Magnificent slow trek and bird watching to Khopra Danda! Magnificent trek!! In October 2023 the two of us did this beautiful trek organized by BMP. It all started 6 months earlier, when I was looking for a company that would put people first in organizing treks in Nepal. What a nice coincidence when I learned that Govinda, a former language student of mine, happened to be the owner of By Mountain People, an organization that had customized and small scale treks as its core business! We had very nice and informative preparative talks about our wishes. Being almost 70 years of age, we wanted to have sufficient possibilities to adapt our journey on the way, in case the altitude would cause problems. Also we wanted to visit places off the beaten track and see something of village life on the way. Govinda suggested the Khopra Danda trek with some extra days so we could shorten the daily walking distance. This was a very good advice and he organized it very well! We met Govinda again in Kathmandu before we started out. He introduced us to our guide Pratap Gurung. Pratap was really a very excellent guide!! His knowledge of the natural surroundings and especially of the birds were truly amazing!! He was very attentive to our wellbeing and patiently answered our many questions. He taught us so much about the different species and habitats of all the birds he would point out to us. His experience made that we always felt safe and well looked after. Also we learnt that Govinda stayed regularly in contact to ensure that everything went well. Following our 2 weeks of trekking, BMP also organized an extra 4 days visit to Chitwan National Park. Here we stayed in the nice Safari Club hotel. Her also we were very happy with our guide Yadav Duwadi He is a nice and calm guide with a lot of knowledge and very attentive. We absolutely recommend this “slow trekking” by BMP! Specially for senior travellers such as us, but also for everybody who wants to fully enjoy the beauty of the Himalayas. A guide such as Pratap Gurung was perfectly suited for this type of trekking. Thank you BMP!! Thijl and Linda
Tilicho Lake and Annapurna Circuit I went on a 19-day trek on the Annapurna Circuit. I had great communication with Lily and Govinda before arriving in Nepal and throughout my trip. They shared with me all the information that I needed. Ganesh, and a porter, Nima. Both of them were incredibly kind. They literally held my hand through the toughest parts of the trek and we also had lots of fun playing cards, sharing anecdotes and trying to learn each other’s languages. The Annapurna circuit itself is incredibly beautiful and diverse. Since I arrived at the end if the monsoon season there were still some rains and landslides which made the days at lower altitudes a little tricky but once we started to ascend the weather changed and we had wonderful views of the mountains on this range and visited several Tibetan towns and Gompas. Overall, I had a great experience with them I would take a trip again with them in a heartbeat. Thanks, Ganesh, Nima, Lily, and Govinda!
Small but super professional trekking company! Wish we could go back already! Govinda and Lilly just went above and beyond for my friend and I!! Shortly before arriving in Nepal, I started experiencing knee pain. I got so worried about the trek, but they changed our itinerary without any fuss whatsoever. They got us the most caring and knowledgeable trekking guide Ganesh. And they checked in with me frequently during the trek, to check if I was doing ok and enjoying. After the trek they even organized a very nice jungle safari to Chitwan NP for us. Their great tips and flexible attitude before and during our trip made it a HUGE succes!! Govinda and Lily thank you so much for your patience and helpful advice. I will be back for sure!
Otrolig resa i Nepal Vi hade en jättebra resa i Nepal! Govinda på By Mountain People var superhjälpsam med att tillgodese våra önskemål och att skräddarsy en resplan som passade oss perfekt. Han såg till att vi fick med alla våra önskemål. Vi hann med vandring i de fantastiska bergen samt en otrolig dag med fågelsådning strax utanför Kathmandu. Jag kan verkligen rekommendera By Mountain People om du vill ha en unik upplevelse!
