it was amazing

Anonymous At 2018-10-30 10:04:00

“Overall it was amazing, suman our guide was extremely nice and always willing to help , This trip would have bee the same without him. My only comments is that I think that in the coming back journey should be added an extra day, as we did in half of the time as what we dos going up, and it’s definitely to force. But overall great”

OUTSTANDING OUTFITTER! Date of experience: October 2018

Santa Ana - California At 2019-02-10 23:43:00

This was our fourth trek to Nepal - and Exciting Nepal turned out to be the best-organized outfitter we have ever had. In researching, I was attracted to the wide range of activities they provide - from trekking, to safaris, to technical climbing. After the first e-mail, what impressed me the most was the fact that Subash, the owner, personally answered all my questions within hours of my emails. His reassuring tone helped relieve much of the pre-trip anxiety. The guide and porters that he selected met and exceeded our expectations, and turned out to be excellent travel companions, going way above and beyond the call of duty. The hotels Subash chose for us were superb, by Kumbu standards. It was clear that Subash has established a wide network of service providers that make it possible for him to offer the best of the best for his clients. The final touch was when we found out that he had told our guide to do "whatever it takes" to enable us to achieve the second part of our goal - crossing the challenging Cho-La pass at 17,700ft. He was not going to accept a failure. They did. And we did. Thank you, Subash for an amazing experience.

We booked our Everest base camp trek after few email corresponding with Mr Subash from Exciting Nepal treks. Not only with Our reply were always quick with honest answers but also offered us a good price for our trek with a guide and Porter (Porter was from Lukla ) We were lucky by the effort of the company, the fight was not cancelled not even delay to Lukla and Kathmandu was the first flight, Kathmandu –Lukla –Kathmandu. Our guide was Suman and Porter was Milan, during our 12 days trek our guide Suman was always very honest on his job. Great caring for our accommodations and food. Helping us each moment, He even carry some of the weight of Porter some days if the Porter Milan was a very smiley person and always happy, a very hard working man, In the Gorekshep we had some problem of a headache, Suman had all medicine for normal treatment with Oxygen and pulse checker erumpent from Exciting Nepal so it was just perfect. We climbed to the Kalapatthar, had a great view of the Mt. Everest and explore the Mt. Everest base camp. We recommend this company those who are looking for an adventure trek to Nepal. Thank you.
