    Best Operator for Island Peak Climbing

    I contacted Nepal Adventure Team in the last hour when I and my group wanted to climb Island peak. With their fast response, and good management we were able to have the best tour. The experienced guides helped us throughout the tour. We luckily got a chance to experience Dashain with their wonderful family as well. We are thankful to the agency and highly recommend them.

    Island Peak Climbing

    We are very satisfied with the service. Our guide did his best to help us reach the summit of Island Peak and get back to base camp. We will definitely choose this trekking company for another climbing. Highly recommended!
