I booked a group trek with 3 sisters and highly recommend the company to you. My main reason to choose the company was the benefits for Nepali women. I liked that the company supports women’s employment in Nepal (80% of the guides and assistants are female and the company is owned by women). During the trek I also realized that the working conditions for the assistants are much better than in a lot of other trekking companies: The maximum weight female assistants are allowed to carry is 10kg (male assistants are allowed to carry 2 kilograms more). On our trek we saw lot of other company’s assistants carrying (in our opinion) way too much baggage so I was happy with my choice. The trek was very well organized and I felt very safe - especially in unpredicted situations. Here is two examples: Our group started with the ABC trek. On the trek our guide informed us about an avelange danger and recommended to spontaneously change the route. We all agreed an changed the trek to the Mardi Himal trek. In my opinion safety is the most important concern and our guide was at all times very well informed about whether conditions and other important things to know. Then the very special event of Corona virus occurred. The last day of our trek we got the information that all hotels in Pokhara were closed. Immediately our guide offered us to stay with her (family) in case we cannot find other accommodation. She really meant this and we ended up staying 4 days with her and her family. This was so friendly and much more than I expect from a guide! After returning to Pokhara the 3sisters office helped us A LOT with our return to Kathmandu which was very easy. Also this was way more than I expect from a trekking company - since the trek was over they did not have to care about us but they did so much. Thank you so much for everything, 3sisters, especially to Nicky, Mana, Abi, Jamuna, Yesoda, Rijin & Puja. I’ll be back!!

Had an over-the-top trip of a lifetime with 3 Sisters. They were highly professional from my very first inquiry to the planning, orientation and actual trek. Our guide, Mana, and the assistants, Sonu and Indra, kept us smiling, laughing and singing even as we climbed endless steps. When I had to cancel my second trek due to the Coronavirus situation, they quickly refunded my money and were completely supportive of my choice, even though it hurt them financially. I have the greatest respect for the work they do and strongly recommend this company to anyone who goes trekking in Nepal. I will be back for sure - Annapurna Base Camp still awaits.

A brilliant tour to the sunset with a guide ( Cecil) who knows so much. It was worth getting up so early.

Me and my sister hiked for 8 days with 3 sisters on a combination of the mardi himal poon hill trek. The communication before the trek was excellent and Nicky was really patient with our many questions and gave us lots of help organising our trip, including booking our bus tickets to pokhara. In terms of our hiking guide - Indra Kala Rai - we can't recommend her enough! I am a hiking guide in Europe and have hiked none-guided in Nepal before. However, I wanted to take a guide with us on this trip in order to learn more about Nepali culture and the local environment and it was the best decision we could have made. We learned so much from Indra about life in Nepal, its customs and the local mountains. We both came away with a much deeper understanding of Nepal and feeling like we had made a good friend. Indra's pace was perfect and she looked after us in many small ways that didnt go unnoticed - including ensuring we always had a nice room in the tea houses and checking on us regularly during the hike to make sure we were happy and scheduling in regular stops for tea and lunch. She struck the perfect balance of chatting to us and giving us space to ourselves. While I saw some other hiking guides on the trek walking well ahead of their guests and looking uninterested and bored, Indra was always right with us setting a great pace, helping out on tricky sections and teaching us about the local flora and fauna. While I was in pokhara I alsp had the pleasure to sit in on an english language class for the trainee guides. 3 sisters are doing an incredible job, alongside the NGO 'empowering women of Nepal' to help train more women to become guides so that they can become independent. They are a fantastic company and i would highly recommend them. Thank you so much for making this trip to Nepal so special! See you soon Indra! Jen

As a group of young women ourselves, we were initially very excited to support a female-led organization. However, the experience was very disappointing. We were a group of 4 women with a guide and 4 assistant guides or porters. The guide and porters were very young and inexperienced - some had never trekked before and were not physically strong enough to carry the bags. The guide did not share any information about the culture, nature or history - even when prompted. At one point we got lost, having passed the town we were supposed to sleep in that night and ended up sleeping in a different town all together. These young women were not set up for success: the guide was not provided with the training and mentoring she needed to be effective; basic, adequate equipment was not provided (e.g., no first aid kit, the backpacks given to the assistant guides were oversized and broken), etc. This company is significantly more expensive than other trekking companies and my assumption was this was due to additional training needed for the female guides. This doesn't appear to be the case. I would not recommend traveling with them.
