Is It Safe to Visit Nepal After the 2015 Earthquake?

Private Three Passes Trek · Nepal - Oct 16 - Nov 4, 2019

Traveler: Peter H. - Local specialist: Ngima Dorji Sherpa

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.

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. Web searching had led us to the kimkim site and we had an absolutely trouble free time organising and booking our trek. Ngima Dorji Sherpa was always able to quickly answer our questions and provided us with flexible booking options which led to us taking a private trek at only a little extra cost.

We were well looked after from the moment we were met at Kathmandu airport. Dafuri was a wonderful guide. He quickly summed up our walking experience and interests and was able to take us through the Three Passes without mishap and with a few extra side trips thrown in as well. I particularly enjoyed the day walk we had from Chukhung to Island Peak Base Camp via Imja Tsho - the lake that is forming behind terminal moraines and which could catastrophically fail and lead to severe flooding downstream.

I also enjoyed our two nights at Gokyo with a walk up Gokyo Ri on a perfect sunny afternoon followed by a day walk beside Ngozumba Glacier to Gyazumba where there are wonderful views of Cho Oyo, Everest, Makalu and everything in between. We crossed Renjo La the next day. What a feast!

So thank you Dafuri for your strength, good humour and expert knowledge of the track and accommodation options. We also enjoyed learning from you about Nepalese customs and society. Bimba, you were also so strong and helpful.

Our trekking trip to Nepal was a wonderful experience and we cannot thank enough Ngima and his team for making it such a success.

Awesome experience!
Ngima was extremely helpful in helping us organizing the logistics and planning our a trip tailored to our needs. He was always prompt in reply all our questions before the trip.

As soon we landed at Kathmandu, we've been very well taken care of by Lapka, who helped us with transportation pick-ups and preparation of our EBC trekking trip The day before the start of our trek, Ngima came to our hotel (along with our trek guide) to do a detailed briefing of our trekking trip and logistics making sure that we're comfortable with everything. And btw, the SUV arranged from Ngima's company for our land-transfer/transportation is a pretty new vehicle, which was nice because due to the Kathmandu local airport maintenance, the flight to Lukla (starting point of our EBC trek) can't be from Kathmandu but Ramechapp instead, which is 4hrs drive away on windy, sometimes a bit rugged, mountain roads.

On the trek, our guide Angolo took care of us very well. We have some relatively heavy camera equipments (lenses and such) and he helped with carrying those in his back pack all along, and even carried my wife's backpack when she wasn't feeling too well one day.
After the trekking, we spent a couple more days in Kathmandu to unwind. And before we leave to the airport, Ngima came to our hotel for de-brief of our trip before dropping us off to the airport

Overall we are very satisfied with the trip and I would highly recommend Ngima to whoever wants to arrange a trekking trip in Nepal!

My guide, Pemafuti, and porter were both incredible during my trek and made me feel comfortable during my trip. There were experienced, friendly and allowed me to use one of their trekking poles when mine broke.
Poon Hill was by far the most memorable part of my trip.
I would highly recommend doing the itinerary that I followed, as I covered so much in such a short amount of days. I felt accomplished yet I didn’t feel I rushed any part of my trip.

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, especially on the steep and sometimes slippery descents. Of the three passes, the Kongma La Pass was definitely the most challenging, though this may in part been due to the fact it was the first pass we did and I was not as acclimatized. I would highly recommend this trek to anyone looking for a challenging trek in Nepal.

Ghorepani poonhill trek · Nepal - Aug 11 - Aug 16, 2019

Traveler: Kiin K. - Local specialist: Tashi Sherpa

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.

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 hands.

Our original plan had been Pikey Peak, but a mudslide on the road forced us to change plans before we even arrived at the trailhead. Ngima's team (Nepal Myths & Mountain Trails) correctly assessed the situation, discussed options with us, and recommended the alternate plan (Ghorepani + rafting) that we agreed with.

Even though we chose to go during monsoon season, we were lucky in that the weather was good enough for us to get great views of the Annapurna range from multiple locations, including Ghorepani, Poon Hill, Tadapani, and Ghandruk!

