We completed the Everest Base Camp trek with Anjan from Nepal High Trek and Expedition, in May. It was incredibly beautiful and very well organised. Anjan took care of everything from airport transfers to accommodation and food. Anjan even helped us organise a little side trip to Pokhara at the end of our stay. The advantage of trekking with Nepal High Trek and Expedition is that you go with your own private group, you trek at your own pace and you get an amazing experience at a great cost (much cheaper than the big trekking companies). I highly recommend Anjan and Nepal high trek and expedition. I will be back to trek with Anjan again in the future.

Anjan and Pawan orchestrated a life changing trip. From beginning to end, they had a handle on all the logistics, even with the monsoon season continuously complicating travel. Pawan was extremely accommodating and managed the pace of our trek to make it as painless as possible. Anjan was fantastic at communicating, punctual, and extraordinarily personable. I highly recommend Nepal High Trek--Pawan and Anjan will ensure a memorable trip.

My first trek in Nepal was great, all thanks to Mr. Anjan. Nepal High Trek & Expedition provided a good rate, comprehensive package and good company by Mr. Anjan himself! Throughout the trek, my friend and I felt very safe, thanks to his professionalism and knowledge about the terrain, the mountains, and the region. There was never a point where we felt that anything was amiss and it was wonderful. I liked that everything was provided for in your package price – from airport transfer, accommodation to daily meals and even toilet roll! It makes things so much easier this way and you can hike in peace without any worries. He also provided trekking poles which helped a lot. Mr. Anjan was knowledgeable about the mountains and where we were going. He kept the pace slow and steady as we gained altitude. Our porter that accompanied us was good company as well and so strong, carrying our heavy bags over the rocky terrain. Mr. Anjan also made sure that we were well looked after each day, settling our meals and making sure we had blankets to tide us through the cold nights! All your needs are taken care of. If you are going on a trek to Nepal, I highly recommend Mr. Anjan and his company. You’ll surely be in for a fantastic time. Cheers! Name: Audrey NG

Especially a lot of thanks to Nepal High Trek & Expedition as organized a wonderful and experience guide for Everest Base Camp Tour in April 2018. Our trip of a lifetime was made even more special after meeting our amazing guide and Nepal High Trek & Expedition. We could not have asked for a better guide than Pawan. He looked after us every step of the way, organizing every aspect of the trek. His friendly, positive attitude totally made the trek for us all. Would not want to do a hike with anyone else.

In 20118 completed the Annapurna Circuit Trek walk over about 21 days with two friends (we are all over 50 years old) and with Anjan as our guide. As a professional tour guide in Australia, I know how hard it is to make such a trip work and I recommend him without reservation. We had the best time of our lives and throughout the walk, Anjan was a complete professional making it one of the most carefree holiday of my life. Apart from being a great and friendly source of information on the country and its people, he smoothed out all the little problems that come up on this kind of adventure. Thanks so much, Anjan and Nepal High Trek & Expedition Team.

It was the first time I visited Nepal with my mother and the experience was enthralling. The Nepal High Trek team has arranged every accommodation possible to make sure my old mother does not feel exhausted. During the trek to Annapurna Base Camp, I was able to explore the ravishing beauty of Nepal. Looking forward to plan my next trip with them.

In 2010, my son, husband and I did the Langtang Valley Trek with Anjan as our amazing guide. His knowledge of the area was extensive, including walking expectations, weather and terrain conditions, and the best places to stop, rest, eat and sleep. So much so, that other Trekkers called on his advice despite having their own guides. He was a very acknowledges an expert mountain guide. On the trek, Anjan was nurturing, fun and extremely amicable with everyone. He had a very endearing personality, and over the two-week trek, he became a member of our family. I highly recommend Anjan to anybody considering undertaking any trek in Nepal.

I have done 3 treks with Anjan and Nepal High Trek & Expedition Langtang gosainkund Trek, Everest Base Camp Trek and Island peak climbing and Annapurna circuit Trekking 5 years before in Nepal. That’s was wonderful and lifetime trip in my life. Due to weather conditions, we had to change our plans and return to Besi chair and then do the Annapurna Base Camp with a few extra places along the way. My guide was Anjan and he was so helpful. When our itinerary had to change he was helpful, suggested other options and did what he could to make the best of a situation beyond all human control. Anjan is very proud of his country and willing to share all his knowledge and experience with his clients. Nepal High Trek & Expedition is trustworthy, takes all responsibility and all problems The staff at Nepal High Trek are very helpful and willing to help you with any information or anything else you may need. I would highly recommend this agency as they are professional, competent and helpful! I will definitely be back and trekking with them in the future.
