Nepal Trekking Tourism and Adventure provided us best trekking service, we joined this company in Kathmandu, Pasang sherpa is best to response your queries so quickly. he is very attentive and informative in e-mail as well as WhatsApp communications. He gave all answers to our questions before we plan a perfect trek with him. The Female guide Dolma sherpa is very professional guide and taught us many things about Nepalese cultures and religions. Our porter Ram is excellent and a genuine person. Despite of very cold in January, we had great weather at top of Poon hill and we saw all the mountains. the lodges are perfect in trek and we had great homestay accommodation in Kathmandu which is beautiful house of Pasang and his family- sherpa sweet home, we had great time with their family in their house. overall we had a perfect 10 days in Nepal with my wife. we like to join pasang and his company Nepal trekking tourism again for another great trek in Nepal soon.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking- one of the short and best trek ever!!
We recently been to Nepal with Nepal Trekking Tourism & Adventure and did the short trek in Annapurna. Since we don't have a much longer holiday, pasang customized Ghorepani poonhill trek within our timeframe and it happened a great trip. we took domestic flight Pokhara and back to Kathmandu as suggested by him since a road trip to Pokhara is too long and we have a short time. guide Chandra Rai is fantastic and porter Ngima is so nice, we had a great 5 days in Annapurna trail, the morning sunrise views from the top of Poonhill is amazing, that was the main highlight of the trip.
Hotel in Kathmandu, Pokhara is best, foods and lodge during trek is nice. Airport picks up with the perfect designed banner with our name on it. In fact, this is one of short and best trek of my life. we are fully satisfied with the quality of high-level service maintained by NETTA and if we visit Nepal again, we use them for sure.
Thanks, pasang, and Team for their best care, you guys are fantastic!!
