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.

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!
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
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
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!
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
Khopra danda trek - a great off the beaten path trek in the annapurna region, Nepal - Mar 31 - Apr 8, 2018
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
Mera peak trek, Nepal - Mar 19 - Apr 5, 2018
This was my second trip to Nepal. Booked with Nepal Myths and Trails Trekking/climbing Company. So Glad I did. Nigma Dorje is an absolutely amazing owner and operator of his guiding company.
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
Teahouse trekking in nepal, Nepal - Mar 11 - Mar 18, 2018
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
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
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
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
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
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!
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
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
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
Three passes trek - the ultimate 19-day trek in the everest region of nepal, Nepal - Oct 27 - Nov 17, 2017
We had a great time with our guide Karma Sherpa and our porter Buddha Rai.
They were supportive and friendly along the 16 days of the trek.
3 days kathmandu valley trek, Nepal - Nov 20 - Nov 22, 2017
We had a marvelous experience in Nepal. Our guide was patient, attentive with us and showed us beautiful spots in Nepal. He took us to great, local places to eat which were genuine and fresh.
We would love to come back to Nepal to explore more, and we would definitely book with kim Kim again and request our guide Lhakpa again!
Well done and thank you!
Short trip to pokhara, Nepal - Oct 31 - Nov 7, 2017
Had a great trip in Nepal . I was greeted by the driver and Ngima at the airport.
Ngima was excellent to look after me from beginning to end of trip.
Also, Lhakpa (Guide) and the porter was knowledgeable and very helpful through the trek .
I would like to recommend Ngima team to everyone !!
Three passes trek, Nepal - Oct 14 - Oct 30, 2017
We had an amazing trekking in the Everest region.
Our guide was a real care taking person, so he was not only guiding us the way, but made the whole trip a really good experience. When one of us was not feeling well he helped to make the trip as best as possible (changing the itinerary a bit). It felt like an all inclusive trip :).
Also the porter was amazing, seeing us struggling in some parts he was helping us to get up, even though he carried all of our luggage.
The views on this trek... read more
Upper mustang trek, Nepal - Sep 4 - Sep 17, 2017
One of the best trips I've had arranged with an agent and I've done +20 agent coordinated trips. Impressed with Kimkim from top to bottom.
It was an excellent trip by Ngima and his team. We had one day that was less than perfect due to our guide (Tshering) under estimating our hiking time (5 hours vs 12 hours) which led to a challenging and over strenuous day. Other than that the entire trip was excellent, including the two porters (Lale - excellent; Bikram - good).
Luxury trekking in the everest region - october, Nepal - Oct 14 - Oct 19, 2017
Ngima was fantastic
Short, easy trekking around pokhara, Nepal - Oct 4 - Oct 8, 2017
Booking on kimkim.com was easy and very convenient. All our questions were promptly answered and details about our trip were provided up front.
We would like to say thanks to Ngima and his team for arranging this amazing trip. Ang and Lakpar (guide and porter) were amazing guides and tended to our every need. Also, they were very patient with our hiking pace! They made sure we were comfortable throughout the trip and we felt safe all the way.
Khopra danda trek, Nepal - Oct 1 - Oct 10, 2017
Communication was easy and efficient. I felt that all my questions and concerns were taken care of in a timely and professional manner.
Ngima and his employees did a tremendous job taking care of us! They were always on time and easy to communicate with. They went out of their way to make sure we got to the airport and even all the way to the gate in a couple instances.
Pangboche to heli tour + bhutan, Nepal - May 21 - Jun 9, 2017
Although we never saw Ngima during our journey, his staff was on top of all aspects of our trip and everything went smoothly (except for the traffic in Katmandu, but even that was part of the "experience").
Nepal 2017, Nepal - May 15 - May 22, 2017
Our trip to the mountains of Nepal was great. It was well organized by Ngima, who was very responsive to the demands of the schedules of members of our group who were all coming and going from different parts of the world. He worked out a trip that made sense, mostly, and it was well organized, everything was thought out in advance and worked out, nearly, perfectly.
