    Kathmandu Valley Trek, Highly recommended.

    This company, its leadership and all it’s guides are top notch. Their expertise, adaptability and guidance was integral in creating a fantastic experience for our group while we were in Nepal and during our 4 day hike through the Kathmandu Valley.

    Suman and his team went above and beyond to ensure we were able to experience the beauty of the Nepalese landscape, the hospitality of the Nepalese people and the uniqueness of the culture. If I could rate higher than 5 stars I would. Highly reputable and highly recommended organization.
