    I was recommended to contact Mohan by some friends who had done a few treks with North Nepal agency and I’m really happy I did so because from the first time I contacted him, he has been attentive, kind and demonstrated a high sense of customer care, accommodating my needs and adjusting the plans even with short notice!
    I’m also very very happy and satisfied with the guide assigned to us! Niraj was this incredible young boy full of energy and always willing to explain the local traditions, clarify all the questions and solve any requests we might have. He has been an incredible company during the time we spent in Pokhara and in the 3-day PoonHill trek!
    Would definitely recommend these guys to everyone looking to spend some hassle free time in Nepal!!!
    Namaste!!

    Very professional company
    This team is awesome! from the first e-mails with the boss Mohan, i knew i was in good hands for my trek! I did the Poon hill one and it was truly awesome!
    My guide Bipin was really friendly, knowledgable, and made sure I had everything I needed, at all times.
    The accomodations were good and the food as well!

    After this trek, because of their great service, I booked a Safari to Chitwan with the agency! it was a lot of fun too!

    So, thanks Mohan and the team, I highly recommend!!
