We only had a few days of holiday so we decided to go to Gosaikunda starting in Dhunche. Everything has been taken care of by Vishnu and Ram, they booked the Jeep, arranged all the trekking permits, etc. The communication before the trek was perfect and they responded to all questions very quickly via WhatsApp (organisation, equipment, etc.) As we went up to Gosaikunda faster than expected, we even got the chance to take another, longer, route down to the town of Syabru Bensi. Even if this wasn’t the original plan, Ram still managed to get us accommodation and a way back to Dhunche. We were able to witness incredible views of the different mountain ranges and had perfect weather throughout the trek. During the Trek, Ram answered all the questions we could have about the peaks and mountains we were seeing, or about the local culture or food. He was an amazing guide! If you ever consider doing some trekking in Nepal and don’t have the time or the confidence to plan, I sincerely suggest that you go with Nepal Hiking Adventure Company and that you’ll have Ram as your guide.

Its been a year since I left for the Everest 3 High Passes. From the moment I contacted Bishnu to the moment I left Nepal, I was made to feel welcome and safe! Starting out on this trip, I don't think anyone could have predicted that the world would collapse around us into a Global Pandemic. I landed in Kathmandu for yet another trek and seeking more adventure (an avid trekker and a lover of the Himalayas). I was met with a warm welcome by the boys! Bad weather meant the flight into Lukla was delayed a few days, but I was welcomed into Bishnu's family for his son's Bratabandha ceremony along with another Aussie Trekker, where we were fed and watered (might have been a few stiff drinks on the side) and a whole lot of dancing. Initially there was to be a group of us heading out on this trek, but the world had other plans, so I was dropped off at the airport by Ram at the crack of dawn to meet my guide, Kamal, when I landed in Lukla. And we were OFF! A solo female traveller and her trusty guide on our mighty adventure. I was made to feel safe throughout the entire trek, well fed and warm. Kamal didn't beat around the bush and made sure I was able to experience new things as it wasn't my first time on the Everest Trail and took me off the beaten track to see new things. The weather gods were not on our side at all this trek, with some intense snowfall which hampered the trails over Kong Ma La and Renjo La. However, my other goal was to watch the sun rise over Kala Patthar - something I had missed out on 12 years ago when I first visited EBC. And Mother Nature did not disappoint! What a bloody spectacular view - one that will pull at your heart and soul in the bitter -25 temps! Cho La was equally spectacular and the hike into Gokyo STUNNING! Where you can boast about crossing the worlds longest moving glacier - the Ngozumpa Glacier. Don't forget to soak up every moment - when you think you can't do any more, DO THE MORE! I have one regret of not heading up Gokyo Ri - thinking I would have an amazing view the next day crossing Renjo La - but snow got the better of us and we had to turn around. Now, at this point, no one had any idea about the outside world imploding - we even contemplated staying an extra night up high to see if the snow storms would pass. But someone said it was sticking around, and the further down we went - the more info we got about the rest of the world. As the information slowly started to filter in - our slow walk down the mountain turned into a run (Actual running....and my knees do not recommend it) as we desperately tried to beat international airport closures. We thankfully made it back to Kathmandu but sadly the PM sent us into a hard lock down 3 hours after we landed, beginning a whole new adventure. Bishnu and Kamal kept in touch during the lockdown to make sure I was safe and had access to everything I needed. And even on return to Australia, the messages kept coming in to see if I was OK. I honestly couldn't recommend these guys highly enough. Bishnu treats his team with respect and runs a solid company. The whole team are knowledgeable and fun, and whilst sad at missing out on 2 of the 3 passes, I am so glad I got to meet the people I did and to experience this with them.

