My most memorable Nepal Tour

Recently did this Best Tour of Nepal with Third Rock. I am back to my hometown but my mind and memories are still mingling with my days in Nepal. As I sleep or rest, the memories from the Nepal tour take shape and I end up embracing them for quite some time. I still remember the moments in Chitwan National Park, the street of Bandipur Town and the ambiance of Pokhara. Sightseeing in Pokhara and KTM was the best part of the tour. Man, I loved every single day of this tour. My guide was just perfect companion for the tour. I couldn't imagine anyone in his place. He was friendly and like a computer system, who would do everything perfectly. Shoutouts to the guide of Third Rock Adventures.

Perfect Combo Nepal Trip

This trip is one of the unique tours one can embark on in Nepal. I have done EBC, ABC and Mardi Trek and they were strictly Himalayan Trek but this is a combination of himalayan trek, sightseeing, and days tour. I can't imagine any other tour that can be compared with it. Thank you third Rock for this itinerary. I said yes at once when I heard about the tour and itinerary. I mean I did trek to Namche Bazar, sightseeing in Kathmandu, strolled around the street of Ktm, drove to Pokhara, did Jungle Safari in Chitwan, and guess what, visit the historic town of Bandipur. If you want to get the best of Nepal, this could be the TOUR for you.

Shoutout to the Guide

I am writing this review to let you all know that THird Rock has some of the best guide for Nepal Tour/Trek. I am not sure how many reviews here have shine lights on the great guides of Third Rock but I would like to clearly say that they are truly great guides. He is friendly, knowledgeable and astute; He shared (my guide Babu) every possible little details of the trek, made sure I am enjoying the moment and would decide for the best. He has backup for unforseen circumstances, and the team in Ktm would be in contact with him at any given time. My guide made sure that I recieve the best-available rooms, food and facilities. I did'nt even have to say anything to him. He would request to do, and at the end of the way, most of the time he would ask if everything is great. And I had to say yes, and thank him. AND YES, he made sure that I am safe, sound and enjoying. Loved the spirit and professionalism of the guide. Means alot to clients like me, who appreciate little gesture.

Loved the country

I'm back from Nepal and writing review of my tour. I loved the country, the people and specially mountains. I had an opportunity to admire the views of Everest, Mt. Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, and Ama Dablam. I walked through the popular Namche Bazaar, Lukla, and Sagarmatha National Park. My guide explained all-details of the trek. Once we are done with the trek, we descend to popular places in Nepal like Pokhara, Chitwan, and Bandipur before I head to Kathmandu. Bandipur village was the lovliest attraction of this itinerary. I enjoyed Jungle Safari at Chitwan National Park amidst green lush forests.
