  • Everest Base Camp Trek
    We are very impressed and pleased with the EBC trek organised by Mosaic Adventure - the process has been very seamless and Raj has been very responsive to our emails, including accommodating to our requests of staying the night at Ramenchap before flying out to Lukla the next morning.Bhumi Amgain's (our guide) professionalism, friendliness and thoughtfulness has been exceptional from start (picking us up at the Kathmandu airport) to end (when we left Lukla to Kathmandu). His advice on renting the duffel bag to prevent our backpacks from being dusty was very thoughtful and we truly appreciated his hospitable touch on providing freshly cut apples and pomegranate after every dinner. As it was just two of us in the group, Bhumi was very patient in letting us walk at our own pace and taking breaks when necessary as well as offering to carry our backpacks on short day hikes to reduce fatigue. Bhumi also demonstrated good knowledge in educating us of the surrounding mountains throughout the EBC trek and also the local sherpa culture or the Nepalese culture in general. A notable incident whereby Bhumi was very helpful was helping to tape up a friend's hiking boots which was coming apart with duct tape to ensure it lasted till the end of the trip.All in all, we would definitely strongly recommend Mosaic Adventure and Bhumi as the guide for any friends who are interested in doing the EBC trek in the future.
  • Everest Base Camp Trek
    It has been a delight to deal with Mosaic Adventure; we appreciate our very excellent guide. We will recommend your service especially to all my friends and colleagues. Many thanks!
  • Everest Base Camp Trek
    We had a EBC trek organized by the Mosaic adventure and it was amazing. We were able to organize everything from Italy, getting all the information we needed very quickly. They organized our trip exactly as we wanted and every detail was perfect. The staff (both the ones in the office and the ones who did the trekking with us) were very competent and careful. A great experience!!! For sure when I'll go back to Nepal I'll organize another trek with them!
  • Everest Base Camp Trek
    Me and my partner had an excellent treking experience with mosiac. We did the two week everest base camp trek and had an absolutely amazing time. Everything about the trip was well organised from the tour of kathmandu before the trek (which took in 4 of the major sites and was extremely informative and fun) to the transport and accommodation throughout the trek. Our treking guide, Pralhad, was really good, always making sure we were okay, he was really patient encouraging us to walk slowly, answering all our questions and he also took good care of us both when we got a little bit sick towards the end of the trip! The accommodation on the trek was basic of course but the places we stayed always seemed pretty nice compared to some of the other places around. Mosaic were very accommodating, for example we had to put the trek date back just a few days before it started and they arranged this immediately with no complaints, answered all our questions throughout and were extremely organised and efficient (every time someone was suposed to collect us from somewhere they were on time with their mosaic sign, friendly and helpful) also they arranged to donate our unwanted treking clothes to a local orphanage for us. Mosiac are a really great company with helpful staff, I would definitely use them again if I had the chance to return to Nepal.
  • Everest Base Camp Trek
    My wife and I used Mosaic for a Everest Base Camp trek and were incredibly delighted with the Mosaic experience. Our guide was spectacular, the group was small, and there was personalized attention that the larger tour companies cannot provide. I can not recommend this company high enough.
  • Poon Hill Trek
    I’ve had the most awesome time here in Nepal. Thanks to Mosaic! for a lovely Ghorepani Poonhill trek! I’ve met lovely people; seen the greatest sights. All the memories I”ve made, I will carry them for life. Our guide Thakur was cool!!! Cheers!
  • Poon Hill Trek
    We returned from our Trek Dec 28 and we wanted to let you know how wonderful it was. My daughter Lisa, my son Steven and I had such a memorable trip thanks to our amazing guide Bhumi Amgain and our porters Nabin and Kumar. Bhumi was extremely knowledgeable and we felt safe at all times having him with us. Since I am older he stayed close by me at all times to help me and I appreciated that very much. His kindness, knowledge of the mountains and fun spirit all made each day special. Nabin and Kumur were also so helpful. They too made sure we were safe and happy. Lisa and Steven are already talking about returning one day soon for another trek with your company and having Bhumi as a guide again!
