Cable Car Trip near Kathmandu
Me and my friends travelled Kathmandu this July and we went for a short distance trip to Chandragiri Hill. Cable Car took us to Chandragiri hill, which is best to escape from hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. The view of Kathmandu was beautiful as rain cleared up the sky. The guide we were provided was professional and he told us incredible stories of the hill. Overall it was fantastic trip.

Trekking, Local, culture views and sites
5 days in Nepal trek was awesome. We went to Sundarijal, then to Chisapani walking a lot of stairs and then to Nagarkot. We could see beautiful peaks from Dhaulagiri to Everest. People at Sundarijal seem very friendly. All in all, our trek was very nice and we enjoyed it very much.

Amazing Trip!
Thank you to the folks at NBM Travel for an awesome trip to Nepal! Shristi was incredibly helpful with coordinating everything and answering all of my silly logistical questions from the moment I booked the trip. My tour guide Mani provided so much support on the tour, from sharing his knowledge about Nepali culture and history, to helping me find souvenirs at a good price, to rearranging our itinerary when we had weather delays. I chose this tour specifically to learn about the many cultures and lifestyles of Nepal and was not disappointed. Each location was so different from the last - Kathmandu is the chaotic capital, Chitwan is a gorgeous jungle where you’ll see animals that you’d never expect to see up close in real life (still can’t believe how close I was to crocodiles and a rhino!), and Pokhara feels like a cute beach resort. We were unable to go to Lumbini due to weather, so we spent an extra day in Pokhara and an extra day in Kathmandu, which worked out fine for relaxing and shopping. Even the bus rides between cities were interesting because you could see examples of life in the countryside and some really cool landscapes. There was a decent balance of sightseeing and free time, and I really liked each of the hotels we stayed at. If you are interested in learning about Nepal beyond trekking, this is a great introduction. They have such an interesting diversity and unique history, I wish more people knew about it! If you go in July, like I did, you’ll likely catch some rain (monsoon season), so make sure you pack accordingly! Rain boots, rain coat, and quick dry pants worked well on rainy days and the boat tour/jungle trek in Chitwan, plus a few pairs of comfortable pants and a pair of sandals for sunny days. Don’t let the name “monsoon” scare you off from coming if this is the only time of year you can go. You’ll still see, do, and eat a lot! (Make sure you have dal bhat and momo while you are here...they are the best!)

Exciting Kathmandu Heritage Site Delight
We enjoyed a rich experience of Kathmandu’s UNESCO world heritage sites during our guided tour today. Our amazing guide, “Forty” Phadinra Raj, shared expert knowledge and detailed insight on sites visited including Durbar Square, Monkey Temple, the Crematoria and Boudhanath Stupa. We also tasted yummy Tibetan Cuisine and experienced the intricacies of historical art work practices and healing bowl power. Travelling through the busy and congested Kathmandu roads provided further insights into daily life experiences of commuters. Thoroughly, an exciting Kathmandu adventure!

9 day Poon hill trek
NBM Travel were really friendly with a great young team. The trek was well organised, met at the airport and supported straight away with a good hotel. My guide, Deepak, was excellent throughout. Very patient and supportive during the 4000 odd steps going up with a lot of obvious enthusiasm for the country and environment. A good friend for a solo trek. Accomodation on the trek itself was really good too, especially at the top with views to the mountains. The heaviest snow in years made the scenery even more spectacular. An unforgettable trip and i reccomend the company to anyone looking for a piece of adventure.

This is the minimum to see in Kathmandu
If you had only one day in Kathmandu, this tour would cover your must see locations: the Monkey temple, Durbar square, Boudanath Stupa, and Pashtipath temple complexes.

Great Company, Great Guide
I undertook a 17 day Annapurna Circuit trek with my guide Nabaraj Adhikari in September 2018. As I had limited time to complete the trip, it was still slightly off peak (with unpredictable weather) and I was a solo traveler I opted to hire a guide to be on the safe side. Booking with NBM was a great, I asked for some inclusions that were not on the standard circuit agendas and they more than happily included them. The the lady from the office I was in correspondence with (Shristi) was immensely helpful from being quick to respond to emails to locating me when I got lost in the maze of Thamel looking for the office. I will also add the price was very very reasonable compared to many companies. My guide Nabaraj Adhikari was a great traveling companion and friend throughout the trip. As well as proving invaluable when encountering the unavoidable issues the Nepalese weather and mountains will throw at you (mainly landslides during my trip). Additionally having a guide was very helpful in seeing things you might miss without a local assisting and took the potential stress out of navigating and timings throughout the trip. 100% would recommend both my guide and NBM !!!

The best travel agency
If you are a Chinese but cannot speak Chinese very well, the stuff of this agency would help you and satisfy all your needs. I highly recommend the hotels rooms at the upsatires of the agency office, I spent about 2 night in there and other nights in other hotels, I have to say their hotels rooms are the best comparing with other hotels in the same amount of price.
