Booking with outdoor himalayan treks was one of the best decisions we did. Everything was so easy, from arrival in the airport to the day we left. Everything was organised for us and everyone was so accommodating. The trek itself exceeded our expectations. We got everything from pine trees, cactus, animals to those all encompassing snow capped mountains. The days were planned well and we had probably the best guide in Nepal. Rupak, was considered a friend after day one. He had us laughing and excited for the days ahead.
When an unexpected tragedy at home occured as we had to get back to Kathmandu for a flight home everyone was so quick to action and I was back in Kathmandu the next day.
I will be forever grateful for this trek!
