I completed the Everest base camp three passes trek in March-April. It was my third time trekking in Nepal solo, and first time with Caravan Outdoors. It has been a great experience. My guide Khem and porter Dhurba have been excellent companions during the trek.
Caravan has made things really easy from the very beginning, not only during the trek but also during my staying in Kathmandu. I am really grateful for this awesome experience. ~Andreu Balius (Spain)
