I am glad that we chose and trusted Peregrine Treks. It was our first trek in Nepal and choosing a company took us time and some researchb. Through reviews, we found out about Peregrine Treks and enquired. Pradip, the CEO of the company, helped us right from the start by matching activities within the trip so that they best suited as per our expectation and requirement.

We decided to do the Khopra Ridge and Khayer Lake trek. The views en route, of the mountains of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri and of sunrise and sunset from Khopra ridge and Poonhill were no less than breathtaking.

We want to thank Peregrine Treks and the team for the wonderful experience in Nepal.