  • Poon Hill Trek
    From the beginning to the end of the journey was perfectly plan by Mosaic. The second day of city tour in Kathmandu was informative guided by a professional guide (Vishnu), able to answer all the question and telling the history and story with no doubt.We started poon hill trek on third day guided by Shanker with a porter name Nemus. Both of them just like our friends accompany all day long, we trek, eat, play all in together brought us full of precious memory in trek. I can say both them made this trek into fun and interesting, we been chatting, exchanging jokes and etc along the trek. It was an enjoyable journey with no bored, great arrangement, clean hotel, nice food, wonderful scenery, friendly people and of course professional helpful guide and porter.If you are first timer or have no idea on trek planning, please go for Mosaic. They would arrange everything with no worries. No doubt on their arrangement and services.
  • Poon Hill Trek
    From the first email, Mosaic Adventure Trek and Tour was a positive experience. In fact, I can truly say that we never experienced such a high level of service in our lives. I travel between 120,000-150,000 miles around the world every year using the services of many foreign travel companies and staying at every possible class of hotel. The professionalism and kindness of the office staff and of both our guide and porter blew me away because it was better than superb! Madhav answered every email inquiry quickly and thoroughly and took care of every detail of coordinating our trip. Mosaic was responsible for organizing our trek, six transfers, two internal flights, and one city tour of Kathmandu. On our incoming international flight to Kathmandu, our plane was diverted to New Delhi because of fog. I knew that we would miss our domestic flight to Pokhara, but there was no need to worry because Madhav changed our flight while we were still circling over Nepal. Madhav had rebooked us on the last flight of the day which was completely filled-up likely due to the cancellation of the mid-day flight. I am not sure of how Madhav got us onto the flight, but he did! We were relieved to learn that he was watching our flight status and took every action to make sure our trip would proceed as planned. Mosaic picked us up at the international terminal and brought us to the domestic terminal for our flight to Pokhara. In between, we got the sleeping bag he had brought for me and we decided we would not need the down jackets he had also brought. We arrived in Pokhara, and again were met by an agent for Mosaic who took us to our hotel. Two days later, we embarked on a five day trek to Ulleri, Ghorepani, Poon Hill, Tadapani, and Ghandruk with incredible Keshar as our guide and amazing Susil as our porter. Wow! Keshar is not only highly educated and knowledgable about Nepal's history and culture, but, he is also a kind, sensitive, and wonderful human being. He was highly respected and liked by all of the local village people and tourists throughout the trek. Keshar watched out for every detail of our trek. Susil was a gem of a person and provided the absolute best possible service; he always came to help us pack up, always had a smile on his face, was gentle and kind. Susil is also adorable!!! At the end of each day's trek, Susil would trek ahead of us to get to the tea house to secure the best possible room in advance of our arrival. Then, he would trek back to us and take our daypacks. On several occasions, the trail got slippery and a little bit scary from excessive mud, snow, or ice and Susil came to rescue me by literally holding my hand and safely leading the way. Susil took our meal orders, prepared a fresh fruit platter every evening after dinner with fruit that was purchased at the local market before the trek and carried by him just for us, and was virtually at our beck and call. Keshar made sure that every detail of the trek, rooms, meals, and everything was seamless and perfect. Honestly, I have never seen such genuine attention to detail; we were spoiled beyond our expectations. Keshar and Susil are passionate about their jobs and truly devoted to making their guests' trips the best possible experience of a lifetime. They did not even go to bed until they knew that we were settled into our room for the night. We did spend another day in Pokhara, and then flew back to Kathmandu. We were very lucky to have Keshar as our guide for our pre-arranged tour of Kathmandu. His depth of knowledge was exceptional. If you are planning to request Keshar and Susil for your own trek, you may find they are unavailable in early 2015 because I am booking them, again, for my family!!!! I will say, once again, that Mosaic Tours is the best tour company I have ever dealt with anywhere ever. Do not hesitate to book a tour with them as you will be dealing with the most professional, caring, fairly priced company.
