Traveler Reviews

Tej is very professional and took care of every detail for our Everest View Point trek. From arranging good stays to making sure we eat good food, he was very particular in his approach. I would totally use his services again, when I will go next time. The guide and porter, which Tej arranged did cover everything and I had a seamless trek in Khumbu. I wish Nepal Alternative Treks & Expeditions Pvt. Ltd. all the very best with their endeavors.

We went on a 5 day trek in the Khumbu (Everest) region; Thal was a great guide, very knowledgeable about everything and very pragmatic and trying to find the most comfortable spots for us. Tej is a great owner and was extremely accommodating before and after the trek as well! I would absolutely use NAT&E again for any trekking or climbing expeditions. Thanks again, guys!
