Testimonials

  • Review by a traveler from United Kingdom

    "If you're considering trekking in Nepal, then you won't find better than Birendra and his team. Throughout the whole experience we felt very 'held' by him and his assistants' skill, knowledge and expertise. Birendra has encyclopaedic knowledge of the Everest region, having been a guide there for seventeen years. And this level of experience also means that whilst everything is brilliantly organised, it was also very relaxed. Trekking in the Everest region is obviously an incredible experience in itself, but doing so with Birendra and his team took the experience to an amazing new level. Highly, highly recommended."

Thank You Birendra, we'll meet again surely :)"

    "I trekked to Annapurna base camp in February 2015. Thanks to my guide, Sonam, it turned out to be the best hiking in my life so far. He took care of the group very well and I felt very safe all the time. He showed us nature and had a really good knowledge about the area. I will highly recommend everyone that are thinking of hiking in Nepal with adventure club and expedition. Thanks for everything and good luck in the future."

    "Namaste. I spend 2 weeks in Nepal in October 2015. It was a very nice trip. To reach the ABC was our main goal. This trek was really fantastic - very well-organized with a helpful and very kind team. So Nam Ghale was our Nepal guide. This young man is an excellent person - helpful, kind, sunny, and friendly."

    "Birendra was recommended by my cousin who previously hired him and his team for trekking in Nepal. Probably there is nothing he doesn't know about Nepal and its activities. The guide assigned to me, So Nam, was also very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about trekking despite his age. It's a highly recommended team while you are in Nepal and planning to do some activities!"
