Trip to NepalIt was such an amazing experience. Our driver Pravin was very kind, helpful and keep us safe during the tour. The staff of our hotels was so kind, welcoming, cheerful and respectful. Vikram, Suyog, and the rest of the team in Hotel Temple Inn in Kathmandu were so helpful, full of energy. Bravo to them
Trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - DarjeelingStarted with a ride from bagdogara to Gangtok. Scenic ride with teesta river travelling with you by side for most of journey. Ride to Nathula pass covering Tsomgo lake where we had different life time ride on a yak in rain and We covered Baba mandir too. Next day was a local sightseeing trip covering Monastery, waterfalls etc. Started to Darjeeling same day and checked into hotel late night. Next day started with very early going to Tiger hills at 4 AM to watch picturesque sunrise on Kanchenjunga hills. Post that , local sightseeing covering peace Pagoda, tea gardens etc. Started to airport, on the way covered India Nepal border and Nepal pasupathi market is providing cosmetics at unimaginable cheap rates (hope Indian women is not aware of this ;) .. just kidding). Overall it's a lifetime experience which will be close to my heart. Only Cons I find in the trip are: Some drivers are rash, so be careful. Landslides is a common word here, it may upset trip sometimes. During monsoon, paragliding and ropeway is closed due to weather. Ride to Nathula pass , a place for patriotism and natural beauty is exceptional. Sunrise watch at Tiger hills cannot be expressed in words.

Trip to NepalIt’s our first time visiting to Nepal with Ashirwad Tour & Travels. I truly do not have the words to express the amazing vacation that was planned for us by this travel agent and his staff. Few things command more respect than hard work, integrity, dedication and the ability to follow through. These are among the many attributes we experienced from start to finish when organizing our trip to Nepal with this travel agent. This travel agent is an excellent listener and pays attention to detail; a lost quality in today’s world. Although our itinerary took us to different cities. The drivers was all skilled and reliable and the vehicles were always clean. Safety was never a concern. Selecting a travel agent and advisor can be frustrating and even dicey at times. Not in this case. We could not be more pleased with every component of our adventure and must give this agent, the Ashirwad tour travels, the highest marks possible. Thank you!!!
