Best tour agency so far in Nepal , Singapore

With Himalayan smile treks, we were able to have best and budget Everest base camp trek! This was my second visit in base camp and there were some changes than previous. We observed lowest part of Khumbu valley by mountain highway in four wheels. The best part was sightseeing and lifestyle of villagers around the journey till salleri. Luckily it was spring this time and we captured beautiful rhododendrons and mountain views from Dinbochay.

After the base camp, I wanted to surprise my wife on her birthday only few days away, so I added tour to Pokhara. We took her to Blue’s bar and the birthday well celebrated. She seemed to love Pokhara even now and we are missing those days. Thanks to Himalayan Smile for such arrangement to your prompt service. We’d definitely like to see you again, Dhanyabaad !
