Guest houses were very good and the food excellent.
Had a great trek to EBC with Mountain Hawk in March 2012. Badri was our excellent guide and Niraj our porter. Everything was organised so well and our safety came first. Guest houses were very good and the food excellent. I recommend Mountain Hawk to anybody.

Cho La high pass from EBC to Goyko third time in 2016.
We came back to Nepal in January 2014 and once again relied on Prem and his team at Mountain Hawk Trekking. This time Prem looked after us on two treks: Kanjing Gompa and Goyko - Goyko Ri.
- Vladimir and Trisha Prpich
Prem was my guide and friend during my Everest Base Camp - Gokyo trek in Oct 2007. Prem is an excellent guide in many ways. He has great knowledge of the mountains, the people, the cultures and special things that only an experienced local guide can provide
