Me and my boyfriend had a really nice Ghorepani Poon hill trip to Nepal this September and Nepal Tours arranged our trek very well. We stayed at nice teahouses, had nice food and saw lots of beautiful places. Padam, our tour guide, and Saila, our porter, did a really great job. They have got really good experience and always helped us throughout the trip. I really highly recommend Nepal Tours if you are going on a trip to Nepal!”

Magnificent views, snow that turned jungle into a Winter Wonderland, smashing sunrises, uncompromising sunsets, unmatched nightskies and a delicious feeling of satisfaction at the end of each day. Me and my family have ordered a full package with Nepal Tours. The Ghorepani trip was incredible for both me and my family. Mr. Kulendra is a professional bright agent with incredible knowledge of touristy Nepal and a unique skill to adapt to the client’s need.
