We made the Langtang Trek with Charming Guide Adventure Trek (Gosainkund included) and travelled through Mustang – also known as the former kingdom of Lo.  We will always think of these two trips as an unforgettable experience. Our special thanks to our ever cheerful mountain guide Mr Hari Kumar Khatri and his competent crew. But also the unique landscape of Nepal, the wonderful villages and the very polite Nepalese people rendered these trips a truly memorable experience.We enjoyed our treks from the very start to the very end and went home wishing to come back soon. No wonder that we have already booked our next journey - the Manaslu trek is waiting for us and we are looking forward to it

​Wir haben mit Charming Guide Adventure Trek den Langtang-Trek mit Gosainkund gemacht und waren auch im ehemaligen Königreich Mustang unterwegs. Beide Male war es ein Erlebnis, das uns ein Leben lang in allerbester Erinnerung bleiben wird. Die Einzigartigkeit dieser unvergesslichen Reisen lag zum einen Teil an der stets gut gelaunten und kompetenten Crew mit Bergführer Hari Kumar Khatri, zum anderen Teil an der unvergleichlichen Landschaft Nepals, den wunderbaren Dörfern und den höflichen Menschen dort. Vom ersten bis zum letzten Tag unserer Treks haben wir uns wohlgefühlt und gingen mit dem Gefühl nach Hause, unbedingt wiederkommen zu wollen.  Kein Wunder deshalb, dass wir auch dieses Jahr bereits einen Trek gebucht haben. Die Manaslu-Umrundung wartet schon auf uns und wir auf sie…

Wer einen sehr kompetenten, erfahrenen und vor allem zuverlässigen Guide sucht, ist bei Hari gut aufgehoben. Vor meiner ersten Nepal-Reise hatte ich bereits von Deutschland aus nach einer guten Adresse gesucht, um nicht in Kathmandu von den Angeboten der über 1.000 Agenturen überfordert zu werden. Bei meiner Recherche im Internet bin ich auf die Homepage und Empfehlung von Michael Reinold gestoßen: http://www.reinold-online.de/guide.htm
und habe mich dann in einem sehr positiven Telefonat mit Michael Reinold endgültig überzeugen lassen. Nach zwei Touren mit Hari im Langtang und Annapurna, kann ich diese hervorrangende Empfehlung uneingeschränkt bestätigen!
