I had the pleasure of successfully completing the Everest base Camp trek with Take On Nepal company between June 4 2019 to June 17 2019. It so happened that my trek became a solo one instead of a group trek and it was an absolute blessing in disguise. I owe it to my guide Kamala Tamang and porter Suman Tamang who were crucial to my trek, constantly motivating and encouraging me through out the trek and my experience would not have been the same without these two. I chose the company initially because it supports and empowers female guides such as Kamala and distribute funds to support a children’s hostel in Batase, a small village few hours from Kathmandu. I really have to say I not only found a guide but a life long friend in Kamala who was my pillar through the challenges posed by the trek. Because I’m not a seasoned trekker, I found myself slower at times and struggled with my breathing at higher altitudes and when the path became steeper. However, my guide and porter were very patient and understanding throughout our journey. Kamala was my nurse on days I was sore with aches and pains, a friend through deep conversations and smothered me like a mother would when it came to eating and keeping hydrated. I was basically spoilt rotten. Also, the preparations made by the company were good. At almost all tea houses basic amenities were present to keep one comfortable. Another great positive is the Integrity of the company, they delivered on everything they promised trek wise and staff were most generous and hospitable. They were even kind enough to show me around the capital in days both before and after my trip and this gave me an opportunity to understand the culture and witness the architecture of the capital. In the end, a novice trekker like myself was able to trek to Everest base camp and back with zero falls, bruises and altitude sickness, thanks to my guide and porter for every time I even tripped I had four hands held out to hold me and break my fall. Thank you Take On Nepal for this wonderfull experience that I shall cherish all my life and days to come.

If you’re thinking of trekking or volunteering in Nepal, I would 100% recommend Take on Nepal. I recently completed the 14 day Everest Base Camp trek in April 2019, and what a life changing experience it was! This was not only my first ever trip overseas, but also the most mentally and physically challenging thing I have ever done in my life. Right from the beginning, Susan was there to answer all my questions (and there were a few haha!), whether it was via email or me popping into the store. She was always very prompt with her responses, was warm and friendly, and was able to put my mind at ease with any issues I might have had. Flying into Kathmandu on the first day, I was delayed proceeding through customs/obtaining my visa and I started to panic as I knew a Take on Nepal team member was supposed to be waiting for me outside the airport and I wasn’t sure if they would still be there or not as I was so late. I was able to get in touch with Susan who confirmed straight away I would still be met with a team member which came as a huge relief to me. That night our group were able to mingle and get to know each other over a group dinner, and it was the first time I got to meet Som and some of the other Take on Nepal team. Som went over all the details of the trek and everything we were to expect over the next 14 days. He answered any questions we had, and made us all feel really comfortable and excited. Our guide Dinesh was absolutely fantastic, as were the group of porters that accompanied us to Base Camp and back; they were all so down to earth and knowledgeable of the area and had a great sense of humour. I unfortunately went down quite sick with the flu only a few days into the trek which made things extra challenging for me, however Dinesh always made sure I was looked after, even providing me with cough syrup and other medications he had in his first aid kit. The porters went above and beyond, especially on the days where I was really struggling, they would offer to carry my day pack on top of what they were already carrying, which meant I was able to push through to make it to the day’s destination. Our tea house accommodation along the way was great, and was really well organised by Take on Nepal; they took care of everything and we didn't have to worry about a thing. The tea houses were also very accommodating with our meals and any dietary requirements people had. The scenery on the trek was spectacular and being in amongst the Himalaya's is something that I will never forget. Reaching Base Camp was definitely the highlight of the trip, and I was fortunate enough to have shared it with an incredible group of people who pushed me, supported me, cried with me, laughed with me, but most importantly, gave me memories that I will treasure forever. I really cannot thank Take on Nepal enough for providing me with the experience of a life time - I can now check Everest Base Camp off my bucket list!

This trekking company is very capably run by a Nepalise guy (Som) who moved to Australia to improve his life. He did not turn his back on his people though, and runs a charity to assist kids in need with safe housing, education, and is able to employ some in running the charity in Nepal, and others as guides and porters, in his privately owned Take on Nepal (TON). The focus overall is on girls, and it is more than likely that if you take a trip with this Company, you will be very capably assisted by some remarkable young women (& guys). Even though TON is a private operation, many benefits filter back to the village and charity, as you will come to understand if you go - it will be a great experience, at an affordable price.

