      4.5 - Excellent

      Had a truly fantastic three and a bit weeks away on the Everest Base Camp/Island Peak trek. The itinerary that was executed significantly enhanced the experience for all of us. Rather than be exposed to the high traffic routes from the outset, we took a less heavily trafficked route from Namche Bazaar to Khumjung, and thence to Phortse before rejoining the more densely trafficked route at Dingboche. Not only did these changes get us (even further) off the beaten track, but they further reduced the likelihood of us experiencing altitude sickness. We were extremely impressed by the knowledge and experience of our all local guides. In the early stages of the trek, our lead guide, insisted on us undertaking "optional" walks, the sole purpose of which was to get additional vertical metres into our bodies before returning to a lower altitude to sleep. As a consequence, none of us experienced any AMS symptoms....and this without any of us having to resort to taking Diamox. The standard of meals was excellent. I think going into the trek, our two biggest concerns were over the quality of the accommodations and meals. The meals were excellent throughout - and that stepped up another notch when we got into Island Peak Base Camp where we had our own cooks.....I don't think I've ever tasted a better toasted sandwich than those provided to us upon our arrival there! The standard of the guides was outstanding. In particular, the lead guide. His knowledge of the area added significantly to us developing an understanding of local Sherpa culture and his understanding of the causes of and treatments for AMS provided us with great reassurance that should unforeseen circumstances afflict us, he would be more than capable of dealing with it. I cannot speak highly enough of him, and the other guides.
