Reaching base camp was the goal. But the journey there and back was more than I had dreamed of. To experience the culture, interact with the local people and learn about their customs, visit Buddhist and Hindu temples and walk across the suspensions bridges, was a really joy. All in one of the most beautiful scenic settings I have ever seen.
Everest Base camp Trek was always my dream. Mountain Mate Trek Team organised an amazing trip - I felt looked after, experienced incredible beauty of Himalayas, and brought back unforgettable experience. It was all I imagined and more!