  • Poon Hill Trek
    Awesome trek to Poon Hill with amazing views! Poon Hill is an easy, pleasant trek - partly through the forest, with amazing views of the mountains.
  • Manaslu Circuit Trek
    I was on the less popular Manaslu trek with Mosaic. Mosaic offered one of the most competitive pricing for this trek but be assured that the good price in no way compromise the level of service rendered. Madhav, the business manager, was very prompt in replying to all my pre-trip enquiries which prompted me to sign up the trek with Mosaic ultimately. Many other agencies took ages to reply if they did reply at all.After meeting Madhav in person, I find that he is very friendly and helpful and is always ready to help with any matters regardless they are trek or non-trek related which is a really nice gesture. Administratively wise, I have absolutely no issues with Mosaic. Also, the accomodation that Mosaic arranged in Kathmandu is one of the best if not the best in its class The company also appears to have strict hiring criteria and their guides are of exceptional quality. My guide for Manaslu is Krishna who is in his early thirties and has a very good command of English. He's very familiar with the route having been on Manaslu trek for the 10th time (unlike other guides I've met on the trek, some could not even identify which is the manslu peak!). Krishna was very competent and was able to advise accurately the terrain and the places we are crossing or about to cross. On the big day of crossing Larke pass, my group was the only one that set off after daylight (quarter to 6) while other groups with guides less familiar with the trek decided to set off in the dark as early as 2am. My group was the 2nd to reach the destination that day but took the least time albeit me and the danish girl in the group may not be the fittest person around. I attribute the efficiency to Krishna's familiarity of the trail and because we did not have to spend unnecessary energy trekking in the dark. I can't say for other treks, but for Manaslu Krishna is definitely the guy. Members and guides of other groups often came to him for advice which says a lot about his competency on this trek. Beside being competent, Krishna was also very caring and attentive to all our needs. He pays attention to the food we eat and will do the cooking himself if he feels the cook at the tea house is not good enough. He also carried a lot of fruits with him that last us throughout the trek even though it means additional load for him. Having fruits every night was one of the few luxuries you will learn to appreciate on the manaslu trek. In short, I simply could not fault him in any ways. I simply could not imagine myself signing up with another company for a Nepal trek especially after having seen other trekkers having lots of issues with their guides (poor English, overcharging, lying, under aged porters etc). I was really glad I chose Mosaic and I will definitely go back to them the nest time I'm in Nepal. I would highly recommend Mosaic to anyone looking for an enjoyable trip in Nepal.
  • Manaslu Circuit Trek
    We couldn’t have been happier with the Manaslu Circuit Trek, it was truly a magical trip and Laura and I managed fine. Santosh was the perfect guide for us, and we will make sure to rate you guys well and recommend you if we hear of anyone wishing to travel to Nepal for a trek! All the best, Laura & Sam
  • Annapurna Base Camp Trek
    My partner and I highly recommend Mosaic Adventure to anyone looking to organise treks and city tours in Nepal. We emailed them ahead of our holiday and were extremely pleased by how helpful Madhav was in suggesting different options for our tour. You should just email Mosaic to find out about all the amazing services they offer! We trekked to Annapurna base camp, which featured some incredible scenery - the sunrise at Poon Hill, blooming rhododendron, huge bambsoo forests, lovely Gurung villages, the Annapurna sanctuary, hot springs in Jhinu and much, much more. Our group consisted of 4 tourists, 1 guide and 2 porters and we all got on really well, playing cards together after trekking and talking about our different home countries. Our guide and porters were very flexible which allowed us to each walk at our own pace and to adapt the itinerary when needed. We think it is much better to have a guide and porters in Nepal as we learned so much about Nepali culture from them. They always arranged for us to get the best rooms in the lodges and made sure we would get good food after trekking. It is also much safer as they know all the routes and know where there is danger of avalanches coming down. It was really not much more expensive than doing it all yourself, but so much more enjoyable. Back in Kathmandu we enjoyed a day city-tour organised by Mosaic which was also excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable about all the sites we visited and we were able to visit many more sites in one day than we would have been able to on our own. We visited Pashupatinath, Bhakthapur as well as Bodnath stupa, which are all must-sees if you are in the area. Thanks, Madhav, for helping us in having such a great holiday in Nepal!
