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

I did a volunteering project in Nepal and got to know Tej Bahadur Gurung during an event with TAAN. He is the managing director of Nepal Alternative Treks and already helped other volunteers in the program to book their trekking.
When my girlfriend arrived in Kathmandu, we met him to plan our trip to the Upper Mustang area. Before we started, we met our guide Nauser in Kathmandu and had a very good first impression of him. He was a young and very polite man. We figured, we would have a good trek with him.
We started from Pokhara, trekked four days up on our own to Kagbeni and met our guide there. Nauser’s flight got cancelled and he had to travel all the way up to Kagbeni in less than 24 hours to meet us on time. Poor guy came completely wet in the morning, having spent the night in a bus. However, he was fully motivated and ready to start our adventure.

The trek to Lo Manthang was demanding and at times not that easy, but we got rewarded by an astonishing scenery. For Nauser however, we had the feeling it was more like a promenade. He was in a very good shape and almost never looked exhausted. Nauser, our great guide, always took care of us. We had several good conversations and learned a lot about the culture, religion and the mountains. He always listened to our concerns and tried to find us the best lodge to stay for the night. One time, we got in a lodge, where we were supposed to sleep in a dinning room with no real door, so we told him that we were not really happy with the accommodation. Without hesitation he walked out with us and looked for a better place.

Before flying back to Switzerland, Nauser invited us in Kathmandu to eat at his place, where he lives with his wife and his child. They were so hospitable. I was impressed and left with a wonderful feeling about the people in Nepal.

We can highly recommend Nauser for a Trekking trip. He knows many things, talks proper English, takes good care of you and is a great companion for the time in Nepal.

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 !
