What an amazing experience ! I've been home for a couple of weeks now and am still brimming over with enthusiasm about the trek. Certainly not a walk in the park, but with the support of our incredible Exodus crew and encouragement from fellow trekkers was thrilled to make it to Base Camp ! What started for me as a "50th birthday bucket list trip", turned into a truly enriching , dare I say life changing experience. Exodus really knows what they are doing in Nepal - I always felt well cared for, informed and supported. I was also impressed by how well Exodus supports the local communities. You could sense the shared respect between our leader, Sidar, Sherpa’s, and lodge owners. My co- travelers were another reason this trek was so special. Maybe it was luck or perhaps our shared interest of Everest, but found traveling with this particular group really enhanced the experience. Just an amazing bunch !The highlight for me, was the two nights we spent right at base camp - quite a thrill to be amongst the expedition teams as they prepared to summit. My advice to potential travellers - go for it ! Prepare with as many practice walks as possible (including up and down hill), and invest in some good hiking boots and poles, but think one foot just starts to follow the other almost automatically as you anticipate what lays ahead. Can't wait to travel with Exodus again and as a travel agent will certainly be recommending them to clients.
