I recently did the Upper Mustang Trek with a group of friends. This was such a great adventure I feel the urge to write a good review for other adventurous people to benefit from
When you spend your hard-earned money, you want value for it, and My Everest Trip (MET) lived up to all my expectations and beyond. MET was recommended to me by my family. My first contact with the company occurred several months before our planned trip. If you are inexperienced in trekking, you have so many questions about equipment, guides, porters, how challenging the trek is, etc. Corresponding with Puru made me relax more and more as he responded very quickly to all my emails. I soon realized I had nothing to worry about. He only works with certified guides, and everybody who works for him is ensured. He also gave good advice on equipment, what you should bring from home and what you can buy cheaper in Nepal. His directions about how to get smoothly through all the airport procedures also came in handy.
Upon arrival In Kathmandu, Puru picked us up at the airport and took us to our hotel in Thamel. The next day we met Hari, our guide, and we had all the final details about the trek and how to pack our backpack and day pack.
Upper Mustang was great. MET are so well organized. Hari and the friendly porters were great company, Hari in particular always making sure we were OK and sharing his broad knowledge about the region. The porters, though carrying heavy weight, were always friendly and smiling. When you do strenuous walking, it’s nice to be surrounded by good people to support and cheer you up, knowing that every night you have suitable accommodation and good healthy food that gives you the strength to carry on.
The Upper Mustang Trek is loaded with cultural treasures and the indescribable beauty of nature; having an experienced guide is essential, especially when he, like Hari, shares all his knowledge willingly and with great pleasure and pride.
I understand why MET has such loyal clients. They are true to Nepalese tradition and have a great network of skilled people, but they (very importantly) understand that their clients come from all parts of the world with different backgrounds and expectations. All the team members are humble and polite yet proud of what they do. Trekking runs in their blood, and this is precisely what you need to be a guest here.
From the bottom of my heart, Thank you, Puru and MET; my friends and I will treasure this trek for the rest of our lives.
And I give My Everest Trip the highest recommendation possible…. Namaste
