Client Reviews

Im April 2022 habe ich die perfekte "Nepal-Kennenlern-Tour" mit Hari gemacht. 
Es war mein erstes Trekking und auch mein erstes Mal in Nepal. Hari hat die perfekte Tour für mich geplant und ich hatte eine unfassbar tolle Zeit! 
Von der ersten Sekunde an habe ich mich extrem wohl gefühlt. Alles war perfekt vorbereitet und ich konnte mich ganz sorglos auf die neuen Erfahrungen und Erlebnisse konzentrieren. 
Neben einigen kulturellen Highlights, hat die Tour ein Trekking zum Poon Hill beinhaltet. Von dort konnte ich einen unbeschreiblich schönen Sonnenaufgang mit Himalaya-Panorama genießen. 
Hari hat sich wirklich super um alles gekümmert und war stets darum bemüht, dass ich mich rundum wohl fühle - was ihm auch ausnahmlos gelungen ist! 
Ich hatte eine unfassbar gute Zeit in Nepal und bin begeistert von diesem vielseitigen und wunderschönen Land, den grandiosen Menschen, die dort leben und dem unfassbar guten Essen. 
Ich komme auf jeden Fall wieder - die nächste Tour ist quasi schon geplant! 
Nachdem Hari mich mit dieser Tour entspannt an das Land, die Kultur, das Trekking und die Höhe herangeführt hat, geht es beim nächsten Mal hoch hinaus :) 
Vielen Dank für die tolle Zeit, die grandiosen Eindrücke, die ich sammeln konnte und die guten Gespräche auf unserem Weg. 
Ich würde jederzeit wieder mit Hari losziehen. Er ist der beste und zuverlässigste Guide, den man sich vorstellen kann!



2 Sektionsgruppen des DAV Köln wurden im März 2022 von Nabin bzw. Hari durch das wunderbare Tsumtal und bei der erfolgreichen Manasluumrundung hervorragend geführt. Lob gebührt auch dem gesamten Team von Charming Guide Adventure Trek. Es gab eine schon fast familiäre Betreuung, angefangen vom Good-Morning-Tea, der Versorgung mit Obst und Käse während des gesamten Trekkings bis zur regelmäßigen  Blutsauerstoffmessung. Vielen Dank für die kompetente Führung, nicht nur beim Wandern und der anspruchsvollen Überschreitung des Larkya-La, sondern auch bei Dorfrundgängen, Klosterbesichtigungen sowie durch die Altstädte von Kathmandu und Bhaktapur! Eine weiteres Sektionsgruppentrekking habe ich für Oktober 2022 geplant und kann es vertrauensvoll wieder in die Hände von Hari legen.

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!
