In April we spent a fantastic 2 weeks in Nepal on the Ace The Himalayas 14 day Everest Base Camp Trek. Having booked the trip over 2 years ago, which was disrupted by covid. Ace have been fantastic with the booking and communication and helping to move the dates due to covid 19 - Sujan in the Ace office was always on hand to answer any questions we had. Sujan organised all the paperwork for trekking and made sure that we had no issues whatsoever at the airport.
When we arrived in Kathmandu we met with our guide Dipesh, who was professional, friendly and lots of fun throughout the trip. He was great at tailoring the trip whenever we wanted to make a change. He listened to our needs and adjusted the plans with ease and without stress.
We had 2 porters on our trip, Don and Dilip, both which worked really hard carrying all our bags up and down the mountain. Dilip in particular was outstanding and couldn’t do enough to help us, he went above and beyond his role as a role as a porter. I would highly recommend requesting Dilip for your trip to the Himalayas. He would make a fantastic guide in the coming years.
The accommodation was reasonable in the mountains (as good as there was up there). Don’t expect luxury as you go to the top - the toilets and showers are poor over 4500m (but this has to be expected).
Overall, it was an absolutely fantastic trip and highly recommend going with Ace.
