Having spent 7 days with tourist link treks, I can honestly say that it was one of the most enjoyable, memorable life experiences I have ever had. It was my second time in Nepal and decided to go on a trekking/ jungle safari expedition. Wild is not the world. Although at times it was difficult and exhausting, I have n regrets in making the decision.
Last time I used tourist link treks services I took a tour around Tibet, which was out of this world. The service of the tour guides and their expertise knowledge of the areas we covered was amazing, and the team of people I was with was equally as great. Which is why I decided to use tourist link trek again for my next Nepalise adventure.
Since I had such a fun time on the last trip I decided to stick to trekking, and I’d heard from a friend of mine that the jungle safari was something that I would have really enjoyed. And they certainly were not wrong! I enjoyed every minute of it, and got some of the most amazing pictures I have ever taken. We rode on elephants for the duration of the time and came across wild like left right and center. Never have I been so close to these wild beings without there being some kind of cage, but being on top of an elephant I guess is the next safest thing lol..
So the safari was followed up AFTER the 25 days of trekking in Kanchenchunga, which as you can imagine was very tiring, but certainly enjoyable. The fresh air there was so nice, but my feet certainly payed the price. I had unfortunately acquired some rather large blisters on my right foot but carried on non the less. But let’s just say that I was relieved to spend the last part of the trip riding around on the back of an elephant lol..
All in all though I wouldn’t trade the experience I had with the team for anything! The people, the weather, the scenery was just simply amazing, and I feel that there are many more fun filled adventures to have with tourist link treks in the coming years, and I can’t wait!

Having always fantasized about visiting Tibet, I decided recently to make my wish a reality. Having visited Nepal before and done some different treks with different trekking companies, I stumbled across Tourist Link Treks & Expedition (P.) LTD. A friend of mine had recommended them as being the cheapest most reliable tour company out of many others, and since I valued his judgment greatly I decided to give them a shot. Well, I certainly was not disappointed to say the least. I couldn’t believe the quote I got from them with everything included. It was nearly half the price! Of what I’d plan to budget for. At first the offer sounded abit too good to be true, but going with my gut instincts, my friends advise and the warm friendly reception I was greeted with other the phone with them, I decided to go for it. The tour consisted of a direct flight to the neighboring mountains, and a trek around the peaks of the Tibetan peaks. I knew I was amongst one of the wonders of the world where I was and had my camera on stand by to capture some of the most breath taking shots I have ever taken. There where moments where time just seemed to stand still, where the wild life seemed so in balance with its surroundings that we appeared to blend into their eco system. No fear, no negative vibes, just being, for as far as the eye could reach. A translucent depiction of what life is supposed to be like, or how it once was. Something was telling me, ‘this is how its supposed to be’
When your amongst such beauty, caught in a realm of timelessness, it is easy to get lost in what it is your doing. And when the hand on my shoulder was softly felt by the guide, it was back to reality I stumbled to.

My hasband and i am from Germany , we booked the poonhill trek with Tourist Link Treks . Our guide Elmi was really great , he told us lot of about Nepali culture , the life in the hills and about the Flora and Fanna . He cared a lot about us and always went into the Kitchens in the tea houses where we stoped to eat and drink to check whether everthing  was clean and well prepared .
Compared to the other guide , Elmi was really well prepared and equipment after the 4th day . I went sick and Elmi gave me medicine and managed to shorten our trip . He even carried my backpack when i was very weak . All we were very satisfied with our guide and the trek .
