I choose Kailash Himalaya Trek because I had three good experiences before. Since 2005 I cooperate with Kailash Himalaya Trek – under the management of director Mr. Santa Subba – for tours of the Royal Dutch Climbing & Mountaineering Club. 2005: Khumbu Everest Traverse with Kala Patar and Gokyo-Ri 2008: Kangchenjunga Trek to north and south basecamp 2010: Dhaulagiri Trek from Beni to Marpha 2012: Inner Dolpo Trek with Shey Phoksundo National Park During all these tours Mr. Kitap Tamang was our guide. His calmness, kindness, organizational skills, loyalty and strength are unique. He is a nice and professional guide. I can recommend Kailash Himalaya Trek to anyone for all kind of treks in the Himalaya. I want to come back to Nepal in 2013 to visit the Manaslu and Ganesh Himal region. For that trek I will cooperate again with Kailash Himalaya Trek.

Expedition to Putha Hiunchuli (7,246 m)
Dear Santa I wish to express my gratitude to you and your team once again for perfectly organizing our successful 2015 fall expedition to Putha Hiunchuli (7,246 m). In particular my thanks go to Renzen Bothe for his strong and unselfish support from base camp to summit, to Sarbajit Tamang for his incredible creations in the kitchen tent (particularly the Swiss Rösti) and to Ranee Tamang for his distinguished way of serving us in all aspects. I think that Kailash HIMALAYA Treks embodies the way climbers and trekkers from all around the world wish to be assisted in the Nepal of the future. I trust that you will remain one of those outstanding companies. All the best! -Angelo Vedani
Dear potential trekkers, My partner and I signed up for a short ( 6 days – adventure – hiking to Gosaikunda Lake) in Nepal. Overall, it was a very memorable experience full of pleasant memories. The pre-trip organization was excellent, thank you very much Ramesh for all the support; and this was coupled with a great hike guided by Pancha and Khiru through beautiful and picturesque sceneries. I highly recommend Kailash Himalayas Trekking to everyone who is looking to spend a good time in Nepal with a high quality service provider.

Nov 2023 Ardash, Kittap and their team were in charge of the Nepalese leg of our tour. They did and amazing job everything ran smoothly and without a hitch. From boutique hotels to the teahouses in the mountains we received the best service al always with a smile!
I would highly recommend this company to organise your Himalayan travels. They have great connections and fabulous local knowledge which is what is needed by a tour company.
A special mention to our porters…Ranee, Nimraj, Sumen and the rest of the team! They are bloody amazing!! They couldn’t do enough to help us and make our journey a success.
Nepal has been Epic! And they helped make it so. Paddy White -Gloucestershire, UK
EBC and Island Peak Climb – 2022!!
From the moment we were met at the airport Ardash and his team had all areas covered. They made us feel very welcome and safe in Nepal. They had all the Logistics covered to a T and nothing was too much trouble or inconvenience to them.
I had to come down off the mountain due to a ankle injury and they arranged everything from helicopters to the hospital. The teams attention to detail is second to non and would 100% recommend using these guys. I know I certainly will be seeing them again. Thanks guys – RickFerns – 2022
Makalu Base Camp Trek !!
Oct 2019 : This year we made our choice for the Makalu-trek. A beautiful of the beaten trek, with reasonable lodges up till basecamp since a few years. The last time I did this trek is 23 years ago. In those days, there were no lodges after Tashigaon.
Manager Ramesh from Kailash Himalaya Trek proposed to take guide Bhim Bahadur Magar with us.
We are so happy to say that Bhim was really a fantastic guide. His guiding was very professional and so helpful. Not only for us but also fort he porters, in the lodges and in the kitchen. His social behaviour with the locals is great and he is a good cook!
Thanks again Ramesh. Everything was well organised as always.Tom Franken and Peter Schampers, Holland-Tom F
Excellent Organiser that led to wonderful trip!!
Went with Kailash Himalaya Trek for a family trip (including 6 and 11 yr old kids) to Upper Mustang. Organised a jeep, along with a English + Hindi speaking Guide and Driver that made the whole journey over five days very memorable.
