I had an amazing time solo trekking for 3 days with Alpine Club of Himalaya and my guide - Pemba. The trek itself was beautiful, with stunning views, walk through villages, and wonderful night stays. I had an amazing time. My guide Pemba was so kind, patient and knowledgeable. He was a fantastic guide. Being a solo female traveller, I also felt very comfortable and free to enjoy this journey at my pace. I strongly recommend him and the team to anyone who decides to go on an adventure in Nepal.

A professional service and a reliable tour!….In August, I first experienced Bungee Jumping and then 3-4 days of Shivapuri climbing. I came to Nepal alone, but both my tour operator and my guide never made me feel alone. Experiencing trekking in Shivapuri even if I don't have much time. and seeing the scenery in Nagargot was an amazing experience. Before that, I did Bungee jumping as a daytrip. I definitely think it is something that should be experienced in Nepal. My tour operator Sujan was very helpful both before and upon arrival. The whole trekking with Pemba was a lot of fun. He was almost like a Map about the roads. Thank you both very much. I can't wait for my next trip

This trek passes through Shivapuri National Park, authentic villages and fields. We were rewarded with great views of the valleys. Before, during and after the tour we were well looked after. Especially our Guide's Pemba & Nima made this hike an unforgettable experience by introducing us to the incredibly friendly local people. Thanks a lot for this.
