We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.

I completed the 14 day Annapurna Circuit early December 2022, thank you so much to Surya and Rabin, who both went out of their way to make this trip, that I'd been planning so long,and  memorable. They were always checking in with me during the hike

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
