The three of us had an amazing week trekking the Langtang Valley. Norsang’s brother, Samden was our guide and was an excellent trek leader. We felt safe and supported at all times with Ganga and Maila Tamang as our porters.
This was the first time in Nepal for all of us and it was really helpful being picked up from the airport and having our first few nights arranged at Hotel Utse in Thamel.
With Samden’s encouragement, we were all able to reach Kyanjin Ri’s summit despite a 4:30 am start, snow, and mild altitude sickness.
Thanks again to Samden, Norsang, Ganga, and Maila for such a great experience and for being so helpful.
My friend Elena and me, both from Spain, decided to do the Tamang Heritage Trail Trek for 5 days with Norsang in February 2023. Thanks to a friend who did a recommendation, Norsang Lama. We contacted him and it was such a good experience. We are very thankful for having experienced these days in the middle of the mountains. It was something memorable!! Thank you Norsang, you made it easy!
Ahhh, where to even begin! We trekked the Manaslu Circuit with High Camp Trekking and the entire experience from booking the trek to the very last day was not only easy but enjoyable. When planning and booking the trek, Norsang Lama went above and beyond compared to other guide agencies that also gave me a quote. He created the most comprehensive itinerary outlining every detail. Furthermore, before I had even committed to using High Camp Trekking, Norsang showed me around Thamel directing me to the best gear stores! For the trek, we were guided by Sanjay Lama, Norsang’s brother. Sanjay Lama was a great guide and companion to have on the trail. He navigated the challenging trails gathering information from locals and other guides about trail closures and dangerous areas. With heavy monsoon rains and the changing of the seasons the trail does not always follow what is shown on paper or digital maps. Often times Sanjay would use information from locals to detour around dangerous landslide areas, something we would not have been able to do alone. Sanjay Lama also helped us connect with the place and people on a deeper level. He would share information about his religion and culture connecting it to what we were seeing and experiencing on the trail. When we stopped for lunch, reached our teahouse, or even passed a local on the trail, he would have conversations with other Nepalis and then share what he learned with us! Sanjay Lama also showed adaptability during our trek; we were supposed to do a multi-day side trip into the Tsum Valley but active landslides in the area after Lokpha forced us to change our plans. We ended up spending more time on the main circuit taking day trips to the remote Pung Gyen Gompa and the Manaslu base camp amongst other places. After the trek finished, Sanjay Lama knew that I would be in Kathmandu for another week and told me that I could reach out if I needed help with anything.
I would highly recommend using High Camp Trekking and if I ever do another trek in Nepal, I will absolutely be booking another guide through this agency.
Nous avons réalisé sur 10 jours le trek de l’Annapurnas base camp .
Une traversée tellement incroyable et fantastique . Merci à Samden notre guide, d’avoir pu faire partager ses connaissances de la montagne, de nous avoir fait goûter les spécialités locales, de nous avoir trouvé les guest houses charmantes et j’en passe.
Un professionnalisme au rendez-vous à chaque instant.
Nous avons qu’une seule envie, celle de revenir faire un trek avec high camp trekking.
Merci à Norsang pour son implication et sa bienveillance auprès de sa clientèle.
Une aventure que je vous conseille.
I did a 10-day trekking in the restricted area of the Upper Mustang with Norsang in July 2022. I had an amazing experience that is hard to render through words. Not only did he manage to get me a ghost partner to get enrolled so I could be allowed to enter this area (compulsory for non-Nepalese citizens), but he also took me to the most interesting itinerary (that which avoids roads, noise, and other inconvenience at maximum) all the while almost always responding to my demand to see the such and such place, monuments… He also proved very reliable in knowing the way and where to go… It is as though he had a map under his skin 🙂 Also very discrete and honest, a very nice companion for walking amidst nature. Not only does he know the important touristic information, but if you ask he will tell you more -but you must ask !!!:) I always felt very safe although traveling alone, and found in him a very flexible person, able to adapt to last-minute change. He even cared for me beyond the date of the trekking when I returned to Kathmandu and had no place where to stay. I will be happy to go trekking with him as soon as I can :)))
