My father and I just returned from touring Nepal with your guide Anuj. The trip was excellent!
We were shown many wonderful places and told lots of info that we wouldn’t have been able to gather ourselves, especially in just a few days. Having your company handle all the travel and hotel accommodations made us the envy of many other people we met. The flexibility in the schedule was great – our itinerary was not so hectic that we had plenty of rest and free time for personal wanderings.
I would highly recommend this trip and this company to anyone who wants a quality experience at a very reasonable price.
How disappointing – to return home last week after the wonderful trip you orchestrated for us to Nepal!!
Our time in your country was fantastic and mesmerizing. The kind people from your team looked after us so well, from our initial arrival at KTM airport to the 5-day Poon Hill Trek to the Chitwan jungle safari to the cultural and historical immersion of the Kathmandu city and valley areas. Such a great blend of activities for a family to physically challenge and savour intellectually and culturally.
My wife and I were mad to attempt this with our 7 and 11-year-old boys, and I thought our 3-week family exploration of Vietnam 2 years ago would not be surpassed; all misplaced feelings. But, instead, this was superb, and I would highly recommend to families your tailored individual packages; guided and assisted when we wanted, left alone to ourselves when we desired. Also, changes to what we wanted to do when in Nepal were accommodated with ease as my children’s energy surged and ebbed.
Of particular note, I would like to highlight the following individuals from your team:
Basu: Our guide on the 5 day Ghorepani – Poon Hill – Ghandruk trek. He was outstanding. So understanding of our needs and capabilities, so engaging with my little boys during the trek days and in the tea houses in the evening (card games are now addictive with the boys), and I enjoyed long talks with him over a few glasses of Roksy (my spelling!). We were all very sad to say goodbye to him when we departed from each other in Pokhara, and my boys want an e-mail from him when he can! I highly recommend Basu as a perfect guide for families trekking with younger children. He is a superb man who will seek out the best food, accommodation and service for you; whilst also being great fun to be around on the long trek days and socializing at night.
Mr Thapa: Our guide in Kathmandu when we went to Durbar Square, Patan, Bhaktapur, Nagarkot etc. He was such a knowledgeable, intelligent and articulate man. We learned much from him about Nepali history, culture, Hinduism and Buddhism. I especially enjoyed our chats about the challenges facing Nepal in the era of globalization.
I would be grateful if you could thank all those who assisted in our visit to Nepal and pass my comments above directly to Basu and Thapa.
In the future, we would like to return to Nepal when the boys are a little older, and we can attempt an even more challenging trek. ABC, the Annapurna Circuit Trek or Everest Base Camp may be options when the boys are a little older and stronger.
I will recommend you to my friends who fancy some adventure. You have some friends with you now, who I recommended should go to Nepal with your company after your expert organization of our trip.
Thank you for making this adventure happen for me, my wife and my young boys.
If families wish to e-mail me about our experiences and advice, please do so through Tilak. I would be delighted to assist you.
Many thanks for organising a great trekking holiday for us. It was generally very well organised.
One comment that might help you improve your services in future.
I suggest checking with the Clients regarding their physical shape when planning the treks. In our case, we could easily walk 3-4 hours more each day and save enough time to deviate to Tilicho lake, for example.
Otherwise, as said above, everything was excellent.
I will plan another trip to Nepal in the future and will naturally apply to you to help organise it.
Best regards and thanks,

Namaste Mr Tilak
We had a wonderful holiday in your country – our flights booked through you all went smoothly, and we found your people so friendly and kind.
We will recommend your services to our Australian and South African friends.
Dear Tilak, Bhairam, Chhapi and Arjun,
Many thanks for a wonderful experience on the AC trek.
Thank you to Bhairam for overseeing our trip so efficiently and courteously. Everything went very smoothly even when we changed our plans slightly.
Chhabi, our guide, was a real star and was a great companion on our trek. He ensured we had everything we needed – and got us to the top of Thorung-la without a hitch!
Arjun, our porter, was also brilliant – he’s a multitalented porter cum guide cum cook.
The Annapurna Circuit trek was an absolute joy. We had trekked to Muktinath over 20 years ago, but this was our first time on the Manang side, and we loved it – the views were sensational, and the villages and countryside were a delight. The road is coming, so I suggest people get to see it before the impact is too great.
The road on the Jomsom side has harmed the trekking experience, but new trails are being opened that avoid the road, so I recommend you give yourself enough time to explore these (see the book by Andreas de Ruiter and Prem Rai about the new NATT trails).
After Kagbeni (which you should visit), we decided to take transport to Tatopani to save time and avoid trekking on the road.
Ghorepani and the route to Tadapani and Ghandruk, etc., is road free and stunning (if a little ‘crowded’ when we were there in March).
I recommend Nepal Hiking to anyone interested in trekking, and we will be back!
Thanks again to everyone who made our trek a happy and memorable experience.
We just spent 1 month in Nepal and completed an 18-days trek with Nepal Hiking. We bought the trek on the internet and were concerned by the agency and services offered. From the first until the last day, Tilak and these employees have managed to make it unforgettable, and they exceeded our expectations at any time. A special thanks to the guide and the porter; they have been wonderful with us.
Thank you once again to Tilak and his team. I highly recommend this agency.
Good Morning Bhairam,
We wanted to write to you to once again thank you very much for arranging a wonderful trek and experience for us in Nepal. Nepal Hiking professionally organised the entire trip without any fault.
I would also like to inform you of the very high standard of customer service provided to us by both Raghu and Bhim. At all times during the trek, they were attentive, professional, punctual and always looking out for us to secure good accommodation and to ensure that we were comfortable. So please pass on our many thanks and high praise to both gentlemen.
Thank you very much, Bhairam. We will recommend Nepal Hiking to any friends or family travelling to Nepal.
All the best,
I am really happy to travel with your company. It is the third time (Helambu circuit, Himalayas crossing by jeeps and Upper Mustang) and always with your company.
We have very professional and friendly guides and a cook who prepares delicious food. All staff was polite and friendly.
Sometimes I ask about changes in the program, and your company helped me do my best as quickly as possible. I will never forget how Tilak helped us with the helicopter rescue of our daughter from the mountains. She was ill with a high fever. We were short of money, and thanks to Tilak, he did arrange all this helicopter operation.
I don’t know what more you need to improve. As for me – you are a perfect company, and I don’t want to travel with another one).
All the best,
We thank you and your team for making our trip the best. We had a fabulous time and have seen such magnificent scenery wherever we went. We will never, ever forget coming to visit your amazing country.
You run a great company, and I will not hesitate to recommend Nepal Hiking to anyone who asks.
You have friends in Bulgaria!
Annapurna Sanctuary trek went well. Tilak and the team at Nepal Hiking handled reservations and multiple questions patiently and professionally. All the arrangements went as promised, or they were dealt with promptly and effectively when unforeseen circumstances arose. My guide, Ram, was good company. He was also experienced and professional in his conduct. The staff were all friendly and helpful, with little touches beyond the call of duty which were welcome and appreciated.
Hope to travel with you again next year.
Thank you so much for organizing the most wonderful trek in the world!
We had the best time, thanks to our thoughtful, kind, professional and funny guide, Narayan, and our porter, Kapil, who was just as funny, lively, professional and a joy to be around. Those two made our trek an experience we’ll never forget. Thanks to them, we can (in the words of Michal Jackson) say, “A.B.C, it’s easy as 1 2 3”. Namely, we climbed all the stairs from Birethanti to Annapurna Base Camp. On the way, we saw the most breathtaking sunrises and magnificent mountains we’ve ever seen.
