We have just returned from our trek to Everest base camp with Puspa Jung Kunwar from Royal Mountain Travel. We loved our trek and feel a full sense of achievement having completed a goal we had set ourselves, this would not have been possible if not for our guide Puspa.
From start to finish he was brilliant, he met us only a day after booking our trip and explained in full and answered all our questions and concerns for the following day, he picked us up from our hotel and helped us with every step. He was our alarm clock each morning, offered tiger balm when we had headaches, even carried our bags and waited with us when we had to wait for our helicopter (due to bad weather our flight was cancelled) Even after that he arranged and chased up to ensure we had arrived ok, our transport back to our hotel at the Kathmandu end – even tho we have left him to walk back from Lukla.
Puspa was always eager to help more, during the day he was always pointing out mountains, explaining the traditions and telling us of the local villages – he even took some amazing photos of us to show all of our friends and family back home and help capture our memories.
Puspa is a credit to Royal Mountain Travel who also from start to finish put our concerns to rest with the prompt and professional manner.
We will most definitely be recommending to all.
Thanks again for an amazing and memorable adventure!
