"What can we tell you about Kailash Himalaya Trek ? They are perfect and we like them.
Since 1985, we asked Mr. Santa Subba, director of Kailash Himalaya Trek Agency, to organise treks tailor made for us (a small family of three persons). On our first visit to Nepal, around 1980, we immediately became enthusiastic of Kathmandu Valley. Therefore, we wanted to increase our knowledge of the different sides of the Nepalese culture by visiting places untouched by the development of tourism. Mr. Santa Subba, to our great satisfaction, advised us treks in areas newly opened, giving us a lot of information on the places to be visited and the ethnic groups which inhabited those regions.
We did the following treks :
- 1985 Jomsom-Pokhara
- 1986 Tumlingtar-Hile
- 1994 Mustang
- 1997 Kailash and Mansarovar (via Nepal’s Simikot)
- 2002 Around Manaslu
- 2003 Upper Arun Valley
- 2003 Small trek around Phaplu
Our plan for 2004 : Mustang to see the Buddhist Festival
All our treks have been extremely well organised by Mr. Santa Subba and we always could count on him for rescue when necessary. He is surrounded by a very nice staff, very helpful before and during the treks.
Since 1994, we trekked with Mr. Kitap Tamang as our sirdar. In his job, he is a very efficient professional. He has great authority with all his people and solves the problems when they occur. He remains flexible enough to adjust to specific clients’ needs and his help has been precious in a lot of situations.
The relationship between Kitap and us has become very rapidly friendly. It is a pleasure to discuss with him all along the trail and he very often acts as a translator giving us the opportunity to discuss with the population. His understanding of our specific focus of interest has helped us to increase our knowledge of the Nepalese culture and contributed to make a success of our treks.
