Look no further...these guys are the best of the best!
We did a 200 mile trek in the NorthEast region of Nepal through the Himalayas. Janga was our head guide and we couldn't have found anyone better! He is incredibly knowledgeable about the land, it's history, and the culture. The whole crew was helpful, respectful, encouraging, kind, and provided us with the everything we needed for a fulfilling experience. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Firante Treks & Expeditions! I still miss the knock on my tent in the morning with hot tea ready to wake me up.
I had the pleasure of trekking through Humla with Firante Traks and Expeditions. My guide hands down make the trip for me. Kind, understanding and very supportive. Because it was a physically and emotionally challenging adventure I couldn't have done it without him. Hands down one of the best experiences of my life and will never forget the staff that made it possible.
