1. We definitely enjoy all parts of our trip and Sange Sherpa and Jangbu Sherpa were excellent guides! Our family had an excellent time on our ABC Trek, plus Seti Khola rafting with Adventure Aves. The whole trip exceeded our expectations. We will certainly recommend Pema Treks to our friends and return again in the future. Thank you!
2. I am 12 years old kid and I found it all great, the length of the days was perfect and Sange and Jangbu were easy to approach and they were really nice. Thank!
3. Sange and Jangbu were fantastic guide! They were knowledgeable and attentive; very kind to our children.
