    Amazing Experience in Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek

    My friend and I did the Manaslu and Tsum Valley Trek with Nepal Mother House Treks and I would highly recommend it to others. I was surprised by Karna's fluency in English. Communication with him was very easy and his efficiency in arranging the trip was amazing.

    Our guide and porter treated us like family members and did everything they can to make our trip more enjoyable. Although there are flaws at times, we could tell that they really are trying their best and it's the thought that counts.

    It was a really pleasant experience and I look forward to coming back to Nepal and trekking with them again´╝ü

    2 weeks in Nepal with 5 day Poon Hill trek

    From first contact, Karna was a pleasure to work with and organized everything very efficiently for us. I contacted a few companies in Kathmandu before our first trip to Nepal and Karna was able to give us the itinerary that we wanted (and suggested a few alterations to make it more efficient) at a price that we were comfortable with. He met us upon arrival at the airport in Kathmandu and outlined everything in detail with us so that we didn't have any surprises as far as what was included or not. By far, the highlight of our trip was our 5 day Ghorepani/Poon Hill trek. Our guide, Kapil, was amazing offering alternate routes while we were trekking in order to get the most out of our time. My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend Karna and Kapil to anyone traveling to Nepal, and will definitely be contacting him again for our next trip to the area.

    Highly Recommend Manaslu Circuit Trip !

    Right from our first emails to Karna...we had a great smooth service from him. He was quick to reply, organized our trip in Manasalu Circuit, guide, and porter, and our permits. In addition, Karna had the experience of walking the trek we were going on so he was great at putting it at our ease and advising us of an itinerary. I would highly recommend using his Trekking agency and if I return to Nepal (which I'd love to do) then I will be contacting him again.

    EBC Trip June 12, 2014

    We hired Nepal Mother House for a 13-day/2-person trek to Everest Base Camp. They were an excellent tour company. Very personable and very accommodating. The initial contact and setup of the trip with Karna were very easy. Our guide Bom was very helpful and very friendly and also very accommodating to our needs.

    We experienced issues with weather and getting both to and from Lukla. Bom was able to arrange a helicopter (at an additional cost of course) to get us both to and from Lukla to keep our schedules on EBC track. This was very important to us as Nepal was not the only country we were visiting. We also received a credit for the unused flights as soon as we returned to Kathmandu.

    When we were not feeling well or needed to take a break during the trek, there were no issues. We always felt we were in control of our trip. They arranged all our meals and places to stay. We had no issues with either of those as well.

    Bom was also very friendly and often hung out and played cards and chatted with us once we arrived. He was very helpful in describing the areas and mountains during the trek.

    I would highly recommend using Nepal Mother House.

    Langtang-The Most Amazing Trip!

    I emailed a few agencies and Nepal Mother house was by far the most efficient with the best English.

    Our Trip: We did an 11-day trek of the Langtang Valley.

    Price: Our pack was the best price I could find out of about 5 agencies.

    Our Guide/Porter: Bibbek and Barbarum were fantastic. Bibbek could work on speaking a little louder but his English will improve with experience. They supported us when needed and left us to do our own things when we wanted to too. 10 out of 10 for them!!

    All in all, I would 100% use this agency again. They were fantastic!! I hope to come back again one day :)

    Manaslu Circuit & Tsum Valley

    From our first contact with Nepal Mother House by email, my husband & I felt we were in good hands. Karna Rana’s responses were swift and clear. The pricing was also very transparent. Karna came to meet us when we arrived in Kathmandu and, due to impending strikes in the city, it was necessary to change our plans to travel by jeep the following day, all of which was dealt with very efficiently and we were on the road in under 24 hours.

    Our guide Prem & porter Rudra were both wonderful. Not only were they excellent at their jobs, but they were both such good company. Prem was extremely professional and did everything to make our journey comfortable and enjoyable, sorting out accommodation & food, and even cooking when necessary. Rudra was always cheerful and very helpful, and we made a very happy group together.

    We feel very privileged to have trekked the Manaslu Circuit & the Tsum Valley at a time when the area is only just starting to develop. It is a truly beautiful region and the local people were so friendly and welcoming. The trek itself was challenging but very rewarding.
    We had expected to enjoy ourselves; we did not expect we would have such an amazing experience.

    We would have no hesitation recommending Nepal Mother House to others, and we will use them again when we return.

    Brilliant Service for Manaslu Circuit and Tsum Valley Trek

    We used Nepal Mother House for our day 23 trek around Manaslu and Tsum Valley in November 2013. We had used this company three years previously for our trek around the Annapurna Circuit and Sanctuary and again we received brilliant service.

    Karna arranged all our permits efficiently and all transport links arrived on time. All our queries were answered quickly by e-mail. Our guide Bibek took great care of us and he makes excellent porridge.

    Would not hesitate to recommend this company for your trek in Nepal.

    Great, Flexible Service with Nepal Mother House on Everest Base Camp

    We had a great trek to Everest Base Camp and were really pleased with how flexible Karna and Kapil (our guide) was. We booked the trip 1 week before showing up in Nepal and then made multiple changes along the way. Kapil was always happy to accommodate!

    One of the best parts of the trip was that it was only my sister and me in a group. Many people asked how we arranged that and we always felt pleased it worked out that way. Then, people in bigger groups would tell us how much they paid and we felt even more lucky as we were on a private tour for much less!

    Karna and Kapil made our trip to Nepal easy!
