Everest Base camp and 3 passes

Something I thought I would never be able to do turned into the trip of a lifetime - one of the highlight events of my life.
No two days the same, stunning scenery wherever you looked and, if you don’t mind the odd 4am wake up call, the most beautiful awe inspiring views of sunrise over Everest/Lhotse/Ama Dablam - memories to last forever. Some days tougher than others but the effort was always rewarded.
Our guide Bharat (walking knowledge base) and porter Kishor (superman) were great. After 2 weeks trekking it was hard to say goodbye.
Nature Explore from booking to farewell dinner in Kathmandu provided a personal service that made you feel like a friend rather than a customer. Now looking to do Annapurna circuit with them.

3 passes and EBC

Amazing few weeks with nature explore! 360 mountain views everyday and first class service every day. Our guide Bharat was fantastic as was Dinesh during our Booking process. This
Is the second time I have used nature explore and already thinking about my third time !

Our porter Kishor Karki was fantastic. So glad to have spent our time with him - had great fun bouncing English/Nepalese off each other . We will miss him.

If anyone is thinking about 3 passes trek , cannot recommend nature explore more. Really tough, but fantastic! Arrive as a client , leave as a friend.
