“We did the 18 day EBC + Island Peak climb with Nepal Guide Treks, Sonam as our guide, and it was amazing! Our previous mountain history was just a couple fourteeners in Colorado, so this was a big step up, but we felt very prepared and taken care of. Prakash is great about quickly returning emails/answering questions (which trust me, we had plenty of!) We had exercised A LOT prior to the trip, so early on I think we were easy clients for Sonam. But when it came to the actual Island Peak climbing day we needed help with some of the actual mountaineering stuff, and he was awesome! And even earlier on in the trip, he was great about giving us lots of cool info along the trek, pointing out and naming mountains, etc.
This trip was beyond amazing, and Nepal Guide Treks took care of everything so it all went seamless and smooth. If you’re thinking about this trip; to just do EBC, just be in good shape to truly enjoy it. If you want to climb Island Peak and haven’t done and prior technical mountains (or maybe just some in Colorado or something like us), either try to get SOME mountaineering experience with ropes/down climbing before you go out, or just be prepared to learn out there but know you may have a few hiccups that your guide will be helping you through too! Anyways.. highly recommend this trip with this group!!”
