Amazing 10 days trekking to Langtang Valley national park and Gosaikunda Lake
Thank you very much Rajendra Thapa and Nepal Gateway Trekking for our amazing 10 days trekking to Langtang Valley national park and Gosaikunda Lake. The trek was very well organized and Rajendra was a very good guide, welcoming, and friendly, competent, professional and flexible. We enjoyed trekking from the sub tropical vegetation area to glacier and holy lakes, beautiful wilderness scenery characterized by the rhododendron forest slowly dissolve into the expansive alpine grassland meadows where yaks and naks live. We learnt about local culture, observed flora and fauna, ate local organic food Daal bhaat, buckwheat pancakes... stayed in lodges, had lots of laughs, learnt Nepalese words and played all together cards in the evenings with Shital and Dipak our great porters, with a warm cup of tea: Ita, Pan, Chili, sulot Oucale bistarai, oucare tchito, Dere mito tchat, titsa, tika...and many more!
Thanks Raj again for giving us the unique opportunity to meet your friendly and welcoming family during Dashain festival time and experience life in countryside. We hope to come back again for another great time together! All the best.
Adventurous alternative trekking route with a reliable and attentive support crew
Namaste and best return greetings from Wayne in Tasmania.
We agreed that the service you and your team provided during our long range remote area trek in Dolpo District, north-west Nepal was exceptionally good in all regards. This trek was obviously difficult for you to organise because of the airstrip closure at Juphal, meaning a complete replanning and re-organisation of our routes and schedules was needed.
Despite these difficulties causing much extra work, you still provided us with an impressively attractive and adventurous alternative trekking route with a reliable and attentive support crew, who supplied three wholesome healthy meals each day and provided daily campsite duties effectively and courteously.
I personally found your organizational skills and attention to client needs were extremely considerate, effective and commendable. Your successful treatment of my respiratory illness at Phoksumdo Lake; the numerous and complex mobile phone calls at the trip’s end, which enabled our stranded group to be safely extracted from our weatherbound remote airstrip by helicopter in time to catch international flights, demonstrated beyond doubt your ability as a first class trekking guide.
Because of your unsurpassed devotion and duty to our Tasmanian group of trekkers in extremely difficult circumstances, I have no hesitation in recommending you and your guiding company to all prospective clients, who may enquire of your future services in Nepal.
Yours very gratefully,
I made a wonderful trekking tour to Everest base camp
In october 2012 I made a wonderful trekking tour to Mount Everest base camp. Our tour guide was Raj. He showed us with enthusiasm the gigantic and fantastic world of the highest mountains of Himalaya. The tour was perfect organized and Raj took care that everyone of our group could reach the own personal aim. With great expert knowledge he introduced us into the mysteries of nature and variety cultures of his country. From Raj I learned a lot how the different ethnic groups in Nepal live together in a respectful and peaceful way. And he didn't teach it only but he also practiced it. For this experience I am very thankful. So I hope I can continue my excursions in Nepal in future... of course with Raj my tour guide.Wolfgang Windschmitt
I return to do the Trek again with my son in the future
“I had Raj as a tour guide for a 2012 trek to Mt Everest Base
Camp. Feeling quite anxious about the trek, mainly because of my fitness,
Raj immediately put me at ease. He has a very unassuming manner, a great
sense of humors and focuses on ensuring people have a fun experience and reach
Base Camp without rushing. Something that everyone in our group noticed
was that of all the tour guides on the mountain, Raj was the one that was
greeted most warmly at every stop by the locals. We all felt that having him
as a guide got us the best rooms, best food and those little extras that make
the difference e.g. like spare blankets and heaters! I would have
absolutely no hesitation in recommending Raj and when I return to do the trek
again with my son in the future, will only use him.”

Raj was caring and well organized. He showed anything..
2009 I took part in a trip to Everest Base Camp.
like to say how much I enjoyed the adventure. It was the best trip ever for me
and I cannot wait to visit Himalaya again.
have to say that not only fantastic views, atmosphere and my love for maintain
are the reason for my precious, happy memories. People there are extremely
nice, our potters and Sherpa were very, very helpful, our guide, Raj was caring
and well organized. He showed anything but professionalism and how well he
knows his job in the mountains. I could not believe how precise he was in
estimating times, organizing meals, making sure we get clean water, etc. He was
full of knowledge about places and traditions. Open to answer so many of our
questions. And when people start getting sick he was making well informed
decisions basing on his experiences and human resources he had. Even in that
complicated situation he still made sure I arrived to the Base Camp. J
