During 13 trips to Nepal, my husband and I mostly did teahouse trekking without guides and porters, due to some bad experiences in the past. All that changed in 2012 when we asked Himal at visithimalayastrek.com to organise our 21 day teahouse trek in the Kachenjunga region. We wanted a guide who came from that area and spoke Tibetan. Himal himself proved to be calm, capable and exceptionally good at getting us into and out of remote places with a minimum of fuss. Likewise, our guide Mingma Bhote and porter Lakpa Bhote couldn’t have been more friendly, helpful, useful and able to deal with the unexpected. We enjoyed our Kachenjunga trek so much that we kept the same happy team for another 20 days. This time we did Manaslu and Tsum valley as a teahouse trek. Again, Mingma’s ability to speak Tibetan - and cook delicious food when necessary - was exceptionally useful. Both Mingma and Lakpa were only too pleased to help us learn some Nepali and Tibetan which added another dimension to our trip. I cannot recommend this company highly enough

Dear Himal and Team, Hope you are doing well. Thanks for great trekking arrangement.Excellent. Very professional organisation lead by Himal and a great guide in Hari. The organisation was awesome, couldn't have asked for more, and for a fraction of the price of using a UK/European based company. Hari (our guide) was also top class and reacted to situations as they occured (plane crashes, bad weather, altitude sickness). He looked after us a lot when in the mountains. I would recommmend Visit Himalaya Treks, Himal and Hari to anyone considering a trek in the Everest region. I don't have any experience of trekking with this company in other regions but i'm sure the service would be equally first class. Thanks very much to Hari and Himal for a awesome few weeks in Nepal.

My husband and I just returned from a month stay in Nepal, taking the 17-day trek to Everest Base Camp and an 8-day drive-in and fly out tour of Tibet. We have nothing but high praise for Himal and his staff for their attention to detail in arranging everything, providing wonderful guides to ensure we were successful in all our ventures, keeping us well informed, and the personal touch by having us to his home for a celebration dinner. Even with flight delays from Lukla they came through by using their clout to get us on an earlier flight or for sure we would have been stuck in Lukla for another day. His company delivered on everything as advertised and exceeded all our expectations. Pasang, our trekking guide, did a wonderful job of educating us regarding the land, the people, and the majestic mountains. Because of the excellent service Visit Himalaya Treks provided us we would recommend this comany to anyone considering a visit to Nepal. Again many thanks to Himal, Pasang, and the staff of Visit Himalaya Treks. Feel free to contact us for further discussion.

Dear Himal and Team
Greeting from Switzerland,
A big "thank you" for the great trekking experience! All the way and time we felt really comfortable, from the first second until the end. And this belongs to the hearty care taking group. We had so much fun and a lot of laughs with you guys! Even in hard times and the bad case situation (like an evacuation handled without losing the mind but with calmness and clear actions) everything was very well organized: it couldn\'t have been any better in Switzerland!
Knowledge, experience, organization and strength of purpose as well as precision, meet together with flexibility, spontaneity, humor and empathy as well as compassion, this is what I call a great performance! This is trekking with VISIT HIMALAYA TREKS Pvt.Ltd (www.high-himalaya.com)
All this mixed with respect, tolerance, an open mind and a deep cordiality is a performance on the highest level and what made this trip absolutely unique and unforgettable for us.
7th in the winter Olympics 2006 in Torino,
3rd in world cup overall 2006/07.

Just back from the Langtang-Gosainkund-Helambu trek, organized by Visit Himalaya Treks. It was fantastic! We were very happy with guide Man Kumar and porter Kumar. Compliments for Himal and his team. They were accurate, reliable and communicative. By inviting us in his home, he made the attention very personal. Himal even brought us to the airport, five days after finishing the trek. Excellent service.
We heartily recommend Visit Himalaya Treks!

Thanks for the well organized trek to Kala Patthar and Everest Base Camp.
For me it was a 'once in a lifetime' experience which I'll never forget.
The way you and your team operate is fantastic. You're very professional. Your knowledge of the treks, your friendly approach towards your clients, it makes trekking with your company great fun. Pasang was a very good guide who didn't only know his way in the mountains, during the many hours we walked together, he told me a lot about your culture and the Nepali traditions as well.
I wish you and your team good luck and maybe, hopefully, we'll meet again!

- Hi Himal,
I really enjoyed my stay in Nepal. The nature is unbelievable beautiful. The trek absolutely is doable in those 12 days Jomsom Muktinath trek.
Rajan is a very nice guy. He's doing his job very well, always takes care of me. Kabi is amazing carrying my luggage. I still don't know how he can do this. If he could speak a little better English then I'm sure he's a fun guy to have around. I can totally recommend Visit Himalaya Treks.
I wish you, your family, Rajan and Kabi and their families a great time and all the best wishes!

We have just returned from 23 days (October 01-2011 to October 23-2011) on trek with Himal and his team, taking in both Dhaulagiri and Annapurna base camps. This was our third trek with Himal and it was every bit as special as the others. His organization, attention to detail and real care for his clients and the porters are excellent. It is an indication of our complete satisfaction with Visit Himalaya Treks that we are already discussing with Himal another trek for next October.
