    Mount Everest View – Budget Trek Kathmandu Namche

    At first, it was very difficult for me to choose a trekking agency in nepal, there are a lot of companies each of them boasting themselves as the best. Among them, I shortlisted and communicated to few companies. While doing so, the response that I got from the Aspiration Adventure was details and get the best price with all inclusive. Extremely well organised trip, suitable for a wide range of experience and age groups. Highly recommended. Guide was very helpful, and he knew a lot about the place. He took me to the Everest View Hotel then, to Khumjuing at Namche. Not only I have gained beautiful memories, but also I have a build a friendship with the people who made this trip possible. Definitely say yes to these 5 days trip. Thank you, Anjan for the complementary farewell dinner at the end. Also, many many thanks to Aspiration Adventure. You all had been amazingly helpful.