The entire trip, starting from Jomsom and back was very well managed and we covered the upper Mustang region upto Lo-Manthang and Muktinath while returning. Stayed in small villages throughout and we were provided good facilities given the conditions and the altitude. They ensured we did not have a problem with food even though we are pure vegetarian.
No words can describe how beautiful the landscape and the scenery was. Special call out to our driver Hikmatji who drove very safely on that terrain. A special call out to our guide Bholaji who made sure we kept good time and handled the kids very nicely as well. The two of them made the whole journey very memorable. Also, this would surely not have been possible without all the planning and co-ordination with Rameshji from Kailash Himalaya Trek.
Once again, we all loved the whole experience and this is surely something that will stay with us for a lifetime. – Vinod Bhatt
Mar 2019 • An amazing trip through stunning landscapes meeting friendly and charming people. I could not recommend this trip or the guides highly enough. Professional, friendly and very knowledgeable, always with a smile on their face!

Apr 2019 • My father (72) and myself (43) decided to go on a trip to Annapurna circ. From the min we contacted Kailash Himalaya we received the most efficient and professional help. Ramesh was very responsive to every request/inquiry we had. When we arrived to Nepal everything was organized beyond our expectations. We had a great guide , so all we had to do was to enjoy the trek. Thank you Ramesh and all Kailash Himalaya team.
If we ever go back to Nepal it will most defiantly be with the assistance of Kailash Himalaya. – Ddyon
Mar 2019 • Solo Few days ago I finished my trek to Langtang valley with assistance of Kailash Himalaya Trek team. As I am a returning customer I can tell again all the best about my guide and porter. This guys are highly professional and I was filling safe and secure every second of my trek. They nicely choose tea houses for night rest, best places for lunch breaks and giving me enough time to stop and rest during every day trekking.
When (I won’t use word if) I return again to Nepal I will definitely call the company to organise my next trek. – Teo O
Nov 2018 This was the second time I travelled with Kailash. They offer very good, skillfull and reliable services.I can recommend them to everyone that is to visit Nepal for a trekking.- Venture53977685830
Tsum Valley Trek november 2018 with a Dutch group of 14 members
November 2018 I cooperated for the ninth time with Kailash Himalaya Trek. Now we made a tent trek through the Tsum Valley. An authentic area that is still hardly affected by outsiders. In that area we saw marvellous remote and wild mountain landscapes with high snowy mountain peaks. On our route we visited some old Buddhist monasteries and villages. At the end of the valley we camped near Mu Ghompa monastery at 3700m. We got the idea to go back in time for centuries.
During all these tours Mr. Kitap Tamang was our guide. His calmness, kindness, organizational skills, loyalty and strength are unique. He is a nice and professional guide. He and his assistants take care of us under all circumstances and they guided us very well on high, remote and impressive routes. All our equipment was transported by porters. At all our treks the cook and his kitchen boys prepared very good and tasty meals and give us all services we need. Thanks the efforts of the KHT staff we had very fine and save trekkings in wonderful areas.- Aart L Elst, The Netherlands
Best Trekking CO
Dec 2018 • Did the Khumbu Trek to BC Mt Everes tlast year for the second time with Kailash. This is by far the best Trekking Cie you can choose. Very skilled, very friendly, very professional!
Hope to meet them again this year! – Sid H
Dec 2018 • I booked the Poon hill circuit with Kailash after recommendations from friends. I wasn’t disappointed. They were really flexibile with dates (even when I kept making changes) and communicated quickly and efficiently before I arrived in Nepal. Gopal was my guide and he was brilliant- knowledgeable and also was happy to be flexible with the itinerary if I wanted to walk further some days. He was also very reliable and that’s important to have when you are trekking for a few days and by yourself.I didn’t compare prices to other companies but I felt it was really good value because all food and hot drinks were included (and those hot drinks were needed)!!!Definitely recommend! –Tory C
Group trip to EBC and Gokyo Ri – fantastic for trekking and photography!!
