    Alternation to the Itinerary

    In Nepal sometimes even the best laid plans can come unstuck for reasons beyond our control. Therefore the tour and trekking itinerary is subject to change without prior notice. On the chance that this does occur, a suitable replacement activity will be found. 

" Dolma Treks covered all aspects of my dream trip: hotels, logistics, food, permits.
Tsering Lama is a very seasoned trip organizer and guide that knows the way things work locally, which means a hassle-free, pure joy adventure. I have traveled to Nepal 5 times so far, always with Dolma Treks. Have done a bit of everything: culture, trekking, yoga retreat, educational visits, rescue visits (Earthquake 2015). I have been solo, with friends, and even with my young son since he was 7. Everything was perfect, every single time.

I loved every second of my trips to Nepal and I simply can't wait to be back"
