Our guide Chhabin and porter Best were competent , caring and knowledgeable and we couldn't have done it without them . I would highly recommend this company for treating in Nepal. The trek to EBC was arduous but rewarding and made easier by the wonderful staff at Nature Explore

An Amazing Everest Base Camp Adventure. For our first visit to Nepal and our first time trekking in The Himalayas, we were so lucky to have met The guys at Nature Explore Trek who helped us have the perfect adventure to Everest Base Camp.

I have been in contact with Dinesh via Facebook for a long time before we even arrived in Nepal and he has always been on hand to answer any questions and help us with our plans and put together our itinerary.

When we landed in Kathmandu we were picked up at the airport by Bharat who helped us with everything that we needed whilst in Kathmandu before setting off on our trek in 2 days.

Before our arrival, all of our flights to/from Lukla and our trekking guide were already arranged, so that we could relax and prepare before setting off on the trek 2 days later.

Our trekking guide was Chhabin who was a fantastic guide and friend for our trip! He spoke great English and had excellent knowledge of the region. For our first time in the area it was a little difficult for us to get used to the Altitude but Chhabin looked after us with great care, and helped us to have a comfortable and enjoyable journey!

I would highly recommend Nature Explore Trek to anybody, and I will not hesitate to contact them again on my next visit to Nepal!

Thank you Dinesh, Bharat and Chhabin!

EBC & Island Peak - 17 days

From different agencies that we reached out to, Nature Explore made the best impression by taking time to answer our questions and offering a good deal for our trip. We wanted to climb Island Peak with EBC as acclimatization, total 17 days.
Dinesh recommended a reliable place for renting sleeping bag and other gear we needed. The climbing gear (harness, helmet, crampons) was provided at the Island Peak Base Camp and we didn’t need to carry it which was very convenient.
We decided to go without porter and carried our heavy backpacks.
Chhabin was our trekking guide. He is very experienced, helpful and funny. He was able to find the perfect pace for us and advised us on different route options if available. He took us to the best viewpoints, the museum and some monasteries. Always patiently answering our questions on culture, nepali language and remaining distance :) We felt safe and well taken care of all the time. Meals, some tea and even snacks on summit day were included.
Eventhogh I didn’t make it to the summit, it was a great experience and I’m looking forward to my next tekking with Nature Explore!!

Great EBC experience with Nature Explore!

My partner and I had a great experience with Nature Explore, doing the Everest Base Camp trek. We were in contact with Dinesh on Facebook for a long time while planning our trip and he was incredibly helpful and answered all our questions which made us feel confident that Nature Explore were the right company for us.

Dinesh and Bharat arranged our airport pick ups/drop offs and flights to Lukla. Chhabin, our guide during the trek, was great throughout. He kept us informed and was also very accommodating of us making changes to our route.

On top of all this, we were given lovely gifts to remember our trip and treated to a delicious meal when we arrived back in Kathmandu. We would both highly recommend using Nature Explore for all your trekking adventures!!

Everest

Dinesh is the ultimate guide. He is very accommodating in every way. He is so knowledgeable about all aspects of climbing/trekking and the Everest region. Dinesh has climbed on Everest and that's one of the reasons why I decided to trek with his company. I'm a photographer and I wanted to go off the trails and into some villages to photograph the locals and Dinesh made all that possible. I will return to Nepal ASAP as I want to do the Annapurna circuit and there is only one guide for me and that's Dinesh. I highly recommend his company. This is a journey of a lifetime and something you'll remember for the rest of your life. Pick Dinesh!

I have been on two unforgettable trips with Bharat (Annapurna Circuit and Everest Base Camp) and would not hesitate to go again.
Bharat is a very experienced guide,
not only very knowledgeable, reliable and safety-conscious but also a nice guy to be around and to share a beer or Nepali tea with at the end of a long day walking. But what's really outstanding is his willingness to go the extra mile for his clients: He literally threw himself in the dirt to take the best pictures of us, had cookies and hot tea ready when whe reached Everest Base Camp and, when we were stuck at Lukla airport, checked on us all the time while we were waiting for our flight and finally managed to book us on a different airline so we could get out.

Wir wanderten im November / Dezember 2017 zum EBC. Es war eine fantastische Reise. Dinesh hat alles perfekt organisiert, war immer für unsere (Sonder-)Wünsche offen,stets freundlich und noch kostengünstig. Man konnte immer feststellen, dass Ihm das Wohl bzw. die Zufriedenheit der Gäste am wichtigsten sind. Als sich am Ende der Himmel in Lukla über Tage zuzog, hat er sogar noch die Inlandsflüge spontan Umgebucht und uns mit einem Hubschrauberflug und Jeep-Trip rechtzeitig zum Abflug nach Kathmandu gebracht! Vielen Dank Dinesh! Es war perfekt!!!
