Everest View Trek - June 2017
We chanced upon through their website and was followed by their main person Paras ji who from the beginning organized for us this short trip on the Everest trek from Lukla to Namche Bazaar.Their guide Nirmal,was most attentive while took good care of us and his patience for our slow walk.The only matter was we wished for more time but we are already planning for another adventure.
Trek to Annapurna circuit - June 2017
A well managed trek to the Annapurna circuit. We had been provided with very good and experienced team of trek lead and Porter's. Stay was also at nice and clean tea houses.....over all I would always suggest this trek company for a nice experience.
EBC 2017 - June 2017
Myself and the other members of our group can't speak highly enough of Imperial Treks. When doing our research last year we were sceptical of many companies we came across and eventually settled on Imperial because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Even so, we were still wary of sending money abroad but the company remained professional throughout and gave us no reason to doubt them.
We liaised beforehand with Paras who happily answered all of our questions and despite being out of touch for several months (our fault), we still had an immediate response when we queried out airport pick-up the night before travelling. The hotel that Imperial use in Kathmandu is clean, well located and nothing is too much trouble. They changed money on site as well which was extremely helpful.
We met our guide (Sujan) the day before beginning the trek and all of us will agree that we instantly felt in good hands. Throughout the trek, nothing was too much trouble for Sujan. When members of our group felt ill he would carry their bag; if someone was injured he'd be on hand with basic first aid. Most importantly he encouraged us when we were struggling and made us want to carry on.
I became ill with altitude sickness the day before reaching Base Camp and Sujan quickly organised my return to Kathmandu. I was terrified at the thought of being in hospital in a foreign country but Paras met me there and made sure I had everything I needed. He then made himself available in Kathmandu for the extra few days while I was waiting for the other members of my party to return to make sure I was okay.
For the rest of our stay in Nepal, Paras was happy to arrange in impromptu trip to Chitwan National Park which certainly didn't feel as if it had been planned last minute and was a great way to end our trip.
We can't recommend Paras and Sujan enough- they absolutely made our trip to Nepal as great as it was. Sujan and our lovely porters were the only reason we got as far as we did on the trek and we've been missing seeing them every day ever since!
If anybody is considering booking through Imperial Treks but is even slightly unsure, I hope this review convinces you that you won't find a more professional or helpful company.

Super awesome trek with my guide gautam. Friendly and communicates well in English. Could not have ask for a better guide! Thanks to Ram too for arranging the trek on such a short notice.
Everest base camp reached with just basics - June 2017
Many thanks to Paras of imperial Nepal Treks. We had bad experience going to Everest Base camp because we lost all our baggage on flight to Nepal.
Paras gave us a sleeping bag plus downs jacket! He also took us to shops to buy neccesary stuff.
Many thanks for all arrangements. It will be a life long memory!

Awesome adventure! - June 2017
We just finished a 17 day trek to basecamp, Cho La pass, and Gokyo. It could not have been any more fun or gone any smoother. Ram organized everything in less than a day, planning the trek, hooking us up with a great guide (Dinesh, who's awesome), and even helping me retrieve my credit card that had been eaten by a nearby ATM machine. He saved the day again when flights were cancelled from weather, calling in favors to get us on the best flights for the next day. Word to the wise...Always be on the first flight in and out of Lukla.
In short, we couldn't recommend Imperial trekking, Ram, Dinesh, Lakpa, or our route enough. We will definitely be back!

One of the best holiday's I ever had - May 2017
I've booked a private trekking to Everest Base Camp via Jiri and it have been one of my best holidays ever.
Before I booked I was contacted by phone a couple of times by Paras the company owner and he answered all my questions. Then from the moment I arrived on Kathmandu Airport till the moment I was dropped back at the airport they took care of me every minute.
The trip itself was very well organised and the guide did know his job. I didn't have to worry about anything.
I had a great experience and would definitely book agian with Imperial.
EBC Trek and Chitwan National Park. - May 2017
It's scary booking a trip like this online from England and trusting a trek company that you know very little about. It really is nerve wracking to send a deposit in good faith. We were understandably very nervous and picked imperial nepal treks based solely on its internet footprint and the reviews on trip advisor. Paras the manager and his sales team answered all our queries before the trek promptly and even called us to finalise all our plans. So we decide to take a leap of faith and go with imperial nepal as our chosen trekking agency and what a great decision we made. From the moment we were met at the airport we were in good hands. We were treated like royalty and given welcome garlands on arrival and were swiftly transported safely to our hotel the blue horizon in a peaceful area on the outskirts of busy thamel. The hotel was perfect. Hot water for showers and shaded gardens to take breakfast and friendly helpful staff to look after our every need. Next day we met Paras who explained our full itinerary in detail and we paid the remaining balance of our trip. The trek cost included a city tour which was a fantastic introduction to kathmandu and a welcome nepalese meal in a restaurant with traditional dancing and an opportunity to meet Sujan our guide for the trek. We were kitted out with sleeping bags and down coats and next morning we were off to the airport for our pre arranged flights to Lukla to begin the trek. Sujan our guide was out of this world. He made the whole trek a fabulous experience from start to finish. He was patient kind honourable and the most helpful and friendly guide we could have asked for and I can honestly say that nothing was too much trouble for him during the whole trek. In fact we would not have safely completed the trek without his assistance his experience and his support. The porters were amazing too. Very friendly and amazingly hard working and patient. The whole trek was very well organised and we were treated like royalty from beginning to end. Sujan is a real asset to imperial nepal treks we simply cannot speak highly enough of him. On our return from the trek we went to Chitwan National Park for 3 nights and once again Paras and imperial Nepal treks arranged our whole trip like clockwork. If you are thinking of any activities or trips in Nepal then do not hesitate to use imperial Nepal. They are a reliable trustworthy and experienced tour company who made our trip to Nepal into the trip of a lifetime. Nigel Nicola Nathan and Lauren.
Amazing Poon Hill & ABC Trekking Trip - May 2017
My boyfriend and I decided to go to ABC, Nepal for our first trekking trip. We booked our trip with "Imperial Nepal" as recommended by my friend.
Thanks to "Mr. Ram" our consultant by providing us all details we needed to know before traveling and taking us for welcome dinner in Kathmandu. We like "Chicken Dal Bhat" a lot and waiting for welcoming you in Bangkok.
A big thanks to "Mr. Santosh and Mr. Roman", we enjoyed our 9 days in the mountains a lot!!! It was so beautiful, everyday was a good memory. Thank you again for taking us to the base camp. We can do it!!!
EBC nice trekking ExPeriance - May 2017
In my 3rd visit to Kathmandu and my journey to EBC was organized by Mr. Ram from Imperial Nepal Private Day Trekking. I am happy with the overall package that they gave us including the guide.
ABC Trek - May 2017
When looking at holiday destinations we knew we wanted to experience culture and adventure with a bit of a challenge thrown in.
Our choice to go to Nepal and trek Annapurna Base Camp was an easy one and choosing Imperial Nepal Treks helped make it one of the best experiences and holiday of our lives.
From the moment we enquired online with Paras, to our online booking and arriving in Nepal 8 months later we had received great advice, service and attention.
Our 14 day Annapurna Base Camp itinerary had been arranged to suit our personal requests and suited us perfectly. We also included an overnight Nargakot hike which was a great introduction to Nepal and got our hiking legs ready for ABC.
We chose to fly to Pokhara in preparation for our trek and were happy to catch the bus back to Kathmandu afterwards.
Wonderful weather, great food and our informative, friendly and fun guide Chandra and porter Ramzi made our trip so enjoyable. Their support and individual attention was so helpful and appreciated. We were looked after so well.
Thank you Imperial Nepal Treks for the wonderful memories.
Great ABC Trek Experience - April 2017
Very good service from Imperial Nepal Treks. Ram is very helpful from the beginning of planning until our flight back home. He always make sure that we are satisfied enough with the itinerary and accommodation along the package.
Our guide is Santosh. Santosh is also a very friendly guide. He always making sure about our safety and comfort along the treks. Their porters are also very polite and always try to give great service to us.
All in all, Imperial Nepal Trek gives us great experience along our visit in Nepal. Definitely will use their service again in the future!
EBC Tour - Amazing Experience, good company! - April 2017
Great experience with Imperial Trek. From the beginning Paras took care I got all the information I need and patiently answered by email/skype all my tonnes of questions. The tour itself was as well good organized with good accommodation and food during the trek. Hari is an amazing guide, always in a good mood, positive vibe and made the journey a fun and incredible experience.
Everest Base Camp!! - April
Imperial were an amazing company at a great price! I would definitely recommend them to anyone doing base camp!!!
Trek to Everest Base Camp - April 2017
I have nothing but positive feedback to give. Paras was very helpful in getting back to me via email with my many questions. The trip was a very competitively priced (the cheapest we could find after communicating with many companies). We received everything as advertised. Accommodation and food exceeded expectations and was very comfortable considering where we were. Our porters were fantastic. The highlight of using Imperial would have to be our guide, Gautam Lamsal. He was caring, professional, respectful and a wonderful person. We made good friends with Gautam and we felt very comfortable entrusting him with getting us to and from base camp safely. He made our journey very pleasurable.
Trekking to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes - April 2017
From the moment locally based Imperial Nepal Treks and Expeditions picked my friend Peter and I (Greg) up from Kathmandu International Airport through to dropping us back 26 days later, we were both so happy that we chose INT from the myriad of Kathmandu and internationally based trekking companies that offered their services to us for our trek to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes. INT's all inclusive price was very competitive and turned out to be excellent value for us. We are from Sydney, Australia and experienced hikers and trekkers.
Our accommodation before and after the trek was centrally located in Thamel and was of the highest standard and together with our guided day tour of Kathmandu's major historical and religious destinations was a great introduction to the company and our trip.We met Paras, our tour manager, over breakfast to go through final arrangements and then attended a welcome dinner with our guide Dinesh prior to our departure. We were made to feel like family and everything we expected and hoped for over the ensuring weeks exceeded our expectations.
Dinesh is a fantastic guide, highly experienced, extremely knowledgeable, patient, all most as funny as us, and by the end of the trip we considered him to be a great bloke and a mate. Deservedly high praise from Peter and I.
Our return flights to Lukla, all our meals and accommodation and all our needs and necessities were taken care of by Dinesh. Heavy snow meant we were unable to cross high passes originally on the itinerary. No worries, after discussions with Dinesh and on his advice we were back down and up valleys and reaching our intended destinations with the minimum of fuss and without any problems. Dinesh took care of everything and were were able to see magnificent mountain scenery and stay in fantastic village tea houses along the way. A truly memorable experience in a unique part of the world.
So if your planning an adventure holiday in Nepal the best advice I can give you is to include Imperial Nepal Treks and Expeditions, Paras and Dinesh, on your short list of companies to make your inquiries and if you decide as we did to go with INT then I am sure you will have both a safe trip and an unforgettable experience in Kathmandu and on the mountain trek of your choice.

