What our customers say about us

A wonderful challenge with a great company

Being the wrong side of 70 the only thing left on my bucket list was to see Mount Everest. I noticed that Nepal Mountain Trekkers did a trek up to the Hotel Everest View which was just what I wanted. Well. I chose the right company. Ramesh and his team are very experienced and they are also lovely people. Right from the outset Ramesh was brilliant. He planned my trek and always promptly answered all my questions. I was going to hire a duffel bag, sleeping bag and quilt jacket but they happened to have spares so lent me those. He couldn’t have done more to help. My guide Suman met me at the airport on arrival and nobody could have looked after me better during the whole experience. When plans went slightly awry ie. cancelled flights Suman was always able to come up with the best alternatives. He is a lovely man, he carried my bags all the way, and couldn’t have looked after me better. I’ve had a wonderful challenging experience and I thank Nepal Mountain Trekkers for it.

Fantastic Nepal Adventure

Namaste,

My daughter and I recently returned from a fantastic trip to Nepal where we trekked in the Himalayas to view Mount Everest, toured Katmandu and took a jeep safari in Bardhia National Park.

We highly recommend contacting Ramesh at Nepal Mountain Trekkers to assist you with coordinating and organizing your travel plans while in Nepal. Ramesh will customize your trip to your wishes and comfort levels before you arrive or when you arrive (with flexibility in mind). He will provide you with experienced guides for trekking and or sight seeing. We were so thankful to be greeted at the airport upon arrival knowing we had local people able to assist us with any questions and challenges that might arise. Ramesh and our guide Min were exceptional at this.

Ramesh and Min were not only very experienced and knowledgable with trekking but were also a wealth of information about the culture and customs in Nepal. They were kind, gracious, always made us feel safe along with having a sense of humour. We also very much appreciated our porter Harka who so graciously helped with carrying our personal items while trekking in the Himalayas.

The farewell lunch was a nice touch to end off an amazing trip.

Thank you

Atemberaubend und immer wieder schön .

Everest view Trekk mit schönen Aussichten und einem Guide, der auf alles achtet. Ich bin immer wieder in Nepal , nur habe ich mich in solche Höhen noch nie getraut. Es braucht schon etwas Vorbereitung , denn man muss fit sein für so ein Vorhaben. Schon allein der Flug nach Lukla ist ein Abenteuer für sich . Man sieht Berge und Menschen , die mit wenigen Worten nicht zu beschreiben sind . Mit Suman war ich auf einen wunderschönen Weg unterwegs .Jedes mal, wenn er merkte, dass ich an meine Grenzen gekommen bin, wurde erst mal eine kleine Rast eingelegt, so dass ich mich immer wohl und gut aufgehoben gefühlt habe. So konnte ich den ganzen Weg geniessen. Vor allem war ich sehr fasziniert, wie die Menschen da oben leben und wie herzlich sie doch sind. Der Weg alleine, ist mit all seinen Aussichten und seiner Geschichte , diese Reise wert. Noch einmal vielen Dank für die liebe Beratung und einen Freund, der mir immer zur Seite gestanden hat.

Mount Everest View Trak – The perfect trak to the table of the world –

I describe our trip to the Mount Everest View point with one word: AMAZING
Everything was perfect. During our trek we had the whole time a comfortable feeling. We arrived in Kathmandu and our guide picked us up at the airport and joined us to our hotel. The hotel was beautiful. It is a small paradise inside Kathmandu. We had the feeling like home. (Hotel Horizon Kathmandu)
Our trip starts on the next day with a fly to Lukla. The first adventure during our trip. After the arrival in Lukla we start our trek with the target Mount Everest view hotel. The landscape during the whole time was amazing. We need three days to arrive the hotel. During this time we slept in Tea Houses and the organization was blameless. After the arriving we had the perfect view to the Mount Everest. The feeling was amazing during this moment. We had the perfect Landscape with all the great peaks. On the next day we started the trek back to Lukla and flight back to Kathmandu on the next morning.
Resume:
During the trip we had a comfortable feeling. Everything was perfect. Are you watching for a one week trip with the perfect landscape and the final view to the Mount Everest? Take this trek. But the trek was more than an amazing landscape and the Mount Everest. You can feel the peaceful atmosphere in the mountains of Nepal and you have a lot of contact to the native people. These people are really amazing.
Thank you to the Team of Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Thank you to Ramesh and to Bisang .It was beautiful.
