It was our first time to visit KTM and do such an extreme trekking. Overall experience throughout our journey to base camp were excellent and hassle free-thanks to Mr. Kedar of Actual Adventure and owner of Alpine Hotel who made it sure that everything is taken care off upon our arrival till we departs Kathmandu. We were so pampered and overwhelmed with how they welcome and assist us on all our needs.
With a very fair price Mr. Kedar appointed a very good and well trained guide - Vinod who does more than he should do. He certainly know the place and every bit of details we require in order for us to make it till EBC. He even assist us during meals making sure that we are all comfortable and all set before he have his own meal. We had a great time with him.
We also have a 2 porter - Dilip and Tikka who always made us laugh even when we are tired. They made our lives easier by carrying load more than the max limit they should bring. We honestly won't finish the trek if not with them.
Well everything about our trip is amazing and worth every cent and time we spent. I would definitely reccomend Mr. Kedar and team for your future travel plans to Kathmandu
