Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar

I just wanted to drop you folks a note and let you know that I had a wonderful time one the Everest trek in Nepal. World Expeditions did an awsome job from start to finish. The level of professionalism and care that was given each and everyone of us was just beyond words. I would also like to mention our group leader Bir Singh. He is an increadible leader in every aspect. From diplomat to medical expert you have an asset that really goes beyond the call. If you have any type of employee of the month or year he gets my vote for sure!
