The combined trip to both Nepal and Bhutan is truly an amazing experience. From reception upon arrival and in between journey are all smoothly executed

Special thanks to the very patient and friendly guide Nr Madan Gurung and Mr Hari for a breathtaking ABC trekking and also the ever friendly guide Pema Tashi for the Bhutan trip. Bhutan gives an impression of a mystical feel of granduer of its monasteries and beauty of its people and evergreen and clean environment. A not to be missed is the Tiger’s Nest Temple in Paro before a flight back to Kathmandu

Many thanks again to Mr Keshab and his team for their excellent, friendly and reliable service

Would highly recommend Index Adventure to take care of all your travelling needs to Nepal/Bhutan

Probably The Best Guide In Nepal


Keshab was our guide in 2008 for the Annapurna Circut Trek. He was friendly, funny and always made us feel welcome in each village we passed through. The communication between him and the tea house owners was positive and made our time spent there so much more valuable than has we been without a guide. He cares about his country very much and I left Nepal with dreams of returning to see Everest Base Camp and Index Adventure will be my choice of guiding outfit! Thanks, Keshab and hope to see you soon!

How much should I tip my guide and porter?

Tips are appreciated by your support team after the trip. The amount depends on your budget and appreciation of their work. Some trekkers give 10% of the total tour cost as tips. This is absolutely your choice, make the best of it. Only you can decide this.
