Varied trip for a family, Nepal - Aug 5 - Aug 13, 2018
Mads was really helpful from the outset and helped me work out a fantastic itinerary for myself and my family. We thoroughly enjoyed it all from the trekking with our lovely guide chheering, the white water rafting expedition and our luxurious stay at Chitwan. Our adventure to lumbini and across the border was fun but would maybe fly from Kathmandu next time! Amanda, our contact in Kathmandu was faultless- giving us excellent recommendations for meals and providing us with a phone so we could... read more
Jomsom muktinath trek, Nepal - Jul 29 - Aug 6, 2018
My wife and I recently traveled to Nepal on our honeymoon to explore part of the mustang region. We were looking for adventure, culture and scenery. Our guide Thinley and the whole team from Responsible Treks gave us a wonderful adventure. Nepal is such a beautiful country rich in history, culture and spirit, and the mustang region was just as breathtaking as we had hoped it would be. Even with the monsoon weather providing us with a range of obstacles, the Responsible Treks team worked... read more
Trip to nepal, Nepal - Jul 16 - Jul 30, 2018
We had a wonderful experience in Nepal, and I can't say enough great things about Chhewang and Sonam from Responsible Treks. This was our first time to Nepal, and Chhewang was extremely helpful in designing the perfect itinerary for us. He assessed our capabilities and interests, and proposed several options. He was patient and responsive with our questions and flexible to meet our needs at every step.
We trekked the remote region of Nar and Phu, and then part of the Annapurna Circuit. We... read more
Nepal's main trekking regions, Nepal - Jul 21 - Jul 29, 2018
Loved the trek so much! Didn’t really think about much before I go. Alex and Erin are very experienced in terms of giving good advice on the drier route during monsoon season and taking care of my arrival. Ngawang is such a experienced guide and he was very helpful along the trek. Food is very good and satisfying during the trip too ;)
Balthali village trek via namo buddha and panauti, Nepal - May 26 - Jun 3, 2018
We are very grateful to Erin and the kimkim team for putting together a fantastic and memorable holiday this May. Our decision to go to Nepal was pretty last minute and not exactly at the best time of year to visit, but with Erin's guidance we were able to figure out an itinerary with all of the experiences we were looking for, while maximizing the opportunities for good weather and clear skies/views. Our trip included a four-day trek from Jomsom - with an incredibly memorable flight to... read more
Trip to nepal, Nepal - Jul 25 - Aug 1, 2018
My guide was very friendly and helpful for my trekking. He organized well and take care of me well too as we travel together. Erin helped me a lot by providing some information about this whole trip as this is my time to come trekking in Nepal. Everything was excellent and the one thing I was impressed was to see the local people in Langtang who work hard to rebuild their villages destroyed by the earthquake in 2015.
Priya meets nepal!, Nepal - Jul 7 - Jul 19, 2018
Sangita worked with me over the course of 2 weeks to help me plan my first visit to Nepal. She took all of my requests and suggestions into account, coming up with a fantastic itinerary. Unfortunately, I became ill with pneumonia shortly before my trip and ended up coming home early, having spent less time in Nepal than originally intended. However, I enjoyed the sightseeing that I was able to do, thanks to Sangita's extraordinary attention to detail and organization of every step of my... read more

Anura was amazing!
She's the best!
Ghorepani trek - popular 5-day trek via poon hill and ghandruk, Nepal - Jul 1 - Jul 8, 2018
My partner Kim and I had the most amazing experience on our trip to Nepal. Despite going in the rainy season we managed to stay dry the whole time! It will always be a special trip for us as Kim proposed near Poon Hill. We were blown away by the service - every member of the team was exceptional in their attention to detail, friendliness and manner. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Prajwol, Furba and the whole team. Many thanks!
Poonhill trek 5 days with my daughter, Nepal - Jun 23 - Jun 27, 2018
Great support from your Team, from start of the planning process until the end of the trip.
Return to langtang - 8 days, Nepal - May 26 - Jun 1, 2018
The planning was very helpful and my guide, Ngawang Sherpa, was great. However I feel slightly deceived. My trip cost over $100USD per day, and I was assured that it would be just as expensive to do it on my own. However, I looked at prices while trekking and it would have cost me around $25 a day including my permits and transportation.
The trek was beautiful though and the experience was so memorable. I would definitely suggest to someone trekking in Annapurna to do it without a guide however, because you could save so much money.
Pikey peak: a short trek with great views of everest, Nepal - Jun 18 - Jun 22, 2018
I have nothing but kind things to say regarding my recent trip to Pikey Peak in Nepal. Both Rachel and I had never been to Nepal before, and were overwhelmed with the kindness and hospitality we experienced both with the company and people we stayed with throughout the trek.
Needless to say, you need a guide if you have never hiked or journeyed through Nepal before. It is not only essential for your safety, but also because local guides have immense amount of knowledge and insight about... read more
Pikey peak: a short trek with great views of everest, Nepal - Jun 18 - Jun 22, 2018
100/10 would strongly recommend booking through kimkim for a trek through Nepal!
I inquired on a whim just to ask a few questions and Mads and Amanda took full reigns to cater the trip specifically for what we wanted to see, do, and experience all within our time frame. Their tips were very informative and helpful as well as prompt.
