This was my first Himalayan trek and it was very exciting. The scenery was beautiful and lively all through-out the trek. It was well planned, I didn't have to worry about a thing. Good food at such high attitude felt like a blessing and played important role in making us forget cold and tiredness. And the best part was the team. The guides were really good, provided a lot of information; had lots of informative chats with them; and they didn't let the spirits go down especially when you had this steep slope to climb. All I had was fun.
Even though we went to this trek with different organization, trek leader Bam was the main responsible person, who knew every meter of discovered area and told us many interesting stories. He got prepared trip very well, supported us and helped with menu on the road. 10 from 10 is mine recommendation.
I was in Nepal with a group of friends in October 2017, and it was an amazing experience. Beautiful nature, breathtaking views, interesting culture and very friendly people. Our guide Bam did a great job, leading us through our two-week adventure. We've seen and explored a lot and definitely coming back!
It was my first time in Nepal and I really enjoyed it! We have done Langtang Gosaikunda Trek with day trips to Yala valley and Kianjin Ri peak. I have seen a lot of beautiful places, met many friendly people and loved culture of this country. Big thanks to Bam Magar and his team. During the trek, Bam took the time to explain the different customs in each area, named the peaks around us and always kept us informed of what we could expect the next day. He provided sound advice and showed a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each member in the group. I always felt safe and looked after. He was always cheerful and friendly. Bam, you even cooked apple pies for us!!!!! Very yummy. I'd love to come back to do some more trekking around Annapurna or Mustang area and I'd definitely travel again with Bam and his team from Explorer Adventure. I not only had an amazing trekking experience but also made a great friend. So I recommend Bam and his company to everyone who wants to discover the beauty of Nepal and Himalayas!