One might believe that at least once during a one-and-a-half-week long trek, you’ll get a bit sick of walking, tired of your company, longing for a bit of privacy – but we never did! The reason? We had too much fun dancing, singing, playing cards, talking and taking in the stunning view of the Himalayas.
Also, I (Sigrun) would like to offer a special thank you to Narayan for organizing the best birthday party ever! How many people can say they celebrated their 23rd birthday in a lodge, dancing disco with a random mix of strangers, after eating a specially made chicken curry and getting a cake with 23 candles? It was the best and showed what an incredible caring guide we had!
I guess our praises could go on forever. But, as my boss told me the other day, “you’re glowing when you’re talking about Nepal”. No wonder, since I’m absolutely in love with the country. I hope we can do another trek with our fabulous duo, Narayan and Kapil, someday. But, for now, we’ll live on the memories of the greatest trek of our lives, and thanks to Nepal Hiking for arranging it, and special thanks to Narayan and Kapil for making it more than we could.
First of all, I want to say thank you very much to Tilak, our guide Lok and our porter Raj for their marvellous job. Nepal Hiking perfectly organised the Gokyo Lake – Chola Pass – Everest Base Camp Trek. The support of our guide and porter on the trek was perfect.
The trip was one of the best I have ever done, and childhood dreams came true. I walked on the same steps as all the heroes like Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. With the help and assistance of your team, I reached all targets, such as Gokyo Lake, Gokyo Ri and Cho La Pass, Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar. I guess there is nowhere in the world a better scenery than here. To see “the top of the world” so close was gorgeous and unbelievable.
Ultimately, I thought I had done everything before another highlight started. I couldn’t get my return flight from Lukla to Kathmandu because of bad weather conditions. So I decided to walk down to Jiri in 4 days with our guide Lok. It was certainly the hardest thing I have done so far, but eventually, it was one of the most important conversation topics. The landscape was also beautiful, and I could enjoy much more of a true Nepal. Here you can see the real life of the local people. There is one thing I would change, to do it in 6 days instead of 4!!!
Thank you very much again for everything. I am coming back soon to enjoy another trip with your company.
Hope all is well in Nepal, and your business is going o.k. We have been on a trek to ABC (Annapurna Base Camp) with Ram and Babu from Sep. 29 to Oct. 11, 2003. Unfortunately, since we returned to KTM very late on the day before we flew back to Germany, there was no chance to visit you in your office in Kathmandu. However, we just wanted to give brief feedback regarding our trek.
First of all, Ram and Babu have been fantastic and took great care of us. We had a wonderful time trekking with both of them. Everything went smoothly and without any problems. Instead of starting the trek in Phedi, Ram suggested starting in Naya Pul. We discussed that with him, and he convinced us the way up from Naya Pul would be a little bit easier and not as steep. Since he knows the area so well, we certainly trusted his judgment, which was a very good decision.
The climb up to Hille on the first day was rather easy and a good start to loosen up our legs after sitting in planes and buses for many hours during the last few days. We then hiked on to Ghorepani, where we encountered the Maoists. Ram handled the situation well, and we had no problems with them. On the third day, we trekked to Tadapani, and on the fourth day, we made it to Chhomorung.
Baerbel and I believe this was a better way up because it gave us extra nights at a high altitude to get used to the altitude and prepare for the further hike up to ABC. We would support recommending this way to other clients of your agency, particularly because we went back over Phedi and then realized how steep the trail is. However, we do not think it is good to do on the first day of the trek.
Ram and Babu never rushed things, and we had a very relaxing time. We took enough rest during the day and never felt too exhausted at the end of the day. Ram organized everything from food to drinks, and we did not have to do anything but enjoy the trek. His English is very good, and he explained and pointed out many interesting things about Nepali people and the country. He seemed very knowledgeable and never lost his patience despite all our questions. Babu also speaks reasonable English, and both tried to teach us some Nepali. I am afraid we failed miserably trying to pronounce the words correctly. It always made us all laugh a lot, though.
We have been truly lucky to have Ram as our guide, and also Babu added a lot to this great experience. We already have and will continue recommending your agency to all our friends. Most hike a lot, and maybe they will also plan a trip to Nepal soon. In that case, your agency will be their first point of contact since you seem to have very friendly and reliable people like Ram and Babu working for you.
Please also give our best wishes and regards to both of them if you speak to them again. We believe they are currently trekking in the Everest region.
All the best to you and a good look with your future. We hope to see you again in Nepal someday.
I am writing to say how much we enjoyed our trek in the Annapurna region. We were very fortunate to have such a good guide (Ram) and such good porters (Amar and Babu).
In particular, I would like to let you know some things we especially value.
Flexible itinerary designed to enable us to do what we wanted and modified as we went along when circumstances changed.
It was always a very high priority for our guide. Ram monitored us, our environment and our circumstances continually and closely. We felt reassured that he took our safety very seriously, particularly concerning the physical terrain, our health, and our potential to get lost in unfamiliar city streets.
The accommodation was always clean, and they showed respect for our privacy. Our guide cared for us, providing the best available accommodation on the trek.
Information and advice:
Information and advice were invaluable. Ram has local knowledge of the area, awareness of Western food requirements and potential difficulties, encouragement at times, and guidance for local customs and expectations.
Friendly, helpful and unobtrusive:
Our guide and porters were friendly at all times and helpful. They were never intrusive or pushy. If we needed to be hurried along, it was always done gently and carefully (e.g. ordering meals).
We were particularly grateful for your company’s “airport to airport” service, the protection and advice regarding touts at the airport, and the welcome.
In addition, when we needed a solution to a problem, you provided it quickly and without fuss (for example, when we left our passes in Kathmandu and were in Pokhara).
It was wonderful not to have to organise a thing from the moment we arrived until we left.
We were also very pleased that your company ensures that your guides and porters have appropriate clothing and are well looked after during the trek.
Thank you again, Tilak, for the experience of a lifetime. I hope to return to your wonderful Nepal very soon.
I appreciate you passing on our thanks to Ram, Amar and Babu.
With our very best wishes,
Dear Tilak, Surya and Ramesh,
It’s been 1.5 months since I returned to Taiwan. Of course, time flies, but I never forget my promise to send my hearty recommendation because you are worth it! 🙂 Take care, my Friends.
The first time I saw Tilak at the airport, I knew I had made the right decision. Although he was not our eventual tour guide, I felt trust from his sincerity and how he welcomed us. My sister and I had an enjoyable adventure in Chitwan during Poon Hill trekking with his profession and organised trekking.
Of course, I have to thank our tour guides especially. Not only was the trekking a wonderful experience, but Surya and Ramesh did a good job and were very helpful. They made the trekking very interesting and full of fun. They both were responsible for doing their part. Surya’s introduction during the trekking and Ramesh’s whistle by leaf (any kind!), the folk song we learnt for the first time and the nights we talked and shared. We thank them for those good memories.
I wouldn’t experience the beautiful landscape of Nepal without their company. I’m greatly looking forward to coming back to Nepal in the future and seeing them. So I would like to highly recommend Nepal Hiking to those planning to trek in Nepal.
I have learned so much from you, and I will return with special memories.
I can’t believe you could be so happy and smiling every day; it was amazing.
