I did the EBC trek with Island Peak. From Kathmandu Protrek took complete care of us. They have amazing, knowledgeable guides and support team. Would recommend them to anyone looking to do a trek or peak in Nepal!

I highly recommend Protrek Adventure agency

Fantastic team and extremely knowledgeable guides
Tracey Jones United States

This was the best adventure I’ve ever been on in Nepal. With Protrek Adventure, I did the Ama Dablam Climb in the Himalayan Mountains. When it came to planning my trip, they were the best teammates I could have asked for. The successful ascent was made possible thanks to my guide Phurba Sherpa, who also assisted with my training by leading me through each campsite.

It would have been impossible without Sandeep’s knowledge and expertise, which allowed me to go into the mountains with complete confidence. I also want to thank Dawa, Manoj, and Viji for their help before I landed in Kathmandu. You guys are amazing! See you on the next one!

Great level of service and professionalism in guiding
Marco Regolizzo Italy

After speaking with numerous tour operators in Nepal, I decided on Protrek Adventure for my Ama Dablam expedition. This trip with Protrek has been an absolute joy, and I can’t say enough good things about them. Everything was so well planned and organized from beginning to end.

Multiple emails were exchanged with Dawa in the office, and every one of my inquiries was thoroughly answered. Following the email conversations, there were more interactions on a call in which their team assisted me in sorting out and organizing all of my climbing gear.

Because Ama Dablam is a notoriously difficult and technical peak, it was critical that I double-check all of my gear before landing in Kathmandu. Pre-expedition training and preparation were made much easier for me by the Protrek team. Dawa and Viji, thank you so much for your help.

We did a lot of training at base camp, which helped us a lot for the climbing that was to come. It would not have been possible without Dorjee Sherpa, our guide, and Suren Rai, our porter. Special thanks to Sandeep for guiding us through all of the logistics and providing us with the best experience ever.

I would strongly recommend Protrek Adventure to anyone interested in peak climbing in Nepal. Their level of service, professionalism, and attention to detail made this trip the best it could have been.

Climbing Ama Dablam with the best team!!
Adriana Chavez United States

The experience of climbing Ama Dablam in Nepal with Protrek Adventure was fantastic! All of our Sherpa guides were wonderful, and they went above and beyond to help us reach our goals. (All of the members reached the summit!). It was our expedition leader’s 12th summit on Ama Dablam, and I had absolute confidence in his abilities.

Protrek Adventure’s hospitality is what sets them apart from other tour operators. The people working on the ground in Kathmandu were outstanding in their professionalism and friendliness. Everything was done to ensure that our stay was enjoyable and that the amenities met high standards. Whenever we had a question, they were there to answer it promptly and patiently.

The booking process went smoothly. Prior to the trip, each of us had a one-on-one phone conversation in which we learned about the training, gear, and other aspects of the trip. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to ask personal questions regarding the trip.

During the course of the hike, we were provided with the most helpful and professional support staff that anyone could ask for. The porters and guides took excellent care of us and were extremely knowledgeable about the terrain. The best food one could expect at such high altitudes made a big difference on this trip.

Overall, I had a fantastic time on the trip, and I would absolutely recommend going with Protrek Adventure!!

Great experience with Protrek!
Lucas Dal Bo Brazil

I had a great experience in the everest base camp trekking with Protrek. The trails are gorgeous, and Protrek’s staff (management, guides and porter) was professional and cheerful, offering valuable advice from planning to returning home.

Having participated in trekkings with other companies in Argentina (Aconcágua) and Equador (Cotopaxi), I totally recommend Protrek!

Großes Lob!!

Mein Projekt war der EBC-Trek mit anschliessender Besteigung des Island Peaks.

Ich habe mich bewusst für einen lokalen Anbieter entschieden, da so oder so klar war, dass die eigentliche Arbeit von Locals umgesetzt werden würde- da erschien es mir nicht sinnvoll, einer westlichen Agentur noch eine „Vermittlungsgebühr“ zu zahlen.

Das ist dann auch der erste Punkt: Preise!

PTA erscheint im Vergleich zu anderen sehr günstig- das freut natürlich den Geldbeutel. Merkt man das negativ? Auf keinen Fall!!

Das Personal/ der Kontakt:

Alle generellen Anfragen wurden bei Instagram schnell und freundlich und umfassend beantwortet. Nachdem es dann konkreter wurde, gab es dazu noch Mailverkehr.
Ca. 10 Tage vor Start der Reise gab es ein langes Telefonat, in dem Platz für alle Fragen war, in dem es viele, gute Hinweise gab und in dem die Packliste noch mal durchgesprochen wurde- in aller Ruhe.

Vor Ort wird man am Flughafen abgeholt und freundlich begrüßt- und dann ins Hôtel gebracht.
Wir hatten etwas Trouble mit dem domestischen Transfer- auch hier hat man sich sofort gekümmert!

Ab Lukla dann waren wir in den zuverlässigen und freundlichen Händen von Karma Sherpa und unserem Porter Laxman Rai. Wir wurden sehr sehr zuvorkommend behandelt, aufmerksam, freundlich und bemüht. Alle gesundheitlichen Punkte wurden regelmäßig abgefragt und kontrolliert. Nachdem wir klar gemacht hatten, dass wir „nicht solche Klienten“ sind, entwickelte sich sogar ein wirklich freundschaftlicher, humoriger Umgang, geprägt von echtem, zwischenmenschlichen Interesse.

