Nepal Trekking Routes


This was my husband’s and my first time hiking in Nepal. We have done several multi-day hikes before but none at this altitude. Himalayan Masters quickly became our first choice because of the reviews and Sandip’s excellent customer service. He was always very responsive and we could tell he was just a fun and nice guy. We chose the Manaslu circuit trek because it sounded quieter than the others and less on the road, and we were really happy with the hikes.

Our group consisted of three other people, Raj our guide, and Pitanbar our porter. Raj was a really great guide and he knew how to interact with everyone and have a lot of fun. The pit was also very kind and hard-working. Our group came upon some unfortunate weather later in the trek and it was always unsure whether we would actually be able to make the Larke pass due to storms. Raj was pretty open with us regarding the weather and being flexible with staying in certain places and seeing how things go.

On the day that we planned to complete the pass a storm hit. All of the groups that were at the beginning camp (Dharamsala) ended up completing the pass despite the weather which risked everyone’s safety. Multiple guides and porters afterwards stated that it was the worst weather they had ever seen in their lives. It was shocking to me that every single group chose to take the risk of crossing despite the terrible weather. We are thankful that everyone is safe now and that Himalayan Masters were open to listening to our concerns and implementing changes. Sandip agreed that having GPS tracking for each guide will need to be the norm in order to ensure the safety of everyone and he promised to implement the changes by next year. After having this serious discussion with Himalayan Masters I would feel confident booking a tour with them again. They were very respectful and good listeners, and they helped to make sure that this experience would not negatively impact our trip, and not happen again.

A great adventure and learning experience on the Manaslu CircuitUSA 🇺🇸
Our guides (Raj and Petombo) and porters (Arun, Beer and Nobo) were incredible and we could not have done the trip without them! The team were highly experienced and went above and beyond to ensure that our group of 6 from Australia were well taken care of. We had the best time because of them – highly recommend it!
Amazing trekking experience – highly recommendAustralia 🇦🇺
Himalayan Masters provided incredible services to guide and plan our trek in the Annapurna circuit. The team was incredibly organised and thoughtful, defining the experience as exceptional from the first day. The guides and porters spoke great English and supported us immensely throughout the challenging trek. A friend and I fell sick during the trek, and the whole team went above and beyond to not only satisfy any medical needs required but acted as a second family (quite needed in a foreign remote land thousands of kilometres away from home). Overall, I would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to do a trek in Nepal, the team is awesome and accommodates your itinerary to suit your travel plans. Thank you, Sandip and Raj!
Awesome company to do your Nepal trek!Australia 🇦🇺

5 friends and I just completed the Annapurna circuit guided by the Himalayan masters team who essentially managed every part of our trip from start to finish. Before arriving in Nepal, Sandip had organised our entire itinerary and provided us with all the items we needed to prepare for the trip. Additionally, the team was very responsive to any questions we had in the lead up to the trip. Once we arrived, and throughout the course of the trek, the HM team were very organised and supportive. Their ability to successfully manage the itinerary and navigate any unexpected surprises (inevitable when travelling in Nepal) highlighted their expertise and experience. On top of this, they were incredibly lovely, warm and kind people. Definitely recommend!

Amazing trip with the Himalayan Masters teamAustralia 🇦🇺
Trekking with Himalayan Masters was an incredible trip that will be hard to beat. We did the Annapurna circuit over 10 days and the Himalayan Masters team was encouraging and patient with us making it a very enjoyable experience. For each meal, we were very well taken care of with great service from such a friendly team.
The price for the trip was very fair considering the amount of effort they put into catering to any of our needs. They went way above and beyond my expectations. When I come trekking again in Nepal I will definitely be going through Himalayan Masters again.
Best experience!Australia 🇦🇺

I couldn’t speak more highly of the Himalayan Masters team over the time of our Annapurna Circuit trek. They are there for you from the very minute you arrive at the airport to the moment you are dropped off. Everything was organised so well prior and during the trip, and any troubleshooting was promptly addressed. The team were so caring and reassuring as a lot of the group had not done a trek like this before, and we appreciated all the laughs, knowledge and guidance we received along the way. Would highly recommend Himalayan Masters if you are looking for the full experience whilst trekking around Nepal, it was such a special trip.

Himalayan Masters created a memorable Annapurna Circuit adventure for our 11-person group and I recommend it if you want to have a customized trekking experience in the Himalayas.
We were impressed by their professionalism from the very first contact with the company

We love and really thankful to our guides (Sandip and Pradip) and the porters (Robi, Elia, Suleiman, Nikesh, Binot, Ram) who really welcome, treated us like their own family, and ensured that our needs and wishes were met every day – and beyond. This allowed us to focus on acclimating, enjoying and appreciating the whole experience.