Father and son Nepal trek By mountain people organised an incredible trip through Gokyo Lake and EBC. Everything ran smoothly, they took care of all the little details and genuinely care about you and your experience throughout. Handled everything with a smile and extreme professionalism – can not recommend them enough! Our amazing guide Ganesh is the reason we can look back on the trek successfully, he helped us at every step and is an all round great guy – be sure to ask for Ganesh he will make your trip unforgettable I cannot wait to book again:)
Annapurna Circuit Wir waren im März 2019 in Nepal mit dem Ziel den Annapurna Circuit Trek zu durchlaufen. Zum Glück erhielten wir den Kontakt zu der Organisation bymountainpeople mit Gopal und Govinda. Mit der Hilfe von Gopal und später unserem Guide Raj wurden wir super vorbereitet, ausgestattet und hatten schließlich sehr schöne 14 Tage rund um Annapurna und co. Der Trek, mit dem Thorong la Pass auf 5400m als Highlight, ist ein Abenteuer das man so schnell nicht mehr vergisst. Jeder Schritt lohnt sich ! Wir würden jederzeit wieder bei bymountainpeople buchen! Schon in der Vorbereitung gingen beide auf alle unserer (1000…) Fragen und Wünsche ein und so wurden wir super vorbereitet. Mit den richtigen Tipps , toller Ausstattung und unglaublich freundlicher Betreuung konnten wir unsere Tour starten. Unser Guide Raj verstand es perfekt auf uns einzugehen und uns die Menschen und die Natur näherzubringen. Mit seiner Hilfe schafften wir es überglücklich den 5400m hohen Thorong la Pass zu überwinden. Es waren 16 grandiose Tage, Ein Abenteuer das man so schnell nicht mehr vergisst. Jeder Schritt lohnt sich ! Wir würden jederzeit wieder bei bymountainpeople buchen!
By Mountain People made hour 16 day Himalaya trekking (Gokyo-EBC) feel comfortable! After booking a flight to Nepal my girlfriend and I decided that we wanted to book our own domestic flight aswell and search for a porterguide after arriving at Lukla airport. Then when we started looking on the internet and we found out that is was not so simple to do this online. Thru Instagram we met Govinda and met him in a couple of times in the Netherlands. We talked about all this and he than took care of this. When we arrived at Lukla airport in the Himalaya, Ganesh was waiting for us with a sign, he was our porterguide for the 16 day trekking (Gokyo and EBC). Ganesh would always made shure we had a place to sleep and with toilets inside the building. He is an amazing guy, always happy and knows so much to tell about the trekking (hours, hight, peaks etc.) He even teached us a couple of Nepali games! Ganesh felt like a brother and a good friend to us and that will never change. All of this effort by the team, made us feel so comfortable and relaxed doing this very exiting trekking. We will back in Nepal for some more trekking with By Mountain People. Because of the personal touch by Govinda we will remain friends and keep seeing each other in the Netherlands.
What an adventure! Everest Base Camp was on my bucket list for quite some time. And to be honest, I was a little bit worried whether I would be able to do it. I don’t have that much experience with hiking. Just in Europe. Thanks to the owner Govinda and his wonderful team I can finally say I DID IT!! By Mountain People is a small company but very professional and experienced. They really took time to inform me to make sure I got myself prepared properly. And they answered allll of my questions. (And I had a LOT of them.) 🙂 🙂 During the trek my guide always made sure I was feeling good and not crossing my limits. I absolutely recommend this company to anyone who is looking for adventure but wants to make sure that you’re taken care of too. And I hope I can come back to Nepal for another trekking. One thing’s sure: I will do that with this company. Thank you!! You’re the best!
Amazing customized trekking! We had a blast on our customized trekking around Mohare and Khopra! We had several meetings with Govinda beforehand to talk about our wishes, fitness level and expectations, and he used all that information to create an itinerary that fits us. And he did a great job! We felt safe all the time with the provided guide and Govinda kept in touch with him all the time to make sure everything went well. We had an unforgettable experience, and we’re sure we will be back in Nepal to do more trekkings with By Mountain People!
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.
Organised an incredible trip through Nepal: Gokyo Lake and EBC. Organised everything for us and made the entire experience smooth and unforgettable. Our guide Ganesh and our Porter Ganga were lifesavers – they helped us every step along the way, they are the reason we look back on a successful trip with such fondness. Bymountainpeople are perfect for anyone looking to trek in Nepal and be sure to ask for Ganesh!
Great team! I will come back again.
Trekking in Mustang was amazing. Well organized!
