Amazing guide and great experience!

We did Everest Base Camp in November 2021 with Fanindra, the guide of Ace Hiking. He took great care of us, we felt secure and in the hands of a nice guy. He checked regularly that we did not had the altitude sickness and offered us some food that is best to prevent altitude sickness. On top of that, he is funny and friendly. The lodge that he choose for us were all nice and well kept.
We reached our goal thanks to him. He has a very good knowledge of the area and of the mountains in general.
Last but not least, his price is totally fine consider the quality of the trek / lodges / follow-up done by Fanindra.

The trek to Everest Base Camp

We have a great guide , Rai who set up this company Ace Hiking. We do not have any language barrier as he is very fluent in English then i will say fit enough for the hike with good recommended porter from his side. I have a problem above 5000m, but he will sure take care of you even you got any trouble. The hike is worth it with a good guide and good porter.