Thank you Himalayan Masters Team for helping us fulfil a lifelong dream. See you on our next expedition!

Can’t move on from this experienceIndonesia 🇮🇩
We took a trip to thorong la pass with Himalayan Masters. It was simply the best adventure in my life. The staff are very professional and fun! They are very strict with the time schedule and will do anything to make sure that you and ur team will make a successful and safe hiking/trekking trip.
Very good and reliableIndonesia 🇮🇩

Hello, my name is Alexandra from Surabaya, Indonesia. My friends and I, a group of eleven people, have just finished our trek through the Annapurna Circuit arranged by Sandip from Himalayan Masters.

We really enjoyed the entire journey, and I would like to say that Himalayan Masters is truly professional. Sandip himself guided us and he is a hardworking person, providing us with the best service and taking care of each one of us. Plus, he is super funny! Although he can be a bit annoying at times, he’s a crazy man! 😂

Himalayan Masters made us feel not only like clients but also like a team. We truly appreciate everything they did to make this trip successful! Especially when one of my friends had a serious problem with AMS, all the team members, along with the guides and porters, were there to help!

Lastly, I would like to express my gratitude to the Himalayan Masters team: Sandip, the craziest young high-achieving entrepreneur, our lovely guide and founder of HM ✨️; Pradip, the most patient, calm, friendly, and responsive guide 🥰; Suleman, Ram, Roby, Pinot, Elia, and Nikes, our strong, friendly, and professional porters 😎

I am looking forward to travelling and hiking again to other Himalayan Mountains together with Himalayan Masters 😎

Unforgettable Annapurna CircuitIndonesia 🇮🇩

Thank God for this amazing trip, the Himalayan Masters crew were so good, especially Sandy. He leads the trip passionately and makes all of us enjoy it. The leader’s skill & the knowledge he got just completed the puzzle.

And not to forget the team he got, the guide, and the porters. They were so helpful to us along the journey. PK, Ram, Binot, Robi, Niken, Suleman, & Elia were amazing guys.

I hope he can learn from his mistakes & makes an improvement in the future.. good luck to you brother

Unforgettable journeyIndonesia 🇮🇩

A review of our trip to the Everest view hotel with our guide Pasang. Me and my mom really enjoyed our time with him. He was very flexible and kind. He was able to change our schedule to our liking and capabilities. He was a knowledgeable guide and kept us informed and safe throughout our trek. He was a good leader and worked well coordinating our porter too. He even carried our stuff towards the end when the days got long and our legs were tired.
My favourite part of his guide was that he was relatable and he was down to earth. I would really recommend him for other tours. He is a really good addition to Himalayan masters

My name is Julia Wijaya from Indonesia, I went to Annapurna Circuit and 1D city tour (Bhaktapur and Kathmandu) on May 12 – 22 May 2023 with Sandip and Pradip as a guide and 6 porters (Robi, Elia, Suleman, Nikesh, Binot, Ram) so AMAZING I feel so blessed and grateful to have them. They always support & taking care of me in every detail and give me positive vibes. Especially when one of our members almost die because of altitude sickness, Sandip and all of the porters work so hard to take him down even though I know they are so tired but still put smiles on and good vibes.
The view of Annapurna is amazing especially when we take the upper road from Upper Pisang to Manang, thank you for letting us have a choice. Finally 9 from 11 people successful reach Thorong La.

About the accommodation is good, clean, comfortable, good food (you can choose anything you want) and very very good service from Pradhip and crew.
for transport, we choose to have a “Private Jeep” from Kathmandu to Chame and Mukhtinah to Pokhara and last day we take a “Tourist Bus” from Pokhara to Kathmandu.

This experience was worth the cost !!
I highly recommend Himalayan Masters because He is professional and passionate about the mountain. This trip was incredible 🙂 Thanks to everyone who made possible this unforgettable experience, I can’t make it without you guys!
This is my first time going to Nepal but not my last time 😎.

