My wife andI have just returned from almost a month in Nepal. Our whole trip was expertly planned and conducted with Firante tours based in Nepal. The business operator Janga Lama was our guide from start to finish and led us to Namche, Everest View Hotel then out West to Simikot for an unbelievable 5 day home stay adventure in the Himalayas at 3600m. Then a flight to Nepalgunj to visit Bardia National Park where we enjoyed the wonderful Rhino Lodge and even sighted the elusive Bengal Tiger. Janga is the ultimate professional, attending to all aspects of our trip. Excellent command of English with an in depth knowledge of all aspects of Nepalese life and culture, he made this trip truly memorable. All we had to do was soak it all up. I can unreservedly recommend Janga and his team from Firante Expeditions for your Nepal trip wherever you wish to go. From meeting you at the airport to seeing you off at the end you will be their number one concern and only need to enjoy the trip of a lifetime. Firante Expeditions will take care of you!

Janga is amazing. I connected with him through a friend and before I even landed in Nepal he was willing to help me with everything from plane tickets to Visas to general thoughts on our itinerary, and all with quick response time. He completely saved our last minute (and thus poorly planned) trek through the Three Passes with his efficient work ethic, genuine compassion, constant willingness to help, and wide range of experience that allowed him to casually recite detailed advice for any question we had. In the matter of two hours he had booked us hard to find plane tickets for the next day, taken us through the trek day by day with all his super helpful pro-tips, walked us through our budget, and shared anecdotes/pictures that brought the trip to life while sitting in his office. When our KTM-Lukla flight (inevitably) ended up getting cancelled due to bad weather the next day, he called us within an hour to report he had found us an in with a helicopter for hardly any cost. Truly a miracle worker this guy. And watching him work is a testament to his competence—he is so in the loop and connected to the right people that it seems he can make anything happen in just a 30 second phone call! And, because the little things matter with these types of services, this guy is worth supporting—the type of person to immediately bring you tea when you come to his office, to sit with you over lunch and share stories, and show you his endearing grin even while recalling intense moments in his life. Overall, definitely use this company for any travel/trekking needs, I will definitely connect with Janga the next time I am in Nepal!

I traveled with my 10 friends for this beautiful trek and for the first time going to the heights of 19500 feet. I was very happy to get this company and Mr Janga as our guide, who made this trek a wonderful experience for all of us. We had health related problems for two people in our group but they managed even helicopter rescue for them in places where there was almost no phone connectivity. They did everything as professionally and took personal care for everyone. Janga and his team were excellent and always ready to help with smiles. I am planning to send my son and his friends for this trek this year with them. Actually,, I met Mr Janga during my trek in Humla region to Kailash Mansarovar in 2013, where he was leading another group but helped my group though we had hired other agent and had some problems.

Out of the numerous treks that Firante offer, we opted to do the Three Passes. It was no easy feat, but under the fantastic guidance of Chhiring we completed it (albeit one pass due to very very snowy conditions)!! I think it is fair to say that without Firante, their guides, and organisation we would not have got as far as we did. The itinerary was expertly planned from the sites visible along the way, the guide’s local knowledge really shone here, through to the pacing of the whole adventure since the effects of altitude were soon noticed. Chhiring always made sure that our needs, especially of the stomach-variety, were seen to. Thanks to him every part of the tour ran smoothly :) Also, Janga made the whole booking process very easy - he was prompt at replying and answered any queries in full detail. We understood exactly what was included in the total price, and after completing the trek I can honestly say that it is excellent value for money. Victoria & Alistair

Janga and his team will provide you with a high level friendly service. We contacted Firante after seeing their recommendation in the Lonely Planet Guide and they exceeded our expectations in their initial response, their organisational ability and ultimately the trip.
