Nepal is a trekkers paradise, with fluttering prayer flags and smiling people everywhere you go. The Himalayan mountain range is truly a bucket list adventure. I created this walking trip after my life changing hike to Everest Base Camp with my parents (in their 70’s!). I’d spent extensive time in this part of the world yet Nepal was, by far, the most profound travel in Asia.
Trekking to Everest Base Camp wasn’t easy and I saw many other groups struggling. Larger clients were trundling behind their tour group of younger, fitter people – struggling to keep up. They were restricted in their abilities partly because the guides took them on routes too difficult. Because as you probably know, being heavier can make it harder to hike long distances.
In these moments, I saw how fortunate I was to have wonderful guides and I wanted to share with the world!
So I got to work setting up destination partners to work with me on a personalized itinerary. Together, we assembled a team of the best-suited guides, adjusting some routes and lodging. Nepal lodging style in the Everest Base Camp trek was very basic, so I’ve coordinated for the most upgraded lodging possible throughout the trip. We also have extra guide support that will provide additional safety, should someone in the group need to turn back.