Incredibile Annapurna Circuit TrekIndonesia 🇮🇩

I recently had the privilege of embarking on a breathtaking hiking expedition in Nepal, and I can confidently say that it was an experience of a lifetime. What made this journey truly extraordinary was the exceptional guidance and expertise provided by our hiking guide, Dipak. His commitment to ensuring our safety, enhancing our understanding of the region, and creating unforgettable memories was truly unparalleled. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
From the moment we met Dipak, it was evident that he had a deep knowledge and passion for the Nepalese Himalayas. His wealth of experience shone through as he expertly navigated the trails, leading our group with confidence and skill. He effortlessly tailored the pace and difficulty of the hikes to accommodate everyone’s abilities, ensuring that each member of our group felt included and challenged in the best possible way.
One aspect that truly impressed me was the commitment to our safety. From carrying essential safety equipment to consistently checking weather conditions, Dipak left no stone unturned. His meticulous attention to detail and unwavering focus on ensuring our well-being gave us peace of mind throughout the entire journey. I truly appreciated his ability to strike a perfect balance between adventure and caution.
Beyond professionalism, Dipak’s genuine enthusiasm for the region and its rich cultural heritage was infectious. His deep respect for the local communities and efforts to engage us in meaningful interactions with the locals added an invaluable layer of authenticity to our experience.
In addition to his expertise and passion, Dipak’s exceptional organisational skills ensured that every logistical aspect of the trip ran smoothly. From arranging the most comfortable accommodations to coordinating meals and transportation, he handled every detail with remarkable efficiency, leaving us with nothing to worry about except immersing ourselves in the stunning beauty that surrounded us.
Finally, I must mention the unforgettable moments of natural splendour our guide helped us discover. Dipak’s intimate knowledge of the best viewpoints and hidden gems allowed us to witness Nepal’s awe-inspiring landscapes in all their glory.
In conclusion, hiking in Nepal with Dipak, and our porters, Sujan and Santos, was an absolute privilege. Their professionalism, expertise, and genuine passion for the region made this adventure an experience I will cherish for a lifetime. If you’re considering a hiking expedition in Nepal and want a guide who will go above and beyond to ensure an unforgettable journey, I wholeheartedly recommend Dipak. Trust me; you won’t be disappointed!
Thank you, Dipak, for sharing your remarkable knowledge, skills, and love for Nepal with us. You truly made our hiking expedition an extraordinary and unforgettable adventure.

An Unforgettable Adventure: Hiking in Nepal with an Exceptional GuideAustralia 🇦🇺

I’ve visited Nepal several times and have to say the trek with Himalayan Masters was the best experience I’ve had with trekking companies in Nepal. Very professional staff, from the organisers to guides to porters. Sandip organised our Manaslu Circuit trek which was such a great experience and really went out of his way to make sure we had a great time in the mountains. Our guide Surje was really helpful and kind, and overall would highly recommend Himalayan Masters to anyone looking for a reliable trekking company for any of the awesome trips throughout the country and beyond- you won’t regret it!

Easily the best adventure company in Nepal!Australia 🇦🇺

Wir haben bei Himalayan Masters aufgrund der guten Bewertungen bei Tripadvisor einen Trek ins Langtang Valley mit der Yala Peak Besteigung angefragt, nachdem wir mit einer vorherigen Organisation nicht zufrieden waren.

Von der ersten Kontaktaufnahme hat alles ausgezeichnet funktioniert und selbst kurzfristige Änderungen der Teilnehmer wurde von Sandip problemlos gemanagt. Auch unvorhergesehene Änderungen des Treks aufgrund des Wetters wurden innerhalb kürzester Zeit nach unseren Wünschen berücksichtigt.

Unser Guide Dipak hat die ganze Zeit eine super Betreuung übernommen und hat die Wanderung mit interessanten Informationen angereichert. Man hat sich die ganze Zeit absolut sicher gefühlt und man konnte die nepalesische Gastfreundschaft immer spüren.

Auch für die Organisationen von etwas sightseeing und einer Food-Tour in KTM standen Sandip und Dipak zur Verfügung- und das alles zu angemessen Preisen.

Ich würde Himalayan Masters bedenkenlos Freunden empfehlen, wenn Sie eine Tour nach Nepal planen!

Top Erfahrung von Anfang bis EndeGermany 🇩🇪🇩🇪

in Nepal mit Himalayan Masters zu buchen. Unser Ziel war der Langtang Trek mit anschließender Besteigung des Ayala Peaks.
Bei dieser Organisation ist das ein Rund-Um-Sorglos Paket. Sandip, der erfahrene Hauptverantwortliche von Himalayan Masters kümmert sich um alle Bedürfnisse seiner Kunden. Alle Planung, von Unterkünften über Autofahrten bis Mittagessen, hat die Organisation sehr zufriedenstellend übernommen.
Für den in jeder Hinsicht beeindruckenden Langtang Trek wurde uns der Guide Dipak zur Verfügung gestellt. Er kennt sich nicht nur auf den Treks super aus und hat Wissen über die Region sondern ist auch ein sehr netter und unkomplizierter Zeitgenosse. Wir haben die Zeit mit Ihm und den ganzen Trek sehr genossen, obwohl wir den Yala Peak aufgrund eines unerwarteten Schneesturms nicht erreichen konnten.
Für den ersten Trek haben wir uns auch dazu entscheiden Träger für den Großteil unserer Sachen zu buchen, die waren auch sehr nett.
Danach haben wir noch unerwartet einige Tage in Kathmandu verbracht, deren Planung (mit Wünschen von uns) auch Himalayan master sehr zufriedenstellend übernommen hat!
Ich kann nur sagen, dass ich mir meine nächste Erfahrung im Himalaya nicht ohne Himalayan Masters vorstellen kann.

