I just got back from an Everest Base Camp trek organized by VonKathmandu, and it was one of the highlights of my life! While the landscape and Sherpa culture alone are enough to leave one in awe, solid planning and logistics support on behalf of VonKathmandu staff enabled me to enjoy the trek without worrying about details. I simply grabbed my kit every morning and admired the dramatic landscape before me during the strenuous trek. I especially appreciated my pre-trek briefing with VonKathmandu staff who spared more than an hour out of their busy schedules to go over the 12-day itinerary and answer any questions I had. I was also impressed with the responsiveness of the staff when I had questions or concerns. The Khumbu valley is a remote area with unpredictable internet connectivity, but whenever I checked my phone in the off chance I could connect to WiFi, I always found messages from VonKathmandu staff asking how I was, for pictures of the trek and to offer words of encouragement. Can it get better than that?! Finally, VonKathmandu staff understand the added headache of getting from Kathmandu to Ramechhap in order to fly to Lukla. While they secured my flights from Ramechhap – Lukla – Ramechhap, they also shopped around for helicopter flights from Kathmandu directly to Lukla and found an excellent deal that only added a small amount to my reasonably priced trek fee. Thanks again you guys and great job!
