Smooth and memorable trip!
Even though I didn't make it to the Mera Peak summit successfully due to altitude sickness, the experience I had with this local travel specialist was great. Airport pick-up went smoothly and they even let me buy a few clothing... Read more
A Bookmundi Travel Expert Khum Subedi responded to this review:

It's unfortunate that altitude sickness prevented you from reaching the Mera Peak summit, but it's wonderful to hear that despite that, you had a great experience with the local travel specialist. The flexibility they showed regarding airport transfers and the assistance provided in Thamel are indeed commendable.

It's understandable that you would have preferred a guide with stronger English skills for more meaningful interactions. Clear communication and cultural exchange can enhance the overall trekking experience. Your feedback about pacing and time estimates is valuable and can contribute to the guide's growth and improvement in the future.

Overall, it sounds like you had a smooth and memorable trip, and I'm glad to hear that despite the challenges, you still appreciated the kindness and qualifications of your guide and porter. Thank you for sharing your experience!

CANCELLATION

Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable.

Other Practical InformationNOTE: 1. Urgent Notice for Domestic Flights (To/From Lukla) The Government of Nepal has announced the halt of all flight operations from Kathmandu to Lukla, tentatively. Flights to Lukla have now been re-directed to Manthali airport in the district of Ramechhap which is 132 Km east of Kathmandu until further notice, to avoid the heavy traffic congestion at Kathmandu airport. The airport in Ramechhap physically sits in the Tamakoshi River Valley and is located 132 km from Kathmandu (an approximately 3-4 hours drive). However, the early morning flight which departs at 6 am in the morning from Kathmandu will be available throughout this period, subject to early bookings at least 6 months to 1 year in advance prior to all Everest trips, which can be tedious in the peak season periods of spring and autumn. This too, is not guaranteed due to inclement weather patterns in these climatic changing times. All other flights after 6 am to Lukla will only be available from the airport in Ramechhap. Other than this, optionally, helicopter arrangements can be made for 5 people on a sharing basis with an addition of USD 500 for a one way flight per person with an exclusive choice [only yours] to change your airplane flights to the helicopter. We will try to coordinate ways to form groups at the airport for this arrangement, but again, this too cannot be guaranteed, especially in peak season periods. The drive to Ramechhap and flight to Lukla is almost always guaranteed unless the flight is canceled due to bad weather conditions. Travelers are requested to advise us on your preferred alternatives for flights to/from Lukla if/when possible delays or disruptions occur. We would truly appreciate your patience to bear with us in the mentioned circumstances above. Climate change and our, should we say, blessed geographical conditions; which can be a monster when least expected, has become the relevant cause for this, making us victims of unseen circumstances beyond our control. Thank you so much for your kind understanding.
