Amazing trip

We were lucky enough to visit Nepal and Bhutan with Adventure Mission Nepal. Everything was very well organized. Guides were very knowledgeable and flexible. We arrived one day earlier than expected because of a change in flight, and schedule was immediately re-done last minute to fit one more day.
Organisation of the trip was very smooth, team answered our emails immediately, and everything was very tailor made for us. Once on site, Raj is very responsive and always available to supervise our trip and make sure all our requests are fulfilled.
I would recommend this agency vs any other, especially Western agencies, which are much more expensive, and eventually sub-contract to local agencies like Adventure Mission Nepal.
