  • Kathmandu to the mountains and beyond!

    Anil and his team had our trip organised from start to finish. Every part of our itinerary had been planned and all the details finalised for us. We booked the trip with very short notice and still we had a full guide to what we would be doing every day which was so helpful. Our trip was fantastic, we spent most of time on the Everest base camp route, including a helicopter tour of Everest, but we also had a sightseeing day in Kathmandu planned for us too. Unfortunately the weather is a bit unpredictable in Nepal but Anil and his team organised our days accordingly so that we were still able to cover the full itinerary despite the weather delays. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely be contacting the team again for our next trip!
