What a wonderful experience

From: Switzerland | On: 23 May, 2018

Nepal is such a beauty. We had a really good trek which has made me feel healthier and refreshed. One of the things that I really loved during my trip is the lakeside of Pokhara. Resting alongside the lake is really a healing experience physically and spiritually.


Our trek to Ghorepani was an ultimate success, thanks to the professional guides from CoreTreks. Without them it would be impossible to accomplish this achievement of a lifetime.

I found transportation system in Nepal a little bit congested but the people in Nepal are really helpful and cheerful. They inspired me to be selfless in this selfish world.

Once again, thanks CoreTreks for planning and guiding us through the trials of the country towards Ghorepani. I highly recommend that you book your trip via this company. They will not disappoint you, for sure.
