    I have just finished EBC 12 day treck. What an epic adventure!
    Dil was very helpful in organising the trip and answered all my endless questions. When I got to Kathmandu he went above and beyond to make sure that trip was successful. I have already passed Alpine Rumble contacts to my friends who are considering trecking in Nepal.
    Thank you Dil!

    Great experience with Alpine Ramble, the company owner Dil and our guide Dilman were both very friendly and helpful. They made sure that our stay in Kathmandu before and after the trek was comfortable, and our request to change the hotel booking to a place closer to thamel district was satisfied immediately. During the trek, Dilman was making sure that we were feeling well on a daily basis and briefing us on the plan for the next day. He even managed, upon our request to be back in Lukla asap, to skip two rest days from our schedule without exhausting us physically.

    Dil is an incredible guide with such attention to detail and focus on making your experience as comfortable and amazing as possible. Great for a good conversation and experienced enough to handle any situation. I've trekked with Dil a number of times and now consider him part of my Nepali family!

    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.
