is a popular place to overnight as it not only affords a good view of the Everest/Lhotse massif but is also the classic viewpoint for Ama Dablam. If we reach early we may go little further to Dibuche for tonight. Again it’s depends on the group dynamic. We are flexible and we can manage changes or our accommodation quite easily as we have know this area from childhood. Good accommodation is priority for tonight.

Day 6: Trek to Dingboche (4410m) rest and sleepy village and gateway to High peaks.

After breakfast at the lodge, we trek for a couple of hours to the village of Pangboche, where there is the oldest monastery in the Khumbu, and then it is a further 3 hours walking, gaining height very gradually, to Dingboche village (4410m) at the entrance to the Khumbu Valley. We will be staying in Moonlight lodge, very friendly man who runs the lodge and he like to speak and make joke with everyone. Altho he is very supportive and kind.

Day 7: Acclimatization ascent of Nangkartshang Peak (5083m)

Today is rest day but not rest from hiking. We will do first 5000 meter ascent today. In our idea acclimatisation here is very helpful and we will spend two nights at this altitude before moving further up the Khumbu valley. We make a day hike up to the fantastic viewpoint of Nangkartshang Peak (5083m). This will be a tough climb at this stage of our acclimatisation but well worth it for the sensational views of Kangtega, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Lobuche Peak and Taboche. We prefer to do this after breakfast slowly and carry enough supply and water for route. We can return for Lunch and rest. Rest also means no sleep during the light in high altitude. Otherwise you will not be able to sleep at night.

Day 8: Trek to Lobuche (4910m) camp

The trek today follows the Khumbu Valley and climbs to the tiny river side cafes and lodges at Dugla we may have some biscuits and tea break. Shortly thereafter we climb to reach the memorial to those Sherpas and climbers who have died on Mount Everest. Here, the trail starts to get flat till the Khumbu Glacier to Lobuche (4910m) opposite of giants peaks Nuptse and Lhotse.

Day 9: Trek to Everest Basecamp and return to Gorak Shep. (5140m).

It will be early start, keep you head lamp on, we begin by following a trail through the ablation valley at the side of the Khumbu Glacier gaining height steadily, on the way we can see the great Khumbu Glacier stretching away down valley and also up towards the area of base camp. then we reach below the famous hill known as Kala Pattar. This place is Gorak Shep, once a summer yak herding meadow in the middle of nowhere, this remote spot now boasts several of the highest lodges in Nepal. Accommodation are very basic here and everything is expensive to buy, still stay away from alcohol and meats. We stop for tea here in gorekshep and head towards Everest base camp, outside of the  Spring climbing season, it is unlikely that we will see any expedition tents here but the place itself is quite inspirational and story situated close beneath the stupendous Khumbu Icefall. You will feel emotional and it is normal. After visit base camp we return  to Gorak Shep. It is possible to return all the way to Lobuche in one long day, but spending a night here at these high lodges  and climbing kalapatthar in the morning , it will greatly assist our acclimatisation for Island Peak.

Day 10: Morning ascent of Kala Patar (5500m) for classic view of Everest. Descend to Lobuche(4910m).

This morning we make 2-3 hour ascent of Kala Patar. At around 5500 metres, this is one of the finest viewpoints for Everest and the Khumbu Valley. Depending on the weather and the condition of the group at this point, after return to Gorak Shep for some refreshment we then decent our steps to Lobuche. Spend night in labuche.

Day 11: Trek across the Kongma La (5400m) to Chukung (4730m).

From Lobuche, we make a crossing of the Khumbu Glacier.  We then make the ascent to the Kongma La (5535m). The climb to the pass is steep, at first following a trail on a grassy hillside and then on a good path which zig-zags its way to the top of a scree slope. It will take a total of 3 hours or so from the glacier to the summit of the pass. View of Lhotse-Nuptse wall, the panorama includes Gauri Shankar, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Pumori and the distant peaks of Tibet. Not many trekkers crossed this pass and is something of a hidden gem. Now we walk trail across yak pastures which takes us down to Chukung village in the Imja Valley. Village is fully gadded by towering south face of Lhotse. From here we can also see our another destination Island Peak.

