Client Reviews

In May 2019, my father and I, did a trekking in Mustang with Hari Kumar Khatri as a guide and the “Mannschaft”: Nabin, Biman, Shatiman and Harkha. The trekking lasted about 20 days and we basically always slept in tends: sometimes outside the houses of the villagers and sometimes in the middle of nowhere.
Unfortunately, especially in the southern part of the Upper Mustang, people are building many roads which are literally destroying the landscape. But thanks to the knowledge of Hari of this territory, we were able to avoid the majority of the roads consequently avoiding other tourists and the traffic.
Overall, the trekking was very well organized. I really appreciated the fact that we were able to adapt the itinerary according to our preferences even during the trekking! I must add that Hari is not only a good guide but also a great cook!
This was my second trek with Hari and once again I really enjoyed it and I would for sure recommend him as a guide to somebody interested in doing a trekking in Nepal.
Thank you Hari and the Mannschaft for the great trekking and happy moments!

Wir (2Pers.) haben im Oktober/November 2019, mit Nabin als Guide, den Manaslu Trekk und das Tsum Valley gemacht. Organisation und Durchführung der Reise waren top.Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld mit Hari hat auch bestens geklappt. Es war ein unvergesslicher Urlaub und ich werde bestimmt nochmal nach Nepal kommen und dann auch wieder mit dieser Agentur unterwegs sein.
Liebe Grüße an das ganze Team

Nach 2013 (Arnapurna) war ich jetzt im November 2019 ein zweites Mal mit Hari unterwegs in seinem schönen Land.Diesmal im Sagarmatha Nationalpark.Es ging nach Gokyo.Alles war perfekt organisiert von der Ankunft bis zum Abflug. Hari war immer für uns da (3 Teilnehmer).
Besonders als ich mich auf dem Rückweg kurz vor Namche Bazar schwer verletzte.Hari hat sich fürsorglich um mich gekümmert.Organisierte den Hubschrauberflug nach Kathmandu ! Trotz meines Unfalles war es ein unvergesslicher Urlaub mit tollen Eindrücken.Hari nochmals vielen lieben Dank für alles. Ich kann nur sagen: WENN NEPALURLAUB , DANN NUR MIT HARI!!
