This ten-day tour is a great option if you're short on time yet keen to see the Everest region. You'll spend your nights in the beautiful Himalayan lodge and your days either trekking or flying through the Everest region by helicopter. Kongde, the highlight of the trek, is a panoramic ridgeline perched about the Everest region that few trekkers get to visit.

Featured trips & expertise
In May 2015, Nepal was struck by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Many travelers are still wondering if it's safe to visit Nepal. The short answer is "yes". The earthquake has caused severe damage in certain regions, but the country is rebuilding and open for travel.
This high-altitude trek through Sherpa country brings you to the base of the world's tallest peak. You'll pass hilltop monasteries, Himalayan market towns, and craggy peaks as you follow in the footsteps of famous mountaineers —eventually making your way to the iconic starting point for all Everest expeditions. Begin and end in Kathmandu, and return in style via a helicopter ride.

We just came back from a wonderful 11 day trip to Nepal. This included the city of Kathmandu and a trek through the Khumbu valley. The trek was the most memorable part of the tour. Walking through these great mountains, meeting wonderful people, sharing their adventure stories and braving the chilly weather made every day enriching.

Amazing Pikey Peak Experience! · Nepal - Dec 15 - Dec 22, 2019
From start to finish our trip to Nepal was an authentic, well coordinated, and memorable experience that my sister, brother and law and I will cherish for years to come.

Our guide Pemba and local Sherpa accompanied us, providing local knowledge, expert guidance and companionship throughout. At each guesthouse that we stayed, we... read more

In October/November 2019 two sort of old Australians (>65 y.o.) with heaps of hiking experience undertook the Three Passes Trek with our guide Dafuri Sherpa and porter Bimba Sherpa.

Outstanding trip! · Nepal - Oct 12 - Oct 23, 2019
This trip was organised incredibly well. Tashi was able to factor in Kathmandu’s culture, a trek to Poon Hill and experience the jungle in Chitwan within 12 days.
Tashi continually replied promptly and would always help me with any questions and queries I had about the trip. He was friendly and professional when we met at the airport, and talked me through the trip and helped me find trekking gear.
My guide, Pemafuti, and porter were both incredible during my trek and made me feel... read more
3 Passes Trek · Nepal - Oct 1 - Oct 16, 2019
I completed the 3 passes trek in early October - an incredibly challenging and rewarding experience. Ngima (from Nepal Myths and Mountain Trials and Kimkim) was fantastic in tailoring the trek to allow me to complete it over a shortened time frame. He responded promptly to all my questions and requests and was even there to greet to me upon arrival at Katmandu and to see me off after the trek. My guide (Da Furi Sherpa) and porter were both experienced and friendly and were a great support,... read more

My first trekking on Poonhill with kimkim was fantastic from A to Z.
They managed all my itinerary according to my personnel schedual even though sudden circumstance happened due to heavy rain.
My guide, Mr. Angello and Pasang were really specialist to make me comfortable all the time even I was very bigginer on that.
In addition my coordinators, Mr. Tash and his father and his brother, they have absolutely professional attitude to their visitors.
Once again I sincerely would like to recommend someone who want to try trekking in Nepal to be with kimkim. You are never disappointed.
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Jul 14 - Jul 20, 2019
We highly recommend KimKim (with Nepal Myths & Mountain Trails) for trekking in Nepal. Our guides, Tashi and Ang Gelu, did a top-notch job in safely and comfortably guiding us on our 5-day family trek to Ghorepani and Poon Hill. These two guides were personable and complemented each other well (Ang Gelu knew the villages and trek a little better, but Tashi knew more English). It was clear that they had much experience hiking in Nepal and in the Annapurna region. We felt secure in their... read more
Khopra Danda trek · Nepal - Apr 18 - Apr 28, 2019
I travelled to Nepal for the first time with my 3 kids and 2 other young people. What a fantastic experience. Ngima was informative and helpful right from the word go. Tailored the trip to our needs as an extended family group and obviously chose a trek that suited our fitness. Everything went smoothly from the first airport pick up to our wonder guide Pemba and our porters.
Nepal itself was simply marvellous. A mix of the bustle and fun of Kathmandu to the trek on the Khopra Danda track in... read more

