During May 2013, my wife and I spent a marvellous few weeks exploring Nepal as individual travellers. Our guide was Mr. Basnet of PARIKRAMA Treks & Expeditions P/L. He could not do enough for us. From the planning stage via his contact in Australia, to farewelling us at Kathmandu airport, he could not have been more attentive.
He is a very pleasant self-made man (originally a Sherpa porter) who now runs his own company. He is a perfectionist with detail, and has a wonderful sense of humour.
We travelled the length and breadth of Nepal, both by car and by air, and at our request he even organised for us to attend an Ashram in Lumbini (birthplace of Buddha). When he didn't personally drive or guide, he had an excellent team of drivers and English-speaking knowledgeable guides.
We could not recommend him or his company highly enough, and if ever we return to that area to visit Bhutan, Tibet etc., I know whom we will be contacting.
