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:)

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.

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!

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!

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.
