Highly recommended trip guide in Nepal. Reasonable price with great services. We are accompanied by Kumar, who is very friendly, experienced, responsible, helpful and also always giving us encourage during the trip. Definitely will ask for them if I come back to Nepal.
I am a 51 year old female and seeing the Himalayas has always been on my bucket list. My niece and I planned this trip last moment, and we both met up in Kathmandu. We started the Trek from there and finished 14 days later. We had a wonderful guide named Rajan and we also had one Porter between the two of us. We had a private Trek and I must say it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Rajan was a wonderful guide, took us to some places that other guides hadn't taken their clients, and we had the most wonderful time. We always felt safe, comfortable, and well taken care of. Should I go back, I'm definitely going to request Rajan as a guide. Everything was as expected, the food was fine, the accommodation was fine, and since I had researched well in advance, I knew what I was getting into. The Trek was very strenuous, but because it was a private trek we were able to go at our own pace and didn't have to rush. One of the owners of the company we dealt with was Dipendra, he was always quick to respond to our emails and his communication was great. We appreciated that since going to a foreign country we weren't sure what we were getting into and he laid everything out clearly. I had one of the best times of my entire life, as did my niece. I hope to visit the region again someday only, I will probably do a different trek. I would use this company again, most definitely. They are reliable, dependable, affordable and take very good care of their clients. I highly recommend. They went out of their way to give us a great experience.
Truly thankful to be able to experience such a beautiful, pristine trail on my first hiking trip, made even more special by the guides and porters who took excellent care of us on the trip. The trail itself was breathtaking, with gradual changes in terrain, vegetation and temperature, and punctuated by quaint little villages and friendly faces greeting "Namaste" along the way to energise the tired hiker. We covered almost 20km each day but it felt manageable because there was always something new to look forward to. Our guides, especially Shankar, were very experienced and kept us entertained on the hike with their knowledge of the flora and fauna as well as geography and cultural makeup of the area. Our group were genuinely moved by their warm hospitality throughout the 15-day trek and patience in responding to our (all 14 of us!) many questions and requests, even playing nurse when some of us got injured (our own folly!) on the trek. They, together with the 7 porters, were extremely thoughtful and always went out of their way to make sure we were as comfortable and happy as possible from the moment we arose to the moment we retired every day. Despite not being able to complete the circuit due to heavy snowfall at Larke Pass, the trail had much to offer, even on the way back. It also means I have to go back :) Many thanks to Shankar and Krishna aka KK (our guides) for being so caring and putting us first throughout the entire trip, and also to Dipendra for being such a superb host and arranging such an unforgettable experience! I cannot recommend them enough. I will definitely be back!
The Manaslu Circuit Trek offers a very beautiful and scenic trail all the way, glacial waters, green valleys, snow-capped mountains, watching the villagers go about their everyday life, the donkeys, the goats, the chickens, the ducks, and yak, and many many more! The trail starts off at a low altitude which is around 700m and gradually gets higher every day, around an elevation gain of 1000m per day, which is good for those who fear they might get hit by altitude sickness. Accommodations are good enough (not too basic) that we felt comfortable in our stays in all the different guest houses we were at for the duration of the trail. At the same time, there isn't a lot of tourist which makes this perfect for me as I wasn't keen on being on a trek that is crowded. Our guides, Shankar and Krishnan (KK) were very experienced, always making sure our safety and well-being was well taken care of which includes them taking our meal orders, being our waiters to serve food to our table and ALWAYS ALWAYS making sure we are comfortable all the time. Needless to say, will certainly miss both of them and their Nepalise hospitality for sure!
Excellent from start to finish. A seamless experience from arrival to departure. Dipendra was excellent on his communication. He always replied very promptly and with good information. We were always looked after exceptionally well whether in Kathmandu, on the trail or in the tea houses. Our main guide Rajan was so caring and lovely. He always had our best interests at heart. A bit like a mother hen looking after her brood. It was very tough at times, and very cold at nights , some of us suffered at times but with patience and care from Rajan and his team of fellow guide and three porters who were all great, we made it to Everest base camp. Now it was my birthday the day we got to EBC, Rajan had arranged a birthday cake with candles and carried it for two days from the last bakery, what an amazing gesture. Above and beyond the call of duty. A big thank you to all the team. If you want to trek in the Himalayas, look no further these are THE guys to go with.