As for the actual trek, we got taxi pick up with our guide, Naress, on the first day and he accompanied us 24/7 after that. Naress was AMAZING. He cared for us... read more
Group departure - manaslu circuit trek - the ultimate off-the-beaten-path trek in nepal - 13 to 19 days, Nepal - Jun 5 - Jun 18, 2018
It was truly a pleasant and wonderful experience from start to end! Amanda and Mads were really awesome and prompt in answering my queries. Thank you for their patience because it took so long to confirm my trip. Co-ordination of the team was flawless, it was a thoughtful gesture for us to meet Raj at the end of the trip to review the trek and also to understand the company a little more. The trek was awesome, it was really beautiful and the landscape was so varied and diverse! Chhiring was a... read more
The best short treks in nepal - trekking itineraries ranging from 3 to 10 days, Nepal - Jun 10 - Jun 20, 2018
An amazing trek, short but challenging for us. Beautiful landscape and views of the Annapurnas. Our guide Tendu and porter Dorje were very patient and accommodating. We went in the off season, but were very lucky with both the weather and open tea houses. The only unfortunate thing was that the packing list provided to us was definitely optimized for the fall and winter, and we were way over-laden with warm clothes, rain gear and sleeping bags that we didn't need. Overall a fantastic experience from start to finish.
Experience nepal, Nepal - Oct 25 - Oct 31, 2017
My friend and I had the BEST experience with booking through kimkim, as well as, working with Raj to plan out our adventure. We had many questions before and after arriving to our destination and Raj and team were so helpful throughout the entire experience. We gave an idea of things we would be interested in doing while in Nepal and Raj, Anura and team planned it out flawlessly. Our only complaint is that we didn't stay longer to experience more of what Nepal has to offer. We had no worries... read more
The best short treks in nepal - trekking itineraries ranging from 3 to 10 days, Nepal - Jun 10 - Jun 20, 2018
Our guide, porter, and drivers in country were all wonderful; knowledgeable, reliable, friendly, and helpful.
After spending 7 months planning the trip with Amanda, it was disappointing to be redirected to other individuals for the final lead up, and then also during the trip.
Group departure - manaslu circuit trek - the ultimate off-the-beaten-path trek in nepal - 13 to 19 days, Nepal - Jun 5 - Jun 19, 2018
The trip was amazing, I enjoyed every moment of it. Chhiring, our guide, was incredible, helped us all the time.
Nepal, Nepal - Jun 7 - Jun 14, 2018
Pre-Trip: Fast reply to questions. Flexible arrangements.
Trek: Well organised, great team, great people - which could be hard as you live with them day after day .
One of us had never flown long haul and the other was on their fourth trip to Nepal, the service provided exceeded both our expectations.
So in summary I would highly recommend for both novice or experienced travellers alike.
Khopra danda trek, Nepal - Apr 18 - May 1, 2018
I was extremely impressed with NMMT and would happily travel with them again. Of particular note were the consistently speedy responses by Ngima to all pre-trip correspondence and our endless queries, all dealt with with great courtesy and infinite patience, plus the helpful explanations and suggestions made in the planning and lead-up to our trip (5 people). The impression was of an efficient, experienced team who can deal with anything that crops up. We were not disappointed. Tashi and... read more
Ghadruk trek, Nepal - Jun 2 - Jun 5, 2018
I cannot say enough about how professional, efficient, personable, and thorough the team at Responsible Treks was.
I consider myself a low-maintenance traveler, so I was not used to having such a highly attentive team. But I’m grateful for it. They took care of every detail, leaving my focus only on soaking in the scenery, history, culture, and terrain of one of the most beautiful countries on earth.
Kunchok guided me through selecting a trek and preparing for it. He was responsive to every... read more

Himalayan range tour, Nepal - May 26 - May 29, 2018
This was my second visit to Nepal and my second time using this company. Amanda and Tendu provided excellent service once again!!
I contacted Amanda to have her set up a tour for us on short notice. She was always quick to respond, friendly, accommodating and answered all of our questions. We did a three day trip through Pokhara, Dhampus and Bandipur, which would have been hard to do on our own. We stayed at fantastic guest houses and had some great views. Our guide Tendu was very knowledgeable and friendly. I will be coming back to Nepal and I will be using this company again!!
Lukla to three passes trek, Nepal - May 6 - May 22, 2018
Ngima's company, Nepal Myths and Mountain Trails, was amazing! From the first steps of communication to our arrival to our trek and to an additional day trip after that, we were responded to promptly, effectively, and with the utmost of care. We did the three passes trek with Ang gelu Sherpa as our guide. He was an exceptional guide and an awesome person. He made sure that our experience was perfect at all times. While our experience leads us to believe that Ngima's company would be an... read more
Trip to nepal, Nepal - May 11 - May 18, 2018
I cannot say enough about the awesome Nepal trek we recently competed that was booked through KimKim with Responsible Treks. From our first interactions, KimKim identified the type of trip we were interested in, the specific dates we were available and matched us with a trekking company and a trek that fit our skill level and expectations.
The trip itself exceeded our expectations on all fronts. The communications we received via KimKim's platform helped us plan our trip, get a great... read more
Explore and discover nepal, Nepal - May 19 - May 26, 2018
Sudarshan is an amazing host, pre-trip and during the trip! He gave very speedy replies and was very efficient even though I made multiple changes throughout the planning of the trip.
He also constantly stayed in contact with me throughout the trip via whatsapp to make sure that everything was going fine and gave us up to date information on what was going to happen next.
He even invited our group out for dinner on our final day! (Although we had to decline as we weren't feeling very well).... read more
Trip to nepal, Nepal - May 12 - May 24, 2018
Damber was quite possibly the best guide I could have asked for. He was considerate, extremely knowledgeable, caring and very entertaining. The journey was significantly easier under his care. Many fellow trekkers didn’t make it, or struggled intensely. I am convinced much of my journey was made easier based on following his very experienced advice. I strongly recommend both the site and Damber specifically. In spending the time and money to attempt to get to EBC, make the effort to get the best guide possible. Damber is it.
