Bardia Tour + Fishing @ Babai & Ghorepani Trek
Ghorepani Poonhill Trekking

Me and one of my friend did have great experience of tour in Nepal with Pradip and his company Adventure Mountain Nepal. I found the company via online search, got a chance to talk with Pradip, he always did me prompt response of my query with really satisfied answers. Finally we did 6 days Bardia tour, my friend did not have sufficient time to go for trek so I went solo, but not alone – always with a special care of Pradip and my porter Sameer.

Everything of my tour were well managed,,, would like to thank all. I will definitely go Nepal again and off course with Adventure Mountain Nepal. Highly recommended the company…!!!!

Namaste….!!!!

Masaaki & Friend.