The only reason the trip was not perfect was that the weather interfered since we started with a flight to Lukla that was... read more
Upper mustang trek, Nepal - Apr 28 - May 15, 2017
This was a very expensive trip and several things could have been done better. I had payed for a full package but even then had substantial expenses towards drinking water 1-7 USD per liter depending on where on the trek, battery charging 4-6 USD per battery, hot shower 8-9 USD, WIFI 7 USD per day. These extra expenses are very particular to the area. I have never before experienced having to pay for all these things and. I am surprised that no-one has thought of informing of these extra... read more
Nepal trip, Nepal - Apr 10 - Apr 15, 2017
I was very impressed with the working of the website, it seemed very efficient and beautifully designed. In fact it was the design that first persuaded me to look further.
I would say it was really great. Ngima was extremely professional and gave me the impression that he was understanding all my demands. The trip was organised very well and I felt in capable hands the whole way. This was especially important as I had some medical issues that needed understanding in terms of trekking.
I think on these points you need something between Perfect and Good.
Short treks in the everest region - 5, 7 and 10 day itineraries, Nepal - Apr 14 - Apr 21, 2017
- Further details on accommodation type/options for better accommodation at a higher cost should be provided. some of the facilities at the lodges were maintained poorly
Family trek in the lower everest region, Nepal - Mar 5 - Mar 25, 2017
I am so very grateful that we stumbled on KimKim. From the moment we inquired with KimKim about a trek in Nepal and then ultimately connected with our local organizer, Ngima Dorji Sherpa with Nepal Mountain Trails in Nepal, we were very impressed with the responsiveness, organization and professionalism of our communications. I can not say enough positive things about our experience, especially with Ngima. Planning a trip for a family of four including a trek in the highest mountains in the... read more
Manaslu circuit trek, Nepal - Mar 12 - Apr 4, 2017
Our Manaslu Circuit trek in Nepal was everything I imagined it could be. Beautiful scenery, kind and interesting people, friendly and professional guide and porter, smooth logistics. Ngima Dorji Sherpa did an outstanding job for us arranging the trek, and was always responsive and accommodating. Tshering and Kaji, our guide and porter, kept a watchful eye on us on the trek and showed patience at every turn. I highly recommend this trekking agency.
As already mentioned, Ngima provided... read more
Nepal trek, Nepal - Mar 5 - Mar 24, 2017
We had a wonderful experience in Nepal with the help of KimKim and Ngima Dorji. KimKim helped plan the trek and answered lots of questions. Joost of KimKim gave us itinerary and hotel ideas, all of which were great. When we arrived in the Kathmandu airport, we were met by Ngima's son and later Ngima himself. During our entire 3 week stay in Nepal and throughout both of our treks, Ngima made us feel as if we were his only clients, even though he had many groups and trekkers there at that... read more

Ngima took care of all of the planning and everything worked out perfectly (apart from the weather!)
Culture and trekking, Nepal - Mar 7 - Mar 18, 2017
Ngima gave us a great service, make everything painless.
The guide and the Porter where really nice, they did a great job. Definitely we did love the experience
A challenging trek to annapurna base camp, Nepal - Feb 18 - Feb 25, 2017
We asked for a challenging trek- more or less two days in one- in the season at the end of the winter.
Our years long experience with Ngima Dorji Sherpa through Nepal Myths and Mountain Treks, and our guide, Karma Sherpa with whom I also are climbing many years, proved once more key to a successful and memorable week.
Ghandruk trek, Nepal - Feb 14 - Feb 16, 2017
My guide Lhakpa was a really sensitive and thoughtful man, gave me plenty of space on my own to walk and reflect but was also companiable and knowledgeable and that made the trip even more enjoyable.
He is really accomplished and personable and I would thoroughly recommend him.
Kathmandu-pokhara-nagakot sightseeing/mini hike trip, Nepal - Jan 14 - Jan 21, 2017
The trip couldn't be more perfect! Ngima ensured that everything went smoothly and even spent a fair bit of time with us. Our guide, Pemba was very knowledgeable and ensured we were safe and comfortable throughout our trek.
