by Frank Hoffman on Alpine Adventure Gorkha Treks

I thought everybody has a dream destination of the Everest region trek. That’s why I chose the Everest panorama trek. It will finish within a short duration of time, and I do not have sufficient time to trek in Everest base camp trek. So I choose Everest panorama trek.
The team of Adventure Alpine Gorkha was awe-inspiring. They will provide friendly service from the pickup, hotel transfer, trekking, and departure service amazing fully take care of us.
Along the way of our trekking, we had a great experience of Sherpa culture and ancient monastery as well as a stunning view of Mount Everest and many more snow-capped mountains. Our guide Bikash was very experienced and knowledgeable of the Himalayan region trekking in Nepal. Our guide and porter were hilarious and smiling, so we don’t know how fast we had to spend our short duration of time trekking in Nepal.
Without hesitation, I had like to recommend this team and trekking company in Nepal.
