Client Reviews

  • enjoyable trek

    The Bimthang Manaslu hike was enjoyable and varied with many mountain views, even if the weather was mixed during the climb. The hike was fantastic and difficult, but it was well worth it in every way, despite the difficulties. Everything was well-organized, and our guide was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, making the trek significantly more enjoyable.

  • Great vacation

    We spent a great week in Nepal, which was properly organized by Mountain Rock Treks, and we trekked with a hilarious and experienced guide named Gopal. All flights and accommodations were pre-booked, and thanks to the beautiful weather, hiking was a lot of fun. We've been really well taken care of. We had a fantastic view of Maanslu from the Larkya la pass. I would strongly suggest them to anyone looking for a stress-free vacation in Nepal. Inquire with Mountain Rock Treks.
