My wonderful trip to Nepal where I trekked in the Himalayas to Everest Base Camp for 16 days was organised by Alpine Adventures.  I cannot recommend them highly enough.  Everything went like clockwork from the initial interest to the final leaving dinner in Katmandu.

The staff in Katmandu were so accommodating.  Our guide, Eaklal was so thoughtful and let us go at our own pace, because I can tell you, it was not as easy as I thought it would be.  The mountains are rugged and uneven with lots of rocks and steps to climb, not to mention the numerous suspension bridges.

What can I say about the two Sherpa porters who not only walked with us but usually arrived before us and carried all the luggage.  They were incredible.  

The first night's accommodation was quite luxurious.  Then we stayed in tea houses while climbing.  Adequate and comfortable considering all food, water, etc had to be carried either by man or by yak.  The toilets were a challenge!

Back in Katmandu, I stayed in the Blue Horizon hotel which was lovely.  Very friendly staff and it was near Thamel, the hippie centre where we walked every day.  Sightseeing in Katmandu was also arranged and we had a brilliant day going to a Bhuddist memorial and a Hindu temple where real cremations were taking place which was quite something to behold.

I can really recommend this company if you want to trek.  Everything was well managed.  We were even taken to buy gear that was still necessary such as down jackets and hiking sticks.

I miss Katmandu:-)
