The rolling grasslands are dotted with suitably thick-coated donkeys and cows. On the northernmost tip of Malin Head, called Banba’s Crown, stands a cumbersome 1805 clifftop tower that was built by the British admiralty and later used as a Lloyds signal station.

I had the most amazing experience walking up to EBC and Kala Pattar with Namaste Nomad. Words cannot describe the views and euphoria. The trip couldn't have been any better from beginning to end. We were thoroughly spoilt and taken care of to the highest standards by Dawa our guide and Sudip his assistant. They were both very accommodating, flexible, helpful, polite, knowledgeable and fun to be around. Our porters were efficient and helped ease our pain! The team offered us excellent advice at all times. In preparation for our trip Ashim and his team briefed us at our hotel and answered all of our questions. I would not hesitate in recommending your highly professional team to any friend or family member (RJ from Southampton UK)

Did the errigal sunrise hike. We didnt see the sun because of the mist and the Rain, but is was still a very beautiful trip to the top. Had a great guide (Malachy thanks again) and the trip was well organized by Mohan.

Had an amazing trip. Was worth every penny. The sherpas and guides were very experienced and professional (two of them had summited Everest). The food was great too. Mohan knew what was best for the group, was great at leading us to Everest!

Adventure of a lifetime

I took part in a trek to Annapurna Basecamp with Namaste Nomad in April 2019. I had trekked with Mohan and his team twice before- to Langtang Valley in Nepal in March 2018 and The Picos, in Northern Spain in June 2018. This was my third trip- so I wasn’t as anxious about what awaited me in Nepal! The route to Annapurna is very accessible, the walking was tough enough, I thought- a lot of steps, which are sore on the knees! We were well looked after my our guide, Mohan, and his Sherpa team, Dowa and Mingma, as well as the rest of the team. The food, as on all the trips I’ve been on, was really superb. I loved the rice, lentils, local vegetables and of course the ginger tea! The accommodation was basic but always clean and adequate. Reaching Annapurna Basecamp was the high point of the trip for me- I will never forget it! We were part of a small group, just four hikers. I was traveling with a friend. We had both been part of larger groups on our previous two trips.I think I would prefer to travel in a bigger group if/when I go on a trip like this again. It was a great experience and I recommend Namaste Nomad.

Annapurna Basecamp trip

I had the pleasure of recently being part of another wonderful trip to the Himalayas - Annapurna Base Camp - with Namaste Nomad - a wonderful small business.There are so many reasons I would always choose Namaste Nomad over any other company. Most importantly it is a true Eco friendly organisation, everything is accounted for along the treks - food, water and waste. They are also Animal friendly and only use porters for transport. This is better as it is providing more jobs for locals, and removes any animal cruelty that can occur only the trek due to pushing yaks or donkeys too hard, too far and without adequate food or water.The food during my trips was phenomenal! If you listen to Mohan and the rest of the guides you are guaranteed success at altitude. Vegetarian, local and fresh food are on the menu. Everyone can live without meat for a couple of weeks...you most definitely don't want to be eating meat in a country that doesn't do health and safety and the food has to be transported on some ones back and could be 4 or 5 days before reaching its end destination - your plate.I have never felt safer on a trip in a foreign country than with Namaste Nomad. The sherpas, porters and guides are all local and have been with the company for a long time. They are all courteous, respectful, friendly and extremely knowledgeable - many of them having submitted Everest and other Himalayan peaks many times over.Everything is taken care of from your first interaction with Mohan. Flights, hotels, transport food, etc. The cost is the best value I have seen - even better value than most as the experience you are getting is unbelievable.As if that wasnt enough, Namaste Nomad also helps out small, local people and communities around Nepal with fundraising and charity works. If you want to raise money to give back to some of the communities you know that it is going directly to where it is needed and not into the pockets of charity CEOs.Don't listen to me any more, just book a trip with Mohan and see for yourself!

Another incredible trip with an amazing company

Himalayas, they are beautiful, intimidating and challenging. You might think they are perhaps to hard for you? Well, they are hard, but in our everyday life we are often very comfortable. We need to be challenged from time to time to remind ourselves that we are more than our houses, jobs and what others think of us. I needed that break and challenge two years ago. I joined Mohan and his team on the journey to Everest Basecamp. And lets get the boring (but important) stuff out the way. The team is as professional as it gets. We had the nicest food, best accommodation and best guides. Mohan created atmosphere of community and support. I often looked at other groups (that probably payed 2 or 3 times as we did), and they did not had the service and the fun that we did. But apart from all of the pragmatic stuff, they are the Himalayas themselves. My choice was to abandon the internet altogether (its there if you need it) and enjoy being there. For two weeks, the world forgot about me as i forgot about it. All i cared about was walking. It was like a meditation, an it was simple. Just one foot after another until we reached the destination. Mohan does expeditions the way they should be done. He cares about your spirit, what you eat, what you drink, how you sleep. He knows that those things will get you there and help you with the altitude. His team is supportive, and very experienced. I will be a repeat customer one day, and not once.

