          Everything went as amazing as possible! We did the Nagarkot Chisopani trek, some other city tours and Everest flight experience. Our guide, Chamar, was a great presence to be around. He's charming, kind and extremely knowledgable about the trails around Kathmandu and up to Everest base camp. The treks themselves were interesting routes with great views and tons of opportunities to see how locals live and eat. Furthermore, the staff at Outshine and especially Gokul were always professional, efficient and catered to our needs, even if it wasn't a part of their normal tour plans. The flight is must do for those that don't have enough time or energy to make it to base camp. All in all, I highly recommend Outshine!
