If you are heading into Nepal give them a call 5* doesn't seem enough, thank you for great times and memory's

Andy Ewels,

Everest View Trek

There are no words that can adequately describe the experience we had on the Everest View Trek (Lukla, Namche, Tengboche, the Dudh Kosi River and all the places in between). The word "Awesome" falls considerably short in describing our experience. My wife and I were recently married and from our first date we both had always wanted to trek in the Himalayas. Deepak was the catalyst that made our Trek one of the most tremendous experiences of our lives. He was knowledgeable about the the mountains and the cultures. He is also a very enjoyable person to be with. And that in and of itself is extremely important if you plan any type of extended Trek. My wife and I were lucky we had the chance to have Deeps as our guide. We still keep in contact with Deeps and have recommended him to friends. Our hope is to someday get back to Nepal, and when we do, there is only one person I would want for our guide.

Mike and Molly,

Jomsom Trek

We had a good trip in Nepal last year on part of the Annapurna circuit, the Jomsom trek, with Dipak as our guide. His experience and knowledge of the area is second to none and when we return to Nepal we will certainly be contacting him again. We received a first-class, personal service and, remarks from other visitors we met in various tea houses who had booked with other trekking companies, were that our package was superior to theirs. For a reliable service and interesting trek we strongly recommend this guide and his team.

Everest Base Camp Trek

Two tailor-made treks in the Nepal regions "Everest Base Camp Trek & Jungle Safari in Chitwan" We researched many companies to book our EBC trek and after exchanged e-mails with Dipak he helped plan our EBC trek, tour in Kathmandu and Jungle Safari in Chitwan in a professional, helpful and organized manner.

On arrival in Kathmandu, we were greeted at the airport with a friendly, warm welcome from Dipak and he helped settle us in at our hotel and took us out for a traditional Nepalese meal as well as organizing a day tour with guide of Kathmandu.

Dipak's organization of our EBC trek was wonderful and the guide he supplied on the trek was informative, friendly and very organized in looking after us, making sure we had enough food, tea, and a decent bed for the night after a long day walking. The trek was beautiful and we had an amazing experience. We went back to Kathmandu after the trek was finished and Dipak greeted us and hear about our adventure and keep us informed about our next part of the trip - Jungle Safari in Chitwan.

We stayed in Chitwan National Park for 4 nights 3 days and stayed at a lovely lodge by the river just outside the town. We went on Elephant safari, Jungle walks, bird watching, canoeing, traditional evening performance and much needed relaxing after our EBC trek. We had lovely accommodation and by the river and very helpful staff who looked after our every need. It was our first visit to Nepal and Dipak made our trip hassle free, organized and all with a warm welcome which meant we could enjoy our trek to the fullest.

I would recommend Dipak and Trekking Planner services and I myself would love to return to complete some Annapurna trekking in the future and will be using Trekking Planner Nepal to do so. Many thanks for such a brilliant holiday of a lifetime! Lauren Connors Visited November 2014

Lauren Connors,

Two tailor-made treks in the Nepal regions

" We have been trekking once with Dipak, when he was our guide on two tailor-made treks in the Nepal regions of Annapurna and Everest. We had booked these treks through an agency, and we were so impressed with Dipak's work that we stayed in contact with him. Two years later we went on a third trek..."
