Review -

This was my third trip and first trip of friends has used Adventure Discovery Treks and the services just gets better and better each time. We treks to Everest Base Camp and everything from starting to ending was perfectly arranged. From pick up at airport to hotel transfers to trekking and equipments

Rabi, Guide Gopal and the rest entire team did an excellent job. Our Guide is now a very close friend his outstanding information of the area, the trek and just to playing cards with him on a night, Nothing is trouble and offered a much inside in to Nepali life when you actually eat together and socialize together rather than the Guide felling not part of the team.

Would definitely use Adventure Discovery again without hesitation, It’s my 4the trip to Nepal in 4 years so no doubt will back again soon for adventure.
