It was already my another trek organized by Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Since arriving in Kathmandu we felt well taken care of, we had a shuttle service to the hotel. We stayed at Horizon Hotel, quiet and beautiful place for Thamel. When we sightseeing Kathmandu, everything was prepared to trek (permits, transport etc). This time our guide was Shiva who is profesional guide with a wealth of local knowledge. We could "only" enjoy our trip as we were sure that everything was well organized. I would definitely recommend Nepal Mountain Trekkers with frendly pofessional owner Ramesh Dhakal and wonderful guide Shiva and Daljit. Thank you so much Ramesh, Shiva, Daljit, Devaraj, Dhane, Sudip, Arjun. Hope to see you again ... soon :)

In november 2015 we met Mr. Ramesh Dhakal and our guide Daljit at the Horizon Hotel in Thamel Kathmandu. They are very friendly persons, like friends and we went on tour with Daljit and my husband, so we were three of us. We were 3 weeks on tour and had a great time with our guide. The lodges and whole trip was very good organized and with Daljit we had the advantage to learn a lot about Nepal and the Nepali's. We went in the houses, enjoyed family life and he showed us the most beautiful spots.We can recommend this organisation 110%. Enjoy!
