Things You Should Know?
We just completed our Thamserku Expedition together with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We are very pleased to have done this trip with NGT !! Top-level of service and devoted personnel is what impressed us a lot. Everyone in the team was very cooperative and helpful. We are very glad that we choose Nepal Guide Treks for this expedition. Our climbing guide was Sumek Adhikari who was very helpful and full of technical climbing knowledge. We learned a lot about technical climbing from him. It felt really good to stand on the summit with close views of high mountains. With our open hearts, we recommend Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for serious climbing such as Thamserku and any other kinds of adventure related activities in Nepal.
Good Luck for the future?

We are a group of 3 people from Finland. We booked our Thamserku Expedition with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We must say that we are very thankful to the whole Nepal Guide trek’s team for providing us such an excellent service even prior and after the trip. We have absolutely no complaints about the team’s performance. Everyone was very polite, humble and caring.
Our guide was Dendi Sherpa – a young man with good technical climbing knowledge. Many thanks to his guidance to the summit of Mt. Thamserku. We have some nice pictures and memories from the Thamserku summit.
Some say, the quest of climbing just gets higher and higher, it might just be true !!
Now we really feel like climbing peaks that demands even more technical climbing skills and offers unlimited challenges.
We would like to come back and do more climbing with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition in the near future !!
Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions !!! Highly Recommended !!!
Thanks once again NGT !!
