Best Nepal Tour Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 1 reviews
  • I spent a week in Nepal with 2 other friends and explored Kathmandu and Pokhara. Was initially apprehensive about traveling to a relatively unfamiliar place. However, the entire experience was pleasant, enjoyable and worry-free thanks to the seamless arrangements made by Ram. The schedule provided by was well-thought through-we got to cover many of the must-see attractions without once feeling too rushed or bored. Also, the guides who accompanied us to the attractions were knowledgeable and engaging, giving us interesting insights into Nepalese history and culture. Especially enjoyed the time in Pokhara, where we got to see the beautiful lakes, woke up to a view of the Himalayan range and caught the sunrise at Sarangkot. Throughout the trip, Ram made sure we got to try the yummy local foods (even if it wasn't conveniently available) and made us feel welcome and at ease in Nepal by spending time over meals with us and making sure we were doing ok. He made it a point to talk through our itinerary with us, and worked around our needs and expectations. I'd look up Sublime trails the next time I'm back in Nepal, and would definitely recommend them if you're seeking for a fun, affordable, enjoyable and worry-free adventure in Nepal :)
