Excellent Trip in Nepal – Pikey Peak Trek

Bashu coordinated a city guide for four UNESCO sites as well as a 7-day Pikey Peak trek in a professional manner. Both trips were excellent. I wished for better weather on the trek, but still had an amazing time meeting many different people along the tea house trek.

My only complaint would be having gone off the trail twice which lead our group down and up some pretty steep as well as challenging trekking conditions. We did always find our way to our destinations, yet more planning, trail marking, or guide mapping would have been appreciated.

I am happy with Nepal Footprint services and think the pricing was fair compared to other online companies.
