What an amazing experience that was! Surviving the flight into Lukla, then trekking to Everest Base Camp via Kalapatthar; then trekking to Imjatse base camp and attempting the summit from high camp, and trekking back to Luka for my flight back to Kathmandu. The weather was on my side at almost every stage and summit day on Island peak was particularly beautiful. I also didn’t expect such a full-on mountaineering experience with my fantastic guide Nawang. But because I climbed in June, the fixed ropes and ladder had already been removed, leaving us both to belay each other across the crevasses and to wade through waist deep snow. Absolutely amazing!

So, thank you for such a wonderful and authentic experience. Thanks also to my guide Nawang and to my two porters who all seem to posses superhuman powers! And not forgetting your wonderfully kind and hospitable family whom invited me in and gave me such a warm Nepali welcome!

Many many thanks !

Namaste, We will like to extend our warm greetings and million thanks for being such a wonderful person Mr. Min Thapa, your cooperation and your warmth help made our trip to Everest Base Camp extremely pleasant one.

The porter Mr. JB was extremely courteous and he does things from his heart even though he speaks minimal English. He is really a definition of the truthful Nepali which we have read in books.

Once again I think the porter should be given a tab on his back for being such a wonderful man and of rouse Mr. Min Thapa for being a great person for making our trip a memorable one.

Keep up the great spirit of being the truthful Nepali friends!

We were a few worry about climbing the Mount Kailash, but all passed very well. We had great wheather and it happened a lot of excitements.

For most of us, the bad weather in Simikot allowed a baothem in helicopter and all the staff was very very kind = porters, sirdars, cook and guide.

Tibet is very wide and desertic country with many colors and we enjoy every much the fantastic landscape of the Mansarovar lake. For Mount Kailash, it was a few difficult but successful!

A very good trek !

Thank you very much a famous team was with us, a French group very enjoyed with team of Mongolian Trekking (Chuda and Jiban) around Kailash from Simikot — Claudine Rubin

Dear Min,

Namaste and warm greetings to you. Thank you so much for all your hard work and efforts on our behalf. It is not every who comes to Nepal with their 93 year old father ! Your comfortable organization made the whole trip MUCH less stressful and your driver was wonderful.

Thanks again for everything



Dear Min,

Thank you for all your help in getting to the top of Imja Tse. I would not have made it without it. Mr. Phuri was a wonderful guide and I am so glad you were able to arrange for him to take me up. You made my whole experience wonderful and you made it so easy on me to arrange everything for my trek and summit.

When I am back in Nepal, I will be sure to come back for some help arranging my next summit trip, after my first taste of mountain climbing, I definitely want to do more in the future.

Thanks again for all yoru help


Cheers – John Mennell

Namaste, Min!

I am overflowed by the great emotions, I remember amazing landscapes, absolutely new feelings, sincere contact with strong and such beautiful nature, tears of pleasure and a feeling if I were ten years younger. I was lucky with my best friend Kirill, who was sharing my emotions and enthusiasm all the way and who had the same physical training. But we both were very lucky with our guides, very kind and attentive people, helping us continually in every way!

Actually we warned you about our arrival less than in a day! You so hospitably met us at the airport and brought to the office, you didn’t know how long was our holiday and how we want to spend the time. I only had time to drink a cup of tea and say that I want to take everything from my life, as you already drove us back to the airport for the plane in Pokhara! Less than for half an hour you organized an excellent track, suitable our preparation, physical ability, suitable for our holiday duration (unfortunately, about 1 week), including the day off in Pokhara for shopping and the unforgettable paragliding, with placement in such beautiful and cozy hotel near the lake and impeccable staff!
Maybe I’ll never understand why so few people travel to Nepal or Tibet, but they can rest for two weeks on the same beach in an expensive hotel in Egypt. What can be better than mountains? what may be the best test of fortitude than trekking?
I hope that my story about one week in Nepal with the events and spiritual growth as one year, will impress my friends and acquaintances. Those who have not walked in the rhododendron forest and saw a cloud of fireflies swirling around you, he missed the magic!
The best wishes and success in the business!

