  • We recently completed 12 days Everest base camp trekking through Trekking in Nepal Info Pvt. Ltd, I would like to say thank you very much for your Guide Temba Sherpa. He is very friendly, helpful and tireless.as well as a stay in Hotel Manang and 2 days stay in Namche Bazzar. From meeting at the beginning of the trip to them organising extra accommodation and flights after the tour for us, the company was nothing but organised and professional. Special mention to Bish, our guide who went above and beyond requirements to make sure everybody in our group was healthy and enjoying the trip ‘as much as you’
    could. At all the overnight stops, both the food and the accommodation was better than I was expecting, no doubt due to TINI knowing the right places to Take. I highly Recommend them as a great Company to deal with for any Trekker to Nepal.
