What Client Say About Us
Nous sommes finalement partis en octobre le trek etait tres bien preparé et l'equipe à la faois amicale serviable et efficace permettant de nous sentir en toute securité.
We have just finished a 17 days trek in the Annapurnas and Mustang regions. The trek was demanding at times but from the very beginning we encountered great support and encouragement from Jomson Treks and Expedition who provided the most efficient service.
The city has a humid subtropical climate; however, the elevation keeps temperatures moderate. Temperatures in summer average between 25 and 35 °C; in winter around −2 to 15 °C.
If you are looking for ways to conquer your fear or just want to do something crazy for your adrenaline kicks in, the high lands of our country can help you achieve this goal.
So we decided to continue with them and in August 2010 we have organized the Upper Mustang Trek with the same agency. Guru is the best trekking guide and he has his own trekking company in Pokhara ( Jomsom Treks & Expedition p.ltd)
nous sommes très satisfait de la prestation, car shiva a été un très bon guide, flexible et attentif, avec de bonnes adresses locales pour dejeuner et pour dormir. notre guide Harka était d un dévouement sans faille, et connaissait également très bien la région
Our group of six persons had a wonderful trip to Annapurna Base Camp through the help and expertise of Guru and his team of guides and porters, particularly Chandra, Anil and Samser. Their office in Pokhara is very conveniently situated and accessible by internet
My girlfriend and I just came back from the Ghorepani Trek (Poon Hill) that we did in 4 days (it can be difficult for people who are not in good shape since two of these days are 15 KM/7.5 hours walk per day without speaking of the ascent).
A great experience from the beginning! We looked for some thing off the beaten path and the Model Trek was it. We saw no fellow tourists during our camping portion of the trip ! Just locals Our guide, cook and porters were very good and friendly.
It was a truly great experience. 14 days of pure joy despite some cloudy days (monsoon…). The views from the Thorung La pass (5416m) were just incredible, and some of the villages on the route were magnificent (most notably Upper Pisang and Kagbeni)
