Great hike in Nepal
, Aug 2020
I went to this hike with my guide Shekhar and it was a great experience. I commented to him that it was a nice and short one so we could do another one which could be longer which we did the following day. Both of them were amazing even though we got caught in the middle of the rain. He took me through a really nice and challenging route and it was an experience I'll never forget Ir took me a while to make the review but finally did it, if you have a chance to go and hike with him you won't regret it

Missed Opportunity
, Mar 2020
We were disappointed by this tour. We didn’t get pradip as a lot of these reviewers did, but the gentleman giving our tour was nice however did not talk much or tell us any facts. They communicated our hotel pickup and did a good job with that and were on time. We got to see Nagarkot on a clear day which was BEAUTIFUL. Then we started our hike, it was on a dirt road, was a little muddy but had some nice views of the locals living on the hills. If you want to take pictures of them some let you but some ask for money. This tour says it’s mostly downhill however it was a lot of uphill walking, just as much up as down. In one small area it was pretty steep. A mix of sun and shade during the hike. We were disappointed in the lack of communication, the guide talked to one other member of our party and didn’t talk to us as much, so we were left wondering what was going on. Also, we would have loved to hear about culture, or local life or agriculture, or something, but the guide stayed so quiet. Missed opportunity. They paid for our lunch and a drink at the restaurant, the momos were the best thing on the menu.

Thank you Sammy for a beautiful comments. Concerning your comments, i have talk with my guide, and said that he have tried his best to make a beautiful day. But, i have ask to my guide to center all members when briefing, explaining and ask frequently before heading to another spot or site. Further, i said to the guide to stick together with everyone. We a team of Alpine Asian Treks assure that next time it will not happen. Once again i would like to thank you on behalf of my company for a useful suggestions.
Refreshing and informative hiking tour
, Feb 2020
This tour was a hiking tour which was very interesting in several aspects. We visited temples and especially villages outside Kathmandu. It was a great experience to see the local people doing their daily things and at the same time doing a refreshing hiking with an informative conversation with the guide. I learned a lot about the Napelese culture and also practical information about the life of the normal people in Nepal.

Beautiful hiking trip
, Jun 2019
Highly recommended! The trip started with a ride to Nagarkot with a beautiful view of the Lantang mountain range. Then it was a very nice hike to Changu Narayan Temple. Beautiful place and beautiful views on your way. Pradip - our tour guide made this hike enjoyable and relaxing.

Although Pradip is a very interested guide and made the most to assure a quality hike, the weather conditions weren't the most suitable to appreciate the natural landscape. I can't help feeling it was a bit overpriced...

Amazing day with Pradip! His knowledge on every aspect of Nepal and the day to day life of its people is great and he is happy to share it. The knowledge he imparted at the temple was great. Fantastic hike with stunning views. The private aspect of this tour is so nice! Highly recommend.

If you are looking to experience the culture of rural Nepal while burning some calories, I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Pradip, was amazing. He hiked according to our pace, and took the time to ensure we had the best possible experience. Pradip was very attentive to our interests and was able to tell how much I love animals especially goats. He went above and beyond and asked the local farmers if I could pet and hold their baby goats. It was such an awesome experience. He let us swing on a handmade swing made out of bamboo. That was a lot of fun. Pradip was more than willing to take pictures of us and even knew how to use a higher quality camera, Canon EOS Digital DSLR. He was such an awesome guide and I would definitely booking this tour.

This was by far the BEST I've ever had. Kalpana is an excellent guide with very extensive knowledge about local culture and she will be more than happy to anwser any of your questions. After the tour I felt I learned more in the span of 4 hours than during my entire stay in Nepal. HIGHLY recommended if you want to see all the best places in Kathmandu!
