Amazing 21 days in Nepal

Amazing 21 days in Nepal

Namaste, My wife and I went recently to Nepal for 22 days. We completed the EBC, visited the Chitwan Park, Pokhara and of course the capital Kathmandu. When one is planning a long, grueling, high altitude trekking trip such as EBC, they have many questions like: all gears, lodges, guide, porter or both, permits, altitude sickness and more... But when we just arrived to Horizon Hotel and we have had the pleasure to meet Mr Ramesh owner of the Nepal Mountain Trekkers agency, all the questions and doubts get its response. Indeed, Mr. Ramesh shows extreme flexibility and speed arrangement for your EBC trekking from getting permits for hiking and porter/guide at the same arrival day to Kathmandu. Moreover, on the same night of my return to Kathmandu from the EBC, Mr. Ramesh arrange for us the next tour trip to Chitwan Park and Pokhara with paragliding and also the bungee jump near the Tibetan border. All this in just within an hour of his making calls, he managed to arrange A-Z tour with all the arrangements needed. I would like really to thank Mr. Ramesh Dhakal from Nepal Mountain Trekkers organized the tour for us. I would highly recommend Mr. Ramesh for his very efficient and professional service. Owner Ramesh is a warmhearted person that listens to your wishes and provides alternatives you probably would not have come up with. In addition, the porter/guide for EBC Mr. Lapa was really professional, respectful and friendly providing even cultural overview of Himalayan Habitant. I was able to capture the spirit of Nepal, creating the most memorable experience that I will never forget. Dhanyabad

Recently completed a trek in the annapurnas, Besisham, Manang, Muktinah, Jomson. Took 11 days. I organised it while in Kathmandu through Nepal Mountain trekkers ( easy to find, office in front of horizon hotel). Ramesh was great giving me a competitive and detailed quote,a lot cheaper than organising back in Australia. All organised on the spot and we left next morning. He even organised my luggage to be transfered to Pokhra. Everything promised was delivered and my porter-guide Krishna was fantastic. I would highly recommend this company.

Ich hab hier mit meiner besten Freundin eine 10-tägige Tour zum Annapurna Base Camp gebucht, sowie einen anschließenden 3-tägigen Aufenthalt in einem Yoga Retreat Center. Die Beratung war ausgesprochen gut. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und stets darum bemüht für die Kunden alles perfekt zu machen. Man fühlt sich sehr willkommen und wohl. Schnell wird hier ein familiäres Verhältnis aufgebaut. Auch die Betreuung vor, während und nach unserer Trekking Tour war wirklich angenehm. Die Tour war gut geplant und es wurden immer wieder Pausen eingelegt, wenn unser Guide gemerkt hat, dass wir kurz verschnaufen müssen. Essen, Hostels und Fahrten wurden gleich mitgeplant, sodass meine Freundin und ich nichts mehr machen mussten und die Zeit dafür umso mehr genießen konnten. Ich kann diesen Ort nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen.

My wife and I with another couple (all in our mid 60s) went on a "Everest Base Camp tour" with helicopter from Air Dynasty. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience seeing the majestic Mt Everest. The helicopter took us to Everest View Hotel for a breakfast stop before going back to the base. Mr Ramesh Dhakal from Nepal Mountain Trekkers organized the tour for us. I would highly recommend Ramesh for his very efficient and professional service.

Our spectacular 7 weeks of trekking was planned, managed and led by Shiva Lal Bhatta who is an exceptional leader and guide. Shiva has boundless energy and a wealth of local knowledge that will ensure that you miss nothing on a trek, stay safe and have a truly wonderful and enjoyable experience. Shiva arranged all food and accommodation for our trek and we wanted for nothing. He made us very aware of altitude sickness and made sure we avoided that. We walked over glaciers, across avalanche areas, across rivers, through historic sites and numerous beautiful villages and temples. It was truly the trip of a lifetime and I can highly recommend Shiva as your guide in Nepal and I cannot believe that he could be bettered. The people we met through Shiva and the spectacular scenery experiences he afforded us will never be forgotten. I must also thank Ramesh for his part in helping us enjoy such an exceptional experience.

On returning home from my trip to Everest base camp, people ask me "how was it?". I always pause and think: "where do I start? The beautiful forests, the wonderful sounds of yak bells, and the things I learnt from my guide Min Nepali. There was so much awesomeness; it's very difficult to convey what happened in the two and bit weeks I had with Nepal Mountain Trekkers. A good start is Nepal Mountain Trekkers organization and friendliness. From the very first contact I made with Ramesh Dhakal there was a good tailoring of the trek to our needs. All matters were well explained and no stone left unturned in Nepal Mountain Trekkers organisation. The adjustment of the holiday to our needs was constant throughout, with our guide Min Nepali was able to change our programmer throughout the trek to adapt to all our wishes. Min acted in a caring and friendly manner throughout the trip. The accommodation was excellent the whole way up the mountain, the food and drinks options were good (and very filling - I now have a new found love for Dal Baht and yak meat!) and there was plenty of opportunity to meet others travelers and have interesting convivial conversation. Our guide, Min became both a friend as well as our guide :) He was extremely knowledgeable about the environment, enlightening us on our trek on mountain eights, Tibetan culture, and plants. Truly a Renaissance man of the Manaslu Himalayas areas I heartily recommend anyone considering a trip the Himalayas find these Nepal Mountain Trekkers team to get the most memorable experiences out of your time!

