Just got back from Nepal a couple of days ago, where my partner and I were doing an Everest Base Camp Trek assisted by Nepal Hiking Team. Their service couldn’t have been better. I started planning this trip last Spring and looked at numerous trekking companies. Chose NHT due to the tremendously positive reviews on them, the professionalism of their website, and the quick response I got from Ganga when I sent an initial inquiry via their website — he phoned me within a few hours, apparently as soon as the morning had come round to Nepal (given the time difference between North America and Nepal). He was extremely helpful and responsive from the start, all the way through the completion of our trek and the last couple of days back in Kathmandu. Our guide for the trek, Bhim, couldn’t have been more helpful and took very good care of us and kept us safe. The whole operation and experience couldn’t have been more positive.

We recently returned from an EPIC trekking adventure to Everest Base Camp with the Nepal Hiking Team. Due to some time restraints we trekked on the cusp of the season, started our trek on 30th Aug, and returned to Kathmandu on the 10th of Sept, and what a great decision that was! The weather was amazing, we had most of the tea-houses to ourselves, our guides were on their first trip after the second wave of the covid 19. So it was great for them as well to witness everything as if for the first time. If you prefer a more ‘quiet’ trek, then I would recommend going on the cusp of the season! Our guide Raj of Nepal Hiking Team, did everything in his power to make the trip a most memorable trip and our wonderful porter who’s name happens to be ‘Love’ totally lived up to his name! I cannot thank the Nepal Hiking Team enough for all their prep work, the guide’s knowledge and caring for our welfare, and Ganga, the father of the group who personally met us at the airport and made sure that all our needs were met. What a great team, I highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team for your future Himalayan trekking!

Nepal Hiking Team provide an excellent guide to me when I hiked Everest Base Camp. My guide, Mr. Prakesh Rai, is very professional and caring… He always gives me very informative replies whenever I have a question or two about the terrain which we are trekking, the history of certain towns or places we passed by or stayed…He is always asking how I am (my old right ankle injury came back)…and will help me carry my load….
We had a good time together especially when we take photographs of the awesome scenery…..He works tirelessly and would be a concern for my diet and always asked me if I had enough of food, hows my leg was, and whether feeling ok especially when we are going towards a higher altitude….. We had a wonderful acclimatization climb and he is always observing me how I am doing.
Nepal Hiking Team rocks!…. And I would sincerely recommend my friends to this group…..
It’s simply awesome!…
Thank you Nepal Hiking team and it’s truly a great experience traveling with your professional guide!
It was an awesome experience in Nepal, in which a big part of my trip was covered in the mountain, thank to NHT.
Ganga, the company manager has been engaging since my enquiry and very efficient and patient with all my queries. They are flexible to customize to my needs due to my planned itinerary besides hiking. They also made arrangement for airport pick up and Ganga met me in person in my lodge to go through the procedures and discussion.
2 days prior to the trek it was raining heavily and many flights were cancelled. We were lucky to tag along a rescue helicopter to Lukla, also thank to Ganga’s arrangement.
When we arrived at the start point, we were welcome by the friendly guide and porters. My relationship with Gurung, the guide was very good, he took care of me every single bit of the trip, as I was a slow walker in the team. He would check our conditions from time to time to ensure our well beings. Gurung and I joked around in the tea houses and we made many friends and some exchange of cultural knowledge.
I was not well when I returned from Base Camp. We discussed and we decided that an evacuation was needed. Gurung visited me in the hospital and sent me back to the hotel after discharge. I had a farewell lunch with him. Ganga and Hari, the 2 managers visited me on the 2 days and they even sent me to the hospital again for report collection. Hari also sent me to the airport on my departure day.
I have total satisfaction and heart-felt appreciation for Nepal Hiking Team. There were other companies who tried to compromise prices and quality but not NHT, who insisted on quality and care above all.
I’m back in Singapore safely. And they are keeping in contact with me on some follow-ups.
I truly want to recommend you this company for their awesome service given the reasonable if not attractive price!
This trip was so awesome although I had some hiccups on my decent. I miss Nepal alot, and the friendship shared.
I finished the ABC and Bhutan Tours with Nepal Hiking Team and had a very good time. It was a great pleasure dealing with Balaram and Ganga. They are extremely professional, flexible, and accommodating. prior to the trip, I had been constantly emailing Balaram with my questions, whether or not they are directly related to the trek. Balaram was always extremely responsive with detailed answers and he was always patient. When I first got to Kathmandu, both Ganga and Balaram met me at the hotel to greet me. Throughout the trip, they constantly checked up with the guide to make sure that everything went okay. Overall, the trek was well organized and I can say with confidence that the team has done their best to ensure that my needs were met. I am already thinking about coming back to Nepal for my next trek and I will certainly go with Nepal Hiking Team again.
My wife and I did the Everest Base Camp Trek as organized by Nepal Hiking Team. We read guidebooks and numerous websites leading up to this trip, but nothing quite captured the awesomeness of just being there in person. Each day of our trek was physically and mentally exhausting, but our guide saw to it that we were looked after – be it on the trail, dining, or settling in at the lodge each night. Nepal Hiking Team did a fantastic job for us; I could not be happier with how this trip was organized, and how Balaram and Ganga took care of us.
Organised this trip from Australia with very limited trekking experience. Ganga and his team were extremely professional and approachable in answering our questions and providing guidance. The travel itinerary was tailor-made to suit our dates. The accommodation in Kathmandu was excellent, accommodation along the trek was the best available and our guide and porter were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Our flight to Lukla was cancelled and our guide Mr Bim had organised a helicopter within a few moments. Felt very safe and secure with the local knowledge and expertise. The Nepal Hiking Team look after you from start to finish; meeting you at the airport with a garland of flowers and wishing you farewell with a Nepalese scarf. We were a party of three from Ireland and thoroughly enjoyed our trip.
Couldn’t recommend this company highly enough. I will be advising anyone from Ireland to use this local company for sheer value and professionalism!!

I was with Nepal Hiking Team in spring this year, doing the Upper Mustang Trek. I choose this company for all the good reviews. Because of this, I was expecting good services from them, and they did not disappoint! When I landed at the Kathmandu airport, I was greeted by Ganga and his team with flower garlands. Then I was transferred to my hotel. As the trek started from Jomsom, I knew that I had made the right choice going with NHT because of their constant reassurance and care that they showed thought the initial days of my time with them. I loved my Kathmandu and Pokhara tour, and even more beautiful was the trek at Mustang itself. I have never seen or experienced such fantastic culture and practices anywhere else, and it was so new and refreshing for me. I was with my guide, Raj, who was my trusted companion on the entire journey. He was unique and brilliant and so funny- he made the trek ten times better than it would have been otherwise. I am so thankful to Nepal Hiking Team for fulfilling my desire for a beautiful trip. I cannot emphasize enough how much I enjoyed my time with them and how much I look forward to joining them again in the future.
