      Client Reviews

      • Tsum Valley Trek in Manaslu region.

        I traveled to Nepal in February, 2024 and booked a solo 12 day hike to Tsum Valley in the Manaslu region.
        I can’t say enough of great things about my guide Ganesh. He is a man with a big heart, genuine, easy to talk to, entertainer, always positive and smiling. He went above and beyond to create the best experience for me, stepping in several times to make me tasty meal, translating endless questions I had for the locals…I am really thankful for everything he’s done - we clicked right away and had a great time on the trail from day one.
        My porter, Ramesh, was the most genuine guy, so polite, friendly, always there with my tea or coffee, ready to help. Literally the nicest guy.

        There is a lot of completion among trekking companies in Nepal and I feel SO lucky I found Ace Vision Treks and this great team. As a solo female traveler, both Ganesh and Ramesh made me feel safe and comfortable. Highly recommend this tour company. Five stars all around.
