As soon as I landed trekking planner met me and took me to the hotel they booked for me. Every part of my trip was brilliantly organized from the pre trekking meal to the safari in Chitwan. Trekking planner organized everything at a great price and made my trip to Nepal unforgettable. We were unfortunate not to make it to EBC due to bad weather which can’t be helped but my trip was still worth it as they altered my trek back getting to visit different towns and enjoy the incredible views of the Himalayas. Big Thankyou to trekking planner for making my Nepal trip and for a great start to my solo travels.
We did the Everest Base Camp trek in April 2019 together with a safari in Chitwan National Park when we returned from trekking. The holiday exceeded expectations from start to finish. Dipak met us at the start and was a constant feature throughout. He was great, very quick to respond and an excellent organiser. The trek was fabulous (no issues whatsoever) and the safari was luxury! Dipak organised hotels in Kathmandu in between which were also of excellent quality. We have nothing bad to say. Excellent trip.
