How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Our guide was very knowledgeable and well organised and made sure everything went to plan. He was very friendly and was very approachable and good humoured . He also gave some of us who needed it encouragement.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Get as fit as you can. It might be obvious but the fitter you are the more you will enjoy it. I had not done any training but am relatively youngish so still did but at a slower pace. I would also have liked to see the spring flowers in bloom so go in February if you can for this. Wear a mask as the pollution in Katmandu is very high and you risk getting a infection before you start your trek.
Do you have anything else to add?
I have wanted to go to Nepal for over 10 years , I finally made it and it surpassed all my expectations and more. We had a magical early morning elephant safari moving through the 8 feet elephant grass to track the one horned rhino. The mist made it very beautiful.
