Honestly, i had a very good experience.

Santosh runs this company, and he is a genuine guy.

He came to pick me from airport(with warm welcome), and hotel he provided in Kathmandu was perfect.

At night we discussed in detail about trek ahead, and it went well.

Santosh was in contact with guide and myself while we were on trek, and he would make sure everything is ok.

My guide Yogesh was a very nice young guy, and we really had good time together.

Food, Hotels, Guide, all arrangements were good and am very happy with that.

Unfortunately, i couldn’t summit island peak because a new crevasse developed just a day ago and ladders were not fixed yet by mountaineering association, so i would recommend to do island peak summit in season.

I highly recommend this company and guide yogesh.

Santosh runs a great company, which ensures we are ready and prepared before we even fly to Nepal.

He advises on the best equipment and itinerary to get before the trek.

Santosh also has some of his supplies, just incase you forget yours - which helped as i did miss a few things! The guides and porters on the trip are very knowledgeable and give a lot of interesting information about the mountain ranges.

Along with that, the groups tend to be smaller than the larger companies, which makes things much easier for travellers.

We are able to stay at better locations and inns with better facilities! There is also a lot of flexibility on the plan for the trip once you start.

I felt like the pace was perhaps too slow so we were able to move a lot quicker than most groups - which was really nice to see! Unlike other groups, who suffered from altitude sickness alot, we were fine on the mountains because we got a lot of rest and acclimatised nicely to the surroundings.

Overall, i would love to go again to another trek and would definitely recommend Mountain Ascend & Santosh to all interested travellers! Go with them over a larger company and you will not regret it!; ....less
