    Amazing cross country tours with Alpine Eco Trek

    Finally, we did it: Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan (cross country tours). It was our dream of traveling to these 3 Himalayan countries. What seemed like places so far away on the other side of the world and cultures so foreign to us from the west, at first was a bit daunting. This was the first time ever in our travels that I did not do any research or prepare a detailed itinerary (usually spend an entire month or so organize) Because of the region, we knew this was not possible to do on our own with the logistics of visas, flights, and booking accommodations but also knowing the what to see and where to go when. Mr. Ram, your communication was perfect and the itinerary you custom put together for us was more than we expected. It was thoughtful and every day was well planned. It allowed for rest and nothing was rushed. On top of that, the tour guides of Alpine Eco Trek, who took care of us were incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. We have even become friends with some of them. We could not have had such an immersive and exceptional experience without them. We learned about more than just the surface sights but a lot about history, culture, Himalayan lifestyle, food, religion, politics, and the different arts of Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. Our drivers were patient and high skilled in navigating the roads. We will share our travel stories and memories with our friends and family and cannot wait to return again to the region. Thank you again Mr. Ram for making our vacation precious with such special memories. Anyone looking to travel to these destinations should absolutely be confident they will be well taken care of by Alpine Eco Trek.

    Amazing Nepal Tibet Bhutan tour

    One of the most beautiful trips we have ever been on. It was an interesting trip over 14 days with just the 4 of us on the tour. We enjoyed the tour starting with 3 days in Kathmandu then 5 days in Tibet, including the amazing tour of ancient sites of Lhasa; back to Kathmandu for 1 day and 4 nights 5 days in Bhutan including the breathtaking hike to Tiger’s Nest then home. Ram looked after us extremely well whilst we were in Nepal, Dawa took good care of us whilst we were in Tibet and Tashi looked after us perfectly whilst we were in Bhutan. All the hotels were outstanding and comfortable and we mostly ate the local food in several good restaurants with no ill effects. Drivers were fantastic, all in all, a great trip with a very knowledgeable company. We recommend everyone to book Nepal Tibet Bhutan tour with Ram and his company Alpine Eco Trek. They are wonderful people.
