1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The whole trip was amazing from start to finish, a truly unique experience.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Don't pack too much! Take a few snacks i.e cereal bars. Get visa for Nepal from London before going.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, it was lovely to stay in the villages and meet the people who were all so friendly and kind.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Ten out of ten. We felt very well looked after at all times, the walking was a challenge but there was no rush. Nepal is such a beautiful country and the people have very little but are so very happy and friendly.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Meeting the local villagers who were maintaining the guest houses and finding out about their daily lives. Walking between the villages so that we could see the different landscapes in the mid hills of Nepal, from rice and millet terraces to the high peaks that can be seen from Pasiban and Sailing.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

There is one day where you ascend 950m. It is a good idea to practice hill walking so that you can concentrate on the surroundings, not on your heart rate.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The trip definitely supports local people... this is the concept behind this tour company. We used this company last October in the Himalayas in India where the villagers were well trained in looking after the visitors. Nepal is a few years behind in experience looking after guests, but there is constant feedback from guests passed on to the 'manager' in Nepal and he is constantly working to improve any aspect of the provision that is needed.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very good. A great way to be introduced to trekking in Nepal whilst supporting the people of Nepal. Travelling around Nepal by road is rather tortuous, so that the 3-5 hour road trip to the start of the walks/treks is quick by Nepali standards! The hotels at the start (Dhulikhel) and end (Kathmandu) of the trip have been chosen well. I would definitely recommend the trip with this company to those who want to trek in Nepal but also wish to get involved with the villages. (The typical treks in Nepal like the Langtang, Annapurna and Everest Base camp generally are busy and not necessarily geared to learning about the local culture.)