Trekking in the Himalayas was more physically challenging than I expected, primarily due to the prolonged steepness, and when my knees and thighs were not quite up to the task, Tashi and Ang Gelu were there to help carry my backpack, which made a huge difference. However, our group did get separated once when some of us got too far ahead, but it ended up being a merely temporary inconvenience due to the skills and knowledge of our guides.

Ngima and his team were very flexible in letting us stay an extra day in Pokhara so that we could see some of the sights there before heading back to Kathmandu. They also arranged a white-water rafting trip after we had to turn back from Pikey Peak in just a single day, which was definitely a highlight. Their ability to set up this whole trip for us was impressive.

We had fun playing cards with our guides during the evenings in the tea houses, as well as meeting other travelers from around the world. The trek was very comfortable, and we had ample time in the evenings to relax.

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. Communications leading up to the trip were clear, prompt and informative.

For the trek itself Ang Gelu was attentive and patient with us and clearly showed his professionalism and experience. We always felt safe and well cared for. Gelu was also flexible when we decided we wanted to stay longer at higher altitude. Kunga constantly greeted us with a smile and carried our bags to our door. When we weren’t trekking, both of them made sure we were well fed, comfortable and always had hot tea when we wanted it.

The trek itself was fantastic. We were worried at the start since there was a day and a half section on a road under development (on which, the government forbids tourists transportation). That being said, once you’re past it, it’s pure bliss and awe. I’m hard pressed to pick a favorite section as the whole thing varies with each elevation specific layer of ecosystem. All I can say is I would absolutely recommend it. I already have many times!

Ngima set us up with a driver and a guide to show us the sites in Katmandu. As we exited the car at the airport, Ngima wrapped us both with white scarfs, for safe travel and good luck.

Kimkim might be a bit more expensive than other operators.. but worth it if you want peace of mind and professionalism.

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.

The accommodation on the first night in Nagarkot was particularly nice.

We also enjoyed the cultural tour of Kathmandu with our guide Surendra, He showed us around Darbar square and Patan among other places and told us the interesting historical background of each site!

Finally, our trip coordinator (Tashi), was great. He picked us up from the airport and checked in regularly to make sure we were enjoying things. He also provided a lift back to the airport and gave us his blessings at the end of the trip which was nice!

From my experience, I would highly recommend this company!

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.

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, kind, and obviously well-known and liked by many in the city (everywhere we went he was greeting and shaking hands with other tour guides)! We learned a lot and would recommend all first-comers to Nepal to experience Kathmandu with a guide. The driver organized by Ngima was also wonderful and made moving around the city easy.

After sightseeing, we departed from Pokhara for the Poon Hill Trek. We were accompanied by Chhongba (guide) and Dawa (porter). Both of them ensured all our needs were well taken care of. At times, Chhongba seemed a bit checked out and spent a large amount of time on his cell phone. (Cell service appears uninterrupted for Nepalis with national coverage along this trek, which is great for safety but hearing the guides’ YouTube videos and music at teahouses took away from our desire to disconnect.) Chhongba was willing to answer the questions we asked him, but he offered relatively little information on his own. Next time we would advocate to cover more miles per day; we ended up at the teahouses and in Pokhara by 1pm the last three days of the trek and would have liked to spend more time walking each day. The trek is BEAUTIFUL, and we enjoyed every minute on the trail. Overall, Chhongba and Dawa were kind and helpful on our trek and they allowed us to relax and not worry about the details. We had a stressful exit from Nepal due to delays on Yeti airlines, and Chhongba, Lakpa (Ngima's son), and driver in Kathmandu were essential to helping us make our international flight in time.

Overall, it was a great experience!! We will highly recommend kimkim, NMMT and Nepal to friends and family. We will definitely be back to do another trek (hopefully Everest Base Camp) and would book with kimkim and Ngima again.

The visit to Pashupatinath was an experience I wil never forget, made even more memorable by our excellent local guide ,Prajwol, what an interesting man, his memory for facts and figures is second to none, he explained so much, with so many interesting facts, he even took us to a great place for lunch, on both days out with him. The ancient villages of Bungamati and Khokana, were quite a contrast to Kathmandu, but once again, made so interesting, and stress free thanks to Prajwol and our amazing driver, who at all times remained calm, and very pleasant.
I can not thank Tashi and the team from NMMT, and Prajwol for their attention to detail, humour and seemingly bottomless knowledge.
Highly recommend, and so many thanks for creating this adventure for me.

