I first met Milan in Katmandu at the hostel I was staying at. I had no real travel plans, I just wanted to immerse myself in the local culture and get the best experience out of my trip. Milan was very helpful with that, he gave me very insightful explanations about life in Nepal, custom tailored my trip in the best way I could imagine, all while playing the guitar and being super friendly ! If you're looking for a trust worthy company that is more authentic than the big travel agencies, I strongly advise to check Archaic Nepal. I ended up visiting Chitwan National Park, Katmandu Valley and trekking all the way to Everest Base Camp. It was one of the best experience of my life. Nepal is awesome !!
