Best experience ever manaslu trek

10th November, 2022

I would like to thank my guide surya and company mountain eco trek.
Ram was very responsive and able to answer any questions I had before coming to Nepal. He made it very easy for me to book the trek.
We booked a trip to the Manaslu circuit, we were very happy to get a better service than we expected. Our guide Surya Tamang was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the mountains and the local area, and his advice on altitude sickness was very helpful. All our porters were very helpful, and Surya gave us a lot of information about the trek and the mountains during the trek.
He took very good care of us we checked our oxygen level every evening. He monitored our food daily so none of us got sick during the trip, he changed the itinerary according to our needs, which was perfect! He made our trip very easy. I would like to say that if anyone wants to visit Nepal, they should choose Mountain Eco Trek.
Finally, many thanks to guide Surya and Ram
Many regards

Best experience ever manaslu trek

10th November, 2022

I would like to thank my guide surya and company mountain eco trek.
Ram was very responsive and able to answer any questions I had before coming to Nepal. He made it very easy for me to book the trek.
We booked a trip to the Manaslu circuit, we were very happy to get a better service than we expected. Our guide Surya Tamang was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the mountains and the local area, and his advice on altitude sickness was very helpful. All our porters were very helpful, and Surya gave us a lot of information about the trek and the mountains during the trek.
He took very good care of us we checked our oxygen level every evening. He monitored our food daily so none of us got sick during the trip, he changed the itinerary according to our needs, which was perfect! He made our trip very easy. I would like to say that if anyone wants to visit Nepal, they should choose Mountain Eco Trek.
Finally, many thanks to guide Surya and Ram
Many regards
