“My fiance and I recently returned from a winter trek to EBC over 12 days with Green Valley and could not be more pleased with the entire trip! From start to finish, Raj coordinated every last detail, including some slight itinerary rearrangements at my personal request, as well as private cars to and from the airport, duffel bags for our gear, tablets for water purification, and setting us up with the best guide, Gopal!
We were met at the Lukla airport at the start of the EBC trekking route by Gopal, who made sure to take good care of us during the entire trek. Not once did either of us feel out of place and Gopal was always making sure we were comfortable. On colder evenings, he would always ask us if we needed extra blankets. His friendly and respectful demeanor was contagious and everyone we met along the way said he was the best guide they had encountered as well. Gopal was also clearly one of the more experienced guides, having been to many of the high passes/peaks countless times. When another, less-experienced group's guide was fumbling with an altitude-sick client, Gopal stepped in to help with administering oxygen, checking his blood saturation, and making sure he was okay throughout the night, until a helicopter could arrive in the morning. He was consistently helpful by dealing with the permits on the trail, the hotel reservations, and our sluggish pace on steep uphills at altitude. Of all the other trekkers we conversed with, none seemed to enjoy their guide's company as much as we enjoyed Gopal's. In turn, no one seemed to enjoy their trek as much as we did with Gopal.”
