Everest Best Trip

I am friend with Prakash Devkota since many years and I have been Nepal visit many times with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. Before meet with Prakash, we used to use another agency while being in Nepal but we avoid them and chose Nepal Guide because of his quality service, guaranteed departure, and reliable price as well as honest and experienced guides and so on. 

After a long time friendship with Prakash, I found a truth that he can provide service with very reliable cost is, Nepal Guide Treks’ has own 3 star hotel and restaurant at Thamel Kathmandu. 

Recently I did awesome trip of Jiri to Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar with excellent operation from Nepal Guide Treks.

Less beaten Everest Tour

We just returned home after spend one month holiday in Nepal. We heard from various news channels and online portals about Nepal is amazing Himalayan country and this time we got an opportunity to explore it. We met there my pen friend Prakash who have trekking and expedition business. We requested him to provide us Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar trek but we did not wanted to go from very crowed trekking trail, so he suggest me to choose less beaten path for EBC trek which is through Jiri. I found everything was good; the place gave me pleasure of heaven. 

I would always follow Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition again and again for Nepal tour.
