While I am waiting for my last plane ride home, I would like to echo what Barry had already mentioned. I am still highly impressed by the organization and conduction of this trip. Ang Kami was a superb lead guide, in fact, we could not have had a better guide. Superb knowledge and ability to handle problems, all while being a great guy.
Same holds true for Ong Chu. Very detailed gear check, extremely attentive to our climbing gear , ropes carabiners etc, they would pick up any small imperfection and fix it before proceeding. Tendi was also great, complementing the climbing Sherpa team.
Dilip was a fantastic cook, with an affectionate big smile always. The porters they had picked were also great guys all around. I was surprised how careful our duffel bags were handled and how clean they still were at the end of the trip. The differences of your outfit compared to others became blatantly apparent on the mountain itself. In my mind, we were the only professionally lead team, with a huge focus on safety and a good safety margin for unforeseeable events. Dawa and Kay were master organizers in the background, and I still feel bad how quickly they got us out of Lukla by passing folks who had been stuck there for days and had already missed their flights home.
Thank you all for putting this fantastic trip together and for getting us safely up and down the mountain. I will highly recommend your company.
