The planning and execution of this trip by Heera and my guide Samjhana was excellent. All accommodations were clean and comfortable with delicious food. My drivers were safe and professional. I was able to see and experience so much of Nepal in just two weeks. They took good care of me as a solo female traveler and filled my time with wonderful experiences and memories. I highly recommend Wind Horse Tours and Treks for travel to Nepal.
