From the first email to the last hug, I cannot recommend Tej and his team at Nepal Alternative Treks and Expeditions enough! I’ve just returned from a Mera Peak attempt and can safely say – after 15 years of travelling back and forth to Nepal, that this trip has taken the proverbial cake. Nothing was a bother for Tej – a brain filled with detail and attention and an abundance of knowledge about his team, the regions and how best to cater the trip for his clients. Despite the weather having other plans for us – the climb/trek was a complete success, not just on a personal level, but thanks to planning, fantastic support from my trekking guide Ugal and climbing guide Gyalje, the porters, chefs and each village we stopped at. We were some of the first to open the trails for the season, so it was super quite and peaceful during our walks. We went up in sunshine and blue skies and came down in some of the most incredible snow i’ve seen in a long time. Not once did I think my safety was a concern – despite falling off Mera La at 5500m and maybe even into a cheeky crevasse at one point. The food on trail was delicious and hygenic. The tea houses were comfy and warm and so very welcoming. I’ve never had the comfort of a heated blanket at 5000m in all my travels to Nepal – but Refuge Mera at Khare has you covered – some of the best, well-rested nights of my life, which is an achievement at altitude. A last minute decision by me meant plans down the line needed changing – which was a non-issue and done without any hassles, and everyone involved was supportive and excited to participate. I ended up travelling as a solo female when our second member had to cal last minute – and i was treated with such respect and dignity, as I have been during all my travel to Nepal. Again, Tej and his team of experts were fantastic and I highly recommend if you’re planning a trip to Nepal to get in touch and see what they have to offer.

Kathmandu-Pokhra-Mustang Tour

"We went for a family trip with Nepal Alternative Treks and Expeditions to Kathmandu-Pokhra-Muktinath , and the experience has been fabulous. Organized by Mr. Tej Bahadur Gurung and Guided by Amar, below are some of the highlights and high points of this trip : 1. Kathmandu : The hotel and food at Kathmandu Garden Green was amazing. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The arrangements made by Tej ji were above standard. Vehicle provided for the tour and sight seeing were also in excellent condition. Entire Kathmandu sight seeing was guided and well explained by Tej Ji's team. 2. Pokhra : We had our accommodation at Lake mahal pokhra which is just a stones throw from phewa lake and had beautiful views from hotel. The sight seeing and food at pokhra were also very well organized. 3. Mustang and Muktinath : We travelled to mustang and muktinath on a jeep arranged by Tej Ji, and this was one of the most exciting and exhausting road journey of the entire trip. Because of the expertise of our driver we were able to reach muktinath at proper time and also had a very fun filled road journey. The arrangements at muktinath and marpha were also par standard and the entire stay at mustang was very well organized. We are very pleased with our experience with N.A.T.E and Tej Ji and will choose them again for our future vacations at Nepal. We highly recommend N.A.T.E to any travelers going for a trek expedition to Nepal, as they are the best in this industry. Wishing all the best to the entire team."

Thanks Tej for his experience and help that I have successfully crossed 2 Pass and take helicopter. I will not hesitate to engage him again for my future trip in Nepal. And also a great thanks to his team members as well. Absolutely loved this trip and highly recommend Ace the Himalaya. Definitely recommend completing the Kala Patthar trek too.
