Excellent trip organisation, planning and advice!
When landing in Kathmandu it can be daunting choosing a travel agent to book your trips due to the vast number of options available in Thamel, so I was relieved when a friend recommended Walk Mountain and Bishnu who was extremely personable and efficient when sorting everything out. He is knowledgable on the best routes and trips that can be made and will tailor everything to your own schedule and requirements.
Throughout the trip he kept in regular contact ensured we were satisfied and happy with how things were going and booked my guide for Poon Hill, Greenline buses, permits, hotel for Pokhara+Chitwan and all without any effort and in minimal time! It really is the best service I have had by an agent and prices were also very reasonable and reflected what we got.
I will be using Bishnu for organising my EBC/ABC trip next year (hopefully I can go to Nepal again!) and now consider him a friend. The only negative is that he is a Chelsea fan !