Thank you so much.
Lots of love,
Thank you so much for such a fantastic 3 weeks – I will never forget the time I spent in Nepal – trekking amongst such beautiful views, mountains and people. The memories will stay with me forever.
* Basu – Thank you for all the answers to our “Silly” questions; you are a fountain of information, my friend!!
* Hari – You always smiled with our bag on your back – I’ll always remember.
Hope to stay in touch.
Good luck to both of you in the future.
Thank you very much for your company and good guidance throughout the trip. You have been fun to be with, cheerful, singing folk songs, whistling and enjoying yourself. It’s great to know you. Hope to see you again, and best wishes to you and your family.
My trek to Upper Mustang was spectacular. Of course, all the people I met in the hotels, along the trekking path, etc., are extremely friendly and helpful. The landscape is wonderful. Ram, my guide and Bikul, my porter, were absolutely helpful. Ram profanely taught me a lot of Nepali practical use. We became like a little family because the group size was so small.
Thank you very much.
We want to thank the company Nepal Hiking a lot for the perfectly organized trip, and the nice time we had in the mountains. A good professional and friendly person contributed to our good spirit during the trip to the Annapurna region.
I enjoyed the trip to Nepal and Tibet and all my dealings with Nepal Hiking very much. The company responded to my e-mails during the trip planning, always on time and with all the right answers. When I arrived at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, everything was well planned and performed.
I am looking forward to my next trip with you!
Finally, we arrived healthy at home and looked back with a touch of melancholy. But, again, I want to thank you for your encouragement and commitment. We are highly satisfied with your services.
Specifically, your fellow employees Hari and Bikul rank among the best qualities needed for such a project. Therefore, please convey our warmest greetings to Hari and Bikul. We will never forget how complaisant and nice they were.
Let us keep in touch!
Thank you very much for a very enjoyable trek. Kendy and I were very pleased with the quality of our trek, the level of organisation and the excellent service of our guides and porters. We would be happy to use Nepal Hiking again in the future, and we look forward to keeping in touch.
I had a great and memorable time in Nepal and always felt that your company could not have been more helpful. Thank you for all your help since the first day I e-mailed. I shall certainly recommend you to my friends who would also like to visit Nepal.
It is my pleasure to talk about my guide “Ganga” who works for Nepal Hiking. He helped my wife and me during our Nepal trekking. With the help of Nepal Hiking and our great guide Ganga, we left Kathmandu on 12th March for the classic Everest trek from Jiri to Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla (23 days). We are now in Kathmandu after more than 3 weeks of a wonderful trekking trip and spending some days before returning home, and we are now emailing our friends and family and telling them about our great trip to Everest with our guide. To speak about our guide, in brief, he is an excellent guide, has been trained by the Ministry of Tourism Nepal, has good humour, and knows all aspects of Nepali lifestyle and culture.
Lastly, we highly recommend our guide’s excellent professional service and personal care during our trekking tour in the Everest Region.
e were very satisfied, and Mr Ganga made an excellent tribute to our holiday in Nepal.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have joined back in the office today and hence sending the mail.
My trek was beautiful. I had one of the best times in my life during the trek. Can’t thank Basu enough for making my trip so comfortable and enjoyable. Like I told Basu, I was sure I would not be able to make it beyond 2-3 days as I did not consider myself very fit, but surprisingly I made it almost without any difficulty and, in fact, enjoyed my way right till the end. The rafting trip was also an experience I will remember.
Overall, I think you have a very professional organisation and one of the best guides in Basu. I hope to do more treks with you in the future, maybe one in the coming year itself. Also, a lot of people out here, after hearing from me, are quite keen to do such treks. I will put them in touch with you.
Do convey my regards to Basu and wish him my best in life.
Nepal Hiking was like a family for us in Nepal; they did more than everything to make the trip (Jomsom Trek) as comfortable as possible. Thanks for the nice time with all of you.
Dear Tilak, Ramesh and Raj,
Thank you so much for organizing such a wonderful trip for us to Nepal. This trip makes us understand Nepali culture and enjoy the excellent natural scenery. We take pleasure in trekking the most and will never forget our time trekking around the Annapurna region. Ramesh was our tour guide; eventually, he became our friend after the 6-day trek. He is a smart, helpful and responsible person with humanity. He arranged our trip very precisely, reacted very quickly and understood our requests thoroughly all the time. Therefore, we didn’t worry about anything but enjoyed the trek, Nepalese food and the beautiful landscape. It was not easy to trek along the route sometimes, and he was kind and took great care of us, making our trekking very interesting and entertaining.
Most importantly, we found that Ramesh has a great enthusiasm for being a tourist guide and a deep passion for his country. Also, we would like to thank our potter, Raj. He is responsible for carrying our heavy backpacks throughout the trip and mostly gets a nice-viewed room for us during the trekking route. Undoubtedly, we will have Nepal Hiking to organize our tour on our next visit to Nepal. We hope you all enjoy your work and look forward to seeing you soon.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Take care and best regards,
A thoroughly enjoyable and memorable experience. The service provided by your company was excellent.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with you, and when we had to change our itinerary at the last minute, it was no problem for you. Our guide, Bhairam and our porters, Hari and Tilak Ale were lovely, knowledgeable, and good at Rummy!!!
Thank you very much, Mr Tilak, for a very enjoyable experience. I had a memorable trek to Gokyo Lake ayd Gokyo Ri and Kala Pathar destinations. The organization of the trek was perfect, and the support you provided me during the journey was excellent.
I want to emphasize the wonderful job that your guide Ram did all the trek. He is very experienced (he has already done the same trek more than ten times), very good and supportive. His knowledge of most of the peaks, mountains, and other trail details made my trek an unforgettable experience.
His English speaking level allowed us to keep a very friendly and warm relationship, and he provided me with a lot of information about the Himalayas and their culture and costumes.
I would be happy to use Nepal Hiking again in the future, and we look forward to keeping in touch.
Our trip to Upper Mustang was made possible by the guides’ expertise, who did their utmost to accommodate our party. Hiring the horses made all the difference. The cook managed wonderful filling meals (and added snacks) under difficult conditions. Thank you, Dil. Our Sherpas and porters were always very helpful, polite and considerate. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you.
The travel and the organisation were perfect, we will recommend it to our friends. Thanks a lot.
Nerea Zabala – Jose Lopez
Namaste, Mr Tilak,
I just wanted to let you know that I got home ok, and all is well with my children; they were glad to have their mum home.
I will come back, either Annapurna trek or Mera Peak, and I hope I will be able to do my trekking with your company.
I will send some to your computer when I have all my photos.
Namaste, Mr Tilak,
I am Ron and was with the Cook party (from the UK) that took the Gokyo Lake Trek from 12th April to 26th April 2006. The food and entertainment at the Priest House restaurant were both excellent and most enjoyable; I thank you for providing that opportunity.
However, that is not the only reason I write this letter: I wish to thank ‘Nepal Hiking Pvt. Ltd.’ as a whole for making our journey an enjoyable, worry-free experience. In particular, Ganga was the perfect guide, and I would not hesitate to go on another journey with him in the future. I want to return to Nepal and use his services again next year. His personality, extensive knowledge and professionalism make him a likeable character. I further commend Ganga on his judgment and decision-making during the trek.