5-6 day trek , Nepal - May 7 - May 18, 2018
Trip was excellent. Amanda was more than awesome. I give her 10 stars, not just five. She handled all our needs, last minute changes and beyond.
Mingma and Dorje were top-notch and literally saved our trek by being agile in the face of Indian Prime Minister’s visit to Muktinath. They stayed informed of his changing schedule and altered our trek route and time-table to enable our visit. They both were knowledgeable, fun, and a pleasure to trek with. During trek days they stayed close to us... read more
Annapurna foothills cultural trek, Nepal - Apr 19 - Apr 24, 2018
Very well organised trip with kimkim. During our hike we didnt see any other tourists so it felt really special walking there only with the guide and porter. Our guide Padam Paudel was very kind and told us a lot about Nepal and the local villages and the life there.
The lodges were perfect aswell. Nice beds and bathrooms with warm water. Also the food was good and the happy hour was included ;)
The views of the mountains were the best in the morning when the sky was clear. Incredible experience!
Trip to nepal, Nepal - May 13 - May 17, 2018
I had a wonderful experience with KimKim and the trekking company the set me up with, Responsible Treks. Let me fill you in!
After checking out trekking options on kimkims website, they connected me with trekking specialist Kunchok Nima, who was able to provide me with wise advice and suggestions as to which trek we should do, based off the amount of time we had and experience. After booking the Poonhill trek he continued to keep contact with me, confirming details and answering questions,... read more
Nepal trip 2018, Nepal - Apr 27 - May 13, 2018
I cannot speak too highly of the team at KimKim. From the moment I first made contact to the very end of our trip the service was outstanding. They focussed on finding out exactly what we wanted and then provided way above expectations. Mads put the trip together checking throughout if it was exactly what we wanted. The city guide Rajive was very knowledgeable and informative. The Inn Patan was a great place to stay.
The trek was just the right level for us. It stretched us. OK some... read more
Post- kopan monastery visit, Nepal - May 8 - May 12, 2018
Hi Tashi and Prajwol,
Sorry I've taken so long to review but I was thinking it over and didn't want to write exactly how I was feeling at the time. I'm going to just give a breakdown of my experiences on the trip you planned for me.
Day 1- the touring day.
The guide was very knowledgeable and he made the whole experience quite pleasant for my friend and me. We do recommend using him in the future. However, there were two situations where we felt VERY uncomfortable. I had been feeling off... read more
Ghandruk trek - scenic 3-4 day trek through the annapurna foothills, Nepal - May 4 - May 7, 2018
Organizing and booking through Kimkim was easy and fast. I only contacted them online 5days before my travel and it was still possible to have an amazing 4day trip on the Gandruk trek! The journey was customized to my needs and I had a wonderful guide and porter. I just had to follow them and everything was taken care of. I had a lot of time to enjoy the mountains and the beautiful villages and did not have to worry about anything. Just perfect! The tea houses we stayed in were simple, but cosy and there was all I needed. Honestly a truly amazing experience and good value for money!
Balthali village trek via namo buddha and panauti, Nepal - Apr 30 - May 5, 2018
our guides - Dawar & Naresh - were so kind and helpful. We loved that they joined us in the evenings before/after dinner, it felt really personal the whole time, they were our local friends telling us so much about the culture, region and country. They did a fantastic job and are a credit to the team.
Most memorable place was Namobhuddha - the tranquility of the resort made us book an extra spontaneous night, it was a beautiful place! The monastery had us mesmerised and we've since learnt... read more
Three passes trek - the ultimate 19-day trek in the everest region of nepal, Nepal - Apr 11 - May 2, 2018
After a week back in the Netherlands I look back after a huge experience in the Himalayas.
Supported by a special team with Raj and Anura, who provided me with information from the booking of the trip, I was received in Kathamandu with a greeting dinner and an afternoon where I got all the explanation and what my responsibilities are during the 19-day trek . Especially because I am no longer one of the youngest (69 years), Raj has gone into great depths about pulling at high altitudes. The... read more
Upper mustang and abc, Nepal - Mar 30 - May 1, 2018
Both the Upper Mustang Valley trek and the Annapurna Base Camp trek were fantastic and both so very different. Our guide, Pemba, was awesome and really went out of his way to make things as easy as possible for us. Would definitely recommend him, and our porter, Amar, was also great. We met some fantastic people, both local and trekkers on these trips and had lots of laughs with them. Every day was different and every day was memorable. It is very hard to pin point any particular day, but we'll never forget the view when we got to Annapurna Base Camp.
Balthali village trek via namo buddha and panauti, Nepal - Apr 4 - Apr 7, 2018
I can not say enough how amazing our experience was with Kimkim. I worked wih a Amanda who customized our trip to fit the very limited time we had in Nepal. We did a 3 day trip and were able to hike and explore the Kathmandu area which would have been very difficult to do on our own. We had a hiking guide and a city guide and both were amazing, knowledgadble and super friendly. We loved the hotels Amanda reserved for us. The Namo Buddha Resort was beautiful and very peaceful. If and when I go back to Nepal I will use this company. I highly recommend them!
Interested in doing manaslu trek in april 2018, Nepal - Apr 15 - Apr 30, 2018
The Manaslu Trek was everything we hoped for and more! Right from the start, our travel specialist Amanda, was very helpful and quick to answer all of our questions and concerns. She helped to plan and organize the perfect trip tailored specifically to our requests. The online booking experience was also very efficient and easy.
