Trekking with Dream Path Treks in the Himalaya

2018

We had a wonderful trek with Dream Path. The scenery was fabulous, and our every need was catered for by dp and our fantastic guide, Suman. Damodar(dp) ensured that our trek was very well organized,, and Suman was a wealth of knowledge regarding the different villages and mountains.

 

I highly recommend Dream Path for trekking in the Himalayas.

Wonderful Annapurna Trek

2016

We traveled to Nepal in April 2017 to do the Annapurna Round trek with my relatives. We had been recommended Nepal Dream Path for our trek in Nepal by our friend and we’re glad to go with them! We had Bharat Shrestha as our guide and Saroj as our helper. They both worked very hard to make sure the trip was as enjoyable as possible for us. We particularly appreciated the extra lengths they went to – especially the fruit after dinner. I would highly recommend this company for the good trekking experience in Nepal and I am also thinking of going in the future.
