What our clients Say?

Caroline and Dan Canada

Excellent and very attentive.

September 18, 2011

Mountain Hawk treks organized a great trek for my family and I during the month of August 2011. The team of porters and our guide were excellent and very attentive. We had beautiful weather and plenty of wildlife. All in all was everything we wanted. Will be coming back for sure!

Caroline + Dan from Canada

My father, sister and I spent 21 days with Ram, Raju and badri on the Annapurna circuit. I couldn’t have imagined a better group of guides/ porters to spend time with. They were always extremely professional and made the trek a great experience altogether.

Annapurna Circuit in May

hi mahesh and the rest of the trekking team

it was great while we were there together on the mountains etc. All in the same boat and as they say that sinking feeling but we were adamant and were keen on not letting the ship drown and carried on and persevered and eventually we saw light at the end of the tunnel – literally – we reached muktinath -a very holy place for buddhists and hindus alike !!!

dipak did do a wonderful job and same for prem and his team – so a big asante sana

so hip hip hurray to us all for adding another chapter in our lives !! a milestone by any standards

mahesh it was apity we lost ‘mzee’ earlier on but we inherited another mzee …. you were sorely missed for your chili sauces etc and of course as been our senior member and the wisdom thats comes with it – but we all have to heed the call from above and do what is the right thing for our health and safety !!

so hope all are ok and getting down to business of our daily routines and work loads and asking hte same question -should i be sitting at the desk and do what i do or take time out and do something more adventurous and meaningful ?

its all in our hands

all the best
from the most dangerous aadmi
