Mr Happy and our guide (Din Esh) made our trekking experience more than we could have hoped for. I cannot recommend them highly enough. We found Mr Happy on Trip Advisor a few years ago and he kept in touch throughout the pandemic until we were finally able to come to Nepal. The price we paid was fair but more than anything, they just seemed happy to be welcoming people back to Nepal.

We were picked up at the airport and given a warm welcome by Mr Happy in Pokhara. We were driven to his nearby office for a beer and an overview of our upcoming excursion. The route was clarified and there was plenty of time to go through any questions we had in relation to kit, accommodation etc.

We started the trek the following day. We had limited time in Nepal and really wanted to go paragliding so Mr Happy arranged this for us as well as a pick up from the landing spot to bring us back to his office ready to start the trek.

Our guide on the trail was Din Esh who was fantastic from start to finish. He struck the perfect balance between informing us of the local surroundings and making us laugh to help raise our morale during some of the steeper sections of the trail. He took photos of us on his phone and would send them to me on Facebook after each day which meant we got some lovely photos of us together.

Whilst the weather was unfortunately hazy on some of the days, Din Esh made sure to wake us early in the morning before sunrise to allow us the best opportunity to catch a glimpse of Annapurna South and Fishtail. In the evenings he told us funny stories and kept us entertained, we honestly couldn’t have asked for more from our guide- thank you so much Din Esh!

After the trek we were invited to Mr Happy’s house where he cooked us a delicious Nepalese dinner for which was wonderful. We feel so lucky to have met such wonderful and hospitable people.

Happy Treks, in our experience, is a fantastic company which obviously knows it’s business. However, as with any business, it is the strength of the people which matters. We feel fortunate to have met the team at Happy Treks and hope to visit again in future years.

On a final note, when we were leaving Pokhara we had a lot of problems with delayed flights and Mr Happy and Din Esh personally came to the airport to help sort alternative transportation back to Kathmandu. They were so patient and waited around to make sure we either got on a flight or that we had a van to take us.

We went on a 5 days trek to Poon Hill with the amazing guide Dinesh, who was fantastic ! Prior to our arrival, the organization orchestrated by Mr Happy was very smooth and reassuring. He responded very promptly to any questions we could have, send us a list of items we should bring to be best prepared, he described every steps of the trek to make sure it would fit what we like and we were received with a very nice welcome at our arrival at Pokhara.

But what made the trek exceptionally enjoyable and perfect is our guide, Dinesh !
His contagious smile and good mood, his relaxed vibe and very good knowledge of the mountains and Nepalese culture and history made this five days fly by (we would have loved prolonging this short week !). He knew every best tea houses to stay at, made sure we had the rooms with the best views, private bathroom when possible, and made us discover culinary delicacies as often as possible (for our greatest pleasure)!

He took really great care of us, made sure that we were happy every step of the way, and created a good balance between shared moments and alone time to enjoy quietly the roads and the views ! We couldn’t dream of a better trek, let alone a better guide !!!

We are coming back from this trip with a lot of happy memories, breathtaking sceneries and landscapes in mind but most of all really nice evenings spent sharing stories and experiences which were eye opening and a view on the life in Nepal we can’t see as a tourist staying for only two weeks.

We were incredibly lucky with the weather since the sky was clear every morning, allowing us to enjoy with our amazed eyes the views on the mountains (thanks to Dinesh’s secret way of clearing the sky)!

We would HIGHLY recommend you Happy Treks Nepal : you’ll have a relaxing, safe, worriless time, just have to enjoy the views and the snacks !
But more importantly, if you can plan the trek with Dinesh as guide, you’ll have the cherry on the cake !

We booked a 5 day Poon Hill hike with Happy Treks Nepal upon recommendation from two separate groups of friends who had both used their services previously and been very pleased.

Mr Happy was very organised and prompt with all his email replies. He made the booking process seamless and kept up good communication when arranging our transfers from Kathmandu to Pokhara. His service was both friendly and professional.

Ram was our guide for the Poon Hill trek, both sets of my friends who previously used Happy Treks had also used Ram as their guide and they couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Ram was friendly and personable from the start. On the first day of our trek I was quite unwell, Ram was extremely patient and never made me feel like a burden on the group. Without his encouragement I possibly wouldn’t have continued the trek but I’m so glad I did. Having Ram as our guide improved our experience significantly, his knowledge of the area and the mountains was fantastic. He always seemed to secure the best tea houses and knew when to push us to walk an extra 10 minutes to get a better lunch spot with a fantastic view.

Krishna and Savokor were our porters. They were superhuman. The trek was challenging and these guys did it with our back packs on. Not only were they a massive help carrying our luggage they were both very friendly, attentive and never stopped smiling. After a days hiking it was nice to sit with a cup of tea and learn more about their Indian and Nepali culture.

We also had a couple of jeep transfers between Kathmandu to Pokhara then later on to Chitwan. Madhu was our driver both times. He was possibly the most relaxed person on the road in Nepal, never going overly fast or breaking harshly. He somehow made the terrible roads in Nepal bearable and got us to our destinations safely and on time.

I’m really glad that we trusted Happy Treks with our tour, they took all the stress out of organising our trek and allowed us to enjoy our much needed holiday. I would highly recommend them to anyone visiting Nepal.

