Our guide and porter significantly enriched our experience trekking in Nepal

Caine and Hanna, USA

We did a 14 day Annapurna Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team 28 Apr – 12 May 2022. Communication leading up to the trip was fantastic, and we felt we had all the information we needed for this big adventure, one we’d never done the likes of before!

We had Indra as a guide and Gakul as a porter and they were such great company. We learned so much more about the wilderness, region, and country we were traveling through because of them! Card games, board games, words, culture, we learned so much just hiking and chatting with Indra and Gakul.

At almost every teahouse, we managed to get a bed that could sleep two, which was a pleasant surprise. We always had pomegranate seeds and apple slices for dessert, courtesy of our guide and porter. Ordering food and arranging accommodation was a breeze with them helping us.

Other groups we saw hiking on their own looked like they had a good time, but they mostly socialized amongst themselves. With our guide and porter, we got to meet other guides and porters and learn about where they came from, which made the experience much deeper and more authentic to us.

We were on the fence about hiring a company to help us with the trek, but are so glad we went with Nepal Hiking Team!

Would 100% hire them again for our next trek.

Everest BC in 2022

Madhu, India

After coming across many excellent reviews about Nepal Hiking Team, I decided on a whip pretty much to just go ahead with this one. But, in all fairness, I was pretty surprised and warmly pleased with the assistance of Ganga, especially the people who were all very friendly and helped me a lot on my trek.

I loved the scenery of the trek and the experience of going to Nepal, being among the local people, and seeing all the wonderful surroundings; it was very memorable. NHT is a great trekking agency, and I approve of it.

I will surely be taking their help if I ever decide to have another go at trekking in the future! Big thanks to Bhim Guide and Ganga – Owner of this outfit.

Everest Base Camp – Amazing Guide Arun

Pamela, Australia

Nepal Hiking Team proved to be effective from the moment of my arrival at the airport. The guide for my trek, Arun, was very good and he was jovial to be around. So, I enjoyed myself a lot. The package that I selected for the Everest Base Camp Trek was very reasonably priced and I did not have any sort of unnecessary hassle along the trek as well, everything just went by super smoothly and quite fast too!! I love travelling, and have taken to many travel agencies, and I must say, Nepal Hiking Team comes under one of those who provide good services to the people who take its help. Definitely a five-star rating!

Choose Nepal Hiking Team if any of you are planning for the trek in Nepal, I definitely recommend!

A Very Reliant Agency! 

Nicky N Prasad, Australia

I had always wanted to do the Everest Trek, and when I finally had the opportunity, I was delighted with enthusiasm! I think I am also fortunate to have been in the company of Nepal Hiking Team because they gave me no reason whatsoever to companion about anything at all.

Every service I received was top-notch, and I was always provided the best available services, from the food and guesthouses to the porter and guiding services.

My guide was Paban, and he was very proficient at his work. He made sure that I was comfortable and had everything I needed.

The trip was terrific, and I am so glad I was with NHT! Their prompt responses, their kind gestures, and the best organization of the trip had me convinced that I was with the professionals from the very beginning.

My recommendation goes to Nepal Hiking Team for being one of Nepal’s most reliant tour agencies!

 

Family Trip to Annapurna Base Camp

Jayadatta Narasipura, USA

Dear Ganga and the entire team,

We, Narasipura family would like to thank you and your team for making once in a lifetime experience possible. All three of us loved every minute we spent in the Himalayas and Nepal. After my EBC trek, I wanted to experience Himalayas again with my family. Your team made it possible.

Every day, we knew what to expect because Paban explained us on previous evening and in the morning. In seven days, we trekked in the lush green forest, saw numerous waterfalls, were inside the clouds, refreshed ourselves in the river and stream water, took multiple breaks with tea, coffee.

Even though it was very hard, especially from 3rd to 5th day, we managed to get over the fatigue to continue because of Paban, Gokul and Ganesh’s help and encouragement. They used to tell us to take it easy (Aaramse jayenke) then we can do it, no need to rush. Paban modified the plan/itinerary based on the time of the day and our physical condition. We always ended the day before 5pm. Paban was flexible and booked the best teahouses, he made our trek very enjoyable. On fourth day, we were scheduled to trek to Upper Sinuwa. He changed it, we stayed at Lower Sinuwa. Because of 4th day’s change of plan, he modified fifth day trek too.

Every day, as soon as we woke up, we started off with a hot cup of coffee or tea, they served to us without fail. Enjoying first few minutes of the day looking the sunrise in the mountains with a hot drink was so peaceful and relaxing. At the end of every day, we had fun, talking, playing cards, and having delicious dinner with fresh fruits as dessert. It was a beautiful experience. Paban, Gokul and Ganesh treated us royally and with respect, we are grateful to them.

