We were so lucky to make this trip before the terrible Covid-19 pandemic made travel impossible. We were deliberating to take this trip during March-April when it would turn a bit warmer, but then Alice (my partner) could only schedule her holiday during Jan last. We thank our lucky stars now, that we had a change of plans. We would have been stuck somewhere if we had postponed our trip.
Well, overall we had a great trip. During the short 12 days of our holiday we made some really good memories that will last forever. The Annapurna trek to Poon Hill, the medieval temples and palaces in Kathmandu, the monasteries and pristine nature in Bhutan – all these were a treat to our senses. The guides were humble and knowledgeable. In fact everybody we met during our trip seemed so kind and helpful. We highly recommend This company and plan to travel with them in the near future.
The professional team of Third Rock Adventures made our trek a delight! Our guide Babu is such a kind, knowledgeable, cheerful, concerned and conscientious man that I can not recommend his company, Third Rock Adventures highly enough. We were old aged traveler with the slow pace in a group of 4 and Mingma was encouraging, careful and happy every step of the way and everything was thoughtfully planned out and executed. He knows so many people at every place we stopped that we felt extra-welcomed. Finally, our other porters were amazingly strong and always had a smile on their face. Babu showered us with snacks, water and concern every step of the way. I would love to go back and do a longer trek and if I am lucky enough to do so, I will undoubtedly be booking with Third Rock Adventures. Thank you everyone involved for this trip. Namaste.
I am Werner Berger and my "claim to fame" is probably best defined as being in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest person in the world to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest.
Little did I know my life was to change forever on my first trek into the Himalaya in 1992 at age 55. It was the beginning and just a matter time before I realized I could combine my leadership and climbing skills to create a program in which people could explore their own possibilities.
So, in 2010, I began leading Transformational Life Experiences, treks to Mt. Everest Base Camp and other high places.
One of the earliest keys to success is to find a company with the right mix of professionalism, support, and, of course, experience. I have used Naba Amgai and his teams on all my Nepal trekking adventures.
Naba's caring and climber support, is second to none. In my estimation, Third Rock Adventures is one of the very best in the business, in or outside of Nepal. They know the mountains. So you can relax, enjoy and transform.
