“Excellent services ”
We were spending two months in Nepal and had been told by a friend that Happyland Treks was a great place to get started with our adventure. This was great advice: all the details and chores were sorted for us, meaning my friends and I could focus entirely on the experience itself. Those four days of trekking were astonishing, and when we got back, Happy showed us how to celebrate in style (and which tourist traps to avoid!) Next time I’m in Kathmandu, I’ll be visiting Happy again, for sure.

“Best Trekking Nepal ”
After a very long journey to Kathmandu, Happy was a breath of fresh air to deal with. Travel can be very unpredictable, but having a reliable guide made us rest much easier. The seven days of trekking, while arduous, were very rewarding, and the Gurung people were warm, welcoming, and accommodating. I would go again next week if I could.
