Recommendation for Vimal Thapa and Nature Treks, Kathmandu, Nepal

We highly recommend Vimal Thapa, owner of Nature Treks, who was both a trekking and birding guide for us in December 2014. He and his company were outstanding as guides and companions.
Vimal was superb as a trek organizer and leader for our party of 10, including 4 children, for a 3-4 day trek to Panchase, in the Pokhara and Annapurna region. He has outstanding organizational and communication skills and worked well with a range of age groups and hiking abilities. He managed his 8 staff members well, and each evening and morning clearly communicated the day’s plan to both clients and staff. He worked with the lodges where we stayed to ensure that we got our food preferences and were sorted into appropriate rooms. He did all this in a personable, low-key and pleasant manner.
Vimal is an excellent birder and also a fine guide to the ecology and wildlife of the region. He is amazing at spotting birds, quickly identifying them and their calls, and helping others to see them. He willingly took a separate evening hike to bird with a few of us after a long day trek and also willingly rose at 5:30 AM to lead all that were interested (one) on a side trip for an exceptional sunrise mountain view.
After the trek Vimal accompanied the two of us by car from Pokhara to Kathmandu, birding along the way (we saw the rare Ibisbill). Later he took us birding in the Kathmandu Valley near Godawari, where we saw more than 3 dozen species of birds. After we returned home, Vimal e-mailed us a list of all the birds we had seen (121) with their scientific names, including notes about where we had seen them. In addition to his organizational and leadership skills, Vimal is an enjoyable companion who has a fine sense of humor and is fun to be with.

Tamang Heritage Trail: 19th to 26th Aug 2014

Our guide was very nice and prepared. The entire village we visited was amazing for different point of views. The  nature on the trekking was gorgeous. Bijay tried to satisfy all our needs. If it’s possible, try to improve the cleanliness of the bedroom.

Tamang Heritage Trail: 19th to 26th Aug 2014

I am very impressed about the kindness and well preparation of our guide Bijay who always tried to make our trip special. He understood our needs and especially the things we like the most and he always tries to accomplish them. We couldn’t ask for more.

Dear Vimal

My sister & I booked the Everest BC Trek with you from 26th March 2013.  Our flight did not go until 27th.  Lokendra was our guide.  I wanted to say how happy we were with the service your company provided us.  Pema, was beyound exceptional at his job, arranging, rearranging, offering alternatives and been generally 100% dependable.  He is extremely good at his job.  Also, Lokendra, our Guide was amazing.  He was such good fun, always laughing and he definitely matched our Irish sense of humour.  We felt 100% safe with him and knew if things went wrong we were in safe hands.  Well done Nature Treks – I can’t sing your praises enough.  Brilliant job and I will definitely be recommending your to my friends in Ireland.  Also, your office staff are all so friendly and easy going.  Brilliant company!  Pema is highly recommended from Ireland.  Thank you and we definitely hope to return some day soon – we fell in love with Nepal xx  Good wishes from Ireland

The major highlights of your Nepal tour!

Homestay, eco-lodges, view at Mohare Hill, seeing local businesses etc, operate (e.g. paper making, orange farm)

Claire Fitzpatrick from Australia/Community eco-lodge treks (Jan 2013)


We really enjoyed the time with our guide Bijay and Yem! They were very helpful, friendly and were looking for our needs and our wishes. Bijay always answered to our interesting facts about the Nepalese culture. Yem did always help us through slippery parts on the trail and made a lot of funny jokes. We really enjoyed the 5 days with them!!

Classic Community Trek 21 November -1st December 2012-12-27
Plus 3 days in Chitwan and 2 days in Kathmandu
Jane Tearle, UK

What an amazing experience! With my aim to see the Himalayas and meet the people of Nepal, this trek ‘hit the spot’ on all counts! From the time my friend and I met Vimal Thapa of in Kathmandu until our return there over 2 weeks later, we were exceptionally well looked after. Transport, accommodation, whether in homestays or community centres; and the excellent assistance from Am and Bimal (assistant guide and porter) made this a hugely enjoyable trip. The fact we were taken to areas unfrequented by other trekkers made it seem as though we were the only travellers. Perfect. With Vimal’s help and friendly approach to everyone, we were able to make friends with our hosts in the villages and community centres. This was a real highlight of the journey. Also, with Vimal’s intimate knowledge of the area, the wildlife, especially the birds, his attention to detail and his wish that we were made as comfortable as possible and enjoyed ourselves makes recommending his style of trek  the best way of experiencing the real Nepal.. I would love to do another trek in Nepal, with nature-treks, while my knees still work!


