My most recent trip in November 2014 was to summit KyajoRi in the Everest region and it was undoubtedly the best trip yet.
For years I have returned every 6 months to Nepal to trek and summit mountains with Advanced Adventures. My most recent trip in November 2014 was to summit KyajoRi in the Everest region and it was undoubtedly the best trip yet. Chet and his team always go out of their way to make everything perfect. What I love about Advanced Adventures is that they cater for me as a single traveller and I feel that I have many friends who are genuinely pleased to see me every time I visit! The flexible itinerary allows me to make decisions about my trip and change the agenda if I feel like it, with either an additional rest day or a slight change in the hiking destinations to go with how I feel.
On this trip I had 4 nights (expedition style) in tented camp in order to summit KyajoRi. I was looked after by 5 porters and had my trusted climbing guide PemaChosang to guide my technical climb. We had amazing food, and many laughs, and I achieved my 3rd Himalayan summit and improved my Nepali language all at the same time!
Either side of my climb, my trekking guide Jivan kept me entertained and has become a trusted good friend. When you travel on your own, it’s important to have a guide who you trust, but who also spends time to talk to you about your surroundings so that you don’t feel alone on your trip. Advanced Adventures never fails to deliver. So thank you to Chet and his team for delivering another great holiday and helping me to achieve my dreams! I’ve just booked my flights for April 2015 to climb Lobuche, so see you all then! Thank you millions for an amazing trip.
