    From May 8 to May 16 2014 my husband and I had the pleasure of visiting Darjeelig and the Singalila national park under the guidance of Mr Fabian Tamang. We went on a six-day trek with the mountain views at Sandakphu as the main attraction. With Fabian as a guide nothing is impossible. He chooses the best co-workers, arranges Everything to the best and is very responsive to both visible and not so visible requests from his guests. We warmly recommend anyone thinking of visiting this area to use the services of Farouttrek and especially of Fabian. Many thanks from Anette and Torbjörn from Sweden!

    Thanks to Farout Trek (Fabian and the team) for a very enjoyable and successful trek in the Singalila National Park. The pace was good,
    the views of the Himalayas obviously stunning, and the support and help was always professional and thoughtful.
    The trekkers huts were very basic with little heat, so Fabian providing hot water bottles at night was always appreciated.
    He also had a few extra goodies in his pack that were produced at exactly the right time.
    I picked Farout Trek because after sending e-mails to them and 7 other places, their reply was prompt (next day),
    was addressed it to me personally, and most important, it answered my questions, so I knew
    someone (Fabian) had actually read the e-mail, rather than just sending a standard response. Would recommend Farout Trek to any one planning to visit Sikkim, Darjeeling
    Nepal or Bhutan Himalayas.

    Cheers and all the best for 2018

    This was our first trip to the North-east and the entire trek (Sandakphu) was extremely well organized. The trekkers hut and the other places we stayed were as good as they can be in those conditions. The tour guide, Fabian is extremely knowledgeable about the mountain ranges that were in view. Amazing views..far away from everything and this is something I promise to do regularly. Take a break..step away
    The views aside..the food was a close second

    Thanks a ton.