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.

Once we arrived, he was there with the driver to pick us up. Explained the entire next steps and made sure everything with our hotel was fine. He even organised a "to-go" breakfast from our hotel for the next morning at 4:30am (since heading to Lukla that morning). That morning he brought us to the airport, explained the process, and kept in contact with our guides during the whole trek to make sure everything was running smoothly. Once we flew back to Kathmandu from Lukla, we had a few more hours until our next flight, and he used the time to show us another beautiful site, and we got to enjoy a nice tea together there. His detailed dedication to the guests is impeccable and highly appreciated. I've never felt so well taken care of by any tour company.

The trek itself was stunning and perfectly planned. We arrived in Lukla around mid-morning (after a few flight delays). Our guide, Mingma Gyaljen, and sherpa, Fu Renji were waiting for us once we arrived. They then took us to a Teahouse for a quick tea and introductions. From there we hiked to Phadking. It was a beautiful hike. There we spent the evening at the Khumbu Traveller's Guest House. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, and made sure we had everything we needed (tasty food too). The second day we hiked up to Namche Bazaar. What a beautiful hike! It gets a bit uphill the last part, so you need to take your time. Both guides were very attentive and adapted to our speeds when needed. During the hike up, we stopped at the Sagarmatha National Park's 3.140m view point to get our first view of Everest. Once at Namche, we stayed at the Shangrila Lodges right in the middle of the town with a great view of the area. It was pretty cold up there since it was January but we kept warm at the fire, and our guide made sure we had enough blankets. The host made some amazing homemade Momo's for us too! The next morning, our guide woke us up at 6am as the sky was clear so we could hike up further to see the surrounding mountain peaks. We hiked up about 30minutes to 3.555m to get a perfect view of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Tabuche and Amadablam and many more. We are so grateful to our brilliant guide and sherpa for suggesting it and taking us there! They both made sure we really enjoyed ourselves the entire trek.

Following that we hiked back to Lukla. There we stayed at the Sonam Lodge. The hosts made us feel like part of the family, and even came with us to the airport to make sure we had no issues.

The entire trip was more than any of our expectations and we definitely want to go back for a longer trek with the Tashi team. Thank you to Tashi, Mingma Gyaljen, Fu Renji, and the Teahouse hosts for the amazing experience!!

My guide made the trip extremely fun, and we even diverted from our itinerary and took side trips to see a Buddhist monastery and hot springs. I highly recommend trekking to ABC. The trek is moderate in difficulty and we trekked 5-7 hours each day, which was just right. The different landscapes that you cross are spectacular, from rhododendrum forests, bamboo forests, waterfalls, streams, and of course the snow capped peaks. Everything was great! I would highly recommend Nepal Myths and Mountain Trails as the outfit to choose when trekking in Nepal. I definitely want to go back!!

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 (that is, climbing up and down) through varied scenery, from lush bamboo forests to mountain-flanked snowfields, stopping for a leisurely mid-morning tea and lunch along the way. Most days, we reached our resting lodge for the night by around 3pm, and the rest of the day was spent relaxing, reading, chatting with fellow travellers, all over a pot of brewed tea. It is worth pointing out that I went in winter, meaning the flowers are not in bloom, but, in my opinion, that is more than made up for by the fact that there is a smaller crowd on the trails and in the lodges. The visual highlights of the trek are undoubtedly the 7000s-8000s giants, whether they be shyly peeking out from behind lesser mountains (or hills, as they call them in Nepal), laid out in a stunning vista at Poonhill, or subsequently transformed into a panoramic amphitheatre at Annapurna Base Camp. For an urbanite like me, the chance to slow down one’s pace, escape from the bustle and grind – not to mention digital spam – of city life, and just live in the moment, all the while soaking in nature, was incredibly rejuvenating.
Credit must also go to my guide Pemba and my porter Pasang, who attended to my every need – voiced or otherwise (requests for extra blankets, tea and meal orders etc). Importantly, I did not once felt rushed, Pemba encouraging me to take my time, set my own pace and just enjoy the journey. (Too many trekkers seemed to forget to do just that, too focussed as they were on the endpoint.) Pemba has also been very helpful in customising the itinerary on the fly based on the pace we were making. Besides all these, through the chats we had, and their easy-going, quick-to-laugh nature, I felt I had experienced a bit of Nepali culture and Sherpa warmth and good cheer. Pemba and Pasang have grown to be friends to me, whom I hope to trek with again in future.

