Budget Holiday Nepal Tour Review I landed in Nepal and volunteered for a week I was staying at Kathmandu Peace Guest house where Dipak organized someone to pick me up. Right from the start of my tour Dipak organized everything amazingly. I was initially worried about travelling as a young solo female but Dipak and his team made me feel extremely comfortable and well taken care of right through my entire trip. My guide Suman was extremely helpful, the most down to earth, thoughtful guide/ friend I made on my trip. I highly recommend him. Throughout my transit between Kathmandu to Chitwan to Lumbini I felt very taken care off. All the hotels and guest houses I stayed at were amazing along the way. The tours in Kathmandu, Chitwan and Lumbini to Pokhara were fantastic. Sadly, due to coronavirus I had to immediately cancel the last portion of my trip which included the trek to Poon Hill - Ghorepani. I just got to Pokhara and was scrambling to figure out a way back to Kathmandu asap for the next morning. My guide Suman was amazing, he made me feel at ease and guaranteed me a safe return. He was such a great friend. As I returned to Kathmandu Dipak promised to give me a 15% discount if I come back to Nepal and do a trek with them which I promised myself to do. Im definitely going to visit Nepal and finish my trek with Trekking Planner. Dipak was amazing he organized my stay at the hotel for the last few days and understanding the circumstances allowed me to spend a few more days and eat all meals with an airport drop off. I cannot stress to do your trip with this company enough. Im so glad I met Dipak and his team. I hope to see them again in the near future. It has been my greatest pleasure touring with Trekking Planner Nepal.
