What our customers say about us

Friendly and helpful, I had a great time!

Very helpful and informative in helping me book the right trek . I only did a short trek . Shivapuri, Chisapani, Nagarkot and Changunanrayan. It was the perfect trek for my short trip. Nice to get out of the city and see how people live. Very peaceful and relaxing walking all day. My guide was great. My only regret is not planning a longer trip and being able to do more trekking. But now I know where to go next time and will definitely use NMT again. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Thanks so much and see you next year