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 a dusty road that could have been anywhere. No nature, no views and nothing to experience.

To compare, our walk last 2 km to Balthali was amazing all the way. Nature, bridge, village and views. I recommend this route, just make it longer.

Namobuddha and Balthali was the highlight of my tour, so I recommend this combination. Namobuddha was so great. In fact this was my own idea, and we had to discuss a lot to include it. I think it’s a bit strange that you don’t recommend it to everybody.

Dhulikhel was nothing to see, as far as we experienced.

Bhaktapur was very nice. Wonderful atmosphere. Patan also perfect as 1 hour stop.

Bungamati and Khokana- a bit disappointing. As suspected, these were small cities, not country side villages as I would say Balthali is.

Kathmandu tour was as good as it can be. Combined with Bhaktapur and Everest flight, a perfect first day.

I will also recommend others to stay more than one night other places than Kathmandu.

Everest flight was great in itself, but I got the worst possible seat.

I asked my contact months ago, and also just after payment, to reserve a good seat for me, as was recommended by many on TripAdvisor. He told me there are no fixed seats, just make sure to enter the plane early and sit on the left side. So I did, but then I realized that we all had specific seats. And I got the worst in the entire plane, beside the rotor on the right side. Probably because everybody else had reserved better seats.

I wasn’t very happy with that during the flight, since the rotor were blocking my sight and pictures. Fortunately the hostess took some nice pictures of Everest for me, so the memories after are OK.

It was the trip of a lifetime and the service and care that we received from everyone in Nepal was the best I've ever experienced. Prajwol and Tashi had thought of everything and we were incredibly well looked after every step of the way.
Nepal is an amazing country due to the cultures, food, landscape, wildlife and most importantly the people. Prajwol had arranged everything for us before we left Scotland so all we had to do was enjoy ourselves and have our minds blown by a truly unforgettable two weeks.
I can thank or praise the guys enough. Thank you Kimkim!

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 was too much or inconsequential.
During the briefing, the night before we left, the group of three Australians and three Americans instantly bonded - a great sign for the upcoming 7 days of trekking and transport.

Our main guide, Lhakpa, set a steady, manageable pace which managed our energy reserves throughout the trip.

The first part of the trek was to get to Ghorepani and Poon Hill. This is clearly a popular destination, as the 3,400 stairs were never empty, and the dawn viewing was inundated with tourists. None of that mattered: we were entertained and looked after the whole way; and the views were spectacular!
Throughout the entire trek, both the food and the views just got better every day.

Out of the six of us, two suffered from upset bellies at various points in time and we all had our own special pace to keep us going. This meant that Lhakpa needed to discuss with the group new plans each day. For example, one day we shortened our hike, and on another we pushed on further than we thought possible. This would not be possible with an experienced guide!

Lhakpa also seemed to be able to get us the best of everything! From mountain-side seats on our flight, to top-floor rooms in Ghorepani, to double rooms in overcrowded lodges.

It is not just walking, eating and sleeping involved in trekking. We often discussed local politics and religions in an effort to understand the local culture, something that our guides were only too willing to educate us on. Old customs, overthrown royalty, yaks and naks, yeti and wildlife (leopards, tigers and wolves) were everyday conversations.

The highlight of the Khopra Danda Trek was the day we hiked to Kaire Lake, at 4660m. We set off before dawn and returned as the sun was setting. It was a truly humbling experience to climb over 1,000 metres amongst some of the biggest mountains in the world. To reach Kaire Lake, a holy place for both Hindu and Buddhist, was not only exhilarating, but also calming.
Out of all the people who stayed at Khopra Lodge, we were the only group to make it, to which I credit our wonderful guides.

