TRIP REVIEWS

“If you want to experience the ‘real Nepal’ you cannot go past an expedition by HGA. I have travelled to Nepal twice, firstly to Everest Base Camp and several years later I was lucky enough to participate in the first Women’s Trek organised by HGA. I could not get over the two different Nepal’s I have experienced. HGA’s Women’s Trek took us to areas very few tourist get to see and to experience authentic cultural exchanges, unlike my very commercial experience of my EBC trek. Not only did I come away with phenomenal memories of Nepal and its people I made some lifelong friends with the women who accompanied me on the trek. Highly recommended the Women’s Trek and will do it again soon I hope.”
