What can we say except WOW- what a trip!! Thank you all for organising, it was truly amazing and not a trip I will easily forget. A country whose awe-inspiring landscape is as humbling as its incredible people; sure to set fire to even the most experienced adventurers’ heart. Take On Nepal offered us an in-depth look at the culture and people and were integral in making sure our experience was truly once in a lifetime. Their passion for what they do and the smiles they wear everyday left as much an impression as the striking scenery. Sagarmatha National Park was one of the most challenging experiences and one that will stay with me always. Speaking of which, the team were absolutely amazing and have left such a special place in both mine and Gui’s hearts- their smiles are firmly imprinted in our memory’s, so again, from the bottom of my heart – Dhanyabad/ThankYou!

Take on Nepal was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. The local people are a delight to be around, and the scenery is some of the most beautiful I’ve seen. It was such a joy to teach the children of the school, as they were always eager to learn. The community of Batase was so welcoming to me and all of my fellow volunteers, and it really felt like a family from day one. I would highly recommend this program as it is truly empowering and all around a wonderful experience.

As a photographer Take on Nepal has been a rewarding, creative and motivational experience. The program allowed enough time to reflect on life goals while also keeping my mind active by organising and teaching a grade 2 class. The biggest thing I noticed was community. Without our online devises, as a group we communicated with the local villagers, played outside and had deep conversations. We no longer had to rely on the outside world for our source of social communication, it was just outside our door. From this I built lifelong friendships, heard positive stories of change and learnt that life is not to be taken for granted, you must seize every moment as every moment you have is a gift.

My husband and I decided to do the Annapurna Circuit trek from Khudi to Tatopani, March 20-April 2, 2017. Take on Nepal was recommended by my husband's friend who knows Som Tamang and his efforts to educate and empower Nepali girls. We decided to hire a female porter to carry my pack while my husband carried his own pack. We were introduced to Phulmaya Tamang, Som's sister, who spoke terrific English and was full of energy. I cannot say enough how much fun and reassuring it was to have Phulmaya as our porter, but she was more of a guide even though this was her first time on this particular route. She would find out recommendations of guesthouses in our next destination by talking to the locals or arrange transportation for us. She truly was invaluable. Phulmaya was so friendly, cheerful and encouraging; she was so supportive while I was acclimatizing and feeling the altitude while we went over Thorong La! We also received so many compliments about a female porter! Female trekkers were asking how we arranged it. I hope more people will utilize Take on Nepal and support the wonderful Batase people!

I could not imagine a better way to see and experience Nepal than by joining with Take On Nepal. My time spent trekking to Everest base camp were the most wonderful and rewarding few weeks of my life and making memories that will truly last a life time. The team of staff and guides will make you feel safe, loved and cared for and will absolutely ensure that your time spent with them will not just meet but exceed all expectations of your trekking experience. These people care about you and want you to experience only the best of what Nepal has to offer.

Allison Hudson - Australia, March 2017

Trekking with Take on Nepal has been one of the highlights of my life. What is so outstanding is their genuine care for their clients. This is easy to see by how much and how well they look after you, they go above and beyond in making sure your Everest Trek is really comfortable and super enjoyable. You can set your own pace and you will always have some staff with you and supporting you. Quickly you will become good friends with each of their very friendly, knowledgeable and responsible staff. Would do it again!

Tiffany Harvey - Australia, March 2017

I can honestly say that trekking to Everest Base Camp was one of the most incredible things I have ever done. Before commencing the trek we were told that a successful trek to EBC is reliant on ones mental and emotional resilience. As we trekked it became increasingly obvious to me that the mental side of the Everest game was something that could only be managed through the help of the people around me. The Take On Nepal team was there for myself and the group every step of the way and the relationship and bond we shared with them was something that went above and beyond what we saw amongst other trekkers and there guides. I plan on returning to Nepal in the near future and will definitely be trekking with the TON team again.

We provide flexible departure dates and are happy to create a customised trek and tour itinerary to suit your group and interests. At Take on Nepal, our walking tours are as much about the people, as the places we visit. Talk to us about incorporating village volunteering, with your trekking.

The Lower Himalayas are dotted with small villages, each self-sufficient and self-contained, a small world unto themselves. Life carries on as it has done for centuries, almost untouched by modern technology.

We know these places. One of our founders came from such a village and that’s why we’re so excited, and delighted, to provide customized touring and itineraries for your Nepal adventure.

Talk to us today about your wish list and we’ll create something perfect for you.
