The trekking was very good. Also as we had a small group all the arrangements were good. As we did not expected more snow it was fun walking in snow for full day to reach the ABC. The view was spectacular at the base camp and got quiet good photos. Guide/Porter was very co-operating and helped us a lot while walking in the snow (as we did not had proper shoes to trek in snow :) )

The trek was really good, there’s lodges in the whole route , you can carry less for the trek, the view of trek is awesome , the guide and porter are helpful

The trek was exhilarating! Since we went during off-season/ monsoon season, it was not as crowded as every one told it generally is. We were just two women in our group, and the guide and porter were very helpful and friendly. However, we felt the communication could have been more proactive from the vendor agency. But the arrangements came together in the end, so no issues. Thrillophilia's rating for difficulty level is apt. This trek is not for anyone who doesn't work out on a daily basis. But as the trek gets difficult, so do the rewards, in terms of the views. Overall, it was everything I wanted and more, I loved the experience of the trek and had no difficulties along the way. I wanted a thrilling and difficult trek, full of breathtaking moments, filled with peace and quiet, so I got that and a sense of being close to heaven and the gods!
Excellent
"Amazing experience overall"
I traveled with my family to Nepal and we had a great time together, this package from Thrillophilia was very fulfilling and satisfying one especially the itinerary was perfectly planned and the services too were good as the staff was super friendly and really caring about us right from the airport, we get picked-up on time with a warm welcome from the representative. All the way we enjoyed the scenic beauty of the place the hills and lush greenery which already gave us good pictures from the start, the sightseeing places were truly breathtaking, educational and impressive which we get to know and learn about their culture and custom. Well-maintained and beautiful temples with lots of blessings. At Phewa Lake, we had great fun in boating and felt with the beauty of it... All over the arrangements were greatly arranged with good hotels and transport. Incredible Nepal will revisit again.
Very skillful pilot and very special experience. I won't be getting tired doing this adventure again and again. I wish I can have more days in this beautiful landscape.
