Originally from Australia, I've been travelling for 15 years and found myself coming back to Nepal time and time again. These days Kathmandu is home and I get to show people around this incredible place, introducing our very talented local guides, Sherpas and people along the way who make each and every visit to Nepal unique and special.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"Everything Nepal! Cultural visits, trekking tours, mountain biking, relaxation and adventure: everything in between or a combination of them all! My specialty areas mostly stick to the path - you won't find every man and his dog there, but you also won't need your expedition suit. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"After travelling to Nepal in 2010 and having an awesome experience, I started think that that's what I wanted to 'do'. Like what I REALLY wanted to do. Show people around an awesome place and send them home happy. It turns out that the company I booked my tour with in Nepal not only delivered an awesome tour but also had interesting recruitment techniques. After filling in a post-trip feedback form I mentioned in an email that I was interesting in a change of career and I think tourism is it. The response:
"So, when do you want to start work?
WOW! After recovering from the moment that my heart skipped a beat I had a million questions - but what work? And where? How does that even work?
A year later I returned to Nepal, to the company that I had toured with the previous year and here I still am!
Moral of the story - be careful travelling with us, you might never leave! ;)"
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Probably my most memorable travel experience, strangely, was right at home. Growing up in Australia, our family hosted many exchange students and each time we had a new international 'brother' or 'sister' to stay for a year, we not only got a new member to our family, but we also got to know all about where they came from. Discovering the delights (and dislikes!) of things such as Thai fish sauce and herbal tea from southern Brazilian were certainly memorable and I now have 'family members' all over the world!"

Incredible Manaslu · Nepal - Nov 5 - Nov 19, 2019
We had the most incredible Manaslu trek! It was brilliantly organised by Amanda who was incredibly informative and remained undaunted by our endless questions and changes to the itinerary. Our guide Sonem was just amazing and could not have been more caring and supportive. She really looked after us, trying so hard to secure the best accommodation and manage our expectations, checking the food and the kitchen at the tea houses, often cooking for us herself. She was so full of energy fun... read more
Nepal & Muldai Trek · Nepal - Oct 29 - Nov 5, 2019
This was our first time using KimKim but it has been a very positive experience and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others. Himalayan Trails were our tour agent and from the outset they were nothing but efficient helping us to plan exactly what we wanted from our trip. Amanda was quick to respond to any queries and provided lots of additional useful information to ensure we were well prepared in advance. The accommodation we had was full of character and in traditional Nepali style... read more
A most memorable adventure. · Nepal - Oct 18 - Nov 5, 2019
From back home in Australia, our contact Amanda in Kathmandu was fantastic!
She was always readily available to help with all of our, (many) questions along the way. From accommodation and itinerary, to connecting us to a city guide, as well as our amazing trekking guide, Priscilla❤️, we couldn't be happier with all that was offered.
Amanda was professional, courteous and lovely and helped us to enjoy our trip of a lifetime, including playing her part in a secret marriage proposal at the... read more

Oooh we really enjoyed it! It was so impressive, such a beautiful landscape and country. The people are really friendly and the food was good. Fortunately we were lucky with the weather so the view was amazing. Tendu was a nice guide, he really took care of us.
The only little negative thing was that the driver didn't find our hotel where we stayed after the trekking tour. So we had to help him with google maps. But it can happen, so we forgot it immediately when we arrived.

I found KimKim (and Amanda) totally on the ball, professional, and very competent. They responded to emails/questions very promptly and were very attentive to detail. The greeting and meeting in Kathmandu was helpful and the trip itself was excellent and tailored to our needs. Overall very pleased.
Nar Phu, Tilicho Lake and the Annapurna Circuit · Nepal - Aug 18 - Aug 31, 2019
Our Nar Phu and Manang trek was an unforgettable adventure. Especially the Nar and Phu part of the trek was outstanding with amazing landscapes and breathtaking views, great hikes, incredibly friendly and hospitable people who always had a great smile for us and a deep insight into local culture.
Our guides Mingmar and Dorje were supergreat and a lot of fun and would always offer support when needed. We spontaneously changed the second part of our trek due to my fear of heights, which was... read more
Week Below Everest and Village Visit · Nepal - Jun 19 - Jul 10, 2019
We just completed a 3.5 week vacation in Nepal that included stays in Kathmandu and other cities, tours of heritage sites and a national park and a trek in the Annapurna region.
We have traveled extensively in Europe and elsewhere and have always made our own arrangements, and have done very well. For a trip to Nepal you need professional assistance and we received exemplary service at every stage of our trip.

