Ahhh, where to even begin! We trekked the Manaslu Circuit with High Camp Trekking and the entire experience from booking the trek to the very last day was not only easy but enjoyable. When planning and booking the trek, Norsang Lama went above and beyond compared to other guide agencies that also gave me a quote. He created the most comprehensive itinerary outlining every detail. Furthermore, before I had even committed to using High Camp Trekking, Norsang showed me around Thamel directing me to the best gear stores! For the trek, we were guided by Sonjaya Lama, Norsang’s brother. Sonjaya Lama was a great guide and companion to have on the trail. He navigated the challenging trails gathering information from locals and other guides about trail closures and dangerous areas. With heavy monsoon rains and the changing of the seasons the trail does not always follow what is shown on paper or digital maps. Often times Sonjaya would use information from locals to detour around dangerous landslide areas, something we would not have been able to do alone. Sonjaya Lama also helped us connect with the place and people on a deeper level. He would share information about his religion and culture connecting it to what we were seeing and experiencing on the trail. When we stopped for lunch, reached our teahouse, or even passed a local on the trail, he would have conversations with other Nepalis and then share what he learned with us! Sonjaya Lama also showed adaptability during our trek; we were supposed to do a multi-day side trip into the Tsum Valley but active landslides in the area after Lokpha forced us to change our plans. We ended up spending more time on the main circuit taking day trips to the remote Pung Gyen Gompa and the Manaslu base camp amongst other places. After the trek finished, Sonjaya Lama knew that I would be in Kathmandu for another week and told me that I could reach out if I needed help with anything.

I would highly recommend using High Camp Trekking and if I ever do another trek in Nepal, I will absolutely be booking another guide through this agency.

It was my first trekking experience in Nepal. I wanted to complete Annapurna Circuit trail and Norsang, who was my guide and partner, did all the best to make this trip absolutely safe and unforgettable. He met me in Kathmandu after my arrival to agree on the details and two days later we started our two weeks adventure. It was not only a trekking, he gave me a huge lesson about the area, mountains and culture. His professionalism was at the highest level, he was organizing really nice guesthouses every day, giving me a nice daily briefing with many details, adjusting the walking pace according to my needs and abilities. He was always there when I needed him. I highly recommend him as a guide and I am so happy we meet each other. We had a really great time. Other than being a guide he is a wonderful trekking partner and friend who you can always talk to.

My friend and I did the Mardi Himal Base Camp trek with Norsang for 6 days from the 31 of May to the 4th of June 2022 and we loved it. The trek was hard for us but Norsang helped us a lot. The accommodation he chose was great, with good views and very good food. On the first day, I had a fall and hurt my hand he had a first-aid kit and he treated my wound. very attentive at all times.

On the second day of the trek, my friend got sick and he couldn’t continue. After thinking about what to do, we decided that he would wait for me at the low camp, and Norsang and I would continue the trek until the end. Norsang talked to the man who run one of the lodgings in the low camp to take care of him, and he did it.

I did the rest of the trek alone with him and I felt very safe. It was a wonderful experience. He is a guide prepared both physically and psychologically. He adapted to us at every moment, we changed the dates of the trek at the last moment and he had no problem with the change. He explained a lot about the local culture, he took us to beautiful places that without him we would never have been able to know.

I recommend him, my experience was perfect.

I would like to come back to Nepal and do the Everest base camp trek and I will not hesitate to do it with him.

Thank you for everything Norsang, we hope to see you again very soon.

Take care!

We did the Everest Base camp trek with Norsang. He is really professional, he knows all the villages and told us many things about the tradition and the religion of Nepal.We learned many stories about the mountains, the villages and the yeti (you can see see the scalp in a monastery !).

The trek is just amazing, you can see most of the highest mountains of Himalaya. We slept in really nice lodges, and the food was always really good.

We did some other small trek with him or his brother, organisation always perfect.

I highly recommend them 👍🏻

Thanks again for this experience 🙏🏻

I did a trekking trip with Norsang in September ‘18 to EBC and Gokyo Lakes. It was a spectacular trip and ran very smoothly thanks to guide Norsang.

