Trek booking opened for 2024/25 !  A notice for Lukla flight diversion through Manthali Airport from March, April and October and November 2024 !

I am considered a very nosy and detail oriented customer who would like to go through the minute details and ask for clarifications which can be bothersome. From day 1 of our association before the start of the trek, Tej Bahadur Gurungji, whom we now fondly call Guruji patiently handled our queries and showed his ability to stretch and provide solutions to every hypothetical problems we had in mind. We were a bunch of 14 trekkers, most of whom were above 40, and included my 11 y.o. daughter. Most of us had some experience of trekking but not as long as this one. We planned a 11 day trek through the following route: Sudame-Banthanti-Ghorepani-Tadapani-Chhomrong-Bamboo-Deurali-ABC-MBC-Bamboo-Jhinudanda-Matkyu. On almost all of the days we experienced rain and that made our walk a bit more interesting for sure. And here’s the expertise of Guruji that kept very handy. He and another guide Nausher kept us motivated, focused and lively. The food we ate was awesome and we kept confusing Gurungji with our tantrums and he kept us engaged almost as a doting parent. None of us had any physical issues throughout the trek and we all walked at our pace and enjoyed the bliss offered by this wonderful trek. Another thing that helped us was the wonderful support team, all of whom were excellent in their communication. In all the tea houses they doubled as the kitchen stuff and fed us like family members. Whenever someone got tired, they rushed to help them even with their day packs. And all of these without seeking help. As if the team could read our minds. Most of the porters in the team were as efficient as guides. Now that we have ended our trip, all the 9 support stuff including Tej Bahadur Gurung are now our family friends, and we are sure that next year we are going with the same team to EBC.

Very well done and thanks for the experience Mr Tej Bahadur Gurung and team.

Upper Mustang and Chitwan National Park

Dec 2022 Tej quickly planned our trip providing us with the best options. Me and my fiancee wanted to focus on photography and Tej reviewed and adjusted his packages accordingly. His long serving partner Amar Gurung proved to be a reliable and selfless guide willing to fulfill all of ur requests. Together with his we roamed the wild deserted lands of the Upper mustang and visited the Chitwan national park. We would definitely plan our next trip with Nepal alternative treks and Expeditions.

Going toward the edges of imagination and experience with Nepal Alternative Treks !

In Kathmandu I met up with a Nepal Alternative Treks guide, and together we embarked on a journey to the Solukhumbu region, to do the Three Passes Trek. A challenging route, the guide was very professional, gave confidence, and opened up many local inroads - geographical and cultural - that would have been off-limits had I done the trek on my own. Considering the challenges on the way, it was indeed very wise to have organised a guide, despite having vast experience in many mountain ranges. Crossing passes in the Himalayas at 5,500 meter is a different story, and acclimitisation (in particular when you carry your own backpack of 17 kilos/37 pounds) had to be well-planned and monitored on a daily basis. So we did, which resulted in the most spectacular mountain vistas I have ever witnessed. Several 8000ers (4 of the 6 highest mountains in the world...) in one panorama, this is arguably only possible in the Solukhumbu region of Nepal. The exquisite vastness of the mountain ranges is just overwhelming, and can only be experienced by being there. The guide was flexible, supportive, and very friendly, and became a mountain comnrade, perfecting a trip that I will never forget. 100 % recommended to organise trekking trips with this organisation !
