    “Best Trekking Experience ever…Everest High Pass Trekking”

    In August 2013 Paul at Discovery World Trekking organised my trek to Everest high pass trekking . From the start he was so professional and nothing was too big of a problem. He explained everything to me and although he was organising the trek i still felt like I was in control and had an active roll. He matched me up with a guide that was perfect for me and during the trek always kept in contact to make sure things were ok. My guide Harry was a really great guy and a lot of fun. It felt more like I was trekking with a friend. Overall the whole experience made my dream of visiting Everest high pass trekking and absolutely amazing experience. I can definitely recommend Paul and the team for their friendly professional and caring approach. They will get you to your goal. Thanks guys That was a once in a lifetime experience.
