We had a great trek with Trekking Planner and with our guide Suman. From the moment we got picked up by our guide from the airport to the moment we left Nepal (3 weeks after we finished our trek) we felt like we had constant support from trekking planner. Dipak (team leader) was very helpful and made the whole process very smooth and easy through his (and his teams) hard work.
Obviously a Nepalese run guiding company is going to be different from a western guiding company but for a locally run operation is was fantastic!
We ended up doing a modified version of the three passes loop (making it a few days shorter and missing the first pass because of illness) which they accommodated well including changing flights last minute.
Our guide Suman did a very good job and we would recommend him. He spoke great English and was very kind and helped us easily get through every potential obstacle that came up. My partner has food allergies and he would communicate those with the kitchen to modified dishes to ensure she was provided with food she could safely eat. Suman, though being young, was very confident and capable and we felt very safe in his hands. He knew the trail and surrounding area very well (including every peak and elevation) and what he was talking about!
We decided to do this trek guided because it was our first time visiting and trekking in Nepal and we were unsure what to expect including safety and logistics of trekking in Nepal. It provided us with the confidence to travel in Nepal and complete other treks unguided ( which is more our preferred style of travel)
We look back fondly on our trip with Trekking Planner and would recommend them to anyone who wants a stress free trekking holiday! Thank you to the whole Trekking Planner team 🙂
