a great team
Sometimes intuition, or gut instinct, leads you to make the right decision.
I met marketing staff’s of NTA in the streets of Thamel and like many others, he gave me a business card and invited my husband and I to visit their office and discuss our travel plans. There are so many touts on the streets of Thamel but NTA’s staff open friendly manner won the day.
After entering to the office we found Manager is thorough, his services reliable and very affordable and his staff and team of guides and porters are friendly, trustworthy and committed to caring for their clients. They skillfully organizes all the details for a successful trip - pickups, buses, hotels, tour activities, a checklist for trekking requirements and, of course, wonderful treks. His team organized a everything for us like- Chitwan National Park, Pokhara,The Annapurna Base Camp Trek and the Helambu trek.
What an experience! Chitwan was amazing and our only regret was that we did not allow more time there after our organised activities to relax and explore the local villages more. Yes we were tired at the end of both treks but every aching muscle and sore toe was well worth it. We trekked through some of the most spectacular scenery that either of us has ever seen. The climax was, of course, Annapurna Sanctuary. It is a very special place and definitely a fitting home for the gods!
The old adage holds out – no pain, no gain. We felt blessed! Trekking is a great way to get a real feel of Nepal, its countryside, its villages, its people and its magnificent mountains. I am so glad that we have had the opportunity and time to have had these wonderful experiences.
A big thanks you, once again, to Manager, to our wonderful guide and friend on both treks, and our incredible porters.
Don't leave it to intuition of gut instinct like I had to, but take my advice and put your trust in the hands of Manager and the wonderful staff at NTA.
Get Ready to Have Your Mind Blown
Once in awhile you will have an experience that changes not only your life but your soul. You will come upon a person, a lifestyle, an environment, a smell, a dish of food, or someone's misfortune that will make you stop and reassess. I wanted to experience Nepal and feel the land and the people without being lead to through the scams of the typical tour companies. I have been led down one too many roads and through one too many souks to the "brother" that will give you the best deal. Only to find out behind the next pile of carpets, lay another just like the one under your arm for half the price. I wanted to travel a sacred land and not be spoiled by (or desecrate) anything that wasn't natural about where I was. Binod and his team have changed my life forever. I am brought to tears every time I think about my travels to Nepal and the experience I had there. Ram was my guide and now a dear friend. If you want to find yourself and head off to a far away land to ride elephants, touch Buddha's birthplace, paraglide over rice paddy fields, trek through untouched villages and feel alive, book with Nepal Trek Adventures. You will not be disappointed. Namaste from the USA.
These guys are the best!
Binod and his crew know where to take you to see the amazing and beautiful sights of Nepal. And he helps you experience it all as you go. One call to Binod was all it took! We had a safe and friendly guide and all the local knowledge to use at the tour. For touring around Nepal you can't find a better company!
Highly recommended and we will again use this guys in soon future for next trip.
