What Other Travelers Say About This

First of all we would say some comments about our fantastic guide Purna. He knows always the right way, we never lost. He was always very helpful especially in difficult situations, so to cross over the passes. He has good timing for the ways. He was also very helpful all other things and very friendly. He is an excellent guide.

Everything was just perfect, nice people, tough workers and beautiful landscape. Just I think the personal must wear better equipment like gloves, mountain shoes etc.

We spent 2 months in Nepal with 3 different treks and stays of several days in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan. In the Annapurna area we saw the hard life of the Nepali. We were fascinated by the beautiful hikes and the unique view of the 8,000 meter peaks of the Annapurna range. Then in the Khumbu area the big highlight, the crossing of the Chola Pass and the ascent of the Kalapathar with a view of Mt. We were accompanied on all treks by a competent, helpful and friendly guide and porter. We put the whole package together and booked it with Trekking Experts in April 2016. Trekking Experts has organized everything to our satisfaction (guides and porters, all transfers, hotel booking, flights). We were very well looked after by Dinesh Tamang.

Perfect guide and porter!

“Competent and always helpful guide. Good support in case of emergency of sickness. Flexible reaction to actual situations. Good choice of lodges.

“I had a great experience with Sonam (guide) and would recommend him/the company to everyone planning a trip to Mt. Everest Base Camp. The whole trip has been very organized. Thank you so much.
