Best experience with Great Guide! “It was our 1st trekking experience with Umesh was our trekking guide for ABC trek. We went on ABC Trek on 1st sep. to 16 sep. 2018. Umesh has been a wonderful guide for treks. He can answer all questions, from mountains to birds, flowers, and any more. He is very helpful to bring us around to get our trekking equipment. During this trek, he will ask how we were feeling, to identify if we were suffering altitude illness. Our trips could not be any enjoyable without Umesh. Thank you very much.
