Traveller’s Review

It was a wonderful trekking experience! I enjoyed the imposing scenery and landscape. The guide (Suresh) was very friendly and had a lot of knowledge about the region. Thus, it made the trekking unforgettable to me! Also the porter (Baburam) was very friendly and helpful. Altogether Keshav did a great job to organize the whole stay in Nepal and the Tibet Trip. Thank you very much! I’ll recommended it in Germany.

Overall, we are 100% satisfied with the service of this company and we recommended you to travel Nepal through professional and knowledgeable tour operator.
