Everest Climb with Dawa- @NGT

Great Trip with Nepal Guide Treks!!!!! – Successful wow,
We just get back from Mount Everest Climbing. Thanks to Nepal Guide for excellent climbing operation. Climbing of Mount Everest was our dream since many years and finally the dream came true. Before Everest climbing, we climbed Mera Peak, Island Peak and Lobuche Peak in Nepal with NGT. Nepal Guide takes care for safety and security of climbers – indeed!!!!! Our climbing guide Ang Dawa Sherpa is really brave climber with loads of experience in mountaineering field. He did great job for our trip. We faced many obstacles and difficulties during climbing – our guide always optimistic, dawa and whole team played crucial role. If they did small mistake we might be frozen in Everest….I cannot imagine that! All climbing guide should have excellent skills regarding several techniques – we experienced Dawa showed us best of the best ability behind us.  Trip overall – excellent (5 star)
Wish Nepal Guide for better future!!!! Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
