Owner description: The Managing Director and Funny Nepal Treks & Expeditions (P) Ltd.The name of the company might sound quite peculiar to our clients; however, let us delve into how the company received its name. Customers and clients who became up close with Mr. Dhamala started casually calling him "Fani"; and this became his "nickname" and since then the name has stuck - so, inorder to identify with the company he runs, the agency became "Funny Nepal Treks & Expeditions". Mr. Dhamala had humble beginnings as a porter which gradually saw him turn into a seasoned mountain guide and also Managing Director at the said agency; this he has been doing for the last 10 years.

I did three days hike around Kathmandu and its surrounding countryside with Funny Nepal and it turned out to be best choice for me, reliable, flexible and fun. My tour guide was Uttam, not only fantastic guide, with lot of knowledge about Nepal and its history, but also a wonderful person and now a good friend. He is great company, his English is fantastic, whole trip felt like spending time with friend, having conversations and laughing a lot. I was a solo traveller first time in Nepal, and thanks to Funny Nepal thoroughly enjoyed my trip. Thank you guys and looking forward to my next trip to Nepal and seeing you again!

I had the chance to take one of their trekking trips in 2011 and couldn't be more satisfied. Uttam, one of their tour guides, was very informative and friendly throughout our 2 day trek on Himalayas. I recommend this place to everyone!

My husband and I had decided to splurge for our 45th anniversary and trekking was not an option!
We contacted several companies by email and decided to use Funny Nepal treks because of Mr. Fanindra Dhamala always prompt and detailed answers to all our questions.Upon our arrival in Kathmandu we met Mr. Dhamala and he explained in details what the helicopter tour entails. For close to 4 hours we would fly first to Lukla then on to Everest base camp and after we would land at Mt Everest hotel for breakfast before returning to Kathmandu. Of course all that was weather permitting and we had a window of a few days. On the first day we were able to fly with perfect weather and no wind. Mr. Dhamala's young son came with us and he was the perfect companion for the trip. It was an unbelievable experience leaving the smog of Kathmandu behind and seeing the Himalayas come closer and closer. We loved every seconds of it. During our stop at the hotel we met a few locals and enjoyed coffee with Mt Everest right in front of us. We are seasoned world travelers but this was THE trip to remember! So ok: it is expensive but my husband and I can enthusiastically say that it was worth every cents. Thanks to Mr. Dhamala's attention to details we enjoyed the excursion of a lifetime.
Finally a word about altitude: we live all year around at 2500 meters and even though it is "baby mountain" compared to the Himalayas, this probably provided us with a rapid acclimatization and neither felt any negative effect. We have asked Mr. Dhamala to organize a few other tours (without helicopter unfortunately...) and we will report on those later. But after our experience with the helicopter ride we can recommend Funny Nepal Treks as an excellent company.
