    My girlfriend and I had the most amazing time during our Langtang Trek thanks to our top guide, Rupak! The views were incredible and it was so great to be deep within the jungles of the Himalayas where we saw wildlife such as Monkeys, Deer, Mountain Goats, Yak, Mules, Birds, Butterflies and Bees - including their impressive beehives. We have also never eaten so well in our lives thanks to the seemingly bottomless Daal Bats from every Tea Hut and accommodation along the way. All of which contained locally and organically grown vegetables. Having Rupak as our guide we were constantly assured that everything was going to plan in terms of timings and we were - of course - always on the right track. Safety was always at the forefront with Rupak and he took great care of us, we always felt safe and secure. After the days trek we played cards and Rupak taught us some new games which we will take with us on all of our future adventures. All in all, it was a once in a lifetime experience. One that we will never forget. Thank you Outdoor Himalayan Treks and thank you Rupak, hope to see you again in the future for another trip!

    We had a flawless time on our tour through the Lang tang valley. The area itself is beautiful and the trek took us through a variety of forests, fields, rivers and mountains. Our guide was Prakash and he was fantastic. He was professional, friendly and allowed us to trek at our own pace. He never felt pushy and was always understanding. We enjoyed our social time with him as well and played cards every night. We felt he had everything under control and was always well organised. Our porter was Indra and he was also great. Spoke very little English but always had a smile on his face and always helpful We would definitely consider booking through the same company and requesting Prakash again if we return to Nepal

    Outdoor Himalayan was great from start to finish. Dilli is an A+ guide and the entire 14 days of my treks were handled seamlessly. Customer service is always first at every turn and everything is thought of. Highly recommended!

    It was my first time trekking in Nepal and even if I was overconfident about my hiking skills, I had no experience with altitude. It was super important to have a guide giving us advice about what to pack and most of all to plan the trip in a smart way to avoid altitude sickness and other problems. I enjoyed getting to our guest house every evening having everything taken care of for us in advance. Rupak made our experience really enjoyable and we are looking forward to a new challenge next year. Thank you Outdoor Himalayan Treks for all the patience and advice on making decisions about our adventure and for introducing us with a wonderful guide.

    Wir sind super happy dass wir die Tour mit Badri von Outdoor Himalayan Treks gebucht haben. Badri verbreitet einfach gute Laune und hat uns Arjun, einen super verantwortungsbewussten und netten Guide und Porter mit auf den Weg mitgegeben. Arjun spricht auch gut Englisch, ist sehr erfahren, kann über alles Auskunft geben und weiß die besten Lodges für Essen und Übernachtungen. Der Trek selber war wunderschön von der Natur her. Es gibt viele Lodges für ne Pause und überall ist das Essen sehr lecker. Da das Langtang Tal vom Erdbeben 2015 sehr betroffen war, findet man leider grade am Ende des Treks kaum mehr ursprüngliche Häuser die aus Stein gebaut sind, was wir von anderen Treks in Nepal kennen. Die nach dem Erdbeben errichteten Häuser/Lodges sind entsprechend sicherer gebaut und deshalb aus Beton, was halt dann leider an Charme fehlen lässt. Alles in allem legen wir Outdoor Himalayan Treks jedem ans Herz mit Ihnen zu buchen!

    De Langtang trek gaat door een uitdagende omgeving: stevige wandeldagen die uiteindelijk leiden naar de top van de Tserko Ri, 4985 m. In enkele dagen gaat het pad - soms bijna recht omhoog, worden stevige hoogteverschillen overbrugt en de conditie diep aangesproken. Weersomstandigheden in de bergen kunnen snel veranderen. Betrouwbare gids en drager zijn dan voorwaarde voor een veilige trekking. Onze gids Krishna en onze drager Maniss bleken in staat in te spelen op de - snel veranderende - weersomstandigheden. Dan moet er worden geïmproviseerd en een gemaakte planning moet kunnen worden losgelaten. De top, inmiddels met sneeuw en ijs bedekt, bleek onbereikbaar en we staakten onze poging 200 m voor de top. Op de weg terug begon het te sneeuwen en de wind wakkerde stevig aan, wat onze keus om te terug te keren bevestigde. Gidsen willen maar al te graag vasthouden aan het afgesproken programma om klanten niet teleur te stellen. Dat kan leiden tot gevaarlijke situaties. In overleg met Krishna pasten wij ons programma aan, om geen overbodige risico's te lopen in het vervolg van ons programma. We vonden goede alternatieve trekkingsdagen in de omgeving. Het bleek een verstandige keuze, toen later bij anderen verhalen naar boven kwamen over de inderdaad gevaarlijk geworden trekkingsroute. Outdoor Himalayan Treks heeft goed getrainde en goed geïnformeerde gidsen. Krishna vertelde ons over de geografische en sociale omstandigheden van de gebieden en de mensen die we bezochten. Hij bracht ons in contact met de bevolking, bleek uitermate goed geïnformeerd, sociaal behendig en prettig in de omgang. In de eenvoudige lodges waar we overnachtten werd goed gekookt. Omgang met de mensen die ze beheren was zonder uitzondering prima: vriendelijk en behulpzaam. De leefomstandigheden zijn voor de bewoners erg zwaar en het is bewonderenswaardig hoe ze hun gasten ontvangen en in de watten leggen. Gezien de omstandigheden is dat iedere keer weer een uitdaging waar ze uitstekend in lijken te slagen. Altijd staan gastvrijheid en het behulpzaam willen zijn voorop. Het hoofdkantoor van Outdoor Himalayan Treks in Kathmandu wordt uitstekend gerund door Raj en Ram. Als cliënten werden we voorafgaand aan onze reis goed op de hoogte gebracht van de mogelijkheden die trekkingsreizen door Nepal bieden. Er werd snel en adequaat gereageerd op onze vragen en mailtjes. Het geheel maakt een goed georganiseerde indruk. Gemaakte afspraken, ook financieel, werden correct nageleefd. Ter voorbereiding is het wel verstandig om thuis al zelf goed na te gaan door welke gebieden en onder welke omstandigheden de trekking plaatsvindt, waarbij het geen kwaad kan een reële inschatting te maken van de eigen, fysieke mogelijkheden. Wij maakten gebruik van de kaarten van Maps.me (Nepal) om inzicht te krijgen in de trekkingsroutes. Het is niet altijd even gemakkelijk om redelijk gedetailleerde kaarten te vinden. Hun kaarten bleken uitstekend te kloppen en zelfs kleine nederzettingen, wandelpaden en lodges werden correct aangegeven. De hotels in Kathmandu en Pokhara waarmee Outdoor Himalayan Treks samenwerkt bleken van goede kwaliteit, met voorzieningen als - goed werkende - wifi en digitale televisie. De ligging was perfect, direct in Thamel, maar voldoende achteraf om rust te vinden Voor het vervoer van en naar de trekkingsgebieden besloten we gebruik te maken van een privéonderneming. Dus geen touristenbusjes of openbaar vervoer; duurder, maar veiliger. Ook hier bleek Outdoor Himlayan Treks samen te werken met zeer betrouwbare partners: goede prijsafspraken, een uitstekend chauffeur, Ram, en een comfortabele, veilige auto. Iedereen van en rond Outdoor Himalayan Treks bleek op tijd en volgens afspraak voor ons klaar te staan om ons te begeleiden op onze trekking. Ze maakten onze vakantiedagen onvergetelijk. In de loop der jaren is dit de derde keer dat we met Outdoor Himalayan samenwerkten om onze trekking voor te bereiden, alle keren naar volle tevredenheid.