Spending last two days of our trek in the Machapuchare and Annapurna basecamps were a bliss, surrounded by the Annapurna mountain range was just amazing, and unbelievable.

On the last day of the trip, we loved the cultural tour of the three cities, we were mesmerized by the artwork.

Hope we can come back and enjoy Nepal again.

We appreciate everything you did for us to accomplish our dream trek.

Trek to Everest with Dinesh

Richard, UK

“After extensive research regarding which trekking company to entrust with helping me with my dream holiday I chose The Nepal Hiking Team.

This was for a number of reasons.

  1. Ganga and his team were super flexible, quick to respond, and allowed me to build a bespoke holiday that suited my schedule.
  2. When things went wrong at my end, they were quick to come up with solutions to help me out
  3. They understood this was a once in a lifetime experience for me, and answered my many and varied questions.

Once I arrived in Nepal it was immediately clear I had made the right decision.

I was picked up from the airport, and driven to the hotel where I met Ganga and my guide Dinesh.

Dinesh checked that the equipment I had brought with me was suitable, and NHT provided me a down jacket.

The next day we flew out of Kathmandu, to EBC and Island Peak.

Dinesh looked after me for the next 12 days in the mountains.

He is an expert on the local area. Point at any mountain, and he can tell you how high it is and what its name is.

He has travelled extensively over the area for more than 8 years, and he uses this knowledge to enrich your holiday experience.

Every hotel you stay in, he knows the owners, and ensures you get a comfortable room.

Need your washing done, or a hot shower? He will recommend where (and where not!) to get it done.

When you are walking the trails he can tell you how much further you have to go, what bits will be difficult, and which easier.

If you are looking to book with Nepal Hiking, and are lucky enough to have Dinesh as a guide then you are going to have a fabulous trip”

Amazing trek from start to finish!

Walt Risley, USA

When searching for a trekking company I wanted to go with a local group. All the reviews for Nepal Hiking Team were excellent so I choose them. From start to finish they had their act together. Initial correspondence and any email questions were answered by Ganga, the man in charge, by the next day. They kept me up to date with everything I needed as far as entry into Nepal. Picked me up from the airport and got me to my hotel without an issue. I joined a couple from Canada for the trek. Our guide Prakash never left our side from breakfast to dinner.

He expedited the flight to and from Lukla which would have been a hectic process without him. Since all of us were in our 50s he established early that we would be in no rush. Whether we got to our next location at 2pm or 4pm didn’t matter. I would rather be outside enjoying the trek than in early playing cards. I felt safe and looked after with him. This trek is tough. It’s much steeper than I anticipated and the altitude change from place to place does not reflect the ascents and descents which on some days doubles the heights you actually do.

They ascents into Tengbouche and at Dugla pass are particularly tough but at a slow steady pace they are doable by any who are reasonably fit. Once at the guest house the service didn’t end there. Prakash took care of all our needs. Making sure we had enough to eat and enough water. He wouldn’t leave our side until we turned in for the night which was often quite early. His personality was very soothing.

We could not have accomplished what we did without him or our 2 porters. While English was not their strength, they would carry our gear ahead of us to the next location and often double back to see if we needed help and were more than happy to help with our day packs. They also accompanied us on some of the acclimation hikes in case some or one of us wanted to climb higher, splitting us up. After the trek everything was taken care of.

I needed a PCR COVID test for a tour in Abu Dahbi the day after I left Kathmandu and Ganga arranged for a nurse to administer it to me in the hotel. Seamless. It’s a long review but I really can’t say enough about these guys, especially for the price. For all the service we got it was amazingly reasonable. Would definitely use this company on any return trip to Nepal and highly recommend!

Highly recommend Annapurna Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team

Nicola Ross, Australia

The Annapurna circuit trek was one of the best treks I’ve ever experienced. I completed it with my sister (we are both in our early sixties) on a private tour in April 2022. It was very well organized by Nepal Hiking Team, a very professional organization. Nina provided wonderful advice on the trip initially.

Our guide, Hari was experienced, attentive, capable, and kind. He made the trip a success for us, along with Nomoratz, our porter, who carried our gear with such good humour. The Himalayas are the most majestic mountain range in the world.

The trek was very strenuous and challenging, (more for me than my sister) but was such a wonderful experience. We have learned so much about Hinduism and Buddhism and have developed a great affection and respect for the Nepalese people. They are wonderful hosts with a rich culture we have enjoyed learning about.

I highly recommend this company, our guide, and porter if you are considering trekking in Nepal. This country offers real adventure, beauty, and cultural experiences to those who venture here.
