I decided to go with top1treking over the other companies. They are really quick in responding, give useful information before leaving (particularly for me, who is going for the first time), and provide exceptional service during the trip. I had an amazing trek and unforgettable experience. Warm hospitality! Great service. Cheer!

Amazing Mardi Himal Trip
I just came back from a trip to the Top1trekking Mardi trek. That was my first trek ever. I had a fantastic journey with Kurma and Bijaya, my guide/porter. They were incredibly kind and attentive at all times: food, health, and clothes... Honestly, I could not have done it without them. Yen and Ram always responded to my texts promptly, telling me what I should do. Next time I go on a trek in Nepal, I'll reach out to Top1trekking/Kurma/Bijaya. Thank you for an unforgettable experience. You guys are fantastic and thank you so much.
