    • What our clients say

      I wanted to know how to travel to Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet simultaneously. Thanks to Himalayan Dreams, they planned a combined trip for me. I took a 16 days tour across Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan and the experience was fantastic. I visited Kathmandu and also Thimphu and Paro in Bhutan. I spent a few days in Tibet and then returned home with a lot of memories. Thank you.
      ~Linda Cooper – USA

      We took the Annapurna Circuit Trek in Nepal which was a wonderful experience. Trekking in Nepal was a surreal experience. Our trekking guide, Jay Tamang, was amazingly knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our entire holiday in Nepal. I would recommend trekking in Nepal to all my friends as it is really amazing. We hope to trek in the mountains of Nepal again soon, this time perhaps the Everest Base Camp trek. Thank you, Himalayan Dreams.
      – Matthew Taylor, AZ, USA
