    Fantastic trip to the highlights of the Himalayas

    We enjoyed a fantastic trip to Sagamartha thanks to our colourful, humorous and friendly guide Narayan and our hardworking, polite porter Shayam. Narayan guided us through the exciting 3-passes trek. Each part of the trek was perfect. All the places that we stayed in were clean and provided good value for money eating options, especially when you consider the remote areas we stayed in. Our health and safety were always a concern of Narayan and we never felt in any danger of developing altitude sickness. There are so many trekking companies in Kathmandu, so it is not easy to choose between them. However, based on this experience I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Narayan and Shayam to accompany you on a trek during your time in Nepal. Two great guys who provided an absolute top notch experience and service.

    Everest High Pass Trek....the experience of a lifetime

    I recently completed the Everest High Pass Trek with Nepal Trekking Planners and it could not have been a more perfect experience. I highly recommend this company and they catered to every need. First of the owner Dipak met me at the airport and brought me to my hotel. He even walked me up to the room to make sure it was okay. He was there the next day to introduce me to my guide for the Kathmandu city tour and then walked me to the welcome dinner. He was also there to take me to the airport, and meet me on the way back after finishing the trek. He explained that his priority is the service to his clients rather than having large numbers, and this was evident. He helped me book tickets to my next destination, and even took me to the right trekking stores in Kathmandu to make sure I had everything I needed. Truly an incredible guy. As far as the trek I was a bit hesitant at first to do it alone (had a great guide, Khila and amazing porter Hare). For me it was the best decision that ever happened because I got to go my pace which ended up being quite quick. I watched as other large companies treated their groups almost like cattle and people had to wait in the cold for 30-45 minutes for everyone to catch up. The great thing about Trekking Planners is they cater the trek to any group size and are very flexible. During the trek I fell in love with Ama Dablam mountain, and my guide Khila allowed us to change the schedule so we could go to basecamp. Also along the way we were able to move around days and for me combine some things to make the days a bit longer since I completed things so quickly. The ability of a company to cater to their clients and be so flexible is SO IMPORTANT on a trek. Everyone has a different trekking style and Trekking Planners teaches their guides to adjust the trek to 100% satisfy the clients. I had several people along the way say they wish they had known about Trekking Planners and I think there is no better sign than that. Accommodation and meals were always provided for in a timely fashion on the trek and it worked seamlessly. The actual high pass trek is so incredible it is hard to describe without experiencing it yourself. The high passes can be challenging, but more rewarding for me than Everest Base Camp or any other part. The views are phenomenal for anyone up for a bit of adventure this is the trek for you. It allows you to get away from the crowds for a while, and to feel the beauty of the Himalayas. Visited March 2017

    Fantastic three passes trek

    We arrived in Kathmandu after having previously emailed Trekking planners to get an idea of itinerary and cost. The response was fast and very detailed so we went and visited Deepak once we were in Nepal. His organization was amazing and he booked us in and sorted everything within one day. The price was very reasonable and included a guide, porter, all food, tea, accommodation, transfers, sleeping bags, poles and a duffel bag. We could call trekking planners at anytime and they were so reliable and helpful, even at the airport Deepak has organized someone who worked there to help us check in and get to the gate. Along the trek we were provided with fruit and Deepak had pre purchased and sent with us, the accommodation was always very good and we were even given hot towels after a day of walking! The guide that Deepak organized for us was very helpful, knowledgeable and spoke fantastic English. He got us through the three passes very well and gave us good tips about taking Diamox, walking slowly, covering our heats to prevent headaches and drinking lots of water. He never rushed us and always went at our pace. Along the way our guide Puri Sherpa also helped other travelers climb over boulders and showed them the way, he even let a solo trekker join us for two days (which we were ok with) and helped him with booking accommodation and get across a pass. He organized crampons for us and always helped us down tricky parts of the trek. He was also very knowledgeable about the Himalayan range and could tell us all of the mountain names, height and if they have been summited. Trekking planners also let us store all of our luggage in Kathmandu, helped us with accommodation bookings and booked all of our busses across Nepal. Deepak even got up at 5am to meet us and walk us to the bus station! Thank you so much trekking planners, you make our experience so comfortable, easy and wonderful. Would highly recommend !

    We had a great trek with Trekking Planner and with our guide Suman. From the moment we got picked up by our guide from the airport to the moment we left Nepal (3 weeks after we finished our trek) we felt like we had constant support from trekking planner. Dipak (team leader) was very helpful and made the whole process very smooth and easy through his (and his teams) hard work. Obviously a Nepalese run guiding company is going to be different from a western guiding company but for a locally run operation is was fantastic! We ended up doing a modified version of the three passes loop (making it a few days shorter and missing the first pass because of illness) which they accommodated well including changing flights last minute. Our guide Suman did a very good job and we would recommend him. He spoke great English and was very kind and helped us easily get through every potential obstacle that came up. My partner has food allergies and he would communicate those with the kitchen to modified dishes to ensure she was provided with food she could safely eat. Suman, though being young, was very confident and capable and we felt very safe in his hands. He knew the trail and surrounding area very well (including every peak and elevation) and what he was talking about! We decided to do this trek guided because it was our first time visiting and trekking in Nepal and we were unsure what to expect including safety and logistics of trekking in Nepal. It provided us with the confidence to travel in Nepal and complete other treks unguided ( which is more our preferred style of travel) We look back fondly on our trip with Trekking Planner and would recommend them to anyone who wants a stress free trekking holiday! Thank you to the whole Trekking Planner team :)
