By Blake ChristensenMy daughter and I did the 15 day Everest base camp trek. Very happy with our choice of Nepal Ascent Treks. Sittal was very responsive in answering all my questions before the trip and really took care of us during the trip. Our guide, Deepak, and porter, Bissnu, were awesome and very attentive. We felt we typically had the best rooms at the nicest teahouses. Kathmandu sightseeing was very personalized. The little extras provided by Nepal Ascent Treks – sim card, duffel bag, nice shirt (not cheap T-shirt), and massage were great. Would highly recommend Nepal Ascent Treks!
By Nayelli CarreraBy far one of the most incredible journeys of my life. The guides, porters, and everyone in between were phenomenal. Our group finished with a 100% success rate!! We couldn’t have done it without Nepal Ascent Treks. You truly feel like you’re in good hands with them. From flights to hotels to tea houses, NAT has it all covered.
By Lucia Chapa EspanozaWhat an amazing experience! Nepal Ascent Trek is the #1 tour operator in my mind. It was a turn-key trek. They picked us up from the airport and brought us back to our hotel on the back end. Everything in between was taken care of. From the transportation logistics to our tea house reservations, they did it all so you can concentrate on hiking, the views, and enjoying yourself. The porters, guides, the back-office staff, and ownership take your experience seriously! Don't mess around, pick the BEST! Raaj and Sittal were/are amazing and really care about you and your experience. I'd highly recommend you choose Nepal Ascent Treks for your next adventure!
By Dimitar MaksimovHuge thanks to Sittal and all the team of Nepal Ascent Treks having successfully climb in Mera Peak and Island peak with Amphulabtsa pass. Excellent well organized climb and whole trip were FANTASTIC!!! The landscapes were amazing with changing with lot of villages, forest, river and also snowy passes. The guide Kipa looked after us well and always made sure we had comfortable trip as much around it. They were experienced, knowledgeable and fun. Another good point is good value for money compare to other trekking agencies. Having a reasonable acclimatization programme so we climbed in both peaks without any health issue. But having weather was not always the best but our guide was well equiped to deal with snowy condition.
By Josephine KwanI hiked to Annapurna Base Camp and this was my first time going on a hike that is more than one day and of this high altitude. It was really a wonderful and amazing experience aside from the beautiful view on base camp. All our transportation to airport or bus station etc were well taken care of by Nepal Ascent Treks before and after our hiking which is great as we are going to Nepal for the first time and is not familiar to the places. The accommodation in Kathmandu & Pokhara City and teahouses along our trek were comfortable. And not forgetting our hiking guide, Raaj, and our porter were really awesome and helpful along our hiking journey. I am grateful to successfully reach ABC safely with them.
By Jona KwanNamaste 🙏. Annapurna Base Camp trek reconnect my soul with the beauty of nature; along the way, you will be able to immense yourself with numerous snow capped mountains, gorges, rivers, waterfalls, suspended bridges, flora and fauna and not forgetting the lovely and friendly people of Nepal. Their cultures and diversities are just awesome. Once you are at the Annapurna Base Camp, 4130m asl, you will witness the magnificent sunset and sunrise upon the majestic mountains range and their numerous peaks in the region. We are very happy with the excellent and professional services rendered by Nepal Accent Treks, especially Mr. Sittal, the person who arranged everything before the trip. Our guide Mr. Raaj Subedi, is the there for us from day 1 when we arrived at Kathmandu until we completed the trip. The trek to ABC which took us 7 days is made possible because we had a good guide. A big thank you. Not forgetting our porter, Mr Bharat Shrestha, a fun guy. Our belongings are in his good hands and our duffel bags were ready in our room at teahouses before we reached. Awesome! Thank you Nepal Ascent Trek.
