I have been visiting Nepal in the past 25 years and since 1999 Himal has been my guide and tutor for the Himalayas. We have made over 15 treks and travels together. Wether on my own or with a group of hikers: these treks and travels were in the hands of the excellent, caring and responsible organisation of Himal. His professional and organizational skills make a trek in Nepal a real experience of the Himalaya: Himal has taught me to understand more of the people and culture in Nepal; he is also an excellent intermediary who surprises time and again in his ability to connect with his clients and local communities.

I’ve done two trips with Himal. The first trip was the Everest Base Camp trek during March, 2004. The second trip was in March, 2009 when we attempted the Annapurna circuit. Both were excellent trips. There’s no better way to travel than with Himal. His organization skills and attention to detail, not to mention the first class service is second to none. In Nepal, this is critical, since you don’t want to waste precious vacation time. Himal is always in complete control. You don’t have to even think about logistics. After Himal meets you at the airport, the hard part is done. You can relax; you’re in good hands with Himal. I’m already thinking about my next trip with Himal &Visit Himalaya Treks.

Last February we went on a 12 day long trekking with Himal to the Annapurna Base Camp. It was very nice! Every morning we felt like home because they took good care of us. Let us explain one thing: we are from the Netherlands and this country is below sea level! Trekking therefore is sometimes quite a challenge! Luckely Himal and his crew were always possitive about our results of the day and they always helped us through the tough parts. We would like to recommend Himal to all of you for all your trekkings and other expeditions in Nepal. Himal is a very kind and truthworthy man that will never abondon you in the wilderness. Greetings from Femke, Jolien and Marije from the Netherlands.

I have been trekking with Himal on November 2008, to the base camp (Everest). I had a wonderful time, first of all because the trek and the views are totally amazing but also because Himal have done a wonderful job. He is a very professional guide, dynamic, always smiling and trying to make the best for you. Himal knows very well what he is doing and what he is talking about. You can trust him without any Hesitation.

Dear "thinking about teaming up with Visit Himalaya Treks traveler".Since 1998 I have visited beautiful & exiting Nepal several times,always leaving with a strong desire to return as soon as I find a new chance! Nepal touched my heart completely, nature/climate, people, culture.In 2003 I learnt to know Himal Tamang, the company's MD. Besides cultural visits around Kathmandu, Chitwan Nat. Park in the south, also a wonderful group trekking experience to the area of Helambu, some hours by bus north of Kathmandu. Since then we always kept in contact for my next NEPAL EXPERIENCE! I'll tell you why. This Helambu trekking was so well organized and pleasant, supporting/guiding us to finally pass 4600m' Laurabina Pass. We could enjoy the trekking, scenery and the social aspects to the most thanks to our Nepali supporting team! Himal's professional, responsible, relaxed but serious and caring attitude towards all of us + his team of Sherpa's and porters was exactly what is important on a trekking in my view. Responding well to any small or major trouble on the way, being sensitive towards the group's interest and individual wishes. Not to mention his patience for the passionate birds & flower, photography lovers amongst us, this slowed the team down a bit...haha. In 2005 I returned on my own and was so excited to visit Khumbu Valley, but weather conditions forced a change of plan. Pure flexibility on both sides brought us the next day to Annapurna Base Camp area for a 10 days trekking. With our mini-expedition of 3p I enjoyed a fantastic experience again. A big plus is also his (local) knowledge after so many years of working in and outside Nepal. Plus the bridge that can be built by your leader, guides, and porters with the locals you meet on the way. So, my opinion: BOTH THUMBS UP FOR HIMAL AND HIS TEAM! 100% trustworthy for everyone!
