- EVEREST PANORAMA LODGE TREK AND CHITWAN TOUR AND NAGARKOT TOUR 21 DAYS, FROM 22 APRIL TO 20 MAY 2016
Hello again Stephan,
Some comments: In the spring of 2016 I traveled in Nepal through arrangements made by Swiss Family Treks and Expedition Nepal. A dedicated staff paid close attention to all details so that transportation, lodging and trekking and site seeing all ran very smoothly. My guides and guide assistants could not have been kinder or more careful through out visiting the Khumbu area (Everest Panorama Lodge Trek), on the Champa Devi day trek (for acclimatization) or on the Nagarkot trek. A safari tour in Chitwan (elephants and rhinoceroses for a start) was also included as were some initial acclimatization days (visiting cultural sites) in the Kathmandu and later in the Namche Bazaar areas. I thoroughly enjoyed my entire stay leaving with the sense that Nepal had offered a great deal culturally and religiously along with so many awesome mountains and natural beauty. It seems that one visit is only the start. Spring is perhaps less crowded though my visit was close to a year after the earthquake. Also spring weather can have both clear and hazy days. This seemed minor compared to the adventure of the trekking. I have confidence that the Swiss Family Treks and Expedition Nepal can work out a trip you will very much enjoy and recall with enthusiasm.