Dear Min,

Thank you so much for your excellent organisation of our trip. We loved it. Thank you also to your brother Jamie, who was so smiley and happy during our trek. We loved Nepal and we will recommend our friends to come here – most of all we will recommend you to them as you have made our trip so special.

You have been a great friend, with lots of patience. We are very sorry we didn’t get to meet your family as we were very much looking forward to it.

Thank you again and please come and visit us in Machester,

Namaste !!

It was great to be met with a smiling, friendly face. We found your travel arrangements first class. And it was lovely to meet your family. Thanks so much.

What a wonderful host you have been. There is no doubt that one of the reasons we will recommend a visit to Nepal will be because of your planning, hospitality & professionalism. On a personal level, we were touched by the courteous reception of your family. A holiday I will NEVER forget.



I would like to start by saying how thankful we are to Paul Hills at Trailfinders Manchester for putting us in contact with you.

We have had the most amazing time in Nepal and we owe that to you, your wonderful family and friends at Mongolian Trekking.

Whilst here we did the Ghorepani/Poon Hill Trek where we witnessed some breathtaking views and enjoyed the company of you and your brother Jamie who taught us some of the joys of Nepalese culture ‘Dhal Bhat, Black Tea & Roksie’ ha-ha.

Following our trek we felt very privileged to be invited to your home town Dubung. This was a truly unique experience that I would highly recommend to anyone. In the village we were invited into the homes of all the people living there and gained true knowledge of how Nepalese people live. Everyone there made us feel very welcome treating us as if we were their own.

On return to Kathmandu we were honored to be invited to your family home for dinner. The food was by far the best we have tasted in Nepal! And your family was some of the loveliest people we have met on our travels!

I am certain we will stay in touch! If any of your family would like to visit us in England we would love to meet them!

Trek Jiri to Kalapatthar to Lukla with Chuda and Jiban (The Boss and the Lion King !!)

What a wonderful trek and stunning views of Himalayas and amazing memories of the special friendly people of the Khumbu region of Nepal.

We are both 60 years old and really appreciated the patience Chuda and Jiban showed us due to our slightly slower pace.

Amazing four weeks we will never forget.

Thank you Min, Chuda and Jiban.

Kind regards,


Gordon and Mariana Loughnan, New Zealand & United Kingdom

Dear Min,

We are both very grateful to Marie for putting us in touch with you. We have had a fantastic time during our trip in Nepal and a lot of that is down to you. Thank you for helping plan our trip and making our time here so stress free and Enjoyable. We have managed to pack so much into our short trip and have experienced much of the diversity and natural beauty of Nepal. Our trip to Bardia was amazing I will never forget our encounter with the angry Rhino !! We cannot thank you and JB enough for our wonderful trek. We had a great time (especially after we got the water and Raksi confused). The views up there were stunning and you were both very patient with our slow ascent. I have visited many places with my work at the BBC but Nepal is at the top of my list. I would recommend a trip to Nepal to anyone, and would definitely recommend they get in touch with you. It was wonderful meeting your lovely family, thank you for your warm hospitality.

Please keep in touch + I’m sure we will be back to Nepal!

Trek Langtang Valley & Gosainkunda Lake !

With Chandra our guide!

Hello Min,

Hello Chandra,

What a wonderful trek for 10 days; starting from Bamboo lodge up to Kyanjing Gompa. We climbed Tsergo Ri (4987) Passing in Thulosyabru, a lovely village we went up to Gosainkunda lake. We met two old French ladies and Oliver our German “honey tea man” and travelled with them. We followed our guide Chandra, safely, slowly and surely. He was always happy and we trusted him. He teached us Nepali songs and we even made a new way in the mountains. We called Anais-Alex-Chandra path!

Thank you for everything and we recommend Chandra to discover the Nepali mountains!

Have a nice trek with luck

And Thank you for everything