Before I embarked upon this journey, the news reports about Nepal made it appear that it was not a place to go. Our entire party is thankful that we listened to you, Mr Tilak, and put ourselves in your most competent care. If we had taken note of the news media reports, we would have missed this opportunity to visit Nepal. Yes, there is a military presence, but there are only a handful of ‘checkpoints’ in the mountains. They certainly did not interfere with travellers and were very pleasant and friendly. The whole time I was in Nepal, I felt very safe.
I recommend “Nepal Hiking” to all who wish to trek in Nepal.
Thank you once again, Mr Tilak. I hope to be in contact with you soon.
After we spent 4 days in Austria, we just arrived home. Everest base camp trekking with your company was a good selection. Our members highly appreciated your professionalism and hospitality.
Thank you again! We will contact you next time we plan another group.
Good luck to you!
I apologize for not writing sooner.
Thank you for the amazing trek we had in April with Mr Ram. We enjoyed it immensely.
Our guide, Mr. ram and his porters were just brilliant, helping us in every way possible. So the trek was exceptionally good value.
Thank you too for your excellent service and kindness shown to us during our time in Kathmandu.
Your company is one of excellence.
“Great personalized service. Very efficient and resourceful even during unforeseen situations. When we could not cross the Nepal-Tibet border because of a roadblock strike, Nepal Hiking arranged a helicopter service for us last minute.”
I have been home for about a week now. Every day I think about my great time on the Classic Everest Trek. Before arriving in Kathmandu, I wondered whether I had taken on something too much. However, once your staff picked me up at the airport and you met me at the hotel, you put my mind at ease. From the first day, I was treated with respect. You answered all my questions and fulfilled all my needs.
Once on the trail, my safety and health were of primary importance to my guide Bhim and my porter Narayan. Every morning they asked how I felt, if I had a headache and how I slept. They said, ‘ If you’re happy, we’re happy.”
Bhim was a wealth of knowledge. Any questions I had about the people, animals, birds, plants, mountains, politics, or whatever, Bhim usually had an answer, and he was also eager to hear about my part of the world. However, Narayan’s greatest asset was his strength. He carried my pack up and down the hills every day for 22 days with ease, sometimes carrying all my gear, leaving me with nothing to do but enjoy the day.
I would not hesitate to recommend these two employees to anyone wishing a fantastic vacation in Nepal.
Thank you, Tilak, and all your staff for providing me with the trip of a lifetime. I also highly recommend the use of the Nepal Hiking Agency.
I am writing to say to Tilak how much I appreciated all you did for me to make my trek and the time I spent in Nepal thoroughly enjoyable. I found your company to be extremely professional. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to anybody. If you have any potential customers who would like any reassurance, please pass on my email to them, and I shall be more than willing to recommend you.
The level of service you gave me was excellent. I wish you all the very best for you and your company in the future.
We want to write a short note to thank you for organizing our trip and encouraging other travellers to Nepal to use Nepal Hiking Agency. We did the Everest Base Camp trek but only had 15 days due to work commitments – Mr Tilak set out a personalized schedule for us which allowed us to take in all of the sights, reach Base Camp and get back safely. But that’s not all our flight was cancelled from Sydney, which lost us a day of our trip. When we were stressed and fearing that our already tight time frame would jeopardize our trip, Mr Tilak was fantastic. He reorganized everything (airport pickup, hotel in Kathmandu, rearranged flight to Lukla, changed the trekking schedule and accommodation).
For those coming to Nepal for the first time, like me, you may consider doing it all yourself. My experience with Nepal Hiking Agency over the last few weeks is that it is better to leave this to the experts. Trying to get flights to and from Lukla, understanding weather conditions, understanding your health, forecasting your progress etc., is all time and energy consuming. In my opinion, save your energy for trekking. These guys understand the local infrastructure and how to get things done.
We were guided by Basu, a guy we now would consider a friend. His insights into the area, the landscape, and the people were great-mind. He has been doing this for 20 years and is an expert guide. We were a bit tired as we approached Base camp, but he had great advice on altitude sickness prevention, and when one of us had a bad night (fever) – it was Basu who took charge, and we were able to proceed (if left to our own devices we would have lost a lot of time and perhaps even stopped). He’s also a great card player, and we spent many, in fact, most, nights playing (partners). He gave us flexibility in our trip – so we could stop when we were tired or hungry or keep going if we weren’t. We ate in the best places, and there was always plenty. He set a good pace, and because of this, we could reach all of our goals in the time we had and have a good chat.
We also met other travellers (from Canada and Portugal) who were with Nepal Hiking and had a ball. We usually tended to meet at different times and stay in the same places. Their guides (Ram and Hari) and porters were also well organized, so there was a real feeling of being part of a bigger group – even though there were only three of us. In such an awesome country, it’s good to have that kind of peace of mind.
I had never been to Nepal before or indeed done any trekking. I can honestly say that this was the best holiday ever and that it was made better by Nepal Hiking Agency. Their guides, porters, accommodation and food were great. We were also treated to two weeks of blue skies and sunshine, which made a beautiful place even better. The highlight of our trip was probably the Chukkung Valley, with magnificent views of Amadablam, Makalu, Island Peak and the world’s roof. Base Camp was an exquisite sense of achievement, but the trip as a whole will live in the memory forever for the generosity and hospitality of our hosts.
Thank You, Mr Tilak
(ps – I would be happy to provide more feedback to prospective visitors, who can get my email address from Mr Tilak)
Just wanted to say thank you so much for our trek in Nepal; we had a fabulous time and are already planning to come back and do the Annapurna circuit! Our guide Ganga and our Sherpa Hari were a wonderful, very friendly and helpful and really good laugh too!
Everything ran smoothly from the first to the last day, very well organised and completely hassle-free. So thank you once again, and if anyone I know is thinking of Nepal, I will send them your way!
Dear Mr Tilak,
We just wanted to thank you and your company for providing us with an experience of a lifetime. We were a little nervous booking a trip over the Internet but were pleasantly surprised by the professional staff that assisted us in every aspect of our trip. Our guide Basu and porter Pasang exceeded all of our expectations. They constantly ensured that we were comfortable, did not have any altitude issues, and taught us the cultural aspects of Nepal. Basu was extremely flexible and allowed us to hike at our own pace (slow). When my wife had a cold during the trip, he was very concerned about her health and provided some local medicine to make her feel better. We strongly recommend your company and Basu as a guide for anyone interested in trekking in the Himalayas. We will use your company in the future for our treks.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent preparations for our trip. We always felt safe and looked after by your staff wherever we went. The fact that they were consistently happy and cheerful, and supportive. I have already recommended you to several people.
I can’t say enough about how wonderful Narayan and Bikram were. They both went out of their way to make our trip special and to protect and look after us. They were also kind and helpful to many others we met along the way, which added to our trip’s pleasure. Terry and I are both kind people, and we like to surround ourselves with people who are also kind. It was a big challenge for us, but with Narayan’s planning and encouragement and Bikram’s quiet support, we felt comfortable and confident that we could achieve it. Thank you again,
I, too, wish you, your family and all your staff all the best in the new year.
Just a quick note thank you very much for organising our trek. We all enjoyed it; we will keep the memories forever. Thank you for helping Tony so much. He is well now. We recommend you to anyone who would like to do the trek.
Namaste Tilak and all at Nepal Hiking
Thank you for the excellent organisation and flexibility of my trekking, rafting and safari experience with you.
