Namaste. Truly grateful for the trekking experience with Mountain World Treks @ SaliTrekking. We went to ABC with Mountain World Treks @ SaliTrekking in 2018 and this year, Oct 2022, we returned to treks EBC via Gokyo with Mountain World Treks @ SaliTrekking again!

Thanks to our great guide, Suresh. Without his support, we probably not able to complete the EBC treks. He is knowledgeable, super hardworking, extremely patient, friendly, and incredibly funny. He took good photos too! Thank you again Suresh for pushing us through and keeping the vibes and excitement high.

Lastly, our grateful appreciation to Saligram for doing the nearly impossible task of securing our spot and getting us to the Surke by helicopter ride when there were no flights to Lukla and the helicopter ride was in high demand. Also, Saligram ensured our friend, who had AMS, safely evacuated to Kathmandu by helicopter, and helped to manage all the insurance process and claims. Everything has been taken care of smoothly. Definitely recommend their service and will always choose Mountain World Treks @ SaliTrekking whenever trekking in Nepal.
