DUE lunghi trekking con l'agenzia MALUNG TREKS & EXPEDITION
Il 1° Trekking di 25 giorni nel KANCHANJANGA CONSERVATION AREA;
il 2° Trekking di 15 giorni nel MAKALU BARUN NATIONAL PARK.
Due trekking impegnativi e faticosi, ma anche entusiasmanti, sia per le bellezze della natura, sia per la cordiale accoglienza dei nepalesi nei vari villaggi attraversati.
Abbiamo percorso lunghi e impervi sentieri attraversando foreste di bambù, rododendri, corbezzoli, e pini himalajani fino ad giungere in alto, vicino ai ghiacciai oltre i 4500 m ;
siamo arrivati ai Campi Base del Kangchanjanga (5100 m) , dello Yalung e del Makalu (4800m).
Montagne e cime spettacolari, non solo i tre Kanchanjanga ( 8586-8473 e 8476 m ),
il monte Yalung Kang (8505 m) e il Makalu (8463 m), ma anche cime bellissime e imponenti quali i 4 Kabru, il monte Jannu e il Kangbachen ( tutte sei tra i 7300 e 7900 m).
40 GIORNI DI TREKKING
accompagnati dalla guida PRAKASH RAI
e dal portatore BAHADUR RAI ;
5 STELLE (?????) splendenti e meritate per entrambi !!
professionale, ottimamente preparato non solo per la specifica conoscenza dei territori attraversati, ma anche competente nell'indicare con i loro nomi le montagne più belle, i nomi dei fiumi, delle valli, dei vari villaggi e località; colloquiale e disponibile a rispondere alle nostre frequenti domande su usanze e costumi della gente locale.
Un merito particolare e raro è stata la capacità di Prakash nel saper comunicare e gestire il rapporto per un tempo così lungo con due clienti non più giovani.
La cortesia, la pazienza e la simpatia di Prakash la ricorderemo con riconoscenza e affetto!
Il portatore...BOLE ! Super ! Forte, coraggioso e prudente nei percorsi più difficili.
Un uomo riservato e sempre gentile, sempre di buon umore e cortese anche quando la stanchezza a fine giornata era talvolta notevole.
Un apprezzamento eccellente (?????) anche per mister KUMAR RAI, il Boss
della Malung Treks & Expedition.
Un uomo gentile, professionale e ospitale.
Affidabile al 100% !!
Claudio e Renza ringraziano Kumar, Prakash e Bole per le rispettive loro competenze, per la disponibilità e spontanea onestà nel gestire il rapporto con noi, qualità e capacità che ci hanno permesso di realizzare questo viaggio, di iniziarlo felicemente con una collana di fiori gialli e di concluderlo con una sciarpa al collo.
Un caro saluto Claudio e Renza

TWO lengthy trekking with the Agency MALUNG TREKS & EXPEDITION
The 1st Trekking, duration 25 days in KANCHANJANGA CONSERVATION AREA;
The 2nd Trekking, duration 15 days in MAKALU BARUN NATIONAL PARK.
Two challenging and difficult trekking, but also exciting not only for the beauty of the natural landscape, but also for the lovely welcome of the Nepalese people in the several villages that we encountered.
We walked long and hard trails through forests of bamboo, rhododendron, mulberries and Himalayan pines, eventually reaching the glaciers, situated above 4500 meters.
Spectacular mountain heights, not only the three Kanchajanga (8586-8473 and 8476 meters), Mount Yahung Kang (8463 meters) but also the awesome and majestic heights of the 4 Kahru, Mount Jannm and the Kanfbachen (all six between 7300 and 7900 meters).
40 DAYS TREKKING
With guide PRAKASH RAJ and porter BAHADUR RAJ
5 bright and deserved STARS (*****) for both!!
PRAKASH RAJ excellent guide: professional, extremely well prepared, knowledgeable of the territories through which we travelled, pointing out, by name, the beautiful mountains, rivers, villages and other locations. Pleasantly conversant, ready to answer our frequent questions on the customs and traditions of the peoples of the land.
A particular rare trait, his ability to amiably communicate and interact for such a long period of time and with two clients ‘not so young anymore’.
Pr. Prakash’s kindness, patience and congeniality will be remembered with gratitude and affection.
The Porter, BOLE! Superb! Strong, courageous and prudent on the more difficult trails. A reserved man, always kind and cheerful even when the fatigue at the end of the day was at times considerable.
Much appreciation (*****) also to Mr RAJ KUMAR RAI, the Boss of Malung Treks & Expedition.
A kind man, professional and hospitable. 100% reliable!!
Claudio and Renza thank Kumar, Prakash and Bole for their respective commitment, availability and honesty in all their dealings with us, their quality and capability have allowed us to realize this journey, beginning with a necklace of yellow flowers and ending with a scarf around our neck.
Best Regards, Claudio and Renza
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.
