Two tailor-made treks in the Nepal regions

" We have been trekking once with Dipak, when he was our guide on two tailor-made treks in the Nepal regions of Annapurna and Everest. We had booked these treks through an agency, and we were so impressed with Dipak's work that we stayed in contact with him. Two years later we went on a third trek..."

Wonderful Trek and Tour

This company surprised me with its excellent service and caring staff. I did a short 6 day Annapurna trek with a young and attentive guide named Dibash who was always willing to go the extra mile (often literally) to make sure I had the best possible experience. I finished my trek satisfied in every way, excepting perhaps the feeling that I could have gone on much longer! My travel and accommodation around several cities in Nepal were also taken care of by Dipak, and I was quite pleased with this service as well. At the end of my stay I was even given complimentary transportation to the airport, accompanied by my guide and another friend I made in this incredible country. Thank you Dipak, Dibash, and the rest of the company for an experience of Nepal that I'll never forget! Visited May 2016
