What people are saying about Pashchimanchal, Western Region

We really enjoyed our experience on this tour. Pick up was prompt and smooth. The guide was fantastic, gave us lots of useful information, answered all of our questions and his English was very clear. We were very lucky that the clouds were clear on our day so the views of the Himalayas were fantastic and we were one of the first groups up to the viewpoint. This is a short tour (although could be longer if you choose to make a stop for tea) which we thought was the perfect time given the very early start. Overall I would definitely recommend this experience as we got some great photos.
