    Epic trek!

    We went on the Pikey Peak trek in October 2019 through Dream Heaven Adventures, and had a fantastic time. Suman put together a brilliant package for us, which included a 7 day trip from Kathmandu, with 5 days trekking. One of the key reasons to us having a fantastic time was down to our guide Kumar. He looked after us very well throughout, from providing interesting nuggets of information on the Nepalese way of life, to finding the most comfortable options in the rural teahouses. His cracking sense of humour and constant upbeatness made the whole trek a fantastic experience. Our porter Buddy was also terrific and very friendly. As well as carrying a bulk of our baggage, he kept the warm drinks coming at the chillier stops!

    One thing to consider, we hadn't quite appreciated how cramped the public jeeps can be in Nepal, which can take it's toll on a long drive! We would suggest reviewing the travel options carefully, or maybe purchasing an extra seat on the jeeps to give that little extra elbow room.

    All round a fantastic trip for us, and would book through Dream Heaven again.
