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

Our family of 2 adults, 2 kids, (11 and 13yrs) wanted to do the Langtang Trek independently as we wanted to acclimatize slowly, and go at our own pace allowing flexibility for kids getting sick and needing rest days etc. We also thought a guide would be good though, and even though kids are experienced hikers, we also thought a porter to take a couple of kilos each off us would be good for when we were at higher altirtude. Our Kathmandu hotel (Utse) manager put us in touch with Tej, we met with him and told him what we wanted, and he organized a guide and porter that were both friendly, professional, and great with the kids, and were very flexible allowing us to decide on villages to stay at and staying however many nights we wanted etc. Most days Samir the porter lead our trek, but at our pace, stopping whenever we needed to, and Ram our guide tailed patiently helping me (the mum!) whenever I needed a hand. They played Yoyo, rubik cube, and cards with the kids every evening, had snowball fights with them, taught them some Nepali, but also gave us family space too. They organized great guest houses for us in every village, one long day when we had heard on the trail that the village we were heading to was busy, our porter went ahead to secure rooms for us so we didn’t have to stay in tents 🙂 Overall we were very satisfied with the service from Tej, our guide and porter, and could confidently recommend them to a family with similar needs 🙂

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 !
