Visit Himalaya Trek was recommended to us by their longtime client and we could not have been more satisfied with them.
Initially, we were in touch with several agencies but after few emails, it became quite clear Himal, the owner, is much more knowledgeable about the trek, side trips and open to any requests we had.
The email communication prior the trek was prompt, professional, the pricing is very competitive and transparent.
We never trekked with a guide before as we prefer to be in charge of our route, time frame, accommodation etc. As we wanted to trek around Kanchenjunga, where the guide is mandatory we have expressed our concern of losing the independent decision to Himal. He assured us that this should not be a problem. His knowledge of the area made us decide to give his agency a chance.
Our trek turned out to be wonderful, the weather was great, the mountains incredible; our guide was respecting our schedule decisions, including the side trips, accommodation needs, never pushing us.
Himal proved to be very professional and caring; we found out that he keeps on checking our hiking progress during the trek, not only by calling the guide but also phoning some owners of the lodges where we stayed.
There are so many agencies in Kathmandu and one never knows what agency to choose as some of them are not honest. We were told about that guides participate in the helicopter scam, where they put baking soda in the client’s meals, which mimics AMS and then force the client to take a helicopter back to Kathmandu (for a nice bonus ).
So it is very important to choose the agency that will never support such a practice. Visit Himalaya will do everything in their power to ensure your trip is a success.
