We discovered Freedom Adventures accidentally when looking for a place to stay in Pokhara. We discovered the attached Hotel Simrik where the staff were warm, welcoming and kind. When we spoke to them about wanting to do some trekking they were nothing like the other agents we had met and instead of trying to sell us something and offering ‘bargain prices’ Ajay spent time talking to us through different options and what we wanted. We immediately felt safe and comfortable as they were so thorough and had thought of everything. What was even more impressive was that after booking at 11am we were able to leave the next day.

We booked the 5 day Ghoripani/Poon Hill circuit.In the evening before the Trek we met our guide Nirmal. I feel that we couldn’t have been luckier, he was a truely fantastic guide. From the moment we met him he put us at ease and talked us through everything we needed, helping us to prepare. During the trek he was quickly able to identify our different strengths and weakness’s as well as learning about our interests. He had so much knowledge of the area he was able to teach us lots about the areas we were walking through. He was so supportive and kind and had considered so many details, such as the view we would have from our rooms, or lunch spots. He is really is an amazing guide i would recommend to anyone.

Since returning from our Trek we decided to stay at Hotel Simrik for the rest our time in pokhara, as the team here are so friendly and helpful they have made it feel like home, I feel we have got to know them and they are such kind and friendly people- this (this the Freedom Adventures team). We have had chance to talk to different guides and they are so friendly and have helped us with all our stupid questions. Any of them would be great to go Trekking with im sure and I would recommend anyone who wants a great trekking experience book with these guys. I’m already planning my next one!

Thank you so much to Nirmal and the whole team at Freedom adventures for making this trip so memorable!
