Earlier this year I made my first trip to Nepal, I went with Mountain World Treks on the strength of a recommendation from someone I knew. They assured me that Saligram and his staff would put my welfare and wellbeing above everything else and they would do everything to make my trek a memorable trip. Everything they said was true, during my time in Nepal I was fantastically well looked after nothing was too much trouble, the numerous questions I had about the culture, wildlife and plants of Nepal were answered in full as the staff had good English. The tea houses we used were of a very good standard and Saligram's recommendations as to what to eat were always spot on, really important because if you're struggling to eat you won't enjoy the trekking. As a plus Saligram even organised sightseeing days in Kathmandu before thr trekking started. In conclusion if you're looking for a company to go trekking with in Nepal I doubt you will find better.[ Back ]
