Where do I even start? I’m an amateur when it comes to mountains or any kind of physical activity but it has always been my dream to go to Everest Base Camp. For me, it’s the ultimate dream since I don’t think I’ll ever reach the summit. I’ve been planning to do it for 5 years but I have always been terrified to go through with. But when I emailed Friends Adventure Team, Rajendra answered me so respectfully that I immediately felt as ease and I decided to finally go through with it this year. I got the FULL PRINCESS TREATMENT as soon as I landed in Kathmandu and all throughout my journey in Nepal.
Rajendra picked me up from the airport and then drove me back the next day for my flight to Lukla. When I arrived in Lukla, I was received by Onchhu and Ram, my guide and porter. But more than that, they were my caretakers, my best friends, and my saviors, too. These two made sure I was comfortable, warm, well-fed, well-rested, and well-hydrated the whole trek! They never left my side and made me feel really safe. They also never let me give up. When I started having major headaches, stomach aches, and lost appetite, they made sure I stayed alive and well. They literally gave me the clothes off their backs because I wasn’t dressed warm enough. The trek was difficult but we had a lot of laugh-out-loud fun. I never would’ve made it all the way to Base Camp and Kala Patthar if it weren’t for them. I would never ever forget my time in the Himalayas because of these guys.
Even after my trek, they still looked after me. I always felt like I had a family in Nepal that I could call anytime in case I get in trouble. I never felt alone. These guys made my dream come true and more. I love them!