What a great trip!This trip lets you see a different side to Northern Spain and the Camino. We had a super time trekking in the Picos de Europe with an amazing bunch of people. The groups are small group so it was flexible and there was no issue with tailoring days to what people needed or required.All ages groups, singles, couples but most of all at the end great friends!Accommodation and meals for each night had been thoughtfully located and selected! Food was amazing!This trip has to be experienced and enjoyed by everyone!

Picos De Europe

"

Incredible trip! My wife and I came from the states to join Mohan and a bunch of wonderful Irish people on an island peak expedition. This was our first exposure to trekking in Nepal and technical mountaineering in general. We are rock climbers and hikers, but we trained extra hard the few months before the trip to develop good fitness and strong legs for long walks uphill. We met Mohan briefly while visiting Ireland a year earlier and felt instantly that we could trust him. Mohan is extremely experienced with trekking in the Himalayas (18yrs I think). He has connections every step of the way from hotels in Kathmandu, to flights to lukla, and in even in tea houses all along the route. This allows him to offer his clients fantastic service at a great price.Nice accommodations and food the whole time - everything is included in the cost up front so the only thing we had to think about was water which we just treated with chlorine tabs. Mohan gives great guidance to help avoid getting sick either from altitude or food. He demands good hygiene from kitchen staff and always sends his Sherpas into the kitchen to help and make sure our food is clean.The whole experience felt like a private trip with friends and not commercially organized. And really that's what it is - no middle man. Mohan genuinely cares about his clients and you will quickly become his friend. He will do everything he can to keep you healthy and acclimatized so you can have the best shot possible at meeting your goal. You won't have to worry about being confused the whole time - he keeps you well informed and is always checking to make sure you are doing well. He even coordinates with a guy in Kathmandu so they can make changes for summit attempts based on weather. Because he did this, we ended up summiting a day earlier than planned which made all the difference - I think nearly everyone failed the day before and the day after us due to snowfall, but we had 5 out of 8 summit in our group thanks to Mohan's leadership. Also if you do island peak - he won't make you walk from base camp to Chukkung after a 12-15 hr summit push, we met several people who after making it back to base camp still had a few hours of walking to get to a lodge and we really felt for them. His Sherpa staff is awesome and Mohan ensures they are well taken care of in addition to the porters/yaks. These Sherpas have more than adequate experience and are some of the kindest people you will ever meet. They even threw me a birthday party with a homemade cake along the way. They are fun, happy, and incredibly humble - always working hard to support their families. They deserve a good tip when the trip is over.Whatever you're looking for in a trek/climb - Mohan is your man. He'll work with you to make it happen. He is a friend for life now and I seriously recommend his guide services. Namaste!

Experience of a lifetime!

"

I went to India and Ladakh with Namaste Nomad two years ago. I absolutely loved it, particularly the Himalayas. I therefore challenged myself to trek to Everest Base Camp with them. I did this last year and I can truthfully say that it was one of the most wonderful things I have ever done in my life. I am in my sixties, but the care and attention given me made everything not only manageable but immensely enjoyable. I've now signed up to climb Island Peak with Mohan and the team - my first serious Himalayan mountain. It's a prospect that fills me with a mixture of great excitement and a healthy dose of fear - but I know that I am in the safest of hands. Mohan and the team are watching you every step of the way. Safety is their number one priority, but they manage to make every trek great fun too. Bring it on!

Truly a high-point of my life

"

I recently returned from a thoroughly enjoyable trek to EBC and Kalapathar. The trip was beyond amazing and a life changing experience. This was all made possible, largely due to our highly organised and very knowledgable Leader Mohan (and his team of local Sherpas and Porters) who educated us on all aspects of life in Nepal including environmental issues which he is very passionate about. Mohan’s attention to detail was second to none, ensuring everyone stayed healthy and safe, while also thoroughly enjoying ourselves. This is the trip of a lifetime with breathtaking views and such cheerful and welcoming locals. We had a fantastic group that supported one another throughout and the craic was brilliant. I would highly recommend travelling with this company and I for one, can’t wait here for my next trekking adventure with them. Thank you Mohan.
