EBC – I was a bit worried going to EBC for my very first long hike, but VonKathmandu took excellent care of me: we went shopping for outfits, got my shoes stitched in Namche, we found all the Cappuccinos along the trek, stopped to take photos of every Yak … while enjoying the breathtaking mountain scenery of Taboche, Amadablam, Lotse, Nuptse – and finally Everest, all along. The guide was very knowledgeable about all the view points and extra spots worth exploring along the trek, including a religious festival in Tengboche Monastery, or local chyang curtesy of his parents. A great trip organised by people who love the mountains and want to make sure you have an excellent experience. Langtang – at the end of the trekking season, my lady guide and me, we had the mountains for ourselves. Outside the busy season, we had the opportunity to sit with the locals around the wood fire ovens and to listen to their stories about bears raiding the village, the 2015 earthquake, how to ensure good education for the children, and more recent, about the impact of corona on tourism, Covid cases and vaccination campaigns. Apart from enjoying the forest and the mountains and the serenity and the silence before returning to a busy and noisy Kathmandu, an unexpectedly educational tour as well, with quick impromptu visits to the Chinese border and Nuwakot castle.