Also, thanks to Bhimsen, my guide, and Ashok, my sherpa, who undoubtedly made my trip even more enjoyable.
I enjoyed my time walking your Nepalese flat (up and down the hillside) and experiencing your culture. When I left for the trek, I was concerned about my ability to achieve my goal of reaching Gokyo Ri. All my fears were unfounded, and the one thing that prevented me from achieving my goal was the amount of snowfall at Namche Bazaar on our acclimatisation day and the flight delay to Lukla. When it became clear that we would not reach Gokyo in time, Bhimsen gave me the option to alter our plans and still achieve a dream of seeing Mount Everest up close. My sense of achievement is still as strong one month after my return, and I would recommend you to others thinking of trekking in Nepal.
The accommodation was excellent in both Kathmandu and on the trek. I also found the guest house accommodation to be excellent at all times. I also appreciated the care Ashok and Bhimsen gave me on the trek. I, too, feel like they have become my friends and will think of them often.
I am a mature lady travelling on my own and believe that the arrangements you made throughout my trip were just first class.
If anyone would like to contact me about my experience, I would gladly assist them if you pass on my email to them.
I just wanted to thank you and your wonderful staff for my incredible trip to Gokyo Ri, Chola Pass, Kalapathar, and Everest Base Camp. It was the best trip of my life. I especially want to thank my guide, Ram, and porter, Santos, who made the trip much easier than I could ever imagine. The scenery was incredible and will forever be remembered by me. Your staff in Kathmandu was always there to ensure everything was running smoothly. After talking to those on the trail which did not have guides or porters about their difficulties, I cannot imagine even attempting the trip without my wonderful help.
I also had a great time on the tour of Kathmandu, river rafting, and Chitwan National Park. It was a great way to end my trip. The hotels in Kathmandu and Chitwan were especially nice. I did not expect such luxury at such a great price.
I look forward to returning to Nepal to do the Annapurna Circuit. I look forward to seeing everyone again.
Thank you once again for making our trekking holiday to Gokyo and Kalapathar a holiday we will never forget. We found Nepal Hiking perfect in the organization of our holiday from the moment we arrived in Kathmandu until the day of our departure. We couldn’t have asked for a more professional team of people during every step of our trip. Narayan was the perfect guide, gentleman and friend. He well looked after us at all times. We always felt perfectly safe in his hands and cannot thank him enough for his kindness, enthusiasm and good spirits during the trek. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and he always ensured that we had no altitude problems and allowed us to hike at our own pace (even carrying our ruck-sacks if needed!). We met up with several other groups travelling with Nepal Hiking, and they were all very happy and couldn’t speak too highly of your agency. The evenings spent playing cards with Narayan, and other trekkers we met along the way will also remain special in our memories. Our two porters were also absolute gems.
I am already looking forward to travelling to Nepal again soon, and it will certainly be with Nepal Hiking and, of course, with Narayan.
Thank you, and keep up the good work.
I want to thank you very much for making our trek an unforgettable experience. I can also thank you on behalf of my friends, who were together with me on this trip.
You have set high customer satisfaction standards, and we were very impressed with your professionalism. Please pass along our feedback to our wonderful guide Balaram.
Thanks very much, and we wish to come back soon.
Just a note to thank you for organising such a wonderful trek through the Annapurnas to Muktinath. Thanks to Bhairam, our guide, and Yam and Krishna, our porters. It was 27 years ago I first went to Nepal, but I don’t think I will wait that long again. It was truly a life-changing experience. The Nepali people are friendly and hospitable – we look forward to the chance to make it all happen again soon. We hope you are all well and wish you well in the future.
Bye for now
In the following, my father, brother, and I would like to give you some feedback about our trip.
Firstly, we would like to thank our trekking guide, Hari. He was always very friendly, helpful, and caring. Even though we had lost 2 days in Kathmandu due to bad weather, we could still make our trip (including all the items on the itinerary!). That was only possible because Hari organised everything very well. Thank you very much, Hari! He adapted perfectly to our speed, and we never were in a hurry. We had a lot of time to take many photos (something very important to us). If there was a day we didn’t feel so well, he even carried our backpacks. We think that’s a very special service!
Besides showing us the mountains, Hari also told us about Nepal’s culture and people. He knows a lot about history, the different customs, and religions, and it was always very interesting to listen to him. Hari also told us about his family, so we got a good impression of how a normal Nepali family lives and what life is like in Nepal. That was very interesting because information like that is hard to find in a guided book.
The tea houses were always good. If there were a lower and a higher class tea house, Hari would always pick the higher class one.
After spending 18 days with Hari, he was not only our guide anymore; he has become our friend, and we are sure we’ll keep in touch with him.
We also want to thank our porters, Gopi and Kasi. They were always very friendly and helpful, and they never complained about carrying our (too) heavy bags. They were always smiling. Thanks a lot for that!
Secondly, white water rafting was a new and good experience. The water of the Trisuli River was a refreshing contrast to the mountains.
Thirdly, we had a very good time at Chitwan National Park. The Jungle Island Resort is a great location! The jungle walks were very exciting, and riding on an elephant was just a great experience. Don’t forget the elephant bathing! We came very close to a Rhino, something we would have never expected to see. Our jungle guides were always nice and willing to answer our questions about the different animals and plants.
Altogether, we are very happy that we chose Nepal Hiking. Everything was perfectly organised, and we never felt worried or left alone.
The hotel you picked for us (Hotel de l’Annapurna) was a great choice. It’s a very nice hotel, and its downtown Kathmandu location is perfect for sightseeing or shopping. The guided sightseeing tour through Kathmandu on the first day was very interesting, too. Thanks a lot to our guide Saroj Chitrakar who was very friendly and knowledgeable!
Last but not least, we would like to thank you, Tilak, for managing the big problems we had with our international flights. Even though Nepal Hiking had nothing to do with our international flights because we had booked them through a German travel agency, you helped us to fix this problem caused by our German travel agency. Without you, we would have been completely lost, and probably we would still be in Kathmandu, waiting and hoping for a flight back home to Germany. That shows that Nepal Hiking cares about its clients and that its standard of service is very high. In the past, we had used German travel companies for organising trekking trips all around the world. Nepal Hiking’s standard of service is at least equal to theirs or even higher. That’s why we can recommend Nepal Hiking for holidays in Nepal, whether it’s trekking, sightseeing, or going to the jungle.
Please feel free to publish our e-mail address on your website or to give it to potential clients if they should have any questions about holidays in Nepal or about Nepal Hiking.
Thanks again to the entire Nepal Hiking Agency! You made our stay in Nepal a wonderful and unforgettable experience.
We are looking very forward to seeing you again, maybe soon on another trip, of course, organised by Nepal Hiking.
I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all at Nepal Hiking.
First, thank you for organizing a great itinerary on short notice and for being flexible in planning my trip. When my original travel plans were cancelled on me (through no fault of my own) by another company, your company made sure I was taken care of and handled all arrangements professionally and efficiently. I was very pleased with your team’s punctuality and the courtesy you had shown me in Nepal and through email correspondence.
Secondly, I would like to thank Bhairam for organizing all the transportation and a city tour with Anuj. The city tour was fantastic, and Bhairam was there to personally greet me on my arrival in Kathmandu, all transfers to and from the airport, and before the city tour. This personal treatment is much appreciated and gives a weary traveler much-needed peace of mind.
