Manaslu Circuit Trek with Nepal Hiking Team
Meredith Thurstans, Australia
We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Nepal Hiking Team. They were very professional and helpful from the first email enquiry sent to them. Every question we had was answered promptly and courteously.
We missed our connecting flight from Kuala Lumpur through to Kathmandu, and were delayed by a full day. Ganga and his team rescheduled our trip without any problem to us at all. They were amazing. Every time we ended a trek we were met by Ganga, regardless of the time of day.
The guide we had for our Kathmandu tour, was extremely knowledgeable and informative and there were certainly a lot of interesting things to see and do in Kathmandu.
We then proceeded on our Manaslu Circuit Trek with our guide Bim and our 3 porters. I can’t recommend Nepal Hiking Team highly enough. The guides and porters were informative, helpful, observant, and fun as well. The trek was definitely an experience of a lifetime; I would highly recommend it. The Larkya La Pass was at times strenuous, but Bim and our porters made sure that we were safe, had no altitude sickness and we were able to complete this challenging feat.
After our Manaslu Circuit trek, we spent a day traveling back to Kathmandu and then headed off to our Everest Panorama Trek. Once again, Bim our guide accompanied us, we certainly could not have negotiated our way through the ticketing and confusion of Kathmandu airport and upon our arrival we were greeted by our new porters. Our trek in the Everest region was wonderful, although more touristy than Manaslu.
The efforts of our guide and porters were definitely appreciated, they certainly helped in every way that they could, even helping us sterilize water through a mechanical filter. They were very flexible with our accommodation and every request however small was accommodated with a smile. Our guide was an experienced trekker, had a really great sense of humor, and an in depth knowledge of the areas that we were trekking in.
Nepal Hiking Team come with my very highest recommendation.
