    Client Reviews

    • Great trek to Teng Boche

      We just finished a great trek to Teng Boche with Ace Vision Treks and Trips. Ganesh tailored the trek to suit our schedule and abilities, and Santhosh was an expert guide who took excellent care of us from start to finish.

      We got a good break in the weather, with the late-to-leave monsoon finally ending so that we could fly from Kathmandu to Lukla on schedule, before all flights got shifted to Ramechap. The lodgings in Phakding, Namche Bazaar and Teng Boche were very comfortable, with plenty of good food.

      On the trail Santhosh took good care of us, making sure the fit folks didn’t move too fast, and that the slow and steady didn’t feel rushed. He took extra care with the one member of the party who didn’t like the high bridges... such good care that the person later solo’ed the last bridge.

      At the lodgings he made sure we had good rooms with great views (important in Namche and Teng Boche), and got our food orders in early so we could eat on time and not have to wait.

      All and all a great trek with a reliable company. We will definitely use Ace Vision Nepal on our next visit!
