Hari is one graceful dancer and nothing short of amazing! Everything was well-organized, from arrival in Nepal to the whole Everest BC trek and all the way to our departure. I loved the place he brought us for the welcome dinner, the food was delicious and cultural show was entertaining. Hari would accommodate all of our needs. His whole team would carefully monitor and look out for the well being of each and every one of us Filipinos, they would make sure everyone is having a sense of convenience especially at the lodges we stayed at. If I remember correctly, 9 out of 11 nights we stayed at lodges with private bathroom. We never stayed in dorm rooms. Now that's a real treat! They also brought with them apples for the whole group to eat that lasted for the whole trek. During meals, they would always ask us what we want to eat and drink, and all of them would serve us and wouldn't eat until we were all satisfied. Our group had a lot of questions and concerns too, and all of those were patiently answered and addressed. Unfortunately, during the trek, some of us acquired AMS, good thing Hari is very well experienced, taking appropriate measures for our friends who were not feeling well. On the other hand, Madan, our wonderful assistant guide, would always ensure our safety and be attentive to us. During break times, we played cards, made jokes, shared stories with them.
The service and hospitality they have given us, it's more than what 5-star hotels could offer. Somehow, I feel like the amount we paid is relatively inexpensive compared to what they've provided to us. Hari and Madan, they were both so professional and yet they come off as being friendly, humble, kind, warm and trustworthy, above all. I love them both and I'd trust them with my life!

A few weeks ago we successfully trekked the Annapurna Circuit and Base Camp. This was my second trek with Hari and the first with my daughters, Megan and Natalie. During our three-week adventure, Hari demonstrated great planning and showed great presence--this is why I will join him again.
Hari knew well the sections of the Circuit we needed to travel by jeep or by foot. Hari planned each day with skill so that Megan, who could only be with us for two weeks, reached her desired destination, and Natalie and I completed our trek to Base Camp as planned. Hari’s intelligence, knowledge, and years of trekking experience were so appreciated by our family.
Throughout our trek, Hari was attentive to our needs, while being outgoing, patient, and personable. He's a man of integrity anyone can trust; and he's an excellent communicator who keeps his promises while being polite, straightforward, and reliable.
I highly recommend Hari of Nepal Hiking Trek to any prospective trekker. I look forward to my next adventure with Hari, knowing that we will share many warm-hearted laughs along the trail.

My wife and I went to Nepal in Nov. 2017. We spent about 21 days in this incredible country, being 14 days trekking in the Everest region.
Since my first contact with Hari (the owner of the company) I could see that this was not an ordinary trekking company. Hari was very dedicated in answering every single doubt in very short time. He would quickly adapt the requests for change in the circuit and sent us very competitive offers. At the end, we decided to go for our trip to Nepal with Nepal Hiking Trek team.
After all the chating and e-mails exchange, I was a little bit disapointed when Hari told us he would not be able to guide us. However, we met our guide (Raj) and he was just as dedicated as Hari. As some other coments here mentioned, we also did not have to worry about where we would be staying, what/if we would be having for meals, permits or any other deal. Even when we were in that crazyness that is the Kathmandu airport to get our flight to Lukla, we were confident that Raj would manage to get us in the plane.
Among all, we could notice that our guide (Raj) and our porter (Git) were outstanding! Even other groups that made friendship with us during the trek were impressed to see how these two guys were professional and, at the same time, friendly and dedicated. We felt very well supported during all the trekking days.
In the other days I could notice that the guides (for Kathmandu Valley and Chitwan National Park tour) were dedicated to provide a good experience.
At last, the dedication of the whole staff and their concern for providing good service were notorious.
Considering everything, we believe that we had an excellent support from the team of Nepal Hiking Trek and we would definitelly recomend you chose them as your guide service while visiting Nepal.

Overall had a great time trekking with Hari, everything was always well organized and planned. We never had to worry about permits or where we would stay or what we would eat, grab your gear and head out on a trek of a lifetime, you won't regret it!
I spent 3 weeks trekking the Annapurna Circuit and Basecamp with my sister and dad, the trip was active, beautiful, as well as inspiring by walking through villages you're able to feel the culture more than any destination vacation.

I just completed my fourth trek, the Annapurna Circuit, with Hari, the owner of Nepal Hiking Trek. Since I had done this trek before, we improvised a lot, for example, using the beautiful Himalayan town of Manang as a base for 4 day trips.
As usual, Hari worked hard to make every day special, and even did some advance work to make sure we stayed in places with western toilets ;) He's also good company, informative, amicable and funny.
I highly recommend Hari and his growing, successful company, Nepal Hiking Trek.
