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^^
I have to congratulate myself with Halesi Treks that organized an amazing and adventurous treks for our group. They planned everything on detail to make our stay in Nepal an unforgettable experience! The guides of Halesi Treks were very prepared and informed, kind and always ready to give their help, making us feel safe in any moment. I would strongly raccomand Man Kumar's Agency, even because their prices are cheaper than any other agency we contacted all in all, I could't hope for anything better, thank you!

Ringrazio gli amici di Bergamo che mi hanno suggerito Man Kumar quale referente e Lorella che mi ha accolto nel suo gruppo per il mio primo viaggio in Nepal. È stata un'esperienza unica , tosta e indimenticabile, la prima parte sulle vette del Kumbu nel tour dei 3 passi , per 17 giorni con Niru, Take e gli sherpa , la seconda parte da Lukla a Paplu, nei villaggi incontaminati , accolti con grande calore dalla grande famiglia di Man Kumar , siamo stati accuditi e anche viziati con cilazione pranzetti , merende e cene sapientemente preparate dal cuoco al nostro seguito. Ringrazio calorosamente Man Kumar Tamal , la sua agenzia Halesi treks e tutto il suo team per la.grande attenzione e la super organizzazione prestata. Consigliatissimo a tutti gli amici e a chi vuole scoprire un autentico Nepal ancora incontaminato.

제가 아마 두 번째 한국인 고객으로 여기 에이전시를 다녀갔을 것입니다. 제가 다녀온 루트는 일반인들에겐 쉽지 않은 3패스 3리 코스였습니다. 추가적으로 EBC도 다녀왔고요. 에이전시 대표인 만쿠마씨와 그의 가족들은 정말 친절합니다. 제가 트레킹 전후로 숙소를 구하지 않았는데 자신의 큰 방을 흔쾌히 내어주고 부엌에 딸린 방에서 3가족이 잠을 이뤘습니다. 너무나도 감동이었습니다. 그리고 가장 중요했던 트레킹 가이드는 만쿠마씨만큼 아주 좋은 사람이었습니다. 저의 가이드는 텍이라는 이름을 가진 네팔리였는데 아주 순수하고 저의 의견을 존중해주는 사람이었습니다. 텍 덕분에 15일의 일정을 13일만에 끝냈습니다. 할레시 트렉이 비록 영어로 소통해야 한다는 점이 힘들 수 있지만 한국인들이 많이 이용했으면 좋겠네요. 영어로 소통하는 것에 조금의 불편함만 가지신다면 도전하셔도 좋을 것 같습니다. 다만 응급 상황엔 위험하니 영어가 부족하다면 안나푸르나 쪽 트레킹으로 가는 게 좋을 것 같아요. 에베레스트는 다녀와보니 심하게 가파른 곳이 많아 위험했습니다. 그럼 좋은 트레킹 되세요~ 정말 인생에 있어 한 번쯤 다녀 오시면 좋습니다.
