Amazing experience, well planned and well executed
Our 14 days trip to Everest Basecamp and Kala Pattar with Extollo was one of the most memorable trips for me for two reasons – Well planned and executed itinerary and of course mesmerizing scenery of Himalayas. We did this hike in late March and early April to avoid all the crowds. There is nothing like the Himalayas in the world. I had been dreaming about going to Everest Base Camp for a while and was researching companies which experienced in organizing such trips, have well thought out itinerary with the right amount of rest days and not too expensive. Extollo checked all those boxes for me plus much more. Before the hike, they provided a comprehensive list of items to carry, held a conference call to answer all the questions and provided assistance with ticketing options, etc. The hotel in Kathmandu was very nice 3 1/2 star but looked like 4 stars. They provided duffle bags for the hike and helped us with balancing the weight. During the Hike, all accommodations were well organized and ready for us to rest as soon we reached the tea-houses. We were welcomed with Ginger Lemon tea/black tea at every rest stop. Food was simple and delicious. The team lead took great care of hikers each day and accommodated their individual needs without an impact on a group. I personally did all the offered hikes plus few more that were optional. Extollo provided a separate guide for me to accomplish my goals during the hike. Overall, Dr. Hema Patel, the Extollo crew including Naba, Rishiji, Nabin, Dava, Dil, Deepak and rest of the porters made my hike one of the most memorable hikes. I would highly recommend Extollo for all Himalayan travel.
