      Client Reviews

      • Tamang Heritage + Langtang Valley trek

        Ganesh organized a trek for me that combined the Tamang Heritage and Langtang Valley routes. Working with Ganesh is a full-service experience--Ganesh went above and beyond to help in every way possible, from helping me decide which routes to trek and working out the details based on my questions and feedback, to helping me arrange things to do in the days immediately before and after the trek. Lal was great to have as the guide for the trek, his long experience and his care for his guests and for everyone he meets was very evident.

        Was a beautiful experience overall, combining cultural and natural learnings and beauty. Recommend the trek and the Ace Vision team for those considering a trek, their years of experience can help choose and carry out the right trek.
