    Poon hill trek Nepal

    Dipak and his team made sure I had an incredible time and took the stress out of all the planning!! I arrived in Nepal with no plans and they organized the Poon Hill/Ghorepani trek for me with no hassles and organized other activities too. Dipak answered every question and ensured I was always satisfied. I had a homestay with his family who were also justas caring and genuine as he was! I would highly recommend this company, you won’t find better people that are more willing to please!

    Excellent human and professional quality. Highly recommended!

    I did a seven days Poon Hill trek and, even if I was scared about cold and difficulty of the walk, all was absolutely perfect. Suman Dhakal, my guide, is a great professional and a wonderful person who took care of me and every Moment, and Deepak (the organizer), organised all perfectly in order to get the best experience of this wonderful country. The country is awesome and its people is the best. I would definitely come again to view the heavenly beauty of this country and i m going to choose this agency for exceptional planning who has experienced and explorable team like Suman dhakal and Deepak(the organizer) himself. I pleasely recommend Trekking Planner for explorable and exceptional trek who has an experienced team. And thanks for Deepak making my holiday more beautiful than i expected by providing me such sort of tallented and desciplined guide. Una muy buena experiencia, excelentes profesionales tanto Deepak, el boss, como Suman, el guía; flexibles, buenos conocedores de la zona y magníficas personas. Recomendable sin ninguna duda.
