Namaste Pradip, I am writing to let you know that a fantastic trek I had with your company and especially the great job of our guide Ngima Sarki Sherpa in getting me to Mt. Everest base camp. This adventure was my seventieth birthday present to myself and because of your company and Ngima outstanding guide skills, it was a complete success! Ngima was very professional and knowledgeable in so many aspect of trekking.
For example, when we got to the higher altitudes, I lost my appetite and could not eat. He always watched over my meals, persuaded me to try to eat a little more, or to take a few more bites, and son ensured that I could keep up my strength for climbing and trekking.Also I was a little self – conscious about slipping on rocks and falling, so I was being extra careful as we went up steep ascents or down deep descents.
Ngima stayed by my side, sometimes holding my arms, helping me cross wet rocks in streams and assisting me when climbing was very difficult to over loose rocks, When needed, he would have his assistance guide or porter help me as well.My friend trekking with me got headache as we gained higher altitude and Ngima was right there to help and he know just what to do , making sure she was warm and drinking enough water. She also got sick after eating some food and he watched after her and gave her medicines to ensure she could continue the trek.
He studies a lot of different subjects to prepare him to assist trekkers and I feel very lucky that I had someone so knowledgeable for my guide on the trek to Everest base camp.The assistant guide Nuru and the porter Pasang were also very friendly, caring and incredibly helpful. Ngima management to them and their individual enthusiasm and professionalism, made this trek run very smoothly no matter what circumstances we encountered: rain, sickness, forgotten pieces or gear or difficult terrain.When I trek again, I will absolutely use Mountain Monarch as well as ask for Ngima as my guide. Thank you again for such a wonderful experience
