Bikram is a great guide who really understands needs of the clients!

We have done a “simple” 4 days poon hill trek with him. His brother Bimal was a great administration help with planning of the trip. After the planning was finished, we (2) did a tour with Bikram.

What we liked:

⁃ Bikram is way more than a regular guide. The guy has lots of degrees and really understands all your needs but also everything around mountains and Nepal. We learned s lot!
⁃ He has a medical background as well and helped us professionally with small injuries
⁃ His English is very good and he is a great entertainer as well
⁃ He knows best placed on the trek, best hotels and we always had a feeling to be in good hands with him

What could be improved:

⁃ Often he knows good accommodation on the trek but sometimes never tried other options. Challenge him, he is open to discuss!

Overall impression:

⁃ We really liked that we decided to proceed with him. He is not the cheapest one but the experience we got was unique and he contributed a lot to that! For next year we even plan to go with him to Everest base camp!

Thank you Bikram for our best holiday and for this great mountain experience!

Poon Hill Trek!

Fredrik E(Stranger,Norway)
Trek: Mount Everest Three Passes Trek, 17 days

When I came to Kathmandu I did some research about the best trekking companies in Nepal and I came across Apex Himalaya Treks and Expedition Pvt. Ltd. And without really knowing much about the other companies who operates from Kathmandu, choosing Apex is the best decision I could have made. Apex is mainly run by the two brothers Bimal and Bikram who is doing a fantastic job together.

At first I wanted to do just the classic base camp trek but then I realized the three passes was more suitable for me. When doing three passes you not only get to see Everest up close from Kala Patthar while at the same time doing the base camp, but you also get the opportunity to challenge yourself by doing the three passes and in a loop return to Lukla – where you started. The three passes: Kongma La, Cho La and Renjo La is by far the most advanced and challenging trek I have ever done in my life so a good guide is a very important factor.

I did the Three Passes with Bikram Karki and I can easily say he is by far the most professional and knowledgeable guide I have ever had the opportunity to trek with. I have done some treks before, Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu among others but this being a once in a lifetime experience and at the same time a very strenuous trek I couldn’t have wished for someone else. Besides being a guy with a good sense of humor and a never tiring smile, Bikram knows a lot about the area he is trekking in, this is his life for sure. He was raised in the mountains and this is his passion so naturally it shines through to you as a client in every way possible. Among Bikrams many positive abilities I would mention: excellent client/customer service – he knows how to treat his clients in the best way possible from day one all the way to the end, expertise as a guide not only when it comes to proper acclimatization but also in interpreting his environment and making the best decisions for his clients, being very responsive and always listening while at the same time also always eager to learn something new and his ability to make you feel right at home – even though you are trekking the Himalaya.

Bikram is aiming high in life and I wish him all the best in his future endeavours, not the least which is climbing Mount Everest next year.

Before I decided on going with Apex I met up with Bikrams brother Bimal at their office in Thamel to discuss the itinerary among other things. I knew right away that these guys know what they are doing. Bimal is very communicative and easy to talk to. He has excellent customer service abilities, answering e-mails faster than I could even write. I had a lot of questions before my trek, but I never felt that Bimal got tired of all my questions and he answered everyone of them with precise and good knowledge. He also took the time to guide me through Thamel to buy the last things on my packing list so that I came as prepared as possible for this trek. Bimal was also present during our entire trek via phone with his brother, coordinating from the office and updating his brother with important information.

When it comes to the trek itself, one word: amazing. I have never seen views quite like it and we had fantastic weather almost the whole trip. I would recommend doing the three passes in november to early december, even though its cold the air is totally crisp and the peaks – which you came to see – are as clear as the blue sky. We slept in tea houses and ate very good food along the way, met wonderful people and had a great time. I will remember this for the rest of my life.

I know how hard it is to make a decision which company to go with in the end, someone like me always tries to weigh in every positive aspect against the negative – but trust me on this one – choosing Apex will not disappoint you. You are in for the trip of a lifetime and having the very best tailoring and excecuting the trek towards your personal wishes is a privelige not to be missed.

Thank you!

Regards,
Fredrik

Three Passes Trek – Best trek in my life with an extraordinary guide

I completed the Everest Base Camp 12 day trek. I was very pleased with Apex Himalaya from end to finish. Bimal was communicative before my arrival and staff met me at the airport and stayed with me through the duration. Bimal the guide was attentive and stayed the course. I was determined but slow. I highly recommend Apex and Bimal, I would communicate withhim and get all clarification required. Go prepared and they make it possible to complete the trek at your pace.

I’ve known these two brothers for the past three years and they have always been an integral part of my Nepali experience.

I am so appreciative for the guidance I received before I set off for Everest or the selfless helping hand before I left for Annapurna.

If you’re looking for the right guide, look no further. These guys don’t just guide as a day job, they live it.

Awesome brothers, great hospitality and trekking experience.

From the start Apex Himalaya Trek and Tour was professional, enthusiastic and willing to make adjustments to meet our needs.
While first searching for a trekking agency Apex was the only company to respond to our emails in a timely fashion. Bimal kept in contact with us from our initial inquiry to the day before the trek when we met with him to go over the details of our adventure.
Our guide Bikram was absolutely outstanding. His love of the mountains and enthusiasm for his job showed every day. He was very knowledgeable from the culture of the people to the nature that surrounded us.
For my next Nepal adventure Apex will be my only choice for guiding services.

ABC trekking experience exceeded expectations

Elvira and Frank
In 2014, I once had the pleasure of using the services of the brothers Bikram and Bimal Karki of Apex Himalaya for my trek around the Manaslu. Since I have the time with Bikram very well remembered, it was obvious again AH to organize the organization and implementation of our this year’s trekking project
12 days we were together with Bikram in the upper mustang and we enjoyed this time very much. Already in advance, our wishes were implemented perfectly and transparently by Bimal. Despite the great distance, the communication is very timely and the flight to Nepal happens with a sure feeling.
Although not everything went according to plan during the trek caused by external circumstances, Bimal always had a good alternative immediately. Because of his honest and open nature towards his fellow human beings, there are very nice contacts and opportunities that characterize this time together. Also for someone who likes to take pictures, he is a perfect companion.
Many Thanks

Dhanyabad!!!! Apex Himalaya

Bimal and Ganesh organised a wonderful trek for our graduation trip. We signed up for a trek to Annapurna base camp, which lasted for 8 days. They settled all the permits, food, logistics and transport. The service was excellent, they were always thoughtful and polite. Bimal even ordered a room for us when we were waiting around for our flight on the last day. I highly recommend Apex Himalayas!

Thanks to Bimal & Bikram and everyone else from Apex Himalaya, we had an amazing time in Nepal. They provide a very professional service and do their utmost best to make your stay unforgettable.

Same compliments to our guide Tshiring, who managed to find solutions to all complications that we faced during our Manaslu trek.

We are already looking forward to our next visit to Nepal and to seeing all those great people again!