In jeder Hinsicht top Organisation mit super Ansprechpartnern/ GuidesGermany

We recently completed the Langtang Valley trek with Himalayan Masters.
Communication before the trip was excellent – we were able to adapt our itinerary as required and Sandip was always quick to respond to any questions.
Transfers were all smooth and arrangements in Kathmandu were faultless,
The trek itself was superb. Rishi, our guide, was excellent – not only was his English perfect, but he was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Rishi was very aware of our needs throughout the trek and always went the extra mile to ensure that everything was perfect.
Namaraj, our porter was also great.
The Langtang Valley was as beautiful as we had hoped, and under Rishi’s guidance, we made it to the peaks we were aiming for.
All in all a wonderful experience and a definite five-star review for Himalayan Masters.
Highly recommended (and ask for Rishi!)

AmazingEngland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

I had a great experience doing the Langtang Valley trek with Himalayan Masters!

Planning and communicating with Sandip, the owner, and his team was very easy and reliable from the beginning to the end and they did a fantastic job in answering all my questions and providing me with support when needed. The trek itself was an incredible experience and I felt safe and well taken care of the entire time.

If you’re looking for a professional, reliable, very knowledgeable and kind-hearted guide, ask for Rishi! He took care of all my needs while making sure that I have the best experience possible.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Himalayan Masters for your Nepal adventure and wish the HM team all the best for the future!

Great Langtang valley trek with Himalayan Masters!Germany

Manaslu Circuit Trip with Himalayan Masters:
For the fall of 2020, we planned a trip to Nepal and weren’t sure whether we should book it through a german agency or with a local one. Needless to say, we are 100% satisfied that we booked the trip through Himalayan Masters. The communication was professional from the very beginning and from the moment we were picked up at Kathmandu airport we were taken care of perfectly.

Nepal is beautiful and especially the Manaslu area. But since travel experiences are not (just) made by the places you visit but also by the people that you meet, here is to our guide Dipak and all the wonderful people we met along the way who have been so welcoming and sincere with us! Without exaggeration, this trip has been the purest experience of our lives. And if the trip is measured in friends rather than miles, we must say this trip was as good as it gets!!

Our guide Dipak left nothing to be desired, shone with perfect local knowledge and took care of us so touchingly at any time that a regular thank you seems way too little. Dipak is not only a guide you can rely on 100% but also extremely empathetic, amiable and was always there when we needed him. We had so much fun together, that only after a few hours the trip almost felt like trekking with a good friend.

Since we are both relatively fit and also coped well with the altitude, Dipak kept suggesting additional excursions and routes into our original planning so that we got to see the most beautiful spots such as the Pungyen Gompa Monastery or even Manaslu Base Camp (highly recommended!). In retrospect, this was an unbeatable advantage compared to one of the big tour providers with large and inhomogeneous groups – we were flexible at all times and could shape the tour according to our wishes.

In this way, a clear recommendation to travel to Nepal with the Himalayan Masters! Many thanks to our guide Dipak, our porter Suren and of course to Sandip for the great organization! Nepal will definitely remain in our memories, but most of all in our hearts!

As good as it gets!Germany

Phenomenal winter Langtang Valley trek with “Sandy” and “Pete”! We are a couple, 48 and 55, from the US. I’m vegetarian. Sandeep, the owner of Himalayan Masters, was highly responsive and professional from our very first contact. My partner had been concerned I wasn’t in shape enough to successfully complete the trek, but Sandy’s mindset coaching, alongside his flexible approach and insistence that I could do it if I just took it slow and gave myself the time I needed. He was so right! One of the hardest things I have done physically, yet I felt strong and solid throughout. Petamba also baked me a birthday cake for my 48th in the mountains. When it came the final day, my partner peeled off and did the more difficult peak with Sandy, and Pete guided me to the more manageable 13,500-foot peak. Pete is a wonderful guide in his own right- patient, careful, and encouraging, and with a safety-first approach.
The Langtang trek is spectacular, and Himalayan Masters made it easy. Can’t recommend them enough- we are already talking about our next trek with them!
