Most rewarding thing I’ve ever done & No.1 Everest Base Camp Trek Operator

Alejandro
15 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking, that I undertook with my friends was without doubt a most amazing adventure. We were 8 in the group, there was a 100% success. From the airport pick up to departure, Aspiration Adventure gave us the best experience and look after our every needs we had. Our guide Mingmar and Niraj was amazing, they shared all of their knowledge with us along the way and make sure that, we were always comfortable at all times. We met the porters and they were just as amazing throughout the trip. They just smile and speak a few words. Without any doubts, Me and my team can confidently say guidance and their ability to make our us adjust in the environment is the main reason to Everest Base Camp Trek successfully. throughout the trip, Anjan was in regular communication with us and guide. Overall it was a great trip and I highly recommend Aspiration Adventure, Most dedicated company and people. Hats off to these people and Thank you for mkaing us conquer one of the most iconic and beautiful treks in the world.