We had arranged with Ramesh from Nepal Mountain Trekkers to do the Manaslu/Tsum trek as a part camping/part tea house trek. We had had Min (Sanjeev) as our guide before and specifically asked for him to guide us again. The team was very considerate of our needs and our comfort and we were well looked after. There were problems, which were out of their control - the weather was not settled and for the first part of the trek we did not have clear views of the peaks; there had been several landslips which made part of the trek difficult; and the main trail into Tsum valley was destroyed so that it was very difficult to go there. Despite these substantial difficulties, we had a great trek around Manaslu, and found the villages of great interest. They are culturally fascinating and we enjoyed conversations with people we met on trek, specifically Nyima from Gyap and Nyima from Samdo who are involved with development projects in their villages. Look out for solar showers in 2017 in Samdo, which are for the local people but also for trekkers and should raise some money for the community. It is inspiring to see again the resilience of the local people as they re-construct after the earthquake as this area was one of the epicentres of the 2015 earthquake. Crossing the Larkye La was not easy, but stunning and we have to mention Syam, our cook, who popped up unexpectedly at different parts of this walk to hand us drinks and snacks. That lifted our spirits no end! As we had extra time, because we had not been able to go into Tsum valley, we did part of the Annapurna circuit, went to Tilicho Lake, Moon Lake and Ice Lake. Here the weather was kinder and we got perfect views of peaks and blue lakes. As we came down again, we spent a night at Temang and saw the most fantastic sunset on Manaslu from there. Apart from the cook Syam, we wish to comment on Min who again was an excellent guide. When there are difficulties, he told us clearly what these were and involved us with making decisions about what to do. We would ask for him as our guide for a future trek. We also had DB (Dhan Bahadur) as our porter/guide for the Annapurna part and could not ask for a better companion. He is very helpful, and sociable, and very helpful when we found parts of the trails difficult. What could have been done differently? The main thing is that it would have been helpful to find out before the trek that it was difficult to get into Tsum and we could have adjusted plans in Kathmandu and got different permits, for example to Nar Phu instead. The Department of Immigration, who issue the permit for Tsum, should have known that the trail into Tsum was closed and stopped issuing permits - their colleagues based in the villages near the beginning of the Tsum Valley trek had certainly known for a number of days before we were approaching that part of the trek. Also on the Annapurna circuit the ‘road’ is having a significant impact. There is a real need for alternative walking trails to be made, maintained and clearly signposted. The ‘road’ has made it possible for the well acclimatized to visit amazing spots like Tilicho Lake in five rather than fourteen days. This means that the hotels and lodges in Manang and above are becoming overcrowded. Overall, we are very happy with the experience. We'll just have to plan to go back to Tsum Valley another time, and would like to re-visit the high villages of Manaslu, and for a next trek, would plan to incorporate side treks, like walks to the border with Tibet. Thank you to all at Nepal Mountain Trekkers for an excellent trek.

Mindblowing experience!

NMT is a professional agency when it comes to adventure and trekking in Nepal. Owner Ramesh is a warmhearted person that listens to your wishes and provides alternatives you probably wouldn't have come up with. Above that he also takes good care of his personnel and the area you go to. You can choose if you want him to arrange everything on your trip (like food, housing, etc), or that you want some freedom in there. Our preference is in the latter. In dialogue with Ramesh we decided to do the less popular, more adventurous Mardi Himal trekking in the Annapurna Mountain Region. It turned out to be everything an adventurous trekking is supposed to be. Actually, it was even more than that! We left for a 2 week trekking with our porter Amar, who in the beginning was a bit quiet. Later on, he turned out to be a wonderful entertainer and a very considerate person when we needed some extra care. The trekking was an unforgettable experience through the wild, pristine and amazing nature of Nepal, combined with the life in the mountains. The only glitch in the trekking was that sometimes we had a tough schedule for the day and the trekking was meant to reach the next destination. Doing this trekking in more days - slowed down - will provide you to more fully enjoy the beautiful surrounding and breathe the atmosphere. The fact that you stay in quite some places without wifi or electricity really makes you escape the demands and pressures of our wired, western world! A highly recommended experience at a heartedly recommended agency.

I describe our trip to the Mount Everest View point with one word: AMAZING Everything was perfect. During our trek we had the whole time a comfortable feeling. We arrived in Kathmandu and our guide picked us up at the airport and joined us to our hotel. The hotel was beautiful. It is a small paradise inside Kathmandu. We had the feeling like home. (Hotel Horizon Kathmandu) Our trip starts on the next day with a fly to Lukla. The first adventure during our trip. After the arrival in Lukla we start our trek with the target Mount Everest view hotel. The landscape during the whole time was amazing. We need three days to arrive the hotel. During this time we slept in Tea Houses and the organization was blameless. After the arriving we had the perfect view to the Mount Everest. The feeling was amazing during this moment. We had the perfect Landscape with all the great peaks. On the next day we started the trek back to Lukla and flight back to Kathmandu on the next morning. Resume: During the trip we had a comfortable feeling. Everything was perfect. Are you watching for a one week trip with the perfect landscape and the final view to the Mount Everest? Take this trek. But the trek was more than an amazing landscape and the Mount Everest. You can feel the peaceful atmosphere in the mountains of Nepal and you have a lot of contact to the native people. These people are really amazing. Thank you to the Team of Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Thank you to Ramesh and to Bisang .It was beautiful.
