I did a 3 day hike and had a fantastic time! Nimesh took care of everything and was able to arrange last minute permits for my trip. All was organized perfectly and I had a very good guide that adapted to my walking speed, explained me about the plants and animals and answered all my questions about the Nepalese culture. I can definitely recommend TapoBhumi!
