…. I had THE best travel agent (Authentic Adventures Pvt. Ltd.) and tour guide in all of Nepal. They are wonderful people and have become good friends of mine. If anyone is ever interested in doing a trip like this, Bhuwan Shrestha is the perfect travel agent. He does various things in Nepal including: trekking tours, rafting tours, jungle safaris, and tours to other countries. He even took us out to dinner on our last night! Polite, genuine and kind, Bhuwan is a great man. I would recommend him to anyone.
If you plan on trekking, ask for the best guide, Bibek Gurung! Bibek is the most accommodating and hospitable person I have ever met! I hope to travel back to Nepal and use Bibek as a tour guide again.

Thank you very much for the excellent Langtang experience. We had such an amazing time! The scenery was unbelievable – especially the views from Kyanjin Ri & the hairy walk to Gosainkunda lakes. We could not speak more highly of Buddhi – our guide and Prabin & Dipak – our porters. They were heaps of fun and exceptionally professional. We were challenged but never felt in danger during the trip and noted how easy it was having Bhuwan ( Authentic Adventures) who organized the trip and tailored it to meet our needs. We loved getting involved in the culture and learning ali - ali Nepalese from our super cool guide Buddhi. We would certainly recommend it to anyone. In particular, the view from Lauri Binayak at sunset is a must! We are already planning our next trip.
Thanks for a great trip !

From the moment I first made contact with Bhuwan via email I knew we’d made the right decision & we’d be well taken care of. When we arrived in Kathmandu, Bhuwan was waiting & for our next 20 days in Nepal we knew we could relax and enjoy the trekking experience as everything had been planned perfectly. During our 17 day trek we requested to finish a day earlier & so our itinerary was changed to include a day to beautiful Poon Hill. Authentic Adventures were so accommodating & nothing was a hassle. We had an amazing knowledgeable guide Buddhi & a kind & respectful porter Suleman who made our trip the memorable experience that it was. There is so much of Nepal that we still want to explore & when the opportunity to return arises we will be using Bhuwan & Authentic Adventures.
We had an incredible experience & would be willing to recommend Authentic Adventures to anyone.

I have known Bhuwan since 2004, and he is an excellent guide and he offers outstanding service. He is so knowledgeable about Nepali culture and trekking, and he explains things so clearly. I always learn so much when I'm around him. Further, he goes out of his way to make sure that you have a wonderful adventure. I highly recommend Bhuwan and his company. I have recommended many individuals to Bhuwan for their trekking adventurers, and I always hear how pleased these individuals are that they hired Bhuwan.

I went on a fantastic Trek to the Annapurna Sanctuary with Bhuwan's company Authentic Adventures in March 2014. His guide Buddhi was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable, and I felt that the trek was worth every dollar and more. Bhuwan and Authentic Adventures come highly recommended.
