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

We traveled in a group of three (my wife, her father and me) by trekking from north of Jomsom to Lo Manthang to visit the Tiji festival. The way back ended in Muktinath.
We did a variation of the normal route to accommodate additional visits and stayed a couple of days longer in Mustang.

The planning of our changes before our arrival in was very smooth and the company was flexible to fulfill our wishes. Additional costs (i.e. for a third porter) were responsible.
When we arrived in Kathmandu we were welcomed by the chef’s wife and driven to our hotel.

We meet the guide for the trek itself in Pokhara the night before the departure to Mustang. He went through the route with us and clarified open questions.
The team (guide + 3 porter) was very friendly and helpful for the entire trip. The routes we took were safe, though one needs to be aware that some spots can be challenging.

The tour itself was physically demanding but rewarded with stunning views and great impressions of the country.

The only problem we had was our guest house in Lo Manthang which insisted that we need to eat there, despite that the food was rather mediocre and there were plenty of others with better food. In general, the tea houses can be a bit basic, especially if the busy Tiji festival is happening, NAT tried to get us the best rooms they could, but with limited availability, there were often none.

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 !
