What people are saying about Welcome Nepal Treks



Thanks to my guide Tanka and porter Chhabi for an awesome trip to the Himalayas! All throughout the trip they ensured that I had everything that I needed and checked in on my comfort level all throughout. The guide took time every day to explain plans for the next day, to take pictures and to point out landmarks. The views of Annapurna I and Machhapuchhare are gorgeous from the Mardi Himal base camp (more so than Mardi Himal itself). Note that you enjoy flexibility during the trip. The camps that you stay at each night are only suggestions - we adjusted from the described plan to time the weather so we could get the best views, and to get off the trail early on Day 5. Much of the trail is improved with steps or stone walkways and it is a popular trail where you will meet other hiking groups. I brought everything suggested by Welcome Nepal Treks for the trip and was well equipped. Communication with Welcome Nepal Treks was entirely through Whatsapp, and I was able to rendezvous with the guide on Day 1 with no problem. I would book a trip with Welcome Nepal Treks again!



Had a great trip to Everest Base Camp. Everyone involved did their best to make it the perfect experience and I can confidently recommend this service to others!



The trip was sensational - would recommend to anyone. Explore share was simple and easy to use and everyone we dealt with was super friendly and accomodating.



We had an amazing Mardi Himal trek. We booked last minute and we were dealt with promptly and professionally. The trek was fully customisable including a stay in a lovely hotel and bus rides to and from Kathmandu. Our guide Amir was awesome and made our trek everything we wanted. Thank you so much!



We hebben echt genoten van onze trekking naar ABC. Jammer genoeg waren er echter overal problemen met de kamer. We hebben dan expres via een agency geboekt en meer betaald, zodat we zeker een kamer overal zouden krijgen. Dit bleek dan een probleem te zijn, omdat er niets op voorhand was geboekt. Ook hebben we last minute (letterlijk 5 min voor de 1e ontmoeting) een bericht van Hari gekregen dat we een andere guide zouden krijgen. Hierbij kregen we geen uitleg. De nieuwe guide had geen EHBO kit mee en wist ook helemaal niet wat allemaal inbegrepen was in onze boeking. Dit was opzich geen probleem, maar het leek plots allemaal niet meer zo goed georganiseerd als het beloofde te zijn. Ondanks dit hebben we echt wel genoten van onze tocht en zijn we blij dat we het gedaan hebben.
