JC Gellidon:

Thanks @travelexplorenepal for being the best trek guide/porter/nurse/photographer and a best friend to this phenomenal experience. We cant blame you for having doubts after the first day that we will make it hahaha. You fought with us during the hardest part of this journey and allow us to stop, rest (a lot) and still have fun. Big Shoutout to heroes of Himalayas, our porter Bhola, I don’t know how you will finish our 2 days walk in just a half day. We will miss you, the dal bhat power and our Gorkha nights. Dhanyabaad Krishna and Bhola.

The trip felt like we were surrounded by family for the 7 days of trekking. Krishna ensured we were well prepared prior to departure and offered all the help we needed during the trek. He was an amazing guide and a true friend. This company has created an experience that we will never ever forget. Thank you so much!

David Jakobik 

Great tour company, I was well looked after and all my questions answered. When on the actual tour had a great time not only with the culture and scenery but with the people I was with, made a big difference for me. Worth the visit to Nepal and black stork treks will help you with all your needs.

Maria Janlyn:

We did ABC trek new year of 2019 and we are from Manila, Philippines.

I highly recommend Black Stork based overall experience – Krishna was a very hands on guy, he pick up us in airport late night due to our delayed flight, gave us welcome dinner, and from day 1 upto our last day we did not have any troubles or issues with our accommodation, food and Transportation. He even provided us good discounts. He brought us to good places and guided us and took care of our needs very well.

Our heartfelt gratitude to him for looking out after us during the entire trek, we were very slow and have zero stamina, he did not left us and he walk with us until we could not make any more steps. And yes we made it to basecamp bec of his guidance and support!! He is a very well experienced guide and you’ll be assured and feel secured all the time.

And its true! It’s like hiking with a friend. He understands the needs of traveler. You know you’re in good hands with a good, passionate and kind hearted trek guide like Krishna.

Thanks @travelexplorenepal for being the best trek guide/porter/ nurse/ photographer and a friend to this phenomenal experience. You fought with us during the hardest part of this journey and allow us to stop, rest and still have fun. It would have been a totally different experience if it weren’t for Krishna who made everything light, hassle free and happy.
