Ngima and his team have huge experience of trekking in Nepal including the famous Mt Everest over many years. 10 of us from Taranaki, New Zealand were involved in a collaborative clean drinking water project for the village of Khari khola sponsored by Lion's International NZ

Ngima was told by Sir Edmond Hilary a long time ago to make sure "you leave your name behind" and he often pondered on what did he mean by that. Over the years he has come to realise it is about doing good works in your local community and always looking out for ways to better the lives of those around you. So he uses his trekking business as a way of achieving these community goals.

We all had a most amazing experience. "Beats a cruise any day". It was a great feeling to be able to help people less fortunate than ourselves.The hospitality, kindness, and the so very happy dispositions of the people despite having so little will never be forgotten! They made it so much fun for us. We were always safe, welcomed warmly, well cared for and looked after by Ngima's family and guides. Differing levels of fitness were catered for. We found them all to be very trustworthy and very honest.

When the school children presented us all with many scarves I became quite emotional. That was such a significant gesture from people who had so little.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Ngima Sherpa's Nepal Myths and Mountain Trails business for anybody visiting Nepal. You would be guaranteed to have a great time and your heart will always been drawn to return to Nepal.

We were collected from the airport and have stayed with Ngima and his Sherpa family and have been had wonderful hospitality. Any information we require Ngima is able to assist with organising Mount Everest flying visit as well as local guides and assistance with further flights within Nepal. Thank you so much and l look forward to returning one day and do some hiking next time. Highly recommend staying with this Sherpa family.

We had an awesome time on our trek in the Everest base camp area organised by Ngima. Even when we got into a bit of trouble Ngima went beyond the call of duty to sort things out for us and look after us. Was really happy with the itinerary and everything that was included. Highly recommended.

Compare to all the major treks that the other reviewers have done, i feel like a little fry, writing this review but one thing that Nigma and his company never once made me or my partner feel was small. Pre- depature, they were fast to respond to all my emails and request. during my trip, they were personal, prompt, professional and offered a-lot of insights on the places we visited. Post- departure, they've inspired me to wanna go back and trek to Everest Base Camp. Highly recommended. A little tip when you are in Durbar Square in the palace court there is a wall of Kings, ask the guide to tell you the the tragic tale of the last 3 Kings, it reads like a scene for a Shakespeare's play.
