What our clients Say?

Gokyo Valley Trek
Team Libra United Kingdom

Best trekking Company for Gokyo valley

November 28, 2013

Only 2 members of our team of 18 had been to Nepal before and both times with Prem and his team at Mountain Hawk (MH). The fact that we chose MH again is a testament to their excellent organisation and ability to manage such a large group. There was a lot of correspondence before the trip which was very efficiently handled by Prem and his guidance in preparing us for the expedition was invaluable. As you can imagine, looking after each one of a group of 18 with diverse needs is not easy but throughout the trip, the entire crew was superb and attended to all our needs with patience and a smile. There were some tricky moments as weather conditions were testing but their encouragement and support got us through. Above all, we all had a lot of fun and laughter with them as we felt they were like a family to us. Thank you MH from all our hearts and look forward to more trips with you.
