Everest Base Camp Trek

Me and some mates just completed a trek to EBC and back with Nepal Footprint.
The organization and professionalism of Nepal Footprint Holidays was amazing throughout the entire process. I cant commend them enough on how the entire process was handled.
We had Kumar as our guide and I couldn’t recommend him enough if you are after a knowledgeable and committed guide who wants the best for his trekkers, their health and experience.
Also, if you are thinking about trekking Nepal, don’t go with a large international company. Nepal Footprint will put together a package to suit your needs without the 20 person group that i could imagine would be frustrating. All at a reduced cost.
Thank you so much again to Bashu, Kumar and the team at Nepal Footprint.
