Best Trekking Guide & Agency Ever.
From the SAN TREKKING agency Narayan took me on a fabulous trek in the hills of central Nepal; "off the beaten track" is an understatement. Everything about it was wonderful, the accomadations, food, but most of all the people in this idyllic place. I found Narayan to be very knowledgable, friendly, capable, and he also speaks very good English. If you want guide you can rest assured to be trustworthy, you will not go wrong with Narayan. When I go back to Nepal he will definately be the guide that I will look up.

Beautiful country, great people, an amazing experience!
Spent about a month in Nepal last year with San trekking. It was such a beautiful experience. Trekking in Pokhara in the Annapurna region and mountain flight was just out of this world. Their team took great care of us. Beautiful country, great people, an amazing experience!
What a wonderful journey it was!
San Trekking provided us with a amazing trekking experience. Narayan took care of our each and every need. Their concern for our health, safety and well being was a credit to the company. I highly recommend this team for your next travel tour in Nepal. Cheers!
