“ I was lucky and mostly blessed to have met Suraj and his team right in my first trip to Nepal. If you want to explore and discover Nepal in a safe , friendly and most honest way… Suraj is definitely your guy. His long experience in rescue and with all Hymalayun pioneers (including himself) made his company a safe base for a trip to beautiful Nepal!. I highly recommend 6 stars”

We had an absolutely amazing time in the Himalayas and it would not have been possible without Suraj’s help. We were there to have a trip of a life time but needed someone trustworthy to partner with. Suraj having lived in the US for many years was a natural fit.
Returning safely and in 1 piece to our kids was non-negotiable. Suraj was proactively looking out for us helping prevent altitude sickness. We even got a mid trip health checkup in Dingboche just to be sure.
We did not want to stick to a rigid itinerary and wanted to be flexible in our travel plans. On day 10 of our trip we were exhausted and needed a extra rest day to recover and recuperate. Suraj was able to accommodate our change request and make necessary logistical changes instantly.
Suraj assembled an incredible team – Pasang Dawa Sherpa (Everest 26 times), Tenzing Dorjee Sherpa (Guiness Book of World Record holder Everest 13 times), Pema Temba Sherpa (Everest, K2) to help us climb Lobuche East. Summiting Lobuche with was an indescribable experience.
On day 15 one of our friends developed a serious case of the Khumbu cough and needed to be evacuated out of Gokyo. Suraj was quickly able to arrange for a rescue chopper at a reasonable price.
We did not want to be nickeled and dimmed but also did not want to be taken advantage of. Suraj was up front about the expenses and there were no hidden fees/surprises later. It was a priceless trip for a fair price.
I couldnt recommend Suraj enough for your next Himalayan Adventure.Rabi GautamAspiring Mountaineer Dallas,TX
