Gratitude to Ganga and Balaram from Nepal Hiking Team for arranging one of the best trekking journey that I went through with. The Poon Hill trek was basically recommended to me by Ganga and I decided to take up the trekking journey because of its appeals.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

Namaste! I highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team for your trekking adventure in the beautiful Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. This was my first trip to Nepal and additionally my first ever muli-day trek. Annapurna Base Camp Trek became a dream of mine about

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
