Me and my group went trekking with Ramesh, through Nepal Holidays Treks and Tours. We went Manaslu Trek as it was most popular trekking in Nepal with its divine beauty, amazing views and surroundings. As our guide Ramesh was always very helpful, we enjoyed his company during the trek. He was so kind and helpful. For him we were his first priorities all the time. Walking side by side with yaks and mule, the steep ups and downs, entering homes and sitting for a conversation with the locals of the village, and simple lunch with typical Nepali food was so amazing. We have never thought we could feel such comfort in the land of the towering beauties of a Himalayan. We had collected so many of memories in the trek, but that last day was the most beautiful among all. It was our last day on the lap of Manaslu, we gathered there for night camp fire with some drinks and roasted meat. It was so cold at that night, even though we had decided to spend our whole night under the blue sky with twinkling stars, and fireflies spreading everywhere. I had also collected some of those glowing fireflies in a bottle as well. Lastly, We found the services provided by The Nepal Holiday Treks and Tours so excellent. From our side Nepal as a trekking destination, Nepal Holiday Treks and Tours complete the meaning into reality, so we recommend this company for any kinds of adventurous activities.
I had an amazing time in Nepal! Maybe one of my most impressing travel experiences! I spent three weeks there together with my family and our guide Rajan. We did the Manaslu Circuit and the Tsum Valley Tour. The view of the mountains were incredible and almost impossible to put into words. I enjoyed every day and found so much peace in this amazing nature. For sure I want to come back and I’m looking forward for more trekking tours in the mountains. I can recommend it for everyone who loves the nature and to seek discomfort. It’s not about being the fastest and to complete the tour in as less days as possible, it’s about finding your pace and your own way through the mountains and valleys. I’m thankful that we could do the Trekking tour together with our guide, we had an amazing support and could learn a lot about this different and special place. All in all, I’m so glad that I have done this tour!
