Annapurna yoga & luxury trek - 11 days, Nepal - May 9 - May 28, 2019

Traveler: Ariel M. - Local specialist: Bishal Tamang

I can whole heartededly recommend working with Bishal and with the guide Sanu. The choice to use an agency wasn't one I came easily to. Historically, I've always thought it was better to do everything on your own, but in this case I've learned I couldn't be more mistaken. I was extraordinarily busy leading up to the trip and the choice to work with Bishal to ensure all the details were arranged was great.

I can whole heartededly recommend working with Bishal and with the guide Sanu. The choice to use an agency wasn't one I came easily to. Historically, I've always thought it was better to do everything on your own, but in this case I've learned I couldn't be more mistaken. I was extraordinarily busy leading up to the trip and the choice to work with Bishal to ensure all the details were arranged was great. Throughout the trip I realised how grateful I was that I could trust every thing was in place. (And it always was thanks to Bishal and the team.) When I look back on the trip now and consider what it would have been like not to have a guide I realise how much how much of Nepal I would have missed. Sure, I would have seen the views, but I would not have gotten to know the culture as well as I did. I also appreciated the small touches - pretty sure we were one of the few folks to have fresh pommegranate at ABC! Thank you to all at Blue Sheep!

Trip to nepal, Nepal - Apr 12 - Apr 21, 2019

Traveler: Alvaro P. - Local specialist: Sudarshan Shrestha

This trip was an amazing experience owing to the excellent organisation provided by Sudarshan before the trip as well as along it. In addition, the Guide was extremely helpful and was always ready to help, as he knew everything about the trek itself and therefore gave us all the help that we needed. To sum up, it was an incredible trip due to the organisation and help provided beforehand as well as for the “best in class” guide that came with us. So we definitely look forward to our next trek with them.

We found the trip really well organised and the KimKim team very helpful and adaptable if we needed something changing. The scenery was stunning and the accommodation was always comfortable. We received full board throughout and this was always of a great standard. Our guide was knowledgeable and ensured our safety throughout the trip, however we did encounter language barriers when we needed to know certain things, and found that he wasn’t always giving us local knowledge when other guides were doing this. He seemed quite shy however he did ensure that we had a very successful trip. Our porter was also excellent and made the trip much more manageable. Thanks for an unforgettable experience!

We had such a short time in Nepal - only 5 days - but a wonderful experience thanks to Sudershan's expert planning.

We had such a short time in Nepal - only 5 days - but a wonderful experience thanks to Sudershan's expert planning. He was very patient as we emailed back and forth trying to decide what kind of trip suited us and always replied very promptly. It was a very stress free experience as we were met at the airport by Sudarshan, our guide Sanu and driver Amrit, and were whisked off to the first night of our 3 day Balthali Trek. All 3 nights accommodation were very comfortable with excellent food and service - but the highlight was Namu Buddha Resort! A series of cottages spread out through a lovely garden - we had a large 2 story house just for 2 of us - and superb vegetarian food all grown on the property. The walk to the nearby Tibetan monastry was well within our capabilities and the monastry was spectacular. We were very well looked after by Sanu, who gauged our level of fitness and adjusted walking times accordingly, and answered our many questions about Nepalese lifestyle and customs. We were also very appreciative of Amrit's superb driving skills on very challenging roads. Both Sanu and Amrit were charming, helpful and considerate and we highly recommend their company - Blue Sheep - to travelers wishing to gain an insight into Nepalese culture. Sudarshan met us on our return to Kathmandu and was very helpful with advice for our brief visit to that very vibrant city.

Sudarshan is an amazing host, pre-trip and during the trip! He gave very speedy replies and was very efficient even though I made multiple changes throughout the planning of the trip.
He also constantly stayed in contact with me throughout the trip via whatsapp to make sure that everything was going fine and gave us up to date information on what was going to happen next.

The long bus rides between cities however is something I would probably never do again (Sudarshan did warn me on this before the trip).
Sudarshan's hospitality and reliability is something that will make me return again.
Everything went very smoothly and pleasantly!

From the moment I requested information about the Poon Hill Trek to the moment I arrived back home from the perfectly organized trip, Mingma and his team have been helpful, kind, informative, and attentive. As a solo female traveler, I was a little apprehensive about what my experience would be. Mingma laid out a tentative itinerary in detail that fit my requests and needs. I was extremely pleased. The price for all of the services (airport pickup, hotel stays, flights between Kathmandu and Pokhara, and a guide) was affordable too! This is a hands-on company! I had a representative from the company accessible to me at all times. Bishow, was my greeter and accompanied me to all of my airport drop-offs and pick-ups, contacted me by phone to make sure my guide and porter where in contact with me, and just made sure I was taken care of. My guide, JB, and porter, Ram, for the trek were very familiar with the trek and were very knowledgable about the area. It was great to have a guide that spoke English as well as the local language and could help with communication! Overall, this company, Mingma, Bishow, JB, and Ram provided a safe and quality experience. I will definitely use them again and refer anyone to them who is looking for a Nepal trekking experience. Thank you guys so much! My time in Nepal was a very memorable and amazing experience!

And he makes sure to meet with you after the trek to give some feedback on how things went throughout the trek. The one thing I can assure is that Sudarshan is highly recommendable to anyone seeking for some adventure in Nepal. He has the knowledge and professionalism to satisfy your needs.
