Tamang Heritage Trek and Chitwan Jungle Safari
We are just back from the most incredible holiday ever. We completed the Tamang Heritage Trail which was 6 days of trekking in the more remote areas of Nepal. We then did the Chitwan Jungle Safari which was fantastic.
Outfitter Nepal answered all of our questions promptly, prior to our trip. Given this was our first time to Nepal and trekking, we had a few questions to ask. Arjun and Raj were great in helping us out with organizing a personalized trek for us. We loved how we could choose our own starting date and we also chose a private jeep for our transfers which we are glad we did when we saw the buses in Nepal. Our driver, Raju, was incredible.
We felt safe, cared for, he drove so well and avoided so many bumps in the roads! He was always on time and with a warm smile to greet us. His English is good so we had great chats on our journeys and he shared lots of his knowledge which helped us gain an insight into life in Nepal. He'd be a great guide or porter too. He is Nepal's number 1 driver and I strongly recommend you ask for him when you are there.
Hom was our wonderful guide - full of knowledge, so patient, caring and thoughtful! He went above and beyond to make sure we were well looked after. We were very fortunate to have Hom as our guide and to share our trek with him. I still don't know how he knew where to go when sometimes I couldn't even see a path! Mama was our porter and he is incredible. So strong, kind, energetic and a fantastic cook! He was in the guesthouse well before us and getting lunch or dinner ready. Such a sweet man. What a team we had with us - so grateful - thank you.
We did the Everest Flight which was incredible. We had the day tour of Kathmandu which was so interesting and our guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt so much about Nepal that we were blown away. We found the Tamang trek just stunning. The vistas were breathtaking, some parts quite hard and challenging, food incredibly good and organic, accommodation was basic but comfortable. I was not expecting to eat so well! Dec/Jan was quite cold and not very busy so it was nice to have the trails mainly to ourselves, the locals and the animals.
Chitwan Jungle was fantastic. We chose the 4 star option and were pleasantly surprised with the resort. We enjoyed the walking safari, local village tour, saw a lot of crocodiles, elephants, birds and even a rhinoceros! More touristy than where we had been in Tamang but still very enjoyable. We were so impressed with Outfitters Nepal and highly recommend this company.
We couldn't fault them and they run a very professional, yet personal, business. We borrowed the sleeping bag and trekking jacket from them which saved us buying them and they sure kept us warm up in the mountains. A lovely touch is Outfitter Nepal do a farewell dinner. How nice is that!!! It was so nice to have Raju, our driver, come to the dinner with Raj.
We have made friends for life and give Outfitter Nepal and outstanding award! If you are looking at booking and not sure who to go with, choose Outfitters Nepal.
You can't go wrong and will have the trip of a lifetime.
Amazing EBC Trek in Nepal
I had a 12 day trek to Everest Base Camp which included Kalapather for great views of Everest. The trip was organised so well I could not of asked for anymore. My guide on the trek was Pralad Dharel who took care of me every step of the way, and it was his instructions which got me there.
An absolutely amazing experience with incredible people who are a credit to the company. I would completely recommend Outfitter Nepal as the company to get you to Everest Base Camp Trek. I will be returning for a different trek in the future and will definitely book with these guys... 10 out of 10.
I have added some photos to back up what I’m writing, you won’t be disappointed.
Wonderful tour in Nepal
Wow, that about describes this tour. Wonderful tour of many parts of beautiful Nepal. Everything was arranged and facilitated wonderfully. Our hotels were great, our driver supurb with a near new mini bus and we were all very confident in his ability to negotiate the roads and other drivers. Most of all we all agreed our guide, Birodh, was fantastic.
He managed to keep us on schedule whilst not pushing and let us stop when we needed to. His knowledge of the locations, geography, the people and even the botanical information was amazing, even stopping to point out the local wildflowers, their names, their uses in herbal medicine and in local culture was superb.
His calm nature and willingness to make sure everyone was happy and well along with his moto of "good people, with good thoughts" was inspirational. Well done Birodh and keep up the good work, you're a real asset to the tour company. As one of the other tour members said " you were our best guide ever" and that's not bad coming from us well seasoned and travelled oldies.
