Reviews

Hung Wei, California, USA I did the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek with my friend in Nepal and our adventure of trekking was the most thrilling experience! I and my friend had wanted to come on this holiday for the longest of time and we had decided to go ahead with the trek with Nepal Hiking Team and it was most inspiring! The Annapurna Region is a wonderful place in Nepal for trekking and the views of the mountains from Poon Hill and from Ghorepani were sublime! It was the most relaxing trekking journey and we utterly enjoyed it to the fullest. The accommodations at the trek with the guesthouses and the lodges were comfortable, and I think for us, the absolutely best part of the whole trek was watching the sunrise and the sunset from vantage point at Poon Hill. Our guide had said that the scene of the sun rising and sun setting from behind the mountain was the one not to be missed and it proved to be the best scenes of our entire lives. Watching the sun’s rays slowly spread across the snow of the mountains, it was divine! I am so glad that I have the image of that beautiful scene in my mind now, and to experience it firsthand from the vantage point, that was the most beautiful and angelic sights I had ever witnessed. The trek was wonderful; the people from Nepal Hiking Team who helped us along our trekking journey and made everything easy were very helpful and friendly. Both I and my friend who did the trek with me are very happy with how everything turned out and I recommend Nepal Hiking Team definitely!
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.
