    A great walk with Avi in Shivapuri National park

    I met Dipak and Avi today at short notice so I didn’t give them much time to prepare. I’m trekking shortly toward Everest base camp and dipak suggested I take a day trip to Shivapuri National Park. It’s only a short drive from Central Kathmandu But it is a world away from the hustle and bustle. Avi was the guide and he was fantastic. A great training walk. Avi was experienced knowledgeable supportive and very helpful. Dipak was extremely knowledgeable and I could see that Trekking Planner is a very well-run professional organization. Dipak has had a lot of contact with Australians and understands Aussies very well. highly recommended
