An amazing time had by all!!! Everything went smoothly and I could not recommend more highly both the company and Ratna the guide.
Having arrived in Nepal, first stop to book a trek. Friends of ours had visited in January and highly recommended " Nepal Environmental". We found the agency most informative and professional and booked a 6 day trek on the spot?????? ??????????????????????. To summarise, the scenery and trek was fantastic, the organization of it all, superb and our guide/ friend brilliant!
