I wholeheartedly recommend Nepal Trekking Experts. I completed a 15-day trek in mid-November 2017 with Nepal Trekking Experts and had an incredible and rewarding experience. When I originally searched for a trekking company, I emailed five different companies, only two of which responded. Rajesh was by far the most responsive and helpful of the two—the choice was obvious almost immediately. HIs support after my arrival in Kathmandu and at the end of the trek were fantastic (airport transportation, dinner at a local restaurant, walking tour of Thamel). My guide (Bikram) and porter (Rijan) were excellent as well. I am incredibly grateful for their support—they were excellent travel companions. Bikram kept me on track (starting with my arrival in Kathmandu), safe and informed, and he was always available when needed. Rijan was always where we needed him—he and Bikram were a great team. Also, Bikram's planning was outstanding. I can't say enough good things about the whole experience.
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...
This was my third trip to Nepal, having done multi day organized treks in Patagonia, Peru and Europe. I have never experience a level of professionalism and a quality of service like the one from Trekking Nepal Experts. We have just returned from a 15 day trek in the Tsum Valley and Manaslu region organized by this company and we could not be happier. It exceeded our expectations by a hundred times. Last year, in 2016 my husband and I trekked the Manaslu Circut with another company (one of the top rated by Trip Advisor). Midway we intersected with a group led by Raj, the owner of the Nepal Trekking Experts . We hiked along with his group for a few days and the contrast, on every level, was striking. So when we decided to return it was an easy choice who to work with. Raj is a native to Manaslu region and hires local guides and porters. As a result you are guided by someone who REALLY knows the area. We did many 'off the beaten path' side trips on our trek. Our guide was really flexible and we modified our itinerary multiple times. The highlight of our trip was hiking up to Ganesh Himal base camp and spending two nights at a nunnery. We did not see another tourist during those three days. treking out we used less popular route to avoid repeating a part of the trek (owners sugestion) we did the year before. Although this was logistically much harder to organize the cost of the trip didn't change, Raj just wanted us to have a better experience, and I think that it captures what this company is all about: making sure that you have the best possible time on your trek! The whole experience was unreal. The owner, Raj manages to blend genuine warmth and friendliness with constant awareness and attention to every detail.
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!
