Reviews

Incredible Nepal Trekking Experience

I had such an incredible trek and I could not have been happier that I chose Holiday Tours Nepal. Dipak took care of every last detail of the logistics of my trek from the tea houses, meals, flights and taxis. Perfection. I did the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek with the fantastic guide, Nirmal, who went out of his way to teach me about the culture, take me to the best spots, and offer support when the trails got slightly challenging. Nirmal knows the trails and the people in the villages so well, which just made the experience that much more magical. There are so many companies to choose from when trekking, but this is the one to choose, in my opinion. Highly recommended!
