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

I would like to thank Nepal Alternative Treks & Expeditions (P.)Ltd. for making it possible for my friend and I, along with another group of friends, to have a most rewarding and profound life experience in Nepal, trekking the ABC Circuit in 9 days. Mr. Tej Gurung provided me with not only a tour package and domestic airline tickets, but also exceptional service himself, picking us up from the airport in Kathmandu and taking us to our hotel, then letting us use his driver and van to visit Boudhanath Temple before our flight to Pokhara in morning the next day. We met our guides and porters at the Pokhara airport the next day, and rode in a van to start trekking from Nayapul. Our schedule for our 9 day trek consisted of the following :

I would also like to thank my guide, Mr. Nimal Gurung, and my porters, Mr. Iman Gurung, and Mr. Sudip, for their great help and friendship, and without them my friend and I could not have made this journey.

Mr. Tej Gurung and his exceptional employees deserve more praise than can be written in this review, for they are attentative to the details of their clients’ wellbeing, with my friend and I, along with another group of friends trekking the same route, being able to stay in rooms booked ahead of us each day at the end of every day on our trek.

If you are a very healthy individual, able to run for hours or at least 10 km, are willing to face the elements of the weather, and wish to view the majesty of nature in Nepal, then I highly recommend this trekking company to help you achieve your goals.

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 !
