We spent 7 days in Nepal. Himalayan Joy assisted us with our Tibet visas, helped us find hotels and guided us on a 3 day trek. We loved every minute of it. Cholendra was great working with from the beginning setting up the trip. Tikka was a great guide. We was knowledgeable of the area, spoke great English and was fun to travel with. We highly recommend this company!
Being my first trek, it started with lots of firsts, and Cholendra's HJA team made all the difference! Every kind, selfless, honest, loving gesture paved a profound, inner journey that was truly a mind-blowing experience. Coming from an environment of concrete jungle, the vast, powerful, raw nature was too overwhelming at times and couldn't have overcome the obstacles without Cholendra, Ramesh and their team's constant assistance and guidance. They were always making sure we're fine and extremely dependable. Having a team who would go the extra mile to keep you safe on a trek like this, indeed was the best insurance!!! I strongly recommend Cholendra and his team, and my next trip would definitely be with this A-team!
• personalised experience
•fun and exciting activities arranged
• best food
• more than comfortable where supplies are limited
• perfect for students and even middle aged trekkers
• Cholendra and team are kind, generous and thoughtful
• anyone who goes trekking with Himalayan Joy Adventure would be waiting for the next trip back to Tibet/Bhutan/Nepal with HJA
Novice trekkers like me are always sceptical of testing unknown terrain in Nepal. The one hell of a mountainous country will leave persons like me, in the late fifties stranded breathless with increasing altitude accompanied with poor appetite and nausea.
I joined 12 others.
The thought of doing the Annapoorna Track from Darapani to Mukthinarh was made possible by the local promoter, The Himalayan Joy Adventure, led by an energetic young man Cholendra. With his team of guides and porters, Cholendra was meticulous from pre-trip arrangement to post trip departure.
He displayed a commanding leadership with great confidence, systematic in every aspect, absolutely no hiccups, always relaying correct information and thus enabling our selves to assess and prepare for the terrain. He kind of created the spirit of adventure and endurance of the journey - a joy that enveloped our body and souls.
In terms of pricing, I'm not sure, but all I can say is that I obtained the satisfaction that no more money can buy.
I wish Cholendra and his team all the best.
A group of 13 were planning to do the Annapurna circuit and the entire duration of stay was so well organised.
I was here with my family and had the most exciting wonderful time! The sceneries and trek leading up to Thorong Pass was ever so scenic - the best views i have seen! Food and accommodation were good too.
Cholendra and his team (Ramesh and the porters) were always so kind, thoughtful and ever helpful. He ensured that every member of the team was taken care of throughout the duration including those who had to be airlifted for medical reasons. Some members of the team were struggling with their bags and the porters would make several to and fro trips to help them carry things and the team were ever so grateful. Throughout the trek he and his team were ever so motivating, shared their knowledge about the culture and the montains.
I had a time of my life and would certainly recommend Cholendra and his team.
And i am looking forward to trekking up Mt Mera next year!
