We did complete the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) with High Camp Trekking in October 2014 and were very impressed with the service they provided. We initially got in touch with Norsang via email and everything was laid out clearly including price, itinerary, inclusions and exclusions and the different options available to us with the time we had. He was very flexible with dates and constructing and itinerary that would suit our schedule. We had initially booked for Everest Base Camp – but we only had limited days and knew that if we couldn’t fly in on day 1 or 2 that it wouldn’t be possible to complete it in the time we had available. Unfortunately we had bad weather and couldn’t fly into Lukla- so last minute the itinerary was changed to go to ABC – with no hassle at all. We completed the trek with his brother Sanjay- who was absolutely amazing! Nothing was too much trouble and he was very easy to get along with. Some days we would be setting a great pace and others we were slower and it was no issue. Even with the last minute change of plans he was able to get us accommodation every night including up at Base Camp- despite it being a very busy time of year. Our porter- Wongju was also lovely. He enjoyed a game of Uno at night with us and was always a friendly face. After our trip we were lucky enough to have a home cooked meal with Sanjay, Norsang and their family which really topped off an amazing adventure, I have no hesitation in recommending High Camp trekking for your adventure in Nepal and would be happy to answer any questions people may have regarding the company. Thanks again! Hope to see you on another adventure soon!
It was our 2nd trekking experince with High Camp Trekking Company and Norsang Lama was our trekking guide for both treks. We went on Poon Hill Trek in May 2013 and returned on year later (May 2014) for EBC. During out first enquiry on Poon Hill trek, High Camp Trekking was the first trekking company to respond and the replies were all very prompt and informative. Norsang has been a wonderful guide for both treks. He can answer all questions, from mountains, to birds, flowers, and many more. He is very patient and helpful to bring us around to get our trekking equipment and ensure we have the necessary and proper equipment. During our EBC trek, he will ask how we were feeling, to identify if we were suffering altitude illness. He even take note the day we started on Diamox and inform us when to stop. He ensures that we have sufficient rest and food and water intake. Both trips could not be any safer and enjoyable without Norsang. We highly recommend Hgih Camp Trekking Company. we will definitely trek with High Camp Trekking for our 3rd trip!
You can DM me on our exprience with High Camp Trekking.
A trekking adventure in Nepal was one of the most awaited moments of our round the world trip. Before we left for out travels a friend gave us Norsang’s contact and told us to get in touch with him should we need a guide in Nepal. We trusted our friend’s advise and decided to do the Annapurna Base Camp Trek with High Camp Trekking in April 2014. The contact with Norsang was smooth and efficient. Even before meeting him we could tell we were dealing with a very professional person. Norsang picked us up from the Airport and then let us in the hands of Sanjay, his older brother and our guide for the trek, and Rejendra, our young and super fit porter. Together with Sanjay and Rajendra we spent 13 wonderful days. The trek was absolutely amazing. Every day of the trek was perfectly organized, the lodges were clean and comfortable, the food was tasty and the daily schedule always allowed us some free time to rest and visit the villages where we stayed. Sanjay is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a lot of questions about Nepal and the Himalayas, thanks to him we learned many things about this beautiful country. Sanjay always walked at a comfortable pace so that we were never too tired at the end of the day and fit for the next. Rajendra is a very fine and strong you man. Even if his English is very basic we still managed to communicate with him and appreciated his company during the trek. We met Norsang again after the trek in Kathmandu and he helped us to extend our visa. We cannot thank High Camp Trekking enough for their kindness and professionalism. We highly recommend their services and if one day we come back to Nepal we will certainly do another trekking with them!
I went trekking the EBC with Norsang, Parkasn and a group of helpful, friendly porters last year, that was 2013. I went on traveling until the end of March, 2014. Now, I recall the whole experience and keep amaze how well Norsang have organized our trip and thinking of returning to Nepal to further on going to another trekking with them.
We decided to go trekking with Norsang after trawling online forums for recommendations. We chose the Annapurna Circuit for a 16 days trek in February 2014. After contacting a number of possible independent guides and companies, Norsang provided the most comprehensive and detailed response with a background of our kit requirements, route to be taken what was or was not included and transport details. We requested some small changes to our itinerary (walking a section instead of taking a bus). Norsang was quite flexible and proposed an alternate plan that did what we wanted. Along the way we both found Norsang to be a very good guide with plenty of experience and a good head for making decisions on the trail but also a good host and a wealth of information about the local environment, culture, history, religion, politics and Nepal in general. He is also a great guy to get on with and speaks good English. Norsang was a great guide and the way the trek was structured with included food and accommodation made our live a lot easier and more straightforward when things got a little tougher. During our trek we had many comments (compliments) from others with and without guides that we had been lucky with our choice of guide and after 2 weeks on the road in various conditions I have to agree!
