Chewang was easy and efficient to work with. He listened to what we wanted and booked exactly the type of trip and experiences we were looking for - a mix of city/culture, trekking, nature, and some down time. He is the coordinator who meets/greets you throughout the trip to ensure everything is going great. He set us up with 2 excellent guides - one for the city tours who was an expert in the history, culture, etc., and one for the light trekking. If we return to Nepal to do more trekking, I would definitely use Chewang and request the same guides. He kept our schedule flexible so we only booked the helicopter to Everest the night before to ensure the weather would be ok. In speaking to several others who were recently in Nepal - their tours were very fixed and they spent the money on the helicopter without ever seeing Everest. Would definitely recommend Chewang and his guides.

Hotel Review
Aloft Kathmandu

excellent location - walking distance to everything in Thamel so you're not stuck when the guide drops you at the hotel. Friendly staff, Nice gym, indoor pool, decent breakfast buffet and cocktail lounge. Roof deck was closed when we were there. Would highly recommend. We also stayed at the Hyatt Regency our last night (closer to airport) but the Aloft was far superior. Only odd thing was the bathroom setup - no door to the sink area so if sharing a room it's impossible to get up and get ready without disturbing your travel companion.
