What people are saying about Pokhara

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.

I had a great guide, the lodging was clean and the food was good. I would recommend bringing hiking poles and be sure to have a headlamp for the early morning poon hill climb. Cal

It was great, not for the faint of heart, but the guys know their stuff, although it's quite rustic at times. We would do it again.

Great experience!!! What an incredible view! The guides were really attentive and available. Super professional agency! I recommend!
