This was my second trip with OneSeed and was seriously one of the best experiences of my life. The OneSeed team in Nepal is amazing, and the Denver team did a great job getting us prepared for the trek. The trek is long and difficult at times, and even though I never had any major issues with the elevation I definitely felt it as we got closer to Base Camp.The view of Everest from Kala Patthar is also awesome. Our guide, Goma, and assistant guide, Gelu, took great care of the entire group of 7 of us and we all made it to Base Camp.
Knowing that 10% of the trip went back to entrepreneurs in Nepal was a great feeling, and knowing that we were supporting local businesses and locals everywhere we traveled was another great factor. Cannot wait to go back to Nepal and when I do it will be with OneSeed.
What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take training for the trek seriously - you are trekking for a long time at elevation - and bring lots of warm clothes! Nights get cold and even though the Tea House common areas are heated the bedrooms are not. I was grateful to have layers to sleep in, even with a 0 degree sleeping bag (went in early March which is colder that other times of the season).
