Excellent expedition from Elite Exped. Every aspect from booking to summit was excellently planned, communicated and delivered. Nims has put together a phenomenal team of Sherpas, Administration and support staff. The team arrived to Kathmandu and were picked up at the airport in 4x4’s and taken to the Kathmandu Marriott for a couple of nights of team bonding and dinners. Nims engaged the team from the start with a motivational introduction to the expedition, the team and our journey ahead. We commenced with the famous flight into Lukla and then trekked to Namche Bizarre where we stayed overnight and had an amazing dinner at the famous Sherpa Barista. Onwards towards base camp via the famous Tengboche Monastery - incredible! Base camp was 5 star - food, tents and incredible service from everyone of Nims’ team. Training was provided in all the basics of safety in the mountains and technical skills for abseiling and ascending with a jumar. One rotation to Camp 2 - each of us with a dedicated Sherpa - most of whom are world record holders. Summit day was tough but hugely rewarding and safely supported via our one to one Sherpas. Celebration back at base camp with a beautiful chocolate sponge cake and finally a helicopter back to Kathmandu. Nims is passionate about ensuring all clients have an excellent experience and of course a safe climb. Every member of his team lives by his values and nothing is too much trouble. Phenomenal expedition from start to finish - highly recommended for all from those wishing to embark on a new passion for mountains (albeit perhaps an easier mountain to start!) to experienced and seasoned climbers and adventurers.
Manaslu 2019 was my first 8,000er and first time with Elite Himalayan Adventures and they did not disappoint! They exceeded my expectations at every level and stage including, - Booking & pre-exped admin - Arrival, gear check and logistics - Transportation & Hike in to base camp - Base camp & acclimatisation & daily briefings - Climb, Summit (successfully) and safe return - Post exped celebrations and assistance on further trips in Nepal, travel arrangements, etc Every member of the team was professional in all aspects of the expedition and I would have no hesitation in booking with them again! Highly recommended!!!
Manaslu climb with the best of the best, experienced guides, amazing food & logistics at basecamp and higher camps, bullseye for the pick of the Summit Day, excellent camaraderie on the mountain, Nims David & all the sherpas Hatts Off can't wait to climb with you again!
I was amazed how humbled elite team, and Elite Himalayan Adventure Leader been responsible in every step during the expedition. Over an above safety of individual were always the main priority by the expedition leader from beginning till the end. I wish Elite Himalayan Adventure Leader and Sherpa team all the best.
