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!
It was very successful and memorable trek of my life. i had always a dream that to see the Highest peak of the world once in my life. MountainMate become my dream maker by arranging this trip in very experienced and humble way. Guide Om, Porter Lakpa sherpa had a good potential for this trek. I wanna Thank whole Team and specially to manager Mr.giri for taking my dream as his own and encouraging me to complete this trek in the age of 63. I always recommend this team for Trek in Everest Region.
Giri is not an airport scam!! He's actually an experienced mountain guide and a great guy starting up a trek and tour company, and I am grateful to have run into him when I arrived in Kathmandu. He sorted out the perfect trek to EBC for me, and was always on hand to perform last minute changes to the itinerary and check in on us. After doing due diligence on other trek companies, I can vouch that he also provided a competitive price. Will use Mountain Mate next time I am in Nepal!
