(5/5)

I came to Nepal, I went trekking and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Kathmandu Guesthouse recommended Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition to myself and they did not disappoint. My guide was extremely polite, patient and knowledgeable. I feel that this is extremely important when trekking in totally unfamiliar terrain. He contributed to my understanding or Nepali culture and to him I am extremely grateful.
To anyone who may read this I can confidently recommend Nepal Environmental Trekking.
