I cannot rate Passages and particularly Rankesh highly enough.
I have used many touring companies in Nepal before, but Passages impressed me even before I arrived as they were by far the most responsive trekking company to our emails and WhatsApp messages, in very good English.

Once we arrived in Kathmandu we went to see Rankesh in their Thamel office and he is a great guy. All of our arrangements were sorted over a cup of green tea. He showed us his business promoting recycling which is highly commendable.
We were provided with a porter/guide, bus tickets and our permits for trekking which saved us the hassle of going to the TIMS office. Rankesh kindly walked us down to the bus early in the morning to make sure we were on the right one.
When our flights from Pokhara to Jomsom were cancelled due to poor weather Rankesh rang round and got us a Jeep at a better price, at very short notice. Later on, when I became ill due to a stomach bug he rung our driver (who didn't speak much English) to let him know that I may need to stop for toilet breaks. Also he translated at the permit checkpoints when there were queries.
The porter/guide provided was friendly and had a good sense of humour.

Throughout the rest of our trip Rankesh stayed in touch via WhatsApp to make sure I was recovering and was on hand to provide any assistance if we requested it.

You will find that there are a lot of trekking companies in Kathmandu, but I will be using Passages every time I am in Nepal, because they offer a 5* service. You should book through them too. You won't regret it.

Rankesh helped me finding people to interview for my documentary about mountaineering guides and gave me many pieces of advice on where to find the right people on my later trip to the Everest region. After having met and chatted with him several times in Kathmandu I would definitely put my trust in him for my future adventures.

Thank you so much to George, Ulla, and Stefan for making the trip with us in the Langtang region and your successful Yala peak climbing via Tamang heritage trail to Langtang and Gosoikunda trek at the end. Hope you will provide us the great opportunity again to organize the trip in Nepal Himalayas in the near future. Take care, Rankesh

The moment you enter the office of Rankesh in Thamel, you will have a good time. He is a funny guy and especially really helpful. He planned our trip very well despite the trip being a bit individual. We were 3 people and we had to split after 2 weeks due to time/work reasons of me (I returned to Kathmandu with a porter of us and the other 2 continued trekking with the guide and the other porter for one more week). He was the only one we found who said that this is possible.
The trip itself was extremely beautiful. In the beginning on the Tamang Heritage Trek, we felt like seeing a different part of the beauty of the Nepalese nature every day. Afterwards, the Langtang Valley was again different to what we saw before. Our personal highlight was the ascent of Yala Peak where we felt like being on top of the world.
As Rankesh is very nice and helpful, so were also our guide and the 2 porters we had. They were always looking after us and careful in a way that we could not have wished for more.
All in all, it was the perfect trip for us and we can definitely recommend Rankesh to plan your trip in Nepal.

From minute 1 , when we started planning our 16 day Trek to Gokyo, Rankesh from Passage Nepal was there. We planned this trip last minute and Rankesh made it happen. We got picked up at the airport , the guest house was in Thamel was organized and couple days later we were flying out with Bom our guide to Phablo (very cool landing at that airport). 16 days later with unsurpassed assistance from our very friendly guide we competed this amazing trek through the Sagarmatha National park . Its my 5th time to Nepal and things couldn't have been smoother. Rankesh organizing our flight out of Lukla last minute as we are hiking towards the town. Very impressed, Highly recommend this contact in Kathmandu. Sophi (Bom) couldnt have been more helpful as a guide in any way possible as he assisted my 14 year old daughter and myself motivating us and practically handing us the keys to our accommodations during this this long and rewarding trek. 5 Star all the way.

I`m already looking forward to the next Trip, that we can hopefully do together next time! Thanks alot!

Rankesh was my group's guide through the Annapurna circuit for the best part of 3 weeks back in 2007 - although after three weeks he was more of a friend than a guide. This is an incredibly beautiful part of the world and Rankesh was always there for us, answered every question we had, was always joking and really made everything so easy which is what you need on the more difficult days. I don't know how he was so patient with us. Thanks Rankesh.

I hired Purna to do a Manaslu trek back in 2014 and he was one of the best trekking guide i have ever had. He is very cheerful, knowledgeable and responsible during our trek and given that i was the only female member in the group of 6 men trekking for 21 days, he was nothing but respectable towards me. I would highly recommend Purna to any hikers who are looking for a guide who will look after you and do above and beyond for you.
