Everest Base Camp - October 2019
Everest Base Camp - October 2019

TRIP OF A LIFE TIME! AN EXPERIENCE I WILL NEVER FORGET!! Prem and his team made the expedition a magnificently memorable experience. The views were amazing and feeling of achieving daily goals to reach the Everest Base Camp under Prem’s leadership was incredible. Prem’s invaluable experience and knowledge of the mountains, his confidence, competence and considerate attention to everyone’s specific needs helped us successfully reach the Everest Base Camp. He provided guidance on what we should wear, what to eat (or not to eat in my case as I like being adventurous!), to keep hydrated and he set the pace for trekking each day – kept on reminding us it is our own race! He made sure we were medically and physically fit each day for the trek. Thank you to Prem and his team for making my first Everest Base Camp trek an incredibly memorable experience. I have no hesitation in recommending Mountain Hawk Trekking for a splendid experience – the best in class!!

Gokyo Ri, Cho La pass, & Island Peak ! Prem - Weather god, protector of stomachs, and guide extraordinaire! I cannot speak highly enough of Prem and Mountain Hawk trekking. Prem led us on an amazing 22 trek through Gokyo Ri, Cho La Pass and the summit of Island Peak. It was the adventure of a lifetime and Prem made sure it was perfect. He had everything organised and he quickly adapted plans and arrangements when things needed to change. He managed our acclimatisation well, taking us up slowly and monitoring our O2 each day. He also kept us away from dodgy foods and no one got sick. While others were flown back down the valley, we continued. He also has a great sense of humour and was really part of our team. And the porters are fantastic! Those tough guys carried all of our stuff, helped us over Cho La Pass and were always smiling. The Island Peak summit was as amazing as the climb was hard. Without Prem's acclimatisation and preparation we wouldn't have made it. In years to come I will bring my children to see the beauty Nepalese mountains and I will definitely go with Prem. Thanks for an amazing experience!

Upper Mustang Trek
Upper Mustang Trek

My wife and I went to Upper Mustang in October of 2016 with Prem Pandit from Mountain Hawk Treks. I can only say that it was the most remarkable trip we've ever been on. Mustang is vast, stark, raw, remote, and to date, unspoiled.  

The landscape is most reminiscent of the old American West--just bigger, and with the Himalayas as the backdrop, and more spectacular. It is high desert with altitudes ranging from 2800 to 4000 meters (9000 to 13,500 ft).  Daytime temperatures were a comfortable 15C (60F), nighttime approaching 0C (32F).

The culture is Tibetan, and the entire area is dotted with Buddhist monasteries, stupas and chortens. Beautiful works of religious art are found within the monasteries (which are dark inside: a flashlight is a necessity) and the chortens.    The villages themselves are small, with people living traditional Tibetan, Buddhist lives.  You feel that you are looking back in time.   I suspect this will begin to change as adventure tourism continues to grow.
Our guide Prem was indispensable. He not only planned our trek with us in mind (we are in our sixties), but he is very flexible and made wonderfully thought-out changes to our plans when circumstances dictated. Our impromptu trek to Muktinath comes to mind as one of the highlights, and it was added because we needed an extra day in Lo Manthang which changed the original itinerary.
Prem is passionate about what he does. He is very well informed about the wildlife, the cultural and the religious aspects of this region.  He loves trekking and it shows.  His thoughtfulness and insight made sure we had a successful trip.  I recommend him highly to anyone who wants a real adventure. Prem is honest, considerate, and highly respected in the villages and among his peers. He will not let you down. This was our second trek with Mountain Hawk, and we'd go again with Prem.

Only 2 members of our team of 18 had been to Nepal before and both times with Prem and his team at Mountain Hawk (MH). The fact that we chose  MH again is a testament to their excellent organisation and ability to manage such a large group. There was a lot of correspondence before the trip which was very efficiently handled by Prem and his guidance in preparing us for the expedition was invaluable.  As you can imagine, looking after each one of a group of 18 with diverse needs is not easy but throughout the trip, the entire crew was superb and attended to all our needs with patience and a smile.  There were some tricky moments as weather conditions were testing but their encouragement and support got us through.  Above all, we all had a lot of fun and laughter with them as we felt they were like a family to us.  Thank you MH from all our hearts and look forward to more trips with you.

Cho La high pass from EBC to Goyko third time in 2016.
Cho La high pass from EBC to Goyko third time in 2016.

We first used Mountain Hawk Trekking in 2010 when we completed a short 8 day Annapurna circuit and the Everest Base Camp Trek - see previous testimonial below.

We came back to Nepal in January 2014 and once again relied on Prem and his team at Mountain Hawk Trekking. This time Prem looked after us on two treks: Kanjing Gompa and Goyko - Goyko Ri.

Once again, his level of planning, care and attention was simply outstanding. Both treks were simply awesome. Given that it was winter with freezing temperatures overnight, Prem made sure we had additional blankets to ensure that we were warm and comfortable at night. There were days when the temperatures fell to well below freezing whilst we were trekking and to ensure we remained warm and well looked after, Prem made sure the porter trekked with us so that if needed we could raid our packs for additional supplies.

The scenery on the way to Goyko was quite simply majestic and upon reflection I believe it was a better trek than Everest Base camp. The panorama from the top of Goyko Ri is breathtaking with 360 degree views overlooking the Ngozumpa Glacier which is the longest glacier in the Himalayas.

We are planning to return for a third time in 2016 and if weather permits undertake Cho La high pass from EBC to Goyko and thus complete a loop. If you are planning to trek in Nepal, do yourself a really, really huge favour and use Mountain Hawk Trekking; we highly recommend them.
