  1. Great Company that Shouldn't be Missed
    Benze La DivasJuly 23, 2020

    We went with Damu and it was such a great time since he gave us a really good support allover this trip. On the way to the base camp, he always told us about what is on our surrounding. This company is really great because he doesn't care only about his own benefit but also care more about the customer, I really love when he kept updating us about the plan of each days since there will always be some changes due to the weather and situations. Our guide "Damu" and our porter worked well with us and impress us along the way. And on my opinion, if you are planning to come to Nepal for trekking, you should consider this company, because he will always offer you reasonable price as well as a great support to make sure that your trip will be memorable. We are really happy to know you and hopefully go back to do trekking with you again this year.
