Also each two trekker would have one Sherpa helper for carrying your trekking bags.

Acclimatization 
There is no way to prepare for altitude other than to spend time at altitude. Being in very good physical condition will help ameliorate some of the exhaustion that people often feel, but it will not prevent altitude caused medical problems such as Acute Mountain Sickness. This itinerary is designed with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) in mind and to ensure a comfortable and safe adventure trek in the Himalayas. Staying well hydrated and getting plenty of rest may help. 

The maximum elevation of this trek will be reached at Thorong la at altitude of 4130m above sea level. Obviously this altitude range is high, but as we would be e range of altitude, and we are hiking from the 820m to this altitude range with enough days of hiking en route, it is not considered a high risk zone for AMS.

 his first assignment was a group of two trekkers from Canada and Australia whom he took to EBC…that being his first trip, it required him to ask a lot of questions to other fellow guides…he learnt a lot.

his family is now in Kathmandu….he has two kinds..a 12 yo son and a 7 yo daughter…and his wife…..when he is not on trek , all he does is wait for the next group to arrive so that he can go to the mountains.

He believes that it is important to give tourists a unique taste of places they visit- be it local animals or flora and fauna, celebrations or culinary experiences. He tries his best to always give the tourists a close view of the life in the Himalayas beyond just the majestic mountains.

The organization behind the trek was excellent !

This was our 4th trek in Nepal and we decided for the first time to put our trust in a local company and we are very pleased to say we have not been disappointed, the organization behind the trek was excellent, the emails received where fast and formative and the information given was accurate and honest.

Once we started the trek we found it to be challenging but enjoyable, we where fortunate enough to have a very good local guide that was able to answer all of our questions and make the arrangements on a day to day basis whilst up in the mountains, he understood our requests and every over night stay he arranged for us was comfortable and an brilliant experience into the locals and the traditions and music of the locals.The accommodation we had was always comfortable and the food was very good.
The porter we had was also great, always happy and smiling and always made it to the next stop way ahead of us and made the room comfortable for our arrival.
We are very happy to recommend this company to anyone that is looking to book a trek in Nepal with a local company, their pricing is the best we could find their service more than matched the delivery of the much larger international companies.