“Extremely Satisfied with our EBC experience” - April 2017
We booked in with Imperial Nepal to complete the 13 day tour to EBC. The accommodation provided at each ended of the trek in Kathmandu exceeded our expectations! All personnel that we met with were very friendly and efficient and all necessary information that we needed was provided. We were unfortunate to experience illness before we were due to start the trek and the company were very helpful and accommodating in ensuring we were able to postpone, but still complete our trek at minimal extra cost. Accommodation along the route was once again better than our expectations. Our guide and porter completed their tasks (i.e. getting us there and back) efficiently and effectively. I would not hesitate in recommending this company. If I ever come back to Nepal for another trek I will be booking through Imperial Nepal
“Annapurna Trek” - April 2017
My friends and I did a 7 day trip along the Annapurna circuit. Our guide Dinesh was incredible, he made the trip fun and memorable. He was well versed in navigation which reassured any hesitations that we may have had beforehand. We trekked at the beginning of monsoon season and Dinesh prepared us for encountering leeches, because we were most nervous about that. He always made sure that he ordered food to our liking and he taught us some Nepalese card games. As a company, Imperial Nepal was great. We never had to wait on accommodation or food. We were able to add rafting at the Trisuli River Resort and a city tour of the highlights in Kathmandu. They also provided down jackets for the Poon Hill trek on our final days. Overall, this was one of the most memorable trips of my life and I would book it again.
“Annapurna Round trek” - April 2017
Special thanks to my guide Kumar and my porter Lama for a fantastic Annapurna Round trek in March 2017. The scenery was truly spectacular every day of the trek, and also very diverse. It started snowing when we got to Chame which meant we had to change the itinerary a little bit, staying an extra night at both Chame and Pisang than we had planned. However, the extra time, and good weather in the days that followed, meant that we were able to cross Thorong La, unlike the many people we saw coming in the opposite direction when we were ascending towards Manang. It really shows the benefit of having an experienced guide, and Kumar was fantastic. He ran the trek very professionally and was very funny; I would highly recommend him to other trekkers.
My experience with Imperial Nepal was also excellent. Ram provided me with a lot of information through email exchanges and a WhatsApp call, as well as when we met at the Blue Horizon hotel (which was very comfortable). The trek was very easy to book through Imperial Nepal, and the other aspects of the trip -- the day tour of Kathmandu (guided by Deepak) and the welcome dinner -- were also very good.

“Everest Base Camp Trek.” - April 2017
28/3/2017 - 3/4/2017Thanks to the Guide. Hari and the Assistant Guide. Cheton for providing a great and safe Everest Base Camp Trek to me. They are both funny, helpful and responsible at the same time. As a guaranty, you will probably have no chance to get sick or injured as long as you follow his rules, and it's also guaranteed for you to reach the base camp as well. Beside that, they've provided as much helps as possible to me whenever I needed it. So you don't need to worry about anything, and in fact, it's actually a worry-free trek.Lastly, many thanks to them for making it possible for me to set a new record for finishing the 10-day trek in just seven days, I wouldn't have chance to make it without both of them.
“Amazing trip with a great guide (EBC 13 days trek)” - April 2017
We went as a couple and took the 13 days trek to Everest Base Camp with Imperial Nepal through the mojhi.com portal. Our guide was Dinesh Khanal, who took care of us every minute of the trip. This included making sure we had clean water, ordering all our meals, setting and enforcing our schedule, being prepared in case of an emergency (like altitude sickness) and even simpler things like having fruit sliced for us at the end of every dinner. I don't think we would have made it all the way to Base Camp without Dinesh's constant help and care. Our porter was amazing too, literally lifting a huge weight off our shoulders like it was nothing!
The trek itself is beautiful, but it can be very demanding if you have little trekking experience. We followed Imperial Nepal's and Mojhi's equipment guidelines to the letter, and there was nothing we did not use. Just don't get a down jacket and a sleeping bag... Imperial Nepal provides those. Accommodations were very good for the trek and the season. Always ask if you can upgrade to a better room if available (with a private bathroom, for example) since it's not very expensive to do so.
A couple of specific recommendations:
- If you are paying for the package in Kathmandu, talk to Ram from Imperial Nepal about which debit/credit cards are accepted before going (our take cash with you. In Kathmandu is better to have cash).
- I highly recommend TWO walking sticks per person even if you're only going to use one, it could break... we saw it happen.
- Bring a BIG power bank. If possible a solar-powered one, since charging devices along the trek is slow and expensive.
- Bring something to protect your phone from extreme cold. Mine (and others') shut down right on EBC because of the cold.
- Bring a good amount of wet wipes. You're going to need for number 2, but also closer to Base Camp when the showers are not available because of the cold.
- We took the 13 days trek which only has 1 day of acclimatization. If possible, take a couple more days along the way to prevent altitude sickness and exhaustion.
- A big bag of almonds, an absurd amount of individually wrapped cookies and many chocolates helped us survive along the way. Buy them before flying to Lukla, because after that they are very expensive.
- And, finally, we highly recommend going in February. It was super cold, but there were so few people doing the trek... in certain stretches it felt like it was only us up there in the mountains.
Big thanks to Mojhi and Imperial Nepal for all their help before, during and after the trip. Special thanks to our guide Dinesh and our porter, who always went the extra mile.

A wonderful experience. Imperial met us at Kathmandu airport and transported us to our hotel. Paras met with us at the hotel and gave us a rundown of our itinerary.The next morning we were taken on a guided tour of Kathmandu and later a meal at a traditional restaurant.The next day all flights to Lukla were cancelled due to weather. No problem as Imperial ferried us back into town and put us up in a hotel.We finally got under way the next day when the weather cleared.Our guide Sujan was excellent as were the rest of the crew. They are great characters and we enjoyed our interaction with them.The accommodation and meals during the trek were above expectations. We had need of a medical evacuation late in the trek and this was handled very well. Imperial followed up and proved themselves to be very caring and supportive.We were very impressed with Imperial. The consensus among our group of 12 was they went the extra yards to make our time in Nepal a wonderful experience.

“Everest Base Camp trek” - March 2017
We spent 10 days trekking EBC and had a great time with imperial. The guide was able to tailor the trip to what we wanted and despite terrible weather conditions at the top, we still made it to Base Camp. Usually there are a couple of acclimatisation days on the way up, our guide was flexible enough to move onto different villages off the beaten track but still at similar altitude to keep these days interesting as ever. Also a very big thank you to our power house porter Peanut, who was an excellent additional guide and took me up Kalapattar at 4.30 in the morning in -40 conditions. Some point to Remember, there are substantial fees on international credit cards locally, so either pay everything before or bring cash equivalent for the trekThis as well as a lack of coordination initially by Imperial takes it from a 5 star to a 4 star, prior knowledge of kit, medication, preventative altitude sickness pill taking would have been very helpful. Great value for money, and as a hobby photographer, I got shots of a lifetime. Thanks Imperial! Max CVisited January 2017

In total, the trek was really well organized, we stayed in good guesthouses (as good as it gets in the mountains), and fully enjoyed meeting other travelers and local Nepalese alike. Hari Amgai, our guide was hilarious and very caring to all of our needs. He even taught us a few traveling songs as well as a fun Nepalese card game called Dhumal!

