A well well spent day in Kathmandu. I had to take a break from my monotonous life and wanted to visit Nepal since long back. And this year I finally did it, bought a camera, two lenses and a go-pro for capturing awesome shots! I inquired to a few travel agencies in Nepal, and Third Rock got my vote! They called me, asked me what I wanted to ask and got my answers. Kathmandu is literally insane, with choas and corners brimming with temples and stupa. Got chance to stroll around famous UNESCO World Heritage sites, a lifetime opportunity-at least for me! I am back to my country with images and videos my friend cannot afford to have :D Thanks TRA for your awesome service
My wife wanted me to go to the Himalayas of NEPAL and I chose Gokyo Ri Trek. I did research for few days- though EBC Trek was most recommended, I insisted to go for this trek and guess what I enjoyed alot. Absolutely amazing trek. Crossed Renjola pass, watched the beauty of Gokyo valley and Gokyo lakes and most importantly enjoyed view of the world's highest peak. I did right choosing this trek. I think I will do it again, with my wife in 1 or 2 year.
To the Everest and Back!!!! An unforgettable walk past the stunning Gokyo Lakes and Renjo La. I crossed some high mountain passed and climbed Gokyo Ri just to enjoy the stunning views of Everest and surrounding peaks. For a moment, I felt like I am in heaven. This trek is superbly a must-do trek. 1 year ago, I did EBC Trek with Third Rock Adventures and their best service wanted me to this time again with them and this even got better. The trek is superb, the guide was experienced just as they told me while in an email. The views are more than I expected and living in the Himalayas for 14 days was no less challenging. The Gokyo Valley was the highlight of my trek, I wanted to spend a few more days there but my departure gate was guaranteed. But it was worth, I couldn't expect more. Beautiful memories for me to reminiscence for my lifetime.
My husband was on his vacation with his friends while my children were at their aunt's house. I had to do a short, in fact, a day trek and Langtang Heli Tour was on my bucket list. I did every planning in rush but it was worthy. It all went good, I completed by long-wished heli tour to Langtang Valley. Had to say this, if it was not Third Rock Adventures, I would not have done it, they were quick and assertive with every step. My heli ride date and departure were guaranteed and they were up with their words. I am back from my awesome heli tour. An incredible heli ride up above the Himalayas and Gosaikunda Lakes. My husband was shocked to see such cool pictures of the Himalayas and Tamang people I met there. He could only imagine how awesome my trip was. And now I am bragging about my creative and cool heli tour. Thanks to Third Rock Adventures for their service I could not anticipate from any other travel agency.
We initially booked an EBC trek but cancelled it when the weather turned foul and our flight got cancelled. Instead of waiting for the skies to clear up and losing a couple of days from our holiday, my wife and I thought it best to cancel our EBC Trek and do the Mardi Himal Trek instead. Naba suggested this trek and I am sure glad we did this. Being Botanists and keen birdwatchers this was the perfect for us. The trail meandered through a deep forest of rhododendron and oak. Our guide Shiva gave us space and time to take in the views, photos and patiently shared with us the local names of the birds and vegetation. And though it was cloudy on the first day, the skies luckily cleared up as we climbed higher. We both felt a bit queasy and had a mild headache while we were in Low Camp. This was due to the altitude. I felt okay after taking Diamox and a night’s rest. But since Sheryl was still not feeling okay we decided to spend an extra day at Low Camp. Shiva was a great help and took very good care of us. He made sure we had plenty of warm fluids to keep us hydrated. FYI dehydration is one of the major causes of altitude sickness, so one should drink plenty of fluids at higher altitude. As promised the views from High Camp were breathtaking. Words fail to do justice to the grandiosity of the views. One has to experience it. No regrets for taking this trek. This was hands down the best trekking adventure we have ever taken. Thanks to all the team at TRA for giving us a great holiday. We will travel with you again!
Hallo! Namaste! My trip was fanntastic. After planning for 2 years, I finally did this trek and it is one of the best travel adventures of my life. I set my foot on the base camp of Everest. Such an amazing feeling. I had the best pictures of Base Camp. The chains of mountains this trek offered are breathtaking. Imagine standing on top surrounded by mountains and serene Lake! The constant views of the Himalayas was something I loved about this trek. I just walked and enjoyed the trek, rest were done by guide and TRA Team in Kathmandu. Meal was good, people were warm and welcoming and the mountains were spectacular. I still miss my moment at Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp.
What an adventure! I climbed Lobuche Peak and I brag about this every time I get a chance among my friends. It was a tough decision for me to climb a peak- did lots of research and finally decided to do and here I am, on top of peak in the Himalayas of Nepal, I feel proud of it. Well, had it been some other company, I would not have done it for sure because Third Rock Adventures had first impression on me that they were reliable and had amazing mountaineering team. They nailed! When I inquired just a question, they were quick and friendly. I felt like talking with a friend. Mr. Naba called me and consulted me and that was super-amazing move. I asked about the mountaineering leader and was again impressed by his more than 25 years of experience. And this led to booking. I was escorted to my hotel, nice hotel and we had quick meeting. The TRA Team had nice office and Naba and I had coffee talk where I was briefed about my trip including his experience. He sound so confident and professional! When we had first Lukla flight I felt I was in the right hand. Trekked along the legendary trekking trail to EBC. I was mesmerized by it's beauty. This trek was more than I expected, it was power-packed with lots of attractions. We slept at hotel in Namche, Dingbocche, Tengboche and even hiked to Kala Patthar. I did not knew I would get all this in this trip. Interestingly, we had pre-climb training. My leader was superb with his job, taught me all the little things and moves when climbing the peak. At times, it was hard for me but my leader was always there for me. And he is a friend of mine now. a friend from Nepal.
