Where to even begin...in traveling around the world for the last 8 months, our two week-long treks (first Langtang Valley, and second Mohare Danda community trek to Poon Hill) were hands down the best experiences we have had! From our first email to Himal, to our final sad goodbye to our wonderful guide Tek Babu Gurung, the whole experience was perfect. Himal was always extremely quick to respond to emails and answer questions. When he knew how nervous I was about trekking (I have a fear of heights) he even waited until we were in Kathmandu and sent a car to pick us up from our hotel and bring us to his office so we could talk in person and address my concerns more easily! We never once felt pressured to book anything, and he was very understanding and easy to talk to. The prices were also very reasonable, and the company treats their guides and porters well, which was important to us when selecting a company. So we happily booked our first trek to the Langtang Valley. Our guide Tek, and porter Purna were absolutely wonderful. They were the most kind and positive people, and were the reason we had such a good time on the trek. We were supplied with endless snacks, fruit, masala tea, and delicious meals. Tek always made sure we stayed at the best and most comfortable tea house, that we were hiking at a pace we could manage, and took the time to enjoy it and take plenty of pictures. He also taught us so much about the area, the different mountains, and his culture. The whole trek went perfectly, and we had such fun relaxing and playing card games with them in the evenings, and enjoying the beautiful scenery during the day. In fact, we had such a wonderful time that we immediately booked a second trek with Tek to Mohare Danda and Poon Hill. Once again, everything from the private transport, to the tea houses, to the local porter we hired went perfectly. I can’t overstate what a wonderful guide Tek is. We felt so well taken care of, and enjoyed every minute of our two weeks with him. We were so sad to say goodbye to our friend, and will absolutely be coming back in the future for more treks with him. I can not recommend this company highly enough! Thank you for a wonderful introduction to Nepal! Kirsten Caudill from SEATTLE WASHINGTON.
13th Dec, 2018A perfect two treks in Nepal with Visit Himalaya Treks
Just back from a highly enjoyable 20-day trek around the Kanchenjunga circuit in Eastern Nepal, arranged by Visit Himalaya Treks who I'd heard were experienced specialists in that particular region.From the outset Himal was very good at responding to my e-mails quickly and comprehensively, resolving any concerns or questions that I had. Prices were competitive and transparent, with a full breakdown of costs being provided. A very professional outfit - when I arrived in Kathmandu everything was ready after VHT had made all the necessary arrangements with regards to transport and permits. Great service from my guide Parsharam, "the singing Guide", who knew the area very well and proved pleasant and well-humored company for the trek. The trek itself went very smoothly with no major issues encountered; we were very lucky with the weather and had amazing views of the peaks which are stunning in this area of the Himalayas. In closing, I can highly recommend both the Kanchenjunga Circuit trek and Visit Himalaya Treks in particular, who made for a well-organized and unforgettable trip. Jason Chow From UK

We are the couple from China and with great help from Visit Himalaya Treks, we did the Kanchenjunga trek in this December. It was fantastic during the whole 25-day trek since we really enjoyed the landscape, the Limbu villages. Both our guide and porter behaved professionally. We greatly appreciate Visit Himalaya Treks agency for organizing our impressive trek. LIAN DENG & LIU YIN from CHINA
11th Dec, 2018Excellent Kanchenjunga Trek
We’ve hiked before with Visit Himalaya Treks and decided to go for the Upper Mustang this time. The hike was just mind-blowing and so different from the others in Nepal. A lot more like a painted desert on the Tibetan Plateau. We really enjoyed the experience; three mid-twenties females and we had one guide and carried our own gear. Our guide Lok was fantastic and attentive at all times and knew the track well and consistently looked after our every whim. Eg popcorn and masala chai as soon as we got in each day. Will go again with this company. Himal is so warm, encouraging and supportive. We consider him a family friend. FRANKIE, MARY, JESSICA from Australia.

SUPERB experience EBC trek - 3 of us joined the EBC trek during the 2nd half of November 2018 and the guide assigned to us was Khilaraj Basnet (Raz). We are happy with all the arrangements during the trip such as in terms of transportation, accommodation and meals. We are especially satisfied with the efficient email response by the owner (Himal) during the booking stage and the flexibility in term of itinerary arrangement by the guide (Raz) who took care of us during the 13 days of trekking. For instance, one of our team members decided to fly back to Kathmandu and the team managed to arrange a helicopter flight for her by the next day. Besides, their detail-oriented services was once again proven when the team managed to locate the camera which my friend lost while traveling back to Kathmandu. In overall, we are extremely satisfied with their services and we will definitely come back again in the future! Bravo team Visit Himalaya Treks!

Tsum Valley Trek - On the 5th of November we could happily start our Trek to Tsum Valley with a great crew. From the beginning till the end we felt very much good taken care of and also the visit to the office to Himal and Raj was welcoming and familiar. We were blown away by the beauty of the nature and its friendliness of its people. Our crew was doing a stunning job with they're hearts and spirit. We definitely come back and will engage this agency. Thanks a lot Dhanyabad and see you around. Tselhamo and Judith from Switzerland
29th Nov, 2018Tsum Valley Trek review
A wonderful trek to Kanchenjunga - We just recently completed a long camping trek to both Kanchenjunga N & S base camps using the services of Visit Himalaya Treks. The net? A BIG thumbs-up for Visit Himalaya – they did an absolutely brilliant job! This was my 13th trek in Nepal, so I have a fair amount of experience with Nepal trekking agencies. Although I’ve never had a bad trek in Nepal, I certainly have had various “challenges” working with different trekking agencies (I’ve worked with quite a few). We had no such problems with Visit Himalaya -- it’s not an overstatement to say that they performed perfectly in every regard. As we were planning our custom itinerary, Himal (the owner of Visit Himalaya) was extremely knowledgeable, responsive and helpful. He is an honest, high-integrity individual with a tremendous amount of experience in the trekking industry (he started out as a porter and worked his way up). He shows real empathy for his staff, and ensures that they are well prepared and outfitted for the trek (something that was important to us). Every member of the staff on our trek was friendly and helpful. The team worked well together, and there were no conflicts of any kind. Our guide, Ishwar, was absolutely wonderful! He was super dedicated and amazingly organized, and ensured that all aspects of the trek ran smoothly. He was helpful but not oppressive, and a real pleasure to be with. He was, by far, the best guide that I’ve ever had on one of my treks! Visit Himalaya Treks provided us with a wonderful trek at a very fair price. I look forward to using their services again in the future. Mike Timo and Neal East from the USA.

Lower and Upper Dolpo Trek (juphal-Jomsom) - Good experience with the company, few specifics we rushed into and should have discussed more thoroughly. We ran into a few hiccups in the begging, as you do. However, our guide Pashu Ram got it all sorted and we continued with a great trip. The team was fantastic from our guide to our two porters! Look forward to trekking with them again! Gilles Herant, Joshua Raffaelle and Samantha Hellen from France.
