Best Guide Ever! Keshar Jung Thapa is the guide for you. If you want to experience Nepal, explore a cave, trek the Himalayans, visit a museum, meditate at a monastery then choose this tour. We did all that and more. This was a three credit college class with reviews at every turn. I have a deeper understanding of Nepal, Hinduism and Buddhism. We visited sacred sites, stupas, and mountain communities. Keshar packed every day full of enlightened views of Nepal culture. He made our visit an adventure for sure!
I went on a 3-week solo trek around Annapurna Circuit summiting Thorong La Pass (5416 m) in April 2016. I had planned to do this journey for 25 years (sic!), as I viewed it as part of my spiritual pilgrimage. And it truly became the journey of my life with unforgettable memories imprinted in my soul: breath taking sceneries and wonder of nature with wordless beauty.My English speaking guide Bhabanath and smiling porter Ram always tried to adapt to my needs and wishes. Worth mentioning is the bus trip between Jomsom and Tatepani, which in my eyes turned into the scariest bus trip ever due to steep cliffs and big rocks (haha). So, without any hesitation or complaints, we jumped off the bus and walked the last mile (thank you). Among other memorable examples, I especially appreciated that my guide who knew the local people at the teahouses, invited me into their kitchens to enjoy "homemade" Dal Baht in front of open fires. Coming so close to the local people in the mountains, warmed my heart. I also seldom laughed so much when we killed time and coldness by playing cards up in High Camp. In Muktinath I was invited to join my guide and porter early in the morning to do a Hindu ceremony. So, apart from the trekking experience, I want to thank Bhaba and Ram for these unexpected cultural experiences. As the icing of the cake, I was treated every evening with hand peeled fruit, mostly pomegranates, which happened to be my favourite fruit. All in all, both my guide and my always smiling porter were exceptionally service minded all the way. The office manager Madhav was also very responsive in answering all my questions and helpful in customizing the trek according to my wishes. Therefore, I would not hesitate to use Mosaic again next time I go to Nepal. Thank you so much for helping me to realize the journey of my life.
It was an amazing experience. Everything was well organized by the agency: transportation, accommodation, permits, tims and guide. The guide did his job very well! He was concerned about us, had a good eye on us when we were walking and he also listened to our proposals and ideas. It was very nice to have a good guide like this. The Annapurna Circuit Trek is very beautiful! with a lot of wonderful views and panoramas. The Throong-la pass was amazing :)! It was a long day (start early in the morning), it was tiring to walk on that altitude but it was more than worth to do all this efforts!It will be an experience I will never forget! Thanks a lot Mosaic!!
The adventure I had was both amazing and challenging. I rushed my body to the limits and also had my eyes opened to the most beautiful sights. I made lifelong friends with other trekkers and shared moments of sickness, happiness and achievement, all with the trust and joy of my excellent guide Pralhad who I will never forget.
We are really thankful to Mosaic Adventure for a fabulous Langtang Valley Trek. Cozy equipments, great selection of teahouses, great food, caring guide and mostly the clear and stunning views makes our trip a great trip that will imprint in the memory. Heartly thankful to everyone for everything!
Wow I was surprised with the delightful service. I never thought I could do my tour to Tibet like this. My all the questions answered so fast, it looks like our guide contain an encyclopedia of Tibet in his mind, he knows his stuff so well. I really enjoyed my trip to Tibet. Thanks Mosaic Team.
This was my first visit to Nepal and the experience was pleasant. Mr Madhav (My tour coordinator) was excellent right from the beginning in his response to my mails or phone calls. The trip was perfect and it couldn't have been better, I would strongly recommend this company to anybody who wants to visit Nepal.
We are just back from a Bhutan tour, Bhutan would not be an unbelievable experience without Mosaic's helpful, friendly and cheerful staffs. We really appreciate our guide for his friendliness. He holds lots of information about the places we visit; he became part of our team. Highly recommend Mosaic Adventure for all adventure seekers in Nepal and Bhutan.
I completed the Annapurna Circuit trek in October and had the time of my life. I have done guided trips throughout the U.S. and Africa but this trip in Nepal was unforgettable. Madhav responds to all emails very quickly and does a great job organizing all aspects of the trip. The trek was amazing; the views, people and food were truly spectacular. However, the greatest part of the trip was getting to know our guide and porter. Without question, we had the best guide and porter out of all other groups we came across during the trek. Krishna was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and I felt that we were in good hands as soon as the trek started. One thing that they did that no other tour company/guide did along the trail was provide us with fresh fruit every night after dinner. The fresh apples and pomegranates were a great treat and improved moral on tougher days. The friendship we developed with Krishna and our porter Krishna was the highlight of our trip. I am looking forward to coming back to Nepal and would not consider any other company than Mosaic Adventures and Krishna Basnet as a guide.
