My friend and I travelled to Nepal and Bhutan in April/May 2018. I contacted Ram a couple of weeks before going as I wanted some help in planning my trip and advice on where to go.
Ram was extremely helpful and available to answer all of my questions, in the end he helped me and my friend organise our whole trip to Bhutan (which I highly recommend!!) and also our hiking in the Annapurnas as well as paragliding in Pokhara.
When we got to Kathmandu Ram and his wife were lovely and took us out for dinner, they did everything to make us feel welcome and I must say they made us feel part of the commnunity in Nepal.
I felt comfortable throughout my whole trip there as Ram was our go to contact in Nepal, answering any doubts we had. There are hundreds of people who will try and offer you things, but with Ram you know you’ll be getting highest quality and exceptional service.
During our trip we did the following
– Pokhara (1 night)
– Hike to Poon Hill (3 days, 2 nights) – I really recommend this, Poon Hill is a beautiful hike and you don\’t need to be overly fit for it.
– Pokhara (2 nights)
– Bhutan (Paro and Thimpu, 2 days 2 nights)
– Chitwan (2.5 days, 2 nights)
– Kathmandu (3 days, 3 nights)
We loved our trip and Ram and Sassana were a huge part of it.
