  1. Best Experience with Mission Summit Treks
    By Jhon
    from USA
    December 8, 2022
    Damu was an outstanding guide & friend! It was so easy to plan our trip from Australia with Damu advising us. Together we put an itinerary together and he then organized everything. Travel, accommodation, food and porters were all above excellent! He does a wonderful job making our group feel safe and supported at all times. He is constantly but quietly checking everyone is OK. 😊 We were one very happy team including porters. Damu is a wonderful role model for the young porters who he is also training to be future guides. Our time in Nepal would not have been the same without Mission Summit Trek. I cannot fault the attention to detail and care we received. Forever friends 😊
