My wife and I had an unbelievable experience trekking 12 days to Everest Base Camp (EBC) with Scenic Nepal Treks and Expedition! This company is truly the top professionals when looking for a company to book any trekking or sightseeing with in Nepal! Our guide Rajan was top notch and one of the most knowledgeable and professional guides on the planet with well over 100+ trips to EBC. From the beginning before we booked our trip with Scenic Nepal Treks, Dipendra was very responsive and professional in handling our booking. He was by far the most professional we have ever dealt with when booking any trip abroad and his English was absolutely perfect. His email replies were immediate, and he provided guidance and recommendations for every aspect of our trip by both email and phone. We had several special requests for the trip including setting up a surprise bday, and Dipendra took care of everything. The professional service and A+++ attitude began from Day 1, our guide Rajan was there at the airport to pick us up and greeted us with a sign when we landed (even though our flight was delayed 3 hours). We were transported to our hotel in Thamal and spent time going over our planned 12 day hike to EBC and gear list. Once we were on the trek to EBC, Rajan took care of us like no one else could. He adjusted trekking speed as needed and went out of his way to explain the Nepalese culture and the area. As I mentioned before, he has completed this trek well over 100+ times and is well known by all the Tea House's and other guides. Being this well known has its advantages, as you usually get the best rooms at Tea House's to enjoy the amazing views. We encountered a situation where it was the full moon festival (happens 1 time per year) at the Buddhist Monastery in Tengboche and all tea house rooms were being shared. Rajan took care of our bookings and we were given a private room with the best view of Mt Everest! Another example why it pays to book with the best! After the hike we celebrated with our staff and had a great experience. I wanted to add that Scenic Nepal Treks is not just for trekking, we booked a tour of the historic sites around Kathmandu and that was a highly recommended experience. Rajan & Dipendra personally handled every aspect of the trip and even accompanied us to the airport for our return flight to make sure we were taken care of 100% and see us off! Our trip to EBC was one the best experiences of our lives! I attribute that to the hard work, knowledge, and experience of our guide Rajan & Dipendra! Looking forward to coming back to Nepal for the Annapurna Circuit next year! Thanks again Scenic Nepal Treks for making our experience so great and gaining lifelong friends!
