Mountain Sherpa Trekking and Expeditions (MSTE) is owned and managed by three brothers. They were always reliable and on time in picking us up and did some extra transfers/side trips that were not part of our package. Our small group booked the Three (High) Pass Loop plus climbs of Lobuche East and Island Peak. Booking flights from KTM to Lukla is challenging and not always reliable. MSTE worked hard to secure direct flights for us, and when our flight was canceled due to a mechanical problem, they were able to quickly negotiate a helicopter into Lukla so there was no interruption in our schedule. The trek and climbs went as planned, with an excellent guide staff accompanying us. Our assistant guide and porter, Mingmar Sherpa was exceptional and always went out of his way to help us. Upon our return to Kathmandu, we had the chance to meet more of the brother's family, which made the experience even more personable. Pre-trip communication in English was always expedient and understandable. This is my second trip booked with MSTE (the first was Annapurna Circuit in 2010) and I hope to have the opportunity to book another trip with them in the future.

We were 3 days into the Manaslu Circuit trek when rockslides caused by unseasonable monsoons made the trail impassable. I was amazed at how quickly an alternate plan was put into place and executed. We switched to Annapurna Sanctuary and MSTE was able to get a private van for the next day. Others we met on Manaslu weren't so fortunate. Our guides were knowledgeable, professional, accommodating and pleasant throughout. It wasn't the trek we expected but thanks to MSTE it was the best it could be. Also of note, the pre-trip planning/communication, KTM airport transfers etc all went smoothly. I highly recommend MTSE.

We booked our Annapurna Sanctuary trip with MSTE over 3 years ago, and they were so flexible in allowing us to defer the trip every year throughout the pandemic. Pasang Sherpa was more than happy to provide us with a bespoke itinerary based on their standard Annapurna Sanctuary trek and happily answered our many questions during the early stages of planning it.

The trip itself was fantastic. MSTE really look after their clients. From the moment we arrived on Kathmandu the team made sure everything ran smoothly. Our guide, Lal and porter Inra were brilliant on the trek, making sure we got the best tea house accommodation where available (despite the route being busier than usual because of trekkers being transferred in from the Annapurna Circuit, Manaslu Circuit and EBC due to poor weather conditions and landslides in those areas). Lal took our food orders every day and ensured we got our food quickly. Lal's knowledge of the area was great and he was always happy to answer our questions along the way. Too many highlights to mention on the trek, but the dawn views from Poon Hill and reaching Annapurna Base Camp were top moments.

The hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara were very comfortable and all the transfer logistics worked well. We met Tandi Sherpa and Pasang Sherpa during our time in Kathmandu; both are lovely people who only want the best for their clients.

We loved the trip so much we have already contacted Pasang Sherpa for a bespoke itinerary for another trek - possibly in 2024.

We would highly recommend MSTE for trekking in Nepal - they really go the extra mile to make your trek the best experience.

Thank you to all the MSTE team for a great trip!

My trip was all that I had dreamed about. Everyone at Mountain Sherpa Trekking was extremely helpful and professional. The itinerary, lodging, transportation, etc were well planned and efficient. My guide (Ming-Ma Aprehs) was knowledgeable, always pleasant and supportive, and for a bonus would airdrop me fabulous pictures that he had taken during the day. By the end of the adventure I had made a good friend.

I just completed my 3rd Himalayan trek with Mountain Sherpa, the Annapurna circuit and Thorong La pass. At age 66 I did have some trepidation about such an undertaking. The guide and porter were outstanding, which was the same experience on my previous 2 treks with Mountain Sherpa. They were always so solicitous of my comfort and well-being! I lacked for nothing. Thank you so much, Mountain Sherpa, I will keep coming back as long as i can still get up the hill ;-)

Our group ascended and skied Mera Peak over a two week trip duration. The entire staff from the admin staff, guide, and porters continually impressed throughout the trip. They blew away all of our expectations! Professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and eager to share the wonders of Nepal with us‐‐I would gladly hire Mountain Sherpa Climbing Expeditions again!

Mountain Sherpa Trekking took us on an unforgettable trip to summit and ski down Mera Peak. They were extremely professional, took care of everything and made it such an easy and wonderful experience! Our guide was IFMGA certified and top notch! He gave us such an amazing local experience, taught us a lot about Nepali and Sherpa culture, and was a key reason that we were the only group to summit on our summit day! Very detailed and professional company and would enjoy working with them again in the future.

We booked a 14 Nights/ 15 days Everest base camp trek organized by Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions. The entire experience was just so wonderful and hassle free.

Local Guides – Our Sherpa Guide Mr. Rinji Sherpa was so expert, reliable and open. He made the complete trekking experience great! He was always around and also helps us to arrange various activities to make the journey more exciting.

Arrangements - The trek was extremely organized initial from the trip briefing a day before we fly to lukla airport to the end of the expeditions. We had a briefing meeting in our hotel in Kathmandu where we were given a trek briefing of whole itinerary. We were also given duffle bags and good quality sleeping bags for the trek. Every small detail was thought of. After the trek, Sumba provided us very special one-hour ayurvedic massage, which was truly impeccable after the long hiking efforts.

Food - The food on the trek was just delicious up there. Our guide Rinji make sure that we have enough food during whole trek. Every meals prepared in Local Sherpa lodge was well cooked and hygiene. From breakfast to the dinner, food was always good on the trip! We had our breakfast and dinner at the same lodge where we stay in overnight. The food is simple, but really very good, and the most important is our guide Rinji Sherpa provide us sufficient food to eat as per our choice.

Accommodation – During the whole trek most of the rooms were clean, the dining room was heated well in the evening except few places in the higher altitude. We got even take a hot shower and buy Wi-Fi. We were very happy with the sleeping bags and the down jackets we borrowed from Mountain Sherpa Trekking.

Lastly and the most essential, huge thanks to the porter who made this expedition so successful!! Our porter was so dedicated and hard working that we cannot thank him enough!!

We highly recommend Mountain Sherpa trekking & expeditions for doing the Everest Base Camp Trek. Mr. Tandi Sherpa, Mr. Pasang Sherpa, our guide Mr. Rinji Sherpa and the porter was perfect and very helpful. Their service was mind-blowing!!

This is my second trek with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions, and both experiences were excellent. My guide was a godsend, to get to the trailhead I had to navigate to far eastern Nepal by minibus and jeep, and he was with me every step of the way. The porter was local to the area and had a great attitude. Both guide and porter were steeped in regional knowledge and made this trek a real cultural experience. I honestly have no reason to work with any other trekking company in the Himalayas, a place I plan to return to as often as possible.
