  • Trekking Nepal

    “Great support on this trip Nepal Planet Treks !”
    I had incredible support on the EBC trek. First over e-mail from Sanjib to whom I asked many questions; then from NJ in the office when I started to get cold feet about the trip and she explained all of my options and the flexibility of the guides; and finally, and most importantly, from Vim , the main guide who stuck with me the entire trip, even though I was way behind everyone else, and gave me constant encouragement. It is really because of him that I made it. He made me feel welcome and belonging even though I worried all the time about my slowness. He was smart and funny as well.
    Thank you Sanjib and Nepal Planet Treks
    We are defiantly back to Nepal
