“Fantastic trip and excellent service. The company owner Chhatra was always available, quick to respond to queries and gave sound advice, has a genuine service attitude and is very friendly. I felt in very good hands.

My guide Shiva was extremely nice, helpful, and very knowledgable. I had a number of fellow Trekkers telling me that I seemed to have a lot of luck with my guide. One person said: I rather listen to your guide than mine. Another fellow trekker without a guide said: if I ever do another trek in Nepal I'll make sure I get Shiva as my guide.”
