    EBC and Kala Pattar - Outstanding trip, I would use this company again! no questions asked!!!”

    My friend and I booked a trip to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar! it was fantastic, our guide was very good, spoke good English and looked after all of our needs thoroughly! Our guide Kieron made sure we were well fed and had plenty of water! Our trip was challenging but Kieron made us feel that we were in no rush and that we could go at our own pace. We had a great time and were looked after in every way, Kieron made sure our health was good and checked regularly and that we had no symptoms of altitude sickness.

    Dealing with Karna was helpful, he always responded promptly, putting our minds at ease with regards to my first experience of high-altitude trekking Karna was very welcoming when we arrived in Nepal and the whole time we were in Nepal. He even came to greet us before we left for the airport to wish us luck on our onward travel!!!

    Overall we were taken great care of from start to finish! and I wouldn't even think of using any other company in Kathmandu!

    Everest 3 Passes Trek

    We did the Everest 3 Passes Trek with Nepal Mother House treks. Although we booked for a group trek, we were the only couple, so we could enjoy a private guide and porter.
    Everything before the trek (from email communication with Karna to personal meetings in Kathmandu with Karna and the guide) was flawless. We immediately felt that we had made the perfect choice with Mother House treks.
    The trek itself was physically demanding but rewarding, beautiful, amazing, and unforgettable. Our guide, Bamseding, was very skilled and reliable. We felt very safe with him. He was very protective and made sure we were ok all the time. We were 12 days on our trek when the devastating earthquake happened. We were lucky to be in a teahouse the moment the earth shook. Also with the aftershock, we were lucky. After the quake, our guide got the news that his house was devastated... It was horrible for him. But his first concern was to get us back safe to Lukla and Kathmandu. He is a remarkably good man and forever in our hearts!
    When thinking of taking a trek in Nepal, whether in the Everest region or in Annapurna, just hire Nepal Mother House treks. They are a local company (so the money goes directly to the people in Nepal, with no foreign influence), they have a lot of knowledge and use the right guides and porters. Taking a 3-week trek is still one of the best decisions we have ever made. The Himalayas are amazing and we are glad that we chose Karna and Bamseding.

    Every word we wrote came from our hearts. Our trekking in Nepal has changed us as humans. We will definitely return later! Big recommend!

    Fantastic Trek In Tsum Valley Trip With Nepal Mother House

    I did a 14 day Tsum Valley trip with Nepal Mother House in Feb 2015. Karna responded quickly to all of my questions and helped me pick out the best tour. He was also able to organize the trek permits even though I was going solo. Once in Kathmandu finalizing arrangements and meeting the guide went very smoothly. The track itself was fantastic. Beautiful scenery everywhere and all the details taken care of so all I needed to do was walk.

    the trip was a great value and the company was completely honest and up front in their pricing. I highly recommend them.

    Upper Mustang, EBC, Island Peak

    I have used this agency twice, once in June/July 2014 for a trek in the Upper Mustang area, Jomsom to Lo-Manthang, and once in December 2014 for a trek from Lukla to Island Peak and EBC/Kala Patthar.

    The company's CEO, Karna Rana is incredibly service-minded and is very flexible and helpful in the planning process, and he will answer your e-mails in the blink of an eye.

    Nepal mother house will arrange domestic air tickets and other prepurchases beforehand, so you don't have to worry about anything other than the weather, and when that goes wrong they will find a way by bus or jeep.

    Absolutely recommended!

    An Absolute Getaway Trip to Tsum Valley

    In December 2014 I joined Nepal Mother House for a 14-day Tsum Valley trip. It was my first time in Kathmandu and really didn't know what to expect. My flight landed in Kathmandu on a dark cold night. Alone, confusion and worry were what have written on my face. But things got a little better the moment I saw Karna and his guide. As another reviewer has mentioned, Karna is very attentive and helpful. The quick response to all the emails is part of the reason why I chose this agency. The trip to Tsum Valley was one of the best Christmas presents I have given myself. Spending Christmas day in the wilderness and total disconnect from the rest of the world is one of the most amazing trips I can ever experience. The guide who is also my porter is very attentive. Although communication can be a minor problem overall I was happy with their service, especially the after-sales service that Karna has provided. Keep it up, Karna!"

    Manaslu Circut and Tsum Valley, Nov. 2014

    We finalized the trip itinerary and plan at the office in Kathmandu with Karna prior to leaving resulting in a flexible, realistic itinerary, with rest days, and side-trips to points of interest (gompas, nunnery, etc).

    Guides and porters were very service-oriented, helpful, enthusiastic, fun, and informative regarding culture, trails, landmarks, wildlife, etc. They went the extra step to secure hotel rooms for us in advance by sending one of our guides ahead to the next village after lunch to reserve hotel rooms. Rooms were waiting for us with our bags when we arrived! A good group to Manaslu Circuit Trek with Tsum Valley with!

    Reliable, friendly, good price for Annapurna Circuit trekking.....and highly recommended!”

    This year I did my first trekking in Nepal: the Annapurna Circuit.
    The agency:
    After requesting information about the Annapurna Circuit trekking and comparing prices at several tourist offices in Kathmandu I came across the Nepal Mother House agency.
    Karna, the friendly manager, gave a very clear explanation (his English is perfect by the way!) of what I could expect to see and encounter on the trek and also advised me what to bring (which I really appreciated as a first-timer here).

    The guide:
    My guide Jayaram was simply perfect. He was great fun to do the Annapurna Circuit Trekking with, knew a lot about everything we encountered during the trek and was very polite and helpful. He always arranged nice rooms in the nicest tea/ guesthouses and also other travelers mentioned that he was a good guide. And just like Karna, his English was very good.

    During the trek, my friendly guide and Karna had contact by phone to make sure everything was still ok and whether I was still happy about my trek: they are really trying their best to make the trip as enjoyable as possible.

    The price:
    The price was very reasonable and the best out of the (6) agencies I visited. Other tourists I met were paying more for their guides than I did.

    Overall my trekking was wonderful and so was my guide. In the future, I'll do more trekking in Nepal and will definitely trek with this company again!

    Thank you very much Karna & Jayaram and see you again soon!

    Excellent service - highly recommend!”

    I did two treks with Nepal Mother House and highly recommend using this company. From initial contact, Karna always replied to any email queries without delay. I did both the Poon Hill trek and Everest Base Camp and both guides and porters were awesome to trek with. They were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They were also very flexible with the itinerary.

    During the Poon Hill trek, I was particularly impressed and grateful to Karna and my guide Bibek. On the morning we were due to leave my partner broke the news that I was feeling ill and could not travel as planned. Karna was very accommodating and organized alternative travel arrangements for us to arrive in Pokhara. He even took my partner to a local pharmacy at 7 am in the morning to buy me some medicine.

    After reaching Everest Base Camp I started to experience symptoms of altitude sickness and my guide Kapil was very attentive and flexible with the itinerary when we decided to go down rather than continue to Cho La Pass. He is also fun to play cards with during the evenings in teahouses :).