Nepal's Classic Highlights - 9 Days · Nepal - Apr 15 - Apr 23, 2019
We appreciate Amanda for her timely replies and great recommendations while working around our budget. She provided us with important tips such as the need for face mask due to dust and currency change opportunities. She made it a point to meet and greet us at the beginning of the tour and came to see us off at the end as well.
The entire trip was seamless. The guides and transport were on time. We especially appreciate that arrangements could be made for us to have the same guide and driver... read more
Khopra Trek Package · Nepal - Apr 18 - Apr 27, 2019
Mindu, bacenta and our porters were so helpful and lovely for our hike! We definitely would recommend using Kim Kim, Amanda and our guides in Nepal to other friends and family. Thanks again for helping organize this trip for us as we were all so time poor in the lead up. Big thanks to Amanda for always answering our questions quickly and seeing us pre and post hike! It was a nice touch that we all appreciated!
Weeklong trip/trek in Nepal · Nepal - Mar 29 - Apr 6, 2019
Amazing trip to Nepal: the Muldai + Poon Hill trek was an excellent choice for our group (3 adults + 4 children, ages 10-14): it offers breathtaking views of the Annapurna range; a good balance between trekking difficulty to relax/chill-at-the-teahouse time; a variety of trail sceneries: sunny mountain crests with long vistas; lush river valleys; occasional patches of snow; small villages; tiny teahouses and spectacular views from Poon Hill (Muldai was cloudy, but worth the early wakeup and... read more
Pikey Peak: A Short Trek with Great Views of Everest · Nepal - Mar 12 - Mar 16, 2019
I took the 5 day Pikey Peak Trek and the experience was amazing. Amanda and my guide/porter Rishi met me at my hotel the night before in Kathmandu. They went over my list of what I was packing, and gave me some valuable advice. They picked me up at my hotel and drove me to where we met our public transportation. The trek met all of my expectations. The views were amazing, and the tea houses were great. It was wonderful to submerse yourself in the Himalaya culture for five days. ... read more
Nepal Trek March 2018 · Nepal - Mar 8 - Mar 15, 2019
I have just returned from one of the most memorable experiences in my life. My eight day trip to Nepal, trekking in the Solukhumbu region was incredible. From my initial conversations with Amanda who helped me build a personalised itinerary, through to the planning, support, customer service and guide, the whole team were amazing. Every detail was covered and every question answered (always a bonus when you are traveling to a destination for the first time).
A special mention must go to my... read more
Balthali Trek via Panauti · Nepal - Feb 19 - Feb 23, 2019
I can highly recommend Amanda at Kim Kim/ Himalayan Trails and am very grateful for the care and thought she put into planning my trekking trip in Nepal. I felt that my needs were really listened to and that she made a conscious effort to suggest accommodation that she felt I would enjoy. Our guide Sumon was knowledgeable and engaging and helped to make the trip more interesting and tailored to our needs. Overall a very enjoyable experience and I would definitely use the company again - they are professional, attentive and experienced.
Nepal's Classic Highlights - 9 Days · Nepal - Dec 30 - Jan 13, 2019

