Jomsom Muktinath & Annapurna Base Camp - 23 Jan 2010.
Koen & Evy Salembier-Decat 02 Pax
Comments: After consulting the lonely planet on reliable trekking agencies, we contacted Adventure Treks Nepal. Beforehand we had read that in off-season there were limited options for trekking, but a meeting at the office made clear that this was not the case. So instead of doing a short trek of 8 days in helambu, we ended up trekking a total of 26 days! The first 15 days were out of Pokhara. We flew to Jomsom and trekked to Mutkinath, from there to Ghorepani for Poon Hill and afterwards hooking up with the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The guidebook says the Jomsom region is less attractive because of the roads that already give access to the area, but in off-season you really are alone on the trail. And the views are so amazing that we can recommend it to everyone! Poon Hill was the best sunrise spot we have ever been to and the Annapurna Base Camp provided the icing on the cake. We had snow on the 2 last days, and even though this made the trek harder, it also made it even more spectacular. With every concern about our safety, we were guided to the base camp and had the most inspiring views of the surrounding mountains.
And if we thought this would be the highlight of our trip, we were left astonished by the following trek to the Everest Region. We flew into Lukla and did a 11-day trek up to Gorakshep, where we climbed Kalapattar (5600m) for an amazing view of the Everest and made it to EBC on the same day! With the carefull assistance of our guide and porter for acclimatizing, we had no big problems with the altitude and had the experience of a lifetime!
Nepal was the 6th destination of our trip, and it was by far the most inspiring. So we feel more than comfortable in recommending Adventure Treks Nepal to everyone who wants the trek of a lifetime.
Special thanks to Gyanendra for being the reliable guide he is, and to Debraj and Djit for carrying our heavy burdens to their destinations with a smile. We would not have made it without your motivation and mountain knowledge.

With kind regards
Koen & Evy Salembier-Decat

Kern Bernard - from USA
Everest Base Camp - 01 Mar 2010.

Comments: "Major kudos to Adventure Treks Nepal for the outstanding service they provided on my EBC trek in March. From the moment of pick up until my drop off back at the airport two and a half weeks later, Gyan and his staff proved to be not only friendly and reliable, but also honest, knowledgeable, and fun. Communication with my guide on the way to EBC was no problem. And it was very assuring to trek with someone as social and safe as he was. The accommodations selected in Kathmandu and during the trek were comfortable and clean. My memories from this experience will be part of me for a very long time to come. I can only recommend Adventure Treks Nepal to anyone who wants an unforgettable and hassle-free time in Nepal."

Rowe - from Australia
Ghorepani Poonhill - 19 Mar 2010.

Comments: "Excellent company!! From our original email through my 3 weeks in Nepal, Adventure Treks Nepal was extremely professional, reliable, and friendly. They are a wonderful travel partner and I'd recommend them to anyone. I can't wait to go back!"

Boormann and Peter - from Canada
Chola Pass with Everest Base Camp/Gokyo) - 25 March 2010.

Boormann . 02 Pax (Canada) Comments: Namaste! We just want to express our gratitude for providing us with the experience of a lifetime. From the moment we arrived in Kathmandu, to the moment we departed, everything was simply perfect. We were particularly impressed by Gyan and his staff's excellent service and their patience and flexibility through the many last minute changes to our itinerary. No matter the request, they always delivered and often within very short notice.
We feel Gyanendra is one of the best guides anyone could have. His professional and caring manner, sense of humour, attention to every detail and his expertise, guidance and support on our high altitude trek to Everest Base Camp and Chola Pass went without a hitch. Your professionism in planning and booking our trips to Chitwan, Annapurna and Tibet were also exceptional, again everything went like clockwork and we were very happy. A special thanks to Sangum for his expertise and guidance on the Annapurna trek. All your staff are wonderful ambassadors for both your company and their country!
It was a real pleasure to meet the Adventure Treks Nepal team, to be guided by your experience and benefit from your wisdom. Our trip, quite simply, was perfect! It is without hesitation we recommend your company for anyone looking for the experience of a lifetime !

Jomsom Muktinath - 27 March 2010.

Comments: "We had the most amazing time ! The company was so professional from start to finish. The people are the kindest and most generous we have ever met. We didn't want to leave the country and wish we had booked a longer trip."