  • Annapurna Base Camp Trek
    My girlfriend and I booked a trek to Annapurna Base Camp, including a Kathmandu city day tour, with Mosaic Adventure at the end of May. We weren't sure about the best destination due to the oncoming of monsoon season. Raj (owner of Mosaic Adventure) sat down with us, helped to plan our itinerary, suggested the best route for the weather and time of year. We really felt he had our best interest in mind. The price was not the cheapest but we got the best value for our money. Included in the price was down sleeping bags and jackets. Most of all, we had the best possible guide. Krishna is a very experienced guide, and a wealth of knowledge. He was attentive to our needs, and we were very comfortable spending time together; he made our trip extremely memorable. We even got private Nepalese lessons. Thank you Mosaic for making our trek to ABC, an experience we will never forget.
  • Annapurna Base Camp Trek
    Mosaic Adventure is a superb travel agency. We recommend it without a doubt and it's human team deserves your confidence. It's manager, Madhav, and the two guides we worked with, Probin and Pralhad are 100% professionals able to deal with costumer needs and the with "tricky" task of moving around in the Nepal trekking universe. Probably you don't know really a person (or a company) till you have to deal with difficulties and challenges. Our trek to the Annapurna Base Camp on October 2017 had both. We were unable to reach our goal due to an exceptional amount of trekkers that literally fulfilled all available beds in the final stages of the route (even on out of room spaces). We have lots of complains about the Nepal park organisation and the booking system itself but We can only recognize the superb job the guides and Mosaic did to solve the problem. We have to say that, fortunately, we had spare days enough in Nepal to open a new window opportunity but that opportunity was possible only with the determination of Mosaic to solve the problem and take responsibility of us. We had the chance of talk with other trekkers and analyse the work of other guides and our conclusion is that Probin and Pralhad are in the top of the list, with plenty of experience on these routes and leadership skills to deal with group behaviour (not an easy thing). The Mosaic policy about porters (10kg max per person / 2 bags per porter) can restrain a bit the costumer comfort but is far more human and reasonable than others we saw on our route and it's something all trekkers should ask before decide. About the routes: Any person going to ABC trek must know that there is serious problem up there and that the Nepal park organisation is not assuming its responsibility (on hi-season at least). We recommend the panoramic Annapurna trek (till Poon Hill) and We also recommend the Everest panoramic trek (till Tengboche). Both are astonishing walks on incredible landscapes admiring the top of the world in front of you. I should repeat both and we are considering new trips to Nepal as soon as we can.

  • Annapurna Base Camp Trek
    We really enjoyed our trekking in Nepal to the Annapurna Base Camp. Everything was well organized and we felt comfortable every single day. Our guide was very friendly and experienced..Simply the best!!! We would like to thank Mosaic Adventures for the great time...and hopefully we will have the chance to trek to EBC next time. Greetings from the 2 Swiss girls.
  • Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho Lake Trekking
    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.
  • Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho Lake Trekking
    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!!
  • Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho Lake Trekking
    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.
  • Annapurna Circuit with Tilicho Lake Trekking
    I've just returned to Kathmandu completing the Annapurna circuit trek organized by Mosaic Adventure. They provide me with an excellent guide Pralhad and porter Hari. They took care of me for over 15 days. First going at the adjective pace and then selecting very good guest house all the way until Pokhara. Pralhad also answered all my too many questions about Nepal, its culture and its people. All the information given by Mosaic Adventures about the trek was very good and my dealings with them were always direct and honest. I also did a one day tour of 6 temples in Kathmandu and its valley and the guide and driver provided were friendly and knowledgeable. I plan to recommend Mosaic Adventure to any friends and family visiting Nepal in the future.
