Reviews

It was a great trip!  Deepak took very good care of us throughout the trip. We reached Khopra Danda and descended to Tatopani instead of goging to the lake. Too tough for the girls.. we wanted to rest… the view at khopra was better than the lake? So not really worthy to spend 11 hours up to the lake! Was good that we went down and gain an extra day! It rained on most afternoons. Deepak kindly offered us homestay at his place for the extra day at Kathmandu ?? It was a great experience! Khopra is beautiful but the trek is definitely not easy. Deepak paced us according to our fitness and ability, We have ample rest throughout. He even saved the girls! He is someone whom can be rely on. We felt lucky, blessed and honoured to have such a great guide!
