Dear Royal Mountain Travel,
After returning to Germany this week, the impressions of Nepal still linger and reside deep within our memories. There will always be a special place in our hearts for the group of Nepali who accompanied us onto the Annapurna Base Camp. Our guide Ram Tamang and our porters Hari and Chancha Lama could not have done a better job. From the day he introduced himself, Ram always put emphasis on our holiday, our goal to reach ABC and our health as the most important factors. We immediately felt we were in good hands and we have not been disappointed. Ram’s knowledge of the trek, the Nepali culture and his way of dealing with people left a lasting impression not only on me but on all of us.
We could go on pointing out all which has been great and since there has not been a single incident Ram could not solve, we want to cut a long story a bit shorter and tell you that we could not have asked for a better guide, more reliable porters or a better package. Ram delivered a marvelous job from beginning to end and you can be glad to have guides like him in your service. It is solely because of him and his team that we will look back amicably certain to return in the not too distant future.
Thank you Ram, Hari and Chancha Lama!
We are looking forward to seeing you again.

My father and I had an unforgettable trip in Nepal in November 2014. We did a short trekking in the Kathmandu Valley. Our guides were probably the best you can get! SANU KANCHA TAMANG and KUMAR TAMANG. So I really have to write a review, which I never did before. They were taking really good care of us. We had lots of fun, the guys were singing for us, knew nice places to eat and drink. Were always observant for the crazy traffic in Nepal. We as tourist do not know the Nepalese habits, etc. They are flexible, friendly and good fun! And maybe just as important: Sanu explained us enthusiastically about the landscapes & the culture. He was still taken care of us when his job was already done. He arranged a quicker pick-up in Baktapur. He was really caring. So we definitely recommend these guys to other travelers.
Thank you Sanu and Kumar! We had an amazing time!

We (couple from Holland) had a very nice trekking in Nepal, beginning of November ’14. Eco-tour in Annapurna region. Our guide was Indra Tamang. He is a very cheerfull, modest and adequate guide! We had lots of laughter with Indra. He knows the region good and arranged everything we needed or asked. Thanks Indra! Good luck with your job as a guide in Nepal!

From october 20 till November 13 we spent our holidays in Nepal. Our motivation to go to Nepal consisted in many different trekkings to explore different places in Nepal. During our trekking trough the Kathmandu valley, the Annapurna range and in Jomsom we were accompanied by Mr. Sanu Kancha Tamang. Mr. Sanu Kancha Tamang was highly motivated to explain us everything we liked to know about the landscape, the population and their livelihood. In every situation he cared well about our findings and responded on our wishes, especially when we liked to change the itinerary on the Annapurna trekking. In difficult situations, when our flight to Jomsom had been cancelled, he managed the changes in the itinerary according to our wishes. On the fly back from Jomsom to Pokhara he managed to get an earlier flight for us, otherwise we would have had missed it due to difficult wind conditions. Thanks to him and your travel agency we could have some unforgettable experiences in Nepal

Our trip from october 16.-23. 2014 was an outstanding experience to us. We booked the tour from Kathmandu via Pokhara, Kande, Pothana, Landruk, Gandruk, Tadapani, Gorepani (Poon Hill), Thikehungga and back to Pokhara. After some personal trouble at tour start (a heart attack – where our guide delivered the perfect support) we had a fine and relaxing tour. Even when we were really exhausted after arriving the guesthouse of the current legs. We enjoyd the wonderful scenery and the explanation of our guide as well as the hospitality of our small team. We would like to thank you for this outstanding experience which we wouldn´t have enjoyed so much without the tremenduous support of our guide Jagat Mantamang and his porter Krishna. Even the hotel in Pokhara and the flight next day from Pokhara to Kathmandu with the impressive scenery of the Himalaya was at its finest.
Thanks again and thanks to your team

I recently booked a last minute trek of the Annapurna mountain range through Royal Mountain after a completion of a G Adventures tour. I booked the trek for myself and 7 other companions. Our tour guide was Jagatman Tamang and his assistant was Krishna Lama. Both Jagat and Krishna were absolutely amazing! Since we were a larger group, we each had different levels of trekking experience. Jagat and Krishna did a wonderful job of keeping the entire group on an equal level that everyone enjoyed. They both were very knowledgeable and made the trek very fun for us.
Since I am a travel agent within the United States, I have experienced many different group tour guides with other companies. I can honestly say, Jagat and Krishna were some of the best guides I have ever had. I will be recommending them to any future clients I have who wish to visit Nepal. I can not express how much gratitude I have for them. They truly made our trek an absolutely unforgettable experience.

We recently used Royal Mountain to guide us on a very short trek up to Poon Hill. Our guides were extremely competent and very helpful. Jagatman and Krishna made sure that we were all safe and informed about the culture of the region. We had a very large group of 8 people, all with very diverse abilities and they still succeeded to get us all up the mountain together and safely and provide appropriate accommodations for us all. I would definitely request them again on my next trip to Nepal.

Thanks for this 3 weeks in Nepal, which were characterized by their employee to an exciting and relaxing vacation. Your drivers were all on time, friendly and had good advice. The leaders of Kathmandu and Patan were very competent , answered our questions and we had enough time to take pictures and own explorations. Our guide Indra Tamang and the two porter Deve and Penna made our walk to a highlight . Friendly, good-humored, meeting our wishes , we walked six days , the day ended every evening with very good food and playing cards together. We were impressed by the mountains and the nature that we have experienced during our hike and trekking tour in this beautiful area although, this experience was only possible by our three companions . If anyone is undecided ,contact Royal Mountain Travel ,they can plan the trip and then you have just to enjoy .
The next hike in Nepal for us again with Indra , Deve and Penna .

A couple of weeks are gone since we have left Nepal.
I would like to thank you for the beautiful holiday we had. Nearly everything was perfect for us. The program was very good and exciting – a bit of everything, trekking, culture, religion, city, countryside, jungle…We enjoyed our weeks very much. Now, as I see all my pictures, I remember all the days and evenings on the trek with our guides and the nice and friendly porters. They all were so cooperative with everything. It was an experience I’ll never forget.
I will recommend Royal Mountain Travel to everyone who wants to visit Your nice and exciting country.
Thank you for everything.
Namaste and Dhanyaabaad!

Our trek on Poonhill led us through a real enchanted forest where we would not have been surprised if trolls or fairies had crossed our path. Even the steep stairways have very clearly showed me my physical limits, the scenery was so spectaculair but more impressive were the people of Nepal led by our guide Indra Bomjam and our two porters Pena and Dev from Royal Mountain Travel. With their music (from mobile phones) and their singing they made in spite of hail and thunderstorms always the best of moods. We had a lot of fun, playing cards together in the evening with them. A cultural encounter that would not be possible, if you travel by yourself. I think it´s not necessary to mention, that Indra could answered all our questions. Even the ones that came after our journey. He answered via Facebook. We were told so beautifully: “Once Nepal is not enough” And the next time we come back definitely go with Indra, Pena and Dev!
