  • Best experience Short Khopra Danda Trek

    Our Khopra Danda trek was amazing! We spent great days with our guide called Indra who was very friendly, helpful and professional. Also, the porter was very kind. The owner Nirajan was very helpful talking via WhatsApp helping us to prepare the trek the days before. We booked it via online and met with him in Kathmandu.

  • Short Everest View Trek and Kathmandu

    I was traveling as a solo woman and Rugged Trails Nepal organized my trekking trip to Tengboche (short Everest view trek) and a couple of city tours in Kathmandu. Indra was my guide during my trekking trip and he was the most helpful and nice person. Nirajan made my travel experience a really good one and help me with everything that I asked for. I completely recommend this agency for any trekking trip in the Himalayas and for a solo woman.

  • Amazing Everest Base Camp Trek experience

    My Rugged Trails EBC trek was one of the most amazing experiences I've had. I did a solo trek to EBC and Gokyo Lake. My guide was very experienced and knowledgeable, I always felt safe and taken care of. Rugged trails plan the whole trip very well. I went at the end of the season in May which meant there was less people on the trails and in the tea houses which was great. It was also starting to warm up slightly although we still got to see some snow. The scenery is so beautiful as it changes from the lush green pine forests and rivers with the most clear water to barren landscapes surrounded by mountains covered in snow, scattered with ancient Tibetan scriptures carved into stone and rocky outcrops the entire way really made it a special experience and made me feel so grateful to be able to see this part of the world. It is like another world, where there is no cars or motorised transport at all, so it gives the feeling of going back in time. It's not always easy but definitely worth the effort and I highly recommend anyone who is interested in doing it to go and do it while you can. 

    Rugged trails make everything so easy for you, so you just get to go along on the journey and enjoy it. I would highly recommend going through Rugged Trails, their experience and knowledge of Nepal makes it a really enjoyable experience.

  • 4 Days Annapurna Base Camp Trek

    Following a last-minute decision to escape from Singapore during a long weekend I enquired with Rugged Trails Nepal if it would be manageable to reach the Annapurna Base Camp in 4 days. From the first time I contacted them by Email I got a very quick response back from Nirajan and very quickly we were looking at the options available. We agreed that as long as I wasn't shy to extend the walking hours a bit each day it would be feasible, so I signed up for it and Nirajan took care of everything from my arrival in Nepal at Kathmandu to my transfer by plane to Pokhara and by Jeep to the trail starting point. With only about a week notice everything was organized, and despite a late arrival from my side due to a delayed international flight, Nirajan was waiting at Kathmandu and transferred me to Pokhara without any issue. From Pokhara, I carried on with my guide Indra who has been amazing all the way. Despite some logistical setbacks due to Monsoon road conditions we made it to the trail as planned and set off to ABC. It took us 2 days to reach the ABC, the first day was a tough (hot) and reasonably long hike, but the second day was pretty reasonable and we made it to ABC by 3 pm 
    Despite the monsoon season, we were blessed with great views in the morning before heading back down- with 2 easy days hiking we were back to where we stated and even made it to Pokhara in the evening to enjoy a nice dinner and the beautiful walk by the lake.
    The following morning Indra took the time to show me around Pokhara to get a feel for the city before seeing me off back to Kathmandu where Nirajan took the time to show me around Kathmandu before seeing me off.
    All together the Rugged trail Nepal team has been awesome, communication was great and I felt really looked after all the way, they truly went beyond what I would have expected to be helpful all the way and left me with amazing memories and pictures of a 6 days trip (from Singapore and back).

  • Makes Everything easy

    Went on a solo trek (Mardi Himal) and the company made everything super easy from start to finish... which was a luxury for me since I’m used to trying to figure out everything myself and booking buses, taxis, hotels, doing permits, etc... definitely worth the money to just put everything into someone else’s hands and relax. Mardi Himal could be done without a guide, but for me as a solo traveler it was nice to have one (he was super fun and funny as well), and the hotels before and after the trek were suppper nice as well. I felt really well taken care of and definitely recommend this company for anyone wanting to put their trip into someone else’s (very capable) hands and enjoy nature in Nepal.

  • Three Days Kathmandu Valley Trek

    My daughter and I signed up for a three day trekking experience in the Kathmandu valley with Rugged Trails Nepal. I particularly liked that it was a private tour with our own guide and porter. In that manner the trip was more flexible and customized with our particular situation and desires. Nirjan, the manager, organized the entire tour including our lodging and meals. We kept in contact easily through WhatsApp. 

    We had a wonderful time! Our guide, Dipak, and our porter, Shankar, were extremely professional and a pleasure to have accompany us. When we got stuck in the poring rain, Dipak was able to miraculously arrange transportation so that we could get to our next hotel before nightfall. I would highly recommend Rugged Trails to help organize all of your travels in Nepal.

  • Wonderful Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

    Our trek to Ghorepani and Poon Hill was magnificent. We were picked up at hotel by our excellent guide Shrawan. We already had met him the day before where he explained the trek to us and also gave us a map of the trekking district which was very nice start! We drove to Ulleri in a 4wheel drive which was a beautifull ride (18 years ago we hiked up the steps but the road now goes to Ulleri). porter was also nice person and helped in the lunch and dinner places. The guesthouse on the trek were excellent and food on the trek was also very good. Duringthe trek our guide Shrawan explained many things and he was also a very pleasant person. We took our 2 daughters of 16 and 13 and it turned out they were more fit than we.....Truly would recommend Rugged Trails Nepal.
