This trekking company was highly recommended by our friends who used Saran as their guide a few years ago. Saran now runs this trekking company. Our guide for this trip was Bal and our porter was Lx.
They were very professional, helpful and informative. We had a great time and enjoyed our trekking experience with them. Bal, our guide even helped us to carry our rucksacks on the first day of our trek. They gave us a lot of encouragement throughout the hike. Thank you for being very patient with us.
The accommodations they had arranged for us were satisfactory.
We decided to change our transport mode from bus to plane for our journey back to Kathmandu from Pokhara and they managed to get us the plane tickets in the last minute without any hassle.
We will definitely use them again for our future treks in Nepal.

I Joined the 4 days 3 nights trekking to PoonHill. I was very sick the night before the trekking. However, considerate Garnesh took care me so well during the trek. He explained the landscape and the life of Nepalese village patiently. He also arranged nice meals and accommodate to all my requests timely.
He is the best trekking guide I have ever met during my long journey of 105th countries.
If I come back to Nepal, I will do trekking again with this agent!

The most amazing experience …I 100 percent recommend Visit Heaven Treks to anyone considering trekking in Nepal. Such wonderful caring men and iam so happy that I have made two new friends thanks ..
I am so happy to have done my first ever trek with Saran Adhikari at Visit Heaven Treks.
He has a wealth of experience and knowledge in trekking.
I felt safe and in good hands the whole time, it was evident that Saran is well known and respected by local village people. Our porter Ganesh Devkota was extremely friendly and competent. I would highly recommend Saran and his team to organise any touring or trekking whilst in Nepal
