2 Great Days in Kathmandu I'd booked 2 extra days at the start of my holiday and was expecting to be a part of a group of 12, how lucky I was that I was the only one on the trip so I got Hari all to myself to show me round his great city. He was very punctual on both days and we hit it off straight away, he was very warm and friendly and I loved being with Hari as he showed me the "real" Kathmandhu visiting a locals cafe for breakfast and a lovely cake stall too that the locals frequent as I didn't want to go to the "tourist" traps. I am a serious Travel Photographer so Hari adapted the trip so I could get to capture some great scenes and I'm known for taking a LOT of photos but Hari was very patient in waiting and letting me do my stuff, he even knew a friend who owned an art shop near a crowded Temple but who also had a superb of a rooftop view out across the city, not only did he take me up through the shop for a superb view but we got to enjoy some ice cold beers whilst we sat and chatted and admired the views away from the masses of tourists - a great experience. We used public transport on the first day but this proved to be difficult as all the vehicles were overfull with locals so the 2nd day Hari was "resourceful" in coming up with a better plan of how we could get around the city - can't say too much but it was great fun and I loved it! We spent a lot of time watching the Funerals at the Ghats and his knowledge and explanation of what was happening at each stage made it all the more interesting. I'd recommend Hari as a Guide anyday - a lovely man amongst a country full of lovely , happy people - I'll be back to Nepal one day and will definitely be hooking up with Hari for a beer or 2 when I do! All the very best Hari

We did Kathmandu Valley tour. Hari - Excells At Customer Service And Personal Attention! He’s familiar, looked after my wife and I over a ten day visit to his country. He was punctual, attentive to our questions and need to understand rather than just visit at a superficial level. We made a friendship rather than having a guide, this certainly made for a great relationship and a very meaningful time. We were able to be flexible and move into a local arena of living, eating and exploring, there were no discernible boundaries constraining our movements. In short a truly excellent companion.

We did the Gokyo-Renjo La Pass trek this last October with Nepal Trek Ways and is was a fantastic journey! Bikash was our guide. He is very experienced and skilled, always prepared to answer questions and a pleasent person to be around. He really knows the area and obviously loves it and proudly shows it to you. The beautiful views will do the rest! We also did a citytour in Bhaktapur with Hari. He is also a very skilled guide who knows everything there is to tell about this beautiful part of Kathmandu. It’s really a nice way to learn a lot more about this district than what is mentioned in your Lonely Planet! Also the tour to Monkey Temple with Bikash as a guide was very impressive and a great experience. Everything was very well organised and we can absolutely recommend Nepal Trek Ways if you are thinking about trekking in Nepal!

My friend and I did a 15 day trek to Everest Base Camp and through 2 of the 3 high passes. Bikash Maharjan was our guide. He was very knowledgable and prepared for any dangerous situations. We really enjoyed his company and consider him a great friend who we'd definitely choose as our guide if we ever did any other treks in Nepal! His English is very good and he always answered our questions. We also had a tour of Bhaktapur by Hari Bhuju who is also with Nepal Trek Ways and he was very knowledgable as well. Everything was well organized and I had an unforgettable experience in Nepal. I highly recommend Nepal Trek Ways to anyone visiting Nepal!!

On March I did 9 days ABC trek together with Nepal Trek Ways.My guide was Bikash Maharjan. I was very happy with services. It was amazing experience, and he did excellent job. Hopefully next year I can come back and do another trek, and only with the same company. I can trust them!

We had a wonderful 2 week trek with Nepal Trek Ways. We were picked up from the airport and brought to the hotel when we arrived in Kathmandu and received a complete briefing the next day. A city tour of Bhaktapur was included, Hari gave is great insight in local culture and architecture. The trek to Gokyo was quite an experience, our guide Bikash is a knowledgable and fun guy to be with. The arrangement of flights, permits, food and lodging was very smooth and Bikash told us a lot about the Himalayas and the people living there. He carried fresh fruit in his backpack to offer us a fruit plate every night after dinner :-) The trek was pleasant, safe and challenging, an experience of a lifetime. Many thanks to Hari and Bikash. See you next time!

We went the Manaslutrail at the beginning of May 2019. The landscape and the people were an inspiration in themselves. But through our Guide Suray and our Sherpa Tendee our hike became an unforgettable experience for both of us. We always felt very safe. The two acted as a team and adapted the route flexibly to our speed and our desire for particularly beautiful places with fewer other tourists. There is no better way to do this. We can recommend the agency to anyone who wants to experience the Manaslutrail individually. It was also very nice that the two owners of the agency, Bikash and Hari, took us on a city tour through Kathmandu the day before our flight home.

