Me and my Wife just returned from Everest panorama trek. It was beautiful, we are too old to go all the way to Base camp so made decision just to half way and slowly. Our guide are porter were excellent to move with our pace, organizing foods and accommodations. Furthermore, just very comfortable, one of the best holiday in our life.
