Reviews

Zhilla Noorbakhsh , Australia

After successful accomplishment of ABC trek recently, I have returned from Nepal and cannot just utter about the service offered by Nepal Hiking Team in mere words. I did a widespread research about hiking companies and after contacting with some of them, I decided to choose Nepal Hiking Team and I am much satisfied with my choice. During the planning phase, while I was in Australia, Ganga was at all times very responsive to answer my various queries and gave a lot of information to make myself prepared for Annapurna Base Camp trekking.

Since I was a solo female traveler, I was rather anxious before arriving to Nepal. Yet, from the moment I landed at Katmandu airport, I felt safe and supported as I was picked up by Ganga gratifyingly at 11:30 PM, and my veteran guide Suraj was very wonderful person to travel with.

With the proper guidance of Suraj, I successfully accomplished ABC and he was much concerned about my ease and was very alert to satisfy my needs. He tried his best to present the best service. Accommodation was superb, food was incredible and Nepali people were generous with welcoming nature.

I would definitely travel with Nepal Hiking Team over and again for a stress-free and striking holiday.
