    Our first correspondence with Regulus Treks took place almost two months before we set our foot in Nepal. It turned out to be one of the best decisions we have made. Right from the email correspondence to our arrival, treks and departure, the team at Regulus Treks made sure that our comfort and experience were never compromised. Our group comprised of a few friends, all but one of whom were first time visitors to Nepal. Along with the thrill and excitement of exploring unknown terrains, some of us also had few anxious moments. We had planned well in advance so we wanted to choose the best season to explore the Everest Region. We established our first contact with Ms Ruby from Regulus Treks. We couldn’t have hoped for a better guidance. She was the one who suggested we choose the month of October for trekking along some of the most popular routes in Nepal. Nepal is surprisingly rich in natural diversity for a country of its size. So the best months to trek may differ according to the altitude and geography. Since we had decided on Everest Region Trekking we landed in Nepal at the beginning of October. Regulus has recruited some of the most hospitable people. Ever since we landed at Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu, Regulus Treks took complete care of our total needs, queries and doubts. We were quite surprised that we had got one of the most reasonable, if not the best trekking package while we had booked with Regulus. As such, we had lingering thought that service may be compromised in some way. On the very first day, all such misgivings were removed when we witnessed the genuine care and concern of the people at Regulus. Our trek started once we landed at Lukla Airport. The weather, the views,the fun and camaraderie that we shared among us and with our guides will live with each of us forever. Everest Region is blessed with one of the most beautiful landscapes and it was simply amazing to make your through the trails while some of the biggest mountains of the world stood behind you, as if watching your back. The mountains were formidable yet beautiful, the terrain unknown but friendly. Our guides added so much more to our experience. They had in depth knowledge about the whole of the Everest/Khumbu region and the mostly friendly, cheerful and helpful way of dealing with their clients. We couldn’t have had as much fun during our stay in Nepal without the great service that Regulus Treks provided us. Nepalese are friendly people by nature. Regulus Treks has blended this friendliness with professionalism. We are more than happy to refer them to any visitors to Nepal who want to get the most affordable trekking packages, with the best hospitality and service.
