Client Reviews

My first time outdoor trekking, thank u so much... I enjoyed my trip from the start to the end. It was hard for me during the first week to adapt to Nepal, especially in the mountains but you and your boys have made me so determined to come here again. You are not just a guide but have become my good friend. I learned a lot from you while in Nepal. I am fascinated by your stamina and ability to climb throughout the trip...I will miss Nepal... especially your musical songs. It was great to see such talent in your team. I will definitely recommend my friends to you, don't worry... It was a great 3 weeks with you once again.

Thank you so much... It was a great experience. I will miss your cooking too....:-))
