With my boyfriend we have booked one trek with Nepalaya Treks and Expedition and we have also booked 10 days in total at the hotel Nepalaya. Basu has also been very helpful for everything that we needed during our stay in Nepal like PCR tests and transportation. 🙂 we have also taken a guided city tour of Kathmandu at this agency and both the guides for the trek and for the city tour were professional, helpful and funny. We just can highly recommend the team of Nepalaya Hotel.
