I would like to share my lifetime experience I gained from travel in Nepal with a great guide Raj Tamang. We went on Annapurna Sanctuary trek. That one was walking with around 18 people for 14 days through amazing landscapes. The people from that group were from nearly every English-speaking country. Before the trip, I had my problems with English, but afterwards I kinda spoke freely. The large group of that trip was no problem at all - on contrary - it was an opportunity to meet with different people. The time slows down when you are walking and after 2 days it felt like the holidays took months. Didn't know which week day that was or what time. Eveything was cared off by our tour guide Raj Tamang and I could relax and always felt safe. This is a tremendous difference, when you say you could not have organized this trip nearly as good on your own. Do you remember a tee pause of your life? I do - several, but all are from that trip (and one from another). We have seen a lot. That makes our lifes go fast, because there is nothing really new. When I entered Nepal: so many things were completely different, amazing... A person who walked a steep mountain carrying his grandma in a basket.

My family of 4 has just returned from one of our most memorable trips in Nepal. The memorable experience was made possible by the wonderful team from Responsible Adventures. They have truly lived up to their name. Although Raj was not able to join us due to conflicting schedule, the assigned trek leader Anand and team mates like Chandra have made efforts to see to our every need. Morning wake up call with a cup of piping hot tumeric ginger honey drink was much welcomed in a cold winter morning. Organic coffee accompanied by our preferred breakfast choice were served daily. Filtered water was made ready for us at anytime and organic food was served on most meals. We have fallen in love with Nepal and looking forward to another adventure with Responsible Adventures. Keep up the good work!

Had an incredible experience with Raj as my guide. He was always at his professional best overseeing every details of the trek. This was the 4th time I had the pleasure to be under his able hands. For a start, he made sure that I had all the right equipment before we flew to Lukla. Raj was always mindful that he had a 71 year old man in tow and was careful in maintaining a pace that I could follow comfortably. The extra effort he made to ensure that I had the food I liked such as cacao powder, turmeric and honey drinks, guacamole etc was most commendable. It really made my day to have such comfort foods during this challenging trek. Knowing I am an avid golfer, he actually arranged for me to tee off at 3 different locations at over 5000m, the highest and toughest one was on Base Camp itself as it was snowing and the wind was blowing really hard. It was an experience never to be forgotten. I Have no hesitation to recommend my friends to trek with Raj and his Responsible Adventures. Not only is he very knowledgeable about the mountains and the safety issues, he is extremely mindful of the cultural and historical heritage of the people of Nepal. He is able to provide a safe, challenging and educational trek that only a guide with his years of experience can offer.

I just returned from a trip to Nepal, which was a place I have always wanted to travel to. I was keen to have the very best experience possible and did extensive research beforehand. During this search I came across Responsible Adventures in Kathmandu. Raj, the owner, arranged everything in Nepal for me, from the moment I arrived in Kathmandu to the moment I left Kathmandu 22 days later. By this I mean that he organised the amazing Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek (which on this occasion he guided himself), flights to and from Lukla at the start of the trek, a porter (the wonderful and super-helpful Sundar), all accommodation and all food during my trek through this incredibly beautiful region. On top of that, he also organised flights to and from Pokhara west of Kathmandu, as well as again all accommodation and activities during my time there too. Some of many highlights were seeing several of the world’s highest peaks such as a helicopter flight to Annapurna sanctuary, hiking around the beautiful region of Pokhara to Australian Camp, selecting really beautiful accommodation with wonderful hosts, as well as just generally looking after me and ensuring that, importantly, we eat in restaurants where the food is safely prepared, which is quite an important topic when travelling to Nepal. Especially during my trip to Everest base camp, I repeatedly saw travellers that were obviously Ill-prepared or possibly had eaten food prepared in less than ideal sanitary conditions or ascending too quickly having to be evacuated by helicopter. Raj was constantly there to advise me on all aspects on especially food and mountain safety to minimise my chances of a similar fate, ensuring I acclimatise well. I well remember a fellow traveller on a helicopter flight from Pokhara to Annapurna Sanctuary, something which I spontaneously thought of the day before and which Raj organised at short notice for me, and who seems to have ascended too quickly on the Annapurna circuit and had to be evacuated. Note this was a young 25-year-old in perfect health, so all aspects of altitude sickness, mountain safety and being careful what you eat are all important topics when travelling to Nepal and I was lucky to be at all times looked after perfectly. On top of the above, Raj was a wonderful host, funny, friendly and at all times genuinely concerned about my well-being. On top of that, I had requested a few amendments to the normal itinerary, since I was keen to explore a bit more about the lasting legacy that Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay had left around the Solu Khumbu Region surrounding Mount Everest and throughout Nepal. Due to his extensive personal contacts, I got to meet some extremely interesting people that I’m quite sure other visitors to Nepal just don’t get to meet. Two examples that come to mind straight away was Karma, the lovely wife of Sherpa Tashi from Khumjung, both of which have become well known due to his 21 ascents of Mount Everest and featuring as the main characters in the movie documentary called “Sherpa”, as well as a really friendly Sherpa who was the first person to climb Mount Everest and then paraglide down from the summit. I don’t want to set an expectation for future travellers that they will get to meet these people but my point is that at all times did Raj and his team from Responsible Adventures go the extra mile and make my trip extra special, part of this being the interesting people I got to meet. I already look forward to, at one point in the future, being able to bring back my family to experience some more of Nepal, organised and guided by Raj and his team from Responsible Adventures. Thanks so much Raj for making my dream trip come a reality and for exceeding all expectations I had beforehand!
