  • Great experience during 19-day Manaslu trek with side trips!

    Karna Rana was very professional during the booking and preparation. The guide Sabut and his cousin Porter Ganesh were very kind, easygoing, and knowledgeable. They were friendly with hotel owners and I felt included when eating with them in the kitchen. Although the mountains were often cloudy in the afternoons, we had good views during the mornings and only two days of light rain during the 19 days of the trek. I enjoyed the Manaslu Circuit side trips to Serang Gompa, Kal Tal, Hinang Gompa, and Pungyen Gompa. I had heard of Milarepa caves in Samagaon, and Sabut, with the help of local villagers, was able to find them. Very recommended guide, porter, and trekking agency!

  • Langtang valley trek - as a family!

    ♥️♥️ Please book with these fantastic people! You couldn't be in better hands with Karna and his team!

    We booked the Langtang Valley Trek online and immediately had warm contact with Karna. Once in Nepal, we met Karna in person, but also with guide Jayram and porter Sumon. We couldn't have asked for a better experience with nicer people!

    We are a family with an 11-year-old boy. We had the best time hiking the valley, 'climbing' the mountain, seeing the animals and great views. Very easy for our boy, a little harder for us 😉.

    EVERYTHING was arranged very well. They thought of every detail during the trek (but also during the rest of our trip in Nepal). Nice accommodations, tea and lunch stops, and trekking poles (which I thought I wouldn't need, boy was I wrong!), etc. We didn't have to lift a finger, just put one foot in front of the other.

    Thanks again for the great time we had as a family - we would highly recommend others to book with you! ♥️♥️

  • Highly recommend Nepal Mother House for a professional EBC trekking experience

    Mar 2024 • Family
    Can't recommend Nepal Mother House Treks enough. From the initial contact with Karna via email regarding our custom trip for the Everest Base Camp trek, to making a few changes along the way (and even during the trek), everything was handled professionally and without issue. Airport and hotel pickup/dropoff was also handled without any question and we were greeted warmly.

    Myself and my father opted for the drive-in EBC trek and our guide, Jay, and porter, Audiraj, couldn't have been better. The first day of trekking took its toll on my father's old knees but with Jay's patience and experience of many (25 successful!) EBC treks we reached our day 1 guesthouse. The following few days we took it slow to help my father recover a bit and with Jay's guidance we successfully reached EBC according to schedule!

    Along the way, Jay couldn't have been more helpful with taking our breakfast, lunch, and dinner orders at the guesthouses (and organizing a melon/apple with pomegranate desert each night), taking strategic tea stops during the trek, and explaining clearly the trekking plan for the following day. Jay's English is superb, he has a lot of local and cultural knowledge and was able to answer any of our random questions along the way. Also hats off to Audiraj for carrying the majority of our gear there and back!

    I will be fully recommending Nepal Mother House Treks and Jay to my brother and his partner (and anyone else) when they come to do the EBC trek (or any other trek in Nepal). When I am back for some of the other treks I will also be using Nepal Motherhouse again!
    Massive thanks to Karna, Jay, and Audiraj for making our EBC trek a successful and memorable experience!


  • Langtang 7 days Trek Private

    We took a 7-day Langtang Valley Trek with Nepal House Mother. There is nothing we can complain about, as we were very satisfied during the whole trip. During the trip, we were accompanied by our lovely guide, Jay, and helper, Kishrul.Karna the owner was also very helpful in providing pre-arrival information. Our trip was lovely, pleasant, and wonderful. Both of them are very professional, kind, and nicest people we ever met in Nepal. I was traveling with my 60-year-old dad who has a knee problem. We felt safe as both of them took care of us very well. Everything was well organized, from the accommodation, meals, and transportation. Surely we will choose Nepal House Mother along with Jay & Kis for our next Nepal trip in the future.

  • We Went On The Manaslu Circuit Trek With Motherhouse And It Was A Dream!

    They arranged for our guide (Sabut) to pick us up from the airport and as it was a holiday he arrived with amazing-smelling flower garlands handmade by his mum! The whole Manaslu Circuit trip was well organized, on time, and enjoyable. They were also flexible for us when two members of our group were delayed a day in arriving in Kathmandu. Karna met with us in his office before and after the trek just to give us the full information and double-check that we were happy with all the plans, and to get feedback at the end. It was a warm, friendly, and professional experience.

    Sabut, our guide, was knowledgeable, funny, organized, and took a carefully planned approach to acclimatization which meant that the altitude change wasn't a problem for us. If we went back we would choose Mother house again and ask for Sabut as our guide again, 100%.
    We also had great porters, who were always caring, and friendly, and gosh are they strong and fit, shout out to Reuben, Shyam, and Rajeesh!

  • Please do yourself a favour and book your trip with Mother House Treks.