  • Langtang Valley Trek
    We really enjoyed the Langtang Valley Trek! The area was very beautiful and we like the change of scenery during the trek. The communication with Mosaic was very smooth, we got quick and elaborate replies. We enjoyed and felt that we were taken care of very well. BN was a great and knowledgeable guide and Suresh was always in a very good mood. The only thing we were sad about during the trek was that we couldn't go to Tsergo Ri because of the weather conditions, but still the trek was challenging enough. Although it was cold outside we still felt very comfortable the whole time! We would definitely recommend doing the Langtang Valley Trek with Mosaic.
  • Langtang Valley Trek
    We had an excellent Langtang valley trekking experience with Mosaic Adventure. Our guide Rudra and porter Nabin were superb throughout the entire trip! They were very patient and hospitable, always ensuring that we were well taken care of and meeting all our requests. They always made sure we were comfortable and well fed.Pre-trip, Madhav was also very responsive in answering all our enquiries and flexible in scheduling.The Kathmandu city tour by Keshar was very insightful. He is very knowledgeable.Well done to the Mosaic Team!
  • Langtang Valley Trek
    Just returned from trek and the mountain were awesome. My guide Thakur & my proter Harkalama were great. The Nepali people we met in the mountain were friendly and smiling. Beware the leech & remember to smile.
  • Langtang Valley Trek
    I and my friend just got back from Langtang - We can highly recommend the Langtang Valley Trek itself (forest/snowy peaks) but also Mosaic and our guide Bhumi and Porter Kumar. The trip was well organised, professional and Bhumi made sure my friend and I had everything we wanted. Also think it is a very fair price for what you get. The only watch point is the 7 hours drive from Kathmandu as the roads are pretty bad - if you can I would recommend getting a jeep as we did!
  • Langtang Valley Trek
    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!
  • Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes Trek via Cho La Pass
    I trekked with mosaic adventures for a 16 day trek to the Everest region in April 2014. I booked with Madhav in Kathmandum and went for the the Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo Ri and the Cho La pass. Our guide from Mosaic Adventure was Shanker, with Mingma and Rama as our porters. The company was great about all aspects of the hike. We got in to Lukla on a day where most flights missed out. The accommodation was good and the itinerary coming via the Cho La pass made for a far more interesting trek than the standard Everest Base Camp route, and also a fair bit more challenging. I would highly recommend trekking in the Everest or Annapurna region with Mosaic Adventure, as they were a great team to hike with. Two members from our crew decided not to go over the Cho La pass and Mosaic were happy to split the group and managed the trip so both groups had an enjoyable time. The guides and porters were happy to point things out, go at our pace, laugh and joke around with us and each other. If anyone was not feeling well it was looked after immediately and professionally. The Everest region itself was beyond spectacular with highlights including Gokyo Ri, the Guzemba glacier crossing, Cho Las pass, and Kala Pattar. I would absolutely trek with Madhav, Shanker and Mosaic Adventures in the future, and recommend them to anyone looking for a great company to trek with. Thanks guys!
  • Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes Trek via Cho La Pass
    Finding Mosaic was my extremely good luck. In the beginning I was attracted by feedback from many happy clients, well-formulated description of services and tourist products offered by the company in addition to competitive pricing. During negotiation I enjoyed efficiency with which my queries were handled. The way Madhav has addressed my concerns made the decision-making on the Everest Base Camp and Gokyo trek really stress-free and easy. And my personal encounter with the company was even better. It delivered to the promise. Logistical arrangements, including airport pickups, hotel in Kathmandu, accommodations and meals during the trek, were impeccable. I would like to praise Mosaic for the ability to attract very interesting and pleasant people to work for them. My special thanks to Basu, who guided my discovery of spiritual treasures of the city, secrets of mandala painting and magic properties of singing bowls. He is so keen and enthusiastic to share his passion for spiritual and cultural history, that it is impossible to stay unmoved. And Rudra is the real mountain gem. It is a privilege and fortune to have him as a guide and it is just impossible to imagine the trek without him. Never felt more secure and confident, and he is a perfect company to go atop of any mountain. I feel honored to join the group of many happy clients and recommend Mosaic to my friends and people planning a trip to Nepal. As for me, now Mosaic is my main entry point into the world of trekking and adventure in Nepal.
  • Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes Trek via Cho La Pass
    We booked our trip to Everest Base Camp and the Gokyo Lakes as an independent group of 3 adults (we are a family) with the recommendation of Madhav. He was the one I corresponded with while arranging this trip over the internet. He was excellent in always getting back to me instantly as long as he was open (14 hour time/day difference). Once in Kathmandu, we met with Raj, who actually coordinated the trip and side trips. He was excellent. He was always in touch with our guide to make sure that we were safe and having a wonderful time. Our guide, Shanker, and two porters, Chiring and Kami (not sure of spellings) were excellent. Shanker kept a close eye on us and always made us feel safe and happy. He would always book teahouses each night that he knew we would approve of (and we could be fussy)! The porters carried our heavy gear and were always so pleasant and helpful for any of our needs. I cannot say enough about these guys. When we were tired, hungry and grumpy, they would always cheer us up. We originally wanted to trek to the Lakes first and then over to EBC. Shanker watched the way we trekked and felt it would be better for us to go to EBC first and then over the Cho La Pass to the Lakes. Thank goodness we listened to him because after EBC the Cho La Pass was closed due to snow and nobody was able to go over it. If we had gone to the Lakes first, we would have missed our trip to EBC. ALWAYS listen to your guide. Thank you Shanker!!! While in Kathmandu, Mosaic booked us excellent hotels. Raj was able to see the types of accommodations we liked and made sure that each time we needed a hotel that he booked us into one we would approve of. He set up excellent sight seeing tours and also a trip to Chitwan National Park. We were always extremely pleased with any tour he arranged. I cannot say enough about Mosaic Adventure. Madhav, Raj, Shanker and the porters are the best!! If we go back to Nepal, Mosaic will be our choice of outfitters. They offer a very fair price for their trips and excellent service. Thank you for making our trip a safe and wonderful time.
  • Everest High Passes Challenging Trek
    I finally settled back to my normal life But Camny and I are still full of gorgeous Memories on our trek to Everest base camp with Purna. We just wanna one more time say our biggest thank you for the most beautiful Experience of our lives Thanks and please say hi to Purna.
  • Discover Bhutan Tour
    Rewarding and fulfilling Bhutan tour goes beyond my expectation, one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Spectacular scenery, adventurous travel, spiritual and welcoming people and the politeness and competence of the staff of Mosaic Adventure combined to make this not only a truly outstanding holiday but also a lovely and precious life experience.
  • Discover Bhutan Tour
    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.
  • Island Peak Climbing via Everest Base Camp
    Had an awesome trip. Mosaic arranged everything - Madhav was helpful at the office in ktm. Our guide Krishna was excellent. It seemed that he truly cared about our experience and safety. Have used multiple out fitters ang guides around the world and these guys are one of the best. Reasonable prices especially when compared to western companies. Climbing island peak was definitely the highlight.
  • Upper Mustang Trek
    We went as a family with 2 teens. Upper Mustang Trek isn't for everyone but here is what made it extraordinary: - Our guide, Khrisna was very considerate and experienced. - He made us feel safe and served us very well. - He played with the kids, he tailored the treks to our ability, he went beyond the call of duty to ensure we had an enjoyable experience with respect to hotel, food, relations with the locals... - Krishna worked with the porters, engaged and worked with us and truly made us feel that we were supported by a great team and that we were part of a team. - Khrisha and Mosaic seemed always well prepared and able to manage the unexpected, for example when our plane was cancelled and we had to jeep down the Himalayas in monsoon pouring rain. -the porters were fabulous. One was chosen because of his knowledge of the region, which was very helpful. When Khrisna was busy with the kids, he made sure we had someone that could help us out if needed. There is no doubt in my mind that I felt supported by the best guide and the best team of all the groups we met on the trek. I didnt have a lot of margin to negotiate on price, I did not, and I am glad I went with the organization I felt was the most competent and best rated. Why? Mustang is not an easy trek for a regular family. Days can be long. Accommodations not luxurious. However, having a good team with you to learn about a fascinating region, see amazing sights and challenge yourself and bond better as a family. That is what made it an extraordinary experience. Thanks Mosaic.
