Best memorable trek in Ghandruk Loop with Sarankot.

I booked the trek and tour from mission Himalaya treks, Birendra. He was highly recommended by my friend in Hongkong. He is one of the best trekking guides I have met in Nepal. He took care of everything and made sure the rooms were reserved for me during high season. I trekked in mid-October, which is the best season with the best weather. there was fresh air in the mountains. I slept early, woke up early and trekked every day. I was renewed spiritually and physically after the trek. I was lucky to see the snow-capped mountains and golden fields in the trek.  Birendra also arranged a school for me to volunteer and homestay in her parents' home in Gorkha for three weeks. It has changed my life. I saw how the villagers and students enjoyed their lives though they had little and many houses there had collapsed. life was not easy. the people loved their families and kids. They met their friends every day. I was the only foreigner there. Everyone was friendly and treated me nicely. I stayed in a house which was originally for the goats and buffalo because the house they lived had collapsed during the earthquake. 
I was lucky to experience the second biggest festival in Nepal, Tihar. It was a colorful and joyful festival. People in traditional costumes danced in the streets. They put the colorful rangoli at the doorways. I enjoyed it so much. I am grateful to Birendra. He has arranged a life-changing trip for me. I fell in love with Nepal and extended my stay from 6 weeks to 5 months. I love its scenery, food, festivals, music, dance, costumes, especially its people. They are the most peaceful and happiest people I have seen. It is my favorite country and second home. 
Birendra is kind, funny, caring, loving, professional n experienced. I had a safe, enjoyable n memorable time in the trek. I was well taken care of by him during the trek. He arranged the trek, volunteer work, and homestay well. You can trust him. I recommend him to everyone.

Professional guide amazing trip.

We booked our first trip to Nepal through Mission Himalaya Treks and Expeditions PVT LTD. The hiking experience was joyful from beginning to the end. Shyam and his team took very good care for us. He explained each and every one of our questions. In Kathmandu, Birendra meets us at the airport. Then he hosted us for 3 days Pokhara trekking to Dhampus Sarankot and 1-day rafting to the Trisuli River. Everything was well organized Knowledgeable and respectful. The short trek itself was best because of the nice lodges and the food was very tasty. I will give 5 stars for this company and their entire team. Wow, Nepal river rafting.

Pokhara Easy Trekking.
