Makalu base camp trek

“To whom it may Concern!
After three treks in the Himalayas with Mountain Sherpa Trekking, Everest Base camp in Oct/Nov 2001, Anapurna Circuit in Oct/Nov 2006 and Makalu base camp in Oct/Nov 2009, I still want to go back to Nepal and meet with Mountain Sherpa Trekking professional crews. After over 60 days trekking under my belt and passing through many mountain villages, I still get surprised by new things, new sights and new experiences. I also can highly reccomend this local company to anyone who wants to visit Nepal. ”