  • Tamang Heritage Homestay Trek
    First discovered Mosaic Adventure at the Adventure Travel show and had good vibes about the company -- with total justification -- so if you're thinking of a trek/trip to Nepal then go with the people who know -- go with Mosaic Adventure and you can be assured you are in safe hands. We did the Tamang Heritage Trail -- extremely well organised and at a very reasonable price. Madhav - in the office -- answered all emails - however insignificant -promptly and helpfully and when we met up in the office all the staff made us - 2 ladies of a certain age - feel very welcome. Our guide - Pralhad -- was terrific -- very helpful, very thoughtful, nothing was too much trouble - and most important totally professional and someone in whom we had the utmost trust. Thank you Pralhad -- you were brilliant. I know it's a hackneyed phrase but everyone made us feel not just like clients -- but friends. Sincere thanks to all of you for making it such a fantastic trek -- here's to the next time.
  • Chitwan National Park Tour
    Thanks to Mosaic for a really well organized and professional package. We had a very experienced and lovely guide. Loved the Chitwan Jungle Safari!! Thanks so much for your friendly service and for a memorable trip.
  • Gokyo Lakes Trek
    I wanted to write you a note thanking you, your team and especially Ramesh for the quality of our Gokyo Lake Trekking trip and the professionalism you treated us with. Yvonne and I have done several similar trips together and I can easily say that your organization was the best we have dealt with. In particular, I deeply appreciated the way Ramesh and you helped me once I got sick -- it was above and beyond the normal service levels. I am recovering quickly and Yvonne and I are already discussing possible future adventures.
  • A Taste of Nepal Tour
    Have just come back from a superb 12 days in Nepal trekking with Mosaic. Having made the last minute decision to book the trip I was sent an email reply almost immediately from Madhav who was very accommodating and efficient. Madhav also met me personally on arrival at the hotel in Kathmandu, on my return and saw me off to the airport on my departure. I was booked into the Thamel Ecolodge which has been mentioned in other reviews - lovely, clean, cozy little place with great staff. This was my first time trekking and as I was travelling alone was a little nervous. However my guide Krishna proved very capable, professional and attentive - and with a good understanding of English was a great companion the entire trip. He ensured I ate my fill at each meal, that I refilled my water bottle at every opportunity and was really very good and patient about making sure I took all the photos I wanted. Mosaic also provided a porter - Gopi - who continually amazed me with his strength and stamina. And who never stopped smiling. On my return to Kathmandu Madhav arranged for a City Tour. My new guide was Keesar - who provided me with an in depth and detailed understanding of Buddhism, Hinduism and Nepalese history. Keesar was professional and courteous and took the time to answer my many, many questions. All in all a brilliant trip - I'd recommend Mosaic to anyone planning a trip to Nepal.
  • A Taste of Nepal Tour
    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.
  • A Taste of Nepal Tour
    We've had a great trip around Nepal. Really enjoyed the beautiful countryside & meeting all the villagers. Also had an amazing time at the Chitwan Jungle Safari. Specially enjoyed swimming with the elephant and spotting a rhino on our jungle walk.
  • A Taste of Nepal Tour
    The many elements of our trip to Nepal were seamlessly and brilliantly put together by Madhav at Mosaic. With knowledgeable and friendly guides we got the most out of this trip. We found the personal care provided by Madhav and Keshar, Arjun, Santosh and Azay (guides and porters) was exceptional, particularly when we got into a few scrapes. This care even extended after we'd left the country. I would readily recommend Mosaic to anyone.
  • A Taste of Nepal Tour
    The tiring but extremely satisfying trek, the bumpy but exhilarating elephant ride, last but not least the packed and informative day of Kathmandu valley sight seeing!! Thanks for the unforgettable Taste of Nepal Tour and memories of a lifetime! Lucci Lugee Liyeung - http://www.liyeung.com.