Donald Spring and friend - from Canada
Annapurna Base Camp - 31 March 2010.

Comments: My daughter and I just finished a trip to Nepal and trekked to Annapurna Base Camp. This was truly a life experience. Adventure Treks was the company we used to organize our adventure.I can't say enough about this company. From the time I landed in Kathmandu to the time I got back on the plane to fly home they were there to look after me.
I have traveled all over the world and have never had people as friendly and caring as the people at Adventure Treks. You know your in good hands when the owner of the company picks you up at the airport himself. Once on the trail our Guide Perm and ROMs were like family. They were the most courteous and friendly guides I have ever met and when I go back I will only go back if they lead us again into the magnificent country of Nepal

Clare and friend - from Ireland
Everest Gokyo Trekking 02 Apr 2010.
Clare X 02 Pax
Comments: We would just like to say a big thank you to Gyan, Mr Khim (our guide) and Jit (our porter) for making our Himalayan Adventure unforgettable. We only had a 2 week holiday but Mr Khim and Jit really did ensure that our we enjoyed our trip to the max. We felt they listened to our wishes and custom made our trip accordingly. Mr Khim was very well informed and we learnt so much about the local culture and geography. We had utmost confidence in them both allowing us to concentrate solely on Gods creation and having a good time. They were both very attentive when the unavoidable "delly belly" kicked in.

We will never forget our nights in Thare, Khunde and Toktok, really allowing us to have a taste of the real Nepal. We felt we developed a special relationship with these guys and knew that we were very lucky that the magnitude of this trip was possible in just 2 weeks. We would highly recommend using this company. For us it felt like a risk booking a holiday when all contact had been through email. However Gyan's very responsive nature to emails gave us confidence and the price he offered was very competitive. From the moment we were met at the airport to the moment we left the hotel at the end we felt that we were looked after as had been pre arranged and the whole experience was as agreed prior to payment.
Thank you again for all the laughs and the great memories.

Best Wishes Johnnie and Clare

Tina X 07 Pax (Sweden) Tina and group - from Sweden
Nepal and Tibet Tour - 06 Apr 2010.

Comments: Getting in contact with Gyan Karki and his team of excellent guides was the best thing that could happen to us. Being a group of 7 on a two-week-trip to Nepal and Tibet, we enjoyed the expertise of Adventure Treks Nepal. Due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland in April 2010 we had to wait for a suitable flight back to Scandinavia. In the meantime we had the opportunity of going on a 5-day, spontaneous trip to Pokhara, where we visited an English boarding school, unforgettable memories. During our stay in the Himalayas we experienced the fascinating indescribable nature as well as the major sights of the world heritage e.g. the Durbar Squares of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur and the marvellous Bodhnath. The inspiring thought that remains is that we have been on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Travelling in the secure company of Gyan Karki and his team made us feel enriched to say the least and now... we just want to go back to Nepal and Tibet ! Remember Lhatse ! THANK YOU !

Tibet Everest Base Camp. 28 Apr 2010.

Comments: My wife and I wanted to take the time to let you know about our trip to Nepal (Tibet) with your company. It was our first time trekking and we were not sure quite what to expect. Our expectations were not only met but exceeded at every level of our trip by your company. I will recommend your company to friends and family. During our time at the start and end of our trip in Kathmandu and Tibet (Lhasa-Lhasa) , All Guides, Porters & Drivers always there to look after us all the way. Nothing was too much trouble and all ensured that we were comfortable at all times.

Cameran - from Australia
Everest Base Camp Trekking. 23 Apr 2010.

Comments: All in all my stay in Nepal was one of the most rejuvinating and life changing experiences for me. Ramesh went above and beyond his call of duty for me and I can't thank him enough. He helped me learn so much about the culture and traditions of Nepal. So Thank you Adventure Treks Nepal for everything and helping me see Nepal and all of its beauty.

