Dear Trekking Planer,my dad and me had a really good time while our base camp trip. Everthink was perfect!The organization of the company trekking planer Nepal was excellent. Dipak the boss of the company is such a friendly and good guy. You can feel that he likes the best for all of his customers that they can enjoy there trip.Our guide , Gayljen, was a really professional guide. He has a lot of know how about the economic and the culture of Nepal. He did a great job and we were really lucky to be with him, thank you for that good time bro !We wish your company the best. Hope we will see us again.
I could sit here and write for hours about the amazing time I had with Dipak and his team but Nepal is truly something that has to be experienced for yourself. Buy the ticket, enjoy the ride.
Communication with Dipak was fantastic - he was quick to reply to all questions and was accommodating of our requests, be they around customizing the trek or payments. Had a great time with Suneal, the guide and Buddha, the porter. They were both very considerate, watchful and always made efforts to ensure our comfort.
Dipak was thoughtful and customer-orient from the onset. He advised on training plan, schedule customisations, and gear/equipment in very quick email comms. Suneel, the guide on the EBC climb, was supportive and consistently looked after welfare. He was the perfect balance of caution, competition, and challenge. I thoroughly enjoyed climbing and descending with him as companion (alongside the hundred yaks).