Upon arriving in Kathmandu we had the opportunity to meet with both Amanda and our guide Chhiring and were given a full briefing of the itinerary prior to the... read more
Return to langtang - 8 days, Nepal - Apr 27 - May 4, 2018
The Lang Tang trek was exactly what I was looking for! Following a beautiful blue river through the jungle like forest, past a variety of rhodedendron and finally up, up, up to the Himalayas was spectacular. Rishi our guide was lighthearted and fun. Susan our porter not only carried some of our weight but added to our enjoyment throughout our journey. By the end of the trail we had become friends, sharing laughter and life stories. It was refreshing to get away from the crowds of people and... read more
Family trekking, Nepal - Apr 23 - May 1, 2018
This was truly a trip of a lifetime for our family. We spent 9 days just below Everest and had a wonderful time. Our guide Tendu was excellent and his attentiveness and personal touch made this trip unforgettable. He worked hard to make sure we were all looked after and that everything went smoothly.
Sadly, the weather was much colder than predicted which impacted us on the last few days. The teahouse in Panbouche was below standard and the ownership seemed indifferent to the comfort of... read more
Best of nepal, Nepal - Apr 25 - Apr 30, 2018
We wanted a hassle-free trip and Raj and his team had certainly delivered. Everything was executed as communicated ahead of time with positive surprises threw in here and there. One certainly has to pay for this kind of service but it's nice that the result is as advertised. We had a short and easy trip and would really love to go back to Nepal to explore her natural beauty in the future.
Pikey peak trek, Nepal - Apr 15 - Apr 24, 2018
I had a wonderful experience on my trip to Nepal. I will remember it forever. Amanda organised us a wonderful Trip. Mingma Sherpa our guide was very professional & friendly, happy to accommodate our changes when asked.
Megshha Karki our yogi was very friendly & made us laugh often. He is a funny guy. His yoga sessions helped us continue on our Trek everyday with all our aches & pains. The Porters, Bashil, Hindu, Navarus, Rokman & Mingmar 2 were all very friendly & helpful, ready to help us... read more
Immersive, local experience, hiking/trekking, Nepal - Apr 16 - Apr 28, 2018
First of all, Nepal and Nepali people were just amazing! Himalayan Trails were great!! Amanda and Himalayan Trails couldn't have more helpful, knowledgeable and coming up with solutions when issues arose.
Pikey peak trek, Nepal - Apr 15 - Apr 24, 2018
It was a lot harder then any of us imaged. Challenged us, some of us got sick. Mingmar was great! He was a fantastic help all along the way! Made us amazing food and taught us about the culture. Meghsha was also fabulous in the way he helped us lumber up for the day ahead! Meghsha also has a lot of knowledge regarding culture, and history. Amanda was great in the way she set us all up, to bring us all together. The porters were also so amazing, they assisted innany way they could, including dragging us to a safer destination.
Pikey peak trek, Nepal - Apr 15 - Apr 24, 2018
From the beginning of planning to days after our trek ended, our family group of seven have received five star treatment from everyone at Himalayan trails. After way too many requests and questions from us, Amanda put together a fabulous trek to match our needs. We felt privileged to have Mingmar, the best Sherpa guide ever, along with Meghsha who taught us yoga, meditation & totally enhanced our experience with lessons on local religions, beliefs and cultures. With five fabulous (& strong!)... read more
The best short treks in nepal - trekking itineraries ranging from 3 to 10 days, Nepal - Apr 20 - Apr 24, 2018
Welcoming by people living in the mountains was always good. Teahouse food always freshly cooked on demand and very good, which was surprising with the remoteness of the villages or base camp.
Dawa our guide know well the track so no issue about being guided. Many new roads are being built so sometimes it was hard to find the right track. From the description of our trip, we went through a cheese factory village. Dawa didn't tell us and it is a bit disappointed that he never talked about... read more
Balthali village trek via namo buddha and panauti, Nepal - Apr 6 - Apr 12, 2018
Overall the planning process was smooth - Kripa was responsive and addressed my questions. My guide, Rishi was great! He was knowledgeable, friendly, and a pleasure to trek with.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the route (Balthali Village Trek) designed by kimkim. Based on the descriptions on the site (and research I did online), I was under the impression I would be trekking between quiet hillside villages, off the beaten path, near mountains. This was not the case. While Rishi... read more
Group departure - three passes trek - the ultimate 19-day trek in the everest region of nepal, Nepal - Apr 7 - Apr 23, 2018
Nepal is a great place but can be chaotic even by South African standards. Every trip to Nepal and Himalaya should be done with a guide from a reputable company.
From the start to the end of our trip we were in the fast lane. When people were queuing, either Ngima or our guide Mingmar got us to the front with no hassle.
There are premium accommodation options along the EBC and Three passes trek, however, most are very basic but adequate. Western toilets become a rarity the closer one gets... read more
Trip to nepal, Nepal - Mar 7 - Mar 16, 2018
Everything about my trip was wonderful! I booked this trip on pretty short notice so I really relied on Kim at the KimKim to plan everything and I’m glad I did. Kim and I talked about what I was looking for and she was really helpful in letting me know the different options. She recommended a trek in the Everest region and it was exactly what I wanted. My guide, Phutashi, was great - he was really knowledgeable and friendly and made sure I had a great trek. He changed our route a little after... read more
Trekking with your family in nepal, Nepal - Apr 9 - Apr 14, 2018
My family and I had a great time on the Panchese trek. Kripa was able to adjust our trip to ad 1 more day. This made it easier for the 2 kids ( 3 and 6). The first two days were a little long for the 6 year old but she made it and did an excellent job. Chhepaul was and outstanding guide who showed patience and bonded with the kids. He was able to customize a basket to carry the 3 year old. The porter ( Mime? ) was awesome with the kids especially the 3 year old. There was a language barrier but I thing they both enjoyed each other’s company
Nepal and trekking, Nepal - Mar 26 - Apr 9, 2018
Where to start! What an amazing trek! Amanda was great throughout the organising, answering any questions I had (and I had a lot!). We had a good group of us who did the trek together. Our guides Gelu and Nurbu were awesome and so were our porters always smiling and helping! I was blown away by their efforts put into the trek because they never rested! They were even in the kitchen preparing our meals when the cook had a day off! They were also very helpful while walking especially on the... read more
Group departure - manaslu circuit trek - the ultimate off-the-beaten-path trek in nepal - 13 to 19 days, Nepal - Mar 26 - Apr 9, 2018
I believe our trek guide Gelu did an amazing job throughout the 2 weeks. His experience, and temperament was valued, whilst his willingness to help all trekkers to have an amazing trip was first class. Actually this is true for his whole team, including porters and assistant guide Nu bo. They all performed roles from guides, to cooks, to waiters, to boot fixers etc with a smile and pleasant nature.
