Ain't No Mountain High Enough for Ace! (EBC Trek)
Namaste, everyone! Truly the trip of a lifetime, not only from an adventure standpoint, but from the people we met along the way. Ace the Himalaya is a world class company to work with, from top to bottom; everything was done perfectly. No words can describe how greatful we are to their entire team in Nepal, and we would love working with them again in the future. Our guides, Madan (Lead Guide) and Rupesh (Assistant Guide) were superhuman; a true Batman and Robin team! They are great ambassadors for the people of Nepal as well! Their knowledge of the mountains was second to none. With these two, there was never a dull moment, as we laughed and joked the entire trek. They exceeded our expectations, in all aspects! They have become friends for life to us. If you ever get the opportunity to trek the Himalayan Mountains, try to get this tandem! Ace the Himalaya is a FIVE STAR company and I would recommend them to anyone interested in the Everest Base Camp Trek; you will abosutley not regret booking with them! They exceeded our expecations, every step of the way, literally. Thank you to Ace the Himalaya for an exceptional trip, we hope to book another adventure with your team in the future!

EBC Trek - Incredible Trip with the BEST Guides!
My husband and I did the 14 day EBC trek with Ace the Himalaya. Our guides were Madan and Rupesh. I cannot say enough positive things about the care, attention, fun, positivity, understanding, and laughs that we received from the entire team. The moment we arrived at the KTM airport, Madan was ready and waiting for us. This set the tone for an incredible trip with guides that I felt truly cared for us and have now become lifelong friends. We experienced no issues throughout our trip because Madan and Rupesh were always one step ahead - anticipating the groups needs and any potential snags. The porters always made sure our bags were at the teahouses when we arrived. Highly highly highly recommend!

Wow wow wow.
Wow wow wow. What an awesome experience. We booked the Groupon deal for EBC trek through Ace the Himalaya. Initially sceptical about the deal I read up on here all the fantastic reviews so felt some comfort knowing there was so much positivity. It’s no wonder there are so many fantastic reviews. The Trek was exceptional. Our Guides Madan and rupesh were outstanding. Madan is extremely knowledgeable, funny, had great whit as well as a strong leadership presence amongst our group. This combined with his infectious laugh made our journey so enjoyable. We had such an awesome group from over the globe and the way the guides managed this and different levels of health was outstanding. I can’t thank Ace (Sajiya)on the simplicity of the way everything was handled in the back office. To me though it was the guides and our team that made this so memorable. 18 from 18 to EBC. Thanks

Experience Nepal 15 Days
Thanks to Ace the Himalaya and our guide Deepak Neupane for this amazing experience. The itinerary was well balanced between culture/sightseeing and actually acing the Himalaya during the Poon Hill Trek. We learned a lot about Nepal from both local guides and our personal trekking guide. Our personal needs very exceedingly well met as we were only three people on the trip. I fully recommend this trip to people interested both in Nepal's culture as well as a moderately difficult and beautiful trek.

Best honeymoon ever
We booked a 10 day trip including Kathmandu tour and trekking in the Annapurna region, with the highest point being Poon Hill. Our experience was wonderful. A driver was waiting for us at the airport and took us straight to our hotel. We had a pre trek meeting and were given plenty of information to be prepared. Ace had good communication prior to arrival and once we were here. Our day trip in Kathmandu was eventful and interesting and our guide was knowledgeable and well spoken. Our trekking guide and porters travelled with us to Pokhara and took care of us every step of the way. The guide, Manoj, was a kind, patient, and funny man. He made our experience all the better - definitely the best guide we could have asked for. Our porters were friendly and talkative. The hike was beautiful and weather was ideal. Don’t pack too many warm clothes - during the day a t shirt and pants was more than enough. For the sunrise at Poon Hill and hanging out in the evenings, warm clothes were necessary. This trip was a great introduction to trekking in Nepal and will definitely be the first of many trips we take to Nepal. Ace made this trip a great success!

Manoj is the best guide ever!
We (a group of 5) had a great time with the guide Manoj and his 3 accompanying porters for 5 days trekking the Annapurna circuit. It’s hard to describe Manoj, but he is a good likeable guide The Ace of Himalayas should give him a raise! Look forward to be a returning customer again!

Annapurna circuit trip (19 days)
During the whole trip our Guide Pasang and his porter-crew (Prem, Khan, Sunny) were always attentive and in all occasion helpful - they did everything for our group. The trip around the Annapurna with a maximum high of 5416 (Thorong-La) was ambitious and a unique experience that only thanks to the excellent crew was possible.

