I was doing my Himalayan trek alone as a female. Dipak was super considerate and sent me one experienced male trekking guide and another female assistant guide so that I could be taken good care of. Besides of that, Dipak has been super responsive on my questions and I received emails from him at midnight during Nepal time. I would definitely recommend Trekking Planner to anybody who would like to trek in Himalayas.
Namaste and warm greetings from Trekking Planner family!
