My friend and I booked with mountain travel for a 13 day Manaslu Circuit Trek early Oct. I had a stress free and punctual communication between Ashok who organized my trip prior to arrival, he helped with all questions and made my life easy!
They provided us with a kind and caring guide Raii. He was knowledgeable and easy to get along with, the Loveliest man Dharma was added onto the booking to carry my friends pack and man I’m glad he came along. Dharma and Rai together are the definition of Dream Team
The trek itself was excellent. Every day was new and held exciting opportunities.
I completely recommend Mountain Travel for trekking Manaslu Circuit.
In a word: UNBELIEVABLE! I used Mountain Travel in 1992 for my first trip to Nepal, and when I decided to return this year, I contacted them again (as well as several other companies).
Ashok at Mountain Travel built a custom trip for me that covered all the things I wanted: Kathmandu, Annapurna/Poon Hill trek, Everest sightseeing flight, Bhutan, Tiger's Nest, etc. They included airport pickups and transfers, guides, city tours, some free time to wander, and more. Perhaps of most value: when my dates had to shift at the last minute, they made all the changes seamlessly ... and at no extra cost (other than additional nights). Professional, responsive, and fair is how I would describe them.
Thanks for a great trip...again!
We did a four three night trek to Poon Hill booked through Mountain Travel. Ashok was incredibly helpful beforehand in tailoring the trek to our needs so we arrived with full confidence in the experience. Our guide, Nima, was fantastic, incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable. He even had to direct other people's guides a few times as they didn't know what they were doing but he knew the areas extremely well. I would highly recommend Mountain Travel Nepal to anyone who is interested in trekking in Nepal.
"Wanted to say again that I had a fantastic experience - thank you so much for the help organising everything before and during the trek with the flight changes etc., all of your advice was much appreciated. It was an unforgettable trip and I will definitely be coming back in the future so will be in contact! Dawa Ongchu Sherpa was also a really great guide - super friendly and good to talk to, strong knowledge and very accommodating to adjust the trek to doing different routes etc. "

"We went on a 50th anniversary trek in the eastern region of Nepal's middle hills. The route was much discussed with Ashok Awal whose planning, pre-trek guidance and in-trek support was superb. He put together an excellent core team of Sherpas led by the excellent Chhong Kharma Sherpa supported by the tireless Rinji Sherpa and the utterly brilliant cook and cooks boy, Ongdi Sherpa and Mingma Sherpa (thanks to their efforts we reckon we may be the first trekkers to put on weight during our time in the hills). The weather turned against us so we made radical changes to the planned itinerary but the excellence of the preparation ensured this was accomplished with ease (at least for us) and some aplomb. This was trekking in a grand manner with considerable style, boundless care and as much comfort as its possible to achieve when camping in hot lower levels and damp cloudy middle levels. MTN's reputation preceded it but it was wonderful to see historic standards of excellence being maintained. Thank you for a trek of a lifetime.

"I recently returned to visit Nepal for a month in March/April 23 after a gap of about 40 years and used Mountain Travel Nepal again through Ashok Awal and his team to make ALL the arrangements.
This included the Sherpa Village Trek in the Solukhumbu region in Sagamartha National Park, the Langtang Valley Trek in Langtang National Park and accommodation in Thamel, Shivapuri Heights and Bhaktapur while in the Kathmandu Valley.
The whole month was a wonderful experience. Advice and communication was professional and I always felt safe and looked after. This was commented on by others I met along the way and I think a tribute to the experience of Mountain Travel Nepal.
A big thank you to Sherpa Ngawang Namgel and Porter Pemba Nuru and the staff of the Mountain Lodges of Nepal in the Solukhumbu region and also to Sherpa Sonam Ngima and Porter Phure Lema in the Lantang Valley and to the staff in the Lantang Tea Houses for making me feel so welcome and for sharing their unique way of life. It was a privilege to have the Sherpas show me wild life and birds along the trails and for sharing their lives and experiences. Thank you. "The Sherpa Village Trek (Everest Region)-2023
" We want to say a big thank you Ashok and Sonam at Mountain Travel, for a wonderful and unforgettable trip to Mera Peak.
Everything went very smooth and professional from planing the itinerary to the summit day. We first met both Sonam, our guide and Ashok, our agency contact and got a great feeling. Easy to talk to and discuss upon our trip details. All clear and great plan that fitted our thought of a Mera Peak expedition. "Mera Peak Climbing

" If you are planning a trip to Nepal then "Mountain Travel Nepal" is your go-to agency. We had an amazing experience with the company and Mr. Ashok. We track the Everest Base Camp in 10 days.
The team was very helpful in providing us with detail, adjusting the route accordingly before and after due to weather changes where needed, provide insights into the culture and the people, and supporting us in any way they could to achieve and successfully complete the trek. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. We will come back.. I'm sure of it. Special thanks to our guide Loken and our two porters Dipak Rai and Bibek Rai who took very good care of us providing a positive and family atmosphere. "

" We used Mountain Travel Nepal on our most recent trip in April 2019 to organize a trek in the Langtang Valley and were so happy with the level of service they gave our group. The experienced staff add so much value to a trek, showing you secret spots along the trail, introducing you to cultural life in the mountains, and spotting elusive wildlife you might normally miss! I would thoroughly recommend Mountain Travel Nepal, particularly for families and others who have a commitment to ethical travel. "Langtang Valley Trek
" We arrived well back in Switzerland after the most exciting trek in the Khumbu Everest area. We would like to thank you again for the perfect organization. We had a great time with Nima and Kancha our guide and porter. They were most helpful and wonderful companions."Everest Trek with Gokyo Valley

"On arrival in Kathmandu, I knew from our very first meeting with Tamding Sherpa, our senior guide, that we were in good hands. Tamding paid attention in particular to a senior member of our group, and provided all the care needed for all of us to succeed. The service was second to none. The fact that he had worked with the company for so many years spoke volumes about his loyalty to the firm. Mountain Travel Nepal’s experience in the industry and the care they show their staff is in a class of its own. Happy staff makes for a happy trek – and ours certainly was!"
