I found Himalayan Advisor through a link in National Geographic's magazine The 100 greatests vacations. I recieved prompt communication about my interest, and it continued throughout the many questions I had until I booked. I was enthuastically met at the airport and escorted to a very nice hotel. The tours and restaurants were well organised and the trek to Mount Everest Basecamp was amazinag! even a different high ridge trail on the way back was a delight. The guide and porter were well informed and aware of my comforts and needs. They became endeared people in my heart. I plan on booking again in the future and will be advising my friends. I also found them to be socially active about their community and not all about pure profit; my guide also gave me tours of some schools and a local hospital in Lukla. I am so happy that I stumble across their link.
I recently traveled to Nepal for the Everest Base Camp trek with a close friend. It was his bucket list trip so he did all the research and planning for the trip while I sat back and enjoyed the results of his labor. He found Himalayan Advisor through a link in National Geographic's magazine "The 100 greatest vacations". He always received prompt communication about the trip. This type of prompt service continued throughout the many questions we had leading up to our departure. I was surprised that we were met like old friends at the airport by our trip consultant Rishi, recognizing us immediately due to our communications through facebook. We were escorted to a very nice hotel, The Shankar in Kathmandu. The tours and restaurants in Kathmandu were well organized and top of the line. The trek to Mount Everest Base camp was amazing and we had plenty of time to enjoy the incredible views. Our guide and porter, were well informed and aware of our comforts and needs and always put our safety as their top priority. They became like family to us and we truly hope to meet again someday. I would plan on booking with Himalayan Advisor again in the future if my travels take me back to Nepal or Tibet.
