Manaslu Circuit Trek

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.

Upper Mustang Trekking

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 :)))

My friend and I did Mardi Himal Trek.

My friend and I did the Mardi Himal Base Camp trek with Norsang for 6 days from the 31 of May to the 4th of June 2022 and we loved it. The trek was hard for us but Norsang helped us a lot. The accommodation he chose was great, with good views and very good food. On the first day, I had a fall and hurt my hand he had a first-aid kit and he treated my wound. very attentive at all times.

On the second day of the trek, my friend got sick and he couldn’t continue. After thinking about what to do, we decided that he would wait for me at the low camp, and Norsang and I would continue the trek until the end. Norsang talked to the man who run one of the lodgings in the low camp to take care of him, and he did it.

I did the rest of the trek alone with him and I felt very safe. It was a wonderful experience. He is a guide prepared both physically and psychologically. He adapted to us at every moment, we changed the dates of the trek at the last moment and he had no problem with the change. He explained a lot about the local culture, he took us to beautiful places that without him we would never have been able to know.

I recommend him, my experience was perfect.

I would like to come back to Nepal and do the Everest base camp trek and I will not hesitate to do it with him.

Thank you for everything Norsang, we hope to see you again very soon.

Take care!

Amazing Himalayan Adventure

What an incredible experience! I was lucky enough to be able to travel to Sagarmatha National Park in 2022 and experience trekking in the Himalayas. It had been a long-time dream of mine and I am so grateful that I was able to make and finish the trip.

My friend and I chose to go with High Camp Trekking for the 3 Passes Trek, our guide being Norsang. I really couldn’t have asked for a better experience. From the beginning of our contact, Norsang was very responsive to any questions I had about the upcoming trek. During the trek, Norsang demonstrated his experience by making sure we were attuned to important factors like altitude sickness, hydration, nutriton, etc. He also did well to set the pace for us, which can be challenging to get right at high elevation.

I myself have backpacked much in the United States, so I felt well prepared for the trek but decided on seeking out a guide just to be on the safe side and for the peace of mind. After the trip, I can safely say that the experience would have been much less valuable without Norsang with us. I greatly appreciated his keeping us prepared for the challenges of hiking in the area. Norsang also knew a lot of the history of the area and its culture, taking us to some notable monasteries along the way and answering many questions we had about the Everest region. It was a wonderful addition that gave me even more appreciation for the area.

Whether you are an experienced trekker or not, I can highly recommend High Camp Trekking. You will be in good hands for a world-class and unforgettable experience in the mountains.
