Dos años después de hacer con Raj el EBC y los tres pasos volví nuevamente con el para subir el Mera Peak. Ni se me ocurrió buscar otra agencia: no era necesario, con Raj estaba en buenas manos. Al igual que dos años antes todo fue perfecto: disfrute del trek, del día de aproximación al campo de altura, de la subida nocturna a la cima, del berrido que pegue cuando hice cumbre, de los momentos de sufrimiento y de los que fueron relativamente suaves... Porque los que subimos montañas sabemos lo que se sufre haciéndolo y también disfrutamos con ello. Y por supuesto igualmente disfrute tomando una cerveza con Raj en su oficina celebrando que lo había conseguido. Algo que como ya he comentado valoro sobremanera: Raj es un profesional serio en cuanto a la gestión del trek se refiere, pero después es una persona con quien tomarse una cerveza y brindar por todo lo brindable. Gracias Raj, volveré...
I started my base camp with a tour guide with the the Nepal Trekking experts, named Raj. This guy is arguably someone that i would most importantly consider a friend and tour guide. For the majority of the time, he spent everything with a customer who was not physically capable of making it to base camp, however he reassured her and made sure she made it to the end and as an end result she was unbelievably grateful. This to me was impressive, given going to base camp is not the cheapest in journey in the world. Even though the trip is a total of 12 days walking, he made it feel like a walk in the park :) I'm not the biggest fan of giving reviews, however Raj considers people like family, not as a customer - he is extremely customer service focused and takes his job extremely seriously. I was lucky enough to meet his family, (including his wife and children) and confirm he is a true gentleman. If you ever go to Nepal, i highly recommend Raj - a man with a big heart and knowledge of the himalayan mountains that are greater than you can imagine. Thanks, Iain
Namasté! Me and my friend did the amazing Manaslu Circuit Trek with our guide Rabin, the brother of Rajesh. Rajesh planned our trip from Kathmandu and it was clear that he did a great job, as we had the best rooms in the lodges and that both Raj and Rabin are very well-known and liked by the locals, which just made the trek even more amazing! We had some tough days and some easy days all together adding up to a lifechanging experience. I will definetly be back for a new adventure with these guys and I will recommend you to do the same!!
We couldn't have been happier with our experience trekking the Manaslu circuit with our amazing guide Dalgit. The company was very professional and able to quickly adapt to extenuating circumstances such as the spontaneous national holiday on the day they needed to get our hiking permits. Dalgit is the best guide we've used anywhere in the world - kind, thoughtful, and patient, while strong, adventurous, and willing to go the extra mile. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area around Manaslu that he grew up in and generous in sharing his insights on Nepalese culture and history. Thank you for sharing this adventure of a lifetime with us!
I had traveled to Nepal as a young backpacker 25 years ago and always wanted to return. Fast forward to to 2016 and I finally made it back with my 22 year old son Josh. Raj was recommended to me be a number of happy customers. I worked with Raj in the weeks prior to travel, and he made all the preparations with ease. My son and I completed the manaslu circuit , and we would like to highly recommend our guide Rabin Neupane. Raj organised everything for our trip and provided Rabin as our Guide. Rabin the younger brother to Raj, has been guiding in the region for many years and his english and knowledge was excellent. Over the 2 weeks Rabin ensured we were always safe all our needs were looked after. He become a great friend to my son and I and the nightly card games a highlight!! Manaslu basecamp was a extra bonus on a perfect day. A big thank you to Rabin our guide, Raju our porter and Raj for everything. We will be back soon.
I went trekking with 1 friend in October 2016. I don't Think we were sure of what exactly we had signed up for, but after finishing The trek, we had No doubt That The trek was The most amazing, hard, challenging, beautiul and life-changing few weeks, we have and most likely Ever will experience. The owner of The company, Raj, picked us up from The Airport, made sure we had a hotel and showed us the best places to eat, and invited us over for tea/to chat at his Office every single day. We Met our guide Bikram The first or second day in Kathmandu, and he was a bit shy at first, but as we talked more and more, he opened up, and he is one of The most joking/happy people I have ever Met. He helped us get The last few items before our trek, and helped us pack our stuff properly. During The trek he told us Many amazing stories about himself, hos family and also from his past treks. He was 100% professional when he had to be, had amazing knowledge of the trek itself, and had hundreds of tips for us during our trek and things to be careful of. He would almost always stay behind us, to make sure we would not get lost, and was there to encourage us and give us a small push, when we needed it the most. Raj made sure to help us throughout our entire month stay in nepal. So after trekking Manaslu for two weeks, he helped us from our trip to Chitwan national park, transportation throughout nepal, our bungee-jump, invited us home to meet his family, and literally any problem/thought we had, he would help us... and expect nothing back. Trekking was amazing, but The people behind The Company are twice as amazing. They made sure to do everything, for us to have a Good stay in nepal. Much love to you and your family Raj and Bikram! I miss you and hope we Can meet again in The future. Oscar
