Reviews

Jorrel Hill Chang , United State of America

We took short Everest trek package because we had a little time in Nepal. The time limit caused us to make the trip a bit short, but the customization of the itinerary by the staffs at the agency really helped me to fulfill my dream of trekking to Everest into a reality. I really recommend Nepal Hiking team because they were extremely and profoundly effective in their deals and the total price of the package was also arranged by them, which was super convenient for us! The trek itself was amazing, and simply wonderful.

I loved the sceneries, and the wonderful natural surroundings that the place has. I loved visiting the religious gumbas, and the dainty colorful prayer flags at every tree btanch and the soires of the monasteries were such a lovely sight. The topography of the whole place was so different; I had never experienced anything quite like that anywhere else. The people and their lifestyles were all also so different; it was quite frankly, humbling to see. The accommodations that we stayed at, the little guesthouses and lodges up in the snow of the mountains were brilliant. I loved my experiences of waking up early in the morning, and then having my breakfast on the terraces of the tea houses overlooking the beautiful and serene Himalayan rages, it was heaven! Nepal Hiking Team took care of everything, and as a result, I ended up having a marvelous time, and I really would say to everyone that you better go with Nepal Hiking Team because they really deliver on their services!
