    BEST GUIDE IN NEPAL

    Our time with Nirmal was just the best! He Is very knowledgeable about his country and all of the trekking. His laugh is infectious, he really does make everyday so enjoyable. Nirmal speaks very good English and the trips he organised are 12 days long which is a perfect amount of time to be on the road! I cannot recommend using Nirmal as your guide enough! Thank you for making our Himalayan dream come true Nirmal, you're the best!

    Good guide and knowledgeable

    I did Everest Base Camp and my friend recommended Nirmal who has been a guide for years. He loves to talk and will make sure laugh all the way which will make the journey interesting and enjoyable. The accommodations on the trek are basic but good. You can speak to them about altitude sickness in case you need any help. Would definitely recommend.

    All Himalayan Treks

    I travelled to Nepal on my own and as an older woman approaching 60, I was hoping to join a group when I got there. As time ran out without success, I decided to trek solo with a guide. Nirmal was recommended to me and he was great. He looked after me very well. He organised all the accommodation and food. He was happy to go at my pace, stop and rest when I wanted to, and answer all my questions about the sights and smells around us. He carried my bag, allowing me to walk with a day pack and two hiking sticks to keep my balance as we navigated the mountain tracks. He was very caring and I felt totally safe with him. He took great photos of me with my camera, which provide me with happy memories.In addition to the time spent together on the track, he also showed me around Pokhara, taking me shopping and to visit cultural sights. I had a wonderful time with him and would highly recommend him.