Day 12: Trek to Island Peak Base Camp (5040m)

After all his altitude we are already becoming more use to with condition. Today easy day’s walking to Island Peak Basecamp. The trail crosses the river by the last tea shop and follows a beautiful ablation valley for 2 hours. Basecamp is at 5040 metres by the side of the Imja Glacier, below steep grassy slopes which mark the start of the climb on Island Peak. We usually attempt Climbing from base camp, But sometimes it’s sensible to climb little further up to high bace camp just below, crampon point.  The afternoon is spent sorting gear for the climb or preparing for the move to high camp the following day. If there are any group members who do not intend to attempt Island Peak, there is the alternative of a trek to the head of the Imja Valley. Its normal to change mind depends on how You feelings. if you gut feelings is saying I done enough and I wish to stay low thats is completely fine. We have other tons for you then. still exciting.

Day 13: Acclimatization or move to High Camp (5760m)

This is a day for further acclimatisation prior to our ascent of Island Peak. The group have a couple of options. We may decide to use an intermediary camp and if this option is taken, today will be relatively easy with a 2 – 3 hour climb to a high camp at 5760 metres. This camp is situated on some levelled ledges half way up the rock buttress which leads onto the Island Peak Glacier. It is quite a small campsite, and often short of water, but it suffices for one night and offers spectacular views across to Baruntse and the Amphu Labtsa pass. If the option is taken to climb Island Peak from the base camp there will be the opportunity for some skills practice before a good rest and general preparation for tomorrow’s climb. Your trip leaders will decide how best to use this day.

Day 14: Ascent of Island Peak (6189m) and return to basecamp or to Chukung.

From the base camp a midnight start is required. If we have elected to make the climb from a high camp we will set off around 3 am. From the area of the high camp we climb over scree and boulders for 45 minutes to an hour to reach a narrow, rocky ridge leading on to the glacier. This is the place to rope up and put on crampons as the most interesting part of the climb begins with the glacier crossing. The setting couldn’t be more impressive with the mountains of Ama Dablam, Chamlang, and Baruntse painted by the dawn’s light. We weave a route across the fairly level glacier to the bottom of a snow gully leading to the summit ridge. Here the guides fix a rope, and jumars are used to safeguard this section. The climbing is more interesting than technical, but steepens up to nearly 50 degrees in places. After approximately 200 metres, the summit ridge is gained and Lhotse’s vast South Face looms before us. Again the guides will place fixed lines on some sections of this undulating and sometimes corniced ridge. A final steep pitch brings us to the actual summit (6189m) which has space enough for everyone to sit down and take in the vastness of the surroundings. Island Peak is truly an island in a sea of ice, flanked as it is by the Lhotse and Imja glaciers and a plethora of giant peaks. Descent is by the same route and we aim to arrive back at the basecamp by early afternoon. Depending on the fitness of the group and time available, we may wish to continue our descent to the tea houses of Chukung, a further hour and a half down valley.

Day 15: Trek via Dingboche and Pangboche to Deboche (3734m)

We leave our basecamp (or Chukung) and descend the Imja Valley on our way back to Namche Bazaar and Lukla. Beyond the villages of Dingboche, we rejoin our outbound trail and follow this down through Pangboche to camp at Deboche below the Tyangboche ridge.

Day 16: Trek via Tyangboche and Namche Bazaar to Monjo (2835m)

After an early breakfast we set off and make a short climb through the woods to Tyangboche Gompa where we have a great retrospective of the Everest/Lhotse massif and Island Peak. This is a second opportunity to visit the impressive gompa if we were not able to do so on the outbound trek. Leaving Tyangboche we descend the steep path to Phunki, where we cross the Dudh Kosi and begin the steep climb to the lodges of Kangjuma. Following the contouring trail around the hillside we suddenly arrive at the top of the bowl in which Namche Bazaar nestles. A final steep descent on stone steps leads to the main bazaar. After taking some refreshment here (or lunch if we have made good time) we continue the trek, dropping steeply down to a high suspension bridge. We follow the Dudh Kosi down with the wooded valley sides rising steeply above us. We cross the river again and climb stone steps to the entrance of the Sagamartha National Park. Here we must show our permits before continuing just a short way to our overnight halt at Monjo.

