Enjoy the intricate wood and stone carvings and admire the Vishnu altar inside, dedicated to the Hindu god of preservation.

        A trip of a lifetime
        This was a tour of a lifetime, so many things to see and experience. The Outfitter Nepal staff and guides were all knowledgeable, helpful, and very friendly, they took care of us at all times. The price was very affordable. We also took our granddaughter on this tour and she was amazed at all the things we saw. We enthusiastically recommend this company to any traveler, solo or with family.

        Amazing experience
        We booked the EBC 12 day trip months ahead of time but Outfitter were very flexible with booking, the itinerary and payment method. We received a thick sleeping bag and coat, as well as crampons, in case we needed them. We had the best guides Sudip and Bir, who looked after us extremely well and taught us loads about the region! They came with a positive energy everyday and were like friends by the end of the trip. A full on adventure, more than just a trek, thanks for all the card games and conversations! We've already decided to come back!

        Trekking the Manaslu Circuit
        I had the most amazing experience on the Manaslu circuit. Spectacular scenery, amazing untouched Tibetan culture and warm hospitality. I highly recommend Outfitter Nepal. Every interaction with them was prompt and top notch. My guide Ravi was amazing and highly professional. He took me through the Larke Pass despite the fears and doubts. I can’t thank him enough!

        Everest Base Camp Trek
        What an absolutely fantastic team of people! From the moment you land to the day you leave you are completely taken care of in every way. You literally don’t have to worry about a thing… transport, flights, food, accommodation everything is incredibly well organised. We were very lucky to have a Hom as our guide with over 25yrs of experience we knew we were in incredibly knowledgeable and safe hands. The porters were fantastic always friendly and helpful… the entire team was always looking out for you. We had a case of altitude sickness in our team and unfortunately descending to a lower altitude was necessary. Hom made an extra 4 hour round trip (in addition to the 6 hour day already planned) to make sure our team member was safely down at the required altitude. Hom arranged and paid for new accommodation and food then returned to the group. Everything was perfectly done. Travel with Outfitter with extreme confidence, these guys are Legends :) Thank you for an amazing experience guys! Hopefully we’ll meet again one day.

        Beautiful Manaslu Circuit Trek
        This is our 3rd trip to Nepal and each time we have engaged the services of Outfitter Nepal. They took care of everything for us. Transport accommodation, food and an additional side tour to Chitwan National Park also. Our senior guide Harry was so professional and friendly and made our experience very memorable. Both our guide Harry and porter Rajan took great care of us. The Manaslu Circuit Trek had spectacular scenery and passed through lovely villages where we were able to experience the local culture. I highly recommend Outfitter Nepal to organise any tour in Nepal. Contact Raj at Outfitter Nepal to book your next tour and ask for Guide Harry to show you the way!

        Great experience!
        Great company! What a fantastic company! I went to EBC and had a great guide and porter. The guide arranged great teahouses for us to sleep and told us about the surroundings.... The price you pay is including everything. So no extra costs. They even provide for a sleeping bag or coat if needed. When we came back, we were invited for a dinner! I would strongly recommended Outfitter Nepal! Datum van activiteit: maart 2024

        Poon Hill Trek with Rabi - Dec 2023 - 5 stars ⭐️
        My partner and I trekked to Poon Hill with Rabi in December 2023. What an unbelievable experience, this is one of the shorter treks in the region however seeing the Himalaya what felt like up close was breathtaking. Rabi supported us the whole way, he has great knowledge of the mountains and good sense of humour. This was a quieter time of year so was lucky enough to have a lot of the paths to ourselves and lodges were very relaxing. We would love to go back and 100% recommend to anyone thinking of going. Thank you Rabi!

        Great way to see Nepal. Good value. From a tour that cares.
        This tour was fantastic. It starts with the organizer Raj whom I met. He went over all the plans, details, and itinerary with me. It's a great itinerary, really. However I requested some changes because i was feeling adventurous and Outfitter Nepal was more than willing to accommodate. I paid a bit extra for unforseen permit needed for trekking but fair price. For Kathmandu I had a guide, Birodh, who was great. He knows his stuff and have some passion in story telling which I appreciate. He also knows some awesome instagram videos/photos spots. My overall guide was Ravi, (I think some reviews call him Robby?). He is also great and very accommodating. He goes with me to all the destinations from city to city, which is nice. He's well experienced and friendly, and looks out for you. He very knowledgeable in trekking and moutains around nepal as well. He has been doing this for a long time so he knows what's up. Unfortunately when I was in Nepal (April 2024) there is a massive smog. Both from fire in Nepal, Pollution/fire from India, and many other factors... I was not able to see the Annapurna moutains. We really did try. From phokhara, even went up to sarangkot, and other places but the smoke was too thick. My only thing is I wished the tour communicated the possibility of me not seeing snow moutains better, but it's also my own fault for not doing research and just bad luck. Chitwan was pretty awesome, the place you'll stay is fantastic. Boat ride was majestic. I saw incredible animals both up close and far away. Transportation between cities is by bus. No worries about bathrooms because it stops often. Bus itself is fine too, but it will be a bumpy ride due to nepali roads. Every hotel they booked is great. I think this tour is a good value too. Some tours skimp out and get you bad accommodations. They really put in the work and thoughts to make sure you have the best time possible. There's even some small things they do that I won't spoil for you. Overall, I do recommend Outfitter Nepal and Best of Nepal tour for those who want to visit Nepal, and see Nepal with a tour and not have to worry about doing every little thing on your own which can be a hassle.

