12 days at Nepal (Poonhill Trek)
Hi all, we engaged Exciting Nepal for their services for our Poonhill Trek. Trek can be customised depending on the total amount of days you will be staying for at Nepal.
Planning, engagement, replying frequency and rates were awesome from Exciting Nepal. I found a huge number of agencies and asked for a quotation and Exciting Nepal gave the fastest replies and also the best rate which was very value for money.
All in all, we had a great time at Nepal with Exciting Nepal. We will engage them again if we are back for other treks! 🙂 If you have interest for other types of itenrary, do enquire from them. You will not be dissapointed!
Life time Experience
Subash has been very helpful in multiple ways:
1) always responsive and attentive to our enquires. Frankly speaking before we started we had no idea how different these various travel agents are, but comparing the answers we can quickly tell Subach is the kind that truly care clients’ experience
2) actively seeking solutions for issues encountered during the trip. We originally got second flight to Lukla however weather wasn’t good and Lukla airport was closed. We were quite frustrated as the weather on day 2 wasn’t promising either. Subash got us a) third flight on Day 2 + b) helicopter as backup. In the end we flew to Lukla by heli and we were the very few tourists flew over that day (enjoyed the very quiet trekking as well)
Basu is our guide throughout the trip. He is energetic, attentive, experienced and very pleasant to walk along with.
1) Basu is flexible, meaning he tries to bring about the best experience to his customers without sticking strictly to the original plan. During our trecking, multiple issues happened including flight change and sickness etc and he was able to adjust our schedule accordingly (and also fully listens to what we want)
2) Basu could come up with ways (that seems to me innovative and don’t see others adopting). For instance I god a bad cold and was very weak to walk the way to Pheriche and Basu got me a horse! When I got health checkup in the Pheriche hospital (without wasting energy climbing for 2 hours), I recovered much faster
We appreciate excellent arrangement made by Subash and enjoyed very much the accompany of Basu (together with our porters). We would definitely recommend Exciting Nepal to anyone who would be interested in selecting a travel agency while in Nepal
Annapurna Base camp
From pick up to drop off we had a spectacular time! Our guide was as good as it gets. We emailed Exciting Nepal and got a great response time on all of our questions. This company will truly go out of their way to make sure everything it perfect. Not if, but when, we come back to Nepal, we will for sure use them again!
Langtang trek from Kathmandu to Kathmandu
We booked our 7 days trek to Langtang with this company. Actually we booked our private trip but Exciting Nepal had another couple for the same date for the same trek. They took permission with us if the trek can be combined together. The benefits of combined trip was that they will provide us a private Jeep to Sybrubesi instead of Local bus with the same cost because of being four people in the group. We had one guide and two porters, one Porter for us and one porter for another couple. Our guide Ram was very professional and easy going. Communicating with him was very easy and he was a very knowledgeable person. One of our porters would go further to book a lodge for us always. The trek was memorable and we really appreciate the effort of Exciting Nepal team. Thanks to our Our guide Ram and our porters maila and siva. Great job guys! we will definitely recommend you and your company to other fellow trekkers who would like to make Nepal as their trekking destination.
Really helpful and easygoing company
We booked The poon hill trek and Chitwan tour with this company. The trip started from Kathmandu. We had a bus trip to Pokhara with our guide. We spent one night in Pokhara and next morning we started our trip to Poon hill. The first day of the trek was easy but the second day was bit hard for us to climb up to Ghorepani. We had a nice view from Poon hill on the third day. We really enjoyed the village Ghandrung. We really liked this village and we stayed one more night at Ghandrung. We asked Mr. Subash, the company owner, that instead of 4 nights in the mountain, if we could spend 5 nights (one night extra at Ghandrung ). He just commanded his guide to follow what we wanted meaning allowing one more night stay at Ghandrung. Actually our Guide Ramesh was also very happy to work for us.
When we came down to Pokhara, we came to know that there was some road disturbances from Pokhara to Chitwan national park. Therefore we had to skip our trip to this National park. However, The trip money was already paid and the hotel in the national park was already booked. We had to call Mr. Subash again in this matter and he replied us saying – “please stay as long as you want in Pokhara and lets meet at Kathmandu, You do have a key of your holiday so make your own plan, I am here to help you in any matter, please no worries .With my service I will definitely make you happy.” Hearing this, We stayed one more extra day in Pokhara.
We came back to Kathmandu and Mr. Subash was waiting for us at the hotel. Surprisingly, without any question, he fully refunded our money that was paid for the National park trip. He also offered us a dinner together for the same evening near by the hotel. ‘What a hospitality, what a service , what a customer care.’ We will never forget your service and definitely come back for the Everest Base camp trek with you people soon.
Thanks and Take care.