I recently shared a phenomenal experience in Nepal. I was trekking to Everest Base Camp with Take On Nepal, a Cairns based company, with it's roots well and truly embedded in Nepal. The inspiring Som Tamang, from Batase Village in the hill region of Nepal, and his partner Susan Devitt, have created an extraordinary experience for folks just like myself. A pre-trek information night provided much needed detail, shared experiences, and supportive information. I felt well prepared for the trek in terms of fitness, knowledge and equipment/clothing. Nothing could have prepared me however, for just how exhilarating every single step of this life changing journey would be. Nature, in her most spectacular and challenging presence was of course a huge part of this exhilaration. But amongst it all, I was able to share a deep connection with the Nepali people, in particular our guides and porters. Of the 8 Take On Nepal crew looking after our group of 12 guests, the most notable aspect was the reality of having 4 young female guides, in what has traditionally been a "men only" realm. These inspiring and courageous young women have taken a huge leap in following their own chosen path in life, in the face of traditions of tragic destiny for young women in Nepal; and perhaps more significantly are leading the way as part of a cultural shift right across Nepal. Take On Nepal is to be highly praised for providing such a life changing opportunity for these girls, and for all those who follow these remarkable young role models. I felt so comfortable in the care of this group of hard working, compassionate, supportive and dedicated young people. From the route planning, the food, the tea houses, the responsible and good humoured leadership of our skipper Dinesh, the experience and expertise, the opportunity to get a real sense of connection to the Nepali people, the awesome connections with the others in our group, just so many things to be grateful for. I have a lifetime now, to enjoy the most rewarding reflections of my trekking experience. I have spoken to others who have embarked on the same trek with other companies; the same trek geographically that is. I feel as though they simply flew to Kathmandu, did the trek, waved the flag, and flew home with some spectacular scenic photos. It seems pretty clear to me that I was privileged to have immersed myself in so much more. Thank you so much Som, Susan, and all the wonderful Take On Nepal team, who, by the way, met us with a smile at Kathmandu Airport, escorted us to our hotel, restaurants, shops for gear, sightseeing around the temples of Kathmandu - they just had genuine, and continuous kindness that just flowed so very naturally The simple difference between ordinary and extraordinary, is the "extra" - thank you Take On Nepal for all the "extra". Namaste, Brian.

Such an incredible experience trekking for almost 2 weeks in Nepal with the team from Take on Nepal. What they have is something very special, and something that we didn't see from other guides and porters - they all are family, and treated us like family too. That meant setting a quicker pace for those of us who were stronger, and helping and providing encouragement to those who were slower or not feeling as well. We all loved having a female guide and two female guides-in-training/porters with us - such a unique experience that I hope more tour companies will start to emulate. Thanks to Som, Samjana, Sujan and the whole team for everything - I would recommend Take on Nepal for any trekking in Nepal, and hope to come back soon with my husband and kids in tow!

Brilliant service from the moment we were greeted at Kathmandu airport and the following 21 days of trekking and visiting Batase Village. All the local Take On Nepal guides and porters were fantastic, great local knowledge and advice on where to buy trekking gear, coffee and Momo's! Everest Base Camp trek was all the more enjoyable with these young energetic, happy guides and porters. Take On Nepal are about more than just trekking trips, they are providing life changing employment opportunities for the young people of Batase area and beyond. Very highly recommended.

We had an incredible trekking experience and got to see beautiful views every day. Our guides were amazing and to have a female guide was a very special and unique opportunity for us. Som did an excellent job in planning our trek for us and I will definitely be recommending Take on Nepal to my friends!

There are so many options when booking for the Everest Base Camp Trek. It was important for me to find an ethical company who employ local people and put back resources to the local community rather than just making a profit for themselves. I did a lot of research and came across Take on Nepal. I was also delighted to see that they employ female guides and porters. Even though I signed up for a group, I was the only one on the trip and it couldn't have worked out better. My guide Phulmaya met me at the airport a day early and even took me sightseeing around Kathmandu! During the trek she was amazing. Her English was excellent and she had the best sense of humour. She was informative, insightful and extremely attentive. I cannot articulate just how special she made the trip for me. Thank you Take on Nepal
