    Gokyo Valley Trek via Cho La Pass Nepal Mother House Treks

    We are two of a group of 12 people from Australia. We are both in our 60's. Our guide, Mr. Karna (our tour operator of Nepal Mother House Treks), and his staff were kind and professional, and they helped make the trip to Gokyo Chola Pass the best it could be for us. Nepal is a beautiful place with its scenery that takes your breath away, and the people were so friendly. We would recommend this trip to any adventuresome person. Thanks Again Karna.

    Honest, Reliable and Fair Prices

    Hi, I used Nepal Mother House Tours for two trips when I was in Nepal last Summer. First, we did a 10-day trip to Langtang National Park. The guide, logistical setup, and gave great advice on what to bring on the trip. We had a great time About a month later I set up another trip to Upper Mustang. We were gone 18 days and it required much more planning. Again, they gave me great advice, set me up with an outstanding guide, took care of all of the trip logistics and we had a trip of a lifetime. The other thing I can say about Karna is that he is a man of integrity, he punctual and organize a great trip for you at a fair price. Here is a link to an iMovie post on Youtube of pictures and short Video Clips made from my Langtang Adventure.

    Nepal is a tough place to travel and prepares and expect the unexpected ...but it can be a life-changing event.

    Tsum Valley & Manaslu Circuit

    This was my first time in Nepal. I went with a friend who had been many times before. We chose Nepal Mother trekking because of their professional and courteous staff. My friend had used them before, and believe me, they were great. We took a 25-day trek starting in Arughat Bazar up the Tsum valley, then back to the Manaslu Circuit up over Larkya La (5160 meters) high pass and down to Besi Sahar. The guide (and Owner) were great. He dealt with changing conditions on the trek, found us really nice places for overnight, and was very helpful on the trek. We did homestays in the Tsum Valley and he found our comfortable accommodations. These overnight stays really allowed us to get to know how the local people lived. We were able to communicate with them through the guide and find out about their families, their culture, and their way of life. Just the experience of that part of the trip was worth the whole trip.

    Karna (the guide) kept track of changing weather conditions along the route and had us acclimated well by the time we reached the higher elevations. Even though I brought with me medicine for elevation sickness I did not have any need for it, since our guide did have us acclimated. To be honest, I had never been that high in altitude and was very worried about that part of the trip, but like I said it was not any problem at all. The porters that the company hired were extremely helpful and friendly. We ended up learning several Nepalese card games and enjoyed playing them with the porters and the guide.

    For anyone planning a trek, I would highly recommend checking out Nepal Mother House. I was lucky to have such a great company for my first trek and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great experience for their trek.

    Everest Base Camp Trek with Nepal Mother House Treks

    When I plan to visit Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek, I browsed through the numerous 'Trek operators' on the net, and Nepal Mother House stands out among the rest. there are good reasons for choosing Nepal Mother House - fast response to all my queries. When everything was set, I was in Kathmandu with Mr. Karna Rana himself at the Airport to meet me, a surprise indeed. Even though I was trekking solo, he provided me with an English-speaking Guide and a strong porter. The three of us got along very well throughout the Everest Base Camp Trek (14 days).

    I am satisfied with the whole trip and the package which was tailored to my requirements. For the extraordinary service, I am returning again to Nepal for the Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Base Camp Trek in March 2013.

    Himalaya Trekking in EBC

    If considering trekking in the Himalayas, I would strongly recommend contacting Karna at the Nepal Mother House. This adventure company is very professional and Karna has a wonderful manner.

    Initially, we had arranged only a porter and guide through The Nepal Mother House. The connecting flights to Lukla and accommodation were arranged elsewhere. When we arrived in Kathmandu, we were informed that our flights were canceled, this had a knock-on effect on our accommodation arrangements and we were having difficulties with making alternate arrangements.

    When we went to Karna's office to explain our dilemma, he took full responsibility for the situation and arranged all of our trekking necessities (and gave us tea).

    We found ourselves with extra days in Kathmandu due to the changes so Karna kindly took us on a tour of the Temples and the city highlights and ensured we had an excellent experience of Kathmandu as well as the trek to Everest base camp.

    His spoken English is excellent, which is priceless when you find yourself in the overwhelming city of Kathmandu.

    I cannot speak highly enough of the Nepal Mother House,

    Extra Mile to ABC' by JK

    I was very lucky in April of this year to have Nepal Mother House Tours recommended to me. Annapurna Base Camp Trek was my first ever trek and so I wanted an enjoyable and well-organized trip to the Annapurna Sanctuary. My motivation to do this trip was to raise awareness and money for underprivileged children in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I set up a Facebook event and asked Karna if he wouldn't mind posting daily reports of my progress, he did this conscientiously and with photographs from his personal collection. This allowed my family and friends to follow my 9-day trek to ABC. And have done Annapurna Circuit and Everest Base Camp with Nepal Mother House Treks. To me this was good service and yes, Karna did go the extra mile for my cause, thank you!

    5 Days Unforgettable Trek in Annapurna!

    I went on a 5 day trek in the Annapurna area and Karna and his porters did a great job! They were so patient and helpful to me through those uphill stairs, snow and ice and ALL. The folks at Mother House helped make it an unforgettable trek for me!
