We had the most amazing experience trekking with iTourNepal. We went in late November 2017 for a 5 nights trek through Poon Hill and ending up at The Australian Camp. We had the best guide possible. Saroj is extremely experienced, so full of wisdom and insight on his culture and the best storyteller ever. Our porter Prabin was full of joy and energy on the entire trek. We can't recommend Rabi highly enough and will definitely want him to organize our next trek in Nepal. Trek Reviews >
