          A magical once in a lifetime experience
          An incredible once in lifetime experience. Flying across the Himalayas and seeing Mount Everest from the sky is something I will never forget. I would’ve never thought I would get to witness something so magical. The weather was in our favor and we got clear skies which made the experience unforgettable. You get a pamphlet with the names of the mountains and the flight attendants show you what you’re seeing. I also love that you get a certificate signed by the pilot with the date of the flight.

          Awesome tour and experience!
          This tour has to be one of the most incredible experiences I've ever had. Kathmandu is such a fascinating city and learning about it's history, culture and traditions all while witnessing its incredible and intricate architecture, seeing it's beautiful people and exploring it's streets was such an amazing and enriching experience. Big shout out to Dipendra, our tour guide. He was such a cool guy. So friendly and knowledgeable. Also a great photographer ;) He really made this an unforgettable and immersive experience. I hope he's your guide if you book this tour!

          Base camp Everest
          I went recently with my friends to Everest Base Camp through Himalayan social Journey. Its an amazing place. Tough and challenging but worth every minute and penny. Staff were supportive. They provided all the required support like every day briefings, handhold support, daily reviews and expected behavioural changes/ illnesses updates . Sp02 measured every night. We had engaging conversations at nights scenic mountain visits in the mornings. Its a wonderful experience that happens in once a lifetime. Thanks team and staff. Special thanks to Santosh for being there when I was low and sick. I couldn’t have reach base camp without his support.

          About EBC treck guide
          HSJ organized this treck very well. The tour guide Santosh has full knowledge of EBC treck every inch. As part of daily plans, guide taught all treckers what to do what not to do the things. How to maintain Oxygen levels and hydration and injury free treck... All those things are taken care by guide Santosh. Kudos to the assistent guides Arjun, Chirin. All the guides lead the treck as team work.

          Wonderful experience of the EBC trek
          We just finished the base camp trek with the Himalyan Social Journey. Overall experience was amazing especially with Santosh our lead guide in the trek and Arjun and Sherry were helping and taking care of all of us throughout the journey. Though EBC is considered as one of the challenging trek but the guidance and knowledge shared by Santosh made it easy for all of us.

          The entire trip was surreal, as this was my first multi-day trek and I couldn’t have chosen a better one! The views were simply stunning all the way. And Thanks to Himalayan social journey for their expert guidance and good arrangements. Special Thanks to Mingmar Sherpa who really knows his job very well! And Thanks to Thrillophilia for connecting us with Himalayan social journey and Mingmar. Overall it was a fantastic trek to EBC with lifetime of memories. Thanks much!

          Amazing experience, highly recommend Himalayan Social Journey
          Let me start by recognizing our guide Santosh and his team of sherpas, Arjun, Janak and Dhaval who made this an amazing experience with 100% success rate with all 19 of us completing EBC trek. They were extremely knowledgeable, helpful, witty and entertaining who made this challenging journey very enjoyable. The management team of Ram, Amrit and Usha were also very helpful, approachable and flexible in adjusting our plans. Overall great experience and I would highly recommend Himalayan Social Journey.

          We had the most incredible time! HSJ were so lovely, helpful and accommodating during our entire trip. Our guide Ram and porter Raj were also incredible during our trek. We can’t recommend HSJ more and we will be definitely be going with this company for our next trek in Nepal!

          Recommended and would use HSJ again
          Very good. We did the Annapurna Basecamp (ABC) trek in October/November 2023. Our guide Ganesh was excellent throughout and looked after us very well on the trek and then showing us around Pokhara. Only hiccup came at the very start of the trip in Kathmandu when our guided tour became unguided as the guide had gone to celebrate Dashain. We would use HSJ again.

          Manaslu circuit trek 15 days
          We were a two person group that had a fantastic and smooth trekking experience in the manaslu region. Our guide Dipak was very attentive and on point the whole trip. He had a great sense of humour and ability to engage with us and other trekkers on the journey. Dipak was a league above all the other guides during the circuit. We also had a porter included in the package, Dillip, who was polite and just smashed it physically the whole circuit with our bags. The communication with Himalayan Social Journey was excellent and prompt, which we mostly did via email or WhatsApp. Ram the owner was friendly and excellent in checking in and assisting us with future plans. Highly recommend.

          Trek to EBC
          Thank you to entire HSJ team for making our dream come realize. Both Guides Khilraj and Siddarth were cooperative and always available to adrress any issue or challenges during the course of this trek. The only area i see an improvement requires is on selection of hotel especially at Namache Bazar. The food was not that great and very expensive compared to other hotel Overall nice experience .

          EBC Trek-2024 # Sourabh Mulavekar
          Trekking in Nepal is more than just trekking to Base Camp or prominent landmarks up in the higher altitude. Special thanks to our guide Mr. Mingmar Sherpa. Trekking in Nepal is exploring the beautiful-quaint mountain villages. immersing in mountain culture and lifestyle conquering soaring heights savoring DAL BHAT and local Nepalese dishes sleeping in a local teahouse embracing mountain vistas, including some of the highest mountains in the world traversing rugged trails, through lush forest, and diverse landscapes escaping from the city lifestyle and enjoying a unique way of life and more

        Amazing Nepal
        May 2024 • Family
        The trip to Nepal was incredible thanks to Usha and the team at Himalayan social journey. They organised all the sightseeing tours for Kathmandu and Pokhara with drivers and guides which were all amazing . We had to reschedule a few things and Usha helped us and was very flexible and helpful.

        So, basically all the Kathmandu day tours are exactly the same...you are going to see the monkey temple, Pashupatinath, the stupa and Patan Durbar square...none of these sights is spectacular but odds are you have a day to kill in KTM before or after trekking.

        The reason I am giving this 3/5 is the unadvertised sales pitches you are going to get (and this company is surely the same as all the others, so this is not a problem unique to Himalayan Social Journeys)...every tour you are going to go on in or around Kathmandu is going to feature the visit to the Thangka painting art school, the singing bowl store (the only one with authentic singing bowls!), a cashmere store (the only one with authentic cashmere) and whatever other store is relevant to your tour (our tour with the same company to Bhaktapur added a pottery store)...don't get me wrong, you can decline and you aren't forced to buy anything but it's also not what I signed up for and declining will shorten your tour.

        To be clear, EVERY company is going to do the same thing. It just gets wearisome on tour #2 and #3 when you go through the same process.

        Great tour
        We recently did a sightseeing tour of Kathmandu with a private car/driver, visiting Swayambhunath temple, Patan durbar square, Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa. Our driver was punctual and patiently waited while we took our time at the sights. Overall a great tour seeing the key sights of Kathmandu.

        A must when visiting Kathmandu!
        Dec 2019 • Solo
        I had a spare day in Kathmandu and wanted to see some of the city’s cultural sights. I was told that there’s usually a full group on the tour, but I was the only person on this occasion meaning that the time spent at each stop was down to me.

        Dilip, my driver, was informative and friendly and is also a master of navigating the city’s hectic traffic system!

        All four sights were fascinating - Pashupatinath Temple and Swayambhunath Temple in particular, and I fully enjoyed the day.

        Things to note: a tour guide inside each temple is not included in the price.