In regards to the trek itself, it included beautiful country and challenging terrain towards... read more
Kathmandu valley starting from pokhara, Nepal - Apr 7 - Apr 13, 2018
The platform provided by Kimkim is innovative in its simplicity and ease of use. We were immediately linked to a local expert Amanda who put together the trip for us. With patience and enthusiasm, she tailored the trip to our needs and wishes. In the end we had the perfect mix of local culture, sightseeing and relaxing. Babu is a professional and safe driver and was always on time and helping us with our bags. We also learned a lot from our local guide, Rajeev, who answered so many of our questions and introduced us to several local restaurants. Great service!
Balthali village trek via namo buddha and panauti, Nepal - Mar 24 - Apr 5, 2018
The 8 days we spent with Tendu were very memorable. He was very knowledgeable with the areas that we were trekking. He was very personable, professional and his sense of humour kept us motivated when we needed motivation. He was very attentive to our needs at the various tea houses. Lapka and Kazi were a delight to have along on the trek. I would highly recommend Tendu as a guide to anyone coming to Nepal.

Our trip was truly amazing! We saw so much of Nepal and its people. Amanda was truly wonderful in crafting an experience that perfectly incorporated our adventurous spirits, need for a little rest and relaxation, our want to be immersed in the local culture and excitement about visiting a new country.

Gelu, the cheif guide and Nurbu were both amazing. Incredibly helpful, and caring.
I'd like to add that Gelu's insight when tweaking the itinerary really helped make the trip even better- affording us better rest, to save time and to make it to the pass on a much better (sunny) day. Gelu was also very good at crisis management- I had issues with my knee, did not manage to get a raincoat for the trek and a friend really struggled. Gelu was incredibly patient and helpful with all of us.

Booking our trip on kimkim was extremely simple and convenient. We were connected to Ngima right away, and he was professional and attentive all the way through. Everything that we experienced prior to the trip was easy, smooth, and enjoyable.
The trip itself was rather disappointing because our guide failed time and time again to do his job properly. He seemed entirely unfamiliar with the region of Nepal that we trekked through and depended on our porter to do a number of things that he... read more

By far the best communication out of the guding companies I’ve used in Nepal. He asnwers all questions and concers promptly and to your full satisfaction! All his staff from his fully certified and experienced guides and porters to his person taxi/driving staff for airport pick ups and drops offs are... read more

Her services are professional and personal. We did a 3 day trek with Mr Saila, an amazing guide and the great Mr Jongkwe as our porter. Mr Mangal did an great job with guiding and advising us with all the transfers. It was like clockwork and he took great care of us. All accommodation was really good and... read more

This was my first time using kimkim, and I'm so glad I did! Amanda was great to work with, she gave me great tour options to fit my needs and advice to go along with it. I was able to customize the trip I wanted, and it was super easy when we had a few hiccups along the way (adding additional travelers, dealing with a flight cancellation). As planning became reality, my friends and I spent 3 days trekking east of Kathmandu through quaint villages and beautiful steppes from Dhulikhel to... read more

We were very impressed with how promptly, patiently, and thoroughly Ngima Dorji Sherpa answered all our numerous emailed questions. His attention made us feel at ease that he was personally making sure all our requirements were being attended to. We were personally greeted when we arrived in Kathmandu and fully briefed on the details of our meeting with our guide and porter at Lukla.
Our first trip to the Sagarmatha National Park was a most enjoyable and unforgettable experience thanks in... read more
Spring break in nepal, Nepal - Mar 25 - Mar 31, 2018
From the moment I requested information about the Poon Hill Trek to the moment I arrived back home from the perfectly organized trip, Mingma and his team have been helpful, kind, informative, and attentive. As a solo female traveler, I was a little apprehensive about what my experience would be. Mingma laid out a tentative itinerary in detail that fit my requests and needs. I was extremely pleased. The price for all of the services (airport pickup, hotel stays, flights between Kathmandu... read more
Nar and phu trek, Nepal - Mar 20 - Apr 1, 2018
My son and I had an absolutely amazing experience on the Nar Phu Valley trek. Our guide Chhiring and porter Nara, were fantastic. Chhiring provided us with a lot of commentary about the places, people, and social and cultural influences both past and present. Visiting the villages of Nar and Phu, particularly when there were very few other trekkers, was a remarkable experience but of course the stunning scenery the entire way, was the highlight. When it snowed heavily the night before we... read more
Nepal - march 2018, Nepal - Mar 13 - Mar 23, 2018
First of all kimkim was very easy to use, it was fast, accurate and we would definitely use them again.