We went to the Tilicho lake also, and we slept to the Thorung la pass base camp. We make a shortcut between Mukthinat and Tatopani. And we walked since Tatopani to the ABC (Annapurna base camp). The both was cold but so magic, I will never forget this experience! in November and beginning December, the temperatures during the journey are fines, and the night are cold. But if you have good closes, it's easy, and there is less tourists and very blue sky. I think, that's the best period in this area.
The agency and the guid manage very well the walking plan, find good lodges, and they are very flexible. Also, they have managed a great surprise for my birthday, and they are very welcoming!

We were a party of six and our guide Sujan and porters were all fantastic and expertly led us on our adventure. They all spoke English, were very friendly, and supportive, especially at times when I struggled. Playing cards, learning Nepalese and getting to know our team personally enhanced the whole experience. The staff at Imperial Nepal were excellent, well organised and professional from our first contact with Paras via the internet to our final departure from Kathmandu. We were well looked after and could adapt our plans as desired. We were treated to great meals and the best hotels at better prices than we could get on our own.

"A little bit up, a little bit down... mostly flat" (well not quite).Firstly - the staff at Imperial Nepal are brilliant. Paras took care of all the details of the trip from the time we arrived to the time we got on the van back to the airport.Our guide Sujan was considerate and encouraging - kept us on track and on time to ABC despite our various illnesses. The porters - Sudip, Prakash and Depok were perpetually cheerful and willing to share their language and culture.Early winter is one of the best times to do the walk - few people on the trail, lots of room at the tea houses and temperatures are pretty comfortable (high teens during day and a little below freezing at night - depending on altitude).Note: the walk involves a several (thousand) stairs. However the views along the way and at ABC more than make up for the effort. Overall an excellent walk and I highly recommend the guys at Imperial Nepal.

This was our first experience trekking in Nepal and we opted to go to Poon Hill with Imperial trek. Our guide, Shusil, was very accommodating to most of our needs. Always eager to tend with to our needs while unselfishly share information about Annapurna with us. During trekking, he provided us with some gentle motivation and ample rest for us to be able to reach the summit of Poon Hill, especially on day 2, with the crazy climbs.
On day 4 of our 5 day trip, we did not want to continue trekking due to fatigue and they were kind enough to change our plans to ensure we are taken care of after we returned to Pokhara.

“Great Company with which to Hike” - December 2016
My family and I recently trekked to Everest Base Camp (EBC) with Imperial Nepal Trek (INT) and this company really did so much for us to make our experience enjoyable and unforgettable.They had a high level of professionalism and were well-organised since our touch down in Kathmandu. At the airport we were met by who was to be out guide to EBC and back (friendly and patient Sujan Khanal), and INT organised a taxi straight to our hotel (hotel also organised by INT). The following day we were met by the organiser (Paras Khanal) of the feel in person, who gave us a run down of itinerary and answered our many questions so patiently! On that note, Paras was very accomodating with creating an itinerary specifically tailored to our needs - this was a huge plus, as we didn't have the time to do the trek they initially recommended. paras was very willing to tailor a trek to suit some of our limitations. INT also made some of those admin and difficult parts of travelling in a new city MUCH easier - they organised all taxi transfers around the City, as we needed, the organised the down jackets, down sleeping bags and duffel bags that would be incredibly necessarily in the colder parts of the trek! They also facilitated some sight-seeing around Kathmandu and a provided 2 really enjoyable dinners - a welcome dinner on arrival to Kathmandu and farewell dinner after our trek. Trekking with our guide and 2 porters was a great experienxe in the mountains - we were looked after, entertained, informed and a bit spoilt at times (that extra cup of coffee or opportunity to have a quick and hot shower when you thought it wasn't possible!). This really made the (at times difficult) trek that much more enjoyable. We are very grateful to Sujan our guide and our 2 porters for all the effort they put in on this trek. They are incredibly tough and resilient to the Himalayan cold!It was a relief throughout the trek not to have to fuss with payment for every meal and every room etc - these expenses were all included in the total cost we paid INT - and it was well worth it! Very reasonable price and we more than got our money's worth. Definitely contact Paras and INT for quotes.The trekl itself is amazing but I figure you probably know that already and more likely, you're trying to decide which trekking company to choose. I would highly recommend Imperial Nepal Treks!
“Annapurna Circuit with” - December 2016
My family trekked the Annapurna Circuit with Imperial Nepal this past November. We were an unusual group in that we brought our 2 children with us, ages 10 and 12. It's not very common to see children trekking in the Himalayas, so I'm glad we were given a guide who had experience trekking with children in the past!
Dealing with the company before the trek was really easy and pleasant, and they were very accommodating with our needs. They answered emails in a timely manner and put me at ease before the trek. Once we arrived, we were greeted at the airport by our guide Mani and met Ram at the hotel. He sat down with us and told us what to expect, and arranged a tour of Kathmandu for us the next day.
The trek itself was incredible in so many ways. Gorgeous views, wonderful food, friendly locals and I cannot tell you how great it was to have a knowledgeable guide and porters to make sure we had everything taken care of. They dealt with our trekking permits, carried our stuff, arranged our hotels, took our food orders, and of course got us safely through the trek itself. All of us made it through to the pass, including my 10 year old daughter, because our guide listened to us, slowed down when needed, and was very encouraging and patient with our kids.
We did have to alter our itinerary along the way due to the fact that we took it a bit slower going up (we didn't want to have to get rescued off the mountain because we pushed our kids too hard in the higher elevation. Better safe than sorry!). Mani was very patient and helpful and adjusted our itinerary so that we could still get the most out of the days remaining.
We had an incredible experience in Nepal and truly felt at home there the entire time. Our guide and porters treated us as friends and took great care of us. We came home with a million beautiful photos and even more beautiful memories! Imperial Nepal is a wonderful trekking company and I highly recommend them if you want to have a great trekking experience in Nepal!

“The Adventure of a Lifetime” - December 2016
The Himalayas had always been this elusive dream. Something all three of us mates had always wanted to do but had thought the trip would cost far too much. Imperial Nepal completely changed that perception.
A very affordable price for the adventure of a lifetime. We decided to do the Annapurna circuit trek. A 16 day trek across diverse and breathtaking landscape. It was everything we had hoped for. November is the ideal time to trek as the skies are clear and weather is perfect for hiking.
With the leadership of Harri, our exceptional guide
And his two porters, we wanted for nothing on the trip. They went out of their way to make the experience as memorable as possible. Allowing us to take our time and take in the scenery, stopping at only the best tea houses with the best food!!
Accommodation on the trek was basic but more than comfortable after a long days trek. The food was amazing. And you won't get Deli belly of you have an experienced guide (they know what you can/can't eat on the trek).
All in all we spent 20 days in Nepal. 17 days trekking and 3 days in Kathmandu. The perfect combination. Would I go back? In a heartbeat.

“9 Day EBC Trek” - Devember 2016
In short, expectations well exceeded. From the logistical pre-trip planning to the very last day, everything was clearly organised. We went as a group of 4 on a short trek of 9 days with Mani as our amazing guide and Gopal and Kumar as our Porters. All of them were very friendly, helpful and patient. Given the short duration of our trip, one of us was not able to acclimatise to the altitude in time and had to be evacuated. Even the evacuation was professional dealt with from the prompt arrival of the helicopter and the leasing with the insurance companies. Please do not hesitate to engage Imperial Nepal Treks if you wish to embark on this amazing journey.Timothy S.Visited December 2016

“Honest, reliable, knowledgeable trekking company” - November 2016
This was my first trek and my son's second trek with Imperial Nepal. Paras organised the logistics (permits, flights, etc) and arranged for Dinesh to be our guide again. He is a wonderful guide - cheerful, encouraging, flexible, helpful and full of information. We walked Jiri to Namchee (well worth doing if you have the time) then on to two of the high passes with side trips to Everest and Ama Dablam basecamps, the Gokyo lakes, Chukkung Ri, Kala Pattar and Gokyo Ri, flying back from Lukla. A wonderful few weeks. I strongly recommend Imperial Nepal.

“Annapurna Circuit... trip of a lifetime!” - November 2016
A group of three of us South African guys in our mid 20's decided to venture to the far side of the world to trek through the Himalayas in Nepal in search of silence, cultural immersion, raw natural beauty and a face off against the elements. We booked our trek through Imperial Nepal and it was truly everything we hoped it would be and more!
The Annapurna Circuit is as scenically diverse as it is breathtakingly beautiful. Our incredibly hard working and fun loving guide Hari Amgain made the trip an absolute pleasure, organising the best places for us to eat and stay along the way and teaching us all about Nepal's cultural and natural heritage. His english is great and his sense of humour was much to be enjoyed. Even in the most difficult of circumstances - the high altitude parts of the trek and Nepal's difficult transport circumstances, he did his utmost to keep us as comfortable and well looked after as possible. Our two young porters were total rockstars, bearing the weight of our remaining baggage and always polite and sincere. These guys are real athletes... bearing the cold, heat and wind with heavy bags on their shoulders and always keeping up a positive attitude. We all felt like a real team... the "Super Team" as Hari often called us :)
If you are interested in trekking Nepal and discovering its wonders I would highly recommend Imperial Nepal. its a small company run by locals and they really do their utmost best to provide their clients with the best possible experience. It goes a long way to helping the people of Nepal by supporting tour guiding companies such as these and we are so glad we had them on this trip!

