     In 2015, I was in Nepal for my vacation and my friends suggested me for trek. I was totally confused in choosing team for trekking. I visited many of the trekking agencies door to door for 2 days. But I was not satisfied because all agencies were only explaining about themselves. At last I got information about Nepal Trek Adventure from internet, I checked the site and there were all legal documents of the company. The day after I visited to Mr. Binod and I booked a trek with him due to his professional behavior and I got a chance to learn from them. My guide Shiva was so friendly and informative who answered all my questions. I did not felt bored even for a second because of his funniest nature. By going with their team, you will never feel regret. Highly recommended.

    King with words and nothing with action suits for many agencies I had seen. But Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition stands out of this list. Yes, I can say that because I have had a beautiful helicopter trek to Everest with them. The services and hospitality provided by them are remarkable and somehow divine. The highly managed schedules, prices, and obliging guides and porters further added spark in my trekking experience. Nepal trek Adventure and Expedition not only shows the thread but also shows by action. I was very happy uniting with this agency and still remember their sweet and praising words which beautify Nepal and its people more.

    We, I and Jordan were planning for a trek to Everest but we were not sure about the agency which we had to pick up. One very day, we went to one of our friend who already had gone for Everest region trekking and she recommended the name, Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition at once. We were amazed with the frequent reply of our friend so we immediately contacted the agency. We talked with the Managing Director, Binod Sapkota, who impressed us in such a way that we didn’t find any reasons to say no to him and this company. So, we finally landed in Kathmandu and after rest and further activities, we started our helicopter trek to Everest Base Camp. Till then we were unknown about our guide Krishna Sapkota. He was the person who was going with us to assist us in our trek. We took flight to Lukla and reaching there was followed by our walk. During the trek we asked many questions to them (Binod and Krishna) listening to which anyone would have become irritated but we were surprised seeing them. They answered all our questions fluently with patience. We got to know many things both known and unknown, about the region. The moment we all reached the base camp was the day I will never forget in my whole life. We all were looking at one another’s face and smiling with our twinkling eyes as our dream was fulfilled with best companions ever. Collaborating with Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition gave us a lifetime memorial experience. So, I highly recommend Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition to execute any trekking in Nepal. Don’t worry, you are in safe hand.

Best Seasons for Everest Base Camp Trek 5 Days

The best time to visit Everest Base Camp is the seasons like spring and autumn, which implies the months of September, October, November, March, April, and May. During these months, the weather and climate remain clear and overall outlook remains more visible and accurate. Gazing sunlight also does not harm the body much, as it remains at a moderate level (sometimes higher). There will be less fear of having high colder as the temperature remains adjustable in those months. Flora blossoming and fauna dancing will also add more spur in these periods of time.

Freedom of panorama

Everyone has the right to take photograph and photo of the things and place that they admire. But there also resides some places like temples, monuments, gompas, etc. where cameras (and taking photographs) are not allowed because of the country’s personal norms and values. So that should be respected. Most importantly, it is must ask the respective guide, porters, or locales in order to know about these restrictions and unavailability.

Clothes

It is important to be known about the clothes that should be carried during the trek aka helicopter tour. As this journey hails to the highest mountain in the world and its base camp, of course, there will be cool weather. So it is recommended to have warm, waterproof, windproof, and extra pairs of clothes, in order to prevent body fragileness. Helicopter tour does not need much more clothes as in trek. So you can minimize your clothing sense to the trekking part only.

Cash

It is always a must to carry extra bucks which can be used anytime anywhere. Also, ATM service is available in city areas but is rare in Himalayan areas, so typical currency is to be carried. Shopping, bar bills, extra accommodation facilities, and more can be put under control with the help of it.

Shopping and laundry

Laundry service is available in city areas but not in the mountain. So, it can be a problem for some. Dark clothes and sweat absorbents should be taken with self to prevent it to some extent. Shopping can be done any places whether it is the city like Kathmandu and also in Himalayan places like Lukla and Namche Bazaar. Most importantly, laundry and shopping should be done as a personal expense and the company’s cost includes do not embrace that in the list.

Altitude Sickness During 5 Days Trek To Everest Base Camp

Altitude sickness is of three types: acute (mild) altitude or mountain sickness (AMS), High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE), and High-altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE). All these are occurred because of the decrease in oxygen inhaling volume. Medicines like acetazolamide (Diamox and Diamox Sequels) and/or dexamethasone (AK-Dex and Ocu-Dex) are recommended to carry in order to reduce the impact of altitude sickness if occurs during the trek.

Humble Attitude

Humble attitude means learning about some gestures that can be used in order to have some impact during the trek and helicopter tour. Some words like ‘Namaste’, ‘hello’, ‘how are you – k cha halkhabar’, ‘’welcome - swagatam’, ‘thank you - dhanyabaad’, etc. are some humble gestures that can be learned and used.

Acrophobia

Some people may have a fear of height. So such situations should be mentioned previously during trip booking. Counseling and motivation will be provided in order to inspire you for conquering your fear.