Lastly, and most importantly, I owe many thanks to Hari, my guide. Hari saw to all arrangements while on the trek, which means he performed multiple roles: guide, historian, travel agent, waiter, physician, friend, and more. On most days, Hari carried my pack, leaving nothing for me to do except enjoy the scenery. Hari is filled with great information about the trail, the people, the mountains, and the cultures, and he always secured the best lodges and the best rooms. He also allowed me to proceed at my own pace and constantly watch my health, which is invaluable at high altitudes. Even after the trek, Hari accompanied me into Thamel to help me negotiate prices on souvenirs, although he had already completed his obligations toward his duties. This personal attention is what I appreciate most from Nepal Hiking and Hari. Many thanks also go out to my porter, Puri, who still amazes me at the amount of stuff he carries while I struggle taking a few steps!
Please feel free to distribute my email address as a reference for future clients who have questions. In addition, I would be happy to recommend your company’s services and Hari as a guide.
DEAR MR. TILAK,
OUR EBC TREKKING TEAM AND POKHARA TEAM RETURNED TO HONG KONG SAFELY SINCE TEN DAYS AGO. WE WANT TO THANK YOUR COMPANY’S GOOD ARRANGEMENT TO FULFIL OUR ITINERARY. WE ALL ARE DELIGHTED TO VISIT YOUR COUNTRY (NEPAL) WITH THE GOOD EXPERIENCE OF TREKKING AND NEPAL’S CULTURE.

ESPECIALLY ONE OF OUR EBC TEAMMATES WHO GOT ALTITUDE SICKNESS; HE SENT HIS BEST REGARD WITH THANKS TO PORTER KRISHNA THAPA, WHO GAVE HIM A GREAT HELP AND GOOD CARE WHEN DESCENDING TO A LOWER AND SAFETY PLACE. ALSO, THE GUIDE KRISHNA MAN, HELPED US CONTINUE OUR TREKKING TO ACHIEVE EBC TARGET.
OUR EXPERIENCE AND JOY WILL DISTRIBUTE AMONG WITH OUR ASSOCIATION MEMBERS. SURELY IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO ASK YOUR COMPANY’S HELP IF THEY ARRANGE ANOTHER TOURING / TREKKING TO NEPAL IN THE COMING FUTURE.
GOOD LUCK, MY FRIENDS!
I just wanted to thank you for organizing the trip so well. Everything was fantastic. Also, I would like to point out the excellent job that our guide did. Without the guide, the trip would not have been the same.
I want to thank Nepal Hiking, Tilak, and Bhairam for organizing and always being there for me for my Kala Pathar trip. Your services and friendliness were outstanding, and I would especially like to thank my guide, Hari, for all he has done for me on my trek. Hari was always kind and helpful, and I always felt my interests, comfort, and safety were his priorities. He took as good care of me as my mother would. Thank you all for a trip I will remember for the rest of my life.
I’m sorry I haven’t written sooner. I have been sick with bronchitis. I am doing better now. Our trip was great thanks to you and our guide Ram, who could not have done a better job. He was waiting when we arrived at the Kathmandu airport. He ensured that we got our gear and got us on a plane to Lukla when other trekkers had been waiting for several days. And he took us to the nicest teahouses when other groups could not get in. He made sure we were safe and comfortable. He got us to Base Camp, got me to Kala Patthar, and most of all, became our friend.
Whatever he was paid, he deserves more. Our group would be happy to be referenced for anyone who would like a recommendation for Nepal Hiking and especially for Ram as a guide.
The trek was hard, but your country is beautiful, and the people of the mountains were kind, friendly, and helpful. We will always cherish the memories of our trip.
We’ve been home now for a week. So I should write on behalf of my colleagues to express our thanks for the Annapurna Trek. All thoroughly enjoyed it, and we were most impressed by the friendly and organized manner in which it was run, not just by yourself but by Bikesh and his porters, Krishna, Arjun, and Bhim.
After our first ‘macho’ day, Bikesh taught us all to walk uphill in the mountains and ensured we would have enough extra energy to enjoy the magnificent scenery and company.
The real measure of a trekking organization is how it responds to a major problem. The actions of Bikesh and yourself when Richard Gaffney had his accident proved your total professionalism. Richard is still in plaster (he had to have further manipulative work done on his return) but expects to be fit again in three weeks.
We all thank you for looking after him so well. We will contact you if or when we return to Nepal and will recommend you to anyone.
Thank you once again,
I just returned home from my trek to Namche Bazaar -Tengboche, the Glimpse of Everest Trek.
It was AMAZING, a magical experience!
Narayan is a wonderful, knowledgeable, and trustworthy guide. During the trek, he ensured I was happy, comfortable, warm, well-fed, and, most of all, safe. Anything I could want, Narayan made sure it happened. He even took me to a bakery in Namche on my birthday and had a cake with candles and a birthday present. I’ll never forget my birthday and the time I spent on the Everest trail, all thanks to Narayan!
You are lucky to have a guide like him under your employ. Thank you for arranging such an enjoyable trek!
All the best,
I thank Ganga, our guide, and his team for improving our trip. They were professional, friendly, and extremely helpful at all times. They all looked after us very well, making the whole experience more pleasant. I would recommend Ganga anytime, as he is an excellent guide. He assessed the group and adjusted the trip and pace according to our needs.
I just wanted to thank you for organising such a wonderful trip to Nepal for my son and me. We had a fabulous time and have seen such magnificent scenery wherever we went. We will never, ever forget coming to visit you.
Most importantly, thank you also for your choice of guide for us. You couldn’t have chosen anyone better. Thapa was just perfect, and all the time, we felt so safe with him and so well looked after. We felt extremely privileged that he shared some of his immense knowledge of Nepal and Buddhism with us in such a thoughtful and understanding way. Not only that, he was the best and kindest companion throughout our stay. We enjoyed his company tremendously and have greatly missed him since our return. No one could have put more time and effort into making our stay as wonderful.
Not to forget our incredible driver, Ram, who coped with the most difficult roads at times in such a superb way. We always felt safe in the car with him, and he was a courteous and kind man. His smile made the day light up, and we appreciated his hard work on our behalf and his moving company throughout the trip. He was great, and I thank him very much for all he did for us.
I am sorry that we couldn’t say goodbye to you in person, Tilak but thank you for your very kind welcome of us to your country. It was good to meet you after all our months of correspondence. Nick and I left Nepal with the most wonderful memories, and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone I know who plans to visit your beautiful and vibrant country.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and leave you with grateful appreciation for all your efforts to make our trip as truly magnificent as it was.
My trip was well organised, and I had a very kind guide. I could enjoy my time in Nepal very much.
Everything was fine! Thank you very much.
We had a great time on the trek with Basu and Santu. They were terrific. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!
My friends and I went on the Everest Base Camp Trek from November 17th to December 4th.
I would like you to know that throughout the entire trip, our guide and porters were simply wonderful. Our guide Basu in particular was very kind, considerate, and helpful.
Trekking through the Himalayas: Nepal countryside was truly an experience of a lifetime, and the greatest honor for me was the friendship I grew up with Basu.
I know it’s very unlikely that he and I will ever meet again; however, it is my greatest hope that I will always remember and carry a little of his spirit with me where ever life takes me.
I want to send Basu a photo of our group and ask you to please provide me with the correct spelling of his first name.
Of course, Nepal Hiking can expect only the highest praise and strong support from all of us.
Thank you for being so helpful, and thanks again for a truly great trekking experience.