Somehow, I choose imperial nepal to arrange my trip to ebc and they do it very perfect. From the beginning when I arrive at kathmandu and to the end when I leave kathmandu. The services, the guide name Kumar, and the porter name Aisu. 2 of them very helpful when trekking to ebc. No doubt about it. Mr. Ram arrange everything and satisfied me. I think when I need to do trekking again, I will choose Imperial Nepal for that.
“Fantastic Vacation! Can't wait to return!” - November 2016
My group completed the Annapurna circuit (21 days) in November with Imperial Nepal treks. Their communication stood out from the very first email when we initially enquired about our vacation. Our guide and porters did a wonderful job meeting our needs and making sure we were happy, healthy and able to take in the mesmerizing views along our journey. Our guide K.C really paid attention to the details teaching us about the numerous peaks, making sure that the food tasted good and warm at night. K.C was also very flexible, whether it was for weather, being tired/ill or if we wanted to walk further, it was all up to us. His knowledge of circuit was very valuable. Our vacation was truly memorable from the welcoming dinner to the farewell. We can't wait to return for another great trip! Highly recommended!

“best trekking company” - November 2016
Me and my friend did the Annapurna base camp trek with our guide babu, he was the best guide we could have asked for, very flexible and did what ever we wanted to do, he took us to the best spots and showed us the real nepal, absolutely no complaints and would highly recommend him to anyone wanted to have the best time in nepal
Preety much everything you expect from this type of company”
To say in a few word, very good service overall. Everything as planned from day one, so can´t complain there. These guys are very flexible, and for me that's very good cause I'm not always planning with a lot of time. I did EBC Trek with them.I arrived to Nepal and they picked me up from the airport, had a nice welcome dinner and the next day flew to Lukla. The guide and the porters were very good, always willing to help and very attentive with bags, food or anything you needed. One very nice detail was that every evening we had fresh fruit for dessert which they carried all the way from Kathmandu! Thanks for that!The second detail I really liked, and this talk about theri willingness to help you, was that after the trek I had extra time, so the arrange everything for me to go to Pokhara and when I came back to Kathmandu they drove me back to the airport.Only one minor complain, which will help both the company, I'm talking of you Paras! :), and people who will want to book. Before booking, every email I send them was answer inmediately, really good service. Onced I booked, responses stopped coming. They do read your email, the best example was that they booked me the bus tickets to Pokhara (again, thanks for that), which were waiting for me in the hotel, but I didnt find out till I got there, which I consider very annoying.Thanks for everything. Keep up the good work.(Solo traveller from Argentina)
“This is the company for trekking in Nepal!”-November 2016
Imperial supplied us with a wonderful trekking experience in the Manasalu region. The owner Ram personally greeted us when we arrived at the hotel in Kathmandu he arranged for us as part of the package. It was a comfortable hotel with a lovely garden near the Thamal area. The night before we set off for our trrk Ram and his assistant manager Pharish took us and two other customers out for a delicious Nepali dinner, complete with a traditional dancing performance, and we had a great time. The Manaslu trek was superb and our guide Mani was fantastic; he has a great sense of humor and told us lots about the people, fauna and majestic mountains throughout the trek. We would highly recommend Imperial Treks and were very happy with their pricing and service.
“Three Passes trek adventure - amazing experience!”
My boyfriend and myself completed Three Passes trek in October'16. Everything was organised flawlessly right from the start. The hotel in Kathmandu was lovely and we really enjoyed welcome dinner in the traditional Nepalese restaurant we were taken to by company manager, Paras. Also loved the day tour around Kathmandu Valley. On the trek we were looked after our guide Hari and our porter, Rai. Both couldn't do enough for us. Hari would always get us the best rooms available in a tea house and made sure we have everything we need, offering extra blankets etc. We would discuss our trekking plans daily and he was very flexible, offering advice on what's best and always accommodated our request (weather wasn't spoiling us in the first week). Very friendly, cheerful, polite and always had our best interest at heart. We had so much fun! We didn't have to worry about anything and could just enjoy amazing Himalayan scenery and Hari would tell us more about the culture and the mountains. I should also mention that even before we landed in Nepal, Paras would always respond to the multitude of questions I had via email and was extremely helpful. We are thinking of going back to Nepal to do some more challenging climbs and we will definitely be using Imperial again. They're very reliable and I'm sure we will be in good hands. We're very grateful to Paras for making sure this was an unforgettable experience for us and we're looking forward to another adventure with Imperial Nepal Treks!

“Stupendous EBC Trek - 13 days”
The whole experience dealing with Imperial trek was amazing, be it before, during and after the trek. We had a lot of questions before booking the package and all the questions were answered patiently and professionally by Ram thru email's and mobile apps. Ram and Paras were very honest and professional .We were very happy with their assignment of HARI as our guide.HARI was excellent, he was very informative, helpful and caring throughout our hike.His selection of Tea houses during our hike is good. HARI planned the Tea house stop overs very well. The Porters (Bishan & Koirala) were also excellent like the HARI, they were very helpful through out the trek. We will recommend Imperial Nepal Treks and their team (RAM, PARAS & HARI) to all.
“Excellent 13D EBC Trek”
We were taken care of through out our trip by our guide, Hari, and our porters were really efficient. The described items and services in the itinerary exceeded expectations and we were really pleased. Food and lodging at tea houses were pleasant. It was a wonderful expedition and we would definitely consider Imperial Nepal Treks for a subsequent expedition.
“3 high passes from Jiri”
Trek in total 27 days out of which 24 of walking. Excellent trek, distance 230 km, 14,5 km uphill/downhill - phisically very demanding. First part Jiri-Paiya highly recommended for those who want to see real life and landscape in Nepal, with very few trekkers doing the same trek, which helps to know each other, through the villages, fields, forests of rhododentrons (imagine how it should look like in spring while blooming ...), not commercially spoiled, for lodgekeepers you are rather a guest than a client. Joining the stream of trekkers after Lukla was quite disapointing experience after first 6 days ...
Our trek was organised very well - everything according to what was agreed and declaired by the Agency. Many many thanks to Paras who organised everything for us perfectly!

Our trip to Nepal in September 2016 was absolutely amazing!! My husband spoke to Paras at Imperial Nepal Trekking. He was very professional and organized everything for us.Hiking in the Himalayas was so beautiful, and we felt very safe knowing that we were with a first class operation.Sujan was our guide. He was always calm, helpful, caring and so nice. He also liked playing cards with us in the evening.There were six of us in the group climbing to EBC. I was having trouble keeping up with the other climbers. However, I was never alone. Sujan would stay with me or the assistant guide named Narayan who was wonderful as well. We highly recommend Imperial Nepal Trekking. They are the best!! We hope to climb Annapurna in the near future, and we look forward to seeing our team again!!

“Annapurna Circuit Trek - Thanks IN, for making it possible”-
Completed the 19-day trek on Annapurna Circuit Trek two weeks' ago with guide and porter from Imperial Nepal. Really appreciated your meticulous planning and communication before I arrived in Nepal, and accommodated my dietary requirements throughout. The guide and porter observed safety and stayed close to me throughout the trek. They were patient and supportive as my muscles warmed up in the initial days of the trek. When we crossed Thorung La Pass at 5,400m which was no mean feat, they stayed very close on the ascent, were very encouraging and took precautions like leaving early so that we had ample time to cross the pass in calm weather conditions. Recommend Imperial Nepal for solo traveller like myself or group travellers. Kudos to the team and thanks for leaving me with wonderful memories!

