We (8 people) were very delighted, that Gokarna (from Nature Lovers Treks & Tours) was keen to share the insights and gave advices about trekking in Nepal long before our trip - thus we had plenty of time to prepare us physically, mentally, get some gear and sort out various scenarios for Sagarmatha National park - 3 passes trek (EBC inclusive) in 16 days.
We've had the greatest trekking experience each and every day of the trip!
Firstly - warm meeting in Kathmandu, well-thought of accommodation, transport, and even free time around the city.
Later - well organized travel to Lukla, friendly meeting with the team, that was leading us all the trail. All the team members (guide and his assistant, porters) were very friendly, helpful and keen to represent Nepal and its people the best possible way. They guided us and stopped at he best (sometimes - a few steps from the path) view spots, picked the coziest lodges (tea-houses) with friendly hosts, every night adjusted the planned route according to weather and our capabilities. and were leading the front and supportive at the back on every steeper uphill.
Therefore, the trekking itself was the smooth journey discovering mountains, people, friendships, culture and myself - the essentials that are at the heart of Nepal.
After this experience I highly recommend Nature Lovers Treks & Tours. Gokarna was always one step ahead - in planning and while trekking - get in touch with them before your trip, tune in your goals and peaks you want to reach, take a note of Gokarna's insightful advices (he's keen to share them), and set off for the journey to discover Nepal with the best guides - Nature Lovers Treks & Tours.
As they say - you come for the mountains, but you come back for people.
My wife and I planned a trip to trek the Himalayas in Nepal. We chose nature lovers because they were the only trecking company to commit to a specific lodge on our journey. From start to finish Gokarna From nature lovers was there to help from landing at the airport to leaving the airport in Katmandu. We learned through our journey it’s very important to have high knowledge of the villages you will be visiting as well as Contacts in those villages, nature lovers had the knowledge and knew the contacts. We had some twists and turns during our journey and they were able to accommodate very quickly. If you were looking to plan a trip to Nepal for trecking, you want to definitely check out nature lovers. This trip was the most amazing and enjoyable trip we could imagine. We are currently planning to go back in the fall of 2023 and we will be doing it with nature lovers. Thank you Gokarna for everything, you are amazing !!
We did a month trek with our guide Rabin and the porters from Nature Lovers Treks & Tours. First we went to Manaslu circuit then we took a day rest in Kathmandu and we flew to Lukla for the Gokyo Lake trekking. The Himalayas have made us fall in love once again in Nepal. Everytime, it gets better and better. In such a sharp cost for both treks, Gokarna and his team of field staffs have made our journey so much wonderful. When we were in the Kathmandu city, we couldn’t stop our hearts from wandering to the mountains. The mountains are so pretty and they are the real love.
After we did tough Manaslu circuit and the difficult Larke pass, we had to take some time off since we finished the trek one day early. Then we headed for Everest zone. It was extraordinarily different experience than we had earlier on. Everest zone is somehow differently amazing. Gokyo valley is our favourite and after we hiked to the top of Gokyo we saw the miracle. It is heaven up there. We cannot wait to share this experience to our friends and family. Thank you Nature Lovers for this lifetime experience. We will highly recommend you to all of our connections. It is hundred percent safe and Nature Lovers is there to make sure of that.
Most humbling and awe-inspiring experience of my life! Gokarna was great with preparing us for our trek from the equipment to a warmup day-hike through a nearby conservation area. He's super knowledgeable and connected to all tours across Nepal and our guide, Dewan, was phenomenal. He always made sure we were comfortable in our Tea Houses, had slept and eaten enough, and consciously looked for signs of altitude sickness (which we thankfully avoided). Amazing price for the quality of service you get!
One of the most memorable experiences in my life. The team communicated effectively and gave me all the information I needed in a relaxed approach that made me choose them as an operator. Picked up at the airport and taken care of from the first minute. The owner himself ensured I was comfortable and had everything I needed. Guide took care of me and checked on me constantly. Constant comms throughout our trek to check our progress. We were slammed by natural events which put us behind schedule but we made this up with the guide accepting and supporting my abilities. I was well taken care of in every aspect and supported during the trek. I was a solo traveller but every meal was invited to sit in the kitchen with company and checked on to make sure I was ok. It was a fantastic experience with memories to last a lifetime.
Thank you to the Nature Lovers Treks and Tours team for all the support.
They will always be my preferred operator and friends. I recommend them highly