Hari, the owner of this company, led us through the streets of Bhaktapur. He has explained every single fact and was able to answer our questions. We have not only visited the main squares but were lucky enough to explore a lot of backstreets and hidden ways and were able to experience the life of the people as it goes on for decades of years. We had a really good time and highly recommend this company...as we have learned they also provide way more attractions.

Apr 2022 • Friends We feel so lucky and happy to have found Nepal Trek Ways and doing the Manaslu Circuit Trek with Hari's Team. They provided us with everything we needed to have and know, were always available for our questions beforehand, during and after the trek (also during the weeks before our flight to Nepal. Thanks for your patience and dedication, Bikash :)), showed us an extraordinary hospitality and just made our trip to Nepal an unforgettable experience which we will always carry in our hearts. So if you are looking for an experienced, licensed agency and guides - look no further but contact Hari and his team and look forward to a very special time :) We did the Manaslu Circuit within 14 days (12 days hiking, 2 days travel by jeep/transport). Starting in Sotchi Kola and ending in Tal. Rojan was our guide and tried to make every wish come true - and he succeeded :) (from finding the prettiest lodges with the best views, to finding a yarn dealer in the mountains, to recommending a tatoo studio in Kathmandu...). Also we had the possibility to adjust our itinerary along the way - according to weather and preference. We miss Nepal already and will soon, soon be back :) Thanks for everything, Nadine ( Nadine-bee@gmx.de)

We did the Manaslu Trek in April 2022 and it was an indescribable experience. The first contact in Germany was with Bikash, who always answered all our questions very quickly. Even then it felt like we were not communicating with strangers, he gave us great tips about the packing list and made our anticipation grow every day. Once we arrived in Kathmandu, the pic up service worked great and we were finally able to meet Hari,Bikash and our guide Ross. The organisation with the permits was also totally great. From the first day of the trek, Ross was an attentive, more than friendly, obliging and funny guide who always had everything in view. Whether we wanted tea, a break, a photo stop, to experience the golden our at 5:30am yoga in the Morning or just to pick up the pace to escape the rain. The lodges were all a pleasure and through Ross we came into so much contact with themagical people of Manaslu Circuit. of Ross gave us so much information about the country and its people and his selfless nature made every day a pure pleasure. In the background, the best transfer was organised for us and we are very happy and grateful to have met these great people from the team. We enjoyed the exceptional hospitality and will be back as soon as possible. We may have come as clients but we left as friends and have a backpack full of magical moments. These lines cannot describe how incredible this tour was. Gabi from Nuremberg (gabi.mentessidou@gmail.com)

Hey Hari, just wanted to thank you for putting together our Ruby Valley trek! It was a hell of an adventure and an amazing time. Bimal and Melama took excellent care of us - such fantastic people and company on the trek. I hope to be back to Nepal in the future to do another trek with them!!

An Unforgettable Trekking Experience - Manaslu Trek Oct 2023 • Friends In the beginning, I dreamt of conquering the mighty Mount Everest, but fate had a grander plan, unveiling the enchanting Manaslu Trek. This journey wasn't a compromise; it was a revelation – a perfect fusion of natural wonders, expert guidance, and an unexpected guardian angel. ????? Each day on the Manaslu Trek gifted us a unique spectacle of jaw-dropping landscapes. Nature's diversity was astonishing, from lush forests to arid terrains, cascading waterfalls to serene alpine lakes. The Manaslu region was a living masterpiece, a constantly changing canvas that left me spellbound. ????? Our guide, Sundeep, became the heartbeat of this unforgettable adventure. His professionalism was surpassed only by his warmth and kindness. Sundeep had a gift for breathing life into the mountains, sharing captivating insights about the region's history, geology, and the flora and fauna. His tales about the local villagers and their culture enriched our journey. ????? The true magic of our Manaslu adventure was embodied by our guardian angel, Thakalie – our dedicated porter. With a smile and unwavering positivity, Thakalie shouldered our burdens, making us feel as if we had a genuine guardian angel watching over us. His boundless support and joyful disposition transformed a challenging expedition into a heartwarming experience. ????? What elevated this trek even more was the profound bond that blossomed within our group. We quickly became a family, bound by our shared passion for adventure and a desire to explore Manaslu's captivating landscapes. Together, we celebrated triumphs, overcame challenges, and etched memories that will forever dwell in our hearts. ????? While physically demanding, the Manaslu Trek was undeniably rewarding. It tested our limits and rewarded us with vistas that only a select few are privileged to witness. From the first glimpse of snow-capped peaks to the final steps back to civilization, the Manaslu Circuit was a journey that I will forever treasure. ????? I wholeheartedly recommend this trek, especially if you seek an alternative to the crowded Everest region. The Manaslu Circuit offers a perfect blend of adventure, natural beauty, and cultural immersion. My profound gratitude extends to Hari, Sundeep, Thakalie, and the entire team for crafting an unforgettable adventure.
