Pasang Sherpa was an amazing director and host. I did this trip solo, as the pandemic made it difficult to find others willing to go. The airports were a bit daunting at times, but once the planes touched down and the guides/drivers, Mukea and Tendi, greeted me at the airport with each flight, I was embraced with a special attention and expertise. I approached this trip with the intention to learn of Buddhism, Hinduism, and the Eastern Philosophy, on a journey of physical challenge and spiritual enlightenment and I was not disappointed! I spent a fair amount of time visiting monasteries, temples, nunneries and sacred sites; very moving and inspirational. This collective experience helped to propel me up the mountains when my body pushed back. My guide and porter, Nuru and Karme, were amazing! They paid very special attention to me and made sure I was taken care of at every bend. They were very patient with me as my age, 60, seemed to impact me more than I had anticipated. I made all the summits, finding Nagarjun Hill especially grueling, but worth the view and sense of accomplishment at the top. I will forever treasure the contributions Nuru and Karme made toward making this special trip so memorable. And how lucky we were that the world's highest Irish Pub opened the day we arrived in Namche Bazar!!
Pasang tailored the trip exactly to my liking; he seemed to just know what my interests and intentions were. He even knew when to build in periods of rest and breaks; though I am an ambitious traveler and adventurer, there were times when some downtime was quite welcome. Pasang was a tremendous help with all the covid testing, etc., as well. The resorts I stayed at, the Dwarika in Kathmandu, and the Temple Tree in Pokhara, were the most incredible experiences all by themselves and would highly recommend both. My guide Roger in Pokhara was quite kind and special as well. He even jumped into the frigid Lake Fewa when our boat wedged on a rock. He treated me to a lovely dinner with Dal Bhat, at his home with his family.
The helicopter ride was a highlight, from Gorakshep to Lukla, saving me the several day hike back, well worth the nominal fee. The heated mattress pads were a godsend; I was not prepared for how cold the teahouses can be, especially at the higher elevations. I was delighted with each accommodation, understanding that some of the luxuries we are used to became more scant as the elevation progressively increased. The food everywhere was fantastic; I very much enjoyed the Nepalese ethnic cuisine but have to admit the beer and pizza on occasion hit the spot! I was fortunate not to get any signs of altitude sickness and would recommend Diamox.
Pasang and Tendi even helped me to shop for a buddha statue for my shrine I look forward to creating in my home. The special touches and tailored care and attention cannot be overemphasized. I found it a bit humorous when I ran into another American on a similar expedition with a very large agency and group. He could not believe I was doing the trip solo and stated that the large company was invaluable in assuring everything went right. There is nothing that could have been better with NETTA and the individual attention I received; I’m certain the special touches and customized care and itinerary I experienced could not possibly have been done with a large group.

I did the everest base camp Helicopter trek.
I am 65 year old and i decide that is time to do it.
The trail is very busy and it seems like all the retired persons decided to meet there.
Any way it was a difficult treck for and I was very lucky to have as my guide and my porter Ihakapa Sherpa and Ngima Sherpa.
They did evrything for me and in very pleasant simple and quiet way.
Without them I probably wouldnt succeed summiting.
I really recommend them.
They work with this company that set up a very nice and well planned trip for me.

For those who is looking for short trek to Everest base camp, this trek is recommended. we have recently completed our Luxury Everest base camp trek and rode helicopter back to Lukla from Gorakshep which is perfect choice, we walk up to base camp like other trekkers do, but after EBC, rather than walk same way to Lukla, considering our timeframe too, we decided to take Helicopter ride and Pasang arranged customized 12 days trip cutting 4 days less from his regular 16 days Everest base camp. We also ended up trek with Luxury lodges such as Yeti mountain homes and some selected lodges after Namche, it was perfect package for comfortable accommodation seeking trekker like us where available. our Sherpa guide and porter did excellent job looking after us so well. when my wife caught by AMS at lobuche, they take very good care of our well-being, we took another rest day at Lobuche which is about 5000m altitude and we direct walk to Everest base camp next day.
arrangements of trip from arrival to departure, transport, quality of hotel in Kathmandu was best. Pasang picked us and welcomed us in Kathmandu Airport with Sherpa culture offering Khata (Buddhist welcome scarf), welcome dinner arranged at Nepalese restaurant was awesome, we enjoyed it on arrival day, free massage after trek was added value of this trip. we are looking forward to travel again with pasang and Team.