“Everest Base Camp Trek”-October 2016
We chose Imperial treks for our EBC trek. It was a twelve day trek from Lukla to EBC return, though we did spend a couple of extra days in Lukla for weather. So if you are considering this trek ensure you have a few extra days up your sleeve for poor flying conditions to and from Lukla.We did find all the Staff professional, helpful, patient and very informative. Our group found it a great experience and we would highly recommend these guys to anyone that's considering the EBC trek. We would also like to commend Paras and Babu again for their excellent service.
“Fantastic trek through the Himalayas”-October 201
Our trek tour was over a week and we managed to see beautiful views throughout our hikes. If you're new to hiking in the Himalayas then I highly recommend going with Imperial Nepal Treks as you feel safe in their hands, especially due to the altitude its a great way to travel. Our trek was moderately hard and I believe anyone can do this trek as you followed paths the whole time. Ask your trek guide about the hot springs and order the Dhal Bhat to enjoy an authentic Nepalese meal!
“ ABC, a memorable trek”- October 2016
I was supposed to to EBC last year but last min mother nature threw in a quake and I could not do it. Ram was very kind to allow me reuse the advance I had paid and this year I went to do EBC. But this time bad weather prevented any flights to EBC so thanks to Ram and Mani last min we changed it to ABC. ABC was just amazing out of the world experience for me which was enhanced by my capable compatriots Mani and Sudeep, Infact I have 2 daughters one Mani's age and another Sudeep's age. So perfectly fit in as a family and they took good care of the old man that is me :-). As all old cranky codgers I took my tile to get ready, walked slowly and complained often about my gas problem, prostrate, weak knees .. endless but poor Mani took it all and kept me going. I really appreciate his patience. What I most liked about him was he was always right behind me to help me when I lost my footing but he never advised me how to hike, That is the best part so he was never a nag but a patient guide. Sudeep the kid was amazingly strong and I have promised him next time I shall not bring half of my wardrobe :-). We danced, palyed cards and exchanged philosophical musings all the 10 days. I miss Annapurna my compatriots Mani, Sudeep and ofcourse their chief Ram,
“EBC 9 Day Trek - Highly Recomended”- October 2016
I did an Everest BC Trek with Imperial Nepal in Mid August with Imperial Nepal Treks and was very happy with the level of service and guidance provided. The tour guide Dinesh and the porter Lakpa were both very professional, helpful and friendly. if you are reasonably fit, the 9 day trek is fantastic. if you prefer to have a few extra rest and acclimatization days then go for a 12-18 day trek.
"Great track through Annapurna region”-October 2016
We had a great 8 day track in the Annapurna region. We also was some days in the Chitwan National Park. Everything was well organized by Imerpial Nepal Private Tours. It was perfect from the first till the last day. The perfect thing for us was, that it was possible to get an indviduel planed Tour. If we will come back to Nepal, we will definitly plan our stay with Imperial Nepal Private Day Tours again.
“Ask For Babu!”- September 2016

A very authentic Nepalese experience, challenging and rewarding trek. The best part was making friends with Dinesh! He was a great match for me and my young 20's friends. We played cards, shared meals and he guided us safely to the top of Poon Hill. Even among the monsoon Dinesh and Hari were there to snag the leeches off of our shoes ! Paras greeted us and kindly escorted us around Kathmandu, giving us shopping and eating advice. The food was delicious and authentic, the sites were breathtaking. We especially enjoyed the added white water rafting day that we opted for. Would not recommend sleeping at the river resort. Overall, very enjoyable, met the greatest people, worth every penny.

Annapurna Circuit Honeymoon - June 2016
We booked 14-days Annapurna circuit with Imperial Nepal as our honeymoon trip. As the trip was very affordable we haven't expected much but we were pleasantly surprised with level of service which is worth at least double the money. Company was very professional in all arrangements and solved all obstacles which appeared including some which were our fault. Manager of the company Ram met us in Kathmandu hotel at the beginning of the trip and explained all the details. Before we even came to Nepal he patiently responded all my e-mails about the equipment to take, tips to porters etc. Guide Khim (Keshi) was the most experienced guide I ever had on all my trekking tours as he had 15 year of experience guiding in Himalayas. Both him and porter were treating us during the whole trip to make us feel special and we really felt like on honeymoon trip. Great experience all together and I wouldn't change a thing. Warmly recommend this company for trekking trips in Nepal.

12-Day Annapurna Base Camp Trek; Best value and great experience! - June 2016
We had an amazing time trekking to ABC! We booked with Ram as he had offered us the best value. Itineraries can be customized with a lot of flexibility; we had ours done to include paragliding and flying (instead of bus) to and from Pokhara. Everything was smooth and well organised from the minute we arrived at Kathmandu Airport till we departed. The lodges/tea houses along our trek were decent and clean, and well above our expectation of accommodation in the outdoors. We ate like kings everyday, all lodges serve typically the same variety but really large portions. We even had a fruit platter after each day's dinner which was contributed by our porters carrying the fruits up themselves the strenuous ABC trek!Our experienced guide, Mani, though a little shy, will not hesitate to share his knowledge during our daily conversations. He was attentive and along with the porters, took very good care of us down to the smallest details during our trek.Nepal is a very beautiful country with breathtaking views of the Himalayas especially nearing the base camp. We had an incredible trekking experience and can't wait to be back.

Everest Base Camp Trek with Imperial Nepal - June 2016
It's been a great experience trekking Himalayas in May 2016 with the precious help of Hari -the guide from Imperial Nepal Treks.From the beginning Ram answered in time at all my e-mail requests .Imperial Nepal Treks they have very competitive prices.Just ask for! Due to the lack of time I choose 9 days trek ,and I wasn't disappointed at all .Hari made good choices for my meals according to altitude ,making sure that I am feeling well on everyday hike.Overall I was fully satisfied with this company and make sure you ask Hari to be your guide!Thank you Ram and Imperial Nepal Treks to make my dream come true!!
Everest Base Camp Trek - May 2016
We booked with Imperial Nepal about three weeks before travelling and so we were a bit tight on time. However, Imperial (I was dealing with Paras) were really efficient replying to us and dealing with all of our queries. Our schedule was also tight but Paras advised us on what was do-able and sent us a clear and tailored itinerary. The service we received was top class. We were collected from the airport (by Suzjan, our guide) on arrival, brought to our hotel which was a nice standard and given a run through of our confirmed itinerary. We set off the next morning on our trip, which was truly an unreal experience. The scenery was breathtaking. We were lucky as we had sunshine and clear skies for most of the trip. However it was still really really cold at night, so bring lots of warm layers!!! The food and accommodation were fine. You received plenty of food at each meal so there was no real need to bring extra snacks etc. Suzjan, our guide, was great, he was happy to chat away or equally happy just to walk in silence and enjoy the scenery. I liked him because he didn't molly-coddle us and let us feel independent despite being on a guided tour. Harrie our porter was also really nice and friendly and careful with our bags. Overall we had an excellent experience and I would highly recommend Imperial Nepal. Thanks Paras, Suzjan and Harrie.
Fantastic Annaourna Circuit Trek - May 2016
It was a mere coincident that I met the Imperial Nepal and their guide, Hari, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience! At first I hired a guy recommended by some internet users on email and when I arrived, the guy said he were not able to go with me and instead he had some friend for me. I rejected and then decided to go on my Trek alone. On the way to the starting point, I met Hari who was hired by a German couple. He said "Would you come with me? I can also support you on the way!" All along he didn't ask me for any remuneration but he literally GUIDED us with his experience and networks with the locals on the way. He is communicable with English, humorous and treat you wholeheartedly to make sure you and your belongings (even a pole) are safe. Skills-wise, he is a "mountain tiger" which explains all. Overall, he made my trek safe, fun and made me fall in love with Nepal.
Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days - May 2016
We had not much expectations about the trek, we were planing it low budget so we pick Imperial as for the value was looking the best option. Our surprise was that the quality it´s way beyond expectations. We were picked up at the airport and taken to the hotel in Thamel (Central Kathmandu, where everything happends), and the Hotel was waaaaaaay better than we were expecting. We were recived by Ram, the owner who gave us a nice breafing about the trip. The next day we went on a city tour to the main interesting places in Kathmandu with a private guide. Then we were introduced to our guide Mani. He is a legend! On the trek everithing was already arranged, Mani took great care of us, being concern about our health every minute, about our fitness, if we needed water, rest or whatever. The tea houses on the way were really good, even with hot shower in some of them (truly a luxury on the trek). Mani also was telling us the history of some of the mountains and places.Also we had a wellcome and farewell diner included, wich was probably two of the best meals we had in our month in Nepal. Also Ram helped us to book some other activities such rafting and canyioning.So yes, great company, great guides. 200% recomended.
Amazing Trip To Annaurna - May 2016
Our trip to Nepal will be something my girlfriend and I will remember for the rest of our lives, and a big part of this was thanks to the guys at Imperial Nepal Treks and the jewel in their crown, our guide Hari.Despite my reservations about booking with the first people we talked to about visiting Annapurna base camp, it was the best decision we made. Ram and Parash managed to sort everything out for us, from quite literally the last seats on a coach to Pokhara (which were fully booked by people returning home from Dashain, the biggest festival of the year for Nepal) our accommodation when we got there, our amazing guide and everything in between.The thing that really made it for us was having Hari as our guide. Hari will work tirelessly to make sure everything is right for you: booking forward whilst walking to get you a room in teahouses on the trek (a difficult task during high season); bringing you fresh fruit to eat (he even insisted on climbing a tree to get us some limes to try); to simply being the best guide to this incredible country and the kind, beautiful people that live there. If you only need one reason to use Imperial Nepal as the company to organise your trek for you, then Hari is it.Go visit Nepal, if you love mountains as much as I do you’ll never forget it and Imperial Nepal Treks are the guys to show you what I mean.
This is one of the most enjoyable life time experience. Thank you for Imperial for making my journey to EBC such wonderful experience.

