We have known Govinda for many years, and trust him completely with all the details of whatever Nepal experience we have decided to undertake. A couple of years ago, we stayed for five weeks and had him organize a trek to the Everest region, one to the Gurka area, a jungle adventure in Bardia National Park, and accommodation in Kathmandu in between. Several years ago we went to Lo Manthang in the Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang. Govinda filed all the extensive paperwork required to get the permits, and organized all the porters and provisions we needed to undertake the long trek from Jomson and back, when there were no inns or restaurants. We plan to return to Nepal in 2015, and will see what Adventure Pilgrims has on offer!
Adventure Pilgrims Trekking is a friendly and professional company that operates trekking and adventure trips all over Nepal. We have used them numerous times and I have always been impressed by their staff. The senior management is well educated, speaks English fluently and has a convenient office in the heart of the Thamel area of Kathmandu. I highly recommend them.
Basically we had a awesome time on our trek. Adventure Pilgrims Mgr, Govinda, is awesome. In addition to coordinating our trek, he also helped us coordinate everything else too from rides from the airport, things to do in Kathmandu, and places to stay (even at a homestay at his house!). He also is a wealth of knowledge on Nepal, and very passionate about improving the situation in his country.
Regarding the trek itself, we trekked in the Langtang region linking together two treks (Langtang Valley and Gozaikunda Holy Lake) over two weeks. The trek was beautiful (but I am confident any trek in the Himalayas would be). The experience was great as well. The hiking was strenuous of course, but also super relaxed (days usually consisted of hiking in the morning, lunch at a tea house, a bit more hiking, some cards/Nepali chess, dinner, a bit of reading, and a lot of sleep)! Our guide and porter (Chandra and Mama) were both extremely nice, very knowledgeable (and apt to teach us some Nepali language and games), and flexible (we decided to tweak our route a bit more than once while on the trek). Probably most importantly, I am sure that, if anything were to have happened on the trail, I am extremely confident that Chandra/Mama would have taken great care of us!
All in all, definitely a great experience and I would highly recommend Adventure Pilgrims!
This was our second trekking trip with Adventure Pilgrims Trekking. They are a truly professional company and our two trips have both been splendid. Our recent trip was to the Langtang valley, for trekking. Our guide, Krishna Panta, went out of his way to ensure we had a great experience. Govinda and his team at Adventure Pilgrims organised everything for us in advance and the whole trip went very smoothly. I would highly recommend this company to anyone planning a trekking trip in Nepal.
I have done with this company 3 diferent treks in 2007,2008 and 2013. I never had any problem or trouble. They really know what trekker needs during trek and provide really good service and suport. We had a great time and I hope to see them very soon again. Thanks a lot.
