Trip Reviews

  • Amazing Annapurna Mardi Himal Trek!! mardi-Himal-Trek-with-Raj-Tamang
    We stumbled upon View Nepal treks & Expedition walking down the main strip in Thamel, Kathmandu, we couldn’t have asked for a better company to organize a Trek with. Their initial advice was friendly and informed with no expectation of booking. They made sure we were choosing the best Trek for us and our experience, not the one which made the company the most money. We really did not want a busy trek, there are many tourists doing Poon Hill and Annapurna base camp and we wanted to avoid this as much as possible. We also had a desire to bird watch and explore the forests of Nepal.
    The Mardi Himal trek was the perfect trek, we rarely saw other hikers, we spent three great days in Rhododendron forests in the foothills of the Himalayas and finished with two great alpine days above 3600m in waist deep snow. Our guide Prem was accommodating and made sure our every need was looked after.After Our 10 days, wild trek The owner Mr. Bhupendra offer a farewell dinner in Nepalese local restaurant with friendly talk. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking to do a trek with a family owned company, with over 15 years of experience. You will not be disappointed by the service provided by View Nepal Treks. Visited March 2016
