Just got back from an 8-day trek around the Everest region! It was incredible! I highly recommend this company! They took care of everything and catered to our individual group needs. Raj knows his stuff and really cared about our wellbeing the entire time. It was an amazing adventure!
There really are no words to accurately capture what it was like to trek with Green Society Adventure and see the wonders of Everest Himalayas. Truly a breathtaking experience and one that I will never forget! Raj was such an awesome guide! Super knowledgeable about the mountains, vistas, history, and everything in-between, and always willing to answer my million and one questions. It was a pleasure to get to know him and his porters, and I will ABSOLUTELY come back and hire him in a heartbeat. Thank you Green Society and team for everything!
I trekked with Green Society Adventure twice to Gokyo and EBC. Both treks were great and very affordable. Raj is a really very nice guide, always kind, helpful and sincere. He arranged both of our treks. The overall experience was just amazing :) Many thanks to Green Society Adventure and Raj! I'm planning to arrange my next trip to Upper Mustang with them too.
I organize an EBC trek with Green Society Adventure and my guide is one of the best, kindest, fabulous. He is considerate, kind and allows people to walk at their own pace. Best experience ever to be had if your trek is led by Raj. So, come on people, get back to Nepal and experience all it has to offer. Isn't it enough that all the people in Nepal suffered after the earthquake? Now they are suffering from a lack of tourism and thus a lack of income. Get to Kathmandu and experience one of the most mystical places on the planet - NEPAL!! I'd highly recommend Raj and Green Society Adventure to any future trekkers.
