Review of: Everest High Passes Lodge Trek

Our guide RD Tamang was fantastic, he is well experienced in the Everest region and very tentative to our needs. When we felt sick near the base camp, he advised an alternate route to go down first and then use a different (very quiet and nice) trail to reach Gokyo, which was critical for us to finish the trek.