Everest Base Camp Trek
Wow wow wow. I can’t say enough about this experience, this company Ace the Himalayas, and our guide Madan. The company is professional experienced and dedicated to making the experience go smoothly for all guests. What a relief to see our guide standing there to pick us up at the airport at 2am when our flight was delayed for hours and we hadn’t even had the opportunity to notify them ! Madan was knowledgeable caring and fun, tending to everyone’s needs and making a group of strangers feel like family by the end of our trek. Porters always has our bags there before us and the mountains are unbelievable. Highly recommend !

Everest Base Camp Trek
I did the EBC trek with Ace the Himalaya in September-October 2019. My biggest concern was that this was my first time to Nepal and also that I was a solo female traveler. Everything was organised over the internet and Ace were really responsive and easy to deal with prior to my arrival - but I was still a bit apprehensive because I hadn't spoken to anyone in person! When I arrived in Kathmandu, the Ace the Himalaya car was waiting for me and my guide met me at the hotel and took me for an individual induction because I had arrived later than the rest of my group. The trek was difficult but I felt very safe in the hands of our guide Rajendra. He's very experienced on this trek but also comes from a pharmaceutical background. Raj is deceptively good at keeping a close eye on his trekkers - even when you don't realise he's doing it! His ears will prick up when someone is talking about how they are feeling and on one occasion, he queried the rice that I had left on my plate because usually I would have finished the lot (your appetite can take a dive when you're at altitude). Our porter Ramesh was just top-notch - he ended up carrying one of our group members into a tea house after she came down suddenly sick. I hope to see Ramesh taking on more a guide role in the near future because he did a great job with us. Both Raj and Ramesh are astute professionals but both have a sense of humour and are very down to earth and easy to get along with. I'd strongly encourage anyone considering this trip to go through Ace the Himalaya. Our staff were great but we also crossed paths with other Ace the Himalaya staff and they seemed to be just as good.

Wonderful and ambishous Annapurna Trekking Tour 17 days
With great pleasure I can recommend the great Annapurna Trekking Tour over the Torong la Pass,done within 17 days. Pasang Dawa Sherpa as our great and very nice Guide has managed our group in a perfect way, in any situation he led us through the lang way towards the Torong la Pass and had a best senior management attetude including absolute helpful friendly support, a really excellent partner. He took our three very friendly and helpful porters Prem, Kan und Sunny by hand for training reason to give them the Chance to improve their skills for Guide assistance and later as a Guide. All of them worked perfectly together, managed every critical situation, constructing a tent etc. In my opinion I can only recommend Pasang as well as Prem, Kan und Sunny to have them on board for such a trekking tour and as a partner. You will have great pleasure. I miss them. Many manager could take Pasang as a very good exampel how to lead. Wishing all of them much success and good trips. They all are it really worth, hope to meet them again :-).

Fantastic trip with Milan and Rabi
I booked with Ace because of their good communication. Every email was responded to by Lokesh within 24 hours with great detail! Milan, our guide met us at the airport and everything was explained to us at the pre trip meeting. Most flights to Lukla got cancelled on day 1, so most people in the group got helicopters, and Ace quickly emailed us the paperwork so we could claim back the costs through travel insurance. The trip itself was fantastic. Rabi set a slow and steady walking pace for us to follow, and Milan explained many things to us throughout the trip and answered all of our questions. Everybody remained relatively healthy and Milan helped us keep our spirit up. We also got help from a porter training to be a guide. Everybody made it to base camp as a result of good teamwork. We never felt rushed and felt like it was a great company to book with. Thanks to Milan, Rabi, Lokesh, Sajiya, Prem and the porters for making this trip perfect. If I come back to Nepal in the future I will book with Ace again without hesitation.

Ram the Man and Dahl Baht Power
Had the honour to do the trip of a lifetime with my dad and an amazing small group of people with Ace the Himalaya. Booking was extremely easy, all questioned answered within a matter of hours and great communication from the get-go. It only got better from there. Our guide Ram was more than we ever could have wished for; knowledgable, caring, kind, funny and motivating. Everything was organised to the T and from departure until arrival back in Kathmandu we had absolutely nothing to worry about (apart from our own physical fitness maybe haha). We all completed the trek with a massive smile on our face, new friends and a trio of a lifetime. It is definitely thanks to Ace the Himalaya that the trip we had been planning for two years was even more amazing than we had hoped for. Absolutely nothing negative to say and a 5star plus plus to Ram and the whole team! With Ace and a little bit of Dhal Baht power, we got through like yak! Thank you so so much, Ram! Until we meet again :) Kristian & Nastassia
