I went on the 11-day trek up to Poon Hill then ABC, it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I'm so glad I chose to do it with Archaic Nepal. My guide Aryan was lovely, he had good English, we got on well and left as friends. All the organization by Milan was great and I felt in safe hands the whole time. Would definitely recommend using this company!

I am very impressed with the information and attention provided by my trekking guide Om. It was cold and difficult in the mountains and thanks to those jackets and sleeping bags Milan provided, made it easy after all. Very good service!! Definitely recommend to my friends back home. Stay Well.
