What Travelers Says about Dawa Lama Tamang & His guiding:
Everest Base Camp trek itself is great but our guide Dawa and his group made it more wonderful. He has very good knowledge of terrain, experience and as well as very good connection. We did 15 day long Everest Base Camp in winter and food and lodging he arranged was really good. Best thing I like about him, he became part of gang and the few catchy lined he used to say became part of our daily routines or i must say they are still part of our life. He and Wendy are very lovely and jovial person. Many thanks to you Dawa you made this trip amazing and memorable. You will be my guide in my next trip!

Everest Base Camp proved to be a very special journey in my life; as you know the decision to go for this expedition was taken by me in mere one week's time and hence I was very very skeptical about everything...the group, the gang and the trip! But I must say Traveltimes Treks gave us such homely ambiance during those 14 days that It almost became a home for me! Dawa & Wendy, apart from being amazingly nice individuals, are so adventurous and approachable that they have left and unbelible impression in my mind.
I am so thankful to Dawa, I still remember so vividly, that he accompanied me to Pokhalde peak again when the whole gang had almost come down from summit and I was the only one who was left far far behind! Never got a chance to thank you Dawa but I mean it when I say it was only a good side of you and nothing else! Keep it up! Thanks Traveltimes Treks for giving us best of life and a gift of dreaming high! I am sure I will try to find every possible opportunity to explore mountains with you!

I took part in the trek to Everest Base Camp in 2009. It was by far the best thing I've ever done. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful and extremely impressive, despite some pretty high bridges! Dawa was our guide and I don't think we could have found anyone who knew more about the Himalayas. He was very informative and knew the names and stories of every landmark/peak/trail, and even where to find snow leopards. Altogether a trusty guide and a great guy. You won't regret it!

Quite possibly the trip of a lifetime! Everest Base Camp was a challenging yet amazing trip and it was made all the better by Dawa and his team. He looked after my fellow colleagues and myself and made sure it was an enjoyable trek. At no point did I feel uneasy about undertaking such a tough trek. Dawa is a friendly, experienced and passionate guide who has years of experience of trekking in the Nepalese mountain ranges. He was a pleasure to be around and as a result of his help in organizing one of the best trips of my life, I now count him as a close friend. I would thoroughly recommend Dawa and his team to anyone thinking of visiting Nepal and wanting to experience the beautiful scenery on offer!

"I would highly recommend Traveltime Treks to anyone traveling to Nepal. I completed two treks with them and could not have been treated better. My traveling partner and I custom-tailored an itinerary that met our needs. As in most treks, there were changes due to unforeseen circumstances, but all were handled seamlessly by our guides. Dawa and Wendy are experts in the trekking industry."

My trip to the Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar peak in December 2010 was among the most memorable treks I have ever undertaken. The extraordinary beauty of the Nepal Himalaya was visible everywhere, thanks to an unbroken spell of brilliantly clear weather. The entire trek of 12 days was extremely well managed and led by Dawa Lama Tamang and Wendy Koninkx of Traveltimes Treks Pvt. Ltd. Their in-depth knowledge about the country side and the peaks that loomed all around together with the unfailing courtesy and service of the entire Traveltimes Treks team of support staff rounded off this trek in the most enjoyable way possible. For those looking for a professional, hassle-free trekking experience of the first order, I strongly recommended Traveltimes Treks Pvt. Ltd., Kathmandu, Nepal.

I always think of you and the wonderful trip whenever I hear about Nepal or see photos. I look forward to returning, hopefully with my daughters and possibly my wife. It's hard to say when I'll return, but it is constantly on my mind. Good luck with your company!
