Just returned from a trip to Tibet and Nepal organised by Achut and his team at Manakama Treks and Expeditions. From the outset when i booked the trip and had great communication with Achut and Keshav who promptly answered any questions i had and when i asked to choose an alternative hotel in Lhasa there was no problem at all. When I arrived in Kathmandu there was transport waiting to collect me. I had a couple of days in Kathmandu before flying to Lhasa and Achut arranged for a local guide to show me around and he made suggestions on where to eat which was very helpful. Again on arrival in Lhasa we had an excellent guide in Samdup who was very informative and made us feel very welcome in his country. The hotels in Tibet were excellent ie Tibet Gorkha Hotel in Lhasa, Hotel Yeti in Gyantse and the hotel in Shigatse. The road trip from Lhasa back to Kathmandu was absolutely stunning with the views of the mountains, and especially Yamdrok Lake. We also visited Everest base Camp but got stranded there for a further 24 hours due to heavy snow and had to be rescued by the Chinese army. Whilst there our guide kept us informed on the efforts to be rescued. It even made the internet as it was so unusual for it to happen but was due to a cyclone in India. Samdup and our driver then made a concerted effort to get us to the Tibetan border so i didn't miss my flight home. As we got to the border control to return to Nepal Achut kept in contact and arranged for transport to take us back to Kathmandu. To sum up it was a trip of a lifetime. Achut and his team provided a fantastic service at a very reasonable price and I would definitely recommend them.
