A fantastic trek made even better by our guide

(5/5)

 Everything before our trek was really well organised and we were warmly met at the airport. Our whole trip was amazing and it was made even better by the knowledge and experience of the staff at Eco Tourism. Our guide Domi was brilliant, he got to know each member of our group and remained extremely professional throughout. He is highly experienced and has good connections in the area and great knowledge about everything. Domi, Bibek and lhakpa were brilliant and I will definitely be going back to Nepal to trek with them again.