Nepal Trek in Oct or Nov · Nepal - Apr 27 - May 14, 2019
Our Manaslu trek and the detailed planning and attention we received was wonderful! We work with an outstanding team, organized by Ngima, his sons Tashi and Lakpa, guided by Ang Gelu and pampered by the herculean effort of our porter Kunga.
From the planning perspective Ngima and his Sons were outstanding, making sure we were picked up from the airpot, shown where to rent & purchase trekking equipment and in my case taken to the airport twice when there was trouble with my flight.... read more
Upper Mustang Trek · Nepal - Apr 28 - May 12, 2019
We had a fantastic time in Upper Mustang thanks to our guide Chhongba who did his very best to make sure we have a memorable experience. Especially the fact that we were able to alter travel plans half way through the trip has been much appreciated. We can without hesitation recommend the KimKim team to anyone who is looking for a well organised trip that is tailored to individual preferences.
Tengboche & Helicopter Tour - 7 Days · Nepal - Apr 26 - May 5, 2019
We had a wonderful experience in Nepal. Seeing the Himalaya’s were magical. Nguma set up our trip. He gave us an awesome experience. Definitely a trip of a lifetime. Although trekking through the Himalayas is challenging Ngima set us up with an awesome guide and porter. Our guide’s name was Ngima also. He did a great job of guiding us through the mountains with no altitude sickness. He was super nice and tried to help us at every turn. During our trip there was a cyclone that hit India.... read more
Pikey Peak Trek: A Short Trek with Great Views of Everest - 9 Days · Nepal - Apr 18 - Apr 27, 2019
Our experience with kimkim was very professional. All the logistics were prefect in regards to response time, flexibility in customizing the itinerary and even helping us with a separate personal trip by changing local flights!
The trek we did was in Pikey Peak.. so not many people going there. Was very quite trek and beautiful. Although we could not see the mountain ranges for most of the trek due to weather. Our guide Mingmar was very accommodating and the porter Pasang Sherpa blew my mind... read more
Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek: Nepal's Classic Trek - 8 Days · Nepal - Apr 30 - May 7, 2019
The entire trip was professionally run and well coordinated. Pasang was always available and extremely helpful. Lapka was great on the ground, our guide Pemba was brilliant and our young porter Pasang was really nice too. Really enjoyed the trek, Pemba was extremely knowledgeable and patient with us, particularly as we are in our late fifties and not as fit as we once were! The hotel manaslu was fine too, as were the tea houses - especially the food.
Balthali Village Trek - 5 Days · Nepal - Apr 17 - Apr 24, 2019
We did the 5-day Balthali trek with our guide, Ang Gelu Sherpa.

We were able to meet the locals, eat decent Nepali and continental meal options 3 times a day and had adequate accommodation at the tea houses.

Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Mar 24 - Mar 31, 2019
Kimkim connected my husband and I to Ngima from NMMT. We communicated via kimkim's easy online platform, and Ngima answered all our questions and suggestions in a timely and sensitive manner. Ngima's coordination of hotels, in-country flights, guides, drivers, trekking, and cultural tours were invaluable.
In Nepal, we did a day of sightseeing in Kathmandu to see Swayambhunath, Pashupatinath, and Patan Durbar Square. Our guide in Kathmandu, Kedar, was outstanding: incredibly informative,... read more
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Mar 12 - Mar 19, 2019
From been greeted at the airport, my guide, Tashi and driver set the standard of this trip, very high.
Our itinerary was not too manic, but ran like clockwork, with excellent driving, and time keeping, the manners were impeccable. We saw so much, hard to choose a favourite, for me , it was between an Everest Mountain flight, and rafting on river. trishuli.
The visit to Pashupatinath was an experience I wil never forget, made even more memorable by our excellent local guide ,Prajwol, what an... read more
Helambu Trek · Nepal - Mar 1 - Mar 9, 2019
KimKim connected us to Ngima from NMMT. We communicated via KimKim's messaging platform which was effortless. Ngima was able to answer all my queries and he did so in a timely manner. He also arranged everything for me which was really convenient. All I had to do was to book the flight. In Nepal, I did the Helambu Trek. I was accompanied by Lakhma (guide) and Pasang (porter). I only expected my guide to be able to converse in English, but Pasang could do it too and that was a bonus. Both of... read more
Namche trek · Nepal - Feb 24 - Mar 3, 2019
Was great to have Ngima attend to us during our pre-planning. He was extremely patient, prompt and informative with our queries in planning our tailored itinerary.
We were well taken care of from the moment we stepped into Kathmandu till we left. We definitely enjoyed ourselves thoroughly throughout the journey.
Highly recommended when planning a trip to Nepal!
Namche Bazar · Nepal - Jan 26 - Jan 30, 2019
Nepal in one word is......AMAZING! My husband and I were heading towards India for a wedding but wanted to make sure we could include at least a short trip to Nepal. Tashi and his team made it possible and we were able to see Kathmandu as well as hike up to see Everest.
Firstly, the whole organisation and process was incredibly easy. Tashi understood quickly what we wanted and organised it within days. His response time, even with the time difference, was within hours even.