Within hours of our initial inquiry, 4/6 weeks before the trip itself, we received a message from Ngima of Nepal Myths and Mountain Trails (NMMT), a Kathmandu based trekking company and from that moment we had direct contact with our tour operator right up until the day we traveled. Ngima listened to our requests and was able to create a bespoke itinerary matching our exact needs. He... read more
Annapurna circuit trek - 16 days: one of the classic treks in nepal, Nepal - Mar 2 - Mar 15, 2018
Sudarshan was super reliable at any times. He always answered within an hour. Has been very helpful with the planning of the trek. Super professional but also always worried and concerned about how my trek was going. The guide he provided me for the trek was one of the nicest human beings I have met throughoutmy life (Takta). I couldn't have asked for more, I had a great time with him. Making it an unforgettable experience for me. Sudarshan would always make sure the trek was tailormade to my... read more
Trip to nepal, Nepal - Mar 20 - Mar 27, 2018
The local team did a great job taking care of us and helping with all our needs! This went beyond the organized part of the tour (buying trekking shoes our organizing transport out of Kathmandu) and we could always count on them
Best of the kathmandu valley in 2 days, Nepal - Mar 8 - Mar 10, 2018
I really had a great experience in Nepal thanks to Kencho and the guide, Mr. Sherpa. It was really a sweet escape and I just had a blast. Everyone was so nice and helpful (starting from the pickup-drop), the resort was great, the track and tour was also memorable. I am so happy that the trip really captured what I want and I really look forward to be in Nepal again
Ghorepani, pokhara and kathmandu, Nepal - Mar 2 - Mar 16, 2018
These guys know their stuff and can handle much more difficult challenges than ours.
John and I started walking about a year ago and decided that it would be a good challenge to go trekking in Nepal. We are 67 and 64 years old and no previous trekking experience.
We first looked at holiday packages to Nepal, many are 14 day packages with 3-4 days trekking. That wasn’t enough trekking for us. Google search recommended using trekking companies being members of the... read more
Views of the mountains, Nepal - Mar 15 - Mar 19, 2018
Overall excellent. Good hotel in Kathmandu (Shankar). Amanda and team came to brief us. All well organised and implemented. Day trip around K was not enough (so we spent some more time on our own later). Requested "old folks" walking trip in hills near K was well organised and guide (Dawa) was sympathetic and adjusted pace to suit our knees. Very interesting and comfortable places to stay along route. We requested "view of the mountains" and it was provided! (courtesy of some rain which cleared the smog).
Overall - excellent.
Ghandruk trek - scenic 3-4 day trek through the annapurna foothills, Nepal - Mar 16 - Mar 21, 2018
Mads was so quick to suggest the great trek designed specifically for my 10 yr old daughter and I. He responded fast to any questions we had in the organisation phase too, nothing was too much bother for him.
Amanda contacted us in Kathmandu and it was lovely to meet her and Niresh (our guide) prior to commencing our adventure the next day.
Niresh was a gentle, knowledgeable guide who answered all of my silly local questions and shared so much of his knowledge and experience with us. He... read more
Short pokhara getaway, Nepal - Mar 12 - Mar 19, 2018
We had a wonderful 8 days in Nepal. Our itineray was very professionally organised by Amanda Delecca from start to finish. I could not fault her communication skills which was the reason we chose Amanda versus other tour operators. Amanda even arranged to meet us personally on arrival at our hotel to make sure everything was ok for the trip and to introduce us to our guides. Because of our limited time in Nepal Amanda had a good understanding of the amount of time we would need in each... read more
Muldai poon hill trek 4 days , Nepal - Mar 1 - Mar 4, 2018
Kripa was great at helping me plan everything! She made sure I was completely ready before my trip. My trek was amazing and definitely my highlight of Nepal. My guide was really helpful and kind to carry my bags with me, but I wished it was more interactive. He did not talk to me very much. However, my overall experience was wonderful.
March trek and trip to nepal, Nepal - Mar 3 - Mar 13, 2018
We had a fantastic trip! - Thanks so much to Amanda, Pemba and Nima for all their support and looking after us before and during the trip. The trek was spectacular -in particular, watching the sunrise at Muldai point! The planning and logistics when we were there, were seamless. I would highly recommend Himalayan Trails!
Manaslu circuit trek - the ultimate off-the-beaten-path trek in nepal - 13 to 19 days, Nepal - Nov 3 - Nov 16, 2017
Overall, very happy with Ang Gelu and Kunga. Both of them compliment each other, and they understood our trekking style.
Ang Gelu - Extremely patient person. Seriously, I can't tell you how many times I stopped during the first few days. He never left my side. Always trekking behind me at my pace. Sometimes slow and sometimes really fast. His stamina is spot on. It's evident he loves the mountains, the way he talks about them, later part of the trek. He made sure we got proper meals during... read more
Trip to nepal, Nepal - Feb 24 - Feb 28, 2018
Amanda was really helpful and flexible with our change in plans. I was so busy in the run up to the holiday that it was great to have someone else taking care of all the details. Our guide Mingmar was very experienced and professional (hugely overqualified for taking us up a 4000m peak which for Nepal is no more than a hill...) and the views were spectacular.
The whole trip was fantastic and thanks Erin for putting me in touch with Amanda!
Nar phu trek, Nepal - Feb 26 - Mar 6, 2018
Amanda (with Himalayan Trails) was very helpful throughout the trek coordination process. She had timely replies, good advice, and helped me suss through all the many options for my Nepal hiking experience. Plus, she made the time to meet me in Kathmandu before I left with my guide. I'll strongly consider booking my next trek with Himalayan Trails.
