Dear friends at Raj Bala Treks and Expedition,

Thank you for making our dream come true. The six of us are so happy to have worked with your team. We are so pleased with your service. Everything works like a chime. All the arrangements are excellent. We are very proud with our guides and porters especially when we saw other groups' guides and porters. It seems that our team members are younger, stronger and happier. I can never forget the night at Tadapani that we sat along the dining table singing, dancing and drumming. In addition to see the beautiful mountains, forests, we also saw the beauty in the Nepalese. For all of us, this is a lifetime experience. There are so many places to hike and see in Nepal . Some of us are saying that we will come back. I look forward to working with your team again. Dhanyabad and Feribhetaula. (Sorry, if the spelling is incorrect.)

"It was an incredible experience and sceneray at Annapurna Circuit Trek was out of this world"

March 2009

Lata

Just a quick email to say thank you for organizing the trek. It was an incredible experience and the scenery was out of this world, particularly around Manang and along the Thorung La Pass.

Our guide was fantastic, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and willing to do everything necessary to make the trek a success. We really enjoyed the two weeks I spent in Nepal.

I was extremely grateful that you were so flexible about cutting the trek short by 2 days. We managed to cover the circuit quicker than expected. Also, a number of other trekkers who we met along the route were doing the same and spending a couple of days in Pokhara relaxing so I decided to join them.

Thanks also for organizing the extra night etc. at the Kathmandu Hotel.

Thanks again.

" Our 21 days trek of the circuit was awesome"

April 2009


Our 21 days trek of the circuit was awesome. Our guide PHURBA SHERPA was a huge factor to the great time + memorable experience we had. At all time he was professional, knowledgeable, strong + sensitive to our needs - everything you want in a guide. He intimately knew the mountains + the village people. His mountaineering background + stories were interesting too, at the end of the trek he left as our friend. We can't recommend him enough.

The package put together by Raj Bala Treks and Expedition was very professional, reasonable + of high quality. Our accommodation, food etc, we were very pleased with. Overall we thought that this longer trek was a great way to see some of Nepal.

My thoughts on the company:


May 2009

* Very organized - they had a variety of treks available and I'm able to put together for me in a day.
* Knowledgeable - When I asked about trekking and the difficulties of each trial they were able to answer my question to my satisfaction. Other companies were answer with vague replies or " no problem "
* Friendly - I spoke with the Managing Director, Lata, who was very reassuring about the safety of trekking alone with her company's guide. She understood and spoke English very well and listened to my concerns.


My thoughts about my guide.
* Iswar - wonderful !
* Easy to get alone with
* Very Helpful
* Keen about Trekking
* Gentle natured
* Sociable
* Popular with the people who live along the trial
* Accommodating
* Able to problem - solve
* Good boundaries - which is very important as a female traveling alone !
* Likes to laugh


I had a great time ! thank you

Hello potential trekkers,


The purpose of this note is to recommend (highly) the services of Raj Bal Treks and Expedition (P.) Ltd. My new wife and I went on an almost month-long trek to Kanchenjunga base camps November 2009. Our lead sirdar/sherpa was Ang Kaji Sherpa, and our head cook was Ram Ghale. It was fabulous….I have literally hundreds of pictures including wild blue mountain goats at Pang Pema, the incredibly old Gompa at Ghunsa, and numerous faces of Nepali villagers we met along the way. The food was tasty and healthy, we never got sick once along the way and were given plenty of water for drinking and washing. Despite a premature and unexpected snowstorm at Sele La Kaji Sherpa led us the way back down to Tseram. Everything was expertly provided for us. They are environmentally conscious. There are no hidden cost along the way (we could have gotten along fine without bringing any money if we did not really need those cokes or beers on the way back). I wish I knew what else to say to convince you. Kanchenjunga is a difficult camping trek and we encountered a number of trekkers along the way who had various problems with their staff or their food. Everybody on our staff (22 including temporary porters) was considerate and great and I'd like to think we've made a couple of real friends .I can't say enough about these guys.


Sincerely,
Jamie Fox San Franscisco, USA

"My journey throughout Nepal would not have been the same if I had decided not use Raj Bala Treks and Expedition" – Claire Doughty

10th June 2008

I engaged Raj Bala Treks and Expedition to organize my Everest Base Camp trek, white water rafting and safari through Chitwan National Park from a remote location in India whilst leading an adventure expedition. I arrived at Kathmandu airport to be greeted with garlands and driver form this point I knew I was with an organization that I could trust. The various guides and porters throughout my three week adventure were knowledgeable and friendly but most of all organized. My journey throughout Nepal would not have been the same if I had decided not use Ace the Himalaya as it was seamless and I would recommend anyone who is considering an adventure in Nepal to look no further for an unforgettable experience.

All the best !

"Thanks again for such an amazing experience that I will cherish forever" - Craig Lutwyler

Dear friends,

I want to thank you again for organizing such an incredible trip. You and the entire Raj Bala Treks and Expedition team were professional, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable. Everybody did everything in their powers to make the EBC trek an unforgettable experience. All the arrangements were well organized from the punctual airport meet and greet, to the accommodations at the friendly guesthouse and hotels.

Not a day has gone by since my return that I wish I was still trekking through the picturesque Himalaya Mountains. Overall the trip well exceeded my expectations and I cannot wait to do another trek with Ace the Himalaya. Thanks again for such an amazing experience that I will cherish forever.

See You Soon,

"Everest Island Peak Trek / Climb"

14th Sept- 4th Oct, 2008

"The meeting and handling and services of the supporting staff were very good. We had a very friendly and well-organized trek guide (Ang Dawa) who looked after us and the porters well. The camping services were very good but a lighter table would be good for the porters. Phurba was an excellent and friendly kitchen assistant and porter. The transportation was very good. Our itinerary was suitably flexible."