My partner and I booked the Khopra Danda trek in mid March. Before arriving in Nepal, Bisnhu was excellent at communicating with us; often responding on the same day (depending on time zones). We were able to organise trekking poles and sleeping bags through him, which was convenient. Ram (our guide) met us at the airport and had arranged transport to our hotel in Kathmandu, where we met Bishnu and settled the outstanding balance of the trip. Everything was smooth. Bishnu accepted either cash or card (3 % bank charge for card). Conversion from USD to NPR was very transparent, by using the rate on the day. From day 2, Ram managed everything effectively (logistics, accommodation, admin, and navigation). Ram as a guide was very friendly without being overbearing. This made for a relaxing and enjoyable experience. With the Covid-19 situation bubbling, Ram even offered for us to stay at his family village if we had any issues, which was very kind. The trek itself starts off on a more touristy part of the circuit up to Ghorepani (Poon Hill), before you go off the beaten path. This mix allows you to ease into the trekking lifestyle after a long flight, with the first few nights spent in more hotel-like accommodation. After Ghorepani until Tadapani, the accommodation does become a lot more basic (due to limited options), but the views and experience are even more exceptional. Worth noting that all accommodation in the mountains is basic compared to the cities. It's the nature of trekking, not a reflection on the tour quality. The 'Trip Grade' is marked as easy; however this is dependent on the conditions. We were challenged by some unseasonable levels of snow (waist high in places), which meant that there were some difficult, but rewarding sections of the trek. If you're not experienced or comfortable when things get a little sketchy, I recommend going later in the season. Ram was fairly 'hands off' with us over these sections, but we are quite experienced and were comfortable with the terrain, so this was our preference. If we weren't, I'm positive he'd help at any step of the way. Bishnu had planned to meet us for dinner when we returned to Kathmandu, as we arranged to stay in Pokhara after the trek. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 situation this wasn't possible, but this evidences the high quality of customer service that Bishnu, Ram, and the rest of the team aim to deliver. When we inevitably return to Nepal, we'll be using Nepal Hiking Adventure Company for any guided trips/treks.

I signed up to trek the Annapurna Circuit and Everest Base Camp with Nepal Hiking Adventure and got a whole lot more than I bargained for! I had mentioned to Bishnu my interest in experiencing the real Nepal and the local culture... he delivered in spades. Within days of my arrival in the country, Bishnu invited me to his private home to attend a personal 2 day ceremony for his son! It was a wonderful experience and it gave me an insight into how much Bishnu is willing to offer his clients, as well as how beautiful and unique the Nepali culture is! Before arriving in Nepal, I had issues making a credit card payment from Australia. Bishnu was fantastic, he was happy for me to arrive in Kathmandu without paying a deposit, he still picked me up from the airport and transferred me to a hotel he'd organized, including free breakfast. It was about 4 days later that (at my suggestion), I made payment. Following a few days in Kathmandu including a 1 day city tour organized by Bishnu (5 stars) and the wonderful private ceremony (priceless), I was picked up by my guide, Raaz and we headed off to trek the Annapurna Circuit. At first, it was just he and I, very private and enjoyable. We got to know each other well after a couple of days, The Trekking Brothers we called ourselves, taking many selfies.. we came across a lovely Dutch couple with their guide on day 4 and, sensing a positive group dynamic Raaz asked us if we'd like to stay together as a group, which was more enjoyable for all of us. Raaz could speak fluent Nepali with Shantos and Nitre, (the couple's guide and porter) and I could get to know the couple from the Netherlands. As clients, we were all treated to the knowledge of 2 guides, not to mention we all played cards together at night time. When it became apparent that a storm was blowing in behind us, Raaz and Shantos had a discussion, then brought it to the group that if we wanted to complete the trek, we needed to hurry up our schedule, skip an acclimatization day and risk sickness, due to impending snowfall. As a group, we discussed the risks and decided we wanted to push forward, giving us a chance to achieve our dreams, even with the increased risk of altitude sickness. Raaz regularly checked in with me, asking how much water I was drinking, checking my recovery times and how I was feeling. As well as monitoring how much I was eating, my moods and using an oximeter to monitor my blood oxygen level. I felt completely safe at all times, knowing that Raaz was looking after me and that if it was in my best interest, he would have turned me around. We completed Thorung-La pass and celebrated together afterwards! The Annapurna trek with Nepal Hiking Adventure and Raaz was a spectacular experience that I would recommend to anybody. As for the Everest Base Camp Trek? Google Covid-19 and you'll have an idea as to the unfortunate reason I had to cancel the trek. Once again, Bishnu and Raaz were outstanding in assisting me with canceling the trek and rescheduling my flights back to Australia. Thanks to their help, I managed to get on my airline's last flight out of Nepal and return to Australia. I look forward to my return to Nepal and emailing Bishnu to let him know I would love to book in an Everest Base Camp trek with his company, as soon as this pandemic is resolved. Thanks Bishnu, Ram and Raaz. I loved my experience in Nepal, particularly the ceremony at your private residence. All the best with your families. Raaz, I hope you enjoy some family time and get the chicken farm up and running! Kind Regards, Cam McPherson @camcam_the_fireman
