My brother and I stayed at Thamel Hostel in March 2020 for the second time in two years. Again we booked our trek and climb through Himalayan Partners and as always Ghan welcomed us as family and was superb in arranging everything for us - route, guides, porters, climbing Sherpas, permits, flights, gear, etc. - and all at a great price. We ended up trekking to Gokyo and climbing Gokyo Ri, we then headed up to Everest Base Camp, followed by a climb of Kalar Pattar. Finally we climbed the 6119m pe... See more ak of Lobuche East. We were successful in every goal of the trip as it was extremely well organised by Ghan and because the guides were professional, highly experienced, conscientious and considerate as well as being warm and friendly. We always leave here with new friends! In short we had the trip of a lifetime and can only express our wholehearted thanks to Ghan for making yet another Himalayan dream become reality. See less...