Wondererful memorable tour, thanks to everyone involved.
Amazing Experience - Anapurna Base camp Trek !
I did the Annapurna base camp trek and I'm very thankful that I did this with Outfitter Nepal! First of all Raj and Arjun. Communication from the beginning of the booking until the end of the Trek was brilliant. They did everything to make you feel comfortable all the time.
Especially I want to thank my Guide and Porter Kiran Basnet who did an incredible job. Although he is a young Guide I felt safe and secure with him because of taking care of me through the whole trek. He is not only a professional in being a guide also in being a teacher of the Nepalese culture and landscape. Very openminded!
It was an amazing experience and I have already booked the next trek for 2020 - certainly with Outfitter and Kiran.
Fantastic Best of Nepal tour
My sister and I recently booked a 10-day Spirit of Nepal trip. This was run by Outfitters Nepal, a local tour company. Can’t speak highly enough of this company! Raj who briefed us on arrival and took us all to dinner at the end of our trip and made sure we all got to the airport.
Birodh our fantastic guide who spoke excellent English, had a great sense of humour whilst maintaining professionalism at all times and looked out for us throughout the tour, and our driver (also Raj) who navigated us safely through crazy traffic to Pokhara, Chitwan, and all around Kathmandu.
Great experience all round
We went on the Nepal tour with Outfitter Nepal and everything throughout the tour was satisfactory. The hotels, guesthouses, food and a bunch of other stuff.
The communication before the tour was also really good. Arjun answered all our questions within 24 hours, which we really appreciated. If I am ever back to Nepal, these are the guys I'll definitely talk to.
Nepal Bhutan Tour -Highly Recommended
We booked a 12 Days Magic of Nepal and Bhutan and had a wonderful experience from start to finish. Both our guides in Kathmandu and Bhutan were professional and knowledgeable in every way. The drivers were experienced and helpful.
The accommodation in Nepal was adequate but we could upgrade to 4-star for a bit more luxury! A 3-star hotel in Bhutan, well, was very comfortable. Overall, these hotel services were excellent, the staffs were very warm and welcoming and were always happy to please the guests.
Outfitter Nepal is highly recommended. They responded quickly to our requests and were very flexible to our needs.
They prepared to chang the tour itinerary to meet our preferences. The company director, Raj, was charismatic and friendly and it was a delightful surprise when he invited us for a farewell dinner at the completion of the tour.
Everest High pass trek
This Everest high pass trek was my first trek ever. I wanted a company I could trust to get me through all the logistics of such an ambitious trip and that is exactly what I got from Outfitter Nepal.
From airport pickup to dealing with unexpected events during 18 days of trekking, they were very dependable and always took care of everything.
I highly recommend them.
Ghorepani Trek and Chitwan Safari
I had not trekked before. While having walked extensively, I found after 2 days that I was quite weak and would have had difficulty continuing. The option of travelling by horse (pony in this case ) arose and with the help of our guide, Dinesh and porter Bikram, hired the pony and owner for a 2 days.
Bikram as a porter and carer was absolutely superb as was everyone around. He carried my luggage and daypack along with other luggage, throughout the trip, checking continually to ensure that I was alright. Dinesh cared for the group as a whole and is equally superb.
As a group we agreed and strongly suggested that we let you know that we were extremely impressed with the manner, gentleness, anticipation and friendliness of your staff that attended to us. No problem was insurmountable and all was achieved with smoothness and I have to say - love.
Our immediate guide was:
Dinesh - guide.
I have no hesitancy in recommending your travel company as a reflection of my own experience.
Family tour in Nepal
In January 2013, we have made family 9-day trip across Nepal with company Outfitter Nepal. Have visited Bangkok, Pokhara, Chitwan and once more Bangkok.
Unfortunately on a state of our health we could not order foot tracks, but in the rest - all was perfect. Very good organization, convenient hotels, good support, skilled guides.
And all it at rather modest price. Organizers of the company - the young (rather) men who have passed a path from simple porters to masters of the prospering tourist company especially were pleasant to us.
They very well perceive that is necessary for the tourist and provide it.
Very much hope we can still though time to organize with their help another trip across Nepal.
