    Tamang Heritage Trek and Chitwan Jungle Safari

    We are just back from the most incredible holiday ever. We completed the Tamang Heritage Trail which was 6 days of trekking in the more remote areas of Nepal. We then did the Chitwan Jungle Safari which was fantastic.

    Outfitter Nepal answered all of our questions promptly, prior to our trip. Given this was our first time to Nepal and trekking, we had a few questions to ask. Arjun and Raj were great in helping us out with organizing a personalized trek for us. We loved how we could choose our own starting date and we also chose a private jeep for our transfers which we are glad we did when we saw the buses in Nepal. Our driver, Raju, was incredible.

    We felt safe, cared for, he drove so well and avoided so many bumps in the roads! He was always on time and with a warm smile to greet us. His English is good so we had great chats on our journeys and he shared lots of his knowledge which helped us gain an insight into life in Nepal. He'd be a great guide or porter too. He is Nepal's number 1 driver and I strongly recommend you ask for him when you are there.

    Hom was our wonderful guide - full of knowledge, so patient, caring and thoughtful! He went above and beyond to make sure we were well looked after. We were very fortunate to have Hom as our guide and to share our trek with him. I still don't know how he knew where to go when sometimes I couldn't even see a path! Mama was our porter and he is incredible. So strong, kind, energetic and a fantastic cook! He was in the guesthouse well before us and getting lunch or dinner ready. Such a sweet man. What a team we had with us - so grateful - thank you.

    We did the Everest Flight which was incredible. We had the day tour of Kathmandu which was so interesting and our guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt so much about Nepal that we were blown away. We found the Tamang trek just stunning. The vistas were breathtaking, some parts quite hard and challenging, food incredibly good and organic, accommodation was basic but comfortable. I was not expecting to eat so well! Dec/Jan was quite cold and not very busy so it was nice to have the trails mainly to ourselves, the locals and the animals.

    Chitwan Jungle was fantastic. We chose the 4 star option and were pleasantly surprised with the resort. We enjoyed the walking safari, local village tour, saw a lot of crocodiles, elephants, birds and even a rhinoceros! More touristy than where we had been in Tamang but still very enjoyable. We were so impressed with Outfitters Nepal and highly recommend this company.

    We couldn't fault them and they run a very professional, yet personal, business. We borrowed the sleeping bag and trekking jacket from them which saved us buying them and they sure kept us warm up in the mountains. A lovely touch is Outfitter Nepal do a farewell dinner. How nice is that!!! It was so nice to have Raju, our driver, come to the dinner with Raj.

    We have made friends for life and give Outfitter Nepal and outstanding award! If you are looking at booking and not sure who to go with, choose Outfitters Nepal.

    You can't go wrong and will have the trip of a lifetime.