Annapurna Base camp · Nepal - Jan 15 - Jan 25, 2019
I just returned from an 8 day trek to Annapurna Base Camp. It was outstanding! The whole process of booking was seamless. Pasang Sherpa was extremely responsive and customized my trip and made excellent recommendations including hotels. She checked in on me during my trip through my guide. I was greeted by my guide Lhakpa Chhetar Sherpa and Lakpa Sherpa, his colleague at Nepal Myths, at the airport. They are both so courteous and took me to my hotel on the first night in Khatmandu.

Thank you KimKim team for my bespoke tour of Nepal. Ngima organised my itinerary customising the places I wanted to visit.
Lakpa Thapa and Saraswoti were always on time to accompany me and fill in the details of the places I visited and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Nepal
Annapurna Base Camp Trek · Nepal - Dec 16 - Dec 28, 2018
I did a Poon Hill + Annapurna Sanctuary trek, travelling alone (besides my guide and porter). Incidentally, this was my first trekking experience. Prior to my trip, Ngima was very prompt in helping me craft (and re-craft a couple of times) an itinerary that suited what I wanted, as well as answering any queries I might have. He helped made planning for my trip as stress-free as it could possibly get, while still retaining autonomy over my plans.
A typical day on the trek involved walking... read more
Nepal in December · Nepal - Dec 15 - Dec 20, 2018
All in all It was a fantastic trip, and I’m very satisfied with your help during planning and the flexibility you were giving by changing one night from Kathmandu to Balthali. That change gave the highlight of the tour, Namobuddha and Balthali plus hike to Balthali. Great day.
Nagarkot itself was beautiful, but the hike from Sankhu was very disappointing.
Nice warm up thru the rice fields. Splendid ending with Mountain View’s in Nagarkot. But nothing to see and experience on the was. Just... read more
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Nov 24 - Dec 7, 2018
We had an AMAZING trip to Nepal!
Me, my wife and two daughters (aged 8 and 7) spent an incredible two weeks in Nepal on a trip arranged through Kimkim. We were met and looked after by the wonderful Tashi in Kathmandu at the beginning and the end of our trip. We completed a jaw-dropping 5 day trek in the Annapurna region with our first-class Sherpa guides Pemba and Cherring (these guys feel like family now - they were SO good with our kids!) followed by a few days in Pokhara and Chitwan... read more
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Nov 1 - Nov 8, 2018
All my expectations were met on this wonderful trekking experience arranged by Ngima. The lead guide, Lhakpa, was outstanding along with support team of two additional guides and three porters. All paperwork and transportation were handled flawlessly, the weather was perfect (not sure how this was arranged), and the experience unbelievable. It was truly refreshing for me to experience the sincere kindness, honesty, humbleness, intelligence, and general good feeling of the entire... read more
Group departure - Khopra Danda Trek - A great off the beaten path trek in the Annapurna region · Nepal - Nov 1 - Nov 8, 2018
I have a few requirements when I travel: I don't like to fight for space with loads of tourists; I like to see inaccessible or unusual places; and although I tend to travel alone, I like to be part of a group to share my experiences.
From the moment I asked my first question about Khopra Danda, I knew I was in good hands. To plan a holiday into the unknown requires complete trust in the company you deal with - this includes Ngima (the owner of NMMT), the guides and the porters. No question... read more
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Nov 2 - Nov 6, 2018
Ngima and his team has provided an amazing first time Nepal experience for us. We had a very long conversation via this portal as we cannot finalize our arrival/departure dates to/from Nepal, but Ngima was ever patient in waiting and answering all our inquiries. He was also very flexible in changing the itinerary according to our preference. He managed to arrange everything (itinerary, flight, permits, tea house booking, etc.) without any issues despite having a very short lead time on ... read more
Mardi Himal Trek · Nepal - Oct 14 - Oct 21, 2018
Our Sherpa Lhakpa was great and the porter was excellent. The trip was a good trip for us - not too hard. The accommodation along the way was mostly good apart from Low Camp and High Camp where the toilet facilities were poor and the fire/heater were not turned on at these places even though everyone was cold. The accommodation in Sidhing was brilliant.
It was great to be met and farewelled by Ngima - the parting gift was a lovely touch.
5 to 6 day trek · Nepal - Oct 19 - Oct 28, 2018
From the point of enquiry and putting together a personalised itinerary to the fruition of the trip the service has been five star.
Following a very late arrival we were met at the airport by a team member and taken straight to our hotel.
The following day we met with Ngima and Lhakpa who explained in full our next few days adventures.
Following a long car journey we arrived in Jhapre to begin our 5 day Pikey Peak trek.
We were a party of 2 adults and 2 14 year old boys and this trip was... read more
Lower Mustang Trek - 6 Days · Nepal - Oct 19 - Oct 28, 2018
The trip over all was fantastic. .Weather was great , food was very good and the mountains
are beyound, to be so close to Annapurna is a experience in its own.
The check in/out time in Kathmandu is 2pm we arrived at the hotel at 9.00, so i had to wait 2 hours
to get in my room. That was the only small hinderance of the whole tour. ( from Jomson/Pockara)
I want to thank everybody who was concerned for making this tour a unforgetable experience.
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Oct 15 - Oct 24, 2018

