Everest View Trek Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 2 reviews

If you ware looking to have a fun time with your friends and family while trekking in Nepal then look no further than Sublime trails. Nepal is comparatively safer than many other places I have travelled but still, you have to bo careful on your part. If you end up with a less experienced or rude people to plan your holidays, it will be all ruined. That's why I did all my research and talked to ram several times asking him questions about lot of things. But, he was polite and answered all of them. I decided to travel with them after contacting few of other companies who were either too expensive or not enough caring. When I remmeber my trip to Nepal, I can't help but wonder if it would be the same if I had travelled alone or just chosen things carelessly.

We went on a day tour with a guide from Sublime and it was a great day! The guide had a way to make each point interesting and relatable. I actually retained information from this tour instead of just having old buildings pointed out. Highly recommended!
