Shim Han ki (South Korea)
Trekking to Everest base Camp seemed like a formidable task at first for me. But, since I decided that I really needed to put some flavour into my life, I decided to do the trekking journey pretty much on a whip! I decided upon White Himalayas Treks. From various recommendations, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed! I decided upon Everest because I thought it would be a good first time to start off on the trek, and then decide upon other additional treks later on, based on how I was liking it. I loved! White Himalayas Treks decided upon the customization of the itinerary, and re-scheduled the days for me, and made everything for me easier. The trek was just so good, it was done on such a professional level, and it’s just great! I think my absolute favorite part of the trek was hiking to the base camp itself, and then the vantage point on Kalapatthar, I took lots of amazing photography and I had within my viewfinder the most amazing views of the mountains! Everest, when you come up to it for the first time, is just astonishing. I live in a pretty flat surfaced area where I live, there isn’t much rigger on the terrain, and the sheer amount of ups and downs during the trek was a surprise and a nice little additional fun for me on the trip. The park was amazing; the atmosphere of the national park was very nice and peaceful. The trekking trails were easy, and the villages and the people on the trail were all very helpful. I enjoyed my stay at quaint little tea houses and trudging through the villages was also very refreshing from all the city life. The countryside there is so different, it just opens up like turning a page, one second I was traveling through the busy city of Kathmandu, and the next, it was like I was off to some remote isolated in-the-middle-of-nowhere place (which, come to think of it, is somewhat is exactly that), and the whole experience was very good. I really enjoyed my short time there, trekking on those lovely mountains, and I sure will miss the temples and the little children running around the places in the high elevation, and the very air of the peaks.