Norsang was both professional and caring, and ensured that all precautions against altitude sickness were taken. He was encouraging, but did not push the group so hard that we were ever exhausted. He teamed us with a very good porter, Passian, who also went out of his way to assist with the trip.

I liked the fact the High Camp Trekking is a family run business, that the trips are competitively priced and that the company is trustworthy and quick and clear in their communications.

If I return to Nepal I would definitely trek with a Norsang again.

My daughter and I had the pleasure of treking the Anaperna Circuit in July 2018 for 14 days with Norsang as our guide and Sundep as our porter. We experienced amazing professionalism and attention to our welfare by the High camp team. The trek was taylor made for us and included a side trip to Tilicho Lake. We did not experience any issues with altitude as we were thoroughly prepared by Norsang on the trek. His knowledge and communication skills were excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending High Camp Treking in every respect.

I had a great experience with Samden and Birendra on the ABC trek. These guys are great guys, friendly, humble, honest, and very polite. I have travelled though out the world quite a bit and was a bit skeptical of the whole " tour/guide " thing, not sure what to expect. But i had a great tie with these guys, they looked out for me, were social, yet gave me space and went at my own pace. I would recommended them to anyone without a doubt. Thanks again

My partner, a friend and I did the Annapurna Sanctuary trek with High Camp Trekking. We had an incredible time and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I had already received a few quotes from other companies when a friend of mine, Imogen, recommended Norsang to me. I contacted him with our itinerary and he replied very quickly with a quote and some helpful suggestions for our plans. I originally asked for a 'guide only' quote to save on our budget, which Norsang provided. He also gave us a very reasonable quote for a package, including all our transport, food and accommodation once on the trek. I'm really glad he did, because that is what we did and it worked out brilliantly. The transport was hassle-free and comfortable (Sanjay, our guide, even escorted us from the hotel to our bus), Sanjay always chose the lodges with the best views, we were free to choose what we liked from the menus, and not having the stress of negotiating prices at the end of each day's trekking was a relief. Sanjay, Norsang's brother, was a great guide. A really nice guy who was able to tell us all about the villages we passed through. He somehow managed to anticipate all our needs before we had even thought of them! He ensured that we were really well looked after, happy and comfortable throughout the whole trek. After we had spent an extra couple of days in Pokhara, Sanjay even met us off the bus back in Kathmandu and escorted us to our hotel. Our two porters, Maila and Rajendra, also family members, were also really nice - and very strong! The trek itself was stunning. A beautiful contrast between the jungle paths and traditional Gurung villages and the towering snow-capped peaks of the Annapurna range. The highlight was reaching the Annapurna Base Camp, alongside a huge glacier and being surrounded by incredible peaks all around. A truly unforgettable experience.

We engaged High Camp Trekking twice in May 2013 and May 2014.

Norsang Lama replied to our questions and doubts via emails very promptly.

He was also our trekking guide for both trips; Poon Hill and Everest base camp.

He took great care of us when we were in Nepal; from the moment we met him at the airport till we stepped foot into the airport to return home!

On trekking days, he ensured that there’s tea houses for the nights, sufficient meals, hot water for baths and look out for our safety. He checked on our health status every morning before we start the day. He will tell us the culture of the villages, mountains, flowers, animals we see along the way. We were trekking at our pace and he motivated us when we were feeling lousy.

On days that we were in the cities, he went extra mile to be our city guide.

We will definitely engage High Camp Trekking the next time.

Thumbs up to High Camp Trekking and Norsang Lama!

We had a wonderful time in Nepal with Norsang Lama as a guide and Viren as a porter. Initially we were supposed to go to Everest side and because of bad w poeather conditions we couldn't fly to Lukla. Since our timing was tight, he offered to do an alternative trek in the Annapurna : Mardi Himal. He organized everything in few hours and we were able to depart to Pokhara the day after. During all the trek, Norsang made sure that we had a room in all the tea house, adjusted the pace to ours, took care of us and shared his 20 years experience of the mountain and his knowledge of Nepal with us.
We particularly appreciated that he adjusted the program on the spot. Since we could finish a bit earlier the Mardi Himal trek, he added additional stay and visit in Pokhara : we could enjoy the stunning panoramic view from the uphill stupa!
So if you want to have an amazing experience in the Nepal mountains, do not hesitate to contact Norsang.
