Testimonials

"I would like to extend my gratitude to the following people: Cordelia (guide), for making
herself available, accessible, and accountable at all times before, during, and after the trek,
and for always maintaining such an open and engaging attitude; you and Joe, for being so
efficient and dedicated in working behind the scenes and around the clock to organize my trip
itinerary; and last, but certainly not least, the local Nepali staff whom you selected to
accompany me on this trek. My utmost appreciation goes out to Kul Gurung (head of kitchen
staff), Lal Gurung (associate trekking guide), Santosh Gurung (associate trekking guide), and
Ramesh (kitchen staff - last name unknown) for everything they did for me on this trek. These
four workers completely took charge and went way beyond their initial job descriptions to take
care of those remaining trekkers in the group. Words truly cannot express how I feel about the
commitment these people made to ensure that my trek was not compromised in any way, and I must
say that my ascent up to Kala Pattar was made that much more complete because all of us as a
team had triumphed. I understand that Mr. Rawal is the CHE supervisor for these individuals in
Kathmandu, and I would really appreciate it if you could pass along this message to him so that
he may commend his workers on a personal level for a job truly well done."

I had a wonderful time! I can’t even begin to describe it, but let me mention that Cordelia was great as was the Nepalese staff. I feel like I made some good friends, as well as had some amazing experiences. Back home, I wonder: was that Heaven? And were they angels?

This was a lifetime dream for me and all my expectations were met and more! The country is so beautiful and the people so extraordinary. the staff all work so hard to please and treat you like family with such caring and involvement. Our trip leader Cordelia is a wonderful person, and I was pleasantly surprised by our cook who kept us so well fed. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Corrine Preisler, Montreal, QC

Excellent trip! It ran very smoothly and I enjoyed the staff who worked hard to accommodate various interests, walking speeds etc. I was very impressed with what our cook could whip up in remote locations and loved the fact that there was a de-emphasis on fried foods.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’ve been on treks all over the world with different companies, and this is my 11th trek in Nepal, and the C. H. E. organization and staff are by far the best I’ve ever come across!
