    After calling into a few tour operators offices in Kathmandu, Siddartha was the first one to listen to what we were actually interested in rather than listing off trek itineraries. Great value for money, excellent customer service, & even lent us some trekking equipment free of charge. Ghattaraj, our guide, was very experienced & our safety was his top priority in unpredictable winter February weather. He was always flexible with our plans, which meant when we wanted to wait out bad weather in teahouses to enjoy the views after clouds had passed it was no problem (he was also very patient with our endless snack stops & snowman building!) Other groups had to stick to schedules & put in days of difficult trekking without seeing the amazing sights which our photos show!

    A huge dhanyabaad from Clodagh & Julie! We highly recommend you guys

    Amazing trip- great company that go willout of there way to make everything perfect
    We dealt with Angie and Siddhartha in organizing our trek who were a great help. when we arrived they went well out of there way to make sure everything went as smooth as possible. we did the Gosaikunda trek which was really hard for our first trek but very rewarding once was we made it across the finish line. A big part in us finishing was due to tour guide Deep what a great bloke, one of the most humble and nice people I have ever come across. did everything he could to make sure we always felt safe and were having as much much as possible along the way. if are planing a trek ask for Deep and Snickers they make a great team and you’ll have a blast.
