Me and my husband did a hiking trip from Dhulikhel to Nagarkot in  August 2017 . It was very easy to book and a good driver with a modern car took us from Kathmandu  to Dhulikhel and from Nagarkot to Kathmandu . Our guide Pradeep was a perfectly professional and friendly guide who not only guided us from Dhulikhel to Nagarkot but also knew a lot of things about the way of life in the area, agriculture , culture etc . With all this knowledge, his positive attitude and very good level of English we definitely got the best out of this trip. We strongly recommend Mission Himalaya Treks And Expeditions Pvt.Ltd and especially this prefect guide Pradeep for anyone who wants to do a short (or longer) hiking trip in Nepal! 

And lots of thanks to the owner of the company Mr.Birendra for organizing the fantastic and amazing trip to us.