Gudrun and friend - from Austria
Sikkim Trekking. 22 Apr 2010.
Gudrun from Australia
Comments: wir haben nun bereits 3 Reisen unter deiner Organisation unternommen: Gokyo Trek, Annapurna Runde und nun eine Reise durch Sikkim mit 8-taegigem Trekking im Gebiet des Kangchendzonga. Jede der Reisen war für uns ein Erlebnis und die Organisation hat immer perfekt geklappt. Da wir immer allein mit deinen Guides, Koechen, Traegern, Horsemen, etc. unterwegs waren war es uns moeglich einzigartige Erlebnisse und Begegnungen in einem
fast "familiaeren" Charakter zu erleben. Sie waren gepraegt von gegenseitiger Wertschaetzung und daher fuer uns eine Bereicherung in Bezug auf Verstaendnis anderer Kulturkreise.
Die Reise durch das gruene Sikkim mit seinen tiefen Schluchten, hohen Bergen, den Doerfern hoch oben an den Berghaengen und freundlichen Leuten hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Besonders auch das Trekking durch eine abwechslungsreiche Landschaft, die Rhododendrenbluete, die sensationellen Ausblicke auf die Himalayakette und speziell auf den Kangchendzonga vom Goecha La aus. Herzlichen Dank nochmals an das komplette Team für die vielen netten Aufmerksamkeiten und die Bemuehungen.

Wir wünschen dir weiterhin viel Erfolg und werden bald wieder einmal mit

dir auf Reisen gehen.
Viele liebe Gruesse senden dir.

Comments: "The trip went very well. Guide was a good and our driver was also very good. There was some flexibility in the programme which was good...Weather was good; great views of Everest, Cho Oyu, Shishapangma and many other good sights. Good Experience !

Cassandra - from USA
Everest Tengboche Trekking. 10 May 2010.

Comments: My goal in looking for a trekking company when planning my trip to Nepal was:
1. To find someone who would go where I wanted to go.
2. To find someone who would go when I wanted go.
3. To be safe whilst trekking at high altitudes.
4. To avoid traveling in lockstep as part of a large group so as to be able to be reasonably flexible based on how I was feeling and what my interests were.
I found that Adventure Treks Nepal met all of my needs very, very well.

Comments: "We just wanted to let you know that we had a great trek with your company and especially enjoyed having Shambhu (Jit) Santa as a guide and Porter. He was the best guide we could have asked for, his intimate knowledge of the mountains and the culture was fantastic and he shared so many great stories with us that we will not soon forget. We could not have asked for anything better, the service was excellent and all the people we met were very friendly. We just wanted to thank you for makingour first trip to Nepal a very memorable one. We are definitely going to have to make plans to go back again."

In a word, my Nepal trekking experience was phenomenal. Ramesh in Trekking, Chitwan Ramkrishna were the ultimate hosts on the trail and Gyan outdid himself as your representative in the Kathmandu Valley. Your guides are truly well trained and very knowledgeable…they showed us what life in Nepal is all about.
I will definitely return to the magical Himalayan Country of Nepal and when we do we will be calling on the Adventure Treks Nepal's Team once again.

Cultural Tour with Annapurna Base Camp Trekking. Sep 22 2010.

Martin Moore & Family X 05 PaxComments: Subject: 'Adventure Trek Nepal' (Annapurna Sanctuary Trek)
A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

We have just arrived back in Australia after an adventure of a lifetime.
After contacting several of the Lonely Planet recommended local trekking agency's, 'Adventure Treks Nepal' was the first to respond, and remained easy and efficient to deal with throughout the many emails required to organise our trek especially to suit our family.
Our itinerary included all transfers, a 3-day tour of Kathmandu and the Valley, an overnight in Nagarkot, then on to Pokhara before setting off on a 9-day trek to the Annapurna Sanctuary.
Gyan Karki, the manager of the company was tremendous, his attention to detail was without fault, everything was as promised and superbly arranged and well executed. Our Guide Gyanendra was amazing; he was with us for both the tour and our trek. He spoke excellent English and became a friend to my family. My wife and three teenage boys loved him.
He was very professional & experienced, his knowledge of the history and manner of life in Nepal was exceptional, as well as very interesting.
During the trek he planned our day to suit us as a family unit, he booked teahouses in advance that were always the pick of the bunch for both food and accommodation. He told us the best and safest meals to choose and was very switched on with our acclimatisation, so that all 5 of us completed the trek with no sickness what so ever.
Our well-being and satisfaction was always Gyanendra's number one priority. We will without hesitation be recommending 'Adventure Treks Nepal' to our friends and family and anyone who intends to visit Nepal.
We are planning to do the Everest Base Camp trek in 2-3 Years time, and are certain we have found a great local operator to look after us again

Thank you Gyan and Gyanendra for an unforgettable family holiday, we still have very "big smiles".
Best Regards,
Martin, Amanda, Jake, Luke and Joel Moore

Daniel and friend - from China and USA
Everest Base Camp Trekking, 23 Sep 2010.

