We did an India/Nepal tour. Scenic Mountain was the tour company the Indian company contracted with. We were in Nepal for 4 nights. We had some issues when we arrived in Nepal. No one from the company was at the airport to pick us up. I tried calling them to tell them we were at the airport and I had a hard time communicating with the person that answered the phone, who kept asking me about the hotel. We landed at 830 am in Nepal and were not picked up until 1030 am. We were picked up in a local taxi, which did not have enough room to put in 2 luggages. The person that finally came to pick us up did not introduce himself and was more concern with the "voucher" (which had the cash). He was on the phone the entire ride to the hotel. We were supposed to meet someone at the hotel around 10. Since we were not picked up on time, I tried to tell the company representative that came to meet us to call the hotel to tell them to wait. But I don't think he did. He later told us that he did not receive the flight information from our India contact and finally apologized. Then we met an angel, Deepak Risal. Deepak was the best guide ever! He was knowledgable and was very kind. Our personalities clicked right away since the first moment we met him. We asked if he could be our tour guide for the entire tour and he said that he was only booked for 2 days with us. We called the company to ask if we can have him for our entire Nepal journey. Instead of saying yes or no, the person that I talked to said that he will come to the hotel the next day and will talk to us in person. He never showed up. No call no show. We did our tour on the 2nd day and ended up going to their place of business to ask in person and Ghan Ghimire was kind enough to say ok! On the 3rd day and 4th day, our agenda was to hike to/from Nagarkot. We packed our luggages and were ready to go, until our tour guide said to only bring what was needed because the driver was not going to meet us in Nagarkot. The company had their own agenda (perhaps to save money) but they forgot to share this with us. We had to stuff our essentials in a small backpack. Had they share the information with us, we each would've brought our own backpacks from home and packed accordingly! The company would've gotten a 5 stars if they communicated!! (And the car they provided had no working seat belt for the passengers!)

Thank you Dip for arranging my magical trip to Pokhara in Januaray 2017 and all the boat rides and 5 star hotel. I had a wonderful time! and Thank you so much for arranging my Everest Base Camp hike and Annapurna hike in October 2016. I had such a fantastic time hiking with your company and staying with your company in Kathmandu that I had to return 3 months later! Thank you for making Nepal an incredible vacation and your helpers were incredible too! Thank you Anil and Gokel for all your help! and I loved visiting the Monkey temples in Kathmandu. You have such a great company and wonderful hotels and I highly recommend Scenic Mountain Travels and Tours!!!!!!! i will be back in 6 months to hike again with you!

We only had 2 days so we really needed someone to show us the highlights in a limited time. So happy Dip guided us. He was really professial. He had a lot to tell and different than the things you already read on the internet. We' ve had such a nice day in Kathmandu. Really felt like we got to know the city a little bit. Highly recommended!

We had a lovely tour walking around Kathmandu Valley with Dip as our guide. We spent 3 days trekking through fields and hills, with beautiful views and good company. This is a beautiful and underrated part of Nepal, and was a very relaxing trip - perfect to warm up for our later difficult treks to Pokhara and the Annapurna trail, again with Dip. I'd recommend these trips to anyone, it was well-organised, and our guide was very friendly and encouraging. Thank you for a great trip!
