  • Nepal is the ultimate destination for you, if you have hunger for a thrilling experience of trekking around the breath taking mountain range, beautiful villages, monasteries, flora and fauna.

    While Trekking in Nepal, You will be walking through the picturesque villages inhabited by diverse ethnic groups, pristine forests of Juniper and Rhododendron, and accompanying you throughout will be the icy pinnacles of the Himalayas.

    There are two different ways to operate the Trekking in Nepal, one is “Camping trek” and the other one is “Tea House Trek”. The Camping trek is operated to those areas where there are no lodges and restaurants, so it is obvious to go with all necessary gears/equipments and all necessary staffs such as Guide, Assistance Guide, Cook, Kitchen assistance & Porters. We will be spending over night into tent and the cook will prepare delicious food on time.

    The tea house trek will be operated to those destinations where we can find the tea houses along the trekking rout. It seems the tea house trekking is more luxury and easy.

    Everest region, Annapurna region & Langtang region are most popular “Tea House Trekking” regions. Camping trekking can be operated anywhere in Nepal where ever you are interested, we have some camping trekking areas which are already opened for trekking such as Ganesh Himal, Manasalu, Panch Pokhari, Rolwaling, Makalu, Kanchanjanga, Gorkha Trek, Ganga Jamuna, Mustang, Dolpa etc.

  • Namaste und viele Grüße aus dem Himalayaland Nepal !

    Mein Name ist Sanjib Adhikari. Ich bin ein selbständiger Treckingführer und Reiseleiter und möchte mich Ihnen gern vorstellen.

    Ich bin in einem felsigen und entlegenen Bezirk des Zentralen Himalayagebietes geboren und aufgewachsen. Ich begann meinen Beruf im Abenteuertourismus als ich sehr jung war und nachdem ich meine High-School beendet hatte. Ich arbeitete 8 Jahre für verschiedene Treckingagenturen zuerst als Träger (Porter), dann als Assistent für den Treckingführer und jetzt arbeite ich als unabhängiger Treckingführer. Ich habe bereits eine Lizenz als Treckingführer vom Ministerium für Tourismus der Nepalesischen Regierung erworben.

    Ich habe viele Gruppen aus Europa, den USA, Kanada und Australien durch die nepalesischen Regionen des Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Mustang, Dolpo, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Manaslu, Ganesch Himalaya, Helambu und durch die tibetischen Gebiete des Mt. Kailash und Lhasa sowie durch die Regionen Ladakh und Sikkim in Indien geführt. Bei den von mir organisierten Treckingtouren habe ich viele verschiedene Erfahrungen gemacht und mir ein großes Wissen über Geografie, Religion, Kultur, Flora und Fauna und Umweltbelange in diesen Gebieten erworben. Meine Erfahrungen aus den vielen Treckingtouren haben mich zu einem Experten für Organisation von einzigartigen Treckingzielen entsprechend den Vorstellungen, Interessen und dem Budget meiner Klienten gemacht.

    Für diejenigen internationalen Trecker, die hohe Pässe und Berge besteigen möchten, kann ich auch dieses anspruchsvolle und lohnende Abenteuer organisieren. Meine eigenen Erfahrungen im Abenteuertourismus umfassen die Besteigung des Mera und Island Gipfel, des Kalapathar und Gokyo Gipfel, sowie des Tseryo li Berges.

    Es sind viele verschiedene Arten von Trecks in Nepal möglich, angefangen vom einfachen und erholsamen Treck, auf dem man die nepalesische Kultur und das Leben auf den Dörfern kennen lernen kann mit Übernachtungen in örtlichen Lodges ( Teehäusern) in bekannten Regionen bis hin zu entlegenen und eingeschränkten Gebieten mit abgelegenen Wegen und seltenen Besuchen von Ausländern. Auf allen Trecks erlebt man spektakuläre Szenen und macht gute Erfahrungen mit der nepalesischen Kultur. Wenn jemand einen persönlich zugeschnittenen Treck wünscht, kann ich diesen Anforderungen gerecht werden.

    Von Zeit zu Zeit frische ich meine Fähigkeiten und mein Wissen auf, indem ich an Kursen zur Sicherheit, Ersten Hilfe, Rettungsmaßnahmen, Hygiene und Kochen teilnehme. Ich spreche fließend Englisch und Chinesisch.

    Meine Klienten waren sehr zufrieden mit meinem professionellen Service und wenn sie möchten, können sie gern ihre Kommentare auf meiner Webseite lesen.

    Bitte nehmen sie Kontakt mit mir über meine angegebenen E-mail Adressen auf, wenn sie irgendwelche Fragen haben oder mögliche Trecks in Nepal mit mir besprechen möchten.