Comments:A very memorable and rewarding trip. Great views, beautiful hike. The guide was very patient and took lots of pictures for us. Travel arrangement and lodges were in general good and within expectation. Only thing that needs improvement was the last night of lodge in the mountains: since the hotel was over booked, we had to stay at a lesser lodge next door. Gyan was very friendly and attentive. All in all we had a good time and would recommend Adventure Treks Nepal!

Giusy and group - from Italy
Nepal & Tibet Everest Base Camp. 03 Oct 2010.

Comments: Sono oramai due anni che trascorriamo le nostre vacanze effettuando trekking in Tibet; abbiamo usufruito dei servizi dell'agenzia Adventure Treks Nepal (P). Ltd. con piena soddisfazione di tutti i partecipanti; non solo gli itinerari, i lodges, i portatori, sono stati di alto livello, ma soprattutto fra la nostra guida, Bhuwan (che tra l'altro sta continuando a studiare italiano e puo essere quindi molto utile a chi non padroneggia la lingua inglese) e l'organizzatore Gyan Karki, si e instaurato un rapporto direi di amicizia.
L'attenzione alle necessita di ogni singolo partecipante (il primo anno ha partecipato con il nostro piccolo gruppo un amico di 72 anni!!) e sempre stata ammirevole; l'organizzazione, dall'arrivo in aeroporto alla partenza, comprese le visite alla splendida vallata di Kathmandu, perfetta.
Il Nepal, per chi come noi ama le montagne, e un Paese meraviglioso e merita ben piu di un viaggio; la Adventure Treks Nepal (P). Ltd. ci fa desiderare ogni volta di ritornare a scoprire altri itinerari. E infatti nell'ottobre del 2005 abbiamo gia organizzato quello che e forse uno dei piu bei trek del Nepal, il grande circuito dell'Annapurna.
Siamo certi che anche questa volta sara tutto organizzato alla perfezione. Lavoro da tanti anni nel settore turistico e assicuro che raramente un corrispondente non si presta a critiche: ma in questo caso non posso che ringraziare tutti i componenti dell'Adventure Treks Nepal per la loro professionalita, che si trasforma nella completa soddisfazione dei partecipanti.
E' con molto piacere quindi che mando questa lettera e resto a disposizione di chiunque mi voglia contattare per condividere questa meravigliosa esperienza nepalese.
Grazie ancora a tutti e arrivederci al prossimo anno !

Comments: I have a few minutes so want to thank you again for being our guide. We've spoken many people about our trip and have told them all we'd highly recommend Adventure Treks Nepal. Please give our contact information to people who request references. We'd absolutely give glowing reviews on the quality of service we received from you and your team. My daughter is convinced she'll do the trek again in 10 years with you !
From our perspective the only thing that would have enhanced the trip was nicer hotels in Pokhara & Kathmandu. The Egan family would have paid more for nicer accommodations although we realize there aren't a ton of choices. Especially upon returning when all you want is a long hot shower in a clean hotel!
Otherwise, our memories are fabulous and it is because you created a wonderful and safe tour for our family.

Comments: Everyone at Adventure Treks Nepal was very helpful in putting together the trip and my guide was very accommodating. The entire trip was a refreshing break from the ordinary, in which it seemed anything shy of the weather could be fixed at the drop of the hat. The scenery was unlike anything we have ever seen and we look forward to my next trip in Nepal.

Eric X 02 Pax. (USA + TAIWAN)
Comments: My friend and I went on the Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo/Chola pass.
I would like you to know that throughout the entire trip our guide and porters were simply wonderful. Our guide Gyanendra in particular was very kind, considerate, and consistently helpful.
Trekking through the Himalayas - Nepal countryside itself was truly an experience of a lifetime and the greatest honor for me was the friendship I grew to have with Him.
I know that it's very unlikely that he and I will ever meet again however, it is my greatest hope that I will always remember and carry a little of his spirit with me where ever life takes me in the future. Of course Adventure Treks Nepal can expect only the highest praise and strong support from all of us
Thank for your help and thanks again for a truly great trekking experience.

