Peaceful Trekking with stunning views

Just go with flow. Trekking together with Ram (Owner of Mountain Eco Treks) you will leave Nepal as a friend. It is not only safe it's furthermore fun, full of joy and an authentic Nepal experience. Hiking side by side along some of the remotest path towards or in Himalaya region can literally bringing you back to peace and it's ceasing of your mind when you enjoying an spectacular view at 4800m or even higher altitude, sharing local Dhal Bat (don't dare to taste the real nepaliversion) incl. an Everest Beer and have some nice conversation about the past and the very present is an experience what I enjoying since more then 5 years now bc. of Ram. His more then 13 years lasting guiding experience will lead you to many more better places even of the beaten tracks due his many connections he has with almost everyone in that area plus he with his company takes care of his country thought sponsoring an orphanage in Kathmandu too.

Amazing guide to EBC on a 10 day Trek

31st October, 2017

In October 2017 we trekked to EBC with Ram as our guide. We met Ram the day before our trek, where he gave us all the information we required before we left for our Lukla flight at 5am the next morning. Ram ensured as a tour group we were organised to ensure we made the first flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Attention to detail was paramount with Ram from the beginning, even advising us to sit on the Left side of the plane for the best views as we fly towards Lukla.

Once we landed in Lukla we took breakfast and as a group began to get to know each other, as for the next 10 days we became a team.
Ram consistently monitored our health throughout the trek to ensure we had the best experience along the journey, from testing spO2 levels to our diet and sleep, this assisted us all having a great trek. The continuous monitoring of us ensured symptoms of Altitude Sickness were dealt with swiftly and appropriately.
We could not have been any happier with Ram and his skills, we look forward to returning to Kathmandu to trek again with Ram in 2020 where we will complete a longer trek. Ram is amazing and highly regarded and anyone that treks with Ram will have an amazing and safe trek!!
Well done and thank you Ram!
