Trip Reviews

Kapil was very kind and informative! He was brought to us via Safal at Success Adventure Treks in Kathmandu who organised it all. We were able to get a pretty good price due to it being the low season. Kapil handled all our requests along the way and had a positive attitude that added to the experience. We had a relatively large group of 9 to one guide and he made sure we were all catered for. Some of the group had struggles with being tired throughout the trek and yadu Kapil even managed to carry their bags along with his own on the way.
