Ganesh and his crew were such a delightful surprise. I really had no idea what we were about to experience. My husband and I booked our trip with Ganesh about a year before we came out. During the entire planning process, Ganesh was right there by our side. He responded to emails and answered all of our questions very quickly and thoroughly along the way. I would often ask him the same question two or three times because I would forget I had already asked, and he would still answer my question patiently. When we arrived, he had been waiting at the airport hours for us to assure he would be there to greet us. He was very professional and extremely hospitable from the get go. Once we started our trek, we spent every moment together and got to know each other very quickly. He went from being our extremely knowledgable and caring guide, to being one of our dearest friends. He let us in into his precious culture, he opened his doors and shared it all with us. I have never felt so welcomed, I have never felt so in wonder by my surroundings, and I have never laughed so hard with someone, as I have with Ganesh. When the trek was hard, he was there encouraging us every step of the way. Don't let him fool you by acting so professional, he is an absolutely HILARIOUS guys with whom we shared many, many laughs. He ALWAYS put our needs first, and made me feel like I was a celebrity. He also gave us plenty of space when we wanted to venture on our own. I will ALWAYS work with Himalayan Wild Treks anytime I go back to Nepal...and I WILL go back. Thank you Ganesh and your wonderful staff for giving me a life changing experience :)Aasley B, United States

I first met Ganesh on a trek to Island Peak, Everest Base Camp, circling back over the pass back to Luka with a group of people. The trek involved a mixture of tenting and a few tea houses. Ganesh not only guided through the trails, he climbed Island Peak with four of us. The trek and climb took several weeks and was organized without a hitch.Roy and Kathy B. , Guam, Mariana Island, America
The second time two of us trekked to Mera Peak, climbed to the summit accompanied by Ganesh, then back over the passes to Luka. Again, mostly tenting. Ganesh assembles a great crew of cooks and porters, keeps the trek entertaining and safe
The third time my wife and I trekked only to Namchee, due to work time constraints. Ganesh and his brother-porter Ashok, cheerfully adjusted the pace to my wife's abilities resulting in an very enjoyable trek.
The fourth time, having had so much fun the first time, my wife and I trekked to Everest Base Camp with Ganesh and Ashok. This was a teahouse trek and Ganesh seemed to be able to find just right ones.
Ganesh will joke with you (his English is good) or let you walk in silence just enjoying the experience. He knows the stories of his culture and will gently tell you ,if you ask him. Always happy, he and Ashok are a good professional but friendly team. Ganesh will adjust the pace of the trek to your fitness level so experts and novices can be comfortable booking with him.
As our history shows, we highly recommend Ganesh and would not book anyone else if we return to Nepal.

The best guide and Trekking company in Nepal!Jasmin G , Switzerland
I was lucky to meet Ganesh when I was traveling in Nepal in October 2017. I went on the Annapurna Basecamp trekking with him and his porter Noresh for 11 days. Before we started the trek I had a lot of questions and Ganesh would always answer all of them patientely and immediately. We met 1 day before the trek and all the questions were answered and we were ready to go. Everything was well organized and also during the trek everything was perfect. Ganesh is a wonderful guide! his english is very good and he knows a lot about Nepal and the culture. he is very patient and answers all the questions. he is also a very funny guy and is smiling a lot and ready for a joke :-) I really enjoyed the trek and would always book again with Himalayan Wild Treks! even if you travel alone as a woman you will feel safe and comfortable with Ganesh and Noresh. I really liked the mix between talking and silence! I could also walk by myself for a few hours in silence, I really appreciated that! Thanks a lot and I will always highly recommend you my friend!

Ganesh guided us on two treks, and I do not hesitate to recommend him. He has a thorough knowledge of the terrain, customs and wildlife of Nepal. One of the highlights of our trips was a visit to his home village of Gudel south of the Everest Base Camp trek where we were treated like “visiting royalty.” He was very attentive to our needs and did everything possible to ensure that our trek was safe and enjoyable. He, as well as the entire crew, were a pleasure to travel with.Larry Green , Saskatoon, canada

“ If you are considering travelling or trekking in Nepal there is no better company to go with than Himalayan Wild Treks!! There aren’t words expressive enough to convey how highly I would recommend Ganesh and his team.Bobbie Deno , Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada
I truly had no business going on a trek as challenging as the Upper Dolpo adventure only 2 months after having to have an unexpected knee surgery. My stubborn spirit and the steadfast belief I had to take this trip would not let me back out of all that had been planned for most of a year. My will was strong, but sadly my endurance on some of our more challenging days simply was not what it could have and should have been.
Ganesh and his team on the occasions I was lagging, carried my pack, went at my pace, and never once made me feel badly about being slower than the rest of my group. I will always be grateful for their unflagging kindness and good humour!
As a group our needs were unfailingly met and exceeded. (who gets a birthday cake on a trek!?!). We were so thoroughly cared for that there are some things I miss now that I am home.
Ganesh, and the team they put together worked tirelessly to make sure our experience was amazing. When I go back to Nepal, Ganesh and Himalayan Wild Treks will be my first call. “

Ganesh guided me on 3 Nepal treks. Everest Base Camp in 2011. Gokyo & Island Peak(6089m) in 2012. Annapurna Circuit in 2015. I experienced a peaceful and contented lifestyle and Ganesh was instrumental in making it so. Ganesh is knowledgeable and adaptable and aware and kind. Heand his wife Maya make remarkable personal sacrifices for the future of their children Mira, Dhuki, and Nirman. I sincerely recommend Ganesh and encourage others to support him and his family by trekking with him.

We have travelled with Ganesh and his team on two separate occasions, in 2012 to Everest Base Camp and again in 2017 to the Annapurna Circuit. On both trips we have been impressed with the level of service that Ganesh provides. It’s worth noting that we have been in the older age category (ages 59 and 60 in 2012, 64 and officially a senior in 2017). On both treks, despite some physical challenges, we have had successful treks. Ganesh’s first concern is the comfort and well being of his clients. He is very aware of the needs of his clients; if anyone is struggling, he is the first to recognize it and to make sure he is able to get the situation resolved safely. He has lots of local knowledge so is able to answer any questions, whether about landscape or customs and culture. Ganesh listens carefully and works to accommodate any reasonable requests. We have appreciated his choice of guides and porters not only for their professionalism and the level of service they provide, but also for their friendliness and the group culture this creates. Trekking with Ganesh is truly an authentic Nepalese experience.Vern and Ruth B., Saskatoon, SK Canada
