We booked EBC Gokyo trek 18 days from Sisne. One of my friends recommended us it’s name. I had been saving for a year for this trip and I wanted to utilize into something interesting and adventurous. Contacted Sisne and within few minutes they replied. Their response was very quick and they customized the trip according to my flight schedule and budget. We received a warm welcome from them. We also added Kathmandu sightseeing in our package which was an added value to our trip. The next day, we started our journey from Kathmandu with our guide. He was very professional and he knew his job very well. Appreciated for all his help during the trek. It was absolutely awesome to be in Everest base camp. Sisne put all the effort and went beyond to make our trip as comfortable and memorable as possible. At the end of the trip we were given a warm farewell dinner where the company’s president joined himself and we shared our experience about the trek. The genuine concerns from all the staff members is what I liked the most.
