Ich habe diese Jahr bereits meine vierte Tour mit Hari und seinem Team gemacht. Diesmal ging es ins Tsumtal und rund um den Manaslu. Es war wie immer eine tolle Tour. Hari ist ein sehr guter,  verantwortungsvoller und sehr umsichtiger Guide. Auch die Trägermannschaft war wie immer top!
Ich kann Hari und sein Team uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Hari spricht sehr gut deutsch und englisch. Es ist sehr unkompliziert, eine Reise mit ihm zu planen. Das kann bequem schon von zu Hause über Mailkontakt organisiert werden. Den Hin- und Rückflug haben wir selber gebucht, um alles andere vor Ort hat sich Hari gekümmert und dieses -wie immer- bestens organisiert.
Vielen Dank an Hari und die Jungs und bis zum nächsten Mal!

Client Reviews

2019 haben wir einen Nepaltrip mit Hari und sein Team verwirklicht. Hari hat uns im Vorfeld geführt, denn wir können zwar die Annapurna umrunden, aber auch möglichst viel in den Seitentälern wandern. Er hat für uns eine Route durch das Nhar-Phu-Tal und auch zum Tilicho-See aus dem und dem Krieg für uns genau richtig. Die Vorbereitung, die Umsetzung, die Kunst wie Hari auf unsere Wünsche Wünsche ist ist Krieg - wir Ebene mit Hari auf jeden Herbst eine weitere Tour.

In May 2019, my father and I, did a trekking in Mustang with Hari Kumar Khatri as a guide and the “Mannschaft”: Nabin, Biman, Shatiman and Harkha. The trekking lasted about 20 days and we basically always slept in tends: sometimes outside the houses of the villagers and sometimes in the middle of nowhere.
Unfortunately, especially in the southern part of the Upper Mustang, people are building many roads which are literally destroying the landscape. But thanks to the knowledge of Hari of this territory, we were able to avoid the majority of the roads consequently avoiding other tourists and the traffic.
Overall, the trekking was very well organized. I really appreciated the fact that we were able to adapt the itinerary according to our preferences even during the trekking! I must add that Hari is not only a good guide but also a great cook!
This was my second trek with Hari and once again I really enjoyed it and I would for sure recommend him as a guide to somebody interested in doing a trekking in Nepal.
Thank you Hari and the Mannschaft for the great trekking and happy moments!

Wir (2Pers.) haben im Oktober/November 2019, mit Nabin als Guide, den Manaslu Trekk und das Tsum Valley gemacht. Organisation und Durchführung der Reise waren top.Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld mit Hari hat auch bestens geklappt. Es war ein unvergesslicher Urlaub und ich werde bestimmt nochmal nach Nepal kommen und dann auch wieder mit dieser Agentur unterwegs sein.
Liebe Grüße an das ganze Team
