Trip of a lifetime - Everest Base Camp and Gokyo 19 days

Special gratitude goes to our amazing guide Myngmar Sherpa, who was an amazing knowledgeable guide and looked after us throughout the whole trip to EBC.

He made sure everybody was ok, enjoying the trip and his incredibly positive personality made every step easier :) He taught us a lot about the culture, traditions, mountains and always pointed out interesting facts and details during the trek.

After reaching the EBC two of us separated from the group and went through Chola Pass and Gokyo, which were unbelievable beautiful and our highlights of the trip.

Turquoise blue sacred lakes hidden in the mountains.

During those few days we were looked after by Kubir Magar! He was truly amazing, honest and kindest person with great knowledge of the mountains .

He was helping us with everything, looking after us, motivating us during tough times and became our friend.

We couldn’t wish for better guides.

The trek itself was occasionally challenging, but nothing that an average hiker with love for mountains would not succeed :) The company and guides made sure we had enough acclimatization days included in our trip and therefore everybody made it safe to the top! Accommodation (really amazing one in Gokyo) was provided every night, together with tasty breakfast every morning:) We truly cannot speak highly enough about the the trip, the beauty of the mountains and the kindness of the people we met! Our dream came true and we are really thankful to HSJ, Myngmar and Kubir that they helped us to make it real! Hope to return back soon! :);

We had some trouble with our flight to Kathmandu and the company was flexibel and gave the best to enable us every item on the programme.

The tour was well organized and the teahouse stops divided the trek in a perfect amount of KMs per day.

BISHNU was a great guide with professional expertise αs a local and his company was pleasant as he answered every questions we had and was always there while he gave us space to explore and to let all the impressions in you can not describe in words.

We are very thankful, that we had DILIP as a driver.

He helped us a lot, when we started and finished our journey and when we did an extra tour to Pokhara.

A very good person.

We were lucky to have DIPENDRA as a guide for sightseeing in Kathmandu.

He has a talent for summarizing the most interesting facts about every sight in a very charming way.

One of us decided spontaneously to extend the trek and summit the >6000m Island Peak.

Himalayan Social Journey arranged everything and set one of the most experienced climbing guides NIMA for this region on our side who made it possible to reach the summit as one of the first this year.

Thank you for this wonderful journey and see you soon! Madie and Gerrit;
