                    Sarangkot Dhampus Trek

                    I and a friend arranged a tour with Outfitter when we visited Nepal in May/June 2013. They looked after us incredibly well, and the cost was amazing value. Our guide, Bishnu was friendly and knowledgeable, and made sure we got the most out of our trip.

                    I would thoroughly recommend Outfitter's services to anyone travelling to Nepal, we had absolutely no complaints and would definitely book with them if and when we go back to this amazing country.
