Two amazing treks
We trekked twice with Raj at responsible adventures. The first time to Annapurna base camp and the whole trek was made special by him and his team. His English is fluent and we soon were chatting as friends,nothing was too much trouble . The preparation for the trip was well handled and it was reassuring that Raj was very responsible around safety and matters to do with altitude. He clearly looked after his staff , which again made the whole trip relaxed. En route Raj and his team would cook special meals. They always seemed to judge the timing of this to perfection , when we were tiring and needing a lift. Each morning was started with a cup of real coffee. Little luxuries like this do make the whole experience that little bit more special.
When we returned to Nepal , to trek to Everest Base Camp there was no hesitation in choosing Responsible adventures. This trip was equally as good as the first and again Raj displayed the same professionalism. We actually trekked during the monsoon period when the tea houses and the paths are much quieter. Views of Everest were still stunning. However, at the end of the trip we became stuck at Lukla due to fog . Raj again stepped in and ensured that we got back to Kathmandu safely and as quickly as possible.
You do pay a little more than you would with other trekking companies but the quality of the whole experience was worth every penny!
