Just a note to let you know everything turned out perfectly on our Nepal Trip.  All members of our group were absolutely delighted.  You and Prashant were very professional and made all arrangements for us on schedule and did all transfers perfectly.  

We had no waiting.  We met our Sherpa guide at the hotel and he flew with us to Lukla where we met the rest of the crew and were off on the trail in minutes.  Lakpa, the guide, was very entertaining and was with us at all times in case we had any questions.  

The Lodges were really great, and the food way beyond our expectations.  We ate everything and stayed healthy. 

The two teen Rai porters were very congenial and smiling and quick to join in for a group picture.  They usually got to the destinations way ahead of the rest of us, and then ran down to assist anyone who found that their daypack was getting heavier!

 All in all a great trip and you are to congratulated for running such a smoothly oiled operation ( with the exception of the London Post, over which you probably have little control)  So far I have traveled with many of adventure trip operators from the US, and I must say you’ve topped the high standard in the adventure travel industry.  All of our group is in agreement.  Again we cannot praise our guide, Lakpa Sherpa too highly since he was there to meet our every need and answer our every question.   

If you have any clients who would like to speak to me about our experience you can have them contact me at this email and I would be glad to contact them by phone.

Hi Tulsi,

It’s just a quick message to say thanks for putting on a great trip. We all really enjoyed it. It’s only now I’m back reflecting on it that I realize how amazing it was. It was a lifelong dream being able to see Everest and climb a Himalayan peak. Nepal is a fantastic country, Pema and the rest of the Sherpas were really helpful and friendly. I’m glad I could share some time with them.
Also a million thanks for arranging that helicopter that got us down. 🙂

Our entire holiday went like clockwork, especially our tour to Pokhara, Lumbini, and Chitwan. We have already started saving for a return trip to Nepal next year.We really had truly meaningful and wonderful experience throughout the trip.

Lindsey, like me, has fallen in love with Nepal. We look forward to our next visit.

We express our sincere thanks to Tulsi and Jyotsna for organized trip and helping to make our trip so memorable.

Ray & Lindsey, April 2018 Nepal Visit.,

It’s been long due in my mind. Please find below my testimonial for NST, in both English and French:

“In November 2011 I had the privilege to go on a 6 day trek from Lukla to the Ama Dablam base camp, organized by Nepal Sanctuary Treks for a group of very different levels hikers. It was a dazzling experience and I have precious memories of the whole trip. I have traveled extensively in Asia for business or leisure, and rarely have seen in a travel agent such a great combination of quality of service, attention to the clients’ needs, reactivity to the journey’s episodes, security and kindness provided by the guide. I can only recommend Tulsi and his team to any traveler who wants an unforgettable experience in Nepal.”

 “J’ai fait en novembre 2011 un trek de 6 jours de Lukla au camp de base del’Ama Dablam organisé par Nepal Sanctuary Trek, avec un groupe de marcheursde niveaux très variés. J’en garde un souvenir emerveillé.J’ai beaucoup voyagé dans différents pays d’Asie, et j’ai rarementrencontréun tel mélange dans une agence de voyages de qualité deservices, réactivitéaux aléas, sécurité assurée par le guide du trek, gentillesse, et prise encompte des besoins/attentes des clients. Je recommande vivement Tulsi et son équipe à toute personne désireused’avoir une expérience inoubliable au Népal.”

Let’s keep in touch, and thanks again for the chance to have such a pleasant experience in Nepal.

 I asked if I could take a run up to Ama Dablam Base Camp from Pangbouche and Phouri, who functioned as an assistant guide went up there with me in 2 1/2 hrs and we got invited into almost every mess tent for coffee.  We then went back to Tashinga by the more direct route, while the girls took a longer route.

Robert & Linda Weiner ,

Let me send our heartfelt thanks from our entire group. Everything went according to the plans and we were all satisfied with the trekking and our friends with Chitwan safari as well. Chandra was a very polite and
thoughtful guide. And porters were doing their hard work quietly and politely. I think we got some extra service on the way which was a pleasant surprise, thank you for that.

We are ready to recommend your services in future for our friends. In fact, my husband gave your contact details to one of newly arrived ambassador. 

I hope we are able to enjoy your services in future

We returned to the UK all intact and have returned to work but still remember what a fabulous trek we had to ABC.  A big thank you to you and to Gopal for looking after us so well.  It was truly a trip of a lifetime and made all the better by having such competent, professional and personable guides.

I am already thinking about what is next and I would like to consider something a bit more adventurous but need your advice.  I have always rock climbed and managed a little ice climbing about 30 years ago!!  What sort of expedition would you recommend that might include a low-level peak or something a bit more technical?

Thank you again for all your help and support.

“Mr. Tulsi Gywaling’s Nepal Sanctuary Treks is a first-rate organization. It was recommended to me by my son who utilized their services several times, bringing 20 to 30 students for various programs in Nepal; Sanctuary Treks helped them to have comfortable and successful trips.

“In our trip all arrangements were made well in advance and all worked out well. We had good hotel accommodations, comfortable vehicles that were on call at all times, and good drivers.

“Mr. Gywaling was always available by phone, polite, and helpful. He was quite flexible as we made some necessary plan changes. I definitely recommend Nepal Sanctuary Treks to any group wishing to travel in Nepal.”

My name is Theo Kossart and I believe that you are considering utilizing Nepal Sanctuary Treks for an upcoming trip in Nepal.

Tulsi has provided me with many services over the last 24 years, from organizing raft support on kayaking expeditions to internal flights (where he seems to have good contacts at many airports around the country, which I think is important when flights are canceled, delayed frequently), accommodations, to full expedition support. In 1998, I organized a 7 men team to climb Mt. Pumari, and we had an additional 12 friends and family trek to Base Camp. Tulsi, competently organized all permits, provision, supporting staff and internal transport. Subsequently, similar expedition support was provided in 2001 when we made an attempt to climb Mt. Everest from Tibetan side, and Mera and another full-service expedition to Chamlang in 2010.

His company is competent, reliable, trustworthy and hard working. His ability and network of contacts allow him to solve those problems that present themselves from time to time when traveling in such a country.

I have recommended Tulsi to others to their satisfaction, and have no hesitation in utilizing his services again.

Theo Kossart (Expedition leader), Melbourne, Australia

Thanks for your efforts in organizing a wonderful trip. Sorry I didn’t email you earlier to thank you for your amazing hospitality. 

The date for next year’s CAS week is:

CAS Week will run from Tuesday 27th October till Friday 30th October

I was thinking about doing the trek to Annapurna Base Camp. We don’t need to do anything yet, as these are draft dates but I thought I would forewarn you; I am sure the trip will be well subscribed next year as everybody loved the trip you organized this year.

Jonathan, Teacher and leader, Satin College, Hong Kong

I would like to thank you once again for a well-organized trip. We all had a great time. I am sure you will have some return customers. I specifically would like to thank you for the special consideration you gave to Patrik.
