    Let us very enjoying this amazing travel.

  • cck199526

    Ramesh is a great guide offering professional assistance to my 18-days trip in EBC trekking. Although he was not my guide for my trip due to a clash with his university examination, he offered another experience guide and porter from his own company, and kept monitoring our situation throughout the whole trip. If you are looking for a Nepali guide who replied email promptly, spoke good English, had many local things and stories to share, and young, Ramesh should suit you!

    I had a great trekking experience to the Annupurna Base Camp with Ramesh and his team Deepak last February. Both Ramesh and Deepak are very experienced as trekking guide. They are so nice and are always willing to help.  With their guidance, the journey is really exciting and unforgettable. After the trip, we have become friends and keep in contact. I will be going to the Everest Base Camp with them in the coming year.
