“Personalised Nepal Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

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.

“The Himalayan Motorcycle Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Completed in Sept 2013. A great tour covering all the locations you would want, and more.

The Royal Enfield's surprisingly held up very well over the tough terrain and were serviced daily by the support crew (consisting of guide, driver and mechanic).

The company owner, Mr Basnet, was very welcoming and a pleasure to deal with.

Recommended!

“Royal Enfield motorbike tour of Tibet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

I've just completed (Sept 2013) my trip of a life time. Touring with Parikrama Tours from Kathmandu to Lhasa and back, riding via Mt.Everest base camp. With only 3 riders the group was small but ideal. Apart from day one when it rained the weather was perfect. Our support crew was exceptional, with all the tiring Chinese checkpoints which the guide got us through as quick as possible. Every morning and night the mechanic checked / serviced the bikes. With only a couple of minor breakdowns, the bikes performed very well for the conditions.
The trip to EBC was on rough, dusty gravel road of about 160km round trip in length, easily accomplished by a skilled rider. The rest of the roads throughout Tibet were of good to excellent standard. It was a fantastic trip but be prepared for some cold mornings, <8c, with snow covered mountain passes and wondering Yaks and dogs on the roads. Awesome trip with a excellent touring company. Thank you Basnet

“Great trip and exellent service!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

My name is Natalia, I went to trip to mt Kailash. It was 12 day trip and i really enjoyed it. Organization by "Parikrama treks" was flawless. We had 2 Sherpa guys who took care of all our meals and luggage. They are really put there heart in what they do and meals were very delishious. This trip is hard one due to weather conditions and pure infrastructure through Tibet. That's why I was so glad that I had such a good organization and crew. Mr. Kumar went on this trip with us and he did all possible to take care of group and accomodate us best way possible. I had great experience and would use "Paricrama Treks" service again.

This year I did my second trip with Parikrama, doing the Circuit and Sanctuary together over 17 days. My guide and portal were excellent throughout, everything worked perfectly and they were great company.
