I am a terrible review writer so this will be short and sweet.

I Decided on a solo trip to Nepal during monsoon sesaon to do the Annapurna Circuit. Norsang and Samden from High Camp Trekking are the most wonderful and accommodating people i could have hoped to trek with.

Their knowledge, empathy, safety considerations and willingness to understand the trekkers needs is second to none.

If I could rate them 100 stars I would.

I will be returning to trek them again hopefully sooner rather than later.

Thank you Norsang and Samden and hope to see you soon!

Mardi Himal 6 days trek

Mardi Himal

December 15, 2017

We had a wonderful time in Nepal with Norsang Lama as a guide and Biren as a porter in the first week of November 2017. Initially we were supposed to go to Everest side and because of bad weather conditions we couldn’t fly to Lukla. Since our timing was tight, he offered to do an alternative trek in the Annapurna: Mardi Himal. He organized everything in few hours and we were able to depart to Pokhara the day after. During all the trek, Norsang made sure that we had a room in all the tea house, adjusted the pace to ours, took care of us and shared his 20 years experience of the mountain and his knowledge of Nepal with us. We particularly appreciated that he adjusted the program on the spot. Since we could finish a bit earlier the Mardi Himal trek, he added additional stay and visit in Pokhara : we could enjoy the stunning panoramic view from the uphill Stupa! So if you want to have an amazing experience in the Nepal mountains, do not hesitate to contact Norsang.

Amazing Norsang was at guiding us through the ABC trek.

Annapurna Base Camp
David & Chloe
February 15, 2017

We completed Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) trek with Norsing Lama of High Camp Trekking, January 2017. This was our first proper trek and from the reviews we decided that we would meet up with Norsang and discuss trekking ABC, in mid winter. He was overly helpful from the get go. As we both live in Vietnam we didn’t own any proper trekking equipment and essential items (apart from boots which we had previously warn in). He sat down and went through in great detail the daily itinerary and wrote us an extensive list of what we should purchase on the trek. He filled us with great confidence due to his depth of knowledge, fluent English ability and amazing personality. Follow his advice and buy every thing he suggests as we ended up using every thing on the list. The trek was 9 days in total and 2 days travel. We found parts of the trek challenging due to the weather (ice and snow) and steep up downs, and the fact you would be trekking between 5-8 hours per day (we were slow trekkers). This hard work paid off. The landscapes, nature and scenery were phenomenal and words can’t describe how beautiful and enormous the mountains were. The trek covered many different terrains including jungle, tea terraces, valleys and mountain passes. It was so beautiful and there is no way you can’t love this trek. The tea houses are basic but offer a good variety of food. Most teahouses offered comfy enough beds and after a full day trekking we fell to sleep very early every night. Norsang was incredible the entire trek. He speaks in fluent English with a clear accent. He taught us so much about the mountains, local and national culture and politics as well as lots of very interesting information about the trek. Without his knowledge it would of been no where near as enjoyable. He does everything he can to make trek as rewarding as possible. He is a very patient person and allowed us excessive breaks. By the end of the trek he has become a friend. I can’t emphasise enough how amazing Norsang was at guiding us through the ABC trek. I wish him all the best for the future and hope that many more people get to experience what we did.

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Samden and Ganga Tamang

November 15, 2016

In Oct 2016, my wife and I engaged Samden (guide) and Ganga (porter) through High Camp Trekking for a 13 day Annapurna Circuit trek. Norsang from HCT and Samden came to our hotel and were very thorough explaining what to expect, checking that we had adequate gear, how to stay healthy & fit for the trek. Norsang was helpful & responsive by email prior to our trip. Samden & Ganga took great care of us from when we commenced our journey by public bus from Kathmandu through to our farewell in Jomsom. Daily, Samden checked how we were, suggested good distances to walk, gave helpful caring useful advice. Samden knew the trek very well, giving a good overview & insights for each day, highlighting places along the way & always helpfully answering questions. They were always cheerful with a good sense of humour. Samden has a very caring nature. We were able to develop a good relationship with both Samden & Ganga and recommend them along with Norsang.
