We couldn’t have asked for anything more from our experience with Saras Travels. Jeevan is incredibly accommodating, friendly and helpful. He was able to answer all our questions about different activities and treks based out of Pokhara. He has great connections with local trekking guides and guesthouses to stay while were trekking. He coordinated all of our trekking permits and connected us with our amazing guide, Mr Padam for our 5 Days trek around Ghorepani-PoonHill-Ghandruk in Annapurna Region, which we did recently on 15 to 19 August 2017. Padam was very knowledgeable of the trails and the local culture, plants and wildlife. We had an absolutely lovely trek and next time we are in Nepal we will be sure to book with Saras Travels.
We are a couple of Spaniards in the middle 30’s and we went to Nepal in March of 2018. While visiting the country we stayed some days in Pokhara and wanted to do some trekking. We visited few companies of trekking in Pokhara and after speaking with Jeevan we had no more doubts. We would do our trekking in Pokhara with Saras Travel.
In our time in Nepal we had known many nice people and made exciting activities, but the trek with them was one of the most beautiful experiences we had in our travel.
We had to say that Jeevan is a very good conversationlist. He was very polite and assured that everything was good for us. In fact, we felt like Jeevan was a kind of our Nepali father, taking care of us.
Speaking about the trek, we chose an easy spending one night in the Australian Camp; our guide was Yogi. Yogi guided us along the trail and was always opened to tell us things and answer all our questions about every kind of things. We saw the sunrise in Sarangkot and walked near the Annapurna conservation camp, ate with locals and we also saw a Nepali wedding!
Awesome time with Yogi and Jeevan, we only had words of gratitude for them.
If you are in Pokhara and want to do some travel adventures, go to Saras Travel and speak with Jeevan. You would have a very nice time with them.
Jeevan at Saras Travel was the most helpful of numerous travel agents I dealt with in my time in Nepal. He was friendly and very keen to ensure we got what we wanted. There was no ‘hard sell’ or pushiness you can get with some agents. Plus there was always a cup of tea on offer!
Outstanding, highly personalised service. Provided excellent advice over a cup of tea, and quite unexpectedly met us on a street corner early in the morning to ensure we hopped on the right bus. Jeevan is a great guy. Highly recommended.
We would like to thank you very much for helping us to spend lovely time on Poon Hill trekking and travelling comfortably to Kathmandu by plane. We would like to thank you in particular for the extraordinary care for us during the trekking. We truly appreciate your competent advice, organisational skills and the friendly attitude that provided us with full satisfaction and security.
We wish you successes in running your business and happiness in your personal life. Please forward also our thanks and best wishes to Ram. Thanks to his hard work as a porter and guide, we could spend holidays that will stay in our memory for a long time.
We totally enjoyed our trek arranged by Jeevan at Saras Travel, Pokhara. All we had initially was a desire to see the Mustang Valley and also do some trekking that gave us Annapurna views up close. We realised that we had neither the time or stamina to walk the whole route.
Jeevan listened patiently, gave advice that helped us firm up our ideas, then put together a personally customised combined trek/drive package at an irresistible price.
Once agreed he promptly arranged all the logistics and permits necessary with very little effort on our part…all done while he also served delicious black tea and made us feel at home in his office.
We did a 5 day trek from Nayapul to Tatopani through unexpected beautiful forest and past waterfalls taking in stunning mountain peaks up close. Expertly guided by Padam…a real gentleman of good humour. Then met by Kesh who drove us safely up to Muktinath and back to Pokhara over 7 days, patiently meeting all our requests for photo stops, walks, accommodation and meals. The Mustang Valley has incredible landscapes…feels remote and untamed.
Thanks also to Jeevan’s recommendation we spent time in Lumbini and visited Buddha’s birthplace on the way to Varanasi.
Thanks again Jeevan…miss your tea, pleasant chat and music. A pleasure to do business with you.
Given took the time to organize a great trekking trip, as well as an overland tour of various historical sights in the region. I highly recommend Saras travel for all your travel adventure needs.
