Everest Base Camp Short Trek…difficult hiking but well worth it!

I would highly recommend Trekking Planning for the Everest Base Camp Short Trek. From the time I landed in Kathmandu to my departure flight back to the USA, I was completely "hand held" for my entire excursion. Dipak was with me or had a staff member take care of my needs. I was never left alone to wonder what was coming next! The trip itinerary was complete. And since I had an extra day in Kathmandu before my trek, I was able to pay a reasonable amount of money for a city tour that was complete and very informative. When it was time for me to depart to Lukla, I had complete supervision until I got on the flight which made me feel extremely comfortable. The trek to Base Camp was rather difficult, however my guide and porter took very good care of me throughout the trek. Often I needed some extra help and they were both there to escort and hold onto to me during the technical, difficult sections of the trail. I had some minor issues during the trek, but again, I was reassured by the guide and porter that I would be taken care of. When my flight was severely delayed in leaving Lukla, my guide (Gyelijan) came back to the airport to get me and stay with me for the next 3 days till I was able to secure another form of transportation out of Lukla. I can tell you that just about every other trekker saw their guide just leave them in the airport to fend for themselves! I was so grateful for Gyelijan to take care of my needs during this delay. When I did finally leave Lukla and arrive in Kathmandu, Dipak was waiting for me in the Kathmandu airport with the taxi to take me back to the Skyline Hotel. The other trekkers had to scramble for transportation. I was able to spend a few hours in the hotel before my night flight to USA and once again, Dipak arranged for a taxi to take me to the airport. I would recommend this trek as just about everything is included which makes it a "no brainer" for the client. I did want to worry about paying for lodges, food, airfare, permit fees on the trek and so it was taken care of by the guide.

My second trekking experience with Mr. Dipak Lamichhane of Trekkingplanner, all promises are always maintained and if any problems occur they are promptly solved. I highly recommend Dipak and his stafff for their courtesy and professionalism! Attempted Mera peak 6,476 m but reached 6,260 m and had to quite due to very bad weather, but very satisfied of the experience and my Amazing guide Gyeljan Sherpa who did the impossible to try to get me to the top!!!

Tsum Valley and Manaslu Trekking

My search for a local company with great service and the competitive total cost that would offer customized private trekking trip led me to Trekking Planner. I have been to Nepal before and have good experience with another company that I used - but, I wanted to up my expectations. I have been, as of today, very pleased with Dipak (the company owner) throughout my planning process. So I now have booked my trekking trip for the two of us (myself and my wife), which goes from mid-October to mid-November. I am expecting a great trip... I will follow up with my update once I come back from my adventure.

Slow and easy Annapurna

I did the 'Slow and easy' trek at the Annapurna region with trekking planner, and can confidently say that it was the best experience of my life. I was a bit concerned as a female (not particularly fit) solo traveller, but everything was made so comfortable and effortless by Dipak and his team I almost couldn't believe it. They were waiting for me when I got to the airport and efficiently organised transport and every little detail. They adapted the trip for me, so I could fit a stay in a monastery and the yoga classes which were not originally included in the itinerary. Dipak is really responsive and accommodating, always making sure I had everything I needed for the trip. The yoga classes were amazing, and guides and porters all were really reliable, helpful and kind. I felt safe and spoiled at all times. I highly recommend Trekking planner for their experience and knowledge of the territory, but also for their human qualities. You couldn't be in better hands! Namaste!
