What our clients say about us
We just came back from our Gokyo Trek with Bipin. Overall we can say that it has been an unforgettable and great experience. Even prior to starting the trek until the very last second of it, Bipin took care of us very well. He left no question unanswered, helped us whereever possible and was an excellent guide during the whole tour. He is a very young but extremely experienced guide - he provides excellent service and is very engaged. Everything went very well and as planned. We cannot imagine having done this with anyone else - without a doubt we can truly recommend Bipin and Himalayan Gateway Trek! If we decide to do tour again - Bipin is the only person we would want to it with!- Daniela
We went trekking with Himalayan Gateway Trek in June 2019 in EBC + Chola Pass route. Bipin is a company owner and also our guide for this trek. This was the first time for me and my husband for the several days trekking. It was very fun and impressive. Bipin is a professional guide. He took excellent care of us. He made sure that everything was going to be good while trekking. He paid attention to every single detail. For example, he brought some fruit and food from Kathmandu in order to serve us while the trek. He also got us to measure the oxygen level in blood everyday. My husband got a knee problem while the trek but he survived because Bipin gave him some knee supporters. The company will also lend you some waterproof duffel, sleeping bag, and crampon with no cost. We were having amazing experience from this trip. I really recommend the Himalayan Gateway Trek. We are sure that we will be back again!- Pichittra p
This route is suitable for beginners (like our group). I started exercising 3 months before coming and it worked. The food and facilities are a lot better than we expected.
Our group planned and prepared for this trip for 4 months. We hardly knew anything about trekking in Nepal before then. The agency is professional, flexible and trustworthy. They answered our questions and gave us good recommendation.
When we first met our guide, he asked us about our aim of coming here. I couldn’t find an answer for myself. (Actually, I just needed to take a break from my busy job.) But during this trip, the nature, the people, the guide and the porters fulfilled my empty answer.
We had a warm welcome since the first day we met. Our well experienced guide explained about our plan and the should do and don’ts before starting our trip. He seemed to know every rock and twig in the mountains. He repeated the names with the heights of the mountains again and again until we could remember most of them 😅. (So we made him our geography teacher!) Our guide and porters are very thoughtful, and caring. They watched out our every step, make sure that we are good enough to trek and warm enough to sleep. We felt like our brothers were taking care of us. The view of the mountains from MBC to ABC is so magnificent that I won’t forget it. And I found friendship all along my way. A quote said “Happiness is way of travel, not the destination”, and I agree.
Can’t wait till the next trip. Totally recommend Himalayan Gateway Trek to be your company!
I and my friends had an fantastic experience with Himalayan gateway trek to annapurna circuit in October 2018.It was our first visit in Nepal.They did a great job organising for our entire trip.And they made it 21 days in Nepal that memorable journey for us.
Before our trip,Bipin was very helpful and answer all of our questions fully.
When we arrived,we had very warm welcome from Binod.Meeting and briefing with Binod in Kathmandu before we started trek was helpful.We were given a good and clean -20 c sleeping bag and duffel bags to take with us on our trek.
During the trek, Our Guide Kamal And Porters Zyani and Shami did an exellent job.We couldn't have finished the trek without them. Kamal was wonderful in all respects.He support and encouraged us.Kamal was very kind ,responsible,friendly and available.He also good knowledge on the mountain ,wide life and Nepal culture.Kamal alway told us many interesting things about nature and local areas .Everyday after dinner,He would brief and well inform us about what our plan was for the next day. He was listening all we need.He did very good organising everything as transports,meal,accomodations.All the guesthouse we stayed were comfortable and had best view.He alway remind us drinking sufficient water ,concerned our health and mental condition.Beside the trek,He also introduce us to the local set meal "Dal Bhat".He know where with the delicious Dal Bhat,now we really
love Dal Bhat.And he made the Apple Fritter for us, it's so good.And he alway brought fresh and tasty apple for us..He helped us solved solutions and all problems.He made us feel safe and worry free the whole trek. We couldn't have asked for better guide.
And our porters were amazing too.Zyani is female porter.She was young and very strong.Although she had to carry heavy up and down mountains but she very patient and never complaint.She sweet ,friendly and lively.I love her laughter and beauty smile.On the way I always heard anothers trekkers called her "super woman". And another porter Shami the brother was great too .He worked as Professtional and reliable.
Annapurna circuit itself was fantastic,stunning view,The scenery changed eveyryday.And Trekking with the team is amzing experience.We are relly grateful to have them in this journey.

EBC+Chola Pass Trek
I did a solo trip trekking with them. They are very professional. First when I arrived into Kathmandu Mr. Bipin had explained me about the trip and asked if I have all equipments ready for the trip.This is really good because you wouldnt want to go on a trek with something missing and probably won’t be able to find it in the mountain. First day that I have to fly to lukla I suppose to go on the 1st flight but then my flight shift to 3rd flight but then my problem was really well solve by the company they changed from airplane to helicopter instead because they knew I have exactly days to do the trek. During the trek,my guide(Mr.Dawa) and my porter ( Mr.Minma) both of them were being very helpful to me. They are a good team.The guide is very knowledgeable and professional. I really had fun and enjoy during the trek. At the end of trip, i had a farewell dinner(typical Nepali dinner) with Mr.Binod which was really nice(the food/the traditional dance). Finally,thank you very much.If I chance to do the trek in Nepal again I would definitely choose them.
Great route with less people, brilliant view, and awesome guide. We had Binod as our guide. This is the best one ever for my Nepal visits. He has strong mindset of service mind, taking care of us like family. He always provide useful information about the route and mountains we've seen. Also well prepared and good planning for our itinerary. I'm right now planning my next trip!- Pitchapong S
