    Fantastic Everest Namche and Tengboche monastery

    My spouse and I went on an Tengboche Everest View trek with Aspiration Adventure, Walking was difficult, but it's heavenly. To be honest, our plan was just touring around the city but decide trekking to everest without reaching base camp (we were not prepared for trekking to base camp), Anjan was fast response and organize the things at the last moment. We were amazed with his communication skills and making things possible. I felt like I was in a dream, but it all came true thanks to my guides Santosh and Poter Dawa. They are extremely helpful and professional. We want to thank them and crew member for supporting us. I would not travel with anyone else when I returned to base camp.
