I was a solo trekker and was looking to complete the trek in 11 days including arrival and departure. My return plan was taking a helicopter from Gorakshep to save time and get ariel views. However, no company was giving me confirmation of heli ride for a single trekker. This is when I contacted Man Kumar Tarang who gave me a very competitive price for my plan. Pros: 1) Competitive pricing 2) Arranged return on a shared helicopter (nobody else was willing) 3) Was quick to send all information and communication 4) Hotel and guest/tea house arrangements were as best as possible. 5) Man Kumar Tarang has good contacts with the helicopter companies. When flight from KTM to Lukla was canceled, he was quick to get a seat for me for a very low price. Others were stranded for 1-3 days. 6) Man Kumar kept in touch throughout the trek, calling every other day to find if things were going well. 7) He gave right advise to take the helicopter back to Kathmandu (my plan was only till Lukla and then flight) which helped me not miss my flight out of KTM 8) He helps me rent the sleeping bag, so I didn't have to worry arriving in KTM and shopping around. Prakash was the best porter cum guide one can have. He kept my needs in priority throughout the trek. 1) Prakash maintained the pace of the trek keeping my stamina in mind with proper rest stops. 2) He would make sure to serve the meals, get hot water, tea. In two of the guest houses, he was able to get me special meal outside the menu. 3) He was my photographer and took good pictures without much instructions. 4) He would make sure to confirm with all the guest houses before arrival, get a room with no sharing and bring blankets if not provided. 5) He helped me in difficult terrains and without his help, I could not have made it to Kala pathther. He literally pulled me countless times to climb big rocks and motivated throughout the trek. 6) On the last day, he kept in touch with the helicopter service provider to get the earliest ride possible. I will highly recommend Halesi Treks and Prakash as guide, if you are planning solo or group trek in the Himalayas, especially if you plan Helicopter service.

This is the 2nd time, me and friend booked the trip with Halesi Trek. I still had very high recommendation from this company because everything was arranged very professionally and friendly. Porter and guide very helpful and always be there for you. Mera peak is a very beautiful trek and also challenging. For sure if you are looking for adventure, you would be satisfied with this. an unforgettable experience from culture, foods, High camping, walking on the glacier. truly amazing. Thank you, Man Kumar for making this happened. We will definitely come back again to Nepal to taste others experience.

Effettuato questo trek nella seconda metà di marzo con temperature buone a parte la notte nelle zone più alte. Il gruppo era composto da 6 persone con Niru come guida, Ram assistente guida e tre portatori. I servizi dell'agenzia e delle guide sono stati ottimi, persone competenti e piene di attenzioni alle necessità del gruppo. Tra cui le salviette calde per la pulizia delle mani prima della cena, il gel antibatterico, la frutta dopo cena e il formaggio come antipasto. Si sono sempre prodigati per il servizio delle pietanze e non di rado anche nella preparazione in cucina. Quindi tra tutti noi si è creato un buon affiatamento che ha contribuito alla buona riuscita del trek. La prima parte del percorso si svolge su una strada in costruzione (in comune con il Manaslu Circuit), meno interessante rispetto a quando si entra nella Tsum Valley vera e propria. Poi il panorama si apre su ampi pascoli, villaggi e montagne innevate, con la possibilità di raggiungere alcuni Gompa.

환상적인 트레킹을 경험했습니다. 2019년 1월, 추운 겨울이었지만 나의 가이드의 탁월한 리드로 안전하게 쿰부 히말라야 3패스를 성공할수 있었습니다. 할레시 트렉은 성공적인 트레킹을 위해 항상 고객 입장에서 생각했으며 숙소와 일정 그리고 음식까지 신경썼습니다. 무엇보다 좋았던 건 가이드는 멋진 사진을 찍어주기 위해 시간을 아끼지 않았다는 것입니다. 결국 남는 건 사진이잖아요^^

Our long-term plan with my wife was to visit Himalaya. I got a reference to Halesi Treks from my brother’s friends, who had experience with them. We started talking with Man Kumar Tamang one year in advance. Man Kumar was very communicative and help us to choose the right trek for us based on our expectation. Backward I can confirm, that it was a really good choice. We preferred trek, which is not so popular and frequently visits, but still, you have a chance to see the biggest mountains (we know, we do not want visit EBC in High season). Our choice was Mardi Himal Trek in Annapurna Conservation Area. An advantage of this trek is that the trail is up on the ridge compare to ABC which leads the valley and at that time is overcrowded. After landing in Kathmandu Man Kumar personally invited us together with our Guide Tek Tamang. After two days spent in Kathmandu, we moved to Pokhara and our trek starts. We spent a beautiful 10 days in the mountains with sunny weather and breathtaking views. The whole time our Guide Tek Tamang took care about us and provided us with perfect service. It was a really nice holiday with Halesi Treks. We can strongly recommend this company.
