I ordered the Poon Hill trekking in this agency, the service and attitude are very nice. The boss(Nabin and Prabin) is so kind to share their trekking and sightseeing experience, and their guide(Shehadev) has large mout knowledge. I like it. Next time, I also like to order the other trekking tour in Himalayan Adobe travel agency. It’s really nice.

The service we received on our arrival and throughout our trip was well beyond what we were expecting. Nabin personally met us at the airport (and dropped us off) and throughout our trip he or one of his excellent staff were available to ensure we enjoyed our trip. Ganesh, our local guide in Kathmandu, was a thorough gentleman with a wealth of knowledge on just about everything. Rajendra, our trekking guide, was very accommodating and attended to our every need, and our porter, Sujan, was a fun member of our ‘team’. All these people gave us a great insight into life in Nepal and a cultural experience we will never forget. I have no hesitation in recommending Himalayan Adobe.

This time I traveled to Nepal alone for 12 days, and participated in the “Ghorepani (Poonhill Trek)” mountain walking trip for 5 days during the trip. The experience of these 5 days is definitely the best memory in Nepal. Most importantly, I still want to thank the travel agency owners Prabin and Nabin brothers for their consulting services before the trip and those few days, and the guide Bhuban for bringing me good feelings.

And the wonderful experience that my trekking guide, Bhuban, has brought me.

It was my first time going to Nepal and I and my friend booked a trekking tour for 5 days with Himalayan Abode Travels and Tours Treks and Expeditions in advance. The first day we arrived in Kathmandu, Nabin arranged a staff to pick us up at the hotel to his office. In addition to the detailed explanation of the trekking tour, Nabin also recommended us tourist spots in Kathmandu and showed us how to get those places with a free map provided. The trekking guide and porter they arranged for us were so friendly and helpful. We learnt a lot about Nepali culture after chatting with them on the way. And on the last day of our trip, we stayed in his office for hours writing postcards and he welcomed us and provided us with tea and pens. He also helped us arranged a taxi to airport for a cheap price and his brother also accompanied us to the airport. Their services were so excellent which made my trip in Nepal so convenient and wonderful. They were so nice for arranging everything for us, even some we didn’t expect before. Therefore I highly recommended Nabin and Himalayan Abode Travels and Tours Treks and Expeditions, which will offer you a memorable trip in Nepal.

We did a 10 days traveling including 5 days trekking with the arrangement by this agency. The arrangement is professional and very useful, all the hotel, guide, car, bus are arranged by them without any worry, the whole trip is well arranged with professional. They take care everything, even can wait for us in very later night since the bus is delayed, we do recommand if you want a easy trip in Nepal, they are the one can trust.
