Atemberaubend und immer wieder schn

Everest view Trek mit schnen Aussichten und einem Guide, der auf alles achtet. Ich crate immer wieder in Nepal , nur habe ich mich in solche Hhen noch nie getraut. Es braucht schon etwas Vorbereitung , denn man muss fit sein fr thus ein Vorhaben. Schon allein der Flug nach Lukla ist ein Abenteuer fr sich . Man sieht Berge und Menschen , die mit wenigen Worten nicht zu beschreiben sind . Mit Suman act ich auf einen wunderschnen Weg unterwegs .Jedes mal, wenn er merkte, dass ich an meine Grenzen gekommen box, wurde erst mal eine kleine Rast eingelegt, in view of that dass ich mich immer wohl und gut aufgehoben gefhlt habe. So konnte ich den ganzen Weg geniessen. Vor allem suit ich sehr fasziniert, wie die Menschen da oben leben und wie herzlich sie doch sind. Der Weg alleine, ist mit all seinen Aussichten und seiner Geschichte , diese Reise wert. Noch einmal vielen Dank fr die liebe Beratung und einen Freund, der mir immer zur Seite gestanden hat.

Solo travelers welcome!

I went to Nepal on a 9-day trek in the Langtang region a couple years ago. I was traveling on my own so I really appreciated to be with a trustworthy and friendly guide Sujan. I would definitely recommend his agency and would like to go back myself!

Annapurna base camp

We did our trekking to Annapurna base camp & Muktinath with Arjun from Bharal Adventures. Quite a well-organized trip and both Arjun and porter Hari presented themselves with professionalism and we enjoyed the trip. It was awesome to watch Annapurna and Machhapuchare

Recommander l’Agence Bharal Adventure

Je tiens à recommander l'Agence Bharal Adventure que nous avons eu l'occasion d'utiliser dans le cadre de notre Trek au Népal.

En effet, nous n'avons eu qu'à louer le professionnalisme, l'accueil, le sérieux et la capacité d'écoute des différents interlocuteurs rencontrés au sein de l'Agence. Notre binôme Guide Sujan e a été omniprésent et rigoureux pour nous permettre d'atteindre nos objectifs personnels et de découvrir les charmes et secrets du Népal. La capacité d'adaptation, l'écoute, la sécurité, la gentillesse et la connaissance de leur métier sont les principales caractéristiques de ceux-ci. Notre satisfaction n'en ai que plus grande.

Au de-là d'un rêve qui a pu devenir réalité, ce trek qui partait de Shivalaya après Jiri jusqu' au Kala Patthar en passant par GokyoRi et le col du Cho La, est finalement une des meilleures approches de la découverte de ce pays et des paysages de haute montagne. 
C'est sur la recommandation de Base Camp que nous avons pu l'aborder, l'envisager et finalement le reussir. De fait, je retiens que si je devais avoir de nouveaux objectifs montagneux dans l'avenir au Népal, je n'aurai aucune hésitation à les contacter pour envisager avec eux ce projet

EBC trekking with Bharal Adventure

We team of 6 from Malaysia undergoing our trekking journey guided by our professional tour guide, Arjun Dhakal & 3 good porters. We managed to make it to EBC on 19 May 2018. Arjun he is well in arranging our itinerary included route, accommodation, meal and even care about our safety. I was having bad cough and walking very slow far behind my teammate on my last day of trekking down to Lukla. And he was walking next to me, never left me alone. Together we finally reached Lukla within estimated time. Due to bad weather, we were stuck at Lukla for 1 day, as our flight is on the day after. Arjun had been trying his best to get us helicopter ticket on the next day. Once ticket confirmed, we went down hill to Sukey to catch our helicopter. From there I saw some others feeling upset as they waited for 6 hours but couldn’t get their helicopter ticket back to Kathmandu. We are blessed that Arjun never dissappointed us. He had make us a wonderful and unforgettable trip. Thanks to Arjun! Highly recommended tour with Bharal Adventure

Excellent people!

After many searches on the internet, fate took me to contact Arjun, one of the founder of Bharal Adventure. After emailing for 2 months, I eventually took the trip to EBC. 

Arjun, despite being on the road or enroute to EBC always did his best to reply to my email or whatsapp and patiently responded to my question. He did that in between is trekking whenever he got internet access. This includes giving me a very good price for the trip.

So, I took the trip in Apri to May 2018. I was met by Bharal Team at the Airport and took my hotel. The first impression was really good as the Team really looked after me well. They ensure everything was ok and constantly checking with me if everything was ok. They also ensure that I contact them if I needed assistance.

I met Arjun the night before the trip. He is a very nice, pleasant and polite young man. He is very open to all the situations that I might face including the additional costs that might be incurred such as personal shopping, extra meals and coffees, tipping, etc.

There were 5 of us in a group that trekked to EBC. We met at the airport in Kathmandu heading for Lukla. In Lukla, we were accompanied by 2 porters and 1 Sherpa and a group leader. So, there were 9 of us together as a team.

The trip went very well despite we had to medivac 2 of our team members at Gorekshep. The Team organized the helicopter the night before and constantly in contact with their team member in Kathmandu to ensure our team members are looked after when they reached Kathmandu by helicopter. The rest of us, continued our trip to Cho La Pass and Gokyo Ri Lake.

The view was fantastic. I promise myself, circumstances forbid, that I will be coming back and heading for higher altitudes.

We completed the trip and along the way we built not only friendship with the entire team (including the sherpa and porters) but also a small family that travel and solve the issues together.

When we arrived back at Lukla, we were stranded for 1 day due to bad weather. Our team leader ensured that we eat and sleep well and did his best through his connections to get us on the first flight the following day, despite we missed our original flight and there were many other passengers.

In summary, the trip went very well and we were looked after extremely well by professional team of Bharal Adventure.

My recommendation to potential clients of Bharal Adventure, if you have needs or concerns (including cost) please just be open to them. They are open, respected and young people who place trust and honesty very high in their business dealings.

Perfect Everest Base Camp Trek

Really beautiful vacation - I intensely suggest this! You meander through this long beautiful river valley in the environment of steep slopes that begin out at 15-22,000 feet.Yet, soon enough you can see your destination off far afield away - the every highest mountains in the world. Its as a result marvelous to both be where you are but to as well as see where your journey is to comply to you. Also unbelievable are the 500 year pass sweet, easy, astonishing Buddhist Sherpa villages. And don't forget to fade away into the Tengboche Monastery - what a treat. I'm going protection!
