If you are thinking of trekking in Nepal then it would be hard to go past
Grande Adventures. Vijay and his team surpassed all our expectations. Even before we
arrived our queries and concerns were explained in every detail. He was polite and
genuinely interested in helping us achieve our goal (EBC). During the trek he was in
contact with our guide each day and itineraries were adjusted to suit our needs. We
did not actually achieve our goal but did make it as far as Dingbouche. We were
stopped by a combination of altitude effects and onset of influenza which we
probably picked up on the plane going to Nepal. Even then our return to Lukla was
organised without any hassles by Mr Lama our guide.
Mr L seems to have been chosen to accommodate our specific needs. We are both over
70 years old and did the seniors trek, Mr L understood all of our concerns and made
appropriate decisions to make everything as enjoyable as possible. He was well
versed in the local history and geography. He has contacts, it seems, in every
village and tea house which made for many interesting conversations. Overall a
genuinely caring and gentle man.
Grande Adventures is highly recommend, totally professional and and highly
organised. Would recommend without hesitation.
