Traveler Reviews

We plan to go for a 6days trekking adventure in Nepal and we found out about this excellent travel agent that has been taking care of us since day 1. The travel agent has helped us alot by taking us to find good stuff for the trekking gears and also suggest many tourist spots such as the ancient Bhaktapur and Durbar Square.We are more than thrilled to explore the beauty city of Kathmandu and also Pokhara. Very nice and warm welcome from the people of Nepal and also not forgotten the company agent, Mr Tej Gurung himself always make himself free to join us wih our daily activity before we start our trekking journey with our guide, Mr Dhan. The nice people of Nepal makes me want to come again. Good place to visit and do some trekking.

We are a group of 3 having only a short holiday of about 6 days and trekked in Nepal for the first time. We read there would be many tourists in Poon Hill and so we chose the new trek to Mohare Danda in mid-March. We trekked for about 4 days from Galeshwor (1170m) to Banskharka (1526m), Nangi (2320m), to Mohare Danda (3300m), down to Khibang, and then back to Pokhara. The trek was wonderful. With Ammar Gurung as our guide and Dal Gurung and Iman Gurung as our porters (from Nepal Alternative Treks & Expeditions), we saw beautiful rhododendron, walked in hail and snow in the mountains. On the steep snowy slope, with the help of attentive Ammar, experienced Dal and entertaining Iman, I thought I was flying on the snow! Staying in the community lodges in the mountains, it was freezy cold and it was good the company
