I am Roman Marks (from USA) and I am close to be 70 years old! I signed up with Asian Journey for a trip of my life! I selected them using a web search. They had the most attractive offer for the money and were very accommodating in creating my schedule. In 23 days I crammed Everest Base Camp, Kala Patar, Island Peak (6,189 meters), white water Rafting and Chitwan National Park and I prayed to accomplish some and return home alive and unhurt. The trip and the company beat all my expectations!!!
First and foremost was my guide – Babu Gurung. He was smart, resoursfull, helpful, attentive and a real friend. Only because of him I was able to make all I dreamed for. When I had symptoms of altitude sickness, he helped me to cope with it, helped me with my loss of appetite, head aches, loss of sleep, he even had medicine for my stomach problems. He designed the training for HAS measured to my abilities and gave me plenty of rest and entertainment beating me in all the card games I tought him how to play. When I was coming back from summiting Island Peak (1200 m up and 1400 m down in 16 hours), he met me on the way back with 2 liters of hot chocolate. This touched me to tears. When my camera gave out, he gave me his camera to use. His care and attention can’t be measured in words!
In a competitive price from Asian Journeys I got a fantastic 23 days trip, with guide that became my friend, porter that carried my load, everything was taken care of food, transportation, lodging. All I had to do is move, enjoy the surroundings, and people I met on the trial and in the hotels.
I highly recommend Asian Journey for your future trip to Nepal. If you want any details, call 843-766-3274
