Fabulous Trek Manaslu Three Passes

December 5, 2019

Madan organized a 30 day trek for me and my friends through the Manaslu, Tsum Valley and Annapurna trekking routes. It was a fabulous trek. This was the third time we have used Touch the Himalaya Treks and Expedition services and as was the case previously, he made sure everything went extremely well. He picked us up at the airport and host us at hotel in Kathmandu, arranged our fabulous guide Arjun and the porter, everything was extremely smooth. The way Madan communicate with us during our preplanning phase and made sure that our schedule will achieve our objective which was great. He managed all the requirements needed for us and end result was that despite our ambitious itinerary we achieved our objectives and had a fantastic experience. Madan and his team are highly experienced, reliable, honest and flexible. Our guide, Arjun was simply the best, and made incredible efforts to make our trip successful.
I would highly recommend for a great experience with an outstanding company, Touch the Himalaya Treks and Expedition for treks in Nepal. You will satisfy with the service they provide.
