I recently completed a Trek to Everest Base Camp that I booked with Himalayan Vista Trekking This turned out to be the best adventure of my life.
In my opinion Himalayan Vista is the best company to book any type of trip that you may be considering to take in Nepal. From the time of arrival to departure, the agency owner Surya Shrestha personally ensured that all of our needs and wishes were addressed as quickly as possible.
We enjoyed a tour of Kathmandu during our first day in Nepal with a very knowledgable tour guide who showed us several of the city attractions. He took his time and answered all of our questions about the Nepal culture and included how the people live in harmony with varied religious beliefs.
The flight to Lukla must be experienced by all. There are great first looks at the Himalayas. The trekking begins after a nice breakfast in a guesthouse in Lukla. Don’t forget to keep your camera available for a quick pic all of the time. You never know when an unusual or just beautifully scenic photo op will avail itself.
The trek itself is not a walk in the park. There are many ups and downs along the trail. Anyone can do it, but prepare yourself for more than a trip around the block.
Our guide, and our Porter, were great. They were both very personable and a real joy to take the trip with. They were knowledgable of the details of the mountains as well as many of the plants that we encountered along the way. We also got to enjoy nightly card games with them as well as others who wished to join in.
The trek itself is breathtakingly beautiful and memorable. There are many tea houses to enjoy along the route to Base Camp. It is also a must to go to the top of Kala Pathar. We enjoyed an early morning hike and arrived at the top just as the the morning sun was beginning to shine on the Himalayas.
Himalayan Vista also worked well with us, when we chose to adjust our itinerary. They are flexible and committed to ensuring that the client is happy in all aspects of their trip.
Bottom line is that this trip was the BEST EVER!!!

Thanks to Asian Journeys team for making our dream come true. I and My friend used Asian Journeys for Everest Base Camp in October 2016 and enjoyed the trek with their expert team. Without Asian Journey‘s professional help and work we would not be able to do this amazing journey.
We would like to thank Babu and our guide for this adventure, who is very professional and reliable, it was a pleasure having him with us during the trek.
I will definitely come back to Nepal soon and will use Asian Journey’s Team for another trip.