Zwischenruf:
Ohne die Leistung der Helfer vor Ort, wären wir „Westler“ gar nicht in der Lage, diese Dinge so zu erleben, wie wir es können…! Vielleicht kommt man noch ohne einen Guide aus, wenn man sich beim 2., 3. oder 4. Besuch dann gut auskennt, aber ohne die Porter, die mühelos das 3-4fache des eigenen Gepäcks tragen und dabei immer noch freundlich und höflich sind- und deutlich schneller als man selber- müsste man sich schon sehr sehr einschränken. Aber auch unser Sherpa/Guide hat uns immer wieder Gewicht abgenommen, bei zig Handgriffen geholfen und uns das Gefühl gegeben, gut aufgehoben zu sein.

Finanzielles:
Damit man sieht, dass es eben keine Scheinfirma ist, wo man dann am Flughafen ankommt, nachdem man gezahlt hat & plötzlich alleine in Kathmandu steht, wird hier nur eine Anzahlung geleistet. Der Rest wird nach Anreise gezahlt.

Unterbringung:
Natürlich ist dies kein Luxusurlaub, das sollte jedem klar sein! Dennoch werden die Lodges sehr bewusst ausgesucht, dort wo es möglich ist, wird eine höhere Zimmerkategorie gewählt. Ich war zu jedem Zeitpunkt zufrieden! Das Essen in den Lodges war super, schmackhaft, nahrhaft und immer genug!

Organisation des Treks:
Der gesamte Ablauf ist durchdacht organisiert. Die Höhen-Sprünge sind bewusst gestaltet, es gibt weitere „Hikes“ an den „Ruhetagen“ zur Akklimatisierung, nach denen dann jeweils „tief“ geschlafen wird. Obwohl man sich als Gruppe bewegt, gab es immer die Möglichkeit, sein eigenes Tempo zu wählen, egal ob schneller oder langsamer. Außerdem wurde zu jedem Zeitpunkt respektiert, wenn man einfach eine Weile „für sich selber“ in Bewegung war, mit seinen Gedanken alleine. Die täglichen Strecken sind absolut darstellbar – jeden Abend gut es ein kurzes Briefing für den nächsten Tag. Die Strecken auf dem Abstieg sind etwas länger, jedoch bewegt man sich hier ja überwiegend „bergab“ und ist bereits akklimatisiert und auch gewöhnt, viel zu laufen.

Organisation des Bergsteigens:
Ordentliches, gut organisiertes Basislager, bequeme Umsetzung der Schlafmöglichkeit! Auch hier vollständige und leckere Verpflegung. Der zugebuchte Climbing Sherpa war sehr erfahren, entspannt und dennoch umsichtig. Speziell im Abstieg, sehr erschöpft und etwas angeschlagen, war Phurba Sherpa „überall“, sehr nah an der Person und sehr vorausschauend.

Fazit:
Ich würde jederzeit wieder mit Protrek Adventure auf Tour gehen.

Well done Protrek!
Matthew Meadows United Kingdom

After speaking to nearly 10 tour operators, both in the UK and Nepal, I settled on Protrek Adventure for my Everest Base Camp and Island Peak climb in April 2022, and did not regret it at all. The first communications I made with them were answered both promptly, and with all the information I expected and this gave me a feeling I was dealing with a professional and as importantly, a company that cares about my experience too. As this was my first trip to Himalayas, and my first 6000m plus mountain, I had many questions, but all were answered concisely by Dawa at the end of the email.

Then from landing in KTM, to leaving 20 days later the trip was faultless, and the team employed by ProTrek were skilled, experienced and always had the clients interests at heart.

We had trouble with the Lukla flight, and the field director made a special trip to help us arrange/negotiate a helicopter – just one example of the level of customer service shown by ProTrek.

So, to Sandeep the Field Director, Dawa in the office, Viji, Karma the guide, and Laxman our porter – a huge thank you for your level of service, professionalism and for making this the perfect trip.

Wonderful and memorable moments
Aleksandra Jarvi Poland

Protrek Adventure was the company for my trekking trip in Nepal: Everest Base Camp trek via Gokyo. From the beginning responses to emails were fast and very satisfatory, done by Mr. Dawa Sherpa. Since arrival to Nepal till the time of leaving, the company (Sandeep and Viji) is taking a great care of the customer!

The entire trip was very well planned. The lodges on the trek were very nice with all needed services. Our stuff: guide Sandeep Rai and Karma Sherpa were extremely professional. It was really a pleasure to spent that time together with them. They were just there for us, ready to help when needed, sharing the knowledge about mountains/Himalayas/summits and what is the most important they always made sure that we follow the rules of safe trek and that our health/well being is super precious. Huge respect for that!

Thank you so much for this oportunity to #makedreamscometrue and to be a part of this wonderful journey in Himalayas!

It goes to everyone: Mr. Dawa Sherpa, Viji, Sandeep, Karma Sherpa and porters (wonderful local people,worked very hard and were super nice-huge thanks and respect!) for all wonderful and memorable moments which will stay with me forever!

I highly recommend reaching out to this company if you are planning a trip to Nepal. I am sure I will when I plan my next visit in Nepal.
