I trekked to Gokyo and EBC with a bunch of friends in late October 2019, and I must say we had an amazing time. This is not an easy trek and at some difficult sections we really struggled, but the views were worth it. At every turn we were presented with jaw dropping views of mountains, glaciers and the lakes. We were totally smitten! Thanks to Shiva our guide and porters, Raju and Kancha. Your encouragement and good humour really helped us get through those challenging portions. For those who are up for a challenging hike in an extreme landscape, this is a must-do. Just make sure not to let that altitude get to you! And by the way don’t forget to book with Third Rock Adventures because they have the best contacts and guides who really know their job. While trekking we came across this couple from New Zealand who was having trouble with their guide. They had fallen for that ‘low budget trek’ trap. The agency they booked the trek with had given them a guide with zero knowledge and communication skills. He knew only some basic English words and was more inclined to play games in his mobile than to look after his clients’ well-being. After listening to their list of woes we sure were glad that we booked with Third Rock Adventures. Paying a little extra does make a huge difference in the kind of service you receive. Very satisfied with TRA’s service. Will certainly use their services again.