Winter trekking in nepal, Nepal - Feb 12 - Feb 21, 2018
We took months to plan our trip and Amanda was patient and quick to reply to any question we had. Once we arrived in Kathmandu, everything was taken care of. Our guide and porter, father and son duo Mingma and his son Darje really went out of their way to take care of us during the entire trip. The Khopra Danda community Trek allowed us to visit many local villages, with Mingma and Darje explaining the local custom, we learnt so much about Nepal. We are very impressed with Himalayan Trails as... read more
Kathmandu valley & pokhara - 9-day tour, Nepal - Feb 14 - Feb 27, 2018
We had the best time on our honeymoon to Nepal, completely planned by Raj at his team at Socialtours. From our first interaction on KimKim, we knew we had found something special in Raj--he listened to us regarding our budget, activity level and timing. We loved that once we arrived in Nepal, everything was taken care of for us. They booked all our ground transportation, in-country flights and tour guides. All we had to do was show up with our passports. Raj and Socialtours were excellent... read more
Nepal culture tour , Nepal - Feb 13 - Feb 19, 2018
Review for Nepal trip from13th February - 19th February
This was my first short trip to Nepal.
On the first day that I touched Nepal, my tour planner Kripa, Jeevan, driver Narayan, welcome me at the airport, Jeevan such a meticulous person, he quickly open a bottle of mineral water and pass it to me. Arrangement to meet Amanda, my tour guide Pratikshya, make me feel warm welcome to visit Nepal.
1st & 2nd day, stayed at The Inn Patan, an old traditional brick and timber Newari house... read more
Ghorepani trek + chitwan, Nepal - Jan 15 - Jan 28, 2018
Wow, what a fantastic trip. Thank you to everyone on the Kim Kim team. The trip was wonderful from beginning to end. Ngima Dorji Sherpa did not disappoint. He was there to make sure all the connections were flawlessly made. Our guide Lhakpa Chhetar Sherpa was fantastic. I described him as the mother you love dearly, taking care and looking after me every steep of the way. Our porter Nawn Pasang Sherpa was a true honor to have on the trek. We were traveling with a rock star, Pasang has made... read more
Introducing family to the kingdom, Nepal - Jan 11 - Jan 24, 2018
We had the experience of a lifetime with 2 teenagers.
Chhring and the porters Kobe and Kancha deserve a special mention for their empathy when we were feeling under the weather and their changes to the trek which made the trek more suitable to our needs. When there was any issue Raj , Surendra , Mads and Chhiring could not have been more accommodating. Thank you Chhiring!
The trek was everything we could have hoped for and I am coming back to do another one once I am fitter and will be using... read more
Trekking in nepal - a guide to the best trekking areas, best time to go, and tips on how to organize your trek, Nepal - Dec 27 - Jan 8, 2018
I have recently done the Annapurna Base Camp trek. From my first contact with Ngima it was so easy to arrange and Ngima answered all my questions promptly and helpfully and made the whole booking experience so problem free. The trek was everything I had hoped for and more, we were blessed with glorious weather throughout and reaching Base Camp at sunrise was a truly memorable experience. I was travelling with my son (I am 65 and my son 29) and our wonderful guide Pemba was so professional,... read more
Balthali village trek via namo buddha and panauti, Nepal - Jan 7 - Jan 11, 2018
To be honest, we put a lot of trust in Kimkim as we weren't paying a great deal of attention to the finer details prior to heading OS. So in reality, it could have all gone very poorly!
Luckily for us our faith and confidence in the service was not misguided and we had a great time. Being unfamiliar with a place like Nepal can be very daunting when it comes to planning a hike / trek so we appreciated the insight and experience offered by kimkim. I would also recommend the specific hike we... read more
Annapurna trek, Nepal - Dec 24 - Jan 2, 2018
Returned about a week ago, from a wonderful experience in Nepal that will be in my heart forever. After discussing my winter trekking options with Ngima Dorji Sherpa, the owner of Nepal Myths and Mountain Trails, I decided on the Khopra Danda Trek. Every day was amazing! I was greeted at Kathmandu Airport by Tashi, Ngima's son and began my trek the following morning.
This was a solo trek for me, and I was accompanied by two outstanding people, my guide Gelu and my porter Lakpa. They... read more
Ghorepani poonhill trek, Nepal - Dec 24 - Dec 29, 2017
The trek was amazing. The views were spectacular and those in my group were really friendly. Ngima was an excellent guide, open to suggestions while also keeping us on a good schedule. The teahouses/lodges we stayed at were better than expected. The Poon Hill sunrise hike and our stay in the village of Ghandruk were the most memorable parts but, all in all, we made a good amount of memories and friends throughout the trek!
Balthali village trek via namo buddha and panauti, Nepal - Dec 26 - Jan 4, 2018
8 days tour Nepal Chitwan and Kathmandu Valley trekking - Kimkim organized a couple of fantastic tours for us whilst we were in Nepal. They ensured we were fully prepared and had all information at hand to prepare for out trip. Whilst there they ensured the local tour company took care of us and organised eveything during our trips whilst remaining adaptable if thing needed to be changed. We asked for a few specific things during the tours and kimkim made sure they were absolutely catered... read more
Short trip to nepal, Nepal - Nov 2 - Nov 7, 2017
I could not have asked for a better experience! Mads arranged a perfect 6 day trek for me on short notice and it was absolutely perfect. All details were taken care of and he was extremely responsive and helpful. The entire team I interacted with were amazing, and the guide they paired me with could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable. The entire experience was amazing and one which I can't wait to repeat for a longer period of time. When I do, I'll definitely use Mads again - the service and experience I received were exemplary.
