Reviews

Antti Sakari Lehtelae, Finland

I travelled with Nepal Hiking Team for the gorgeous Annapurna Base Camp Trek on March and it was one of the best trips that I did with my friends! I knew that I had selected the right travel agency as the correspondence with Mr. Ganga and Mr. Balaram right from the start was a smooth and information-rich communication where all of my queries were promptly answered. I was impressed with their services from the very beginning, as their ideas helped me and my friends arrange the trip in a very well-organized and trouble-free manner. Then as the day we arrived at Nepal, we were greeted by Mr. Ganga himself who welcomed us with flower garlands. We met our guide Bhatta as well, who helped us get to the Hotel in Kathmandu.

The whole trip was filled with unforgettable experiences, as from the very beginning- the trek was filled with our guide helping us achieve the ultimate level of care and comfort. Bhatta and the porters who were with us were always glad to be of help at all times. It was so impressive to see our porters carrying heavy loads uphill without complaints or stopping- it was a humbling experience for us and we implore all future travelers to Nepal to hire local porters and to tip them generously for their hard work. Likewise, Bhatta himself was also extremely helpful to us- it was because of him that our journey became even more amusing and delightful. He would always spout ideas and information about the small chortens and gumbas we passed, along with the village and the culture of the people. He arranged the guesthouses and the meals for us without us having to bear any hassles.

The Himalayan views were just the most thrilling part of the trip; the first view of the Machhapuchhre Himal from Pokhara was the hammer to the nail that the trip was going to be a grand adventure! To sum the conclusion in short- Nepal Hiking Team really is the best travel agency operating in the country, and we had one of our best times in Nepal thanks to the care of the agency and its team. We got to experience the beauty of the Annapurna because of them in a very wholesome manner without any sort of problems. It was an amazing adventure that we would like to recommend to everyone who wishes to visit Nepal any time soon. Thank You Nepal Hiking Team!
Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Nepal Hiking Team

As a solo female traveler, I recently did the beautiful Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Nepal Hiking Team. I chose NHT once again for my trip to Nepal this year as I was immensely impressed with the services I got when I trekked with them last year as well for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The natural scenery of the Annapurna Trek was one of the things among others that really caught my attention during the journey. The variety of the trail that I walked upon with my guide was also an impressive feature that made the journey a rich and enlightening experience for me. During the first few days, I found myself trekking through lush forests with narrow brooks cutting across the land while the next- I would be going uphill and downwards along mountain trails with the rice-fields and terrace farms serving as the amazing backdrop. Furthermore, the gorgeous Annapurna mountain ranges with mountain peaks like the Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre and Hiunchuli among others were almost always in sight throughout my journey. They were inspiring and totally worth the journey! When I reached Base Camp, nothing really prepared me for the stunning 360-degree landscape that the Annapurna Sanctuary offered. I honestly think it beats Everest Base Camp in the ‘most beautiful landscape’ category! In my opinion, the ABC trek is easily one of the most picturesque treks and you will certainly end up taking loads of photos as I did! My guide was just the most amazing travel companion- he was kind and patient with me and made me feel safe and secure. Although, I do admit, the rocky terrain was quite challenging and hard on the knees, helped me take it easy on the steep ascent from Tikhedhunga to Ulleri. But despite that, it was definitely one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my lifetime, and I’m really grateful to Nepal Hiking Team for organizing this trip for me. Mr. Balaram arranged all my trek logistics beautifully, and I was in constant contact with the office, just a phone call away if any problems arose. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Nepal Hiking Team was without a doubt- a spectacular trek–one that I will always recommend to those who want to do a hike up in the Himalayas for the first time.

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. Datta Trip done between 9th to 18th May 2022
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"
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!     You can also read this review on trip advisor.
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. See this review on TripAdvisor (click here)