Mr Happy was quick and prompt in his replies, he helped adjusted the itinerary to match my conditions. The trek was really great, varied terrains and difficulties. Prem was my guide, he was helpful and a funny guy! He also shared stories about the culture in Nepal and making jokes. Had fun playing cards with him too. And he's also a tiktok celeb ;)

We have just returned from our 5 day Poon Hill trek with Happy Treks. It was a once in a lifetime experience to see the Himalayas from several viewing points, not only Poon Hill. Mr Happy made it very easy to organise and was very quick to respond.

What made the experience so amazing for us was our guide Dinesh and porter Prim. Dinesh is such a wonderful person, he made us feel relaxed, always safe and we had many a laugh along the way. Both Dinesh and Prim were extremely attentive and did absolutely everything for us with Dinesh being photographer, chef, guide, comedian and Nepali cultural expert!

I’m not a regular trekker by any means so was a little nervous before the trek - overall I found the trek to be moderate with only a couple of moments I personally found a little challenging but Dinesh was so supportive and patient that it made me feel completely at ease. It’s even given me more confidence to do a longer trek in future!

All the tea houses were great and we were lucky to be treated with clear skies and uninterrupted views of the mountains. A completely unforgettable experience that exceeded our expectations. Everyone should do this at least once in their lifetime! Would 100% recommend Happy Treks and couldn’t recommend Dinesh enough as your guide!

Mr Happy provides an excellent service from start to finish. We contacted him 2 days before we wanted to do the Mardi Himal trek and he responded right away offering a brilliant price. Aside from the logistics, he is just so kind and generous.
Prem, our guide, could not have been better. He went above and beyond for us while also being so much fun - from educating us about Nepali culture and the Himalayas, to playing cards and dancing. We will miss him very much!
The Mardi Himal trek was stunning and the experience made easy and very enjoyable by Mr Happy and Prem’s hospitality. It was the highlight of my trip to Nepal!

Friend of mine live in USA offer a trek , then we all seat and discuss then we decide that we will trek with Happy Treks Nepal , because few year ago I took my first trek with them and it was great experience and I was believed that we will have a another great trek with a team of Mr Happy and we went their office at lakeside, street no 16 then we have meet Mr Happy, as I live in pokhara I have seen him very often but after my first trek I haven't stop that much at their office but this time I went with my friend and we have talk with him and he gave us a good deal as my friend live in USA offer us this trip and we were looking for better rate and Mr Happy offer us affordable price so we decide to book out trek with Happy trek, then we decide to do one day hike to kaskikot kalika temple and 4 days poon hill.
Mr Happy send Mr Ram as our guide and he was so nice and tell us a lot about mountai , we all are young boys but he was always allowed us what we want to do and he was so nice to enjoying with us and lessening our crazy song
We had absolutely amazing time with him .
I like to recommend everyone who want to trek from pokhara better to choose Happy Treks Nepal.
We are planning another trek with Happy Treks Nepal in Coming Dashain holiday .
Thank you team Happy Treks Nepal for this great memory .

We had a fantastic time trekking Poon Hill with Happy Treks. Mr Happy was great at organising the trek for us, meeting us at the bus stop and explaining everything we were going to do and needed to bring. He suggested doing the trek anti-clockwise as there was a lot of ice on the track and this would be very difficult to descend on, and I'm so glad he suggested it! Mr Happy even went the extra mile for us lending us a lot of gear as we had just done 2 years in Australia and wasn't exactly prepared for the trip. Our guide Dinesh was wonderful, he spoke excellent English and gave us lots of information on the himalayas, and Nepali culture, it was like trekking with a friend. The tea houses were also very welcoming and the food was really good. I highly recommend doing a trek with Happy treks, Mr Happy (a trekker himself) really does know how to organise the best trip!

I had an absolutely brilliant experience with Happy Treks, I really cannot recommend them more! This Pokhara company are professional, friendly, personal and the guides are just outstanding.

Mr Happy, who is such a kind man, went above and beyond to help me taylor my hike to fit in with my short holiday in Nepal. He helped with everything from choosing the route based on my ability and what I liked to helping me hire equipment and airport pickups. I am a female solo traveler so was a little nervous at first. However, there was no need to be nervous because I was looked after so well, felt really safe and comfortable. Mr Happy also introduced me to a small group of other trekkers, who I ended up hiking with during the first 3 days, which worked out so well!!

The trek itself was beautiful especially the days trekking through the rhododendron forest. JB was the best guide I could have asked for. He was knowledgeable, professional, had excellent English and is such a nice man to chat to! He instinctively knew how fast to trek.. I like to walk quite slowly and take in the views and I never once felt hurried. On the other hand, when the trek got tough, he was just the right amount of encouraging.

I really recommend Happy Treks - the service is so personal and the guides really are brilliant. I especially recommend JB as a guide! You will have the best experience and come away having made friends!

We did a day hike/trek and a full day of sightseeing with Happy Treks with Ram as our guide. Mr. Happy was able to customise things based on weather and our families needs. Pricing was very reasonable compared with prices posted by other trekking companies for similar activities. Everything from the taxi service to lunches, snacks and extra water was taken are of. Ram was very knowledgeable and friendly and his English was easily understood. We saw and learned so much! Thank you to the Happy Trek team for being so accommodating of our families needs! Would definitely book activities with Happy Treks again!👍😃🙏
