My husband, adult daughter and I trekked to Everest base camp in March of 2012. Shanker was our guide. He did an amazing job getting us there and back. He watched us constantly to making sure we did not have altitude sickness. He also helped me to continue on when I wanted to quit. He made sure we had the best tea houses available. Throughout our trek, he gave us advice that helped insure that we would have a positive experience. We highly recommend his services, and hope to get back to Nepal soon.
