I just wanted to extend my thanks to World Expeditions for arranging an absolutely amazing trip to Nepal. This is the first organised trek I have participated in (I normally go with friends or alone) and I was not disappointed. Everything went like clockwork and it did not have that "packaged tour" feeling that I was dreading. The other trekkers were great, all interesting like minded people. The guides were fantastic, lead by Prasant Basnet who really knew his stuff and was very easy to get along with. It was an awesome experience that I am recommending to everyone.
