Long overdue EXCELLENT rating and review!

It has been almost 8 months since I returned from my once in a lifetime trip with Adventure Mission Nepal. After spending 3.5 weeks in Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan in April/May of 2017, I arrived home completely and utterly fulfilled, beyond grateful and wonderfully exhausted! As I reflect on my experience I must first acknowledge that it was all made possible by the patient, tireless, thoughtful, informative, flexible Raj - THANK YOU! From the bottom of my heart and the height of my expectations, your expertise, kindness, responsiveness, loyalty and patience is the reason my travel adventures were a success.

We worked together for over a year planning and adjusting my itinerary until it was just right. As a solo female traveler, you understood and met all of my unique needs and always made me feel valued and respected. When you took the time to greet me at the airport personally, I knew that all would be okay. Your team of guides and drivers made me feel exactly the same way. No request was too large or too small. The hotels, tours, education and hospitality were all top notch! Since I have been home I have tried to find the words to describe in this review how outstanding every minute of my experience was and how truly grateful I am. Instead, I give you, Raj, permission to share my name and contact information with anyone who is interested to know more about your company, your team or your services. I also hope to host you or any of the team that was so kind to me, in San Diego, CA one day. My life is a forever changed as a result of my Adventure Mission Nepal trip and the memories are a true gift. Thank you, thank you and I hope our paths cross again! Lisa

Tour of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet

We did extensive research of touring companies who offer tours of these countries before choosing this Nepalese-based operator. We are extremely happy with our decision. The money which we paid was very well-spent and we are gratified that the funds go entirely locally (as opposed to operators in the U.S. or U.K.). Also, Raj allocates a portion of the funds for charity work within Nepal. The experience was amazing!!! The Himalayas are unsurpassed in magnificence! A perfectly arranged tour of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Raj offers years of experience and expertise in arranging your tour as you would like to have it. He gives you personalized arrangements with meticulous attention to detail and is always available even when you are touring outside of Nepal (such as with unexpected illness etc.). The guides and drivers are top notch! We highly recommend Adventure Mission Nepal for either touring and/or trekking. If we were to visit that part of the world we would definitely use him again.

Lifetime experience of Nepal, Bhutan & Tibet tours in three Week

Me, my family & four others friends were planning a trip to Nepal Bhutan & Tibet since long time. Finally i came across the Adventure Mission Nepal Treks through online and started discussion about the trip. Sonika was so prompt and designed our needs in an organised way and at reasonable price. The beginning started from Kathmandu, then Bhutan and then Tibet and concluded our trip at Kathmandu. These 3 weeks went very smoothly. The guide was so well and provided us all sort of necessary belongings, knowledge about the trip and always looked after our ease and safety. I can't express my experience of the attachment of Bhutanese & Tibetan People, Culture and their smiley attitude . At the end we were so impressed by the expert-ism and dedication of your team that made our dream vacation colorful. I don't have enough words to thank you all.....

I would love to travel mt. Kailash next year as I said you during the dinner and also I would highly recommend to everyone to choose this agency for their professional service.
Thank you once again Sonika for being helpful and kind during those weeks.

Paramount Services...

We are really glad that we took the Himalayan Trekkers' Service. We were a group of 7 people who had a long vacation to spend over something exciting. And Himalayan Trekker had the best trip to offer... "Nepal Bhutan Tibet Tour". In those two weeks, their team had always been proactive about organizing all that was needed. We were able to experience the different cultures of different countries closely. It was all the way the best trip of our lives till now. We will surely join you guys on the next vacation and discover nature's beauty closely.
