Everest short trek is suitable for us because we had a very short time but we are really keen to see Mount Everest, this is our best choice with Himalayan Smile treks. The trek was amazing once in of my life time memories. We had an fantastic time and could not have wished for better views of Mt Everest. We had spent overnight at Everest view hotel, the view from hotel is stunning. Our guide Dharma and Porter Lakpa was so kind and friendly. We felt comfortable and welcome everywhere we went.
