We first reached out to Rajesh @ Nepal Trekking Experts more than 6 months before our intended trek and he did everything possible to accommodate us and was always prompt and responsive with his replies. My friend and I have a lot of solo trekking experience and aren’t used to having a guide (which is currently required on the Manaslu Circuit) so we were worried how that would play out. Turns out that we didn’t need to worry. Our guide, Binod, was attentive and read us well. He was around when we needed him, but not under foot if we didn’t, and In addition to his experience, he was also just a really good guy with a wealth of knowledge who modified our trek on the fly to suit our needs, while still making sure we ended on time. I highly recommend these guys and will not hesitate to contact them for my next trekking experience in Nepal.
We were a group of 4 here in Nepal for the first time. We are trying to do the Annapurna Circuit trek and I contacted Rajesh. He was very helpful and prompt with the responses and very amenable to our requests. The guide, Kedar, and two porters, Kumar and Reesom, were an amazing team. They really took great care of us during the entire trip. Kedar was funny and friendly and we became very close to him and the rest of the team. We make sure we have our food first before they eat themselves, they make sure we have everything we need, taking care to check the rooms before we leave to make sure we didn't leave anything behind. We played cards while resting in the hotels. When one member of our group was having trouble going up to Thorong La, Kumar was very very helpful by carrying his pack for him, walking closely behind him to make sure he is okay. When we had extra days because we were ahead of schedule, Kedar was very good and flexible and brought us to places that were not in our original itinerary. We were able to check out Ghorepani and Poon Hill because of this. We really enjoyed their company and their attention for our well being. I would highly recommend Kedar our guide, Kumar and Reesom our porters, and the company run by Rajesh.
Two friends and I were doing the Annapurna Base Camp trek and from home we were recommended to trek with Rabin. We talked a lot with Rabin over e-mail before we actually went to Nepal, and he was more than willing to answer all of our questions and to give us the information that we needed. When we arrived in Kathmandu airport Rabin were there to pick us up, and he took us to a nice hotel in the city. During the trek Rabin has been extremely helpful whenever we needed something or asked for something, patient, funny, and good at telling us about the trek we were doing. I don't think that we could ever have wished for a better guide than Rabin, and we miss him now that we don't see him every day. Later on we did a shorter (3 days) trek in the Kathmandu Valley with another guide named Bhoj. Bhoj was also a very talented guide, and like Rabin, very good at English. Bhoj knew a lot about all the nature that we walked past, and he was good at making us try some locale wine and fruits while doing the trek. All in all we had an amazing experience with Nepal Trekking Experts, and I would definitely recommend them!
I started chatting with Rajesh through Facebook and he came across as very customer-centric and trustworthy. He never assumed or pressured me into getting anything - instead always clarifying and asking me very detailed questions. I felt that his quote was very reasonable as well. It is also to be noted that he has a true passion for trekking in the Manaslu Region. We arrived in KTM pretty late into the night but he still provided a pretty comfortable ride to our hotel. The next day, he briefed us on how our trek would go, in lots of detail. He helped us with getting our gear and getting our NPRs as well. Our guide for the trek was Thakur (Dandapani) Neupane, whom I felt was kind and amicable. He was kind enough to let us stay at his home in a village near Arkhet Bazaar. He took very good care us throughout the whole trip. Thakur also assisted us in navigating some dangerous areas during the trek. In short, it was a great experience and would wholeheartedly recommend Nepal Trekking Experts to anyone wanting to go on a guided trekking trip in Nepal.
I trekked the Manaslu Circuit at the end of February 2018 as a couple with Rabin as a guide. We had a really great experience. The organisation was perfect from the beginning to end. Rajesh, who runs the office in Kathmandu, picked us up from the airport and brought us to our guesthouse. We felt welcome from the first moments in Nepal. Rajesh explained everything to us, took take the necessary permits, helped us with shopping in Kathmandu and even organized the transport of our luggage from Kathamandu to Pokahara (where we ended our trek). Rabin was a perfect guide. Nice, calm, good english and knows the area by heart. We even stayed at this family place the first night of the trek, which was a great experience. The price for the trek is also reasonable. Overall, I can highly recommend Nepal Trekking Experts and especially Rabin as a guide!
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.
