“Amazing trip with a most lovely guide”
Ritu is one of the most amazing and lovely ladies I've met in my three months time in Nepal. She took me to trek in the Annapurna region and was not only knowledgeable about the mountain area but also a person I could totally trust and I could even see as a friend. She definitely made my experience a lot more memorable. Thank you Ritu, and keep up the good work. I'm already looking forward to meeting you again!

“Annapurna! Fabulous Trek, Great Guide”
I highly recommend trekking with Ritu. When I was planning my Nepal trip I specifically sought a woman guide. Fate brought me Ritu. It was a deeply memorable trip -- and Ritu, with her subtle sense of humor, knack for anticipating my needs, language skills, and in-depth understanding of the culture, was an essential voice among the voices of the spectacular landscape. I learned firsthand about local village life, her life growing up in the country, and the struggles of so many, especially women, in Nepal. I was honored to witness her brave choice to chart a path for personal independence as she charted the path of our amazing trek. Read "The Snow Leopard" by Peter Matthiessen while you're there.

“The best way to see Nepal”
It's hard to come by a female guide in Nepal, especially Kathmandu. Thankfully Ritu has the foresight, energy and intelligence to tackle this lack issue and she provides a great insight into Nepal, it's culture and traditions, for groups, couples and solo travellers like me who wanted to get off the beaten track for a few days.
When I met Ritu I immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. No question was too big or too small. Ritu devised an itinerary based on what I said I wanted to see and do around the Kathmandu Valley. We caught local buses everywhere and made up accommodation as we want, rather than pre organising everything before we Thamel. At all times, Ritu was also looking out for me, making sure I was comfortable and explaining her culture and traditions as we walked through villages.
Ritu cares deeply for her country and for her fellow country women and has many plans on the horizon to further their development.
I highly recommend that you spend a few days with Ritu - you won't be disappointed!

“Great Experience in Nepal!”
My husband and I visited Nepal on June 8th through 10th, that's right after the earthquake and we had an amazing time in Nepal! Ritu organized an amazing trip for us! We had an awesome driver (very safe, picked us up quickly, and very prompt) and we were in by far one of the nicest cars we saw on the street. The guide she set us up with, Dip Chandra Kalaika, was amazing as well! He answered all of our questions (my husband is a professor and asks TONS of questions), had great English, and was very personable. He knew his history and was very kind and took us to all of the sights we wanted to see, even the ones that weren't included in our set tour. We also took the mountain flight on Yeti air and I would highly recommend taking the mountain flight as it is an up close and personal view with the Himalayas!
We only had 2 and half days in Nepal and we went on to tour India. Looking back, we really wish we had more time in Nepal! Although there was some damage in Nepal, it was NO WHERE NEAR as bad as the media has played it up to be! The best way you can support the country after the earthquake is going for a visit as so much of their economy depends on tourism.
Overall, we had a fantastic trip to Nepal and Ritu did a great job organizing our stay! We look forward to going back and doing some trekking!
