We've just come back from a 4 days trek with Halesi treks. Man Kumar (the owner) was very kind to meet Us in Pokhara to have a beer together before the trek in order to give us some suggestions and information about the trek route. Our guide (Niru Rai) was very professional and attentive to our needs. We slept in comfortable tea houses, with wi-fi and hot shower. We ate good Nepalese food and even delicious pasta (a more than welcome surprise at 3000 mt).
We felt safe during every second of the trek with Niru ( a guide used to climb up to 7000 mt peaks).
We definitely recommend Halesi trek for a beautiful experience in Nepal.

Man Kumar was so helpful throughout the whole process, planned my trip based on my requirements so quickly and so professional! Was welcomed to Kathmandu at the airport by niru who was with me throughout the trip! So polite, friendly and helpful. The trek itself was amazing, even with the monsoon rains it was beautiful to see the greenery and nature! The accommodation was clean and the staff was very welcoming! You will need to pay extra for wifi and hot water at the hotels.
Due to monsoon season, it was cloudy at the top of poonhill so unfortunately couldn't see the views! However, it was so peaceful to sit by the window watching the rainstorm and thunder! I can not thank niru and man Kumar enough for the help and support throughout the trip and even once it was finished they continued to offer advice about Nepal and gave great recommendations on places to visit and restaurants to eat at! The whole trip was perfect and the service from these two was amazing! Thanks again!
