My partner and I just completed the Nar Phu Valley trek with Nepal Trekking Experts and we can say without a doubt that they helped make our trip the amazing experience that it was. Our only regret is that we didn't do a longer trek haha! From the very beginning of communication, Rajesh made sure that we were taken care of before we even got to Nepal, coordinating everything with us so that we would set when we arrived and after the trek was over. He made us feel extremely welcomed and made sure that we felt prepared before the trek began.
We cannot say enough about our guide, Mohan and our porter, Gautam. They were absolutely phenomenal. The trek was not an easy one with long days and steep climbs but these guys took such good care of us and made every hiking day so much fun that we could forget about the difficulty. You spend a lot of time with your guide and porter on treks like this that are so remote so its important that you can have a good and fun time with them - and we definitely did! Aside from how much fun they were - Mohan was extremely professional and it was extremely obvious that he knew what he was doing. Also when my boyfriend started showing signs of altitude sickness, Mohan took care of the situation so that everyone would be safe, happy and set up for success in the days to follow - which we were! When we come back to Nepal one day we are definitely asking for Mohan and Gautam again :P
The hike itself is mind blowing. Its remote, untouched and authentic. You also go through so many different types of landscapes - every day is different. We would recommend this trek for anyone looking for a real adventure. And we would recommend Nepal Trekking Experts to anyone that wants to do it. We can't thank them enough for the incredible experience they helped us have!
Had a wonderful experience with Nepal Trekking Experts. We'd never hired a guiding service before, usually preferring to explore on our own, and were a bit concerned that it might be an awkward, or uncomfortable experience having both a guide and porter helping us out. Turns out our concerns were completely unwarranted.
Rabin and Gautam were wonderful companions on a trek that finished in rather ... interesting ways. We chose to do the Khopra Trek because it was a 'less travelled' route into the Annapurna Sanctuary. When we reached the high point of our trek, five days in at Khopra Danda, we got the news that many countries were starting to close their borders due to the coronavirus, and if we didn't get to Kathmandu asap we might not be able to leave Nepal. In difficult hiking conditions (snow & ice at Khopra Danda and a steady rain in lower elevations), Rabin and Gautam brought us safely into Kathmandu in two days!! This entailed a 10K foot descent on foot followed by a 5 hour taxi ride on the first day, and a 7 hour bus ride into Kathmandu on the second. Unfortunately, we were still unable to get a flight out of Nepal before the airport shut down, and Kathmandu went under a strict shelter in place order.
During the time we were sheltering in place in Kathmandu, Nepal Trekking Experts found us a wonderful hotel to stay at, and checked in on us multiple times to make sure we were safe and comfortable. We were able to get seats on a flight chartered by the US Embassy back to the USA a week and a half later, and Rabin even checked in with us after we landed to make sure we made it back to the US safely!!
All of this was well above and beyond the call of duty for a trekking company. We will be forever grateful to the boys at Nepal Trekking Experts for the extra efforts they made to see to our safely, both during and after our trek, in what were obviously very, very challenging times for them and the people of Nepal. Thank you! We hope things return to normal very soon for fine businesses like Nepal Trekking Experts!!
Me and my friend we had the most best experiences it take 7 days to reach the summit even it was middle of winter our guide MR. Gautam Neupane he managed to make it easier and know Exactly our fitness level and needs with fully satisfied also, the office manager he kept following up with us to insure that we are safe and happy.
Thanks for Nepal Trekking Experts and the really thanks and I appreciate what our Brother the guide Gautam did he was more then close friends with high professional communication. cant wait to see you again.
What a tremendous experience with Nepal Trekking Experts! From the first communication to the last they handled everything promptly and professionally. Rajesh was very informative when we were first looking into trekking the Manasalu region. He answered any and all questions over email. It was clear early in our trekking company search that we wanted to go with him and his team.
Upon arrival at the airport in Kathmandu we met our guide, Thakur. He was by our side for the rest of the trip! Thakur was an amazing guide in Kathmandu as well as out on the trail. He has such deep knowledge of the culture, flora, and fauna of the region. He was incredibly thoughtful when briefing us on what each day would hold. So wise! You could tell that he and the company were well known and connected in the villages along the trail.
Our trek was in early March 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic was beginning to spread globally. Once we began our trek, there were plenty of rumors on the trail about travel restrictions and our status as foreigners eventually needing to get back to the USA. Thakur did a great job making us feel calm and at ease considering the developing situation globally. He was in constant contact with Rajesh and in tune with all updates and guidance from the Nepali government. I can’t say enough about how experienced and professional Rajesh and Thakur were at every step of the adventure. They made us feel at ease even among the chaos of traveling in the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic.
I would absolutely recommend going with Nepal Trekking Experts. I hope to someday return to Nepal and spend more time on the trail with Thakur! Thank you, Nepal Trekking Experts!
We researched more than twenty agencies and ultimately we felt Nepal Trekking Experts is the better option which turned on the reality. Rajesh was the very sharp and professional while communicating through the email and he did not disappoint at all since our arrival to till the departure.
We had a great time with our guide Mohan. He made sure everybody was doing ok and happy. He adjusted it as per our needs and interest. Overall it was a great experience and we highly recommend you doing Upper Mustang Trek once in a life. Thank you so much for everything guys and we will definitely come back soon!
I can’t add much more than previous reviewers, who have perfectly summarised the great service and responsiveness Rajesh provides, from the first enquiry to the very end of the trek. Nothing is ever too much to respond to or help with with when you arrive during the trek and afterwards. We initially contacted 6 well-reviewed agencies and NTE stood out as the clearest and most informative from the outset. I have no regrets we chose NTE and can thoroughly recommend them.
Our trek was impeccably guided by Prakash, with Amrit and Ram as porters. Although having trekked in Nepal several times, I had never used a guide before but as others commented it does enhance the experience. I felt we had a wonderful team, always on the lookout for our well being. Above all, they became friends we had a good laugh with too. These happy times certainly enhanced the experience and will stay in my memories, along with the amazing scenery. I wouldn’t get too hung up requesting or insisting on one name-checked guide / porter over another- our team was brilliant but we met other guides from NTE on the trail and everyone stood out as friendly and helpful. It was clear that Rajesh took his selection of guides and porters very seriously, and I’m sure whoever you are assigned would have to meet his very high standards. You will see the difference when you meet other groups on the trail and observe how their guides and porters interact with them.
We are in difficult times and I hope if you are reading this you are seriously thinking of trekking in Nepal soon, once the current global issues have abated. The local economies rely heavily on tourism, so if it’s safe to do so, take the plunge and speak to Rajesh - he and all the NTE team will not let you down and you will not regret it.