    We did the Manaslu circuit trek in October this year and it was such a wonderful time. Our guide Sabut, and our porters Siam, Rajesh, and Ruben made our trip. Always so kind, caring, engaging, and fun. I've done many expeditions around the world and these guys are some of the very best people I've traveled with. Karna is also a great organizer and communicator. I wouldn't change a thing, and I'll definitely be organizing more trips with them in the future, as long as Sabut is involved ;)


  • Amazing experience with Ronaldo

    As we intended to do the Manaslu Circuit together with the Tsum Valley, we reached out to Karna to amend the existing trek to our requirements. Karna was very professional, however, at the same flexible to attend to our wishes and provided an itinerary, which totally suited our expectations. Even as we had to amend our travel schedule on the very last moment, Karna provided all the flexibility to adjust our trek and, therefore, made this trip happening. The trek took place together with Ronaldo, who did an excellent job. As he knew that the primary goal was to see as much as possible, he provided all the effort to make a great trip happening. He took care even on the smallest things and, hence, assured a great experience taking place. In addition to that, it was a pleasure to spent three weeks togehter in the mountains - many thanks again!!! My recommendation: Go for Manaslu & Tsum Valley and go for Ronaldo!!

  • Cultural and natural treasures: Kathmandu and Annapurna Base Camp trek.

    From the moment we arrived at Kathmandu airport, we felt like we were visiting friends. Karna warmly welcomed us with marigold lays, drove us to a charming hotel, and in the morning we started visiting the Kathmandu Valley with a knowledgeable guide. Prior to starting the Annapurna Trek, we saw all the mandatory historical and cultural sites, with all the rides and meals organized for us. I read that roads and flights inside of Nepal are unpredictable, and it was a great relief, not to have to worry about delays, because somebody else took care of everything. For example, our flight to Pokhara was delayed, which could interfere with our itinerary, yet Jayram, our guide, organized transportation to make up for the lost time, so that the next morning, everything was back on schedule.

    The trek itself was beautiful, gradually ascending through Himalayan valleys, until we arrived at the Annapurna Base Camp. Every day, the views were spectacular, each day, unique, and different from the previous one. Our guide and porters, Kishor and Vijaya, took care of us as if in every lodge they were welcoming us in their own homes. In the end, I don’t know what made the biggest impression on me: the grandeur of the mountains, the clarity of the sky, or the care of the Nepali people. Overall, it was a great cultural adventure.

  • Amazing Tsum Valley and Manaslu Circuit Trek

    We had an amazing experience on our 26-day Tsum Valley and Manaslu Circuit trek.

    Our trip was postponed for 3 years due to COVID - but throughout the 3 years (while waiting for travel opportunities to return) I was able to communicate with Karna from Nepal Mother House Treks via email. From my initial correspondence, Karna was always prompt in replying to my many questions and together we developed a customized itinerary that met our request for shorter walking days - shorter than most "packaged" itineraries. Our trek was truly amazing. Our guide Jayram and our Porter Gyanesh were both excellent. They were patient, supportive, caring, and professional. They kept us safe, well-fed, and informed of every day's opportunities and challenges.

    My husband and I would highly recommend Nepal Mother House Treks & Expedition.


  • Unforgettable Journey to Annapurna Base Camp: A Test of Endurance Amidst Himalayan Grandeur

    Embarking on the Annapurna Base Camp trek was an unforgettable adventure. The entire experience was exceptionally well-organized, thanks to a capable guide and reliable porters who made the journey smooth. The breathtaking views along the trail, especially at the base camp, left me in awe. From lush forests to the majestic Annapurna peaks, every step was rewarded with nature's grandeur. The trek not only tested my endurance but also provided a profound connection with the stunning landscapes of the Himalayas. Undoubtedly, a must-do trek for any avid adventurer seeking a perfect blend of challenge and scenic beauty.

    Karna is very experienced and did an excellent job organizing our adventure.

  • Unforgettable 12-Day Trek in Nepal: A Perfect Blend of Adventure, Fun, and Friendship with Nepal Mother House!

    My and my friends (a group of 7 in total, 5 guys and 2 ladies) had the pleasure to join Nepal Mother House with our guide Shabbut, and 3 porters Shiam, Ruben, and Rambo on a 12-day Manaslu Circuit trek. They were all so funny, caring, kind and strong (!!!). I also unexpectedly upgraded my card-play skills of Dumbal (Yaniv) in the evenings. Thanks also to the company owner Karna for his professional advice and kind company showing me around some spots for buying Nepalse flower seeds to grow a bit of Nepal at home now :) I recommend!

  • The Best Trekking Experience of My Life

    I would highly recommend Nepal Mother House Treks & Expedition. Our Manaslu circuit trip was handled amazingly from start to finish. They took great care of us making sure we arrived in and forth Kathmandu and the airport.

    The trip itself was managed by an excellent guide who kept us informed about what we would expect along the journey and made sure we were fed, happy, and comfortable along the whole journey. This trek would have been daunting without him.

    We also hired some porters to help us carry extra luggage along the way: Their upbeat nature and helpful attitude never stopped. They made sure we were comfortable as much as they could whilst carrying most of our weight.

    If you want to do a trek with an experienced group of hard-working, friendly, and hospitable team then you must choose Nepal Mother House Treks & Expedition. I promise on the mountain you will be thankful to have such a fantastic team with you!
