    The 21 day Kanchenjunga Circuit is an amazing trek to see a remote region and experience the traditional culture of Nepal. Nima Sherpa was my guide, a local from that area, and so knowledgeable about everything. I had an unexpected change of travel plans and Pasang was wonderful in helping and taking care of all the details. I hope to go back one day and look forward to connecting with Pasang again!

    I went in a 14 day trek with our guide Pasang and my two friends. It was a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to another trip in with Mount Adventure Holidays. I am vegan and I had absolutely no problems eating while in the trek at all. The team quickly learned how to accommodate my diet and made sure I was never given anything not vegan. Our group walked faster than the planned itinerary so we ended up ending a day or two earlier. Pasang talked about our pace and the distance we would do each day so everyone was happy and comfortable. Pasang took care of everything from the time we got to KTM from the time we left and was very helpful suggesting things to do when we had some free time. This was an unforgettable trip and I will be recommending Mount Adventure Holidays to anyone who wants to go to Nepal. Thank you for the great experience!

    We did about close to 2 weeks trek in Nepal. It was me, my boyfriend, and my friend, so it was only 3 of us. Pasang, our guide was amazing, friendly, and well spoken. He welcomed us by picking us up from the airport and take us to the hotel. He explained to us what our trip would be like after we were well rested. We spent a day in KTM sightseeing after that we flew from KTM to BHR , first of all, the process of getting in and out of domestic airports in Nepal is insane and Pasang was there to take care of everything. He organized everything from the tea houses, foods, jeep rides, our trek, our porters(they were amazing!) etc. The Kanchenjunga trek itself was amazing. It was more remote and we all enjoyed that very much. It was stress-free, there was no worries. I would do it all over again. I’ve never been in a higher attitude climate before, so I would trek slower than everyone else when we got to a higher attitude, but Pasang always makes sure to stay with me or have his assistance hike with me. It was my first time in Nepal and I truly enjoyed this moment in Nepal from their multi-culture diversity and Kanchenjunga trek. It is definitely nice going to Nepal for a hike and have met so many amazing people including Pasang. He treated everyone around him like a family and that’s what I appreciate about our wonderful guide.

    At the end of 2018, I started to plan the Kanchenjunga Circuit North to South (22 days) as my next trek in Nepal – the 6th one after doing before, the Langtang, the Lower Mustang, the Annapurna Circuit, and twice the Everest Base Camp 3 passes. I did all those treks with my good friend Nachman – always without a guide, and only the last one with a porter. I scheduled the Kanchenjunga circuit for OCT 1, 2019, so I have plenty of time to study and plan the trek to the very details. Kanchenjunga Trek is defined by the Nepali authorities as a Restricted Area which can be done with a Licensed Guide! My first step in the plan was, to find a reliable Local operator to work with. I prepared a standard RFQ (Request for Proposal) that I sent to 20 selected companies. In the RFQ I asked for 3 services: A Guide, Porters and ground transportation (Jeep) - From Bhadarpur to Taplejung and back. I have stated clearly that the prerequisite is a previous proved experience with the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek. After about two month of email back and forth and with 8 companies that were left as appropriate candidates I have decided to work with Pasang Sherpa the owner of Mount Adventures Holidays, who managed to provide the most “balanced” offer, and happen to be the most responsive via emails….usually Pasang responds to Email, in details, within few hours or less – I liked it!!! Pasang choose Nima Sherpa to be our guide. Nima is from the Kanchenjunga Region well familiar with this trek, as he did it several time before. The same applies to one of the Porters who is also from the Kanchenjunga region. The combination of Pasang Sherpa, Nima Sherpa and the two Porters was a “Winning” combination!!! The professional organization, services, attitude and concerns were far above any expectations I have. Thank you Nima for leading us safely along the trek, for taking care of us and for being so considerate. Special thanks to Pasang Sherpa who managed the whole operation remotely. Thank you Pasang for the wonderful team Guide and Porters. Please give my sincere appreciation and thanks to the porters who did a great Job with a smile! It was my honor to work with both of you – Pasang and Nima! If someone is looking for a professional and reliable company for trekking in challenging remote areas in Nepal – Mount Adventures Holidays with Pasang Sherpa and Nima Sherpa will be a perfect Choice !!
