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!

I was really lucky to choose Friends Adventure as my EBC trek provider. The guys are not only very competent and knowledgeable, but also very caring. Friends Adventure is the right name. They create a very friendly atmosphere and treat their clients like friends - with meetings and seeing offs at the airport, friendly dinners and lending some heavy stuff like a sleeping bag, duffle bag and walking sticks. This friendly treatment was extremely valuable for me as I was a solo traveller and did not know a single person in Nepal. Besides that the guide provided by Friends Adventure was extremely competent and flexible. We made adjustments to the itinerary a couple of time to adjust the trek and the walking load to my condition and the level of acclimatization. I would definitely recommend this company to other travelers and will work with them myself if I take another trek in Nepal

My wife and I hired Friends Adventure Team to guide us on our 9 day Trek to Annapurna Base Camp, with a few extra days in Kathmandu and Pokhara. From the second we landed until the day we left Nepal, Friends Adventure Team took every step to make sure we were comfortable, happy, and having fun. They basically took care of everything- transportation, accommodations, meals, and much more!

Thank you to Rajendra for ensuring our vacation ran smoothly, for taking us out to dinners, and for offering us a day guide in Kathmandu at no extra charge. BIG THANK YOU to our fabulous guide Raju and our fearless porter Karma. I learned so much from Raju about Nepal and the Himalayas during our trek and he went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed every second, which we did. Karma also went out of his way, always ensuring we had hot food and tea and even brought dinner to my wife in her room when she was too tired! My wife and I truly enjoyed Raju and Karma's company and we will never forget watching the sunrise over Annapurna I, drinking Rakhsi on our final night, the numerous thoughtful conversations, and many, many laughs with them! Our trip would not have been the same without Raju and Karma and I look forward to another trek with them in the future!!
