We did Everest base camp trek for 14 days after the two major earthquakes in Nepal. Before the trek, I was thinking about to cancel my trek like any other travelers, but the 50 % amount was already paid for our trek.
We also receive suggestions from the company where we booked our trek (Exciting Nepal Treks and Expedition). The owner of the company, Subash himself was always replying and very quickly responding to all our emails and concerns. He assured us that 100 % amount will be refunded, if incase we would have to cancel our trek due to the broken trails resulting from the major earthquake. Our ticket was already booked and confirmed for Nepal and we heard the media spreading the news that Everest trail and many other trekking trails were fully destroyed. But that was NOT TRUE at all. We decided ourselves to fly to Nepal and self check then decide for the trek during our stay in Kathmandu.
Taking the suggestions of the company, we started our trek at the beginning of June. Guide Basudev from Exciting Nepal treks was extremely helpful throughout the journey. We hardly met 25 trekkers in our whole 14 days trek.
The camp ‘Phiriche’ was affected and many tea houses were damaged. Even in Namche and Lukla, few tea houses were damaged in every camp. I met two trekkers on the way and they repeated to us that ( second time to the Everest Base camp ) they found all the trekking trails exactly the same as before and not even a single damaged was noted anywhere. We finished our trek successfully without any problem but many hoteliers and people from Khumbu were worried because the rest of the world was thinking that the trail of The Everest Base camp is destroyed. NOT TRUE. AS WE DID THE TREK BY OURSELF AND SAY IT IS SAFE AS BEFORE.
Thank you Subash and the team of Exciting Nepal for helping us make our dreams come true even in such a critical situation. We will be back gain and join your company for the next trek. See you soon.