High Passes Trek - April 2016
We had all the inhibitions of choosing a local Nepali trekking company for our Everest high passes trip in the start. And Imperial Nepal was way beyond our expectations. We received a warm welcome in Kathmandu by Ram who also went through in great detail about each day in our trip and what to expect. Once in Lukla we were met by two porters who were super friendly and always tried to keep us at ease even with their limited English conversing skills. They were a great help on the days we had to cross the high passes. We could go to all the places we planned like Gokyo lake, Kalapathar, Cho La pass, EBC. We had a friendly guide who knew about the region very well and took us to many local places to sample authentic Nepali food. We couldn't have asked for a better first introduction to Himalayas thanks to Imperial Nepal and their team.
Budget Annapurna Base Camp Trek - April 2016
I booked my trek through their website. They took care of everything from picking me up at the Kathmandu airport to dropping me off at the end of my trip. Hotels were booked and bus tickets arranged. My guide took care of everything during the trek, except for the clouds at ABC! He managed rooms and meals along the way, and arranged for a fruit plate after each meal. The only thing I could have asked for was more time to take a longer trek. The price was extremely reasonable. I highly recommend using Imperial Nepal Trekking if you are in Nepal.

Brilliant trip with ad Brilliant Company - April 2016
After much research my wife and I found Imperial Nepal to be the best value on the market. The service they offered was fantastic, from the very first day of our EBC trek, to the last. Paras replied to our every query instantly and Sujan was an excellent guide. If I was lucky enough to go back to Nepal, I wouldn't even consider another agency.
Everest Resion Trek and NepalkHoliday - March 2016
I booked a trek through Paras with Imperial Trek Nepal over the internet to trek in the Everest region. They were a great choice as they met us at the airport and organised everything including our accommodation, hire stuff and a day tour around Kathmandu. Hari our guide was fantastic, a lot of fun and looked after us very well in the mountains. On our return to Kathmandu Paras also organised a trip for us to the Royal Chitwan National Park and Pokhara. I'd highly recommend Imperial Trek and you won't go wrong with Hari as your guide.

Tailored trek of Everest region - March 2016
I organised a trek via Imperial Nepal when I was Kathmandu. After agreeing everything I wanted from a trek, they quickly began getting everything ready, and it was under 24 hours before we set off.
I wanted to hike to Everest Region from Jiri, which is a 7-8 day walk, and continue up to Gokyo Ri rather than EBC. I don't think this is a particularly common route, but everything was organised perfectly. My guide, Dinesh, was very knowledgeable, and was a lot of fun to hang around in the evenings.
The actual trek was superb, a combination of the fantastic weather and incredible views. I am sure that I would have enjoyed this has I taken on the responsibility of doing it all myself, but it was nice to be able to focus entirely on having fun while Imperial dealt with the logistics.

Very well organised and good value - March 2016
I organised my trek through imperial nepal from the uk. I can say that I'm very glad I did. I was met at the airport in Kathmandu and brought to a good hotel in Thamel by private car. I was met by Ram at the hotel who explained the trip in detail to me and what the plan was for the next few weeks. Ram even took me to get a simcard In my phone which cost in total npr 1700 for 3gb of data which kept me in contact with home for all of my time in nepal. I stayed in the best rooms in Kathmandu and Pockara. Before the trek I met Sujan my guide before the trek we had dinner in Kathmandu to enjoy some Nepali food and traditional dancing we also had time to discuss the trek. I went to ABC I had Sujan as my guide and a porter in adition. I was served fresh fruit every day all meals and coffee tea was paid for I could choose anything from the menus on the treks I was served by Sujan very, very well. I chose to drive back to kathmandu by private car which was also very good after the trek. I can not say enough good things. Everything was well organised and paid for there were no hidden charges. Ram is very good at organising custom trips. Sujan my guide was top class my porter was strong and pleasant. I was made to feel special by imperial nepal and they made my trip to Nepal organised and structured but with the ability to adapt and do other things when I wanted. I would definitely recommend this company to my friends and family.
“Adventure Holiday in Nepal-February 2016
This is a great choice for time-limited people who want to see a lot of Nepal in a short time. Very easy to do extra or change things (we opted out of riding on elephants in Chitwan due to environmental concerns, and very easily swapped onto a jeep safari and canoe ride instead), canyoning is included but you can add a bungee jump (it's very cheap compared to aussie prices!) and although the itinerary takes you to Poon Hill for sunrise, you can also climb up the night before for sunset if you're feeling really energetic and want to see the view twice!Sujan our guide was friendly and patient, highly recommend.This is an easy trek for experienced hikers but there is not much flat terrain - it is up and down most of the 6 day trek, but totally doable for people of average fitness.We went just before the start of 'peak season' so most of our hotels were quiet, and they were great. Ram (the trek coordinator i think?) was careful to remind us that the hotels on the trek were not the same standard as in the cities, but we had no problem with any of them. Clean and private, and most of them had private bathrooms too! Highly recommend buying toilet paper or tissues before the trek and carry it everywhere! Always keep some tissues in your pocket just in case - no bathrooms will supply them.One other thing I will mention is that tipping is accepted and expected. As Australians we don't have much experience with this, but be aware before you go somewhere so you can keep some money on you for guides and porters.Food was delicious everywhere but you will find it difficult to get an authentic Nepalese meal! Most dishes will come out without any chilli (even the curries!) so ask for spice if you want it (especially on your trek!) Dahl Bhat is available everywhere and you should definitely try it a few times. It will usually be the provided meal if your itinerary says "meal included".

Everest Base Camp Trek - January 2016
My experience with Imperial Nepal was just excellent.The people were extremely helpful in every way possible - from organising the tour to assisting with buying/renting the right trekking gear. My trip couldn't have been better.If you book with Imperial Nepal make sure you'll ask for Harri as your guide - he's the best. Harri makes sure you're alright all the time and he makes sure you've got the best time. He's choosing great teahouses with the best rooms within for you, he gives tipps for what better not to eat, makes sure you're healthy.What I really enjoyed was Harri teaching me some words of the Nepali language. He taught us the Nepali game and we taught him how to play UNO - you've never seen a guy as happy as him while playing cards. To make a long story short; he's the best guide and as a trip depends a lot on you're guide as well it's the best decision to choose Harri.Thanks Imperial Nepal for this unforgettable trip!

My friend Robert and I traveled through Nepal for one month. Right after arriving at our hotel in Kathmandu we arranged our two-week during trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar, organized by Imperial Nepal Treks. After having checked our backpacks we flew to Lukla airport where our guide, Hari, awaited us. I would definitely ask for Hari since he really enriched our trekking experience: he finds the best places for food/accommodation and takes really good care of you! He and the tour operator were also very flexible when we wanted to change something in the itinerary during our trek. In other words, it was a great experience!

4 Days Poonhill Circuit Trek - January 2016
We had the best time on our visit to Annapurna. Sujan our guide became our friend over the 4 days. He was endlessly patient (particularly when I was very slow at some of the up hill sections!) and very knowledgable about the area. He looked after us and made sure our experience was the best it could be. We would very much recommend Imperial Nepal Treks to anyone wishing to experience the Annapurna regionMany thanks againMiranda and Max Weaver
Awesome Everest Base Camp - December 2015
I travelled to Nepal and trekked Everest base camp a week ago in a group of 3. This was an amazing trek. Our guide, Mani were absolutely incredible, informative and safety conscious. Our porters, Tehs and Gopal were amazing, fun to be with and hard working. They take care of us during the hike and make sure all of us are in good condition and treated us like a family. Tea house and food served are clean along the trek. We enjoyed each other accompany and manage to complete the trek safely. I would do this hike again in an instant and only wish we'd had more time togetherBooking with Imperial was easy and efficient. They providing us with all the information needed. The guys on the ground/in the office are also friendly and helpful. Overall we are very satisfied and happy with Imperial! Do visit Nepal!
Amazing Trek Awesome Service November 2015
My partner and I have just recently moved to Nepal and decided a good first introduction to the country might be hiking the Annapurna Circuit.
We booked through Imperial Nepal Treks online from New Zealand and have not regretted that decision once.
The package was hard to fault. Great value for money (esp. in the wake of the earthquake and in the middle of a fuel crisis!), great service from all involved and a great itinerary.
Our guide on the trek Dinesh and our porter, Sudip were great! Helpful, accommodating, relaxed and willing to work around any issue that came up.
It was just myself, my partner Andrew and Dinesh and Sudip and so we felt like close friends by the end of our 17 days together. Jokes and long conversations about our respective lives were really lovely additions to the astoundingly beautiful scenery and hospitality of the locals.
Added on to the trek is a sightseeing day in KTM - this is also a great day where we were guided to many fascinating places we would never have discovered on our own. It was a lovely introduction we didn't expect. With welcome and farewell dinners in KTM and all accommodation and meals organised on the trek we were simply at leisure.
Thanks Imperial Treks Nepal - a great experience.

