We don't have enough words to express the feelings we've had on this journey. Everyone told us that Nepal was a beautiful country, with very kind people, etc. But we could never imagine what we've lived with Plan Himalaya. Everything went perfect, the well-chosen accommodations, the visit to most important places, the mini trekking... But what has most impressed us is the human quality of Nepalis, especially of the Plan Himalaya team. If you want to travel to Nepal, no doubt, contact them, you won't regret it! It was one of the best experiences! Thank you Jordi, Chandra, Chanda and the girls, Rajkumar and the drivers (sorry, we don't remember the names) for this incredible experience!!! See you soon!

I did my first trip to Pokhara and Poon Hill trek, all very well organized by Jordi and Chandra, flights, transports, hotels, guide, food and more. Kindly ask for Bishnu guide availability, very kind person, he was the responsible of the trekking itself to be confortable and above expectations. Thanks guys for everything, a trip i will never forget, see you next time. P.D.: Chandra try the asado in a parrilla argentina ;)

We just came back from a trip to Sikkim and Darjeeling guided by the wonderful Subash with the support of amazing driver Aman. Even though we went in the midst of the monsoon season, we enjoyed very much every visit. Monsoon means more than probable rain every day or almost and foggy skies, so we could not really enjoy the wonderful scenery at its fullest. This is sad, and has to be carefully consider before deciding to visit. If you can only travel during monsoon season (July-September) you have to have a really good list of pros and cons and decide by yourself.
Cons: probably not being able to enjoy the magnificent scenery at its fullest (or maybe you're lucky!).
Pros: traveling during this season means that you are almost alone, with hardly other tourists around (apparently, during high season Sikkim is packed with local Indian and international tourists). This made us feel very special and enabled us to have experiences that we probably wouldn't have had during high season, like fully interacting with the locals. Not to mention being able to stay at amazing hotels, such as the one in Darjeeling, from the colonial era (that was like traveling in time!!!).
Anyway, the most remarkable point in the trip were the guide, Subash, and the driver, Aman. They REALLY went the extra mile with us, caring to all our needs and being totally professional without ever expecting anything back from us. We now can call each other "friends". They exceeded all our expectations and, as an example, when they discovered it was our wedding anniversary they ordered a cake customized for us to celebrate as a wonderful surprise!
It's not easy to drive in the Sikkim roads and even more during monsoon season, when everything is wet, full of potholes, cascading water, enormous trucks coming the other way in the narrowest of roads... This was awesome! Thank you, Subash and Aman!

What an amazing trip. I only had limited time and wanted to see some of the Manaslu circuit - Chandra devised an itinerary that would allow me to make the most of my time. Everything was beautifully organised and the trip ran without a hiccup. My guide Jiwan was an absolute pleasure - professional, attentive, and a fountain of knowledge. My driver had nerves of steel and got me there and back safely and comfortably. I would highly recommend - I can’t wait to come back.

I travelled with plan Himalaya for a month long trip in May 2022, alone with guide and porter.
A trek in the Anapurna range and the famous Everest base camp via Gokyo and Cho La.
This trip was a real adventure! Beautiful local encounters, breathtaking landscapes and always with a smile. The motto: "Always be positive", whether it be in the physical efforts at altitude or in the event of capricious weather.
Thanks to Plan Himalaya for its quality and professionalism in creating this trip.
Chandra is always listening and knows how to choose the best itineraries, attentive guides and porters (who have become my friends) in order to make the Nepalese experience unique!
I would definitely recommend Plan Himalaya for a future trek in Nepal.

Thank you Chandra for this unforgettable stay, I'll come back to Nepal for sure!

One could not have wished a more wonderful experience. Chandra has tailor made an adventure that was exceptional in many ways by the quality of the organisation, the perfect gentleness and dedication of our team of guide and porter and the absolute answer ability in case of need. Taking into account the bad weather conditions that cut many treks in Annapurna, Chandra reoriented us towards another fabulous trek area in Nepal: the Langtang region, which also proved to be more adequate to my sister’s physical capacities and was equally impressive and maybe less touristic. The nature and landscapes were an absolute marvel! Chandra is one to be trusted and listened to as his concern for his clients is high as his wiseness. Happy experience! We will come back !

I travelled on the same trek as another reviewer here, WalterWhitleyBay, and agree completely with his review. Upper Mustang is stunning. Highlights are too many to list but include the people, the huge high desert landscapes, the ancient villages, the monasteries, hunting for fossils in the river, seeing jackals, blue sheep and deer, and chilling out in Lo Manthang. Chandra of Plan Himalaya listened to what we wanted and organised a great trip. Rohit our guide was excellent, very knowledgeable, helpful and fluent in English. Dorna our porter was simply one of the loveliest people I've ever met. I would recommend Plan Himalaya and Chandra without hesitation for any Nepal trek.

Thank you so much to Chandra and Plan Himalaya for organising my trip to Annapurna Base Camp and taking the time to hang out with me !
It was perfect, from A to Z. The guide and porter he chose for me were extremely nice and experienced and they told me a lot about the local culture.
I will definitely come back and contact Chandra again for my next trek.
See you soon and thank you very much again !
