“Everest Base Camp Trek ”
My friends and I had been dreaming about going to Everest Base camp for several years, and we finally did this April. We organised everything beforehand with Happyland Treks since we didn’t have much time to spend in Nepal. We got picked up at the airport and went to a really nice hotel before leaving for Lukla. The guide was really friendly and knowledgeable, able to adapt to our rhythm. Of course the landscape and trails were amazing, I recommend it to everyone. Thanks for everything, we’ll keep these memories forever.
“Everest Trip ”
The trekking was a great experience thanks to our guide who knew perfectly the region and the people. We had a very challenging weather (snow, rain huge) but it was more exciting. Our guide taking care of us all the time. very very big thanks to Happyland Treks.
“Great experience Everest Base Camp”
