  • Hiking and trekking with vonKathmandu has been the highlight of my life since moving to Nepal.

    Hiking and trekking with vonKathmandu has been the highlight of my life since moving to Nepal. The day hikes are always well organized and fun. The food is amazing (lunch and snacks are included on hikes). The guides are kind and detail oriented. The trek I went on with this company was an amazing experience and I can’t say enough about how wonderful everything was planned (even plan b, if a didn’t work out). The trek was catered to my speed and ability. I was well-prepared thanks to vonKathmandu’s guidance and never felt uninformed. I will definitely trek with them again. Thank you, vonKathmandu!

  • VonKathmandu provides a personal touch. They want you to have a wonderful time because they are passionate about the mountains and trekking themselves.

    I had an excellent trekking to EBC with VonKathmandu. It was well organized with a great guide and porter, sleeping in comfortable and well-chosen hostels along the trail. VonKathmandu provides a personal touch. They want you to have a wonderful time because they are passionate about the mountains and trekking themselves. We extended our trek with one day because of the snow, which was flexibly accommodated. I liked the formula of the lunch and dinner not being included in the price, which meant that you had more control over when and what to spend. A great trip organized by people who care and have the local network to ensure that you have an excellent trip.

  • Outside the busy season, we had the opportunity to sit with the locals around the wood fire ovens and to listen to their stories about bears raiding the village..

    EBC – I was a bit worried going to EBC for my very first long hike, but VonKathmandu took excellent care of me: we went shopping for outfits, got my shoes stitched in Namche, we found all the Cappuccinos along the trek, stopped to take photos of every Yak … while enjoying the breathtaking mountain scenery of Taboche, Amadablam, Lotse, Nuptse – and finally Everest, all along. The guide was very knowledgeable about all the view points and extra spots worth exploring along the trek, including a religious festival in Tengboche Monastery, or local chyang curtesy of his parents. A great trip organised by people who love the mountains and want to make sure you have an excellent experience. Langtang – at the end of the trekking season, my lady guide and me, we had the mountains for ourselves. Outside the busy season, we had the opportunity to sit with the locals around the wood fire ovens and to listen to their stories about bears raiding the village, the 2015 earthquake, how to ensure good education for the children, and more recent, about the impact of corona on tourism, Covid cases and vaccination campaigns. Apart from enjoying the forest and the mountains and the serenity and the silence before returning to a busy and noisy Kathmandu, an unexpectedly educational tour as well, with quick impromptu visits to the Chinese border and Nuwakot castle.

  • They were well-organized, effective, and fun in their approach!

    vonKathmandu Adventures guided and supported me through all the stages of planning, executing and recovering from my trip to Everest Base Camp. They were well-organized, effective, and fun in their approach! Journeys to exotic destinations always involve unexpected changes midstream and I felt better just knowing that they had my back. I highly recommend vonKathmandu to all travelers to/ around Nepal!

  • The views of the mountains were so up close and I really appreciated that you found the trails with those gorgeous views!

    The trip was amazing and I was so happy to be your guinea pig for this one! I loved how you found and connected the trails behind the trails and took me to corners around Pokhara that I had no idea existed! The choice of hotels was excellent and I will never forget the view from Club ES – it’s totally etched in my mind forever. The most peaceful moment was sitting at Rupa lake – watching birds land and take off. What a welcome little moment of rest before going up the hill! The views of the mountains were so up close and I really appreciated that you found the trails with those gorgeous views! You are an excellent guide, smart, funny, caring. I felt at all times well cared for. On top, you’re an outstanding photographer and the memories you created are a very cool bonus. And of course, Luna the cocker spaniel, agrees with all I said and raises her paw to say hi 🙂

    These hikes were one of the absolute highlights of my entire 4 years in Kathmandu!! Thank you for organising and for your ability to spot a moonshine twinkle in the eye of an old lady from 20 meters away. I hope we get to hike together again somewhere, sometime, and eat much delicious and local food!!

Great team, great views and landscape, professional organization, super care and I loved the dried fruit and nut package and ending with a lovely coffee. Thank you so much! You guys do a perfect job.

  • Get some exercise, learn some new areas of the valley and how they connect to each other, and soak in the culture!

    A wonderful way to get out and explore your own backyard of KTM valley with likeminded people. Get some exercise, learn some new areas of the valley and how they connect to each other, and soak in the culture!
