3 day trek - Chisapani to Nagarkot

24th November, 2019

A fantastic trip arranged in Kathmandu office and guided by Anmol. We had such a great time and Anmol made it all the more fun. It was my birthday whilst we were trekking and he made a special effort to find a cake and a candle to celebrate! His thoughtfulness and kindness really made this trip for me and I would absolutely recommend having him as your guide for not only this but also as he made us feel safe throughout the trip.
