I undertook the Everest panorama trek, as a solo traveler I was a little apprehensive, but my guide Anil was more like a friend for the entire journey. The company looked after me so well and I had a wonderful experience. Thanks to Dipak and the team
Didn't have enough time hence this trip was not to EBC - half way to Tengboche. Please note that you need to be physical fit and with decent stamina in order to do any trek in Nepal and the walking sticks is very impt. (the agency will be able to provide you)Good Shoes and thick socks(to protect the nails) . Went during off peak season - there are pro and cons Pros: Dont need to fight for toilets / not crowded / peaceful. Cons: everything is closed / evening rains - during trek fortunately no rain. Overall Trekking Planner is good. Dipak was helpful. the Yogi Cum Guide(Anil) was great and the porter Pasang..he is amazing too. Yoga before Trek - it it rather refreshing, you get a good stretch before you start the day. Get fit before your trek.
Extremely grateful with Trekking Planner, Kudos to Dipak & his team especially to Mr Anil who was very patience and accommodating, he became more like a friend rather than a guide to us. Despite my conditions, Mr Anil was very encouraging and very professional. Truly enjoyed my trip with them, and hope we can do it again!