We chose to visit Kathmandu for two days , we then drove to Bandipur in private car, continuing to Pokhara the next day. We then did a three days treck with a guide and porter in the Annapurma, after which we flew back to Kathmandu.

Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Sep 29 - Oct 20, 2018
Overall I had an amazing experience trekking the three passes. Lots of amazing views, Our Guides Mingma and Cher Sherpa, kept us safe whilst our friendly porters helped transport the bulk of our stuff. I felt a little bad about porters carrying my things, but then I was made aware that it does give porters a job to earn money for them and their family and can be a gateway to becoming guides themselves.
We did have some transportation issues too and from Lukla because of poor weather... read more
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Oct 12 - Oct 19, 2018
This trip was really perfectly arranged by Ngima and his company, from flight arrangements to the incredibly good communication. We constantly felt well taken care of at all times. Ngima was in constant communication with our guide to make sure we were doing fine since my husband got the flu before the trip and I was afraid I would have to change our itinerary during the trek. I need to specially thank our guide Chhongba and our porter Dawa, they instantly became friends and without their... read more

Trek dates: Sept 30 - Oct 11
I had the most amazing trek to EBC with Chhongba. The itinerary was set at a good pace and they took care of everything on the trip - from booking hotels and ordering meals to helping me change my flights when my schedule shifted around.
The once-in-a-lifetime views did not disappoint as we were lucky enough to have clear weather throughout my trek (not a cloud in the sky when I reached EBC and Kalapatar).... read more
best you can do in 5 Days · Nepal - Oct 8 - Oct 14, 2018
Ningma and Lhakpa gave me an unforgettable week heli-trekking to EBC in just a week! The highlight was the stop at Kalu Pattar in brilliant sun - I was lucky with the weather which on a short trek can make a difference but NMMT did absolutely everything possible to make it the best experience with seamless booking and organisation at every stage and Lhakpa and I had a lot of fun being first into every teahouse! A prospective client should also look into the huge array of social work and... read more
Pikey Peak from Dhap - 10 Days · Nepal - Sep 27 - Oct 4, 2018
It was the most delightful and impressive experience from the moment I made first contact with the company to the moment I was dropped off at Kathmandu airport after the trekking trip, and every step in between worked out exactly as planned. All questions and concerns were quickly and fully addressed; attention to details was second to none.
My guide Phurba and porter Lakpa were the best I could have asked for. Not only were they excellent at what they were supposed to do, they were such... read more
