Customer Reviews

Today marks the final day of my 12 Day Nepal Adventure Trek, and it has been a magical, stunning, life changing experience to say the least. I've been so fortunate to experience this country and it's raw natural beauty and welcoming locals at the hands of a well-respected, well-organised travel company. Outfitters Nepal made this as easy as possible, from meeting us at the airport, to tracking down my hiking boots (which I smartly left on the bus before departing on the trek...), to wrapping up the experience with a lovely dinner with our guide and the tour organiser himself. I felt very safe, comfortable, and valued. The five day trek was easily the highlight of the trip - waking up in the mornings with giant, ice capped Himalayan mountains in the near distance was nothing short of breathtaking. We also really enjoyed the great insights we received on the City Tour and loved our afternoon experiencing the beauty of Pohkara. Overall I would encourage anyone considering doing this tour to do so immediately, it has done this amazing country a service by demonstrating its beauty so well and it's done a service to me personally by allowing me to live amongst it. Namaste xx
