Great experience at times by going beyond the call of duty

(5/5)

Navaraj

I have just returned to the UK after my month's holiday and would like to take the opportunity to thank Nepal Environmental Trekking for an unforgettable trek. I thought the organization and execution of the trek was very professional and the level of teamwork between the 12 individuals was great to see. In particular I would like to comment on Dinesh's (the guide) contribution. He is very competent individual who demonstrated a great range of powerful and excellent skills. In particular, I was impressed by his general level of awareness and perceptiveness of your thoughts and concerns, and how he appeared to go out of his way to make us feel more comfortable. In addition he demonstrated good leadership skills in organizing the 11other happy and organized team! All in all he helped to make the trek a great experience at times by going beyond the call of duty.

In addition, we were amazed by the diverse range of foods that could be prepared in such remote conditions! our thanks to Pradeep for that. ………………………..

I will not hesitate to recommend Nepal Environmental trekking to my friends. Thank you once again.

Kind regards
