Chhattra is the owner of the business and is a very professional man, who gives thorough details of what to expect while trekking in the Himalaya. He was able to answer all my questions, and responded to all inquiries promptly, which made planning for this trip very easy. He gives excellent recommendations in regard to purchasing gear prior to trekking, if thats what you need. He also leant me a down jacket, sleeping bag, trekking poles and duffle bag which was very kind and VERY helpful for the cold weather!
Our guide for the trek was Basu, and he was absolutely wonderful; very friendly, happy, kind, caring and very VERY knowledgeable about the mountains and surrounding Khumbu region. He is also a very patient and understanding man; I am not a fast walker, especially while hiking uphill at high altitude, and he happily stayed with me while the others in the group went on ahead. Unfortunately I got quite sick during the trek and wasnt able to complete the full itinerary. Basu was very understanding, and sent me off down the mountain to recover with one of our porters/assistant guide, Dilip, to make sure I was safe, and he adjusted my itinerary to maximise the time I had left while trekking to Mongla, where we met up for the remainder of the trek. He made sure that I was looked after well, and had everything that I needed to get better. Dilip was wonderful too; he is very kind and caring, and made sure that I had everything I needed and was happy after I had to spilt from the rest of the group due to feeling too unwell to continue with the heavier trekking. In another unfortunate turn of events, my bag accidentally got switched with someone elses when I split from the rest of the group, and I only realised once we arrived in Periche. I was happy to just wait until we met up with the rest of the group again, but Dilip went out of his way to go and switch my bag back at Thukla - a 2.5hr round trip, in the cold. Needless to say, I couldnt thank him enough. The kindness, understanding and patience I was shown by Basu and Dilip will never be forgotten.
The porters are very helpful, friendly and kind; we definitely wouldnt have been able to do the trek without them! The loads they carry are huge, and they do it with a smile on their faces... Im still in awe of the weight that they carry while still being able to run up and down the mountain! Incredible!
While the trek didnt pan out exactly as Id hoped, since I missed out on the Cho-La pass and Gokyo lakes due to becoming unwell, the team at Nepal Eco Adventure made sure that my trek was thoroughly enjoyable and memorable. I am immeasurably grateful to Chhattra, Basu and Dilip for making sure I was safe and happy during my two weeks in the Himalaya. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend them to anyone interested in booking a trek through Nepal, and will be asking for Basu as my guide when I come back to Nepal to trek the Annapurna Circuit!”

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
How much should my backpack weigh?
A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.
- Do I need a porter?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?
We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