Great Annapuarna Experience - November 2015
The two of us decided to get Guide and Porter and Imperial Treks seemed legit. Right from the get go they kept us informed about payment, itinerary, what to expect etc... We are both experienced in the outdoors and had never thought about being guided or having our things carried but our Guide Denish and Porter Sudip soon put our worries to rest! They were both great guys and we had a lot of fun, learned a lot of interesting things about the areas we were travelling through and got the down low on cool places to see and must do's. It turned out to be a really unique and fun 21 day circuit of the Annapurna Ranges. I would recommend Imperial Treks to anyone but more importantly Denish and Sudip for their expertise, patience, un-faltering senses of humour and all around positive outlook on their country and beautiful backcountry. Thanks Boys! Namaste.
Everest Base Camp Trek - October 2015
When deciding on a company to take us to Everest Base Camp we definitely wanted a Nepalese company, and we're so happy that we chose Imperial! Right from the beginning we were welcomed and nothing was too much of an issue. We were taken for a lovely welcome dinner, saw the main tourist sights of Kathmandu and then headed up to Lukla. We had KC as a guide, who always asked us how we were to make sure we were not affected by altitude sickness, ensured we had everything we needed (good food, water and accommodation) and had a great sense of humour too! Our porters, Kumar and Dinesh, were great too! We'd highly recommend visiting the Himalayas, as the scenery is spectacular, it's an incredible experience, and the people are very friendly. Back in Kathmandu after the trek we had a great farewell dinner. Paras and Ram were great, and nothing was too much to ask. I would (and have) recommend(ed) this company to others looking to visit Nepal!

ABC 14 Days
My son and I trekked to ABC in October. Imperial Nepal is a local Nepalese company and we were glad to support the locals with our business. Imperial Nepal were very friendly and bent over backwards to ensure we were happy with our experience and had everything we needed. The guide was very friendly and informative and did everything he could to ensure we were more than satisfied with his service.We were in Nepal when problems arose that were out of the control of the tour company. It was reassuring to have the professional experience and the local knowledge of our tour guide and Imperial Nepal Treks to smooth out any problems and ensure we didn't have to worry about overcoming such problems.Yes, it is possible to trek ABC on your own. However, you would miss out on a great deal of interesting information and history by doing it without a local guide. ..... a little like walking around the Louvre in Paris without a guide to tell you about the works of art. The guide is also useful in communicating for you with the locals if required and ensuring accommodation in busy times when beds may be in short supply.We found the scenery spectacular and the service provided by Imperial Nepal to be spectacular also. I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone interested in doing any trek in Nepal to do it with Imperial Nepal. They are committed to customer satisfaction and will leave you with an experience to remember fondly.

Awesome Everest Base Camp Trek - November 2015
I rarely write reviews but I feel that Imperial travel more than deserve the time that it will take me to write this. I travelled to Nepal and trekked Everest base camp as a single female traveller and the whole team at Imperial travel made me feel utterly welcome, safe, looked after and I would even go as far as to say, a part of the family. There were meant to be 3 other people joining me on the trek but due to the fuel strikes, they all cancelled. Despite it being expensive for Imperial travel to take me trekking alone, they did not try to charge me any kind of single supplement and despite me now having a room to myself instead of sharing with someone else, they, at no stage, skimped on the rooms. In fact, I noticed that I had much better rooms than many other people that I met on the trek who were with other companies, often with my own bathroom. Both my guide, Sujan, and my porter were absolutely incredible. They really looked after me/made me feel very comfortable and were both always so happy. I really enjoyed both of their company. The guys on the ground/in the office really looked after me in Kathmandu also. They helped me to arrange many things without profit to themselves. I found them to be incredibly fair, honest and genuine business men. Unfortunately there are less people travelling to Nepal now due to the earthquake and fuel strikes but I was not affected by either. The Nepalese are incredible people and Nepal is a great country - I thoroughly recommend both Nepal and Everest base camp trek to everyone...

Trekking The Annapurna Circuit - August 21
Did this a year ago in June 2014 but kept forgetting to leave a review!
Initial plans of trekking without a guide changed when the staff of Blue Horizon Hotel introduced this company to us. We decided to go for it and boy, are we glad we did! I would imagine the trek being more tedious and not as smooth without our awesome and friendly guide, Bhagawat Mani Lamichhane. An expert on the trail, you can definitely count on him to show you around. He got us nice teahouses to stay at, made sure we stayed safe, and encouraged me to go on when I really felt like giving up on the first few days. Plus he's a pretty good photographer ;) Also, we caught some pretty nice views of the Annapurnas too despite it being summer.
If you haven't done the trek yet, you really should. The unspoiled nature, amazing scenery, inspiration all around, the experience itself is worth the go.

I did the Annapurna circuit... was an amazing experience, even in the middle of winter. It was most likely harder than most people would experience but i was motivated enough to get amongst it. We decided to do it with a guide, using Bhagawat Mani Lamichane to get us safely to the other side even when conditions became particularly tough. You can look him up on facebook... Great banter. Gotta love that trek

My weekend in Nepal - August 11
I had a tremendous amount of fun during a trip I had not even planned or prepared for. I was lucky enough to bump into an individual named Paras Khanal who made a four day plan in which I visited Pokara and Kathmandu's most beautiful and exotic tourist areas. I was taken care of from beginning to end from hotel expenses to the plane to Pokara and the Bus back, to the cab rides here and there.

Trek to Everest Base Camp - August 2015
Dear Fellow Trekkers,August 2013, I flew to Kathmandu with a limited time schedule of 20 days and a lot of ideas of what I want to do, the initial plan was to go on Annapurna Circuit trek. At the hotel Blue Horizon I was staying - I was lucky to come across Mr. Paras Khanal, who was a fantastic help to tailor-cut the right trek for me. Together we reviewed different options and upon his advice, encouragement, and with his great patience to answer all my questions, I finally decided to go for Everest Base Camp Trek. It proved to be the right choice and a great experience!! All prior to the trek was taken care of to the last detail: shopping for missing equipment, advise on medications, taking care of internal flights, trek permits, etc. - basically I did not need to worry about anything. Mr. Khanal found me a very respectful guide, who helped with part of my luggage and took good care of me throughout the whole trek, always checking if I am ok or might need anything, until back in Kathmandu. I definitely recommend Mr. Khanal as your future trek-manager - he is very professional and reliable. I am sure he will take good care of you and find the right trek-solution to suit your needs. BIG THANKS!

We were incredibly fortunate to come across Imperial Nepal, they provided a well-organized stress free booking experience. Hari was the best guide we could have asked for. He constantly goes the extra mile to ensure you are having a fantastic time. He is happy, friendly and has a great sense of humour, we would highly recommend him and imperial nepal to all our friends and family. Overall an incredible and unforgettable adventure made all the better and more memorable by the most amazing guide. Thank you Hari

Annapurna Circuit with Imperials is a must do trek.
Hari is a very considerate guide who always put you in his first priority. He got a sense of nepali humor and would share his experience, language with you. He knew all sort of things including what to eat, where to stay, how long to reach and how to get there by shortcut...all you need to know.
My first trekking experience was therefore perfect I would say.

We had a really great experience booking through Imperial. It was easy and stress free. Ask for Hari as a guide, he was friendly and funny and made our experience fun. Every night after dinner he was the only guide who provided his trekkers with a delicious fruit platter. He carries the fruit up the mountain just for us. Occasionally Hari would teach us a few Nepali words. We enjoyed our trek from start to finish :)Aaron B, Australia

Everest Base Camp Trek - January 26, 2015
When we arrived in the Kathmandu we stayed at Hotel Blue Horizon which was a nice Hotel. Via the hotel manager we've arranged a trek to Everest Basecamp. We were very happy about the organisation as it was on a very short notice. The trek itself was absolutely beautiful and the stunning mountain views surprises time after time. If you book with this company make sure you ask for Hari as he was our guide and he truly made a big difference in the experience. We were very good taken care of during the trek, Hari arranged everything from good lodges and nice food to a lot of extra information about the region and the people of Nepal.

