This was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I chose Nepal Trekking Experts because they are local to Manaslu and because of excellent reviews and everything went wonderfully. Rajesh was a prompt and excellent communicator over email, set me up with a trekking partner who was a great match, met me at the airport, was very hospitable and helpful all the time I was in Kathmandu, organizing gear rental, going out to dinner. Kedar and Resham were our guide and porter and they did an outstanding job- experienced, safe, and also a lot of fun to hang out with. Kedar has over 20 years experience and so much familiarity and local knowledge of the region, knowing best places to stay and eat, less crowded tea houses, safety on the trail, showing us edible plants, and joking with us. Resham also has years of experience, was always looking out for our well-being, prepared fruit for our dessert every evening, was incredibly positive and cheerful, and hardworking- he was also our ‘monastery guide’ and they both were very accommodating of our desire to visit every monastery! We often had fun playing a Nepali card game in the evening and really felt we made new friends. We added on the Annapurna circuit impromptu at the end and they were very flexible and accommodating. The guides helped us get set up in our hotel in Pokhara as well and Rajesh also sent our luggage there. The trek is also stunningly beautiful and culturally fascinating. Overall I wholeheartedly recommend them- a company that really goes the extra mile, is very well organized, professional and supportive. I would definitely trek with them again. Namaste and muri muri dhanyabat to all!
Ons verblijf en de Tsum valley- Manaslu trekking was tot in de puntjes verzorgd. Vooraf was het emailcontact met Rajesh Neupane helder en duidelijk. Hij kwam ons persoonlijk van het vliegveld ophalen en bracht ons naar een fijn Hotel (Dream city) met rustige binnentuin, goede bedden en vriendelijk personeel in de Thamel. Gids Kedar en porter Krishna zijn fijne mensen, altijd opgewekt en met op de juiste tijd de juiste adviezen. We konden echt merken dat Kedar jarenlange ervaring heeft. Nepal trekking Experts is door ons harte aanbevolen!
Wir waren jetzt das zweite Mal mit Rajs Orgnaisation unterwegs und waren wieder sehr zufrieden. Raj hat alles super organisiert, wir mussten uns um nichts Sorgen machen und er antwortet super schnell, wenn man eine Frage hat. Vor Ort hat er auch jederzeit Zeit für einen und man kann immer im Büro vorbei kommen, wenn man eine Frage hat oder Unterstützung bei irgendwas braucht. Unser Guide war zum zweiten Mal Rabin, der sich super um uns gekümmert hat während des Treks. Er hat dafür gesorgt, dass wir uns immer sicher gefühlt haben. Er ist eine angenehme Begleitung und man kann abends wunderbar mit ihm Karten spielen und viel lachen. Außerdem hatte er diesmal sogar Snacks und Äpfel für uns dabei, die uns an so einigen Tagen den nötigen Energieschub für die nächste Etappe gegeben haben.
This was our second time trekking with Nepal Trekking Experts and again we were amazed how wonderful everything turned out. With Rajs organisation everything was taken care of and no question was left unanswered. You can always come by the office if you have any question, need or just need a short break from busy kathmandu. You'll get a drink too. Customer service is paramount with this company. We chose Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek as out honeymoon vacation and were not disappointed. It is definitely different from Manaslu Circuit but will reward you beautiful views of mountains like Jannu & Kanchenjunga. Rabin was out wonderful guide how took care of us and left no need unattended. He is a super fun person to be around with but usually wins when you play cards ;) That's something you should get used to. Also he has reflexes quick as lightning so when you slip he will catch you. I tested this two times :) But as far as i got to know Raj any guide you will trek with is probably the person you where looking for...We will definitely come back. Thank you.
Our group from Belarus consisting of seven people passed the route Manaslu Circuit Trek. It was an unforgettable event. The route is difficult and extremely beautiful! On the morning of October 2, we left a jeep from a hotel to Kathmandu to Barpak, from where the next morning we set off on a wonderful foot journey. On the way, we were accompanied by a guide Kumar and porters Resham and Ramhari. Each day's transition, one of them walked ahead of the group, the other in the middle, and the third closed it, not disregarding any of the participants, no matter how slowly or quickly he moved. They booked places for us to sleep, ordered food, served on the table, cleared the table, provided us with everything we needed along the route. In the days we spent together, we became one family with our Nepali guides. After the end of the walking part of our trip in the village of Dharapani, October 14, we went to Pokhara, and then on October 17 - in Chitwan. Special thanks to the head of the company Nepal Trekking Experts Pvt. Ltd. Mr. Rajesh for the precise organization of our entire journey. He provided us with not only excellent specialists for trekking, but also planned in advance, booked and paid for all our transfers and hotels both before and after tracking, as well as paragliding in Pokhara. We were all pleasantly surprised by the attitude of the whole Nepal Trekking Experts Pvt team to our work. Ltd. Very grateful to all the guys. Definitely recommend.
We are a family of 5 and Could not rate these guys highly enough. Rajesh is a great communicator and goes beyond what is expected to make sure your trip goes smoothly. From Rajesh organising our trip, waiting At the airport for nearly two hours to welcome us into Nepal to taking us out to dinner and finally making sure we were safely back on the plane to go home once our Trek was over. Bikram our fantastic Guide would have to be one of the most experienced guides on Manaslu. We had no problems on our 3 week Trek but if anything had happened you knew that Bikram would handle it. He was lovely with the kids. Our two porters were also marvellous. Gautam who is a character would run ahead in the morning and make sure we got good rooms in a good tea house. In his pare time he was giving locals hair cuts, fixing electrical problems, teaching the kids new card games, he is a man of many talents. Finally the prices nepaltrekkingexperts charge for the Trek is very very good! There are a lot of costs including very high prices for meals as you become more remote. All your trekking permits, meals, transport your guide and porters etc are included in the price. If you want a quality experience don’t go looking for a bargain. At the end of the trip my husband and I thought we should have paid more than we did for our Trek. Finally take cards on your trek and tip your guide and porters well, they deserve it.
