I am forever thankful to our wonderful Nepali guides Khadka Rai and Bir Bahadur Rai who guided me and Tim on the Khumbu trek via several high altitude routes eg. Chola Pass (5,420m), Gokyo Ri (5,357m), Chhukung Ri (5,546m). The only time I experienced altitude sickness was when we ascended Kala Patthar (5,644m) where I had stomach ache and mild nausea. Our guide Khadka kept checking in with me to make sure I was ok. We went super slow and ensured plenty of time to acclimatize, for example, we were advised to stay extra days in Khumjung which helped tremendously. If anyone is planning to go trekking in Nepal, I highly recommend these experienced guides.

Our trip to Nepal was a very special one. We had been planning a wedding but my wife and I decided that having a large wedding with many people was not the way we wanted to go so we decided to hike up to Mt. Everest base camp and do a private wedding there. We were put in touch with Bir Rai through a friend that highly recommended him. We were not disappointed. The trip was well planned and the guide Kadkar was highly knowledgable about the area and the people and wildlife there. The trip was very special to us and we have an amazing story to tell about our wedding. I can’t recommend Bir Rai and Kadkar highly enough, they really made our wedding the trip of a lifetime.