By Gina PonciniWhat an amazing and memorable experience, trekking in Upper Mustang with Nepal Ascent Treks in July 2019. My overall trip was 18 days, from arrival at Kathmandu and departure, with 12 days dedicated to Upper Mustang. Pramod was my guide, and Sujan was my porter. They made sure that all was well and that I was comfortable. The trek was well organized, and in planning beforehand, Sittal would always reply to my emails quickly. It was a unique experience trekking through the breathtaking landscape from Jomsom to Lo Manthang and back, staying in Tibetan-style lodges and hotels, stopping for lunch in small villages and a monastery, passing Chortens and Mani Walls on the way, and visiting monasteries and caves. This was my second trek with Nepal Ascent Treks -- the first one was Annapurna area Poon Hill late March 2019, with Pramod as guide, and with Sittal planning the itinerary based on our communication. Again I was very happy and very satisfied with the overall experience. From my arrival at Kathmandu to my departure, the assistance and support was great: Pramod met me at the airport both times, and Sittal welcomed me at the hotel (Apsara Boutique Hotel), where I have had lovely stays. During the Upper Mustang trek, after our late afternoon arrivals on longish days we would have some Nepali snacks and look at the next day’s itinerary – I was always interest in maps. Pramod would make sure I had nice rooms in lodges and would make adjustments based on how we were proceeding, how I was getting used to the altitude, what my preferences were, and so on. For example, on the way to Lo Manthang on our way to Ghami, we took a lovely trail up to a pass after going through Gilling; we then descended on an old dirt road and continued to Ghami, because of my preference to go through Gilling and be away from the bigger road over the pass - so we did this beautiful route instead! On the way back from Lo Manthang, we took a different route, saw spectacular scenery, stopped at Gompa Monastery for lunch and a visit, and then went by Drakmar on the way to Ghami – amazing colors, caves, and background around Drakmar. On the way back we also visited the Chunngi caves after staying overnight in Sambochen, followed a canyon trail with fabulous views, and had lunch in Samar before continuing to Chunkksung (some people visit these caves on the way to Lo Manthang, but the way back worked better for me). Pramod made sure these special stops worked out for our overall trek, and Sujan was always helpful and thoughtful, too, and both pointed out sights of interest. A few more details and tips: -- The 2 days (3 nights) in Lo Manthang, in my view, we're well worth the extra amount and effort. One day we walked to the Caves area and visited them, and the second day was dedicated to exploring more of Lo Manthang and its monasteries. -- I used water purification tablets as suggested by Sittal and Pramod, an excellent solution. The tablets from a supermarket in Thamel were convenient and easy to use. For me, preparing a couple of Nalgene liter bottles (usually with kitchen tap water) in the evening worked well, in the morning transferring some water to camelbak and starting a new bottle depending on how long it would be to the lunch stop, where I could get more water. -- Although Upper Mustang is outside of the rain shadow, during the monsoon the flight between Jomsom and Pokhara or the road might be affected, due to the weather. After the trek, when our flight to Pokhara was canceled, Pramod arranged transportation to Pokhara through our hotel in Jomsom, with a great vehicle and excellent driver, so we got to Pokhara as planned and the next day could continue to Kathmandu. Next time I would try to have an extra day or 2 available to return to Kathmandu for my departing flight, and/or to stay an extra day in Pokhara. -- I had lovely stays at the hotels used by Nepal Ascent Treks with very helpful staff. The Apsara Boutique Hotel in Kathmandu and the Pokhara Batika Hotel were both lovely. The lodges along the way were picturesque and the people running them very hospitable. Thank you, Sittal, Pramod and Sujan, for such a memorable experience.
By Esthar MariaI went on a luxury trek to Mount Everest Base Camp with Nepal Ascent Treks and had a great time. My decision was made when Sittal responded immediately to my first email and thoroughly answered all of my questions. I booked the trip, and everything went smoothly and without incident. My guide met me at the airport and took excellent care of everything for the next two weeks. Everything was taken care of and planned, including shuttle service, flights to Lukla, lodges, and so on. Ram was a very nice, friendly, and respectful guide who was very knowledgeable about the area. He would even organize and order all of the lodge meals, bring apples for dessert, and so on. He took care of everything, allowing me to focus on and enjoy the essentials: the scenery, the trek, and the overall experience. I highly recommend this company, I have nothing bad to say, and believe me I am a very picky customer. I will be using them for all my future trekking visits to Nepal. From the moment they pick you up at the Kathmandu airport is non-stop hospitality at its best. This has been the best experience of my life!
By Frederik JaegherExcellent interaction with a highly professional company. Our trip to Everest Base Camp exceeded our wildest dreams. Highly informative and practical pre-trip advice, excellent guides and porters, high-quality lodges, and excellent route planning all impressed me. I had no idea what to expect from my first altitude trek, but everything went perfectly. This luxury trek and Nepal Ascent Treks Pvt. Ltd is both highly recommended. Nepal Ascent was extremely professional, offered excellent advice, and was always available to answer questions. It was also a pleasure to meet Sittal before and after our trip. I would use this company again and again!
By David VancherI'll begin with the lodges that were both luxurious and comfortable, with high-quality meals and friendly service. I had a good night's sleep there. The Sherpa people of the region, who are kind and considerate people who care about the well-being of tourists, also made our trek camp enjoyable. The scenery is breathtaking. Nepal Ascent Treks planned a 15-day trek that included nearly everything. Everything was well-organized, and everything came with friendly smiles and warm Nepali hospitality at a reasonable price. A special thank you to our fantastic tour guides. Nothing to complain about, and best wishes for the future!
