Amazing service by Himalayan Trekkers. This package enabled me and my team to trek the Everest region of Nepal at a minimum budget. This trip had given me a chance for independence. The team provided by Himalayan trekkers was amazing and very helpful during the whole process of climbing.

I would recommend you to go for this package if your budget is tight or want to explore the Everest region in just a week or so. I got to explore most of the places myself while the team of Himalayan trekkers helped me throughout my scaling journey. All the crew members were very entertaining and motivating.
