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.

Overall it was an amazing experience. I went on this trek with a friend of mine and both of us are very much beginners. However, the guide was extremely patient and a lot of fun! The overall pace of the trek was very enjoyable. The lodges were decent enough, with very friendly staff and good food. The guide was also nice enough to advise us on the kinds of food we should be taking and how best to deal with AMS.

I reallyoved this tour! Bisham, our guide, was an amazing guide and a wonderful travel companiin. everything functioned very well. I would only suggest adding to the list of what to bring crampons in case of heavy snowfall or ice.

The trip was just amazing ! Wasn’t super tiring , places where we stayed over night were also comfortable , with nice view . The guide Dansay was attentive and had lots of interesting stories, would like to do similar trip again

A brilliant hike, can only be recommended. Our guide Motiv guided us perfectly through the day, he responded to all our needs and wishes. Tour and pick-up everything was perfect. would we do it again
