Myself and my eldest son fulfilled a lifetime ambition by trekking to Mount Everest in April 2015.After a lot of research we signed up with Adventure Nepal Eco Treks and were not disappointed.The company is owned by Devi Baral and from our first contact until the end of our trip our experience was fantastic.Everything was taken care of for us with the minimum of fuss and any query was sorted out quickly and efficiently. Devi had just opened a small hotel in Thamel Kathmandu to facilitate his clients. The hotel was very clean with great food and good showers (a necessary luxury) and very central to all Kathmandu Attractions. Night or day Devi was on hand to help us and even came with me to a cash point that had kept my card. He rang a few numbers,got cross and within an hour i had my card returned. I will review our trip in a further review but i can easily recommend Adventure Nepal Eco Treks to all. We intend to return to this beautiful country again as a way of helping them rebuild after the Earthquake Tragedy. I will definitely use Devi and his company and i advise anyone thinking of trekking in Nepal to do the same. We were in Nepal from the 3rd - 21st April 2015.
