Everest Base Camp via Cho La
led by Pemba Sherpa




Pemba is a most considerate, knowledgeable and well connected first class guide. I took my family on this my fourth trek to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo. Pemba was really superlative in every aspect of his responsibilities, managing the challenging family requirements with great understanding and diligence. I could not have wished for a more competent guide to make our trek such a memorable one.
