My Dad & I traveled to Nepal in January 2016. It was the trip of a lifetime & our trip wouldn't have been the same without Raj. I would 100% recommend Malung Treks & Expedition to any and all of my friends & family traveling to Nepal.
Last September I’ve been in Nepal with my friends Jolanda and Jannie. Jolanda discovered the Himalayan mountains already some years ago and she was very enthusiastic about her tour with Raj Kumar and his company Malung Treks & Expedition. Because of her positive experiences, we choose for Raj and his team again. We booked the 12 days Annapurna Basecamp (ABC) trekking. It was possible to make some changes and extensions in the program. We appreciated this flexibility and the personal attention of Raj during the trip. Raj was our guide and we had two attentive and friendly carriers. Everything was well arranged. We didn’t have to worry about anything. So we had a very relaxing holiday. Maybe I will come back to Nepal to show my husband the amazing nature and culture of Nepal. There’s no doubt about the company. I will choose Malung Treks & Expedition again, because of the professional and personal approach of Raj Kumar. He is a good guy to his family, his team, his customers and the Nepalese population.
Let me start by saying how blown away I was by the wonderful staff at Malung Treks. Raj is a kind, and very professional coordinator who went above and beyond to make our trek a thoroughly wonderful experience. Right from the start, Raj (owner/manager) and Bal Kumar Rai (our lead guide) greeted us at the airport with smiling faces and served our every need, while properly informing us of any upcoming changes. Bal is the kindest and most genuine person I have met, he kept up with our groups strange sense of humor, and answered every question with very understandable english. Our trek was FANTASTIC, we did the EBC and Kalapathur trek for a total of 13 days. Having Bal speak on our behalf made the trip much more enjoyable and gave us insight to things most other groups were surely missing. We went to see a local culture market in Namche Bazar, with no other tourists! and our downtime was well spent, socializing and singing with Bal Kumar and our Porter, Madan.
Overall, for the price, I couldnt have had a better trip anywhere. I will be coming back to Nepal, and Malung Treks will be my go to trekking choice.
My journey to EBC didnt start yesterday, last week, or even last year. It started over 10 years ago when my father trekked to EBC. Since then, it has been a priority to trek there as well. Malung Treks & Expeditions were AMAZING in helping me reach this goal. They took care of everything. Topping that, our guide, Bal Kumar Rai, was FANTASTIC. He was friendly, knowledgable, kind, funny and took great care of us during our trek. He is experienced in all the Nepal regions, which gives him a diverse sense of the expedition you choose. For us, we not only got to trek, but we got local reccomendations of things we should do during our trek that became some of the highlights of our time in Nepal. I cannot stress enough how happy we are with Bal, and how he is not only a wonderufl guide, but has become a respected friend. We appreciate his help and guidence, and the help of the entire Malung Team in making this expedition memorable and exciting.
We did this trek with addition of Poon Hill this September. The views from Poon Hill and ABC are breathtaking but during remaing days of the trek they are limitted since the trail leads through a deep valley. The trek is more strenuous than it seems to be because of a number of steep up and down stairs climbs required to cross a few valleys. All in all the views from ABC are worth it. After the trek we can firmly recommend Malung Treks to anyone. Raj is a professional manager who can arrange everything within a minute or so, starting from airport pick up and drop off, flight tickets including picturesque mountain flights, all the trekking suff ending with relaxing side trip do Chitwan to rest after all the days of walking or Kathmandu sightseeing. Bal Kumar Magar, who was our guide, is one of the nicest people I have met in my life. Despite of his young age he knows the Himalayan trains every day. He is always there to answer any question or concern always willing to adjust the itinerary to a your needs, no matter if if means extending or shortening the walking day. I highly recommend Bal and Malung Treks to everyone.
