Arranged our 10 day trek to Khopra with Apex Himalaya with Bimal. He was wonderfully helpful in finding a trek that fit our budget and timeline. His brother Bikram was our guide and was not only an amazing person to spend 10 days with but also an incredibly qualified mountaineer and eager to share knowledge about Nepal. Next time I come to trek in Nepal, I will book my tour with Apex, no question.
Thanks for an unforgettable trek friends!

Awesome Khopra Trek!

I had the pleasure of working with Bikram, Bimal, and their team in Spring 2017 for a trip to Langtang and a small village in Rasuwa called Gre.

Since 1992, I’ve made 25+ trips to Nepal and worked with many, many outfitters, and can easily say Apex is in the top tier. Their focus is on what is important: safety and fun, as well as cultural engagement which should be a focus of all journeys to Nepal.

On this particular trip, my wife and I came with our 2 children, ages 7 and 9, to trek up the Langtang and then visit Gre, a village I’ve been connected to since 1992. Our Langtang team consisted of Arjun, Santosh, Nima, and Tsering, and all 4 were exceptional, ensuring day in and day out that every detail was attended to and helping us keep the kids going strong. Bikram joined us for the trip to Gre, and was likewise focused on all the fight things, with an amazing attention to detail.

Another key point about Apex, which sets them aside from many others, is their team’s dedication to Nepal, not just to business. As any of you reading this and contemplating a trip to Nepal know (or should), Nepal is an amazing country with fabulous people, but is also a place where there are deep inequalities and often these are exploited and people who are from lower strata are not treated well, and abuses are common in the trekking industry. But, Apex is focused on fairness, and treats not only their staff, but also all others, with compassion and fairness.

I’d highly recommend Bikram and Apex to anyone contemplating a trip to Nepal – they’ve got my vote!

Excellent team, on or off the beaten track

For me it was a dream come true to go trekking in the Nepal. The nature is breathtaking, it takes no effort to surrender to the beauty. What I never expected was the incredible added value of our guide (Bikram Karki), from the first moment at the bus his energy just shined through. He has a perfect mix in trekking knowledge, personable charisma and adaptability to any situation. Every day we kept being amazed about Bikram’s spirit, for me he was the best guide we could have ever hoped for. After 7 days it feels like we’ve become friends. Throughout our trekking we visited rural schools for an education project (lairn.org) and he was able to create connections everywhere and even stepped up as a facilitator. Bikram put a smile on my face for 7 days. Apex’ coordination of the whole trekking was flawless, if I come back then I would immediately contact them again.

An unforgettable trekking experience

We were so lucky to choose Appex and to have our guide Birkam Karki! My friends and I had an unforgettable experience trekking in Nepal. First of all, the organisation from Appex was handled excellently. It was very efficient, professional and they adapted to our requests and preferences. Secondly, the Appex guides are brilliant. Our guide Bikram was fantastic, not only in terms of experience, but also in his genuine character and eye-for-detail. The guide enabled the group to enjoy every day, listen to our interests and preferences – referring to accommodation, trekking routes, meals etc – and always look for the trekking options the group would enjoy the most. When I come back to Nepal I have no doubt I’ll contact Appex again, and I won’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone travelling there.

Couldn’t imagine a better trekking experience!

Rowan (Bangkok, Thailand)
Bikram Karki and his brother Bimal facilitated a fantastic trek into the remote valleys of the Himalayas. All logistics were perfectly managed, and the cultural and geographic knowledge that Bikram provided, as our guide and friend during the trek, was excellent. Bikram’s positive vibe, friendliness and outstanding competence in mountain safety and guiding greatly enhanced the overall experience. I would highly recommend Apex and the team to any trekkers seeking a truly unique experience off the beaten track. Thanks so much Bikram and Bimal, we’ll definitely be back for more trekking with you and the Apex team!!

Amazing journey through the Phu and Nar Valleys

Ewa K (Poland)
If you dream about Nepal and unforgettable trekking in Himalayas, I can truly recommend Apex as the best on-site agency to take care of the whole logistics. Bimal and Bikram are very professional and helpful. They took care of our stay from A to Z including transfers, field trips and Annapurna trekking itself for reasonable price. They are also fun and good company to spend time with, learn about their culture and country. Amazing time and people!

Awesome trek

Jimmyleporehagan (New york city,New York)
I could spend a lot of time talking about how amazing the trek was. How we travelled for days to an isolated and tourist-free region of Nar-Phu. Or how we lived alongside amazing people from a truly special culture. How we saw stunning valleys and mystic vistas. How Bimal knew exactly what we needed and worked with us in incredible detail to learn about our interests. I could talk about the planning and the perfect execution – from flexible to small snacks in breezy fields. But in the end, the best part was meeting Bikram. I will have a friend for life. I just hope I was able to trade some of my wisdom in exchange for the mountains of knowledge I learned from him.

We opted for the 9 day Khopra ridge trek, which was beautiful. Bimal and our guide Turing were great, and really looked after us. I can’t recommend this agency enough!
