for Everest Base Camp Trek
"The organisation right from the start was excellent. Everything worked like clockwork throughout. The pre-trek briefing prepared us for the trip and the Kathmandu hotel was first class.

The Porters actually did the hard work and seemed to make it look easy!
For me though the guy who really made it an extraordinary adventure was our Guide: Milan. Nothing was too much trouble, he coaxed and cajoled us when the going was tougher and set a pace that meant that we all made Base Camp. Absolutely one of the nice guys!
Fab company and fab crew!"

for Glimpse of Nepal
"Our recent trip to Nepal was incredible. This would not have been possible without the head office team led by Prem Khatry. As CEO and founder, Prem is both an entrepreneur and compassionate community leader. His team's attention to detail was key to our trip. Upon our initial visit with him in Nepal he assessed our needs and quickly suggested we do the ultralight flight in Pokhara, which of course, we knew nothing about - and it turned out to a major highlight of our Nepal visit. This chap Prem, raised in the mountains of Gorkha, knows his stuff.

Our pick for guide of the year - is the guide that truly made our entire trip special - Dill Tamang. Having been involved in this sector for many years his immense knowledge flows out of him as you walk through magical Nepal with your mouth wide open. Dill, who himself was born in a remote village in Nepal showed us the incredible beauty of Nepal in so many ways. He understood us within the first day. A highlight was Dill searching out the Guru Rinpoche Cave for us even though it was not on the original tour - he made it happen.

for Everest Base Camp Trek
"Adventure of a Lifetime
By: Larry C

I have done trekking adventures through the Grand Canyon, on the Appalachian Trail, the Inca Trail in Peru, and to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, but the Everest Base Camp Trek with this local travel specialist was the most adventurous, culturally educational, and scenic trip of my life! The feeling of awe and accomplishment in completing the trek in sight of the peak of the highest mountain on earth is indescribable and unforgettable. Thank you so much to Prem and all of his staff for making this the perfect trip of a lifetime!

The agency was there every step of the way in ensuring our trip ran smoothly – from picking us up at the airport, to our stay at the beautiful Thamel House Hotel, to all arrangements, permits, meals, transportation, and especially the extra special return by helicopter! The helicopter ride was perhaps the coolest thing I have ever seen in my life, as we drifted over high mountain passes, dipped close to blue mountain lakes, and got over an hour’s worth of stunning landscapes as we flew from Gorak Shep to Lukla then on to Kathmandu. It was such a memorable and relaxing way to end our trek after so many challenging days of hiking. They even closed out our trip to Nepal with a nice congratulatory dinner and the award of certificates, and then provided our transport to the airport, assisting us with everything during our entire stay in Nepal.

And now, most importantly, I must say that the person who really was most responsible for the enjoyment and success of our trip was our guide, Pasang Dawa Sherpa. Pasang was absolutely amazing! He not only led us every step of the way, but he was always so positive and encouraging. Pasang is such a friendly, humble man, but he always took charge of everything, and every village we came to he was so well known and respected by everyone. Pasang had a great sense of humor and an unlimited knowledge of the mountains, the cultures, the religions, and the history of the Khumbu Region we were hiking through. He was such a great guide in every way, and I would feel so privileged to follow his lead again when I make my next trip to Nepal.

I must not complete my review without sharing my greatest appreciation and admiration for our two porters, Sunny and Lhakpa. They were like Supermen carrying our extra duffel up the mountains, and even though they did not speak English, it was easy to tell that they were kind, friendly, and so helpful to us all the way to the end of the trek. Our group of four hikers from Ohio completed this trip on October 29, 2022.

"This was the perfect company to plan the trek with. Sujan and the office team had great communication and were able to arrange everything perfectly. I added more sightseeing for the city and this was also extremely well handled with a great guide named Dil who was very knowledgeable and thoughtful teaching me about Nepali culture. I plan to use them again in the near future for EBC or ABC trek"
