Eveline & Ralph Eveline & RalphNetherland 5

7 days Helambu Circuit Trek. Starting in the Netherland we contact Chandra Gurung has been a very pleasant, clear, and responsible email. We did some research on the trekking we wanted to do, yet Chandra gave us good advice on the trip itself, the preparations on what to expect, and many other things besides the trekking.

From the moment we arrived we have been well-taken care of, pick up from the airport, good hotel, and shopping assistance for the trekking, we did 7 day Helambu Circuit Trek in 2015. Chandra has felt responsible for us before, during, and always checked whether everything was ok.

The trekking was great!!! Chandra Gurung is a professional guide; explains (in good English) all about the area, the people, the culture, etc. He is also a fun guy to have around friends, a guide that, we would strongly recommend!
