What our customers say about us

Long Weekend in Nepal

We had a fantastic long weekend in Nepal with Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Ramesh and his team were amazing throughout and catered for our every need. We got a really personal tour even though we had a large group. We were provided with a variety of activities, with trekking, visiting temples and cultural sites and of course the Mount Everest Flight experience. I’d highly recommend Nepal Mountain Trekkers and look forward to returning possibly in the future!
