Best Guide and Trekking company

My Name is Basset Howard from Civic center, Paris St, EX11sn Exeter Devon UK, Dhruba Bhatta is the Best guide in Nepal, my first visit was in December 2005, When he was employed by some trekking agency in Nepal and he acted as my guide on a short Everest Base Camp kalapathar Trek as far as Namche Bazaar called Everest panoramic view trek then I returned again in December 2006 to undertake the full trek to Everest Base Camp Kalapathar and My third visit to Nepal was in April 2011 and I had been Annapurna Circuit Trekking remarked how I was to have a guide so personable, knowledgeable and dedicated to me and my experience. I could not have agreed with them more and having never trekked this length before, I was a novice. It is without doubt, that if my guide had been anyone other than Dhruba, I would not have had nearly the rich, authentic, and thoroughly enjoyable experience I did on Trekking. With Dhruba I enjoyed like those points: Dhruba is sensitive and sensibility to allow a good balance between conversation and respecting an individual or couple's need for privacy, over 14 years of Trekking guide experience. In an intimate knowledge of the best accommodations, Tea stops, and places of interest along the way, according to your own individual budget. Truthful, genuine discussions, well-informed regarding anything from Nepal’s history and current politics, local religions and culture history geography natural landscape, and all Mountain names and heights. Respect for an individual’s desired pace and physical condition.

Namaste!! I First Met Dhruba Bhatta (DB) in 2018 during my first trip to Nepal. Dhruba and Ajeeb are brothers and they had opened a family business, there was no doubt that Adventure a One trek was the company to use for our Everest Base Camp trek. I talked with Dhruba for customize the itinerary for our specific dates and slightly increased the level of comfort luxury Everest trek due to the cold. he did all well organized and had the best guide Shailendra Adhikari, he is such a Knowledgeable, Talent, Helpful, and best smiley person. I like to highly recommend Shailendra Adhikari as a guide and Adventure a One Trek for joining any adventure activity in Nepal. Robert Brigs California United States
