Reviews

Adriaan Willigers, Quastel House 32 Long Lane London, SE1 4AY I had the pleasure of undergoing the Everest Heli tours last February and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I like going through adventure activities and as I found that Nepal Hiking Team also has an arrangement of a helicopter ride to the world’s tallest mountain, I knew that I was going to try it out. So, early in the morning of my scheduled flight, I was called by the managers of Nepal Hiking Team and they made sure that everything was in order and ready to go. I was then taken to the airport and then, as I boarded the helicopter, the adventure had begun. The flight of the helicopter from Kathmandu to Khumbu was the most beautiful flight. I loved looking at the change of sceneries down below, the sight of the city faded away and instead, there were green forests and wide open spaces. Looking at the sights from the helicopter was surreal. As I neared Everest, the whole scenery was breath-taking. The snowy mountain peak looked like stacks of frozen fudge! The white uneven terrain of the mountain is hard to describe! I looked at the villages and the Tengboche monastery as well, they were very nice to look at. Overall, the flight lasted for about three hours and I was safely back at my hotel after it was finished. But, despite it only being for a short amount of time, I still really have the whole experience of it stuck in my mind very vividly. I still can feel the cold mountain air and look at the sights as if I am going through it right at this very moment. Nepal Hiking Team did a fantastic job of arranging and managing the entire thing, I did not have any sort of problems or hassles at all during my trip. The staff and the managers were very helpful and polite, guiding for the trip and steering me to the right direction regarding the trip. For an amazing experience, I am eternally grateful for NHT, and I would definitely recommend Nepal Hiking Team for anybody who is looking for a good travel agency because, in my opinion, NHT is as good as you’re going to get.
Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