Day 17: We trek mostly downhill following the Dudh Kosi river, before the final short climb to Lukla.

From Monjo the trail descends the valley, which becomes more enclosed as we pass the villages of Phakding and Chopling, to reach Chaumrikharka. Here we begin the final climb of the trip, the sting in the tail, with a 45 minute steady ascent up to the airstrip at Lukla. Arriving at the bustling town we check into a lodge and tonight we will no doubt celebrate the end of a great trek.

Day 18: Fly to Ramechhap, drive to Kathmandu. Time for sightseeing and relaxing.

After saying goodbye to our Sherpa crew, we take the 20 minute flight to Ramechhap and from there drive to Kathmandu. Arriving in the bustling city by mid-afternoon, there is time to freshen up and change before heading into town to enjoy the particular delights of Thamel. This evening we will have a celebratory meal and reflect on our Everest adventure

Day 19: Free day in Kathmandu for sightseeing, shopping or relaxing.

This is an important contingency day in case of delays to the flights from Lukla. If we have experienced no delays this is another opportunity for independent exploration amongst the colourful streets and temples of Kathmandu. This evening we will have a celebratory dinner to mark the end of a most excellent trip.

Day 20: After breakfast transfer to Kathmandu Airport for flight home.

My serious walking career began at the age of 60, when I trekked with Mohan of Namaste Nomad in Ladakh. Since then I have gone back to the Himalayas with him every year: Everest Base Camp, Langtang, Island Peak... Each year I've thought it was as high as I could go, and each year I've come away wanting more. This time I hoped to attain the summit of my ambitions - to climb a 6500 metre mountain, Mera Peak, at the age of 65. Mera, known as the highest trekking peak in the world, was hard. It was steep. It was exhausting. It was wonderful. With the help of Mohan's right-hand-man, Dawa, and Nerbu, a younger sherpa; in the company of three other incredibly supportive Irish trekkers; with the amazing aid of our porters; and with the help, in my case, of copious amounts of oxygen (!), I made it to the very top. Mohan and Dawa always believed in me and did everything in their power to get me to the top. I am immensely proud to have done this, and immensely grateful to Namaste Nomad for giving me the opportunity. Seize the day, people. You are capable of so much more than you think.

Whether you’re a seasoned traveller or just first time adventurer you'll notice when you search on line for somewhere to visit that there are plenty of web sites and travel companies that seem to offer very similar packages, similar routes, similar landscapes all promising the same experience.This is my second time to Himalayas, first time to Everest base camp (with a different Irish Company). I recently travelled to Island Peak with Mohan and Namaste Nomad team. No matter how much research you do regarding a trek the experience will be a unique and personal journey for you, there are a lot of variables to consider. I enjoyed my first experience, however when I compare both treks covering similar routes albeit different destinations I cannot stress how impressed I am with the leadership, professionalism, sincerity, and uniqueness that is offered by Namaste Nomad.From the outset there is trust, honesty, and a deep motivation by Mohan and his team to understand and satisfy your reason for joining an adventure with them. Whether you travel alone (like me), as a couple, or a group of friends you will soon feel part of a wonderful group with the necessary time to oneself and others yet the room to feel like you’re on holiday although you have a mission. They offer great advice from well seasoned experienced staff, your safety and well being are always monitored and cared for, food and accommodation is lovely and varied. The people you meet, the guides and helpers, and the places you visit and stay along the way are easily passed by other tour companies.With our 2018 trek to Island Peak plans had to change due to weather conditions and our itinerary was altered and managed seamlessly by Mohan and his team with coordination with Kathmandu. This unplanned adjustment offered a window to a successful summit for the majority of our party, although we met groups who failed either side of our new summit day including a group of 19 who were left so disappointed. I am a seasoned hiker but this was my first time using ropes and having to complete some technical mountaineering, the training and equipment was provided by Mohan and his team including Dawa J Sherpa (5 time Everest summiteer) all helping to micro manage each group member on the day.The uniqueness offered by Namaste Nomad is that they genuinely care that you get the most from the adventure you choose. Other companies testify to the same but sometimes really it is left up to you to make the most of what they offer, they're running a business however to Mohan and Namaste Nomad it is more than just a business, one experience and you'll understand what I mean. They have set a real benchmark for me.

