What people are saying about Kathmandu

The whole trip was amazing. Though we had to add three additional days of hiking as because of bad weather there were no flights to Lukla, we enjoyed it a lot. It was a little bit intense at the beginning as we wanted to get to the original plan asap, but we were glad for it in the end as we were able to see the more authentic side of Nepal. Later we continued on the trail as it was planned and successfully made it to both EBC and Kala Patthar. Our guide always took care of us and managed everything we needed and wanted with no problem. It was very comfortable to have a guide who can arrange everything as it was the first time we were in Nepal and to be honest, it can be a little bit chaotic for Europeans :)) Also, he managed us our porter and sometimes helped me with some my stuff himself <3 Hari, the organiser, was there for us all the time as well and ready to help and manage anything we needed. Back in Kathmandu we also had a nice little party. I can only recommend this trip!

The tour was well organized by Hari. Unfortunately there were no flights to Lukla due to bad weather. Therefore, a jeep was quickly organized to take us to Phaplu. So you could really see a lot of the landscape! From there it should then go on foot to Lukla in 2 days. We weren&#39;t prepared for the (unplanned) part of the tour and unfortunately overstretched ourselves. There was also a minor knee injury. So we decided to split the group up and got a new guide the next morning for free. Due to the injury, we only hiked as far as Lukla. Since there were no more flights to Ramecchap or Kathmandu in Lukla, Hari organized a helicopter for us. That too was a great experience! A few extra days in the hotel came on top of that! All in all very well organized and can only be recommended. Hari really makes everything possible for his guests!!:)

Excellent all the way. Anjan was assigned as my guide and was superb. They facilitated porter hire, who was also great. Loaned me sleeping bag, walking stick and duffle.

Had an amazing 3 days away at Chitwan, everyone at the hotel and all the guides very helpful, pick up and drop off were perfect. Would recommend

Pick up/drop off was easy & accommodation was great. Activities/itinerary were all very organized and timely! Fantastic trip!
