Everest base camp hike-12 days

First about myself. I am an Indian living in Los angeles for the last 10 years. 
I have been thinking of doing the base camp hike for a while now. After getting in touch with a few companies, I decided to go with Nepal Hiking Adventure Company. 
Bisnu, the company owner, was very responsive with his emails. I think we ended up exchanging close to 30 emails. Bisnu always responded within a day with detailed responses to all my queries.
My flights to Kathmandu got delayed due to bad weather and Bisnu was kind enough to adjust my dates for the trip. 
Ours was a group of 2 hikers. My fellow hiker was an American. Our guide was Rudra and we had one porter Dipak. Rudra is a very knowledgeable and patient man! How a company performs is generally understood by how that company handles exceptions. In my case, I got altitude sickness on day 3. Rudra took a decision to call it a day and we ended up staying for the night even though the plan was to walk further and stay at the next village. My fellow hiker proceeded with Dipak to the next village. This along with Diamox helped me get back on my feet the next day and I was able to complete the base camp along with hiking to Kala pattar. I am grateful to Rudra for not being very pushy and giving me the time to get normal.

I think the price is very fair and you end up staying in good hotels. I don’t remember any day where the food or the hotel was bad.

I would highly recommend this company and the team for any one who wants to do EBC and other hikes in the Himalayas.
