Reviews

Annapurna Trek - October 2007

In October 2007, I had the great pleasure of doing a trek with Hari and he was a superb guide, friendly, intelligent, extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He was instantly aware of the capabilities of each member of our group and lent a helping hand when necessary. He was well respected by his team of porters and they too were courteous, cheerful and also willing to help in difficult places. The tea-houses were clean and well-chosen. In short, I cannot wait to go back for another trek in October 2008!

Ghorepani Poonhill Trek, 2009

We are delighted to give some feedback on our time trekking in Nepal under the care and guidance of Hari Bhatta and his porters.

As first time visitors to the country of Nepal and its lovely people, we placed ourselves in the capable and caring hands and heads of our local guide Hari Bhatta . We felt completely safe at all times with Hari and his most humble, capable and kind porters, and are privileged to have seen many parts of Nepal in their company.

Hari Bhatta is a natural leader. Aphetically speaking he is a born King - a careful listener who weighs up situations and demands very carefully while keeping the safety and comfort of all always at the fore of his decision making. He is calm and not easily shaken. I trust him with my life.

Know that you are in the best possible care when trekking with Hari Bhatta and his team. My very best.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

“It was a pleasure to work with Hari and his company. It was an excellent introduction to Nepal and people of Nepal. Hari is a very nice guy, well spoken and friendly. He helped my wife and me with good tips about our trek in Annapurna area. I recommend him and his team for treks. They are very professional. We are planning to go back in Nepal for other treks and we will use Life Dream Adventure for our needs there. Before Nepal, Hari Bhatta was just a contact name, now he is a FRIEND. Thank you Hari and see you soon!!! "

“Wonderful experience in Nepal with Life Dream Adventure”

Katmandu – Pokhara – Nagarkot, 10 days tour in Feb, 2013 we are here to thank you very much for our guide Hari and his company – Life Dream Adventure Pvt. He let us had a wonderful trip in Nepal during Chinese New holiday of February 2013. As most of us (7 Ladies) were not the first time to travel to Nepal with Hari’s guidance, he proved again with his reliable and great experience to provide us the suitable itinerary – Katmandu – Pokhara – Nagarkot for 10 days tour. We took Hari’s suggestions with 4 days trekking to Poon hill with enjoyable natural hot spring in Tatopani. It’s fantastic experience. There were great views of snow mountain, sunrise, sunset, friendly village and people throughout the trekking route. We had excellent guidance by Hari and his Porter who are skilled, professional, reliable and great personalities, he also arranged us comfortable accommodation and good meal, which fitted our stomach. He always kept us in safety and health on the whole trips, especially when we were in the mountain, walk with snow covered road etc… We appreciated and highly recommended to travel to Nepal with Hari and Life Dream Adventure pvt. Surely, they will organize your trip perfectly and safely from the beginning to the end. If we plan to visit Nepal again, surely will go with Hari of Life Dream Adventure Pvt. As they are the best.

Everything I imagined and more!

This is the first review I have ever written. I felt inclined to write a review this time because of how flawless my experience was. A friend and I flew to Nepal without any concrete travel plans and we decided to go on a whim and have a last minute trek for 1 week. I found Life Dream Adventure while I was searching domestic flights in Nepal and saw that they provided Treks, tours, flights, all sorts of services. Communication with Hari (Director) was easy and his response time was extremely quick. I left him know how many days we had left in Nepal and he emailed me back with a full itinerary that was planned out without us having to worry about a thing. Transportation, a guide, a route, a porter, meals, accommodations were all taken care of and he emphasized that nothing had to be concrete and that it was just important for us to have a good time. Adjustments to the itinerary were at our will and we took advantage of that and he followed along with plans and helped organize additional plans without us having to worry. No worries with Mister Hari!.

Sabin was our trekking guide and he honestly made our trip in Nepal majestical and life-changing. We didn't know what to expect but the 6 day trek plus city tour days were accompanied by him. He was AMAZING. Sabin took care of us and made us feel very comfortable and safe. When shopping he even bargained for us and got us better deals! From dusk until dawn Sabin took care of our needs, led us along beautiful treks and took the time to explain Nepalese culture, food, manners, and really gave us the full Nepalese experience. Sabin is a true professional and was extremely kind, caring, funny, and read our needs to a "T." Not too overbearing, and not too distant. Everything was JUST right. I could go on and on but have to stop somewhere. So, Hari, Sabin, and Uttam-- thank you for the wonderful memories you have made for us while in Nepal. You will always be remembered!

Ghorepani Trek with Family

Life Dream Adventure was like a family for us in Nepal, they did more than everything to make our Ghorepani Poonhill trek as comfortable as possible. View of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri from Poonhill was superb. Thanks to Shyam for being so friendly and guiding us throughout the trek. Thanks once again ! for the nice time with all of you.

“No worries, with Mr. Hari!”

My friend and I spontaneously decided to go to Nepal and had 1 month to plan our vacation. We decided to just arrive in Kathmandu and then find someone to help us plan our trek and sightseeing tours. Thank goodness we found Mr. Hari with Life Dream! He made the process so simple! All we did was tell him the things we would like to do (trek, sight see, paraglide, etc) and he planned the entire thing. The best part is: he is sooo flexible. On day 2 of our trek we decided to cut it short by a day and spend the extra day in Pokhara, we weren't sure if it was possible since we had already begun our trek. But lo and behold everything was, again, planned for us; he booked our paragliding experience, and our hotel room. We didn't have to worry about a thing! I highly recommend going through this tour company, it'll make your trip stress free. We even made a slogan for him: No worries with Mr. Hari! Thank you, Mr. Hari
