Woohoooo- did my dream-trek to Everest. It was a fantastic experience. The heli flight to Lukla from Kathmandu and back to Kathmandu was the best part of this trek. My itinerary had a hike to Kala Patthar too. I thoroughly enjoyed my brief time in Kala Patthar. I was dancing amidst some of the highest mountains in the world. My dream to stand before Everest came true- thanks to Third Rock for this trip, everything was perfectly organized. I tasted mountain-meals, slept at the teahouse owned by local people, who were kind enough to make me smile every day. My guide was knowledgable and sometimes funny. Overall this trip was a life of a lifetime for me. I want to trek to Everest base camp again. I shall be back to Nepal in 2022.
