Unforgettable people from Nepal Mountain Trekkers. They will take care of you as the closest friend. Ramesh has provided us with a great guide and Sherpas. Huge respect for Ramesh for professional organization. They will make the impossible possible.

It was another trek in the Himalayas with Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Another great experience. Everything is well prepared, since the arrival to Kathmandu, through flight to Lukla, during trekking. We only have to enjoy the views. If I go to Nepal again, I'm sure it will be trek with Nepal Moutain Trekkers.

Your Nepalese adventure - Your way!

Our first hike in Nepal and it was incredible!

Ramesh organised our itinerary for my husband and I based on the amount of time that we had. This included a personal airport pickup, our return flights to and from Lukla, a guide and porter for us, and also our accomodation in Kathmandu before and after our trek.

We set out planning to get to Tengboche, as our time was limited, but we were able to take it day by day depending on how we were fairing. As we hiked, we thought, this isn't as hard as we thought it would be - let's go further! Our amazing guide named Tika was obliging and set a new route for us mid-hike and we made it all the way to Ama Dablam base camp. Tika was always only a few steps ahead and was happy to tell us the names of all the mountains we could see along the way, the names of trees and plants, and the names of the villages across distant valleys. When we reached our destination each night he was always busy organising our meals, cups of tea, making sure our drink bottles were filled and that we were happy and healthy. He's a very polite, caring and experienced guide (with great english skills) who we'd definitely request for our next Himalayan experience and would certainly recommend to anyone else too.

We cannot express how satisfied and impressed we were with this company; a well run, honest business that really care for the customer's experience and safety. Nepal Mountain Trekkers allowed us to choose our own start and end date and plan the trek each day with no fixed or locked in agenda. This type of flexibility is something that you do not get in large group tours. It was our own private tour without the private tour price.

I had the joy of getting sick the day before we left Nepal and Ramesh organised for my care at a local hospital - complete with sorting our insurance and transfers to and from the hospital. He went above and beyond his duty as hotel manager and trekking company operator - he made a difficult time easier. Both Ramesh and our guide Tika came to the hospital to visit and make sure my health was on the mend.

There are many companies in Kathmandu that can take you on a breathtaking hike; but this one truely has the heart and passion for this exceptional place on Earth. 

We are already planning our next trip to Gokyo Ri with Nepal Mountain Trekkers - We couldn't recommend higher! Nepal Mountain Trekkers 100%

10 daagse trekking gemaakt regio Gokyo. Prachtig gebied. Onze gids TB was erg vriendelijk en actief om alles zo goed mogelijk voor ons te regelen. Ik zou dit bedrijf zeker aanbevelen. Het mailcontact voorafgaand aan onze reis was ook altijd vlot en duidelijk.
