I love traveling with Nameste Nomad! This is my fourth trip with Mohan and Nameste Nomad, the reasons I keep coming back are; 1. Affordable- they are half price of most guide companies! 2. Ecologically friendly- when trekking in Nepal we take boiled water over plastic bottles, He asks that people think of their impact as travelers, leaving only footsteps not trash. 3. Quality- from transport to hotels we stayed in high quality hotels and comfortable transportation. 4. Personal touch- the guides where fantastic in looking after all sorts of details and needs. Each trip I have learned new words to use in the countries I’ve been in. 5. Humane travel- Nameste Nomad asks you to participate in the local culture by trying and eating the locally. As in Nepal you will be asked eat Vegetarian since that is the local norm. 6. As a small organization I have had the privilege to travel with the owner, Mohan on multiple trips. 7. Local impact- since I have traveled multiple times with Nameste Nomad, I have had the privilege to see Mohan do charity work while trekking. We have fed small children as we hiked and have stayed at off the beaten path locations to provide a more equitable impact in the mountains of Nepal. One group raised money to aid a village women’s group. Two years later I visited to see the final work that the money did. 8.safety- All guides with Nameste Nomad have had training in first-aid. In Nepal most of his guides have mountain rescue skills from working on Mt. Everest. 9.Multi-National groups. As an American, it is refreshing to travel with persons from all over Europe and Australia. Each time I’ve been on a trip I have met new friends. 10. Experience-each trip has been filled with wonder and delights; from my co-travelers to the knowledge of the guides. I have nothing but great memories and new friends!

The trip with namaste nomad to Everest Base Camp was truly amazing. The group I was with were also a great bunch of people and it made the trip a lot more enjoyable. The professionalism that mohan and his team of Sherpas provide is exceptional. We did see some other groups on the trip and unfortunately we could clearly see that a lot of things were not provided for them. Travelling with mohan, everything is taken care of from food to the bed you sleep in. It’s almost like you have a group of babysitters because the only thing you have to worry about is the walking !. Mohan and his team provide a safe friendly and thoroughly enjoyable journey even when you hit some hard points. I would highly recommend Namaste nomad for any trip you might want to do. From start to finish the trip was amazing !

Whether you’re a seasoned traveller or just first time adventurer you'll notice when you search on line for somewhere to visit that there are plenty of web sites and travel companies that seem to offer very similar packages, similar routes, similar landscapes all promising the same experience. This is my second time to Himalayas, first time to Everest base camp (with a different Irish Company). I recently travelled to Island Peak with Mohan and Namaste Nomad team. No matter how much research you do regarding a trek the experience will be a unique and personal journey for you, there are a lot of variables to consider. I enjoyed my first experience, however when I compare both treks covering similar routes albeit different destinations I cannot stress how impressed I am with the leadership, professionalism, sincerity, and uniqueness that is offered by Namaste Nomad. From the outset there is trust, honesty, and a deep motivation by Mohan and his team to understand and satisfy your reason for joining an adventure with them. Whether you travel alone (like me), as a couple, or a group of friends you will soon feel part of a wonderful group with the necessary time to oneself and others yet the room to feel like you’re on holiday although you have a mission. They offer great advice from well seasoned experienced staff, your safety and well being are always monitored and cared for, food and accommodation is lovely and varied. The people you meet, the guides and helpers, and the places you visit and stay along the way are easily passed by other tour companies. With our 2018 trek to Island Peak plans had to change due to weather conditions and our itinerary was altered and managed seamlessly by Mohan and his team with coordination with Kathmandu. This unplanned adjustment offered a window to a successful summit for the majority of our party, although we met groups who failed either side of our new summit day including a group of 19 who were left so disappointed. I am a seasoned hiker but this was my first time using ropes and having to complete some technical mountaineering, the training and equipment was provided by Mohan and his team including Dawa J Sherpa (5 time Everest summiteer) all helping to micro manage each group member on the day. The uniqueness offered by Namaste Nomad is that they genuinely care that you get the most from the adventure you choose. Other companies testify to the same but sometimes really it is left up to you to make the most of what they offer, they're running a business however to Mohan and Namaste Nomad it is more than just a business, one experience and you'll understand what I mean. They have set a real benchmark for me.

