“Trek to Everest Base Camp (EBC) and Gokyo Ri, 19 Feb - 7 Mar 2014” Testimonial

Adventure Nepal Eco Treks is a small Kathmandu company that provides professional and personal trekking services anywhere in Nepal.

Devi Baral and his crew make you feel important and nothing is too much trouble. From being met at the airport, until leaving again everything was arranged and on-time (other than things outside their control, like the arrival of my flight). The arrangements were flexible so when one member of the party was ill and a mountain pass was closed, our schedule was re-arranged so everyone got the best possible experience.

The guide and porters were competent, capable and lots of fun to be with. They made the trek a great experience and we all went home with lots of new friends.

Devi provided prompt replies to all correspondence and arranged all permits, transport accommodation and meals (and even purchase of forgotten equipment) so that all we had to do was enjoy .... and enjoy we did.

I have no hesitation in recommending Adventure Nepal Eco Treks for anyone thinking of visiting Nepal.

Regards,
