We will recommend people to the Nepal Environmental

(5/5)

I wish to express my expectation for the case and concern our guide Uttam Pokharel has shown us while on our trek. He has been most helpful in many ways, firstly, by attending to our health by recommending good eating houses and restaurants.
Uttam was always aware of our fitness (or lack of fitness) and he knew exactly how much to push us when we needed a rest. He always took great delight in expressing us with special treats.
We would like to comment on our porter, Parshuram Panta, He was extremely pleasant at all the times on the journey. He is also very proud of his culture and religion and of the Nepalese Mountains. He would insist on pointing out special views as we walked along.
In conclusion, this trek has been one of the highlights of my life, one that I will never forget. We have no legislation in recommending Uttam Pokhrel as a guide to be trusted completely. He is our friend. And Panta could be recommended to all as the best porter. He is also our friend. We will recommend people to the Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition (P) Ltd.