Cultural Tour, Kathmandu & Nagarkot. 26 Oct 2010.

Comments: We finally made it to Nepal after, it seems, a lifetime of dreaming about travelling in Nepal. Many months before flying to Nepal, our online conversations to/from Gyan Karki began. We were immediately impressed with the fact that Gyan always answered our emails swiftly with courtesy and professionalism that created for us a strong sense of confidence in his services prior to arriving in Nepal. We just knew before we even met Gyan that we were going to like him, and we were right. He managed to tailor our itinerary to reflect our interests and desires, and still quote a trip price that was extremely reasonable for his personal services. Gyan was always open to our wishes, and did a remarkable job at addressing our needs throughout the trip. Bhuwan, our cultural Tour Guide, was a great addition to our "Gyan" package. He had a constant smile on his face, and was such a Knowlagable person. If you decide to hire Gyan's services, you will be receiving the very best services offered by any independent Nepalese trekking company. Please accept our highest recommendation for Adventure Treks Nepal.

Comments: My husband and myself booked the Sanctuary Trek with Adventure Treks Nepal in Oct 2010. Gyan Karki was wonderful in taking care of all our pre-trip questions and organization of the trip from start to finish. We were made to feel very welcome in Nepal and found all the guides (Dipek) and our porter (Khil) really special people. Most importantly, all arrangements were as discussed. All our pick-ups and tours were on time and as described. It was great having arranged with a small company with "big" heart! We would not hesitate to recommend Adventure Treks Nepal, and look forward to travelling in the future with them! A beautiful country with beautiful people!

Comments:"Our trekking experience with Adventure Treks Nepal has been excellent. We benefited from the attention of a warm, detail-oriented, and very professional team, from the owner (Gyan), to the porter and the guide (Khim). Not only did they all deliver on their promises, but they also all went beyond to help us through difficult weather conditions on our way back to Kathmandu. We highly recommend Gyan's company to anyone wishing for a genuine adventure in Nepal !

Everest Base Camp Trekking, 03 Nov 2010.

Comments: "The Everest Base Camp trip lives up to its fame and reputation. Every new day of the trek brings a completely new view and a change in scenic beauty. I consider myself lucky to have found Adventure Treks Nepal's website while making our plans for the trip. One word that best describes the services provided by Gyan and his team is 'Personal'. Apart from taking personal care about drafting out my itinerary, Gyan was there to give personal attention to the constant changes we were making while on the trip. Although we were just two person on our trek, we never felt lonely thanks to Adventure Treks Nepal's guide Ramesh, whose hospitality and service leaves me humbled and my ever smiling porter. Gyan - we had a wonderful and memorable trek and I will be getting in touch with you again for the Annapurna trek next year. Thank you and Namaste".

Jomsom Muktinath. 05 Nov 2010.

Comments: If you are thinking of traveling to Nepal, then you need look no further than Adventure Treks Nepal to take care of your trip.
We found Adventure Treks Nepal via an internet search and was immediately impressed by how carefully he responded to emails quickly and with detailed information. Gyan gave us contact details for his previous clients and I followed up on these, all spoke glowingly of Adventure Treks Nepal and now we wouldn't hesitate to do the same.
We exchanged emails over a period of few months or so before the trip, during which time Gyan answered all our many questions and suggested a variety of itineraries to suit us. We eventually ended up with 5 day trek for of us.
Adventure Treks Nepal's quotation was much more competitive than the bigger western based companies, and I feel that we had far superior service, secured excellent rooms for us everywhere we stayed, knew exactly how to pace the trek for us, and clearly has the friendship and respect of many of the other guides, porters, lodge owners that we met en route.
So we have no hesitation to Recommand Adventure Treks Nepal for anyone.

