Twelve years ago, Nepal Hiking Team wonderfully organized a solo trek from Jiri to Everest Base Camp that was transformative to my life and worldview.
Just recently, I made my way back to Nepal and again to the organizational finesse of this talented crew. Ganga and Balaram have grown NHT into an incredibly viable company that meets the needs of trekkers while engaging in philanthropic endeavors that support local Nepalese, their communities, and their ways.
My guide, Ram Sapkota, and porter, Nabaraj Thapa, ensured my safety each step of the way and enabled me to push myself during our daily ventures. Through humor, sincerity, humility, and authenticity, these gentlemen introduced me to this semi-arid desert with its incredible vistas and varied landscapes, rich Tibetan influenced cultural history, and a variety of monasteries and temples that are unique to the former Kingdom of Lo. All of the careful arrangements allowed for stress-free trekking, engaging encounters with locals and my guides, and wonderful stays at a variety of unique and exceptional tea and guesthouses.
Guides are required for this region, as is a special visa and NHT is the most reliable and knowledgeable company when it comes to visiting this hidden gem. If you are looking for something truly unique in Nepal, support local business and trust Nepal Hiking Team to plan your Upper Mustang Trek and you will not be disappointed!
