Everest Base Camp Fixed Departure Trek Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 1 reviews

Nepal is an amazing country but a single thing can ruin it all. You have to be careful while doing or deciding everything. Choosing the best travel planners can matter a lot and don't do a mistake like I did last time which totally messed up my holidays.  If you want to have awesome time in Nepal, look no further. Sublime Trails did exactly what you said it does. All those days with walking long hours in a day went by easily without anyone getting sick, no one losing anything we also made some new friends. I don't know what else to say. Last time I was in Nepal, I was so upset that I didn't think I would ever return but with my daughter's insistence, I had to come. I'm very happy this time.