I just wanted to thank you for one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. You and your staff did everything you said you would do and, in many cases, went above and beyond to ensure that we had a pleasant trip. Although you couldn’t have possibly planned the chemistry between myself and the other group members, I will give you credit nonetheless. We meshed extremely well, and I now count many new friends in my repertoire. You run a terrific company Tilak, and I will not hesitate to recommend Nepal Hiking to anyone who asks. You have also whetted my appetite for travel in Nepal, and, in 2 or 3 years, I plan to return and do the Annapurna circuit. Hopefully, Ganga will still be a guide and can make the trip with me. Speaking of which, I wanted to thank Ganga, particularly, for being such a great guide and person. I feel honored to have met him and thoroughly enjoyed his company (as did the rest of the group). I look forward to our next trek together! Special mentions to Bishnu. He often went above and beyond the call of duty and looked after Kamran when he had fallen behind. He is a great kid! Our guide in Kathmandu (whose name I have forgotten) was also fantastic and knowledgeable. You have a great staff! Please feel free to give out my email address to anyone who asks. I’d be happy to answer anyone’s questions.
Best of wishes,
The rest of the group and I have been safely back in the UK for a while now. I want to take this opportunity to say a couple of words about the guide you chose for us, Hari.
Thank you very much for your excellent choice. Hari was, without a doubt, the best individual you could have picked for our group. His gregarious, outgoing and friendly character was an instant hit with us, and we immediately warmed to his amicable manner. From the very start of the trek, he worked tirelessly to make our lives easier. It would be fair to say that Hari’s idea of providing a service far outdid ours. Our group were all military personnel, so we are used to setting a good pace and having things done efficiently. In these respects, we could not have asked for a better leader. He didn’t once complain about our various requests, he stayed flexible, always thinking ahead, and his local knowledge made the whole experience much more enjoyable. During the trek, we spoke to many other groups, and we all, without a doubt, agreed that he had given us the best experience.
Please pass on all of our thanks to him once again. Should I return to Nepal, I can do him no greater credit than to say I would certainly ask to have him as my guide again.
Once again, thank you for your assistance, and I wish you well in the future.
All the best,
I hope all is well in Kathmandu and beyond. I have been promising to do this for a year and have not gotten around to it. But please feel free to include this as a testimonial on your website:
My wife and I booked a trip from Jiri to Everest Base Camp (November 6 – December 5) through Nepal Hiking. We could not have been more impressed with the excellent service we received. From our arrival at Kathmandu airport, we were treated like visiting dignitaries and made to feel special. When the hard work began, our guide Bhim proved to be knowledgeable and friendly with a great sense of humour. Likewise, our porter, Subarna, was a high-strength, sharp wit and consumate card player. Without these two gentlemen, the trip would not have been possible, and they both worked so hard, on the trek and during the evenings, to ensure we had the time of our lives.
If anybody reading this is remotely worried about altitude sickness or the effects of such a potentially arduous trek upon the body, I suggest you don’t be! Our guide was an expert at pointing out weaknesses, checking how we felt and helping us take rests or push on harder as we wished. Then, we had to pass around the chocolate, take pictures and enjoy the scenery. I would also heartily recommend taking the extra time off work and doing the long trek from Jiri. Not only is this a good way of acclimatising to the higher altitude and strengthening, but the countryside is so beautiful and much quieter than from Lukla and above, and the people are so friendly.
If you have time and energy after your trek, a good way to finish off is the Royal Chitwan park, which can also be organised through Nepal Hiking and is a fun way to see tigers, rhinos and a diverse range of birds in beautiful wetland countryside.
Back in the confines of my office, looking over London on a cold Tuesday afternoon, I will always remember the fun we had and the warm welcome we received on the world’s roof.
Just a short, belated note of thanks to you and your team for making our trek so enjoyable.
We were very impressed with how your team looked after us, not only on the trek but also posted the trek, and right up to the moment we left Kathmandu, your guys were assisting us in every way. That sort of backup was certainly not expected nor taken for granted, and we thank you for that.
On the trek, all arrangements were exceptionally well handled by our friends Bikram and Arjun, who smilingly worked together as a team at all times and in no small way ensured our wellness on the trip. Moreover, they consulted with us regarding the itinerary daily. As a result, we were very flexible with our suggestions and kept a watchful eye over us without being over-attentive. We cannot think of a single thing your guys could’ve done to improve the trip.
We will be returning to Nepal in Dec 2010 and will be booking our next adventure with your company.
Thanks once again, Tilak. Best Wishes to you, your family and your team for a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
Happy New Year!!
Please give my warmest regards to Narayan and Krishna. I think about the trek you arranged for Mario and me every day. It was the most amazing experience ever!!! I promise you that someday I will return. And only if I can do the trek with Narayan and Krishna again!!! They were fantastic and a joy to be around!! I love Nepal, and I felt totally at home in your country. I hope I can persuade Mario to return with me. We can’t believe we were there!!! I wish you the very best for the coming year!!!
Just a quick note to thank you for all your help with our trip to Nepal. We had the most fantastic time. All the flights ran smoothly, and thanks for helping with the extra nights at Fishtail Lodge. Most importantly, we couldn’t have asked for a better porter than Krishna.
We have returned to England with very happy memories of your wonderful country.
With best wishes,
Dear future climbers of the Himalayas,
We are the nine people of Korea who successfully finished climbing Island Peak in the Khumbu region. Mr Bikesh Rana and Dendi Sherpa were the guides of us who took charge of the main part of the guide, trekking, logistics, accommodation, food and climbing, etc.
We found the two experts were extremely reliable in every aspect of the campaign. Dendi is an optimistic, pleasuring, and brave expert who carried the campaign into realization. Bikesh is the most caring person we have ever seen before. He controlled all the minutes and times forward to the peak and backward to the airport.
Dendi and Bikesh were the most accountable and capable due for us. Seven porters they hired were as excellent as them. So we were all happy and healthy as the success of the campaign owing to them.
We highly recommend Dendi’s climbing force and hope good luck to you and your campaign.
I enjoyed my Annapurna Sanctuary trek and the high level of service you offered. I also want to say that Tek was a fantastic guide who helped me many times during the trek and was excellent company.
Nepal Hiking also helped me with travel logistics and complications on the ground.
I’m looking forward to another trek with you next year.
Namaste Tilak and Team,
Thank you all for making our second EBC trekking trip in Nepal a lovely experience. Everyone was so friendly, courteous, helpful and professional. The care and attention given to me (Olivia) by Chhabi and Raz when I wasn’t well were very reassuring, and our best interests were always put first.
From the moment we arrived in Kathmandu to the minute we left Kathmandu at the end of our trip, we were extremely well looked after and highly recommended Nepal Hiking to anyone considering visiting Nepal.
With Best Wishes,
Il trekking del Kanchenjunga è lungo e classificato difficile, ma l’ottima organizzazione di Nepal Hiking, la competenza e la capacità di Bikesh Rana ( la nostra guida ) e di tutto lo staff l’hanno reso un’esperienza bella ed indimenticabile.
Tilak inoltre è stato un prezioso aiuto per risolvere i problemi sorti alla fine del trekking a causa dei voli sospesi nel periodo dell’eruzione del vulcano islandese, i quali ci hanno costretto a prolungare il soggiorno di altri quattro giorni.
