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

With two friends we decided to trek to Tsum valley and then from Doban over the pass directly to Ruby valley. The organiser was Tej (Nepal alternative Treks & expeditions). Already before the trek we got the most fair prices from his agency when we ask to organise the trip. When we arrived to KTM, he (Tej) made our permits and we left already next day with the guide cum porter Samir.
The Tsum valley we didn’t like very much. It is beautiful nature, but many tourists, full traffic of mules with goods, road construction and specially VERY high prices in tea houses and homestays (dal bhat 650 to 700 rupees, black tea 80 to 100 rupees…
But we loved the Ruby valley with Ganesh himal views, no tourists, normal Nepali village life and normal prices for food and accommodation…
All together we spend 23 days and this was perfect experience we will never forget.
Thanks to Tej from Nepal alternative Treks & expeditions.

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 !