Whatever your reason for adventure Namaste Nomad holds it

I took part in a trek to Annapurna Basecamp with Namaste Nomad in April 2019. I had trekked with Mohan and his team twice before- to Langtang Valley in Nepal in March 2018 and The Picos, in Northern Spain in June 2018. This was my third trip- so I wasn’t as anxious about what awaited me in Nepal! The route to Annapurna is very accessible, the walking was tough enough, I thought- a lot of steps, which are sore on the knees! We were well looked after my our guide, Mohan, and his Sherpa team, Dowa and Mingma, as well as the rest of the team. The food, as on all the trips I’ve been on, was really superb. I loved the rice, lentils, local vegetables and of course the ginger tea! The accommodation was basic but always clean and adequate. Reaching Annapurna Basecamp was the high point of the trip for me- I will never forget it! We were part of a small group, just four hikers. I was traveling with a friend. We had both been part of larger groups on our previous two trips.I think I would prefer to travel in a bigger group if/when I go on a trip like this again. It was a great experience and I recommend Namaste Nomad.

I went to India and Ladakh with Namaste Nomad two years ago. I absolutely loved it, particularly the Himalayas. I therefore challenged myself to trek to Everest Base Camp with them. I did this last year and I can truthfully say that it was one of the most wonderful things I have ever done in my life. I am in my sixties, but the care and attention given me made everything not only manageable but immensely enjoyable. I've now signed up to climb Island Peak with Mohan and the team - my first serious Himalayan mountain. It's a prospect that fills me with a mixture of great excitement and a healthy dose of fear - but I know that I am in the safest of hands. Mohan and the team are watching you every step of the way. Safety is their number one priority, but they manage to make every trek great fun too. Bring it on!

I have just returned from the most remarkable trip of a lifetime to Everest Basecamp. I don’t usually write reviews however on this occasion I feel the need to share my experiences which I hope will inspire others to travel and to book a trip with Namaste Nomad. I booked this trip in Jan 18 after meeting with Mohan. After my initial meeting I had no doubts in travelling with Mohan and his team. Mohan is an exceptional person who is so passionate about his business and works so hard to ensure everyone meets their goal and has an amazing trip. Everest Basecamp was everything I imagined and much more. The views are breathtaking and the sense of achievement on arriving at Basecamp is so hard to put into words. The trip is a life changing experience as you learn so much about yourself and indeed about others. It really was a journey from the time of booking until we returned home from the Himalayas. I found it very challenging physically, mentally and emotionally but that’s what made it so very special. Throughout the trek Mohan was so attentive to our every need, every decision he made was the right one and his motivation and encouragement ensured we all made it successfully to Basecamp. Mohan’s knowledge of Nepal and the Himalayas is exceptional. Everything from planning the food to gauging the weather to recognising signs when some of us weren’t too well was spot on If you are considering a trek then I can honestly say that you will not get anyone better to travel with than Namaste Nomad. The team of Sherpas and Porters are incredible and the bond made with the Sherpas is one I will never forget, it really was incredible. As for value for money you will not get a more competitive price as I priced several others which were significantly more costly than Namaste Nomad Overall if you want a challenging and life changing experience then I encourage you to make that adventure with Namaste Nomad and I guarantee you will not regret it Thanks to Mohan and his team for everything, I will never forget it. Xx

The trip with namaste nomad to Everest Base Camp was truly amazing. The group I was with were also a great bunch of people and it made the trip a lot more enjoyable. The professionalism that mohan and his team of Sherpas provide is exceptional. We did see some other groups on the trip and unfortunately we could clearly see that a lot of things were not provided for them. Travelling with mohan, everything is taken care of from food to the bed you sleep in. It’s almost like you have a group of babysitters because the only thing you have to worry about is the walking !. Mohan and his team provide a safe friendly and thoroughly enjoyable journey even when you hit some hard points. I would highly recommend Namaste nomad for any trip you might want to do. From start to finish the trip was amazing !

