Reviews

  • Serena Hussain - January 01, 2020

    First of all I would like to thank Dil for arranging this for my Dad and I. We have just returned from Nepal from a 15 day stay which includes a 12 day hike to EBC and Kalapattar.

    With the help of our guides Ayush (Dil’s younger brother) and Dika we were able to witness amazing scenery throughout the trip. We were truly blessed with clear blue sky’s and warm sunshine throughout the trek to EBC and Kalapattar

    We firstly summited Kalapattar then trekked to EBC just before sunset on the same day. This was an epic day for us and our guides. We were able to take some amazing photos and videos of EBC at sunset. Whilst walking back to Gorak Shep we were all able to witness the beautiful stars at EBC which will forever be embedded in our minds.

    Our package included breakfast, lunch and evening dinner plus tea breaks throughout. Our Guides Ayush and Dika throughly went above and beyond for us with providing good quality lodges along the way and even had en-suite facilities at three of these!

    We will always remember the hospitality from the people in Nepal and will cherish these in our memories forever!

    Thank you to Dil and his company for providing us a truly beautiful and amazing trip.

    Hoping to return to Nepal one day.

    I took the 12 day trek to Everest Base with a guide. We started off as strangers, but through the journey we became great friends. Along the journey our guide was very hospitable when we started our trek each morning at breakfast, when we stopped for lunch, and when we ended the day at tea-house for dinner. He made sure that our safety and our experience was his top priority. Since trekkers may get altitude sickness, our guide made sure we were feeling strong enough to continue throughout the day, so we had the highest success of reaching Everest Base Camp. Through his guidance our group was able to reach base camp without a problem.

    On our return, Alpine Ramble Treks greeted us and congratulated our group for completing the trek. Their welcome made us feel honored and happy to be part of their Mountain Family.

    I booked Alpine Ramble for my trek to Everest Base Camp and it was absolutely amazing. They picked me up at the airport and really cared about me. During the trek my guide Samir helped me whenever I felt tired or exhausted. We really enjoyed our time in the mountains with singing and dancing. The lodges where we stayed in were quite nice and the food was really good all the time. I learned about the culture and the mountains. The team was really friendly and it felt like family! I would definitely recommend Alpine Ramble for a trek in the Nepali mountains! You‘ll have a wonderful experience with a accommodating company, a good guide and a wonderful landscape. Thanks for everything !!!

    First of all I would like to thank Dil for arranging this for my Dad and I. We have just returned from Nepal from a 15 day stay which includes a 12 day hike to EBC and Kalapattar.

    With the help of our guides Ayush (Dil’s younger brother) and Dika we were able to witness amazing scenery throughout the trip. We were truly blessed with clear blue sky’s and warm sunshine throughout the trek to EBC and Kalapattar

    We firstly summited Kalapattar then trekked to EBC just before sunset on the same day. This was an epic day for us and our guides. We were able to take some amazing photos and videos of EBC at sunset. Whilst walking back to Gorak Shep we were all able to witness the beautiful stars at EBC which will forever be embedded in our minds.

    Our package included breakfast, lunch and evening dinner plus tea breaks throughout. Our Guides Ayush and Dika throughly went above and beyond for us with providing good quality lodges along the way and even had en-suite facilities at three of these!

    We will always remember the hospitality from the people in Nepal and will cherish these in our memories forever!

    Thank you to Dil and his company for providing us a truly beautiful and amazing trip.

    Hoping to return to Nepal one day.
