This was one of the best holidays I have ever had. Devi arranged everything for us perfectly- buses, taxis, planes, hotels, all went without a hitch. And the TREKKING- wonderful- I could have stayed in the mountains another week- stunning mountain scenery, lovely people, fabulous rhododendrons, fascinating glimpses of medieval farming in an unbelievable landscape- and thanks to our guide Kumar all taken at an easy pace, with great places to stop at the end of the day. Will definitely be back, and will definitely use Adventure Nepal Eco Treks again!!
