Everest Three Passes trekking

The Three Passes trekking is the ultimate trekking experience which is around 3 weeks in Everest region.

The trekking tour was guided through the Himalayan Everest Region between the 11th & 27th November, 2015.  The group comprising six men and one women, all experienced bush walkers and all residents of northern Tasmania including some who had previously enjoyed adventuring with Nepal Gateway Trekking. 
 
The prearranged somewhat circular route from a base point at Namche Bazar, culminated at Everest Base Camp, returning via Chola Pass, Gokyo, Renjo La Pass, descending through Lumden and Thame to Namche Bazar and thence back down to Lukla on the final day of the walking segment of the journey. 
 
At each overnight village stop, the booked lodging accommodation varied from extremely comfortable at lower levels to basic backpacker style facilities at higher altitudes where infrastructure and fittings are sparse and goods transport is very difficult. 
 
The food was generally of vegetarian nature with ample well prepared and cooked portions and a good variety to select from.  Boiled water was usually only available at meal times with the provision of hot water for washing purposes limited in some places, while cold water for drinking was always readily available but needed pre-consumption treatment. 
 
Weather on the November 2015 excursion was unusually warm, dry and fine with track conditions at most levels being very dusty which may have contributed to a mild respiratory infections being contracted by some group members.  This and associated health problems necessitated a descent from near 5,000 to 3,600 metres by two affected members at one stage for recuperative and redirection purposes. 
 
The successful manner of conduct of this exercise highlighted the professional capabilities of Nepal Gateway Trekking.  The manager allocating in a timely and harmonious fashion another of his guides and a porter to assist us through the next five days of descent and reascent via the breathtakingly beautiful upper Dudhkoshi River valley to reunite with the rest of the group at Gokyo village after their more demanding Chola Pass traverse. 
 
This unplanned change of events caused no disruption to the original itinerary for the majority of the trekking group whilst providing effective time on a scenery spectacular reconnection route for the two off colour companions. 
 
The manager and principal guide of Nepal Gateway Trekking is Rajendera Thapa, fondly referred to as “Raj” by those of us who have previously enjoyed and admired the impressive quality of service of his Nepalese family business.  Raj is multilingual, his command of spoken English is quite good and his communication by email is excellent as are his organization skills, which have been well demonstrated on all trekking and tour expeditions our group members have previously taken with him across different areas of Nepal. 
 
The privilege of offering as much as we possibly could in the way of work and remuneration and other direct assistance to individual Nepalese citizens was just as enjoyable as the exhilarating feeling they gave us when walking among the world’s greatest mountains, being awed and humbled by their majestic grandeur and being inspiringly amazed by the tenacious hardness yet kindly welcoming attitude of the people of this remarkable country.

Manaslu Circuit Trekking experience

Manaslu Circuit Trekking experience

From 5th to 20th April our group trekked the Manaslu Circuit.   The trek was organized by Rajendra Thapa (Raj) of Nepal Gateway Trekking.   Ramchandra  Godar  (Ram) was our guide, with assistant guide Denesh  and porters Biru, Vishnu, Naran (senior), Naran (junior), Sharan, and Jaya .
Our group of 11 departed from Arughat  (570 m)  and continued  along the road to Soti Khola in  the Budhi Gandaki  Valley.  Overnight stops at Lapabesi, Machhakhola , Jagat, Philim and Deng  (1800 m.) . One of our group had a serious throat and lung infection and was unable to walk back, so the following morning he was evacuated by helicopter. The evacuation was efficiently organized by phone between Ram, and in Kathmandu, by Raj.  After a day or two in hospital the evacuee recovered.
The group of now ten trekked to overnight at Ghap and then through lovely forests of rhododendron in flower, oak and blue pine, and observed small groups of Himalayan tahr and pairs of lammergeir  (large vultures mistaken as eagles).  Then to Lho for the first uninterrupted view of Manaslu (8,163 m.).  At Samagaon (3,530 m) we were lucky to attend a Tibetan festival with horse racing, archery, tug  o’ war, and bareback horse racing.    After a side trip to partly frozen Birendra Lake, we overnighted at Samdo (3,860 m).    During the night was heavy snowfall.  The following morning, Samdo and the entire landscape was heavily covered with snow creating a beautiful wonderland.
During the trek to the dismal Larkya Phedi camp (4460m), we observed small herds of bharal (blue sheep), alpine marmots and yellow billed choughs.  Next morning at 5 am we started the challenging trek to  Larkya La (5103 m).  Strong head winds and plummeting wind chill temperatures and a brewing storm made it imperative to get over the pass as quickly as possible.  
Once over the pass it was an easy downhill trek to Bhulbhule back down to (790 m) and the grand finale of Nepalese dancing and Nepalese beer.
Some lodges are not of a high standard, but as the trek becomes more popular hopefully standards and hygiene will improve.    Of special mention is the appalling standard of the eating area and disgusting toilets at Larkya Phedi Rest House and camp.
Everyone on the trek enjoyed themselves and appreciated the thoughtfulness and friendliness of our guide Ram and the porter crew.  We all considered this challenging and arduous trek as a success.

Enjoying at old pine tree in Langtang  region trekking

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.

Dolpo Trekking in Nepal

Adventurous alternative trekking route with a reliable and attentive support crew

Dear Raj,

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,
Wayne Binns.
