Two weeks holiday in Nepal with Alpine Eco Tour
My wife and I took a 2 week tour in Nepal with Alpine Eco Tour in Feb 2011 and had a fantastic time. Alpine Eco Tour provided the very highest caliber guides and Ram Kumar (the proprietor) personally made sure that everything went smoothly. When storms caused our original flights to be cancelled and then cancelled for a second time, he graciously accommodated our changes at no extra cost. The cost was reasonable and the services provided were exceptional-even beyond what we had expected from the contract. My wife and I have taken several tours in foreign countries and Alpine Eco Tour stands out as the best yet for both quality and value. I give Alpine Eco Tour my very highest recommendation-it feels like we have new friends in a faraway land.

Namaste to you all at Alpine Eco Tour.
We had a fantastic time trekking from Lukla to Namche although we got stuck at Lukla for a day due to, as you know, the cancellation of the other flight. It was an adventurous experience for us and hoping to trek again in future.
Your friendly service was much appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed Nabin’s service and company. I would like to thank you for delivering such a good service towards us and hopefully we would be able to help your company prosper in future.
It was good to hear from you all.

Two weeks of trekking around Langtang and Gosaikund
The beginning of the tour goes completely through the tropical forest around the Langtang Khola-river. After passing the natural level of the mountain will take you to the high plains of the Langtang Mountain. A wonderful contrast to the climate at the beginning of the tour.
After descending the mountain, you start equal to the next challenge, passing the high-altitude lakes in the Lauribinayak Pass, adjacent to the peak, where you can enjoy magnificent views over the lake and surrounding mountains. You continue this with the descent on the south side of the mountain party, and you return here after a few days hiking in the countryside, slowly back into the urban world around Kathmandu.
Throughout the hike with Alpine Eco Tour pass up good locations to spend the night at the local guesthouses in the area.
We had a really great time on our Everest base camp trip and thought that our guide Nabin was very responsible, organized and took great care to keep us in good health. He made sure that we paced ourselves well and took us to places that served good food, and clean accommodation. I would definitely recommend him and the company to anyone that was thinking of trekking in Nepal.

Dear Alpine Eco team,
"We just wanted to drop a quick note of thanks now that we have had a week to reflect on our trip to Nepal. We have tried several times to think of some suggestions to offer that would further improve upon the Alpine Eco Tour service, but are quite frankly unable to come up with anything! Among the best trips of our lives, our experience in Nepal was as close to perfect as one could ever reasonably hope for, and Alpine Eco Tour was much of the reason why. Excellent communication prior to the trip (often on short notice), ability and willingness to accommodate last-minute requests (i.e. flights to/from Pokhara and the Mountain Flight), extensive knowledge of the region by local staff, provision of materials and information, friendliness and professionalism of local staff (everyone), flexibility to accommodate guests' needs and wishes....the list goes on. We cannot think of a single area in which we felt anything less than superbly served by your company.”
Thank you for your great service.

Dear Alpine Eco Tour,
In the following my father, my brother and I would like to give you some feedback about our trip.
Firstly, we would like to thank our trekking guide RG (Ram Gopal). He was always very friendly, helpful and caring. Thank you very much RG! He adapted perfectly to our speed and we never were in a hurry, in fact we had a lot of time to take a lot of photos (something that is very important to us). If there was a day we didn’t feel so well, he even carried our backpacks. We think that’s a very special service!
Besides showing us the mountains, RG also told us a lot about Nepal’s culture and people. He knows a lot about history, the different customs and religions and it was always very interesting to listen to him. RG also told us about his family, so like that we got a good impression about how a normal Nepali family lives and what life is like in Nepal. That was very interesting to us because information like that is hard to find in a guided book.
The tea houses were always good. If there was a lower and a higher class tea house RG would always pick the higher class one.
After spending 17 days with RG, he was not only our guide anymore, actually he has become our friend and we are sure that we’ll keep in touch with him.
We also want to thank our porters Kumar and Rajan. They were always very friendly and helpful and they never complained about carrying our (too) heavy bags, in fact they were always smiling. Thanks a lot for that!
Secondly, the white water rafting was a new and good experience to us. The water of the Trishuli River was a refreshing contrast to the mountains.
Altogether, we are very happy that we chose Alpine Eco Tour. Everything was perfectly organized, we never felt worried or left alone.
The hotel that you had picked for us (Hotel Yak & Yeti) was a great choice. It’s a very nice hotel and its location downtown Kathmandu is just perfect for going sightseeing or shopping. The guided sightseeing tour through Kathmandu the first day was very interesting, too. Thanks a lot to our guide Prem who was very friendly and full of knowledge!
Last but not least, we would like to thank you, all the great team of Alpine Eco Tour, for managing the big problems we had with our international flights. Even though Alpine Eco had nothing to do with our international flights because we had booked them through a travel agency from our home town, you helped us to fix this problem caused by our travel agency. Without you we would have been completely lost and probably we would still be in Kathmandu, waiting and hoping for a flight back home. That shows that Alpine Eco Tour really cares about its clients and that its standard of service is very high. In the past we had used some travel companies from our home town for organizing trekking trips all around the world. Alpine Eco Tour’s standard of service is at least equal to them, or even higher. That’s why we can completely recommend Alpine Eco Tour for holidays in Nepal, no matter if it’s trekking, sightseeing or going to the jungle.
Thanks again to the entire Alpine Eco Tour team! You made our stay in Nepal a wonderful and unforgettable experience.
We are looking very forward to seeing you again, maybe soon on another trip, of course organized by Alpine Eco Tour.
