Couple Traveller

My partner and I did a 6 day trekking in the Himalayas (Peaky Peak route). I highly recomend it as it gives amazing views of the highest Himalayan mountains (including Mt Everest) and also the chance to experience life in Nepal rural areas.

I also highly recommend Asian Heritage. They were very attentive and helped us with so many questions before our trip. The experience with our guide and porter during the trekking was also outstanding, they were so nice and had so much knowledge. Our guide even invited us to his home and to a Sherpa wedding in his village!
