Dear Sir or Madam,
Our trip has been unforgettable and full of new experiences for us. The mix of experience was very rich and the bandwidth of what was expecting us in Nepal was so wide. From experiencing life in the incredible city of Kathmandu to trekking through the Annapurna region – fantastic!
The fact that we could enjoy our trip so ultimately was mainly due to a very good overall organization. We were very satisfied with the overall planning and implementation.
Our guide (sorry, we did not note his name) during the two days in Kathmandu told us a lot about the city, the country and the people and answered our numerous questions extensively. He managed it to bring us into the right mood for your country as we ended up here for us in a completely different world.
Staying in the Sapana lodge was gorgeous. The staff was extremely friendly. The organization of our trips (elephant riding, Canoeing and Jungle Walk) has functioned perfectly.
Our trekking was exhausting but exciting in a breathtakingly, beautiful nature. The fact that we were able to enjoy it that much and were also able to overcome the effort so well depended in an essential way on the great guiding team of Rajesh Shrestha and Diamond (we forgot his nepali name). All the time we felt well supplied and safely. For the care for our well-being as well as the interesting discussions and good mood during the whole trip we would particulary like to say thank you!
Last but not least we were brought from place to place very safely from Madhav Khadka on your crazy streets. And for us it was a nice feeling to be received again by the same person – not least as we ended up with some delay from Pokhara to Kathmandu and did not know how it goes, we were very happy to spot a familiar face in the crowd.
Now we are a few days back in Germany, have many photos shown to our family and friends and told about our holiday for hours. In the end we always came to the conclusion that with the entire organization, from the initial interview with Prakash Dhakal about the Guides in Kathmandu and during the trekking to our driver, we were completely happy.
Each time we would book another trip to Nepal through Royal Mountain Travel.

We have just returned from our trek to Everest base camp with Puspa Jung Kunwar from Royal Mountain Travel. We loved our trek and feel a full sense of achievement having completed a goal we had set ourselves, this would not have been possible if not for our guide Puspa.
From start to finish he was brilliant, he met us only a day after booking our trip and explained in full and answered all our questions and concerns for the following day, he picked us up from our hotel and helped us with every step. He was our alarm clock each morning, offered tiger balm when we had headaches, even carried our bags and waited with us when we had to wait for our helicopter (due to bad weather our flight was cancelled) Even after that he arranged and chased up to ensure we had arrived ok, our transport back to our hotel at the Kathmandu end – even tho we have left him to walk back from Lukla.
Puspa was always eager to help more, during the day he was always pointing out mountains, explaining the traditions and telling us of the local villages – he even took some amazing photos of us to show all of our friends and family back home and help capture our memories.
Puspa is a credit to Royal Mountain Travel who also from start to finish put our concerns to rest with the prompt and professional manner.
We will most definitely be recommending to all.
Thanks again for an amazing and memorable adventure!

Dear Mr. Dhakal,
Through this email, we would like to thank Royal Mountain Travel for making our vacation in Nepal a fantastic experience. During our 2,5 weeks in Nepal we visited Kathmandu and the surrounding valley, Pokhara including trekking and Chitwan. All transfers were arranged in a very professional manner, the cars and drivers were excellent. Our guides were very lovely, speaking English very well and they were able to answer all our questions.
We would especially like to thank our trekking guide Ram Bahadur Tamang. From the very first moment we met him, he was extremely helpfull and understanding of us. As a person, he is very friendly, funny and happy. And as a guide, he proved himself to be very trustworthy and supportive. We are both not very fit and Ram helped us reach Mohare Danda, encouraging us and telling us to take our time, every step of the way. He patiently showed us both the beautiful flora and fauna of Nepal, and taught us about the culture of it’s people. We felt very safe and comfortable in his presence and would like to show our appreciation for him via this email. Please engage him more often in the future, as he had a big part in making our vacation so special and unforgettable and we are sure he will be able to do this for any guests in Nepal in future. We consider him a very good friend, having gotten to know him quite well during our trekking. In addition, our porter Ram was also a very nice young man, carrying our bag with what seamed to be great ease and also helping us to reach our goal.
We will certainly recommend Royal Mountain Travel in general and Ram Tamang in particular to anyone we know wanting to visit your beautiful country.
With kind regards, thank you once again,
– Jan Otto and Ellen

Dear Royal Mountain Travel -Team,
With this email we would like to recommend the trekking-guide Indra Tamang and the porter Buddha Lama and give a positive evaluation for both: From March 25 to March 29 2014 we went on a trekking tour (Poon Hill Trek) with both of them – they were very friendly and also funny, and it was interesting to talk to them about different topics. But they were not too chatty, they also left us for us own when we wanted to. They were well tempered. We always felt safe in their presence.
Thank you – Danybad! – and best wishes – Namaste!

Last September I shared a trip across western Tibet arranged by Royal Mountain Travel together with two friends and two other people from Australia. Baikuntha Simkhada was our tourleader, and we had much fun with him. He is a very amiable guy who looked after us with much thoughtfulness. I always admired him about his profound knowledge of Tibetian culture, he speaks excellent English. He was to us like a very good friend. When he will guide a tour again in the future which could be interesting for me, please let me know.

Feedback for BK
During our guided tour trouht Tibet, Mr. BK (Baikuntha Simkhada) was the responsible Travel Guide for our Group. He did a great job and was able to give us detailed background knowledge about the country, the mountains, the culture and the religion. Mr. BK was always a preasant and sympathic guide and took care about us very well. It was a pleasure to travel with Mr. BK and I would like to thank him for his outanding service and his positive attitude during our trip in Tibet.
Many greetings to him a a nice time and a happy New Year.

Hi Christel !
How are you ? We are just back from Annapurna trek. We booked with Royal Mountain Travel as you recommended us. Just wanted to say many thanks. Despite all around was a little bit commercial than we expected we felt that the tour guide was much better than all the others. He explained everything very well and in perfect English and we was assisting in anything we need. Together Rajju came personally the first day in Kathmandu and the prices were really good.
I think next year we will do Everest base camp ! But will see ! So Thanks from Oscar and myself ! See you around the world.

Michael and I are now settled back home in Australia into our routine of work and play. We had such a fabulous time in Nepal and i just wanted to send you a quick email to please pass on our enormous thanks to Chhosang Tamang and his nephew Soosan – not sure of spelling for either -for looking after us so incredibly well.
Our Annapurna Sanctuary trek went so smoothly – and we loved every minute of it. I would dearly love to be back there right now experiencing again all that we did. It was amazing. Our guide, and his nephew, our sherpa, could not have done a better job and treated us so very well. Their company along the way was very enjoyable too – good humored, sensible and knowledgeable about all we discussed.
I highly recommend them and Royal Mountain Travel and would like to think when we return to do the Everest Base Camp trek perhaps next year, that we could possibly request to have them join us again.
Many thanks for your help in organizing our trip. it was sensational!!!!!

We just wanted to send you an email to say once again how grateful we are for everything you arranged for us. We have had the most amazing time while we have been in Nepal, and we know from talking to other tourists we have met along the way, that not everybody is so lucky.
Padam was an excellent guide, really made us feel very looked after and he was very helpful. He took care of any problems immediately, was always available at any time of day, and willing to be flexible to ensure we got the most from the trek.
Sapana lodge was just unbelievable, and we could see why your clients never want to leave, and then to finish our trip with such an amazing flight to Everest was really special. Thank you so much for everything you and Royal Mountain Travel have done for us, if we come back to Nepal we will definitely contact you again.
