Reviews of Trek
Wonderful Tamang Heritage Trekking with Base Camp Hike
This was my 2nd trip of mine. I chose Tamang Heritage Trekking due to it being short and relatively off the beaten path. We had wonderful holidays with Base Camp Hike.
The trek was spectacularly gorgeous, and the guesthouses chosen for us were comfortable. Our guide took such good care of us. I would again use their service in the future. Jayaram(boss) is responsive right from the beginning and patient with my many questions before the trekking. Thank you so much, Jayaram for everything!
I enjoyed 7 days Tamang Heritage Trail
I had completed the Tamang Heritage trek in 7 days organized by Base Camp Hike. It’s one of the most beautiful trails I ever made.
The trek was amazing, everything was superb. I enjoyed watching typical houses, people, and their lifestyle and an amazing view of Ganesh Himal from Nagthali viewpoint.
Thank you, Jayaram(manager) for providing me with the best guide(Kamal). He knows everything regarding the Tamang Heritage Trail.
