Had a blast with Base Camp Adventure!

Namaste everyone! I made 2 treks last june (one in the Langtang, the Gosaikunda trek and the other one in the Annapurna region the Ghorepani- Poon hill trek) and visited the Chitwan national park with Base Camp adventure and I really don't regret it. Shree, the tour operator organized everything as I wished and was full of good advices as I never went on a trek before and made everything very easy for me. And the guide, Raj, was also really nice, patient as I was never on a trek before, and made me feel very comfortable. I had only to enjoy the wonderful sceneries! I can only warmly recommand this agency very serious and professionnal! Dorothée
