Success is not by Chance
By Marco Gorin - A trek in the Himalayas is no walk in the park. It requires a lot of preparation and logistics. It requires good coordination and rapport between all participants. It takes a lot of thinking to minimize risk and maximize the chances of success for all participants depending on their level of experience and fitness. Basically like for most ventures it requires the work of many.
Like last year's trek around Annapurna this year Everest Express will be taking care of all logistical needs from the time we land in Kathmandu on 6th November.
Everest Express was formed in 1981 under the stewardship of Mr. R. R. Pandey, the Chairman and CEO, a veteran with 45 years in the tourism industry. Its Managing Director, Mrs. C.L. Pandey, also has 45 years of experience in the field.
Since its establishment, Everest Express has grown into one of the largest travel agencies in Nepal. It is now the GSA for Singapore Airlines and Silk Air in Nepal and is one of the leading Destination Management companies of the country. It offers services to many popular Himalayan destinations, from Nepal to Tibet and Bhutan. They are an active and approved Trekking Agency by Government of Nepal and affiliated with the Trekking Agency Association of Nepal.
I had and will have the pleasure to trek with RR and enjoy the astonishing level of commitment to service, the environment and the well being of trekkers he and his team are able to deliver irrespective of altitude, situation or weather conditions.
Some of Everest Express 55 staff now ranks among the circle of people I refer to as FRIENDS. Not only are they highly trained and knowledgeable multilingual guides, above all, they are extremely caring human beings whom operate expertly behind the scene and never stop delivering over and above any reasonable expectations.
Together with RR Pandey they most probably are the best ambassadors that Nepal could hope for.
