Owner description: Treks, Expeditions, Tours and Mountain Biking in NEPAL, TIBET, BHUTAN & INDIA since 1998. We offer competitively priced trips to a set of destinations which we know well. Well resourced in the field but not heavily marketed, these trips are fantastic mix of expert guides, good itineraries, good logistics and a great crew of people.

I thought the hotel was excellent due to its friendly staff, immaculate rooms and great food. The hotel is based in a busy, thriving market area of Kathmandu filled with amazing restaurants that sell great food for reasonably low prices. When i return to Nepal on another expedition i will defiantly be staying at this hotel and use Makalu adventure day tours to organist it.

Once again I have utilized the talents of Makalu Adventure to trek in Nepal.
On this occasion together with two friends we visited the remote, resticted Upper Mustang region.
We enjoyed the company of one guide, a cook, two helpers and a pony man.
We followed the normal route to the fabled walled city of Lo Mangthan where we rested for a couple of days.
We then decided to go ‘off the beaten track’. Heading east we visited the remote Tashi Kabum cave complex as well as Luri Gompa.
After this we headed south and enjoyed some truly spectacular scenery. The landscape was truly lunar and the rock formations were fantastic. A couple of days would be considered hard, and included a couple of 1000m ascents.
Our little party enjoyed some truly spectacular campsites. At this stage of the trek we saw no other westerners.
At all times our crew took exceptional care of us and the variety of food that our cook produced was exceptional.
In short, Makalu Adventure once again proved to be setting the standards that other companies should aspire to.

Completed the Everest BC + Gokyo Pass trek in Oct 2012. Makalu Adventures did an outstanding job of planning the entire trip allowing me to enjoy mine time and not worry about any of the logistics or planning. The company does an excellent job of keeping me informed through email, details about the trip, answering all of my questions and finally delivering on all of their commitments 100%. I would use Makalu Adventures in the future for my trips in Nepal and Tibet. Thank you for all of your hard work to make this a trip of a lifetime and a great experience.

Having just returned from three weeks' cycling around the Annapurnas, i am still thrilled. Apart from the fantastic landscape and and people as well as the very interesting cultural insights i very much appreciated the professional and good-value organization of our customized trip by Makalu Adventure. Being recommended by friends who had previously done the Lhasa-Kathmandu bike tour it was a safe bet. Especially the attentive and caring guiding by Kalden Sherpa(who may not be a man of many words but masters the economic humour) needs mentioning. I definitely will come back to Nepal and i will definitely travel again with this company. Cheers, Gabriel

Three of us did the cycle trip in Sep 2012. Mohan (Makalu Adventure) helped us to customize the trip to 16 days. He is very knowledgable and responded to my emails of question rapidly. We were very happy with all the arrangements before and during our trip.
The Tibetan guide, driver and cook who took care of our trip, were excellent, they were very caring, and did everything they could to ensure our journey was safe and most enjoyable.
We had a great time, and would look forward to traveling with Makalu Adventure again in the future.