Didn't book anything before we got to Nepal but we ended up staying at the Blue Horizon Hotel in Kathmandu in the Thamel district. The staff were very friendly and offered to help organise a trek to the Langtang Valley. They organised a guide and a porter who were both very good and very friendly (good sense of humour too!). The whole trek was super organised and was pretty flexible in terms of extra day trips and different routes. When we visit Nepal in the future we will definitely book through imperial tours again. *Note: If going trekking, bring a pack of cards and learns some cool Nepalese card games and card tricks.
Everest 3 High Passes Trek was just Awesome - July 2014
Einsteinean guides, Herculean porters, is this Nepal? Shimmering rivers, iconic peaks, barren glaciers and lush valleys, stoic lodges, tranquil monasteries, exciting bridges, and ancient prayer stones, is this what everyone experiences when visiting this cultural landmark?
Imperial treks and expeditions provided an experience that left me awestruck by the beauty that lies within the hallowed Himalayas of Nepal. From the moment we set foot on the first mountain trail, I knew we were trekking in style. The first few days were tough, but, what is a reward without the hard work? What is the warm mint tea without the cold, high pass? What is the staple DalBhat with its unflinchingly outstanding curry, without the glorious 1000 meter climb? What are the welcoming Nepali smiles, the manicured bed spreads, the skillful cooking, the beautifully rare snickers and cokes, the taken for granted internet signal without the legendary one-on-one battle between you and nature at its most raw and powerful? While the trekking provided the physical challenge that creature comforts deny, Imperial Trekking provided the pillow to lay my head on at the end of the day, the down blankets under which I kept warm. From the thin air on the Renjo La Pass to the damp heat of the Sagarmatha valleys, I look in the gorgeous landscapes without worry knowing that my every need was taken care of, that every hunger pang was abolished with sweet coconut cookies and salty dry noodles that every fork in the road was illuminated with a green light, that every plant was described, every peak named, every concern comforted, any questions answered!No matter how hard we pressed, we were faithfully followed by our porters with our heavy packs on their backs and faithfully directed by our encyclopedic guide. I would absolutely trek with Imperial again, for the mountains come standard for everyone but the incredibly personal trekking experience was catered impeccably. It was with a heavy heart and aching legs that we parted with our new brothers, and it is with heated anticipation that I await my next visit to the truly unique destination of Nepal.
Everest 3 High Passes Trek, a must do trek with INT - July 2014
The three passes, EBC and Kalapatthar trek was such a memorable experience for our group. The staffs were all very professional including Mr. Parash who made the trip details very clear and understandable. The bus ride to Jiri as the public bus was a bit crammed and felt quite dangerous so I would recommend a jeep for transport. Our guide Navaraj was beyond what we expected as we travelled with thim along the trail he became like a brother to us. He was always making sure we were comfortable and taken care of in every way. For instance on the way up to Chola Pass, it was far below freezing and the gloves brought were not warm enough. My hands were freezing and I could not warm them up. So, Nava took his gloves off, helped warm up my fingers and gave me his warm gloves to use. It's things like that, that makes you really trust in a guide that he wants to make sure you are happy and safe.
The porters were incredible as well. Samdi and Amrit were always helping us move our bags and bring us food to our tables. Another thing that I really enjoyed about the trek was that the porters actually carried a box of fruits the entire time and served us apples, oranges and pomegranate every dinner. The guide and porters couldn’t have done a better job and when I come back to Nepal, I will for sure request the same people to come along for the journey. Thank you again to Parash, Navaraj, Samdi and Amrit. You made my trip an everlasting journey.
Jiri-Namche-Renjo La-Cho La-EBC-Kala Patthar-Lukla - July 2014
Overall the experience I had with Imperial Treks was excellent from start to finish. When we arrived at the hotel, we met with Parash and discussed the details of our planned trek. He was very knowledgeable and promptly organized everything so we could depart. We were able to meet the guide and porters at the hotel beforehand which added to our comfort level. Nava, the guide was outstanding. His English is very good and he was able to teach us a lot about local culture, plants, wildlife and especially mountains.
The porters, Samdi and Amrit were also a pleasure to have along. We travelled quite quickly and they were always right behind us.
These three provided excellent service at all the tea houses and were always making sure we were safe and comfortable. They were also a lot of fun to be around which is important when spend that much time together. By the end of the trek, we were one big family.
We ended up returning to Kathmandu a couple days early because we decided to skip the Renjo La as we didn’t posses the energy and already experienced breathtaking views. Our guide and porters were completely accommodating and left the decision completely up to us. Upon returning early, we were treated to free accommodations and a very nice dinner to make up for the days we chose to skip. This was a nice gesture and shows the company cares a lot about customer satisfaction.
Overall, I couldn’t be more happy with the service and experience I received. I plan to return to Nepal as there are many other treks and my business will be with Imperial Treks.Matt Viveirosviveiros@ualberta.ca
Es Ist wieder Zeit fuer Nepal - March 2014
Wir entschieden uns als erstes fuer den Manaslu Trek. Dieser gilt als sehr urspruenglich mit tibetischen Flair. Mit unseren Guide Santos starten wir zum Larke Pass…Ab 3800m wanderten wir durch die ersten Schneefelder. Am 8. Tag ueberquerten wir den Larke Pass ! Traumhaft! Die Ueberschreitung waere allerdings zu einem spaeteren Zeitpunkt guenstiger gewesen. Der Schnee reichte uns teilweise bis zur Huefte. Diesen Trek kann man nur weiterempfehlen..!
Als zweites starten wir zum Everest Trek, mit dem Helicopter nach Lukla. Das Ziel ist das Everest Base Camp und am naechsten morgen zum Kala Patthar. Der Weg fuehrt durch die beeindruckende Landschaft Richtung Mt. Everest. Dieser Trek wird von sehr vielen Touristen begangen. Aber trost allem sehr zum empfehlen…
Vielen Dank an Ram!

Dear Imperial Trekking Nepal c/o Ram Regmi - March 27 2014
We are just writing to say what a wonderful trek we had with our guide Hari Amgai, who was the most excellent guide we could have hoped for. He catered fully to our every needs, and also was friendly, taught us Nepali, and kept us laughing the whole time. His English is excellent and the trip was made very easy by his communication.
Came to Nepal to go trekking Lang Tang with my family but hadn't organised any companies to go through before we got there. We heard about this company through the staff at Hotel Blue Horizon in Thamel - where we stayed in Kathmandu.They didn't leave anything out and involved us in the whole process of organising our trek. While on the trek, everything was taken care of and we knew we were in the good hands of the guide and porter that had come with us. The guide was very knowledgable about the area we were walking in, and was happy to answer any questions about the trek or other treks, and Nepal in general. Very friendly and approachable. I would love to come back.Great experience, and I would recommend Imperial Nepal to anyone looking at trekking in Nepal!

Very Good Experience - August 2014
Good info. But I would like a little bit more info about safety and aims, eventhough it is a "soft trek". Open information safety.Guide: Helpful, understanding and polite. A tip to next trek: may be the guide and the trekker should agree upon their expectations of each other.The trekking:Much up and down but, still very nice. This is not a route for very old people (much up). A little warm some part at this time of the year.Tamang was very nice and local. Almost no other tourists and I liked that a lot! Langtang gave the trek even more variety and we got to see some nice peaks and mountains.Cost: Oh, but, for one person, a little expensive. But I paid off because its not so commercial.By: (NOT CLEAR)Birgitte Email: email@example.comPhone: 0047 93608799
Highly Recommended the Imperials- August 2014
We are two French in a couple (24 and 22 years old) and we spent 3 weeks in Nepal. As we don’t have a lot of money, we are not used to travel with agencies.When we arrived in KTM, we stayed at Blue Horizon Hotel (which is nice, not too expensive and very friendly staffs). We talked with the managers of the company who owe the hotel i.e. Imperial Nepal Treks and they convinced us to book a trek with them. We went for a week walking in the Langtang area, close to the Tibet Border. That was very good, all was well-organized, and the guide was very good. They are very professional, and they don’t try to cheat on the money. As we spent a very good time with the services of Imperial Nepal Treks, we decided to book again all inclusive journey to Chitwan and Pokhara. The resort in the Chitwan is very good, clean and the food is perfect. Again, they gave us a very good impression. The hotel in Pokhara is nice too, good standing.We definitely recommend this company. Benjamin Lervoirebenjaminlervoire@gmail.com
Good Experience - August 2014
During my stay in Kathmandu, with two of my friends, I met the employers of this company while I stayed in Hotel Blue Horizon. We talked about trekking because we were interested in the Everest Base Camp Trek. They have lot of experience in trekking and that is why we decided to do the trek with one of their guides. They also heard our wishes what we would like to see during the trek, for us we would love to see the Gokyo valley.The trekking was very good organised and we really enjoyed the trek, we stayed in nice lodges. The guide knew a lot about the mountains and the mountain culture.So I can recommand everybody to plan a trek at this company

Unforgettable memories from Everest - April 2014
It was time for me to pack up for my dream trek to EBC and on recommendation from my close mate i spoke to mr ram regmi with whom he has excellent experience for his trek few years ago. Without a second thought i contacted him and since then it has been excellent experience of mine to visit nepal and fulfill my dream. My trek to EBC was flawlessly organized by him with one of the best guide who actually becomes my good friend. My trek, food & stay was all effortless for me. His staff is so friendly that i ended up vising my guide Mr. Ramhari’s home in remote Gorkha village of Nepal. I’m carrying with me are unforgettable memories of trek and homeland Nepal……..

Awesomely managed my trek to Annapurna - January 3 2014
I was placed in contact with Imperial Trekking Nepal. They organized everything in a complete package that included a wonderful guide, Ram Bhutta, all transportation costs, meals, accommodation and tea! The cost of my packages to the Annapurna Sanctuary and the Everest region were very reasonable, especially when compared to tour packages organized from Australia. Furthermore our itinerary was flexible as we were able to change plans midway through one of our treks. I cannot overemphasize the value of a guide on these treks, literally having one can save your life if you become unwell at high altitudes, as someone who knows the terrain is looking out for you.
The Annapurna Sanctuary was a far harder trek. Lots of ups and downs. So make sure you’re fit. The fantastic food from this area makes the pain worthwhile. Everest is a visual feast but sadly the food is flown in from Kathmandu. When I come back I’ll stick to pasta.
