    Most amazing experience: Annapurna Base Camp Trek

    Rating:

    This trip had been 4 years in the making. had actually gotten to know Rajan and Dipendra through a friend's friend recommendation. I can only say that they are so patient with me over the years (yes years!) in the multiple failed attempts that I had to get myself to Nepal. Well, this year, it finally came true and with the trusty hands of Dipendra and my absolutely wonderful guide KK, I had the most amazing trip of my life! Dipendra made sure that anything and everything will go well, from the airport pick-ups to the hotel accommodation to the arrangements to be made during the trek. He was able and very willing to help me with my numerous changes along the way and I knew that all I needed was to ask and he will help me fulfill my requests. And then there is KK, my super guide. Right from day 1, he gave me the assurance and the feeling that I will be very well taken care of and he definitely did. Way above my expectations. When I just mentioned to him that I think I need a porter halfway while trekking, he found me one in 30 minutes! How amazing was that! KK always made sure that he's either walking beside me or behind me to make sure that I am ok all the way, even if I was slow, he very patiently waited for me. And then there's the trek. The most amazing country, landscapes and people. I've run out of words to explain but this is definitely a must-do for all travelers and of all ages. Thank you Scenic Nepal. Especially Dipendra, KK and Rajan. You guys are amazing!

    This is my first experience that I have to trek at high altitude during cold weather with a big group of lovely hiking/running friends, well, a great supports and substantive helps from Team of Scenic Nepal Treks is definitely needed in order to have a great pleasure and awesome memories with our friends.  There were plenty unpredicted events happened prior to and during treks, such as injury before trek, flight issues, altitude sickness etc. Without them, all of us were unable to finish our trek in such sweet memories and in “good piece”.  A lot of advises before trip from very responsive and patience, Dipendra. Everything were well planned and prepared upon our arrival, telephone sim-card, local currency exchange, photos for trek permits etc.  No complains from our lovely porters to carry our heavy belongings during treks, even offered immediately to carry all your personal bag when they saw you were tired.  A heartfelt thanks to my personal porter, Vimal always stand-by for me and followed me closely when I suffered my knee pain, and also Raj offered medical cream to me; Rajan and Raj offered immediately garlic/garlic soup to our trek friends when they hear altitude sickness from our team; Ramesh also made a lot of jokes to cheer us during trek. There are so many caring porters accompanied us to complete this uneasy task. The trip wouldn’t be so fun and safe without them too. There are too many grateful memories with them which I’m unable to finish all the sharing.  A big thank you to Team of Scenic Nepal Treks for their excellent services and keep us the good job. Fingers crossed and peace of mind if you trek with them.

    Best Team - 12 Days Annapurna Base Camp

    Rating:

    Travelled in a group of 18 from Malaysia for 12 days Annapurna Base Camp expedition. We managed to get a fantastic value package from Nepal Scenic Treks. Planning and preparation were easily done through WhatsApp with Dipendra who addressed queries from itinerary, accommodation, gears, finances, documentation. We had a meet and greet session when Dipendra flew to Malaysia and we managed to tailor the itinerary to our specification. From the warm welcome at Kathmandu airport and throughout the trek, our needs, requests and demands (especially concerning food and hot shower) were accommodated with speed and patience. A treasured experience trekking through the mountains immersed in the scenery and seeped in Nepalese culture; the beautific smiles and "Namaste". Thank you Dipendra, Rajan, Raj and the team of guide & porters at Scenic Nepal Treks for the hospitality, memories and friendship which extends beyond the trip. - Carol C
