We are group of 4 girls from Colorado and did trek to Everest base camp and island peak trip with Nepal trekking tourism in March 2019. we are completely satisfied for the personal service given by Pasang Sherpa and by his Sherpas in the mountain. our Sherpas were professional and met our goals, when we caught by minor altitude problem, they are always there to make sure we are fine and that was awesome service. besides that, two of us climbed island peak and all 4 of us did Everest base camp and Kalapatthar trek, we had such a nice view due to best weather when we got there. overall, it was great trip and had a great experience in Nepal with Nepal trekking tourism company. we highly recommend them to anyone wish to visit Nepal.