Raftin in Rishikesh, Bhutan, Nepal & Tibet Tour. 11 Nov 2010.
John & Mary X 02 Pax

Comments: My husband and I were planning a fall trip to include the countries of India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. For past trips, we had always worked out our own itinerary but this time we had to have a tour company as required by Bhutan and Tibet. We were fortunate to receive a good reference regarding Adventure Treks Nepal from a very satisfied trekking client in Canada.
Being an older couple, we were not interested in serious trekking but wanted hiking mixed with cultural activities. With input from us, Gyan put together a 24 day package covering the 3 countries of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet, including the sites we wished to visit, plus an overnight white water rafting experience (Rishikesh) in India. He also arranged all of the necessary travel documents, accommodation, guides and drivers. He provided room for flexibility and arranged changes once we were on the trip. We felt well taken care of and pleased with the choices and itinerary in each country.
Gyan is a very reliable, honest and responsible tour operator, concerned for his clients and provides lots of personal attention. We recommend Adventure Treks Nepal to anyone wanting to experience trekking and cultural activities within Nepal and elsewhere.

He made sure that we paced ourselves well and took us to places that served good food, and clean accommodation. I would definitely recommend him and the company to anyone that was thinking of trekking in Nepal.

Everest Base Camp Trekking with chola Pass, 22 Nov 2010.

Comments: "One of the toughest things about booking online is knowing whether what you see on the website is actually going to exist when you get there. Parting with your money can therefore be nerve-racking, but I can assure you that this company is a well-established one, run by excellent staff. My girlfriend and I went on a trek trek in the Everest region of Nepal and were pleasantly surprised to have new equipment, enough food to feed the five thousand, good-humoured porters who were not going to abandon us when the weather got nasty, and a guide who clearly knew the area with which he was dealing. Gyan, the boss in Kathmandu, is instrumental to this service and we found ourserves relying on his know-how even after our trek as he's readily available on email and Messenger! He will always give you a straight answer too, which I believe is best. Anyway, if you want to get in touch with me with any questions, feel free.

Namaste !

Comments: We are tried to book our trip through the internet, we have found Adventure Treks Nepal on the website, we sent many e-mails to its Managing Director Gyan Karki and we were very interested with his helps. So we booked nearly one year in advance sending off our deposit. We do not regret a minute of it everything Gyan said he would do he did it very professionally and pleasantly. We did 15 days trip Included Trekking, Wildlife safari & Culture Tours. So we can recomend this firm without hesitation.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking with Bhutan Tour. 13 Dec 2010.
Tammy X 02 Pax. Canada)
Comments: We just returned from three weeks of travel in Nepal and Bhutan. This was our first time traveling to either of these countries and after having limited success with our local adventure travel agent, we decided to see if we could find a tour/trekking company in Nepal to assist us with our travel plans.
We have relied on referrals and testimonials from fellow travellers in the past and have rarely been disappointed. So, after reading about the experiences of those who had used Adventure Treks Nepal (based in Kathmandu), we decided to make contact with them...and let's just say, from the very first 'prompt' email response from Mr. Gyan Karki, we knew we were on the right track.
Not only did they help us plan our travel and trekking within Nepal, but they also coordinated our travel plans with a Bhutanese tour operator to complete our trip. It was so easy. Emails were quickly returned, changes we requested to itineraries were made without question, and suggestions were offered to help make our trip more enjoyable.
They arranged everything...from the airport transfers, coordination of trekking permits, TIMS cards, domestic flights, hotels in Kathmandu, Pokhara, sight-seeing, and as mentioned above, they coordinated our travel plans onward to Bhutan.
Our guide for trekking and local sight-seeing in Nepal was Gyanendra. If you have the chance to use Adventure Treks Nepal...ask for him as your guide. He was fantastic - very personable, provided a wealth of information (cultural, historical, etc), gave a thorough briefing each evening to explain the next day's trekking in detail, and was always ready to share a laugh with us...and there was a lot of laughing along the way.
Ramesh was our porter, but in actual fact, he too is a guide with Adventure Treks Nepal and opted to go with us on this particular trek as a porter. We're glad he did. What a great team!
For reference, we trekked the Annapurna Sanctuary route to Annapurna Base Camp (incl Poon Hill) and if this is even a small taste of what trekking in Nepal is all about, I am sure we'll be back someday. Beautiful!

Thanks to Adventure Treks Nepal for making this a trip to remember.