After meeting Mohan briefly in Donegal I soon signed up to join him his team and 10 other travellers to trek Nepal's Langtang valley. Best decision ever!From the get go when we all met at Dublin airport the level of organisation and planning Mohan had put into this trip became clear. After hassle free flights Mohan had arranged for a local taxi company to meet us at the airport keeping the group together making for stress travel to the hotel, the hotel selected also was to a high standard with everyone's needs catered to.As part of our trip Mohan had arranged for Cultural shows, dinner booking and buses to Kathmandu's heritage sites including a local guide. Allowing us to make the most of our time in this culturally intriguing city.Then it was on to the trekking bit! after the 8 hour bus journey to the mountains we where treated to dinner cooked that the hotel by our guides and porters this was to be the case daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food was excellent and more importantly the level of food hygiene Mohan requires these guys work to more than meets any western standards, out of 11 people no one got any food related sickness unlike some people we met on the way who where travelling with other companies if only for this reason alone I couldn't recommend Namaste Nomad highly enough.While on the trek the scenery was simply stunning where the true beauty of the Himalayas is apparent. Making the trek all the more enjoyable was the level knowledge our guides had on the area, plants and animals, and they where only to happy to impart this on us. While being the real professionals they where also great company through out.For most of the group including myself it was our first team at high altitude, and the focus on everyone's safety from Mohan and team was very evident. Something we all found extremely reassuring allowing you to enjoy the trek knowing that you are in good hands. In turn giving us the confidants to make the optional climb to 4800m an experience that will simply leave you gob smacked with a real sense of achievement.After this we made the trek back down through the valley which was an absolute delight with everyone on a high after what had been an unforgettable experience and achievement. With another couple of days to spend in Kathmandu it was a great way to round off the trip.I have already signed up to trek to Everest base camp in September 2019 and that in it self is properly best recommendation I could possibly give.

This was the second trip I booked with Namaste Nomad. The first was hiking to Everest Base Camp which was a phenomenal trip! I placed a deposit on Bhutan before I left Nepal due to the shear genuineness of Mohan. He is very thorough in ensuring a safe and successful trip. In Bhutan he was open to group needs and used this information to organize alternative to the original plans. The group I was with had great communication between so that we could make choices that benefitted all of us. If you are thinking of traveling abroad and you love realism in your travels this is the company to book with. You will get the chance to see everyday life in your travels vs sitting on a tour bus skipping the realities of life outside.

Best company and personal guided trekking in Himalayas. I been to NEPAL few times and I have done trek in Annapurna circuit with travel company from Dublin ( not fair to say name?) That company collaborate with Nepali local company. This time I choose Namaste Nomad after friend of mine recommend Mohan from donegal ( he is nepali origin Irish citizen and previously worked in Himalayas as #sherpa and guide) I checked the website and see the cost of EBC, compare to other company from Ireland he was very cheap but his itinerary and service looks similar. It was bit hard design to take after seeing price as don't know why he is very cheap and rest are expansive. But now I can say it was the best design. After my #ebc trek with Mohan and Dawa I understand that they deal direct and no middle man. They have oxygen, emergency satellite phone, madicle kit, and we were guided by 5 time Everest summiter one of the humble guy Dawa Sherpa. I am so thankful that I made it to Everest Base Camp. Going up all food was dairy free and no meat, it was hard but great vegetrain food for healthy body and its safe and no sickness. In high altitude Mohan says meat and dairy dosent digest properly that's why many people are tummy sick and get altitude sickness in high places. Many big company doesn't care this much in details , probably no experience in field. Mohan and Dawa have great knowledge and so much caring. Mohan have great links with domestic Air and hotels and markets in Kathmandu also along the trek in tea houses it makes trip very flexible, he was able to change few places in itinerary in our demands. Instead of staying in Namche 2 night we travel to #khumjung like that didn't happen in last trip.Arrival dinner in Kathmandu was free and very well organise evening. Well breafing pre trek. Early flights in and out from lukla. No hassel at all. Luggage store in Kathmandu, Hotel moonlight is best place to stay just back of thamel and 1 minute from Everest Irish Pub 😁. Great rooms and nice beer garden in back. Sightseen was include in trip as well. Overall it was the best adventure holiday so far.I am already decided to do Meera peak with Mohan and Namaste Nomad next year.I fully recommend this small but amizing company for you epic trip to Himalayas.