Teresa and family in Rolwaling valley trek: 24 May – 04 June 2012

The highlights of the trip has been seeing the amazing Tso Rolpa Lake, the view of mountains from Bedding and Nagaon, the Rolwaling river and excellent service of guide and porter.

Very happy with your service and would encourage to offer more , “off the beaten treks” route.

Classic Community Eco-lodge treks and volunteering at Tikot

22 April – 2 May 2012 and volunteering after the trek

We had a wonderful guide Santosh, who was always informative and eager to tell us about life in Nepal. He was very helpful with our 10 year old daughter Hannah, making sure that she was always safe in the mountains. We would also like to thank Tara, who was an excellent second guide, and out two tireless porters, Om and Lal – Richard Tomlinson, UK

Not many tourists, real villages, lovely mountains views, excellent guide Santosh with good information, helpful and happy trekking team, Om, Lal and Tara – Teresa Poole, UK

I really enjoyed the trek- thank you, Danyabad- Hannah (10 years)

The view of the Annapurna mountains from Mohare lodge, 3300m, in the morning, the walk in the nature (rhododendron forest), though the villages and meeting people, were the highlight of this Taste of Annapurna Dhaulagiri Community Eco-lodge treks in Myagdi area of Annapurna.

“See Annapurna & Support Local Initiatives!”
Reviewed June 26, 2011 NEW
person found this review helpful
Because we didn’t want to walk hand in hand with loads of other tourists, we looked for an alternative trail in the Annapurna area., also known as ‘Borderlands Group’, offered us a great deal which I like to suggest to you, and every other hiker in search for a mountainous area.


It’s a demanding trail walk, but if you’re in good shape you can make the 10-days. The Annapurna region is a beautiful part of Nepal. But it’s several little differences in hiking and contributing what makes this tour unique:

First: this tour shows you the Nepali way of living, by visiting several community’s. So off the main road and into a less explored area. Here you can see how a part of the money you pay for this trek, is being invested in local initiatives. Think in self-supporting projects: providing materials for building a community guest house where they can receive future guests, a commercial herb garden to support varied food, personal computers on local schools, etc. It’s good for both parties.

Second: you always sleep in a very comfortable lodges of the community’s you support. Most of the time you and your group members are the only guests, so lets meet the locals. There’s a very warm welcome, every day!

The trail route is NOT crowded, or a one-in-a-dozen, route. But, as you can see on their website, you’ll see many highlights.

Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

5th trek with ‘Taste of Community Eco-Lodge Trek in Annapurna’ area was something special. With Vimal as guide and Bijay assistant ensured our trek will be an adventure never to forget. Vimal’s enthusiasm and knowledge is second to none on all from local culture to birds, nature and mountains. This he willing shared with us enabling all to gain a full understanding and insight into local life and the breath taking surroundings.

Gokyo-Everest BC

Just back from a great trek to Gokyo Lakes and EBC. Our guide Lokendra’s lively personality, excellent knowledge of the mountains, understanding of the local culture and nature gave us a real insight into the Everest area. We had a great team who obviously enjoyed trekking and took a great pride in looking after us as guests. Thanks to everyone in the Nature Trek team in Kathmandu for your organisation of the trek, and the everlasting memories we brought back.

Nepal Wildlife and culture 

Chitwan natioinal park, Bardia national park, Lumbini and Pokhara

Nepal Wildlife Tours 2009 I can’t thank you enough, Vimal, for all the work you put into helping us to plan the trip – and for all your extra efforts in making it run smoothly while we were travelling – we couldn’t have done it without you!

Memories of our Nepal experiences are so vivid; so many warm welcomes at guest houses: the buzz of Kathmandu, the atmosphere of the city in Bhaktapur and the peace of Changunarayan. Birds in Bardia… many…rafting on the river and that elusive brief glimpse of Gangetic dolphin: those quiet moments waiting and watching, and our first awesome sight of a rhinoceros. Lumbini was so much more impressive than I had imagined, we would happily have spent longer there in the peace and quiet – the cottages there were lovely. Our Chitwan experience was amazing; seeing rhinoceros grazing, up so close from the back of an elephant in the grey and pink light of dawn and watching a Leopard, in the afternoon light, up in all the colours of the Honey Tree were both breathtaking moments. Seeing Mount Everest and all the peaks of the Himalaya ranged out before us, was a moment at the top of the world that I will never forget. So many memories, I think I could write a book…!