I would book another trek through Ngima again, no doubt at all. And if you made it through this review, then you should book one as well!

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 hiking peak season.

We were personally fetched from the airport and directly sent to the hotel by Ngima in Kathmandu. The hotel room we stayed in Kathmandu is very well maintained and spacious. I observed that Ngima and his team really tried to get the best accommodation possible. This is also evident during the trek. Of course, you cannot expect the same level of cleanliness and comfort on mountain tea houses, but the accommodations we’ve stayed usually had the basics (i.e. comforter, hot shower, bottled/filtered water, wi-fi, power outlet, etc. – may or may not be chargeable). Some of the tea houses we stayed-in also provided remarkable view of snow capped mountain peaks which personally is the best place to sit and have a sip of piping hot coffee/tea in the morning or afternoon.

The night before we departed for Pokhara, Ngima and Ang Gelu – our guide met and briefed us on what to expect and see during the trek. Upon arrival to Pokhara airport, we were met by our porter (who is also named Ngima) and traveled by land for 2 hours until we reached the jump off point for trekking. Both Ang Gelu and Ngima were friendly and competent. Ang Gelu was very patient and let us trek at our own pace. We never felt that we were rushed and pressured. He regularly asked if we were already tired from walking and needed rest. We were always given morning and afternoon tea/coffee breaks which we really appreciated. Ngima, though shy, is very strong and funny. Ngima and Ang Gelu are both knowledgeable on the mountain trails and are always ready to answer our trivial questions. Every night during dinner, Ang Gelu provides a quick briefing for our next day activity. He also gets our dinner and breakfast preference in advance to ensure that we can have our meals on time.

Our flight back home was also re-scheduled few hours later so once we returned to Kathmandu, Ngima met with us again and helped buy some stuff to bring back home. He even accompanied us to Boudhanath temple to have different experience of Nepal apart from trekking. This was not part of our original itinerary but Ngima gladly accompanied and sent us back to Kathmandu Airport. He even provided some souvenir to for us to keep.

Over all, we are very satisfied with the trip provided by Ngima and his team. The trip has a very personal touch and makes you feel at home away from home.

Mardi Himal Trek · Nepal - Oct 14 - Oct 21, 2018

Traveler: Maria O. - Local specialist: Ngima Dorji Sherpa

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.

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 perfectly geared to our fitness levels. Challenging in places but most definitely achievable.
Of course, reaching Pikey Peak's summit at sunrise was awesome and we had a perfect view of the surrounding mountains.
What goes up must come down and this was equally a challenge with steep, rough, loose pathways underfoot but the guesthouse in Jumbezi with it's hot shower was most welcome. The following day was a rest day were we visited the Thuptenchholing Monastry which, along with the early morning summit climb, was one of the highlights of the trip.
The rest of the trekking was relatively easy following the ridge towards the final destination of Phaplu.
Our Guides and porters were all amazing but a special mention to Lhakpa who was the perfect trekking partner. Extremely patient with the slower members of the group, great fun with the teenagers and a master at Rummikub !!!
Ngima once again came to meet us on our final evening before his transport took us to the airport .
Thankyou everyone!!

Lower Mustang Trek - 6 Days · Nepal - Oct 19 - Oct 28, 2018

Traveler: peter b. - Local specialist: Prajwol Shrestha

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.

Our guide in Kathmandu was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs , giving us lots of free time to enjoy particular spots when we wanted to. Our driver in Kathmandu was very professional and punctual making the visit from sites to sites a breeze in a very busy and someyimes chaotic city.
Pema Futi , our guide in the Annapurma was very professional and friendly , making sure we enjoyed our treck and were well fed and comfortable in the tea houses we staid in. Everything in the trip was organised very professionally and I highly recommend Ngima's company Nepal Myths Mountain Trails to anyone wanting to have a memorable and wonderful trip in Nepal.

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 conditions but alternative travel was arranged via helicopter thanks to Ngima (the tour group manager ) who has been organizing trips for years and has developed a lot of useful contacts in such circumstances.

I would say there are a lot of advantages in traveling with a guided group I believe they get more of a Priority when it comes to booking ahead in teahouses etc (another thing you wont have to worry about). And as mentioned above if transport becomes an issue alternatives can be looked at instead of sitting at an airport waiting for a few days in hope that the whether will clear up.

