Best trek and travel company in Nepal
While I was making plans for a trip to Nepal, I accidentally encountered By Mountain People on Instagram. I liked what I saw and I started corresponding with, Govinda, the owner. Over several weeks, Govinda helped me put together an itinerary that met my needs. My biggest worry was, given my age (65), whether or not I was physically fit enough for the 8 day Mohare Danda trek that Govinda proposed. He was positive that I was capable and would enjoy this trek. He wasn’t wrong! One of the things I really appreciate is that, although this company is smaller than some others, they really pay attention to the details and take care of their clients. At every point during my trip, Gopal (Govinda’s brother) made sure I had the right equipment, was on the right bus or taxi, and comfortable in the hotels they chose for me. My modified 8-day Mohare Danda trek was the absolutely best part of my entire month in Nepal. The first day, I was struggling to keep going for the 4-1/2 climb to our first stopping point. My guide Susis kept me going, let me rest when I needed, and encouraged me to complete that first day. After that, I acclimated and my legs got stronger and each day got easier for me. I was impressed with Susis’s knowledge of the mountains and the villages and the people of the Annapurna sanctuary. He kept me healthy by recommending good hydration, good diet, good rest, and early starts so we could finish our day’s trek ahead of any possible afternoon or evening thunderstorms. By the end of this trek, I felt like I could walk another week and wished I had more time to keep exploring the mountains. It was an awesome experience! By Mountain People also arranged for a short 2 day trip to Chitwan, with local guided safaris, which was a great introduction the animal life of the terai lowlands. This was my first visit to Nepal and it was a wonderful success because of the great people who are By Mountain People. Thank you Susis, Gopal, and Govinda for helping me have such an outstanding vacation in Nepal. I plan on taking another trip with By Mountain People next year.
