    Base camp trek


    A group of ten of us went to Everest Base Camp with Adventure Club in April and it was such a great experience. I mean, the base camp trek is always going to be great regardless of how you get there but for us it was Sonam, Bhim and Kali, our guides, who made it incredible. I felt so looked after and they were fun, friendly and really patient with all of us. By the time we got to where we were staying for the night our rooms were already booked and we just had to sit down and order food. No hassle at all. The porters were great too and they only carry two bags which, for me, is really important. We saw too many porters carrying way too much weight on this trek and it means a lot to me that Adventure Club treat their porters fairly. Our flight to Lukla was cancelled twice due to weather and Birendra made sure we were taken back to our hotel safely, got our flights rebooked and made sure we were picked up on time in the morning. He dealt with everything, we didn't have to lift a finger. Absolute professional. All in all it's a brilliant company who will look after you from start to finish. All you have to do is show up and walk.
