“We had the best time in Nepal! The trek was very well organized and very professionally run. The guide and porter are very knowledgeable and professional as well as being really friendly with lots of jokes and laughs. They really did become part of our family while we were on trek.

All in all I had a fantastic trek and although it was challenging. it was very enjoyable and I really do want to come back to Nepal for more trekking.”