        Excellent experience.
        From the moment I started communicating with Outfitter Nepal (ON), I have been very pleased with the timing of their response and information they provide. Their price was great and it included a guide (Sanjay) and two porters for our group of four. This was a personal group of just friends from Texas doing the EBC trek and ON was able to accommodate our group without grouping us with strangers from all over the world. From the moment we arrived in Kathmandu, Sanjay was waiting for us at the airport and took us to the hotel. ON arranged our flight to Lukla and we were off from there. I would say this was an excellent experience with ON and if/when we book another expedition, I won’t even look for another outfitter because ON took such great care of us. After the trek was over they presented us with plaques for our achievement and a farewell dinner. This is a 5-star company and their staff is great. We will always remember the great time we had and how well we were taken care of.

        Unforgettable Manaslu and Annapurna trek
        Having turned up in Nepal with nothing booked, we contacted Outfitters Nepal who were able to make our plans a reality. We initially met with Raj and explained that we would like to do a combination of the Annapurna and Manaslu circuit treks in one 3 week adventure. He quickly got on board with this, and suggested a series of side treks to enhance our trip. He was able to organise a guide with just 2 days notice and sorted our permits. We were able to meet Kamal (our guide) the day before leaving and set off on the bus the next day. We went on to have the most phenomenal time trekking around the Himalayas. Kamal ensured we were comfortable and well looked after throughout. He was flexible and allowed us to combine our main trek with a series of great side treks which we often decided on at the last minute! He also advised us on changing our itinerary based on weather and distances, allowing us to go over Larke pass in beautiful sunshine rather than the forecasted rain the next day. Despite being a more junior guide, Kamal provided us with an unforgettable trip and ensured everything ran safely and smoothly. Outfitters Nepal and Kamal were professional and excellent throughout - would highly recommend!

        Best Trekking Agency in Nepal
        Once again, I am here to share my experience with Outfitter and its exceptional team! I returned to Nepal for another month of trekking, and without hesitation, I chose Outfitter again. As a solo trekker, I place immense trust in their team, accommodation choices, and proposed itineraries. This time, I completed both the Manaslu Circuit Trek and Langtang Valley Trek, both of which were incredible and highly recommended adventures. I extend my heartfelt thanks to my friends Kiran and Raj for their exceptional care throughout the journey. I'm already looking forward to more adventures with Outfitter next year!!! 🇳🇵❤️

      After my trip in upper Himalayas in the Everest region, we wanted to do a smaller, more relaxed trip around kathmandu. We stumbled upon Outfitter Nepal, with one of their guides, Birodh. It was such a great way to explore the outskirts of Kathmandu especially because of the knowledge Birodh shared to us about the landscape and Nepalese culture. I highly recommend this trip!

      I want to thank company Outfitter Nepal for my "Nagarkot Sunrise and Hike" day tour. Starting from organizational moments from Russia and to the end - all was very organized, they replied promptly and very constructive. When I was choosing my tour it turned out that many companies do not organize tours for one person, but what I should do if I travel alone?) Outfiter Nepal without any hesitates agreed to organize Tour only for me. And though I wasn't lucky to see sunrise due to the weather conditions, I've anyway obtained the day full of positive emotions and nice views further during the hiking. Big thanks to my guide - Birodh - very positive person and interesting interlocutor. He made a great contribution to the overall impression of my day. Other time I in Nepal - I will definitely go to a new Tour with your company

      My husband and I recently enjoyed a sunrise viewing of the Himalayas from Nagarkot, a village in the hills surrounding the Kathmandu Valley. After setting off pre-dawn from Kathmandu with our guide Birodh Burlakoti from Outfitter Nepal, we arrived at Nagarkot after a drive of an hour or so. After a warming cup of Nepali coffee we ascended to the viewing area and were rewarded with spectacular views of the Himalayas. Mount Everest was clearly visible. After breakfast at a nearby hotel we hiked for several hours through villages, observing the local people going about their daily activities. Our hike concluded at the ancient Changunarayan temple. Thanks to Birodh for sharing your knowledge of local culture and flora and for your great company.
