We’ll also make you familiar with the well-known myth of Yeti and who knows you might just see one too!

Being in the Himalayas has obvious challenging in addition to the routes, such as high altitude, weather and other conditions; any of these situations is able to compromise your trip. Guiding the steep hills and rocky routes is not a job for common guides. Himalayan Magic Treks has been providing native guides and staffs for many years, they are trained to overcome any challenges and make your trip a memorable one.

Security is our primary concern! From your first day in Nepal where we will be there to pick you up with our staff, to the day of your departure where we will drop you at the airport, we are always there to help you. During your trek we will have the proper safety gear and professional staff. This includes a first aid kit, oxygen bag and helicopter service for emergency rescue whenever trekkers get physical sick or show signs of altitude sickness. We also include acclimatization days on your trek in order to minimize your risk of altitude sickness
Summer (June - August) and Winter (December - February), although summer brings heavy monsoon rainfall it is typically very clear in the Mustang, Dolpo and Nar- Phu valleys since they are rain shadow areas. Tibet is also a favorable area for trekking if this is of interest. Everest, Langtang and Annapurna regions are always good for trekking even in the winter season.
Trekking in Nepal and specifically for views of Mount Everest on the Base Camp Trek does not require much experience, although the route is challenging compared to Annapurna, our itinerary includes only walking comfortable distances. Trekking in the Himalayas always takes us to altitude and he sometimes rocky routes demands proper rest time and acclimatization to sustain your strength. We always ensure we allow time for both in our itinerary. Certain pre-training like running, skipping and other cardio workouts will definitely help you in the long run.
Altitude sickness is a significant risk factor when trekking on any trails above 2500 meters. Good health, proper care and drinking plenty of water will definitely help you to prevent your chances of getting altitude sickness. Every trekker needs to be comfortable with the elevations so for this we have built in acclimatization days during the trek and on all peak climbing and expeditions. We also provide certain medical support for your comfort and emergency rescue via helicopter whenever the situation requires it.
We only leave foot prints! Himalayan Magic Treks is very concerned about the environmental pollution and global warming. We are very serious about our collection and disposal of garbage during the trek especially when camping. We collect all the rubbish and deposit it in the proper place to protect our environment. We also partake in a program called KEEP Kathmandu Environmental Education Project.
Profit is not our only priority! We have been helping some of our fellow villagers from different corners of Nepal to sustain their social life and help them with education and required materials. We are always looking for interested candidates to provide a helping hand to support, inspire and enable them to create a better future for themselves.

My experience:I decided to go to Nepal on a bit of a whim. My good friends Suzanne and George had convinced me that I would love it and that the people at Himalayan Magic Treks were the best to help me plan my trip. Everyone (including me!) was surprised when I decided on September 2 to leave on September 22!I e-mailed Himalayan Magic Treks and by the next morning I had received an itinerary, including a guide and a porter and a week of teaching English in the remote village of Basa had been arranged. I confirmed my flights with Gopal and he assured me that my guide was the best (his son, Gadjendra), my porter was the best (their good friend, Gaurab). The guide, porter, accommodations, meals and coffee were all included in the price.
When I arrived at the airport in Kathmandu I was tired and a bit nervous, but as soon as I stepped out the airport doors, Gopal and Gadjendra were there to welcome me! Not only did they have a garland of flowers and a Himalayan Magic Treks sign, they also had a car and driver waiting and a hotel and dinner booked. From those first hours, when I took a warm shower in Kathmandu and had a nice dinner with Gopal, I felt confident that I would be well taken care of. Little did I know how well!
During the entire duration of this amazing trip, I was never asked to pay for any lodging or food during the hikes. Gadjendra discreetly and effectively took care of all the negotiations, bookings, last minute changes to my itinerary, ordering meals and even tea and coffee. Gaurab took my bag up to my room at every new tea house and picked it up in my room at every departure. Gaurab and Gadjendra never let me out of their sight unless I was happily chatting with a friend of theirs or had retired to my room. On the trails they made sure that we stayed together. In contrast to other tourists, who relied on their maps and good senses, we never got lost. When we arrived in Basa, I was warmly welcomed by my hosts and their children as well as by the school and the community. Needless to say that our arrival had been tracked along the trails of the Himalaya for a few days!
At the school I soon found that these beautiful children would learn very little from me without some help from an interpreter. Gadjendra was amazing! We gave classes together and, to a very large extent, he spent as much energy and time as I did – both in the classroom and in preparations.The trek out of the Himalaya, from Basa to Jiri was as sad as it was wonderful. By then Gadjendra, Gaurab and I were good friends. We had fun hiking and we took a lot of pictures! We hung our numerous prayer scarves on bridges and near stupas at the top of the trails.
We arrived in Jiri in the rain and were told by many tourists that it was impossible to get a bus to Kathmandu, but by then I was confident in Himalayan Magic Treks ability to do anything. Within an hour, Gadjendra and Gaurab had us booked in a compact van to Kathmandu at 6 am the next day. A much smoother ride than in the big crowded busses!
In Kathmandu, Gopal met us at the (very nice!) hotel and invited me to eat at his home. Gadjendra - who must have been exhausted by then! – came with me back to Tamil district to shop for souvenirs and ensure that I got the best deals. We then all went to dinner at a traditional Nepalese restaurant.
Gopal and Gadjendra were even there to see me off at the airport at 7 the next morning. My heart was heavy as I boarded the plane and still is more than a week later.
Without Gadjendra I would have experienced Nepal as an isolated outsider miming my way to ensuring my survival. With his patient, gracious and generous help, I was able to be a guest in local family homes, sit around the fire and listen to grandmothers and grandfathers tell stories and give advice. I was able to play with the kids and have very enriching conversations with community leaders. With Gajendra as a tireless interpreter and cultural guide, I made a lot of friends!
By the end of my time in Basa my heart was full of these bright children’s laughter and smiles. I had learnt a few words of Nepali and they had learnt (to their credit) an impressive amount of English. I felt like Basa had let me in and shared a part of its self with a clumsy tourist. To know the magic of Nepal, you have to have been there. It would not be fair of me to try to explain the wind, the cucumbers, the children playing, the cool clear night sky or the fireflies. Nor could I ever do justice to the sight of a snowy peak at the end of a long climb or to the sound of clear rushing rivers roaring under a foot bridge.
To have been there is to carry Nepal in your heart.
Thanks to Himalayan Magic Treks I had a life-changing experience in Nepal. I will never forget the new friends I made and I will forever be grateful to Gadjendra, Gaurab and HMT for making it all happen!
Love, love, love
