I thought I'd done sufficient homework before I left the UK. Thought the choice of trekking agency would be easy but when I arrived in Kathmandu, there were hundreds of agencies to choose from, all offering pretty much the same. Then I found Rishi at Encounters Nepal.com. At last all the boxes ticked. All I wanted was a responsible agency that wasn't going to rip me off and would act on its claim of being an eco-tourism service provider! Encounters Nepal.com exceeded my expectations. I knew what I was getting, there were no hidden extras, my guide was informative and resourceful, he was insured and so was my porter! I was supplied with drinking water, which not only saved me a bundle of cash; I was delighted that I wasn't adding to Nepal's own Bottle Mountain! Most importantly, they were professional and I could trust them.
Trust me, book with them. I've booked for next year already
