    The tour organiser “Mr Sidhharth” is the most humble and awsum person I have ever come.across. He customised our day trek as per our needs. We were first timers to hiking and he helped us to get going. He provided all the useful information to help us be get set ready for the trip. The hiking was well planned and executed with the guide worth mentioning “Mr Santosh” made the hiking more exciting. He clicked beautiful pictures of us and never lost his patience as we were slow. Thanks EyesOnNepal for your awsum service. I will definitely plan my next trek with you. the best thing is they charge just for their efforts keep less profit!! 🙂

    Our guide Ram Subedi was the best guide we could think of. He was so friendly, knowledgeable, experienced, helpful, professional, caring…. and so funny. We had so
    much fun together!!!
    As my sister and I only had little time and as we are not very well trained, we decided to do the 2 days 1 night trek to Australian Camp.
    What an incredible experience, what a breathtaking view we had there.
    We had a great time, we saw extraordinary surroundings, and thanks to Ram we met many Nepali people in the villages.
    Thank you Ram!!!
