    Incredible Value to Everest Base Camp With Incredible People

    We group of 6 people have just returned from amazing trek to Short Everest Base Camp Trek. 10 Days trek to Everest Base Camp with hiking to Kala Patthar and EBC. I originally made contact with Anjan, company owner of Aspiration Adventure in September 2019. Always polite, professional and extremely helpful. Guide and Porter was the best of all, sharing the insightful knowledge. Hospitable really went above and beyond to make our journey memorable. Lodges they booked were the best you could probably get and for a really affordable price! I highly recommend going guide Kalyan and Pemba our porter. I do not think anyone does it better than them!! Anjan and his company are very receptive, totally organized and will take care of every aspect of your journey. Lastly, he came to pick me up at the hotel to bring me to the airport for my flight back to home.
