Reviews

Roselyn Plummer, Australia My family of six decided to vacation in Nepal in the beginning of spring this year and Nepal Hiking Team was recommended to us by a friend who had done the Everest Base Camp with the agency before. It was the best vacation for us because we were given easy routes during the trek. The best thing about the service was that our guides, Arun and Paban, were both very co-operative and helped along each and every step of the way for my family. During the hikes, we had the freedom of adjusting our paces and we were provided with good services at the guesthouses and the lodges as well. It was a great way to spend time with the family and everyone really enjoyed the views of the Himalayas as well. The kids enjoyed the hikes and the scenery of the Everest, while me and my wife loved how everything was taking place in a very problem-free manner. Luckily, none of got sick during the journey and the whole time was spent with just us enjoying the moments. It was an exemplary holiday for my family and we made good friends with our guides. Our thanks also goes to our porters as well who hauled our heavy bags across the mountains. Mr. Ganga also met us at the airport for the welcome and the goodbye. We were complimented with a delicious goodbye celebration dinner at the end of the trip, which was very considerate of the agency. We are grateful to Nepal Hiking Team, to our guides, our porters and everybody who were involved in the trip. We would definitely be choosing NHT again if we decide to have another vacation in Nepal in the future!
Jonathan, USA The team NHT provided the best possible service. They were attentive in every aspect in the months leading up to the trek through emails and were responsive and thorough in addressing my questions and concerns. During our tour, Bheg (our guide) and our porter were there to take care of our (myself and one other trekker) needs and always smile and graciously. I have used other more expensive and well-known trekking teams in the Himalayas in the past and would rank NHT on an equal or higher plain. Bheg has many years of experience, as did our porter, and was very competent in their roles and Bheg in his knowledge of the area and the trek. Though our porter did not speak very much, Bheg was kind enough to translate when asked, and our porter was equally attentive in assisting Bheg and us to ensure a successful trek. Very competitive price and an excellent team and experience. I highly recommend them.
Marcello, Brazil Nepal is one of the places in the world everybody MUST go. I've been to Nepal 3 times in just five years. Living in Brazil, so far away from Nepal, I wouldn't travel so much to the country had I not enjoyed the place very much. It's the best place in the world for trekking, and the people are amazing, the food is delicious, and the views of the Himalayas are gorgeous. I book my tours with Nepal Hiking Team, which is a reliable company. The first time I visited Nepal, I booked my trek to Annapurna Base Camp and an overland tour to Tibet. Everything was previously arranged. Nothing to worry about. They applied for the permits, put me in a group (we are requested to join a group to enter Tibet), and booked a perfect hotel in Kathmandu. One month ago, I traveled to Nepal to trek the Annapurna Circuit and the Nar-Phu trek. For the second time, I booked my tour with Nepal Hiking Team. I went trekking in a very remote area with scenic spots and charming villages. In the middle of the trek, I began to feel a little uncomfortable by the cold weather, and my left foot was in pain, so I had to finish my hike earlier than expected. I told my guide I was not feeling good, and then Nepal Hiking Team gave me all support I needed on my way back to Kathmandu. NHT care of everything, so you can enjoy your trek with no worries. From the moment you are picked up at the airport to the moment you leave the country, you are in good hands. Their representatives will greet you at the airport, and you'll soon be briefed on everything about the trek you are going to enjoy. Guides from the Nepal Hiking Team are helpful and speak excellent English. I especially recommend Raj, a friendly guide, and Lalman if you want to request a Porter. Both do an outstanding job. So, if you're going to have a great time in Nepal, be sure to choose Nepal Hiking Team as your local travel agency from beginning to end. It's a reliable company, and I recommend it.
Sara, sweden We went on Everest Base Camp trek with Gokyo Lake back in March of 2019. When I first contact NHT, they were so nice enough to have an hour long chat on what’s app arranging a trip for us for late autumn of that year. However, due to personal reason, we decided to go on a trip earlier than the planned date. NHT had only few weeks to make all the preparations. But they managed everything smoothly. From our hotel reservation to flight tickets and guesthouse on the trek, everything was planned out carefully. We were thoroughly impressed with how they organized everything in a short notice. Ganga, was very polite and always accessible to have chat whenever we were on the trek. From the beginning to the end of our trek, Ganga made sure everything was Ok with us. Also, we cannot forget Bhim our guide on the trek. He made us laugh all through the journey. He is very skilled and has lots of knowledge about mountains and about the people and culture. Because of him and his good network of people, we were able to enjoy the local experience of the Everest region. Also, our porter, who spoke who very took good care of us. Whenever, we stopped on the trek, he always asking if our bag were heavy on us. Everything went well on the trek because of these two amazing people. If our friends or relatives ever decide to visit Nepal, we will strongly recommend them to go with NHT and to choose Bhim. I am forever grateful towards everyone involved in organizing our trek. We completely enjoyed our trek and had exceptionally wonderful time in the Himalayas. These people are professional and know what they are doing. So if anyone is looking for a reliable and a good travel agency in Nepal, they should not hesitate to go with Nepal Hiking Team. They really are the best!
Mark, USA My family of four went to Everest Base Camp just before the pandemic hit the world. It was a long-awaited family vacation. We go camping whenever we can. But my teen boys were worried about being in the remote mountains for two weeks. Nonetheless, they were still up for a challenge. We knew about Nepal Hiking Team through a family friend. They previously did one of their treks and had only lovely things to say about their services. And we, too, listening to their experience, contacted Nepal Hiking Team for our family vacation. They were cautious with our requests and requirements. They were quick in responding to our questionable amount of inquiries. They were always thorough and prompt. Likewise, our pill of happiness and motivation, our guide Bhim was always there to encourage us whenever we felt it wasn't easy to go forward. He assured us we could finish the journey, and we did too. He never forgot to remind us to stay hydrated and that also on an hourly basis. He routinely checked our pulses to check our oxygen level and was always asking if we needed anything. The trekking team took good care of us during the trek. As much as our safety was given a priority, they made sure we were enjoying our trek as well. He was a master of trekking and had every bit of information about the mountains. He knew the mountains' names and continued to amaze us with his knowledge of mountains and their people. Our family vacation was fantastic, and its praise goes to the company and our talented guide Bhim. Without him and our robust porters, we would not enjoy the mountains' beauty to the fullest. We are happy that we went with our friend's recommendation and choose NHT for our extraordinary journey. We plan to visit again when all the commotion caused by the virus subsides.
