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.
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.

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.