"The meeting and handling was excellent. The support team showed great flexibility while improvising the itinerary. Hotel Dwarikas was excellent (service, food and accommodation) while Shangri-La was good (the food was not as varied as Dwarikas).

We find it very important that our traveling contributes to the preservation of Nepal’s fragile and beautiful nature. We encourage Raj Bala Treks and Expedition to start working with different tea-houses / lodges and hotels on sustainability initiatives- like waste recycling, solar heating etc. Many tourists would be willing to pay more to be sure that accommodation and transport do not harm the environment or add to global warming."

"I would like to applaud your professionalism in looking after us so well. With 4 children aged 7-12, your staff were always willing to help and their enthusiasm was boundless" - MARK LAWSON

29th May 2007

Hi Prem!

Toby and I would like to thank you for looking after us so well on the ABC trip in April. For me having been previously in October 99, I was really please to see such a vast difference in the spring. The snow and flora combined with the amphitheatre that is the sanctuary was mind blowing.

I really would like to applaud your professionalism in looking after us so well. With 4 children aged 7-12, your staff were always willing to help and their enthusiasm was boundless.

I am will definitely choose Raj Bala Treks and Expedition when next I travel back to Nepal. Toby and I are off to the Alps in August to traverse the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt and then attempt Mont Blanc. I only hope our guides are as enthusiastic as the staff at Raj Bala Treks and Expedition.

"We strongly recommend Lata and her agency Raj Bala Treks and Expedition for travelers, who want to go to Nepal Himalayas"

March 2007

We are a group of eight friends traveling together for 5 years. We trekked already in the Alps, Carpathians, Pamirs and Caucasus mountains. This Mardi Himal trek was among the best of our trek regarding organization, very friendly staff, and good food.

We strongly recommend Lata and her agency for travelers, who want to go to Nepal Himalayas.

With this agency we did the Langtang trek and a part of the Helambu area trek. We had a guide and porter ,both very fine people.


The Langtang trek is very nice and had some very spectacular sight. ……………

Rajeev (the guide) and Kumar (the porter) took very good care of us. Not only during the trek but also afterwards.

This agency also helps you with arranging things outside scoop of the trekking. We are very satisfied with the guide service and can highly recommend this agency. If we ever comeback to Nepal we surely arrange the trekking here again at Raj Bala Treks and Expedition.

"We found ACE team to be extremely flexible in all aspects." - Jim Bailey

8th November 2005

We are a party of three who trekked through the Everest region in November 2005. We contacted Lata (Raj Bala Treks and Expedition leader) via email after reading internet recommendations and we found her to be a wealth of information on everything we needed to know to organize our trip. Once we booked Lata advised on clothing required and costs, as well as organizing all our internal flights and park entry fees. We found Lata and her team at Raj Bala Treks and Expedition team to be extremely flexible in all aspects.

On arriving in Nepal (our 1st visit) Lata met us at the airport and took us to our hotel. He couldn’t have done more for us throughout our entire stay. From our Lodges to meals and the Porters from his team, it was all organized with a minimum of fuss. We all got to know all of them pretty well over the two weeks and found them to be great company with an excellent sense of humor. Their whole team has a good knowledge of the mountains as well as the pitfalls associated with altitude. We all found his advice on fluid intake and meals invaluable. He was a mine of information on not only the Himalaya but Nepali culture. Our whole trip went off without any problems and we all achieved our goal of climbing to the top of Kala Phattar and taking in the breathtaking views of Everest as well as many other 6,7,8000m peaks all around us.

There’s no doubt that friends at Raj Bala Treks and Expedition team greatly added to our trip and we most certainly would not have made our goal without them. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone thinking of trekking in Nepal.

Dear friends,

I feel compelled to write a short note on two accounts: Firstly we would like to say thank you for the professional manner in which you organized our trek. In the midst of so many companies demanding for our attention with financial concerns seemingly paramount, it was refreshing to walk into your office and receive sound, friendly advice without the hard sell !

Secondly we wish to convey our thanks to our excellent guide. Having initially been in two minds as to whether a guide would be necessary for our relatively short walk, with retrospect we are extremely glad that you convinced us. My guide was of a great patience, honesty and integrity when I became sick on the second day his kindness and genuine concerns definitely inspired me to keep going. He went out of his way to ensure that we were comfortable, warm and well fed at all times and his knowledge of the route was second to none.

We hope to book with you again in the future and have already recommended you without hesitation to our friends.

"It was a fantastic experience and one we will never forget"

15th September, 2005

We did 10-day trek around the Annapurna Sanctuary.

It was a fantastic experience and one we will never forget. We found the trek good value of money and through our guide and porters, learnt a lot about Nepali culture as well as some of the language.

Our guide and porters were great fun and a very experienced trekking crew. They really made our trip a special one and we'll definitely be keeping in touch.

We found the trek really flexible, we could go at our own place and spend longer in a particular place as we wanted to.

We'd highly recommend booking a trek through Raj Bala Treks and Expedition.

From started to finish we had a fantastic time in Nepal.

July 2005

From started to finish we had a fantastic time: The service all around was excellent. It was our first time in Nepal but the help we were given organizing the trip was friendly and without pressure; thanks Mohan !Everything was well run on the trek and we are both a little in awe of both Ram's knowledge and energy and Kumar's ability to carry our bags up mountains we found challenging ! A special thanks to everyone at Raj Bala Treks and Expedition for creating such a memorable experience – It truly was fantastic. The views were breathtaking, the lodges comfortable and the food surprisingly varied and tasty.

Best wishes for all your future treks.
