"Rustic Himalayan Adventures is not just another trekking agency. Why are they different? Because what they do it's not only their job, it's their passion and they put their heart into it. While focussing on less touristy and rather untouched travel routes <3 they customise the trip according to your needs, desires and (time)limitations by giving priceless suggestions and tips. The short trek in Kathmandu Valley I did with my lovely guide Priscilla was amazing. Priscilla couldn't care more about me and she was so much more than "just a guide". The overall experience with Rustic Himalayan Adventure was great, authentic and refreshing - I highly recommend them to all kinds of travellers. PS. I'm already planning my next trip with them."
"My siblings and I went to Nepal without the intention of hiring a guide, and we were put off by all the high-pressure salespeople in Thamel. We'd decided to hike the Langtang trek and it seemed simple enough to do on our own.
Rustic Himalayan was set up near our hostel and we went over to ask about weather conditions. Rajat the first person to talk to us without being pushy. He discussed how a guide could be helpful, and would appreciate our business, but probably wasn't necessary for what we were planning.
In the end, we decided to hire a guide through Rustic and I'm really glad we did. Rajat made all the arrangements with very-short notice as we wanted to leave ASAP, and having a guide really was helpful when it came to public transportation. The guide was also able to talk to other guides and teahouse owners so we had a heads up when certain teahouses were shut down, areas were especially snowy, etc.
Rajat was also mindful of the experience we wanted to have and found a guide who fit well with the three of us. We met some other trekkers who didn't have a good experience, but by the end of the 14-day trek, we'd all become close friends and we went to visit the guide and his family back in KTM. While we could have definitely done it on our own, I'm really glad we wound up hiring a guide and grateful that we met Rajat and worked with Rustic Himalayan."
"These guys are amazing! Rajat was able to organize a last minute mountain bike trip for me in the Annapurnas, he set up and organized everything which was so nice of him since he was leaving on a 21-day trek of his own. My mountain bike trip in the Annapurnas was the highlight of my trip to Nepal and I'm so thankful for everything these guys did for me and to my amazing guide Suraj too! Thanks again for everything!"
"What wonderful trip to Mardi Himal. As a solo female traveler I was delighted to find a female trekking guide. Sonam was a great. Always fun, friendly, cheerful and making sure I had everything that I needed. She was like a friend as well as a guide throughout the entire journey and I would recommend her to anybody wishing to trek in Nepal."
