  • Jessica - March 14, 2019

    From the moment my friend and I landed in Kathmandu till the time we left, Dil and his team were outstanding and made us feel as part of their own families. We were picked up the airport and then Dil met with us to customise our trip and make sure we had all the gear we needed for our 5 day trek to Annapurna Base Camp. 

    On the trek our guide Tilak and porter/guide-in-training Anil made sure we lacked for nothing - pacing our trek, looking after our meals and accommodation, helping us when we had to cross glaciers, cross overflowing rivers and walk in pouring rain and hail. Thank you so much Tilak and Anil bai! 

    Hiking up at 3 am to see sunrise over the base camp was indescribable, even here Tilak and Anil made sure we didn't get altitude sickness and we had a spectacular experience without getting sick. 

    I loved every second of this trek and it was lovely to celebrate our accomplishment together with Dil, Tilak and Anil at the end. I would highly recommend Alpine Ramble - Dil and his team are highly experienced, thoughtful and really go out of their way to make sure your trekking experience is as successful and safe as possible!

    Just finished the ABC Trek along with Poonhill. Looking at the pictures, I am still amazed at the picturesque landscapes and the incredible times I had at the trek. All this goes to Dil and his team Saugat and Prashant. Dil made me feel really welcome in Nepal from day one and he was there whenever I needed any assistance before and during the trek. My guide Saugat made sure that I have an amazing experience and he took care of all the things I needed during the trek. I would totally recommend Alpine Ramble to anyone thinking of trekking in the Himalayas in Nepal.

    It was an impulsive decision to do ABC, without much training and experience. Luckily, i chose an extremely good tour company, Alpine Ramble, to help me achieve this bucketlist.
    Dil was very helpful in getting me briefed in KTM. And i was assigned a very attentive guide and porter team of Sujal & Nir. All my needs were taken care of and I could really focus on doing the hike.
    The ABC treks were themselves gorgeous. With Alpine Ramble team's prodding this treak was completed within 5 days.
    I must say that this is the best service that i have experienced with a tour company, and really make the trek very memorable. I would certainly love to come back and do another trek in beautiful Nepal.

    Namaste!

    For a while i have been planning my third visit to Nepal and was looking forward to doing the ABC trek, That's when i had come across a friend of mine who had recommended me to Alpine Ramble.

    Upon contacting Dil, CEO & founder of Alpine Ramble he was very quick with his replies and always at our service. He created a itinerary for us which fits perfectly to our schedule. Upon arrival in Kathmandu we was greeted by dil, along with Lakshman. 

    Over the next few days we had started the trek and was led by the men of the mountains the very experienced, qualified and well trained boys, Ceo/guide - Dil along with Porter/Guide - Lakshman. These boys knew exactly everything about the mountains. They where very informative, motivative, patience and always extremely supportive during the entire course. 

    Over all it was wonderful experience and i would highly recommend Alpine Ramble. 

    Quick Reply, Good Communication, Highly Supporting & Encouraging. A+++++ 

    Looking forward to are next adventure.

    Thanks & Best Wishes

    “It was Amazing service from the moment of booking. They contact you right away on WhatsApp and help with any question. Great package: includes everything from airport pick up and drop off, food, accommodation, guide, farewell dinner etc. Dil has organized a last-minute porter for us overnight. The guide Krishna and our porter Sujal both were great - informative and very helpful, friendly, humble and always joking. Managed to get us the nicest rooms along the trek with best views! We would highly recommend to anybody Alpine Ramble Treks for any trip in Nepal
