Memorable Peak Summit with Nepal Guide

Firstly, we scared to choose Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition from online but the situation turned into 360 degree. I cannot imagine, what a wonderful peak climbing experience. One of the crucial parts of this company is, they have experience on peak climbing in Nepal, and they can give us more than other can do. They always provide always experienced mountain leader since our trip totally based on Climbing Guide. Definitely return back to Nepal soon…….. miss you all Nepalese people.

Everest tour & Lobuche Summit

Just returned back to home with lots of wonderful memories from Nepal. We got good service from Nepalese trekking agency more than our expectation. First we contact with outbound tour operator agency in our country then they told us the fact that they have good B2B relation with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We found them cost reliable according with service. 

If I go Nepal again, I will certainly use Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for better experience.

Lobuche Peak Climb & EBC Trek

After complete 6 times trekking experience, this year we did Lobuche East Peak Climbing in Nepal with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. I know, Nepal Guide Treks is experienced trekking and peak climbing based company and I am kinda fan of them. It’s our fortunate to complete and return back here before the earthquake. We complete our Nepal tour one day prior the devastating earthquake….. Very sad….. Ruined lots of things, feeling very sorry. 

I am sure I will go back soon Nepal to help Nepalese people; I am requesting Prakash Devkota to arrange volunteering opportunity over there.
