“Gorgeous trek, with far fewer people than EBC or langtang or ABC, and accessed by surface travel from Kathmandu. So many Tibetan refugees with deep, beautiful culture. If you're lucky, you might get to sit among the monks, in a mountaintop monastery, as they chant prayers. One of the most incredible moments of my life!”

“The company, especially Mr. Raj and Mahila welcomed and kept us safe as if we are their own flesh and blood. They are very knowledgeable in their crafts. I am truly grateful for them to guide us up to EBC & back safely.”

“Amazing friendly experience! Jaya my guide and Bimal my porter just gave me a great trekking experience during 5 days in the Pokhara area. I also then had a great connection to Chitwan. I recommend Thirdpole for any hiking excursion if you wish to have an authentic Nepali friendly experience!”
