Being first time in high altitude has always been my concern for this trip. My wife – who’s done all the research, bookings and admin side of things – reassures me that Ace is the best reliable option for us, as it came strongly recommended by a friend. Alongside with Madan (our guide) & Jit (our porter), were also based on their well recommendation.
Pre-trek meeting at the office was done by Prem himself, felt very thorough. Prem spoke the truth about the risks being in the mountain, but with reassurance that Ace will take care of everything that needs to be done for our enjoyment & safety. I started showing symptoms on high altitude sickness after Pangboche, but Madan’s calmness in handling everything have put me at ease.
He’s got all the medication needed, and provided options on how to take this trip in a more comfortable manner – despite the symptoms I’ve had. I greatly appreciated him for that 🙏🏼 Our porter, Jit, had also done his part well, always assisting us a well mannered behavior and took care our bags responsibly.
Out of the many conversations we’ve had during the track, I appreciate that our guide always respected and included our porter as equal, and spoke highly of Prem. Giving us a sense of security and believe that they work well as a team because they respect each other so much 🙏🏼 great team, wonderful experience for us. Thanks, Ace the Himalaya!!
