Travelers say:

My friend and I trekked with Traveltimes to Annapurna Base Camp in 2010, and had an amazing time. Dawa provided a great guide, Khamsang, who was kind, considerate, strong as a horse, patient, helpful, friendly – he also had great suggestions for options on the trek, and was helpful in securing a place to sleep in a couple of stops due to overcrowding. We always felt very safe and looked after with Traveltimes. Dawa made arrangements for us to get to Pokkara, accommodations in Thamel, transfers to\from the airport in KTM as well as Pokkara – everything was perfect, which can sometimes be a big challenge in Nepal. We also used Traveltimes to go to Everest Base Camp, and then on to Gokyo Lakes which remains one my most favorite treks ever. Dowa was our guide on that trip, and he planned everything perfectly for a trip that will provide me with many wonderful memories for the rest of my life. He is very service oriented, communicates a lot with the clients, asks questions and will help you enjoy your time in Nepal. He is a good business owner and has been doing this for many years – not some fly-by-night company – of which there are many in Kathmandu. The next time we’re in Nepal, we won’t think about using any other company except Traveltimes. Larry Baker, USA


Reputable, trustworthy company – experience of a life time!!
Dawa at travel times treks was brilliant from the beginning. He gave us lots of information and options. Eventually my partner and I chose to trek from Lukla to gokyo lakes. It was well chosen as we really wanted to seeEverest but also get away from the regular tour groups on the way to base camp. We met our guide Kamsang in Kathmandu. He was just lovely. And the the adventure began! It was a magical journey and one that we will always remember. Yes, it was physically challenging but khamsang was so patient and caring which really helped.We stayed in lovely rustic accomodation along the way with interesting and friendly hosts. Beware, it’s not for the faint hearted as it is very basic and quite challenging but soooo worth it! We also hired a porter and had a lovely young strong man who was due to start university next year. There is no way we could have managed our own bags but I would have felt terrible if a really old person was carrying them like you saw with some of the big trekking companies who got the porters to carry about 4 bags at once! We would love to go back and do more trekking in the area and would choose travel time treks again without a doubt! It’s great to get the personal touch. Thanks again team!! Nicola Tee
