We had an amazing trip to Kathmandu and Pokhara and really couldn’t recommend Surya and his team highly enough. Everything was so well organized but also very flexible and it was no problem for us to make a few changes to our itinerary during our trip. We will definitely be back to Nepal and will definitely be contacting Surya!