Oct 2018 • We were a group of 30 ‘young’ trekkers that completed withh EBC and Gokyo Ri trek with Kailash Himalaya.
Preparing for the trip was extremely easy, Ramesh from KH was always very quick to answer my questions (and I had quite a few!) and was extremely accommodative with my additional requests being a large group. THANK YOU FOR ORGANISING A FANTASTIC TRIP.
Normally when you trek up to EBC, there is no clean water supply so most people buy plastic bottles. I was reluctant for the group to buy plastic water bottles primarily because it would be expensive and I wanted to avoid plastic waste (all waste has to be carried by porters down the mountain) . KH went out of their way to research the most environmentally friendly method to supply water to the group and found a solution where we could be plastic free! A special thanks for the time and effort that was put into making this happen.
We had strict requirement to to have vegetarian (eggless) food on the mountain which was no problem. All meals were really tasty (restaurant standard food at some teahouses) and given we were a big group rarely did we have to wait for the meals. The timing was immaculate. Typical meals consisted of daal baat, momos, vegetable curry, pickles on the side, extra hot chillies for those who dare etc . In fact, I had brought loads of snacks with me but I didn’t touch any of these as we were so well fed!!
Even though we were surrounded by incredible scenery, the trip was extra special because of the people. We were fortunate to be in a very positive energetic group but that was seconded by our friendly mountain guides and sherpas.
A big shout out to BHOLA and BECK our mountain guides and all our sherpas helping guides for making the experience so enjoyable. They were constantly laughing and making jokes with the group but always remained professional. It was quick to ascertain the wealth of experience Bhola and Beck had between them. You’ll find the mountain guides and sherpas will quickly go from being ‘just guides’ to your ‘mountain family’.
After EBC, our group split into 2 with some carrying on to Gokyo Ri and the others descending back to Lukla as planned . If you do have enough annual leave, I definitely recommend the GOKYO RI extension via the CHOLA PASS . See the photos for the stunning views!!!
I don’t have any qualms about the trekking company, they are trustworthy and will go to EVERY EFFORT to provide the BEST experience possible .
There are several trekking companies out there that might offer rates which are a few $ less, but it’s really not worth taking the shortcuts. Choose a trekking company you know you can rely on and consistently provides excellent service. You might still reach EBC but it will be evident in the quality of your accommodation/ meals/ ability to get onto a flight . – Sita Shah
Oct 2018 • Superb staff. Highly recommended to anyone.Initially had a large group of 30 doing the expedition, which I would imagine to be logistically exceptionally hard – dietary requirements, injuries, mixed paces etc.The porters and guides were exemplary throughout, going the extra distance for our safety, comfort and enjoyment.Regardless of the workload, which was clearly vast – each and every member never lost their smile.

Sep 2018 • I have been fortunate to have travelled to Nepal many times (7). Each time it just gets better. Kailash Himalaya has been the company I always use and both Kitap & Sarbajit have been my guides over the years. This time my friends and I trekked in Mustang which was marvellous and so different to the Annapurna, Langtang and Everest treks. While Kailash Himalay did a tremendous job again I was a tad disappointed by the fact the government is turning most of the main trekking path into a road. –Fred A
” We visited Nepal for a quick 3-day trekking experience and wanted something a bit different but not too strenuous. Coming from the Middle East (direct flight from Muscat) and keen hill-walkers, we were happy to walk and camp in January and relished the adventure it offered. We completed a trek in the Kathmandu valley (Nagakot, Chisapani, Shivapuri) and loved every minute of it, passing through beautiful villages and enjoying the mountain scenery in the distance. All the equipment was provided (including winter sleeping bags) and we were very well looked after by our guide Gopal (?), team of porters and cook throughout the trek; the food was delicious each meal and gave us a real sampling of Nepali cuisine – amazing what can be rustled up with two cast iron hobs and a couple of pans. They could not have been more attentive. We liked our experience it so much we are considering bringing our children (aged 9 and 7) back to explore some more of the region. Thank you team Kailash Himalaya!”