National Park Chitwan Jungle Villa resort , our guide was DUKHI RAM CHOUDARY who had an excellent knowledge of the animals and village . He seemed very passionate and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the National Park and recommend people to go and visit anytime.
Khopra Danda Trek and Chitwan National Park Package · Nepal - Dec 28 - Jan 7, 2019
Amanda and Himalayan Trails were amazing at planning a customized trip for my honeymoon. It was such a memorable experience. Exactly what we needed although we couldn't explain it exactly at the start...she knew what we wanted.
And execution was flawless. A few things on my trip didnt work out (flights, altitude sickness) but Amanda managed to adjust the trip on the spot each time with no extra cost or headache.
Wonderful experience. Unique memories.
Kathmandu and Pokhara · Nepal - Dec 18 - Jan 3, 2019
We just completed our first vacation with Kimkim support - and we absolutely loved it! Our family of four travels a lot, and we consider ourselves pretty sophisticated travelers. Our trip was to Nepal where my wife and I lived for a year 15 years ago - so why Kimkim, you might wonder? I sure did, initially! I stumbled over their website and loved it (and Nepal info I can judge, I feel) and then started my online discussion with Amanda from Kathmandu-based Himalayan Trails. She was incredibly... read more
Pikey Peak Trek Package · Nepal - Nov 25 - Dec 2, 2018
If its your first time going to Nepal and you don't use Himalayan Trails, you are making a mistake. period.
Langtang Trek - 8 Days · Nepal - Nov 15 - Nov 22, 2018
8 day trek in Langtang Valley Nepal . Stunning and unforgettable ! Great Guide (Chhiring) and the organisation of everything was great. The Langtang Trek is perfect for a first timer but it is not easy, so make sure you have done plenty of walking before and have got yourself reasonably fit! Tips? take your own toilet roll, a face flannel for washing ( may not get a warm shower for several days), travel light and take layers of clothes not heavy jumpers, and one or two walking poles. Don't... read more
Pikey to Shivalaya Trekking, Mountain Biking and Rafting - 7 Days · Nepal - Nov 16 - Nov 23, 2018
We had a great time everything was very well organised and we didn’t have to think about anything. A special thanks to Naresh and Pemba for making our trek to Pikey Peak so easy and fun! It was a great trip and the Himalayas are truly beautiful and amazing. Highly recommend it to everyone!
Group departure - Manaslu Circuit Trek - The Ultimate off-the-beaten-path Trek in Nepal - 13 to 19 days · Nepal - Nov 3 - Nov 19, 2018
Guide was Rishi
Trip arranged with Amanda
Everything went as planned . Very professionally managed . Rishi was a seasoned guide who took care of everything
Panchase to Ghachowk Trek · Nepal - Nov 11 - Nov 22, 2018
I knew nothing about kimkim before booking our trek in Nepal. All started with an inquiry to which Amanda responded. She was fantastic - answering my countless questions, responding quickly to all our requests re suitable trek, etc.
After having everything planned one of our sons had an accident which meant we had to start from scratch and replan a trip that would cater for him. Nothing was a problem for Amanda and her suggested revised itinerary was perfect for us.
Our guide Tendu and our... read more
Nar Phu Valley Trek - 9 Days · Nepal - Nov 6 - Nov 14, 2018
As I only delt with Amanda online and very briefly in Nepal I gave 4 stars, this is not a reflection on her service as she was very helpful and easy to liaise with. I wanted to save the five star rating for our wonderful guide Sonam and porter Mik Ma (hope i spelt his name right). Everything was perfect. My first trek and apart from it hurting badly on my very sole it was awsome.. Josh
Balthali Village Trek - 5 Days · Nepal - Oct 30 - Nov 5, 2018
We were doing the EBC trail and had to be evacuated due to my husband getting high altitude sickness and sent a request on Kimkim for an alternative for the remainder of our stay in Nepal and got a promt response from Amanda with an excellent description of our trip and great service from her in all respects. We had a great experience, loved all the hotels on our route except one but I suspect that the options were rather limited as we booked our trip with almost no notice. The guide and porter were lovely, their English a little limited but that did not cause any problems.
A lovely time!
Gokyo Lakes Trek · Nepal - Oct 13 - Oct 20, 2018
We had a fantastic trek for our honeymoon and would highly recommend Amanda, our guide Tendu Sherpa and the entire Himalayan Trails team. Amanda was so responsive and helpful in planning our adventure - and went above and beyond to track down my bag that arrived late from our airlines and helicoptered it to the Himalayas to meet us a few days along our trek - really grateful! We have already recommended them to our friends!
THT and Langtang · Nepal - Oct 16 - Oct 28, 2018
The experience was great. We could have done with a rest afternoon and a better driver to return back with. However Wangchu was a great guide who was very knowledgeable and helpful
Nar Phu Valley Trek - 9 Days · Nepal - Mar 25 - Apr 3, 2018
The Nar-Phu trek was superbly organised, kimkim tours were great to deal with, Amanda was fantastic to deal with and very knowledgeable and our guide and porter were both brilliant and so helpful and fun to do the trek with. Would recommend the trek to anyone looking for a extremely interesting and varied out of the way trek and certainly would have no hesitation in recommending using kimkim tours.
Group departure - Manaslu Circuit Trek Group Departures - 15 Days · Nepal - Oct 8 - Oct 22, 2018
I joined a group departure on Manaslu Circuit and was very satisfied with everything, we had a great knowledgeable guide who made sure everything was ok, the porters were also great, the whole trip went smoothly, amanda was very helpful and always answered my question quickly, she also helped me to arrange a car which drove me to chitwan after the trek, no complains :)
Gokyo Trek · Nepal - Sep 12 - Sep 24, 2018
Had a wonderful time trekking Annapurna Base Camp and Muldai Peak with my awesome guide Nawang. Raj, Erin and Amanda were super helpful and accommodating as plans changed, and made all the logistics effortless. Truly an unforgettable trip!
Pikey Peak Trek · Nepal - Sep 22 - Oct 1, 2018
Hi ! We did the Pikey peak and Solu trek package. It was even better than we expected. Amanda our local specialist really understood what we wanted, I asked for a trek with the least amount of tourist and she delivered. We did not see any tourist until the end of the trek, so our entire trek was nature and the locals (Sherpa coulture). Very sweet people, warm and very hospitable. We stayed in tea houses and they were great. Our guide Pemba was really great, he knew his stuff well and was... read more
5 Days in Nepal: 5 Great Itineraries · Nepal - Sep 16 - Sep 21, 2018
The overall experuence was exactly what we hoped for.
Nice people, flexible when plans changed and had a lot to tell about places we visited.
We have done only 5,5 days in nepal, kthmandu to pokhara and some rafting in between an staying in a fantastisch riverside camp.
All perfectly arranged.
My only point of comment would be that the drive to and from the Famous Farm (which was fantastic to stay btw) was too long (due to the road conditions) related to the total time we where in Nepal.
Besides that, all perfect!
Muldai and Poon hill trek - Long · Nepal - Jul 28 - Aug 2, 2018
Mingma and the porters were lovely and very helpful, and I was grateful to them for flicking leeches off my shoes! It was a good route with lots of different and pretty immediate scenery, even if it was too cloudy to see the mountains. I was happy with the level of difficulty of the trek. I loved the first tea house in Ghandruk. I was a bit disappointed with the lack of views but had plenty of warning that this could well be the case in monsoon season.
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

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.
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

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!!
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
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!

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.

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