40th , Nepal - Dec 24 - Dec 29, 2017
When Dimple and I first made our booking we had so many reservations about taking our two boys (9yrs and 5yrs) on a trekking adventure in Nepal. Both have grown up in Singapore and never been on any long walks nor seen that much of the developing world. With so many questions going through our head, being able to reach out to Ngima and the staff at Kim Kim in preparation for our trip, was just ideal. We were able to ask questions and get answers pretty much around the clock - everyone was so... read more
Trekking in nepal - a guide to the best trekking areas, best time to go, and tips on how to organize your trek, Nepal - Dec 13 - Dec 16, 2017
The trek was amazing! What was even more amazing was my guide. I was quite ill on the first day - but Parbati was so understanding and patient with me from the outset and made sure I was at ease. On the second and third days, she pushed me to do better than I thought I could and I really appreciated this. The greatest part was that towards the end she was less of my guide and more of my friend whilst still maintaining a professional and courteous relationship. Hats off to her and the Social tours team for providing such an incredible experience for me!!
Nar phu valley trek - 9 days, Nepal - Nov 27 - Dec 9, 2017
We were a family group of three people with 15 days in Nepal. Based on our own research and in-put from Mads we selected the Nar/Phu trek.
We had a wonderful trip that completely lived up to our best expectations.
The process of selecting a trek and booking our holiday was highly efficient and very flexible. Responses to any questions were received rapidly.
Our guide (Cheeri) and two porters were outstanding and are highly recommended. Cheeri was true to his name and clearly a very... read more
Doug and pat nov. 2017 in nepal , Nepal - Nov 17 - Dec 5, 2017
We had an extraordinary trip, including amazing cultural and architectural experiences as well as a day of rafting and a multi-day trek.
Mads worked with us for months to set up itineraries for the various members of our four person group , since we had different arrival dates and did not always travel together. He arranged a wonderful visit to Bhutan for one of our group while the others did the Poon Hill trek. We loved the traffic-free stay in Bandipur, also the medieval cities Bhaktapur... read more
5 day pikey peak trek, Nepal - Nov 15 - Nov 19, 2017
Wow! Where do I begin?
My wife and I were a little short of time, having only around 8 days in Nepal but not wanting to miss out on the full Nepal experience; namely trekking, Himalayan views and the fascinating culture that the country has to offer.
Mads was immediately able to assist and his expertise and quick response time made it very easy to quickly establish how we could maximise our short time in Nepal. His obvious knowledge and experience was a reassurance in itself that we would... read more
Nagarkot hike, Nepal - Nov 25 - Nov 25, 2017
The contact with Ngima was very professional. He responded very expeditiously, answered questions, made proposals and showed flexibility.
However, the tour as such left much to be desired.
On the positive side, the team arrived at the hotel before the agreed time.
But then the announced guide was replaced by someone whose name I do not know until today.
This person was sporty, young and knew his way. But there was a communication gap.
I would have expected that at the start the guide provide... read more
Manaslu circuit trek - the ultimate off-the-beaten-path trek in nepal - 13 to 19 days, Nepal - Nov 13 - Nov 30, 2017
We had a fantastic time trekking the Manaslu Circuit with Lhakpa (guide) and Pasang (porter/assistant guide). It was our first time trekking in Nepal and Lhakpa and Pasang did everything they could to ensure that we were safe, and enjoyed our time trekking. They are amazing guides and people and we would highly recommend them for anyone planning a trip to Nepal (from beginner to advanced), as they are very experienced, highly skilled, and knowledgable. Ngima was also excellent to... read more
Gokyo ri trek - the best of khumbu, Nepal - Oct 28 - Nov 13, 2017
We had a fantastic time on our trek to Gokyo Ri and over Renjo La. From the time we landed in Kathmandu we felt safe and very well cared for. Naresh was a wonderfully thoughtful guide and we couldn't have asked for a better experience trekking through the mountains with him. The views of Mt. Everest and the other 8,000m peaks from Renjo La were even better than advertised. The lodges in Lungden and Thame were especially comfortable and welcoming, with the best Sherpa stew and momos in the region.
Nar, phu and annapurna circuit with tilicho, Nepal - Nov 2 - Nov 20, 2017
Mads was very responsive when I was in the process of booking my trip. My guide and porter, Chhiri and Suppa (sp?) were a 10/10 and I will most definitely request their services in the future. Chhiri's knowledge of the mountains were above and beyond expectations; he was able to provide the most amazing and memorable trek and I cannot thank him enough for my experience.
Three passes trek - the ultimate 19-day trek in the everest region of nepal, Nepal - Nov 6 - Nov 25, 2017
Everything about this trip, from planning to the actual trip itself, was wonderful.
Mads was extremely responsive to my every questions. I gave him the date range and what I wanted to do, and he planned everything else for me.
Our guide for the trip, Chhepal, was very experienced, knowledgeable, caring, and fun to hangout with (especially important since our trip was 20 days long). He took care of all the details, from airport check-in, finding a capable porter for our entire trip, to... read more
Honeymoon, Nepal - Nov 6 - Nov 17, 2017
We loved our trip! It was a great balance between tea houses and camping in remote areas. The views were spectacular and our guide, Gelu, adjusted our itinerary to suit our hiking speed (faster than initially planned for). The porters were knowledgeable and helpful the entire way and everyone seemed to be having a genuinely good time which put us at ease and made things even better!
Pangboche to heli tour, Nepal - Nov 19 - Nov 24, 2017
Excellent in all regards. Sherpa Pemba and our Porter were terrific. Good guys, set a good pace for trekking. And are extremely knowledgeable. I can't imagine having better weather. We clearly picked right time of year for this experience. The lodges we stayed were perfect for the experience as well. Just enough amenities mixed with just enough "roughing it" as one would expect on a trek of this nature. From local cutlure, to wildlife, bouncing across suspension bridges,... read more