  • Nagarkot Chisapani Trek – 2 night 3 day
    I had some idea of what I wanted to see & do in Nepal: Kathmandu temples, the Himalayas and trekking, but it was Mosaic that pulled it all together so beautifully. However, what really made it an amazing trip was my utterly phenomenal guide, Sushil Nepal (yes, Nepal is actually his surname). I made it clear to Sushil when we met that I what I was most interested in was the "real" Nepal, and Sushil delivered beyond all expectations. Here are some highlights of my Nepal trip that was entirely due to Sushil's efforts to make my trip one to remember: * His introduction to goat curry and buffalo momo, washed down with Everest beer, while overlooking the Boudhanath stupa. * Hindu palm reading in the backroom of Sushil's uncle's Nepali homeopathic drug store. * Speaking to his friend of the family, the Kumari's caretaker to catch a glimpse of the living godess. * While trekking, arranging an impromptu meeting with an Untouchable family and seeing their home. * Having a cold beer and spicy Nepali snacks, with a view of the Himalayas while trekking through Nargakot. * Arranging for a three person motorcycle ride up rough and winding mountain roads for an amazing adventure.With any other guide, I would have had a great time. With Sushil, however, I had the Nepal adventure of a lifetime and made a wonderful friend.
  • Nagarkot Chisapani Trek – 2 night 3 day
    At very short notice just before the festival they organized & on a day which suited what I wanted. The guide was good and patient and helpful. The porter was excellent and we were a cheerful happy threesome.
  • Nagarkot Chisapani Trek – 2 night 3 day
    I found Mosaic Adventure's review on tripadvisor and as it was so good booked my trip to Nepal through them. I did the Chitwan adventure and the Kathmandu Valley 3 day trek. Madhav patiently provided answers to all my queries and organised everything to connect with the extra activities I requested. It was a breeze having them organise it all as it all ran smoothly - drivers arrived on time to take us to our next destination. Our guides were all very knowledgeable and pleasant and our drivers very skilled considering the mayhem that is traffic in Nepal. When I tore a calf muscle while trekking Madhav easily organised a driver to collect me and drive the last leg to meet my companion at the end of the trek. Overall a very positive experience!
  • Nagarkot Chisapani Trek – 2 night 3 day
    A short but great trip in the Kathmandu Valley. Many thanks to our guide Thakur and our porter Hari. We really enjoyed our walks and the amazing views.

  • Kathmandu Pokhara Tour
    We had a brilliant trip with our 4 month son last February. From the outset, Madhav was very responsive to our email queries and put together a great itinerary for our little family, including honest pricing for our hotel upgrades in both Kathmandu and Pokhara. We were greeted at the airport by our guide Keshar, who stayed with us throughout our 5 day trip. We had good cars and drivers assigned to us. It was no problem adding on activities such as paragliding in Pokhara or slightly adjusting our itinerary timings to accommodate our baby's needs. We definitely felt we made the most of our short time in Nepal and when we return one day to do a trek, we will for sure be in touch with Mosaic again.
  • Kathmandu Pokhara Tour
    I and my friend decided to go on a the 6-day Discover Nepal Tour with Mosaic. We only had 6 days, but the Mosaic team made sure that we maximized and enjoyed our journey - we saw all the major attractions in kathmandu, pokhara, nagarkot, phewa lake, bhaktapur, we were able to do some trekking on the mountainside, boating in phewa lake, ride a plane to catch a glimpse of the magnificent mount everest, and the best thing was, we didnt feel rushed. our guide Keshar was very knowledgeable, very helpful, and had a good command of English. The drivers were friendly all throughout, and Madhav, our trip coordinator, called us everyday just to see how we were doing. They were also very punctual... when they said pickup time was at 545am, they meant just that... 545am. sharp. :) we're definitely going back to nepal, and the next time we do that, it'll always be with Mosaic Adventure Trek and Tours. :)
  • Kathmandu Pokhara Tour
    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!
