  1. We went the Manaslu trek with this organization and felt looked after really well. The guide could speak enough English to have simple conversations and he always asked us for our wishes. When we were tired or even ill he switched backpack with us (his wasn’t even half the weight of ours 🙂 ) so that we could menage even the high larke pass (5.106 m). Even after the trek they were really taking care that we arrive phokara safely and even called our hotel there. Our extra luggage was already waiting there for us because they send it there from Kathmandu.
    All together we can say that everything was organized perfectly and we can recommend them to every trekker:)

  2. Great Panorama Treks and Expedition organised a 14 days trip for us in the Manaslu Region and it awesome trip. Their attention to detail, professionalism and honest advice are second to none. We got an itinerary which was uniquely tailored to our needs and abilities making each day as enjoyable and stress free as possible. Rinji and his team continued to be a source of assistance when we have needed it, ensuring we didn’t miss any of the highlights of Kathmandu and Pokhara surrounding areas. We certainly wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone visiting to Nepal, Trekking,Tour,Peak climbing and any other activities. Thank you guys for a trip of a lifetime!!

  3. Ich hab zusammen mit einer Freundin den Manaslu Circuit Trek vom 17. bis 28. Februar 2023 gemacht und es war eine wahnsinnig tolle Erfahrung mit Phurinji, Guide und Gründer von Great Panorama Treks!
    Er war sehr erfahren und hat uns vor und während der Wanderung perfekt geführt. Er hat uns immer gut beraten und sich während der gesamten Wanderung um unsere Wünsche und Meinungen gekümmert. Es fühlte sich wirklich an als wären wir ein Team!

    Auch als wir wegen der aufkommenden Wetterbedingungen auf die letzte Übernachtung vor der Überquerung über den Larke Pass verzichten mussten, gab er gute Ratschläge und ließ uns als Team gemeinsam entscheiden, immer unsere Sicherheit im Auge.
    Abgesehen davon ist er eine sehr lustige Person, die man gerne um sich hat. Er macht viele Witze und ist immer für einen Spaß oder lustige Fotos zu haben, was uns die beste Zeit in Nepal und auf unserer Wanderung beschert hat!

    Er half uns sogar bei der Buchung von Bustickets und allem, nachdem wir die Wanderung beendet hatten, und gab uns viele Empfehlungen in Pokhara!

    Es war unser erstes Mal in Nepal und Trekking dort und ich würde auf jeden Fall wiederkommen und werde auf jeden Fall wieder Trekking mit Rinji und Great Panorama Treks machen!

    Ich kann ihn nur wärmstens empfehlen, da er ein erfahrener, freundlicher und lustiger Führer und Begleiter ist!
    Danke Rinji für diese unvergessliche Zeit!
