Had a great experience for 2 weeks. The team basically arrange most of complicated things for a first time hiker, including eating, living, transportation, etc. Very responsive whenever I had questions or needed help. Competitive price with great quality of service. Will choose this company again for sure if having a plan traveling around Nepal again! Highly recommended!
We travelled until Everest Base Camp with Shankar who was, by far, the best guide we ever dreamt to walk with on this occasion. His knowledge concerning the mountains isn't fake and his personality will make you understand how deeply kind he is. The trek was awesome, well handled and guided by him. We felt really safe, considered and we appreciated this feeling of being protected by someone you can rely on at any time. We spent good time together drinking tea, playing cards and laughing all the way long every end of the day. He always had the good pieces of advice, and always been really careful with us (It was the very first time ever my friend and me we were trekking). We had the opportunity to meet the whole staff of the company, and everyone is as friendly as Shankar. They all know their job, and not only work for money but to share their experiment, their knowledge, their feelings. To resume, please give it a shot, You will not be disappointed !
Fantastic experience from the off with this company. I was provided a Sherpa who met me from Lukla and straight away he was friendly, honest and kind and did everything on my behalf which was a shock! We had endless fun during the trek and the Sherpa would constantly feed me facts without asking as we progressed up the route abut different peaks, the heritage, the Nepalese culture and religious views which was very interesting to learn as it helped me immerse myself into the culture. At the end of every day we would stay at a tea house and again, the Sherpa would do all the arranging of accommodation and even put a menu in front of me and do all the food ordering from breakfast to dinner! The Sherpa provides more than just a tour for you, they are your doctor, teacher and friend and do everything they can to make your trip as enjoyable as possible for you! Highly recommend, thank you for the fantastic experience!
Had an amazing trek with scenic Nepal treks. As a single woman trekking for the first time Dipendra and his team were recommended by another solo female friend. From first contact I experienced a very kind, considerate and professional service. They listen to my requirements and after deciding I wanted to join with others the put I together with 3 other people that were a perfect fit. Our guide Shankar was incredibly knowledgeable and couldn’t do enough for us along with the porters, who never stopped smiling. I would definitely recommend Dipendra and his team for any of your trekking requirements. They add an incredible personal touch... Shanker even helped us on his day off to experience some of Kathmandu sights using the local bus.
My wife and I had an unbelievable experience trekking 12 days to Everest Base Camp (EBC) with Scenic Nepal Treks and Expedition! This company is truly the top professionals when looking for a company to book any trekking or sightseeing with in Nepal! Our guide Rajan was top notch and one of the most knowledgeable and professional guides on the planet with well over 100+ trips to EBC. From the beginning before we booked our trip with Scenic Nepal Treks, Dipendra was very responsive and professional in handling our booking. He was by far the most professional we have ever dealt with when booking any trip abroad and his English was absolutely perfect. His email replies were immediate, and he provided guidance and recommendations for every aspect of our trip by both email and phone. We had several special requests for the trip including setting up a surprise bday, and Dipendra took care of everything. The professional service and A+++ attitude began from Day 1, our guide Rajan was there at the airport to pick us up and greeted us with a sign when we landed (even though our flight was delayed 3 hours). We were transported to our hotel in Thamal and spent time going over our planned 12 day hike to EBC and gear list. Once we were on the trek to EBC, Rajan took care of us like no one else could. He adjusted trekking speed as needed and went out of his way to explain the Nepalese culture and the area. As I mentioned before, he has completed this trek well over 100+ times and is well known by all the Tea House's and other guides. Being this well known has its advantages, as you usually get the best rooms at Tea House's to enjoy the amazing views. We encountered a situation where it was the full moon festival (happens 1 time per year) at the Buddhist Monastery in Tengboche and all tea house rooms were being shared. Rajan took care of our bookings and we were given a private room with the best view of Mt Everest! Another example why it pays to book with the best! After the hike we celebrated with our staff and had a great experience. I wanted to add that Scenic Nepal Treks is not just for trekking, we booked a tour of the historic sites around Kathmandu and that was a highly recommended experience. Rajan & Dipendra personally handled every aspect of the trip and even accompanied us to the airport for our return flight to make sure we were taken care of 100% and see us off! Our trip to EBC was one the best experiences of our lives! I attribute that to the hard work, knowledge, and experience of our guide Rajan & Dipendra! Looking forward to coming back to Nepal for the Annapurna Circuit next year! Thanks again Scenic Nepal Treks for making our experience so great and gaining lifelong friends!
