    I am very grateful to have found Alpine Ramble team to arrange this trek for me. Dil has been in touch with me before and during my stay in Nepal. I never have to worry about anything from the time i landed Kathmandu. They treated me as family and made me feel safe and taken care of. When I didn’t felt good in the middle of the night, Dil came rushing and brought me to hospital to make sure I am okay before the trekking without any cost.The team will extend way above beyond what a regular tour agency can offer and I would definitely recommend this team especially if you are a solo traveller. They will not hard sell and take advantage but they will only recommend you some options based on their expertise.

    The team is also flexible and understandable. My guide Krishna and porter Lucas are my brothers during the trek and they have arranged the best logging and let me choose which food I want to eat. They would brief me on our timeline every now and then. Krishna will be the one leading the way and heading the team and Lucas acts as sweeper to make sure I am never left alone at the trail. Meaning I am guarded. There was never a time I felt unsafe.

    I had a great dinner and they showed us their cultural dances when we arrived in Kathmandu. I look forward working with them again on my next visit in Nepal.

    My boyfriend and I completed the 5 day Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek in early June 2019 and we had just the best time.

    From the moment we sent our first enquiry to Alpine Ramble we knew we were in safe hands as Dil (the owner) responded to us immediately and answered all our questions quickly and fully.

    From that moment on we were well looked after. ART picked us up from the airport (and greeted us with marigold garlands which was a lovely touch), they also came to our hotel to talk us through the itinerary and lent us sleeping bags and a waterproof duffel bag for the trek.

    ART arranged everything for us: transport from Kathmandu to Pokhara, permits, food, accommodation and they even let us change our return date so we were able to spend some extra time exploring Pokhara and then moving on to Chitwan. They were so flexible and helpful which made everything so easy for us.

    Our guide Laxman and porter Samir were very kind, knowledgeable, and they went out of their way to make sure we were happy, comfortable and always having a great time (including singing songs for us during some of the harder parts of the trek).

    I couldn’t recommend ART strongly enough. They were brilliant and we will definitely use them again if we return to Nepal in the future.

    The Annapurna Base Camp trek via Poon Hill is one of the most beautiful and scenic treks in the Annapurna region. We had an amazing time with our guide Laxman who always made sure we were comfortable in the best tea houses and topped up with Snickers and Oreos to keep us going! During our trek, unfortunately, Coronavirus issues took a turn but our guides quick thinking got us off the mountain and back to Kathmandu before roadblocks and a nationwide lockdown happened the next morning. We cannot thank him enough! Our guide was amazing and had our safety in mind, not only during the trek but also continued to support us (along with Dil, the tour manager) after the Trek ensuring we were safe and taken good care of.
    Communication with Dil was amazing, he was always quick to answer emails and any questions we had both before and after the trip. Both Dil and our guide, Laxman we're a pleasure to deal with and we will be back again for sure! Can't recommend Alpine Ramble highly enough!

    Are You dreaming of going to Nepal and go for some great trek? You don't have company or any idea how to organise Yourself? I strongly recommend You trek with AR. Fisrt of all Dil and his Team will welcome You warmly and pick up from the airport. Will spend time with You to discous any details and clear Your doubts. Finally You will attend a trek with a professional and experience guide and porter, if need! I've done my Trek to ABC and I am extremely happy for all - company and care I've got from my Team.I had pleasure to trek with one of most experienced Guides - Dilman and Saugat. Their knowledge and situations awarnes are pricles. Dilman it's ready to advise in any point of time and share his knowledge. Saugat was extremely helpful and took care of me in a way I don't need to worry about anything. He was always ready whenever I need something. It made my trek very comfortable experience. We also trek with Addit, as he was helping with carrying stuff (strong and fast I would say :). Apart of experience and professionalism, they just grow up in place we trek and they know every corner. And most important is..we had a lot of fun :) on the way! Guys create a great athmosphere. We became a friend's and trek was a pleasure (even if we get wet in the rain hehe). I enjoyed everyday of our trip!I felt safe and in good hands. Whenever possible, Dil was in touch with me and give a planty of his time to make sure my trip it's great and safe.Definitely would come back to Nepal and do other activities with Alpine Ramble Treks. Thanks You for taking care of me. Namaste.

    From the minute we were welcomed at Kathmadu airport with marigold garlands to the farewell meal at the end of our trip we had an excellent experience with Alpine Ramble.

    Prior to arriving all of our queries were promptly answered with plenty of information and Dil the owner, our guide and our porter all met us beforehand in person to make sure we had all the information we needed and felt ready for our trip.

    The trip itself was fantastic, with stunning views and our guide (Laxman) and porter (Samir) doing everything they could to make the trek as enjoyable as possible.

    Even after we had finished the trek Alpine Ramble helped us organise a further trip to Chitwan and arranged a farewell dinner for us before we left Nepal.

    We've only got good things to say about the service, hospitality and value for money we got on this trip and would thoroughly recommend Dil, Laxman and the Alpine ramble team to anyone looking for an adventure in Nepal.
