Client Reviews

  • A professional travel company with a fantastic personal touch.

    The trip to Everest Base Camp, with a very good friend of mine, was remarkably well run by Hemanta and his team. The trip was filled with special moments - professionally organised and always flexible and adaptable to our travel needs. For instance on our arrival day we had a bit of spare time so Hemanta organised a personal guide to take us on a tour of wonderful Kathmandu. On the day we were due to fly to Lukla the weather closed in so our guide Dill was the first to react and quickly organised a helicopter to take us to our destination - so no time was eventually lost on our trek. This marvelous attention to detail followed us throughout the entire trip - and always done with a personal touch from all members of the team. I would recommend Nepal Highland Treks to any traveller who is looking to explore this region.
