Good day Tramping Himalaya,
My name is Alexander Freeman. The review which I wish to make concerns my trip between the dates of 27th August until the 18th September.
When I look to travel, my number one criteria with the booking agent is ‘Trust’. Dawa is a person who I can trust. His experience is second to none, which allows me as a tourist to feel completely relaxed in his hands.
Dawa was pro-active in the organising my trip and provided detailed answers to any prospective questions I had. Dawa is the man for any trip in the Sagarmartha National Park.
My trekking guide Hom was very professional and a warm person. Any problems I had or nuances on which I was concerned, Hom was knowledgeable and acted promptly to help me, for example organising Hot Showers in Pangboche. His english is fluent and sounds like that of a local Englishman! After a well organised first few weeks, I met Hemanta and Lhakpa. Both are very, very good at what they do. They supported me with my ropes, crampons and verbal support. They both put me first, and made sure always that my health was looked after. All lodges chosen for me are well-run, comfortable and the food is tasty. Everyday my Climibing Guide, Hom, would ask ‘What time would you like to leave?’, these questions allowed me to feel as though this was a private tour, and was fixed on my preferences.
The climbing equipment which I hired was more than adequate for my needs, this was all organised for me in advance by Dawa. It all ran smoothly, in fact all I did was hike!
Tramping Himalaya offers a professional hiking service with a personal touch. The team consists of knowledgeable members, whose experience ensures a successful trip to any part of the Sagarmartha National Park.
I am lucky to know Dawa, Hemanta, Lhakpa and Hom (to whom I also wish his mother has made a swift recovery). In all the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu, it is wonderful meeting your trek co-ordinator to discuss your up and coming trip.
In 2 years, I will be returning to hopefully summit Baruntse and increase my portfolio in that region, and I will be using Tramping Himalaya to organise this trip. If you are looking to travel to Everest Base Camp, hike through the 3 passes or Summit high altitude peaks, Tramping Himalaya are the company for you.
With warm regards,