Whatever your reason for adventure Namaste Nomad holds it

I have just returned from the most remarkable trip of a lifetime to Everest Basecamp. I don’t usually write reviews however on this occasion I feel the need to share my experiences which I hope will inspire others to travel and to book a trip with Namaste Nomad. I booked this trip in Jan 18 after meeting with Mohan. After my initial meeting I had no doubts in travelling with Mohan and his team. Mohan is an exceptional person who is so passionate about his business and works so hard to ensure everyone meets their goal and has an amazing trip. Everest Basecamp was everything I imagined and much more. The views are breathtaking and the sense of achievement on arriving at Basecamp is so hard to put into words. The trip is a life changing experience as you learn so much about yourself and indeed about others. It really was a journey from the time of booking until we returned home from the Himalayas. I found it very challenging physically, mentally and emotionally but that’s what made it so very special. Throughout the trek Mohan was so attentive to our every need, every decision he made was the right one and his motivation and encouragement ensured we all made it successfully to Basecamp. Mohan’s knowledge of Nepal and the Himalayas is exceptional. Everything from planning the food to gauging the weather to recognising signs when some of us weren’t too well was spot on If you are considering a trek then I can honestly say that you will not get anyone better to travel with than Namaste Nomad. The team of Sherpas and Porters are incredible and the bond made with the Sherpas is one I will never forget, it really was incredible. As for value for money you will not get a more competitive price as I priced several others which were significantly more costly than Namaste Nomad Overall if you want a challenging and life changing experience then I encourage you to make that adventure with Namaste Nomad and I guarantee you will not regret it Thanks to Mohan and his team for everything, I will never forget it.

Best company and personal guided trekking in Himalayas. I been to NEPAL few times and I have done trek in Annapurna circuit with travel company from Dublin ( not fair to say name?) That company collaborate with Nepali local company. This time I choose Namaste Nomad after friend of mine recommend Mohan from donegal ( he is nepali origin Irish citizen and previously worked in Himalayas as #sherpa and guide) I checked the website and see the cost of EBC, compare to other company from Ireland he was very cheap but his itinerary and service looks similar. It was bit hard design to take after seeing price as don't know why he is very cheap and rest are expansive. But now I can say it was the best design. After my #ebc trek with Mohan and Dawa I understand that they deal direct and no middle man. They have oxygen, emergency satellite phone, madicle kit, and we were guided by 5 time Everest summiter one of the humble guy Dawa Sherpa. I am so thankful that I made it to Everest Base Camp. Going up all food was dairy free and no meat, it was hard but great vegetrain food for healthy body and its safe and no sickness. In high altitude Mohan says meat and dairy dosent digest properly that's why many people are tummy sick and get altitude sickness in high places. Many big company doesn't care this much in details , probably no experience in field. Mohan and Dawa have great knowledge and so much caring. Mohan have great links with domestic Air and hotels and markets in Kathmandu also along the trek in tea houses it makes trip very flexible, he was able to change few places in itinerary in our demands. Instead of staying in Namche 2 night we travel to #khumjung like that didn't happen in last trip. Arrival dinner in Kathmandu was free and very well organise evening. Well breafing pre trek. Early flights in and out from lukla. No hassel at all. Luggage store in Kathmandu, Hotel moonlight is best place to stay just back of thamel and 1 minute from Everest Irish Pub 😁. Great rooms and nice beer garden in back. Sightseen was include in trip as well. Overall it was the best adventure holiday so far. I am already decided to do Meera peak with Mohan and Namaste Nomad next year. I fully recommend this small but amizing company for you epic trip to Himalayas.

My husband and I found out about Namaste Nomad while on a hike in Ireland the year before. We stayed in connect with Mohan and planned going on the Island Peak trek. Being in the USA, all our communication was by email and Mohan answered all of our questions so we felt ready when we flew to Nepal. The trek was incredible. No stress. Mohan dealt with accommodations in Kathmandu and in the Everest Circuit, food the entire trek, flights to and from Lukla, and taxis from the airport. He gave great advice on the hike up, like avoiding dairy and meat and keeping a constant steady pace, so we didn't get sick or hurt before summit day. He was concerned about our well being and wanted us to make it to the summit and be happy as much as we wanted to. His sherpas were incredible men. Humble, sweet, and considerate. You can trust your guides and you will make a great friend at the same time.

Island Peak April 2018 Nepal Trekking

My serious walking career began at the age of 60, when I trekked with Mohan of Namaste Nomad in Ladakh. Since then I have gone back to the Himalayas with him every year: Everest Base Camp, Langtang, Island Peak... Each year I've thought it was as high as I could go, and each year I've come away wanting more. This time I hoped to attain the summit of my ambitions - to climb a 6500 metre mountain, Mera Peak, at the age of 65. Mera, known as the highest trekking peak in the world, was hard. It was steep. It was exhausting. It was wonderful. With the help of Mohan's right-hand-man, Dawa, and Nerbu, a younger sherpa; in the company of three other incredibly supportive Irish trekkers; with the amazing aid of our porters; and with the help, in my case, of copious amounts of oxygen (!), I made it to the very top. Mohan and Dawa always believed in me and did everything in their power to get me to the top. I am immensely proud to have done this, and immensely grateful to Namaste Nomad for giving me the opportunity. Seize the day, people. You are capable of so much more than you think.

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

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!