I would recommend our tour group due to their experience with dealing with any problems that might arise during the trip, and I believe paying a little extra for that is definitely worth paying for.

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 caring attitudes we would not have such an amazing trek. Our guide exceeded all our expectations, he was on time, organized and always made sure we were well fed and with everything we needed ready to begin our day without any complications. He always happily answered all doubts and concerns and would stop along the way to show and explain interest points which made the trek a beautiful cultural experience. At Tengboche he was kind enough to guide us inside the monastery show in us how to proceed with blessings. We cannot thank him enough! We would love to trek again in Nepal some day and definitely would do it with Ngima’s company, this trip was just perfect. Thank you so much for everything done to make sure we had a great trek! Hope I’ll see you guys again soon!

Kimkim performed great on providing a safe and reliable platform to connect with great team, perform payments safely and communicate effectively right from planning the trip, during the trip and even after the trip had concluded.
Ngima was great at communicating promptly from trip planning till the time, I left Nepal. After the commencement of trip, his first priority was safety of all the team members (including staff), followed by making sure, trip starts and ends on time. Really appreciate, his efforts to organize helicopter rides to and from Lukla, when the weather was not good for flights. He made sure, tour members were well during the trip. Last, but not the least, Ngima is great human trying to return his community in the form of medical camps, planning hospital construction etc.
Mingma and Chhering were great in making sure, we stayed in good tea houses, ensure we get great food, ensure everyone was feeling good during trip. Dinner time briefings provided us with overview of whats to come the next day. Being not very fit, I was slow. Both of them made sure, either of them was with me to make sure, I was ok and provide motivation to keep going.
All the three porters were great, in promptly moving our bags and always smiling and being happy.
It definitely felt like a family for the three weeks of trip.
I would like to make special mention of "Show you care" attitude, where Ngima's team promptly communicated with my wife and confirmed my wellbeing, while she was stressed for not hearing from me for few days.

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). People along the trail were also extremely friendly and it was interesting hearing stories from all walks of life. Highlight of the trip was definitely the view on top of Kalapatar - it's a difficult early morning hike that takes you above the elevation of EBC but the view was worth every step.

Highly recommend this trip to anyone who is even remotely considering it and definitely book through Ngima! Unforgettable experience all around and can't wait to go back!

A prospective client should also look into the huge array of social work and local support that these guys do. They operate a direct hands on approach and on top of ad-hoc/ regular donations, part of your trek. climbing money will find a very good home in improving the lives of the people of the lower Khumbu

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 fun and laid back guys, and worked so naturally to match my level of physical fitness. By only the end of the first day trekking, we had all become trekking buddies!

The trek itself had some lovely moments, and a few great views of the mountain range, but nothing extraordinary. Much of the trail is comprised of pesky loose rocks (terrible on the knee and ankle joints) and almost the entire trail is full of animal droppings. (think bad smells) Next time I'd like to try the higher elevation treks.

Nepal has a way of challenging everyone, and there is nothing better than feeling like someone is always watching your back when you are most seriously challenged physically and mentally.

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.

The impression was of an efficient, experienced team who can deal with anything that crops up. We were not disappointed. Tashi and our guide Pemba welcomed us and personally I felt in good hands from the word Go. Our endearingly cheeky, lively, careful guide Pemba Sherpa and warm-natured assistant guide Dendi Sherpa took assiduous care of us on our fabulous 7-day trek, always observing how we were coping and adjusting pace or route accordingly and with respectful grace, shown clearly when one of our group unfortunately had a gastric reaction early on in the trip. They were always there, endlessly good-humoured and supportive. Pemba had to make some considered decisions on our return route, given road closure times due to the current massive Chinese road construction. Our two excellent, nimble porters were smiling and good-natured. We also appreciated the extra time Pemba took to guide us on our "free" day in Kathmandu at the end, when we were lucky enough to visit sites on Buddha's birthday. Although we were sad not to meet Ngima after all our communications with him, he had ensured we were well cared for in his absence (doing good works in his home village). Many thanks, NMMT.
