Could not have been more happy about my trip in Nepal organized by Himalayan Joy and would highly recommend them for any treks in Nepal. Extremely professional, very accommodating and above all putting your safety first. In the 14 days trekking in the gokyo valley, EBC and Island Peak, not once we had an issue. Our guide was very knowledge and always happy to share and answer our questions. He and his team were always in a high spirit and good mood which made the trip even more pleasant. We finish our trek with the Island Peak ascent and he had hired some highly qualified peak guide who had climbed several times Everest. We felt in very good hands as they put out security (and comfort) first.
It was a seamless organization in places where so many factors could alter your trip. Highly recommend using Himalayan Joy.
We have to say many thanks to Our Cholendra and Tika for being very great souls who helped us in every way to make our tour a successful one. Tika did a great job while we all 12 ladies who came alone from Malaysia.I have no word to say about his kind and soft spoken attitude.We must say thanks to Himalayan Joy Adventure pvt. for giving us good hospitality and kind services with good English speaking guide.Keep up your great job. we will see you again in June.
We hired Himalayan Joy for our Island Peak (6189m high) climb and our trek around Everest. I have done many trips but this one stands above others in three ways. The organization was flawless, safety was always paramount, and the expertise of all the people we came in contact with was evident.
From our first day in Nepal, we were taken in charge by the Himalayan Joy team and nothing went wrong. The drivers were where they were supposed to be for our city tours, the lodges were ready when we got there, the quality of all accommodations and meals were as expected.
Several times during our trip, we got overzealous and tried to pack in more than we should. Our guides were very accommodating unless they thought it was not safe in which case they did not let us go ahead. This is very important on a trip like the one we did because we don't know the region like they do.
The staff was truly extremely experienced. This was most evident on our island peak climb. Our two climbing guides have a combined 12 Everest summits under their belts. They adjusted the speed of the climb to our capabilities and gave us plenty of time to adjust and take pictures. This made for an unforgettable experience.
Himalayan Joy was founded by a former porter. He rose through the ranks to become an assistant guide, a guide, and now a company owner. This made our trip more rewarding because we supported a local business that in turn respects the staff it employes because the owner has been there.
All in all. Thank you Himalayan Joy for an amazing trek.
This Kailash Mansarovar journey was indeed a journey of a lifetime. The whole yatra seemed like a dream. Feeling so complete with a first proximate vision of magnificent Kailash, very up close and personal. The feeling after completing the parikrama is indescribable!
All the above were only possible with an amazing team led by always smiling and accommodating Cholendra and his super duper team. Tika, purna, Nara, and Ramesh were like mothers, nurturing, ensuring all was well, ensuring we ate hot food, encouraging when we went breathless during parikrama.
God expresses Himself in many roopas. To me, he showed up in the roopas of these guys as well as Loto-my sherpa.
Thank you Cholen. Feeling blessed having you as our Kailash Agent as well as a friend
The call for Kailash was there in me for many years and it became possible with Himalayan Joy Adventure.
The managing director, Cholindra and his team:
Tika, Purna, Nara, Ramesh all of them are such a kind and helpful souls..
And on Tibet side, Brother Tashi, Peama, our bus driver Tava and their helpers, all of them are such a lovely people, I have ever met...
The whole team from Nepal and Tibet made a lot of positive impact in my journey to Kailash..
Their endless help and service made me feel the divinity in each one of them...
I see Lord Shiva in every one of them through their service and help...?
I would strongly recommend "Himalayan Joy Adventure" to anyone planning a trip to Kailash or any other places in that region..
