      Manaslu Circuit with Himalayan Dreamteam
      Great experience. This was the second trekking I did with Himalayan Dreamteam. Everything was perfectly arranged, from the pickup at KTM airport, the stay in Kathmandu and off course the trekking itself. Indira and Sameer did everything to get the most out of our trip. The guide we had was very experienced and found the nicest tea houses for overnight stay during the trek. Manaslu Circuit is getting more and more trekkers each year, but still it's very authentic and I think this will stay like this at least the next 5 years. I will definitely come back to Nepal and book with them again.

      Great trip in Nepal
      Just back from a roundtrip in Nepal: from Kathmandu to Chitwan, over Bandipur to Pokhara - Annapurna trekking - back to Kathmandu. From arrival to departure all was so well organised: drivers, guides, sherpa's all friendly/experienced. Accomodation all very ok. Indira was always there to give advice and book additional things (rafting for example) upon request. Would surely contact them again for a next trip!

    We chose Nepal as honeymoon destination because we wanted to enjoy the magnificent himalaya. We got a trip with the perfect variance between spending time in nature, enjoying the vibrant cities and having some space to relax. Thanks to Indira and her team we were taken care of from the moment that we landed until after we were back home. All our needs were seen and immediately acted upon. Our trekking guide and porter were so very kind and helpful, according to us we had the very best if we compared with the people around us. Himalaya dreamteam is defintely worth it!

    We travelled to Nepal from 14/11 to 28/11/19. The trip was organized by Rik Van Belle, MyHimalaya (Ghent, Belgium) in corporation with HimalayanDreamTeam Kathmandu (Mrs Indira Kathiwoda)

    From the start (a warm welcome and diner), to the end of the trip we felt a personal attention and every day Indira stood in touch with us, and was ready to adapt our tour to all our wishes.
    We also met very kind guides, drivers and porter, who friendly wishes to show their country and looked after us very well.
    Everything was perfectly arranged: the pick-ups at the hotels, the city walks, the trekking, the flights and transport. We stayed in beautiful hotels and charming guesthouses and lodges and everyone was very friendly.
    We definitively recommend this organization for a visit to Nepal!

    Thanks a lot, Indira and her team, and Rik!

    Looking for a perfect organised trekking in Nepal? Don't hesitate and rely on the dream team of Indira. Transport, accomodation, guides, porters, everything is looked after for very carefully.
    With a group of 14, we hiked over the thousands of steps all the way up to Annapurna base camp. Assisted by excellent guides and porters! The jump in the hot springs on our way down was a pampering moment after the never ending ups and downs of the Annapurna trail.
    Himalaya Dream team, value for money!

    We travelled for two weeks in Nepal with Hymalayan Dream Team. They made a personal offer, after we mailed our preferences.
    We were very dilighted with their proposal, both for the journey as for the costs. We asked for a 5 day hiking tour off the beaten path in Pokara, combined with Chitwan and sightseeing at Katmandu.

    We really were very happy with the hiking tour around Mohare Hill. We stayed at cosy homestays and were able to interact with the locals. The first 4 days we didn't even see any other tourists at all. Also our guide and porter were very good and fun to spend some days with. We never got bored. Both the guides and touring agency listened very good to our requests and made this trip unforgettable.

    All pick upps and transport were on time and with a smile.

    Don't doubt about going to Nepal, it is a wonderfull and friendly land with lots of variety. And if you choose Hymalayan Dream Team to organise it for you, you get the best of it.

    Himalayan Dream Team organised a perfect trekking to Upper Mustang for us. Super friendly staff, and a super committed crew. They were so helpful! Helping us with everything - from arranging our meals and drinks to helping us cross steep slopes and wild rivers. As our head porter said: "We are family now", and that's exactly how it felt. A big heartfelt thanks to Indira, Om, Thakur and the rest of the crew.

    We had a great time. Everything was very well organized. Indira & Samir are very nice and very helpful as is their team. No request or question is too much for them. Even when sometimes things seems to go bad and are out of there hands they are still ready to help u find solutions/alternatives. Overall great stays except Kathmandu, stay there was ok no more no less. They use responsible drivers and guides with knowledge.

    Third time travelled with HDT. This time Langtang, Goisakund and Helambu. Great time, excellent trip and well organized. We had great fun with our guide Jangbu and porter Sonam. They have given us a great holiday in beautiful Nepal again. Indira and her staff in Kathmandu are incredible reliable. Don't search further, let them organise your unforgettable trip in the Himalaya!
