Trip Name: Short Poon Hill Trek
Booked this trek from the comfort at home in the UK. Communication with Dil was brilliant, his response to all my emails were quick and courteous. He tailored the trek around us, as a small group of 4 adults ranging in age from 29 to 69 (who was still recovering from an ACL op last May). His pace was brilliant for our group.
Dil arranged to meet us in our hotel in Kathmandu and talked us through the trek, bringing maps, holdalls and T-Shirts.
The trek was for 3 nights, 4 days staying in good, clean lodges. All was included except our drinks.
We experienced trekking in glorious sunshine up to Poon Hill. There was still snow on the ground and Dil provided the group with crampons, which made walking easier and safer.
Our trek started and ended in Pokhara. Dil and his team collected us from our hotel in Pokhara promptly at the time agreed.
Dil and the porters were brilliant, the porters were more than porters and made our trek even more enjoyable. We felt totally safe and Dil was an excellent guide. The scenery was spectacular.
Would certainly use Awesome Nepal Treks again as Dil arranges trips to Tibet and Bhutan.
Subject: Thanks for a great trek
Message: We have just completed a 15 day Himalayan trek with Awesome Nepal Treks and it could not have been better! The trek was very well organized, had excellent food and accommodation, there was no problems whatsoever and our guide Dil was a very informative, well-spoken and absolutely entertaining guy. The whole experience was amazing and I would strongly recommend Awesome Nepal Treks to anyone who wants a great, enjoyable, hassle-free trip.
My cousin and I traveled to Nepal in 2011 and completed the Everest Basecamp Trek with our guide Dil Thapa.
Dil absolutely made sure this trek would far exceed my expectations and I am grateful for the time we shared together in Nepal.
There are an endless amount of photos and videos online for us to see the natural beauty of Nepal before arriving there. The greatest compliment I can give Nepal (more specifically, Dil Thapa) is this, the beauty of Nepal is its people first and foremost.

Message: I had the pleasure of having Dil as our guide along the Annapurna Circuit in winter season of 2016/2017. We had an absolutely amazing trek, experiencing all you could ask for and more in the Himalayas. Annapurna offers a huge variety in terrain, scenery, weather and challenges. Each giving its own experience and forging many memories.
Dil was an absolute professional as a guide, from the moment he met us at Kathmandu airport to the moment we said goodbye. Nothing was too difficult for him. He was happy to help us with little things like collecting our passport photos to the big things like carrying one of our group members packs over the pass, and would answer any question we had for him. Dil obviously has a good relationship with the local villagers and is well respected by them. This was obvious to us in the conversations he had as he chose our accommodation and helped with the serving of our meals. Dil also had the utmost respect for our porters, as they did for him. It was a well oiled partnership which was a pleasure to be a part of.
Our small group all succumbed to the flu at some stage during the trek. Dil was fantastic with giving us recommendations on changes with the itinerary and he was spot on every time. The decisions made lightened the load on us when needed but did not hinder our experience at all.
I had absolute trust and faith in Dil the entire trek. He is a well seasoned guide with his trekker’s best interests at heart. He was the professional guide the entire trek and by the end a good friend, someone who enjoyed a good laugh with our group! If I ever have the chance to trek in the Himalayas again, I will be returning to trek with Dil. Thank you Dil!!

Message: I went to Nepal for the very time in May 2017. I did the Annapurna Base Camp hike and loved every bit of it! Dil was the guide for our group and he was amazing! He made sure we were always well taken care of and safe during the hike. He was always calm, kind, patient, funny and seriously the best guide I could have asked for. There were times when I was so tired and struggled with my steps. He walked in front of me so that he could guide me and even kicked loose stones out of the way so that I won’t slip! He never rushed us, made sure we took every photo that we wanted and allowed us to soak in the amazing views. He definitely elevated my Nepal experience and made it much more easier to fall in love with this beautiful country. I want to go back every year to try other trails and definitely only want Dil to be my guide!
Trip Name: Annapurna Circuit
From: Ken Mcilwain
This trip was my first time to Nepal, trekking and exploring a small section of its beautiful landscape, the Annapurna circuit from Besisahar to Pokhara.
Hi, I’m Ken (62yrs), the overall experience was beyond my imagination, astonishing views of magnificent mountains with snow-capped peaks and farmed terraces. It’s difficult finding the appropriate adjectives to truly explain the grandeur of the views. Even my photos don’t show the depth and beauty of this Nepalese landscape.
It wasn’t until we started the drive from Kathmandu, via the local highway that I noticed, what I first thought was clouds in the sky but were snow covered mountains. I was awestruck by their size, reaching higher than the clouds. I could feel a small twinge of excitement come over me, “This is going to be one hell of trek”.
Dil’s professionalism, knowledge and thoughtfulness made every day great for our group. Every detail of our trek was considered and looked after. He would check our rooms before we entered them which made for a no hassle relaxing evening after a long day trekking. And even checking the bottles of water we purchased, he would make sure they hadn’t been tampered with.
On one day, I asked Dil how he could know what pace to walk at. Easy, he said, I listen to your breathing, your steps and of course what you were saying. I laughed, thinking I would try to trick him. The laugh was on me, he would watch all the team.
I would consider this as my best guided tour/trek ever for exploring, trekking, photographing and relaxing.

Dil is a very knowledgeable and fun Guide. We feel very safe and secure through out the whole hiking trip with Dil. He will make sure his arrangement always put his customer at priority. Besides, he also share a lot of information to educate us such as mountain along our hiking trip, how to prevent AMS, what kind of food that we should prevent, and more. Every night, Dil will check if we are ok both physically or emotionally. He even ask us to eat more if he see some of us was eating too less!
In Summary, Dil did a really great job in everything and I believe he will continue to do his best to serve his customer!

Thank everything on Dil for my first and successful adventure in EBC last November. Bombarded with the many unsuccessful conquering of EBC from friends and Facebook,I (even with the background of ultra and triathlon) have self doubt on ascending EBC via Gokyo. Luckily with Dil meticulous planning and flawless excution during the trip, we manage to conquer EBC. I vividly remember the encouragement that strong mental play the important part with obstacles and challenges ahead before the trip. Can not wait to see you again for my next trip on Island Peak next year!
Message: What an amazing experience! Dil and his team were awesome, took care of everything and made sure my trek was a once in a lifetime adventure. His knowledge and energy brought a special element to my trek and I thoroughly recommend choosing Awesome Nepal Treks whenever you visit the Himilayas.
