I have climbed 4 trekking peaks in Nepal with support of Holiday Mountain. Abir has got a great professional team work for a successful climbing expedition. Climbing guide Mr. Tenzing is super man with lots of experience, confident and energy. Porters are really hard working, smiling and helpful. All Ican say is if anyone plans to climb trekking peaks in Nepal, make all your arrangements with HolidayMountain Treks-good and safe hands actually. All the best!!!
