Trip reviews

very happy and satisfied


Travelling Year: 2012

In short, I was very happy and satisfied with their friendly and professional service and support during my trip of Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek and Island Peak Climbing. Since I have been dreaming about trekking and climbing in Nepal for many years. Finding the right people to help me turn my dream to reality was of utmost importance needless to say. So they were very responsive and efficient in terms of organizing and running the itinerary. And also very friendly and courteous.

Thank you all the staff @ AATE. For helping me live the dream for other trekking plans. I have in mind in the upcoming season. I will never hesitate to go with AATE again and definitely recommend them to my family and all other acquaintances who wish to trek in Nepal.

God Bless
