Fantastic Tsum Valley Experience

Rating:  

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.
