12 days Everest base camp treks

Jamatul Khan , 10/27/2017

I booked a EBC trek with sanjib as he came highly recommended of Tripadvisor and other forums. The guys were fantastic, they have excellent knowledge of the area and provided wealth of advise/information about the trek, safety during trek,things to do after the trek. I was initially a little disappointed on the day of the trek that Sanjib was not our guide as I had this trek booked way in advance but I quickly got over. Sarjon (Sanjib's brother) was a young man with wealth of knowledge and easy going attitude and experienced guide who provided assistance when required.

Many of the Staff were always on hand to help particularly after the trek and very helpful arranging other activities during rest of our stay. I would definitely recommend Nepal Planet Trek and their Service.
