“I travelled to Nepal in November to trek from Lukla to Namche Bazaar. Kadar met us at the airport in Kathmandu with a friendly smile and a very customer oriented attitude; he was prepared to make sure we had the best trip possible, and we did! Kadar arranged everything from our hotel reservation (at a great rate!) to dinner in a neat local restaurant when weather prevented us from flying to Lukla on the planned day. He made sure he thoroughly prepared us for the trek; he got us poles and even took pictures of us so we could get our passes for the mountain. We had a great time with Kadar; he even took us on an impromptu walking tour of Kathmandu and pointed out some great shopping opportunities.
Unfortunately, I got sick and could barely walk from Lukla to Namche Bazaar. Kadar had provided us with a guide named Deepak who was very attentive and who made sure I was well taken care of on the way. He practically dragged me to the guesthouse and made sure I had food and water, he even got me some of the best garlic soup ever to help renew my strength. The rest of the group went on and I stayed behind to sleep but Deepak checked in on me via cell phone several times and even called the guesthouse to have them bring me some food.
Our trip back to Lukla and Kathmandu was great. Kadar also arranged a tour guide and driver for us to take us to see Kathmandu the next day. We saw the main temples with a guide who was very knowledgeable and personable. We had dinner with Kadar and Deepak on our last night in Kathmandu and discussed our next trip. Next time I will make it to Namche Bazaar.
If you want to make a trek in Nepal, I highly recommend you use Actual Adventure. Kadar is dependable and organized. Deepak, our guide is knowledgeable about the mountains and a very experienced guide. Overall, you will find yourself in very capable hands. He is a very nice person as well. I look forward to our next meeting.”
