Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
