I have been travelling a lot, but the trekking trip to Gokyo Lake, Chola Pass and Everest Base Camp was the best holiday, I have ever spent in my life. Like five years ago in the Annapurna region, there was nothing at all to complain.
In one word, everything was perfect again. Thank you very much for the fantastic arrangement, planning and organisation of our trip. The service was great and absolutely professional.
Every day we could enjoy spectacular views, sceneries and landscapes. I will never forget these days in my life.
A special Thank You also to our guide Lok and our porter Raj. They were the best possible duo you can imagine, always nice, kind and helpful. Once I was struggling on one day, they even carried my small backpack. Eventually we became friends very soon.
This was our second time in Nepal, but definitely not the last one. And of course you will arrange and plan our third trip as well. There is no doubt about it ! Thank you very much again for everything. I really do appreciate your kindness and hospitality.
Take care and all the best. See you soon again.
I have been with Nepal Hiking twice now, and I’m sure there will be a third time. I did the Gokyo/Everest Base Camp trek with them in 2007. When we were planning a new trip to Nepal this past Christmas, I didn’t even both to look at other companies. I was so impressed with Nepal Nepal Hiking’s service the first time that I contacted Mr. Tilak again and booked our new trip.
In fact, the owner Mr. Tilak is such a nice fellow that we met him for dinner and we still keep in touch. All of their staff from Mr. Tilak and Mr. Bhairam to the guides, porters and drivers are top notch professionals.
I will definitely highly recommend this company to anyone planning to visit Nepal.
