Island Peak 6173m, a stunning mountain in the Everest region could be climbed in just one day.  Challenges to conquer the peak best suits the novice climbers however, skilled mountaineers can enjoy to the fullest during the expedition of Island Peak.  The trial to Island Peak cross passes culturally unique Sherpa hamlets and lush vegetation to barren yet, dramatically contrast snowy and rocky landscapes dominated by towering peaks. Proper acclimatization during the trek to Island Peak and caring guidance by veteran Sherpa climbers makes you feel very special throughout the trek. On reaching the summit of Island Peak which is one of the vantage points for the close-up view of high peaks of the Everest region, climber excitement simply goes to the highest limit.

Autumn 2013, Mr. Clement Irbil and Mr. Rasmus Hansen from Denmark successfully made to the summit of Island Peak. Earlier to this, they conquered Pokhalde Peak . The climbers from our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel shared their experiences of the trek and Island Peak Expedition.

Standing on the top of Island Peak,!WOW!, the memory that would remain forever. We would rate our host 5 stars for providing us an incredible holiday in the mountains of Everest Region.

The trip to Nepal began perfectly. The city staffs of the company were professional, helpful, flexible and smooth. The hospitality we experienced was amazing. Hotel rooms and food were great.

The guide and the staffs during the trek were exceptionally good, highly experienced and helpful. We would specially thank our guides Temba Sherpa and Lhakpa. The expedition to Island Peak became easier and more interesting with their wonderful support.

Chitwan, Pokhara and Samari: Destinations to experience to wildlife, nature and rural lifestyle of Nepal

Posted Nov 27th, 2013 under Testimonial,

Chitwan National Park is the one of  closest wildlife reserves from Kathmandu. One hundred and twenty six kilometers from Kathmandu the park, is the home for wide diversity of plants and animals which includes endangered species like Royal Bengal Tiger, One-horned Rhino, Gangetic Dolphin and Ghariyal crocodile. The adventurous highlight at Chitwan is to experience the wild abode at its best during the Wildlife Elephant Safari. The culture of Tharu ethnic in the region is also another highlight of the park.

Unlike Chitwan, Pokhara is the city well known for its tempting natural beauties. Lakes, caves, falls, rivers and gorges are scattered throughout the city. The scenic view of Himalayas including Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri flanked by the most unique virgin mountain Fishtail can be observed from different angles from different Mountain View-points in Pokhara.

Home-stays are also very popular tourist activities in Nepal. A beautiful middle hill village Samari, in the Central Nepal is a popular home-stay destination. Samari is closely located to Kathmandu. An opportunity to experience  the rural lifestyle and culture by staying in the houses of local villagers can be the best way to have insightful look into Nepalese lives.

Different locations, diverse highlights and contrasting funs, this holiday package address those who wish to travel around Nepal to see most of it. Four Danish travelers were on this trip this autumn. The guests through our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel had a wonderful time here in Nepal. Mr. Daniel Fischer and Ms. Birgit Brammer said few lines on their cultural tour to Nepal and service of Explore Himalaya.

Ms. Birgit and Mr. Wilsdahl

We have several memorable memories. However, the guided hikes to the villages nearby Kathmandu as well as in Pokhara and Samari, canoeing and Elephant Safari in Chitwan and the beautiful views of mountainous landscapes from Pokhara were the most amazing parts of this trip.

Talking about your service everything was smooth, on time and very professional. All our expectations were met. Guides were kind and competent. Staffs took very good care of us and we felt secure all the time. Explore Himalaya did a great job by allocating one of your staffs to accompany us during the Election scenario in Nepal. You offered us excellent service and handling throughout the trip. Thank you so much.

Mr. and Ms. Fischer

The best memory of our trip was Wildlife Safari in Chitwan. It is one of the most amazing things we have ever done.

Langtang Trek: Shortest approach to Himalayas

Posted Nov 25th, 2013 under Testimonial,

Nineteen miles north of Kathmandu, Langtang Valley nestles in the shadow of Langtang Lirung [7246m], the highest peak in the region. The trek along the valley which borders Tibet is the closest to snowy mountains from Kathmandu. After nine hours drive you get to Syabrubenshi, the trek starting point for the Langtang Valley. Following the trail upstream Bhote Koshi river through ethnic Tibeto-Tamang villages, lush vegetation and the wide spread Kyangin valley surrounded by snowy peaks from all  sides, takes you up to Kyangin at 3800 meter, where you get an opportunity to ascend Kyangjin Ri [4350m.], for 3600 panoramic view of the mountains.

Mr. John Christensen led nineteen Danish trekkers to Langtang Valley this November. Mr. John on the behalf of the group through our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel wrote a few lines on the trek and Explore Himalaya’s service.

Working together with our guide Pasang Sherpa and the other staffs to accomplish the trek is the best memory of the trek. Sabin, our Tour Officer handled the group very well with the best hotel, transportation and other facilities throughout the trip.

I would recommend the fellow trekkers to simply enjoy the trek as the guides and staffs of Explore Himalaya are extremely good to make your trip in Nepal extraordinary.

The fantastic mountain views throughout the trek and the pleasant people living in the region were very nice. Mountains and the people of the mountains in Everest Region are very hard to forget. Both were equally amazing.

Staffs of Explore Himalaya were professionals. We had two rescue operations which were performed so swiftly that everyone was amazed. Ram, our guide did a very good job. Thanks to him and Explore Himalaya, we had a great holiday.