Booking it thorough kimkim was an easy and straightforward process. We love how we got a customised trip based on our interest and could communicate and plan everything with Ngima easily through the chat function.
We highly recommend kimkim and ngima's company as service and quality is top notch.
Manaslu circuit trek, Nepal - Nov 13 - Nov 25, 2016
Took great care in ensuring everything went smoothly
Ghorepani poonhill trek, Nepal - Nov 19 - Nov 26, 2016
We have been home for about one and a half weeks now. We are really happy with how our trip went. The views were stunning and I think that both me and Victor would like to return someday for a longer trek. Thank you for all the help. It would have been some much harder to do without you two.
Ngima and our guide Lhakpa were great and everything just worked.
Three passes trek nepal, Nepal - Nov 1 - Nov 17, 2016
I was grateful to have found a resource like Kimkim to go to. I was overwhelmed trying to find a reliable tour company in Nepal and having your recommendation took all the guess work out and that was really awesome.
Ngima was extremely responsive right from the start and was actively monitoring how our trip was going throughout. We got an excellent pre trip catch up and post trip meeting.
Khopra ridge trek, Nepal - Oct 27 - Nov 8, 2016
This was my first trip to Nepal, and my first trekking experience. Ngima and his staff took care of all the details. We were greeted on arrival in Nepal, which made us feel welcome and warm. In our initial meeting, we were introduced to Lhakpa, our guide for our 7 day trek. Lhakpa was a great guide. He was very patient and flexible. He was able to tailor our trek as we went according to our needs and abilities. After our trek, we decided we wanted to add an Everest mountain flight to... read more
Pikey peak, Nepal - Oct 29 - Nov 3, 2016
I have just returned from a 6 days Pikey Peak tour with Nepal Myth and Mountain Trails. HIGHLY recommended tour company! Very organized and professional company. The owner of the company, Ngima is very passionate and concerned about making the guest's experience a memorable one. My guide, Pembac did a great job giving me a lot of interesting information about mountain trails and culture of Nepalese people. These guys absolutely exceeded our expectations in every way. Thank you Nepal Myth and Mountain Trails!
Manaslu circuit trek, Nepal - Oct 14 - Nov 1, 2016
Really outstanding local agent, guide and porter and wonderful experience overall. The only thing that could have been better is for the route to start in Soti Kola and end in Dharapani because the itinerary as is included 2.5 days of walking on roads with jeeps whizzing by. By cutting these 2.5 days on the roads you could add a couple days exploring up high and keep to the same overall 16 day length. I don't blame the Nepalese for wanting more roads but I don't want to trek on them. Make... read more
Khopra danda trek, Nepal - Oct 9 - Oct 19, 2016
I guess my two suggestions would be: 1. You don't necessarily have to spend the night in Hile, especially when you have a car arranged to pick you up there. I guess for those that have a tighter schedule. 2. When you do stay overnight in Hile just as we did, in hindsight we would have had no problem to walk the next day to Biretanthi. I mean the car was perfect and we had I think the best driver of the whole of Nepal, yet it feels a bit like we bother the villagers and trekkers that did walk... read more
Everest three passes trek, Nepal - Jul 5 - Jul 23, 2016
Very professional agency, the guide was a very nice person, also the porter. Since my arriving they always were in contact with me, also the days I didn't plan with their agency. I definitely recommend Ngima's agency
Ghorepani / poonhill + tibet tour, Nepal - May 3 - May 17, 2016
The team at KimKim perfectly tailored our trip, and were very patient as me made numerous changes during the planning process. They were able to find a perfect mix of cultural and hiking interests that suited the interest of my father and I. It was great to be able to chat with people that were very experienced with the hikes and sites themselves which allowed for us to view the REAL Nepal and Tibet.
Ngima was very helpful during our trip. He was on-time for every touch-point and meeting,... read more
