I sincerely recommend Nepal Hiking for trekking in Nepal. Tilak and Bhairam were kind and professional since the first contact by email until the end of my trip. I’m Brazilian and I would be very far away from home. I travelled first to India and arrived in Nepal sick unable to start the trekking on scheduled date. Tilak offered me all the necessary support, recommending a clinic and managed to postpone the start of the trek so I could recover well. I’m aware of the work behind it since October is high season in Nepal and it is not easy to change totally a trip scheduled for months.

The trek I did – Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek – was amazing and wonderful, a remarkable experience see some of Himalaya giants as Annapurna South and pass through Nepal villages to get closer to their culture and customs. The weather was wonderful. My guide, Bishnu, is a very good professional, good-humored all the time and really took care of me. He knew that I was sick some days before and provided special care with my food during the trek.

Nepal is a country with a soul. I felt at home and among friends. I take the opportunity to comment that people should not be afraid to travel alone since it is a wonderful way of making new friends from different countries and getting in touch with yourself.

Thank you very much Tilak, Bhairam and Bishnu. Namaste !!

We have enjoyed a special trekking holiday in Nepal, walking 80 km in 5 days, 3000 meters to Poon hill. It was beautiful but basic, sunny but so cold at night, lovely and hard… An unforgettable holiday!

Special thanks for the Bishnu.
