Recommend Mountain Hawk for anyone going trekking in Nepal
Mountain Hawk were recommended to me by friends who trekked with them last year on their honeymoon. From the organising perspective, couldn't have been easier. Prem was quick to reply to any emails as I worked out exactly what I wanted to, which ended up going to Chitwan NP and doing the Everest Base Camp trek.

Truly unforgettable experience !
Nepal is a beautiful country with diverse and stunning scenery. The culture in the cities is unmissable, with a really friendly and spiritual atmosphere. Trekking into the mountains gives a sense of sereneness and tranquility, surrounded by breathtaking panoramic views.

Truly memorable trip
This was our second trek with the Mountain Hawk team and it was just as well organised and fun as the first. We were in regular contact with Prem via telephone and skype during the build up to our trek.
