Best choice Amonng The many trekking companies!!

Despite my last-minute decision to choose Buna Treks and Expedition for my trekking adventure, it turned out to be a brilliant choice. Their flexibility, prompt responses, and dedication ensured a smooth experience from start to finish. The Upper Dolpo trek was a remarkable journey, thanks to the expertise of Buna’s team. Even with short notice, they arranged everything seamlessly, creating an unforgettable experience. I’m already planning to trek with them again, and Buna Treks has undoubtedly become my go-to choice for future adventures in the Himalayas. Highly recommended for their professionalism and commitment to delivering exceptional trekking experiences.

Tour in Nepal

I availed Buna Trek’s Kathmandu Valley One Day Sightseeing Tour and it was truly one of the highlights of my stay in Kathmandu. Rudra was a spectacular tour guide and knew the city and its history like the back of his hands. I particularly enjoyed Kathmandu Durbar Square and Swayambhunath Stupa. The tour was well organized and leisurely paced. The transfer from my hotel to the sites and stopovers were seamless and Rudra was very accommodating and cheerful during the entire trip. Rudra even took the time to accompany in Thamel to explore the area’s nightlife and cultural show. I also got to taste authentic local cuisine as per Rudra’s recommendation, and the food in Thamel was nothing short of fantastic! It was like having a local friend tour you in Kathmandu, making the experience worthwhile and truly memorable. Kathmandu may be a tiny city but its people and culture will wow you big time! And all of these I experienced because of Buna Trek and of course Rudra. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience, I will be back for sure!
