I had a wonderful time with Shailesh in Nepal. Shailesh is the best tour guide that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. His knowledge and passion for his beautiful Himalayas of Nepal is infectious. He made what was already a great holiday, an amazing one. Not to mention that he’s just good people. Thanks for the memories Shailesh. I met you as a guest and left as a friend.

A great trip with an awesome guide and porters. I unfortunately got sick but was very well looked after when taken by a helicopter back to Kathmandu. It’s a physically, emotionally and mentally taxing trip but one that you will never forget.

Having done three treks throughout Annapurna & Everest Base Camp with Shailesh over the past two years, I can honestly say Nepal Trekking Routes are incredibly professional, very experienced and completely trustworthy. From the moment you arrive they will go above and beyond to ensure your adventure is not only safe but incredibly rewarding. Annapurna is a truly breathtaking trek that I loved so much I have done twice now. Shailesh also takes great pride in helping his home village and local school, so when you support Nepal Trekking Routes you also support his local community. Do yourself a favour and visit this amazing country and trust Shailesh and his team of experienced locals to ensure your visit is a wonderful experience that you will forever cherish. I look forward to coming back for my fourth trek soon.

Guys! If you plan on going to Nepal, please consider using my friend and guide Shailesh Pokharel. Work is hard to find and he is a fantastic guide, he helped me with a helicopter rescue when I fell very ill on Everest and took very good care of me all the way!
