Well managed and creditable company
I decided to fly to Nepal to trek the Himalayas without much prior research, I stayed at Hotel Florid after seeing other reviews advising that the manager Dipak was knowledgeable about the mountains and hiking options etc. This turned out to be true and I booked a 2 week Langtang Gosaikunda Lauribina Pass Trek on his recommendation. I had a few days before it started so also booked a city tour of KTM temples and day trek to Jamacho. All my excursions were great fun and I really liked all the guides provided. My guide Yam on Lang tang was very experienced, looked after me and made me feel safe as a solo female traveller. On my return to the hotel I even booked a 4th trip with the company to Chitwan which again was a lot of fun and well organized.
