Great time

The trip was perfect for me before I flew to London. I chose them as I read their reviews online and even had talk with Naba before booking the trip. They handled everything like a family member far away. We had good talk. Naba is the perfect person to meet for any trip to Nepal. He himself has good knowledge of Nepal trek and all the operations for the trip. He had good connection with everyone. I was lucky enough to have found him. Highly recommended company for any trip to Nepal.

My wife knew Naba since last year and we organized this trip with him. He met with us personally at Thamel before we book. He was trustworthy and a wonderful guy. His team is professional who knows what to do and had connection with everyone for the trip. The trip was fantastic, the weather was perfect and the views were simply mindblowing.
