You made my dream come true: EBC and 3 Passes

After summiting Kilimanjaro, I was looking for my next adventure. Thank you Adventure White Himalaya Treks, owner Ganesh and Guide, Keshab for a dream and bucket list item come true. From the communication prior to the Trek back in South Africa, to fetching me at the airport and transporting me to a great hotel . Superb and persistent service……and then of to Lukla Airport for the start of a 2 week journey. I did the Everest Base Camp and the 3 Passes.
I am typing this review on my Hotelbed back in Kathmandu with a huge smile and great satisfaction. A dream come true.
The whole journey was well planned and executed to perfection. This team is super professional.
Ganesh for leading this company and Keshab, my guide, was absolutely finominal.
I could not have asked for a better Team than Adventure White Himalaya Treks.
I give them a 10 out of 10 and would recommend them to any one or group interested trekking in the Himalayas to make your dream come true.

Dherei Dherei Dhanya Bhat to the team of Adventure White Himalaya Treks in Katmandu.

Now I can fly back home with an unforgettable experience.

Annapurna circuit trek with Adventure White Himalaya Treks: Greatest Experience

Adventure White Himalaya Trek in one word is superb ! Upfront communication with Ganesh was very efficient and the trek went very well. Mr Ganesh receive me at the airport took me safe at the hotel at midnight. The day next we started the trek, our guide Bhoj Raj was a star. He was trustworthy, reliable and always smiling with a great sense of humors.
They all were excellent and was perfect in organizing any sort of tour in a perfect way. I can wholeheartedly recommend them, the Adventure White Himalaya Treks. Thank you !

Amazing life experience!

Trekking for 4 days in a rhododendron forest, waking up to fresh snow and the sunrise at Poon Hill, amazing adventure!!!! I will go back, I will most definitely contact Ganesh to schedule another adventure in the Nepal. He is a hard worker with great knowledge of the area.

Excellent Service

We dealt with Ganesh before the trip and are very happy with the service provided. Everything was as promised.

Our guide, Hari, did an excellent job in planning our whole journey and improvising wherever he saw fit. He also was very in tuned with our fitness level and we didn’t feel that we were pushed beyond our capabilities.

Our porter, Gopi, was also very helpful especially in keeping our spirits up during the whole journey.

All in all I would highly recommend Adventure White Himalaya Treks Pvt Ltd to anyone who is going trekking in Nepal.
