I did the Alternative (5 day) Ruby Valley hike to Chalish Gaun. As a gem enthusiast, Tej helped me arrange special day trips to a quartz mining area to explore traditional gem collecting methods in the area. Tej did so much to make this trip truly special and unique. I also did another other day hike around the beautiful valley to reach the hot springs. My guide Raju was so nice and hilarious. It was such an adventure!

The village is beautiful with very welcoming people. It really felt like I got an authentic experience in the village and I was so sad to leave. The landscape truly is beautiful with snowy mountain peaks to one side, a babbling river below, and deep mountainous valleys with stunning farming geography all around.

The hike is listed as Easy–which I think is meant for Nepalis! I found this Easy grade hike quite challenging, and I have done Garabaldi, Black Tusk, and Trolltunga with ease. I found the heat quite hard on this hike–so be prepared! Keep your luggage to a minimum. I went in May and did not require the sleeping bag I towed around.

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 !
