    Balthali Hiking/Pokhara-Chitwan Trip

    Rating:

    I did a three day Balthali hike and a separate trip to Chitwan and Pokhara with Good Vibes Adventure. Kishan did an excellent job organizing the trip and meeting our needs. He is very responsive to any concerns or questions you might have about the trip, which makes it easier for us to book the trip. My friend and I, found our tour guide Dilip very friendly and considerate during our Balthali trip that we requested him for our trip for Pokhara-Chitwan as well. I might be planning to come back in May and I will definitely use Good Vibes Adventure again.
