    Dal bhat power, 24 hour

    Our first visit to Nepal has been incredible. We just returned from the 8 days Ghorepani trek and we still amazed at the beauty of the Nepali people and the nature that surrounds them. 
    Our guide Thakur and our porter Gopal exceeded our expectations, always making us laugh while ensuring our safety. 
    We are thankful to have met them and will return in the near future.

    Had an amazing time

    We went on the extended Ghorepani-Ghandruk trek and had an amazing time. 
    The guide (Hari Krishna) and porter (Krishna) were really excellent and made sure we are very well looked after!!!
    We were lucky with the weather and saw some mountains which took our breath away. We are extremely pleased with the Nepal Environmental Treks and Expedition agency for organizing such an enjoyable trip.
