Himalayan Planet

I'm thinking of booking my EBC trek with these guys as I really want to bypass the western booking vompanys and keep the money in Nepal.

Any reviews, anybody used them?

Thanks

Never used them and never heard of them (we use someone else)...but that isn't very strange. There are more than 1000 trekkings agencies in Nepal. Some of them are good and some are not that good. But you will never know until it is to late, unless you do good research (mail, call, meet your guide before passing any money).

Try to contact them, ask for itinerary, prices and conditions! The prices they state on their website sounds a little expenssive to me.

And do contact some other agencies too, so you have something to compare with.

I know what you mean about the prices but its an 18 day trek as opposed to the 15 days of most of the others and I would rather take longer going up.

The trek itself is just 16 days, the rest is sightseeing- and leissure days in Kathmandu. Anyway, if you are satisfied with the itinerary and the price, then I guess it is just a matter of human chemistry.....;-)

I have booked with them and will be starting my trek this Sunday. In my research and comunications with them they have been highly professional. They have quickly answered the 5,000 questions that I have sent them over the last 10 months. I am looking forward to meeting Rishi and his staff.

Just returned from a Langtang Trek with them. Have to say: Fantastic! Reliable, courteous, just worth this little more money they cost compared to others.
