    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 !!!

    Dil Gurung is a safe pair of hands. This summarizes what he does in a nutshell. He has fantastic emotional quotient and is attentive to detail and to every single member of his expedition client team. I would go back with him to the Nepali Himalayas any time. I would endorse him as an excellent guide for an international audience. It is great to see that his enterpreneurship has led him to set up his own outfit. His maturity and conscientiousness are remarkable.