Sembra che in Nepal ci sia un detto che dice “mai viaggiare in tre […]” e noi eravamo tre, abbiamo avuto qualche contrattempo ma tutto si è risolto per il meglio grazie all’impegno dell’agenzia di trekking.
Ci sentiamo quindi di consigliare Nepal Hiking a chiunque voglia visitare questa mag-nifica nazione.
Nepal Hiking exceeded our expectations by far. Our guide was young but very professional, well trained, and knowledgeable about the trail and working with clients. Likewise, our porter was friendly, hard-working, and well taken care of by the company. Any worries about logistics before starting the trek were quickly sequestered, and we enjoyed a wonderfully planned and executed trip.
Thank you Tilak, Hari, and Ghano!
Just a short note to thank you for arranging a porter/guide for our Everest Base Camp Trip.
Krishna was polite, knowledgeable, helpful, good-humoured and extremely pleasant. Both my son and I appreciated his company.
Oh, and he carried a 20kg pack with ease!
I have no hesitation in recommending Krishna or your company to anyone considering a similar trip.
Back in Australia now.
Thanks for your assistance with our trip.
Bhim was excellent and worked well with our group and the porters I had arranged from Ghorepani.
Please feel free to use me as a reference for any people using your services in Australia.
It has already been a while since we left Nepal, but we want to let you know about our trip.
The trip has been fabulous. What a beautiful region we trekked ourselves! All the mountains, people, clouds, sunshine, colors, butterflies, donkeys, cows, etc.
Krishna was great fun to be around with us. He also did a good job finding the right lodges and gave us good support and information. For example, when we had trouble carrying our bags, Krishna helped us out immediately.
Krishna gave us a lot of information about the region, the people, all the mountain names, etc., etc. Unfortunately, he did not play pool very well. He was beaten by Gem twice!!!!
Thanks for your good services, and say Hi to Krishna,
We had never been to Nepal before or indeed done any trekking. I can honestly say that this was the best holiday ever and made better by Nepal Hiking. The guides, porters, accommodation and food were fabulous. We were also treated to 21 days of blue skies, sunshine, and 4 inches of snow, making a beautiful place even better. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide in Bikram. His professionalism and knowledge were outstanding. He even allowed us to beat him at cards! Also, a huge thanks to Raj, who carried our bags. The whole trip, including our 5 days in Kathmandu, will live in our memories forever, especially the generosity and hospitality of our hosts.
I’m now back in Canada after my travel and trekking in Nepal and India.
I am writing to inform you that our group had a wonderful time doing EBC and Kalapathar trekking with your team.
Basu was a great guide, and Hari, Ram, Krishna and Bhim were wonderful friendly porters. Your reception and the see-off team were also a group of very friendly guys.
What impressed me was that you and your team did not cut corners regarding accommodation and food. Wherever possible, Basu arranged for the best food and accommodation. I can’t say enough about your team’s friendly relationship with us. I can’t wait to join you again for more trekking and Nepal exploration. You may use my email and phone for anyone who wants to know more about your company.
Dear Mr. Tilak B. Thapa Magar!
Thank you for your nice greetings and for having thought of us. I am sorry for the delay in my reply. We somehow had to acclimatise back at home, telling, first of all, everything to family and friends about our trip and showing the photos.
However, we wouldn’t have skipped the chance to thank you for the excellent organisation you provided, the kind and professional people you employ, and for showing us all the beauty your country has to offer.
As you surely remember, I was travelling with my father, and we both had a wonderful time in your country. I found your company/colleagues/employees trustworthy, professional, kind and always eager to help!
We want to thank the drivers, our guide Shankar, and our guide and the porter while trekking to Basu and Hari.
They were more than kind and always helpful and kept watching all our wishes. We liked them a lot, and we became friends. And as far as possible, please pass them our greetings and sincere thanks for having watched over us in the mountains. We will never forget them, and for sure, if there is a next time, we would only want to go trekking with them! Also, please pass the following photos to Basu (or if it is possible to receive his e-mail address, we can send him the photos ourselves) cause I know he would be happy to see them as well.
Special thanks also go out to our guide in Tibet, Tenzin Norbu, who was incredibly helpful and entertaining.
Thank you and everyone on our trek, which made my trip awesome! The trek was better than I expected, and everything went smoothly from start to finish. Our guide Basu was great and very organized. He made sure I was always comfortable and took care of me. The porters did an amazing job and were very friendly. It was fun to join together in the evenings and play cards together. Thank you for making my 50th birthday dream a success. I’m still “high” from experience.
Happy New Year! I hope to come back again with my son.
It was our first time in Nepal, and our choice of using Nepal Hiking wasn’t a mistake. Bhairam was great at customizing the entire trip. Our guide Tirtha was an awesome dude, very helpful and friendly! Note to mention the porters- they were friendly and nice men, we were like among friends on the trip. So I don’t have any complaints because everything they set for the trip was satisfying.
Thanks to Bhairam, it is a hassle-free transaction from A to z. All Q & As, customizations etc., are answered within 24hrs via email, and all itineraries and Infos are readily available on the website.
The trek itself is pretty cool. Off-beaten, beautiful views with unexpected snow at the top. It was a joy to trek in the snow for the first time. Anyway, our guide, Lok, is awesome. He’s knowledgeable, does not pressure us, is very smiley, and motivates us along the way.
This company is made of a responsible crew, from the drivers to our trekking men, tour guide and reps.
You’ve got to experience it to believe it.
We booked a Bhutan Trip through Nepal Hiking via the Internet.
They organised the trip to our wishes and welcomed us at Kathmandu airport. We stayed in a nice hotel in Thamel for one night.
All transfers from the airport to the airport were in nice cars, on time. Nepal Hiking works with an excellent agent in Bhutan (TLF holidays). They organised the perfect trip and took good care of us. We can highly recommend them for any tour/trek in Nepal or Bhutan.
My group and I did a tour with Nepal Hiking this year. Mr Bhairam Thapa replied to all my questions via email. They provided us with very good service during our trip. So I don’t hesitate to recommend this company. Specially thanks to Mr Bhairam.
We have been with Nepal Hiking for the second time now. The first time we travelled to Tibet (private tour – Lhasa – EBC – back to Nepal by a Jeep). This year we did the classic Everest Base Camp Trekking Tour and an excursion to Pokhara and Chitwan. The whole tour was awesome, and the service was excellent. Tilak and Bhairam have organised our tour perfectly good. They are very kind and helpful and have never lost their professionalism. A big thank you goes to our guide Chhabi and our porter Krishna on the trek. They are very kind, helpful, responsible, funny and always take care of us. I can say that I’m a fan of Nepal Hiking. If I ever return to Nepal, I want my tour to be organised by Nepal Hiking again. I appreciate it!
Thank you very much for those unforgettable moments!
Six friends chose to trek to Gokyo Lakes, Chola Pass, and Everest Base Camp. We looked at several companies, and after exchanging initial polite, informative emails, good Trip Advisor reports and previous friends who liked their services, we chose Nepal Hiking — haven’t regretted our decision for one moment.
Bhairam answered all our enquiries promptly, we were given all necessary information before travelling, and their service from beginning to end was faultless, cannot think of anything to complain about them. They even took us to a complimentary Traditional Nepalese Dinner.
Our guides and porters were friendly, charming and helpful, and we heard about the lengthy training they must do before becoming a guide.
At all times, we felt safe. Thank you, Bhairam and everyone in the company very, very much.
