Had such an excellent time with Shanker, whose congeniality and confidence were such a warm welcome to the world of Nepali Trekking. I also owe a great depth of gratitude to Shanker for his guidance during the snow storm at base camp, where his expertise and profound experience were a true saviour to me. Highly, highly recommended - I'm looking forwards to coming back next year to do the Everest Base Camp Trek with him!

This was a once in a life time holiday and was really pleased that Shanker and Namaste treks made it such a great experience. We spent an enjoyable two weeks trekking up to Everest Base Camp in Nov / Dec 2016. I found Namaste Treks to be well organised, and communicated well before our trip. Once there Shanker provided great accommodation in Katmandu, showed us the best places to eat and took us around the city. We then went on out trek, where I couldn't fault the guiding, accommodation and meals. I even became unwell at one point and Shanker went out of his way to make sure I was well looked after. Highly recommend!

Me and group of my firens have been to Nepal twice. First time we've travelled to Gokyo Valley, next trek we managed to Upper Mustang and Annapurna Sanctuary. Both times we trevelled with Shanker Rimal, which proved to be an excellent, protective and prudent guide, and which became our new brother in Asia. Based on such experience, we strongly recommend Him and the Namaste Treks as a reliable partner.

We are a family of 3 adults and Shanker was our guide to Everest Base Camp. He was extremely kind and was always making sure we had the best tea houses and accommodations. He is extremely knowledgeable about the region and answered all of our questions. He kept a good pace and when we needed to stop and rest he always made sure that we were feeling ok. If it had not been for him, I never would have made it to EBC. It was very tough for me, but with his help and assurance I was able to achieve my goal. I highly recommend Namaste Treks!!!!

As a group of 3 we hiked the Everest Base camp trek. Shanker was experienced and put us immediately at ease with any concerns we had. Unfortunately our trek was cut short by the April 2015 earthquake. However, Shanker's actions to guide us off the mountain, ensure we had safe places to sleep and get us new flight tickets when the airport was bursting with people trying to leave, was excellent. At a difficult time for himself and the porters who worked along side him, our safety and well being were paramount. I highly recommend trekking with him.
