Thank you Tej, Ammar, Lanman and Kul,

This was my second trek with ”Nepal Alternative Treks & Expeditions”. My first trek was five years ago, with my wife; it was our retirement trip. Our guide was fantastic, thanks again Nauser. On this first visit to Nepal we did start with the Poon Hill trek, and after we went to the Langtang valley. Both were incredible and full of fantastic moments and souvenirs.

This year, with two friends, we decided to go for another trip in Nepal. We are all 68 years old. As on the previous trip, I asked Tej (the agency owner and main contact) to suggest a special trek for us :
– Part one of the trek : Mardi Himal Base Camp at 4 500 metres. This first section was basically on the ridge just East of the ABC trek (down below). Most of this trek was on open land. What can I say : magic, incredible ! Most other trekers were nepalese and it was during Diwali (light festival), a major holiday in the whole counrty. People were so nice and friendly.
– Part two of the trek : Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) at 4 130 metres. The mythical trek starts along the river and you go through a jungle forest of a very peacefull beauty. The more you go up, the more you get views of the mountains at the top. The last section, between Machhapuchhre B.C. and ABC is of an unbelievable beauty. And then, the magnificent circle of summits surrounding you at ABC…the ultimate view.
– Part three of the trek : going down, there is this feeling of fullfilness but, there is more because you do the Poon Hill trek, another classic.

What can I say, this trek, the people, we met, the views, the experience were all so easy because of our supporting team. Our guide Ammar was – always – chearfull and easy going. He was always there for us, like a friend.

Thanks again Tej for the organisation and advices, Ammar for being there for us, Lalman that I wich I could have known more, and Kul who did the Mardi Himal B.C. with me.

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 !
