“The team at Green Valley were great from start to finish. Raj one of the owners provided lots of information before we got there and was very attentive to any requests or questions we had.
Ram was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgable, friendly and professional. However he loved to joke around and was very entertaining. Ram especially loved playing UNO with us which was a bonus - he beat us many times. We met a lot of other guides along the way but we definitely liked Ram the best. During the harder parts of the trek he was a very calm teacher and was very attentive in ensuring that we were okay. Ram always got us the best rooms in the tea houses we stayed at and was very inclusive with the locals which was a great and authentic experience. He also taught us a lot of Nepalese - and was patient with our terrible interpretation of the language.
Ras was our porter for the Manaslu trek and as one of the harder treks out there, he was an absolute hero. Many of the days he even beat us to the tea houses which was incredibly impressive. Like Ram he had a very gentle and hilarious personality. He made us laugh constantly even when all of us were tired. He was extremely helpful and attentive - a true Nepalese gentleman. He also beat us at UNO at his first game.
We could not recommend Ram and Ras more highly and we were very lucky to share the trip with them. They became more like friends rather than guide and porter. Ask for them at the awesome Green Valley.”
“It was all okey with Green Valley! Good comunication, any problem at the payment and also was included a big jacket, very necessary at the top of Poon Hill!
They were always friendly and they keep in contact also after the trekking, taking us to the airport. Very recomenable!”
“Green Valley organized an awesome trip for me to do the Three High Passes trek in Everest region. Unfortunately, I had to come down early due to altitude sickness, but Green Valley was with me every step of the way. The owner Raj met me at the hospital and helped smooth over things so that I could get discharged as soon as possible. I had no intention of spending the night in the hospital while on holiday. He even picked up my medical records for me later in the week since I had moved on to Pokhara. Highly recommended trek as well as Green Valley and Raj!”
“Raj informed us very well of what to expect during our trek. We had no unpleasant surprises ( except for frozen toilets).”
“Excellent service from the Owner Rajendra Lamichhane -Raj , Guide Jami and porter Pasang. Raj replied my questions very fast and his understanding is brilliant.
will use them again and no hesitation to recommend Raj and his team!!”
“Everything is well arrange. Good work.”
“The trek was beautiful. Would not have made it without the guide from Green Valley Nepal.”
“Green Valley are real professionals. Starting with Raj, who was so kind to meet all my conditions for duration and other aspects of the tre. Next - the guide - Jambu, who was so adaptive to my needs and quite knowledgeable. The accomodation was OK, the food was OK, transfers were OK, the farewell dinner with Raj was OK, the weather was perfect. And not on the last place - I have agreed a quite reasonable price for this trek. I am satisfied with all. I can recommend it to everybody - the trip and the Green Valley team.”
“Under the guidance of Raj (Rajendra Lamichhane) we were outfitted with 3 small duffel bags plus sleeping bags and down jackets for the duration of our trek. Raj also organised the hotel and stay (Kathmandu ECO in Thamel. and the necessary pre-trip communications. The trip first had to be changed from 4 participants to only 3. That left myself (71y of age) my son Colin (32 y of age) and Nancy (36y of age). Colin and I already did the Annapurna Round back in 2014. Due to personal health problems, the trek was modified to exclude the Gokyo Loop, which was then organised by our guide, Uttarman to spread the EBC Round now out in such a way to use up the extra 4 days that were originally earmarked for the Gokyo Loop. The re-routing of the trek was done very sensibly and safely. The professional manner of the Green Valley Nepal Treks organisation evidenced by dealing with Raj, the guide Uttarman and the two porters suggests that Green Valley has been in business successfully for I believe now 15 years in a manner of knowledge and trust. All services promised had been adhered to including the Kathmandy Lukla Kathmandy inland flights and all airport pickups and drop offs as well as three daily meals for 15 days of trekking. Many thanks to Raj and Uttar as well as the porters and the Hotel Kathmandu ECO personnel for a job very well done.”
“What an unexpectedly high level of service this was, and that while I was mainly looking for a very competitive price. Raj and his team have you covered from the moment you arrive in Kathmandu until the moment you leave the country (they literally arranged my taxi to the airport, even two weeks after my trek had ended).
The communication is top notch, my planning was very last minute (i.e. 5 days in advance from abroad) but I always got very quick replies with honest and clear answers to my questions.
Raj liberally took the time to help me out with final preparations and supplies, the one day I had in Kathmandu before leaving to Lukla, to ensure an excellent trip.
These guys come highly recommended and deserve all the praise.”
“Would highly recommend the Owner Rajendra Lamichhane ( Raj) and Green Valley Treks for anyone considering booking a trek in Nepal. Just got back from their 14 day trek to EBC and Gokyo lakes. From the outset they were quick to answer any questions I had, they arranged transfer to and from the airport and even took us out for a meal at the end of it! The trip itself was great - very reasonably priced, good, knowledgeable and friendly guide who was happy to adapt the trip to meet our needs. Have travelled extensively around the world and know there's always uncertainty when booking with a local tour operator, but rest assured, these guys are great and would not hesitate to book another trip with them!”
“My boyfriend and I booked the 17 day 3 high passes and Everest Base Camp Trek with Green Valley Tours. I booked with Green Valley as the price was very good but also the owner Raj, was excellent at getting back to me to answer any questions I had before making the booking. This level of service continued in the run up to our arrival in Nepal and it was great to know that Raj was at the end of an email or whatsapp message for any questions we had.
As part of the trek Green Valley also picked us up from the airport in Kathmandu and took us to our hostel. This is a vital service as Kathmandu airport is crazy busy.
We had a few days in Thamel before our trek and Raj was always on hand to help, answer questions and give us recommendations for additional equipment to buy and how much it should cost.
The trek itself was breath taking (and HARD). The porters were absolutely brilliant and great fun to play cards with in the evening. Our guide did a good job and had a good sense of humour. Unfortunately though after 9 days I got very sick and our trek was cut short but I did manage to trek the highest pass and made it to EBC.
(TRAVELLER TIP: as soon as you start to feel unwell be sure to tell your guide you need a rest day. I didn’t do this and just kept pushing myself each day and in the end made myself very ill.)
If like me you do fall ill then the aftercare I received from Green Valley and Raj was outstanding. Raj was already at the hospital when I arrived to make sure I was okay and he visited everyday. When I was due to leave hospital he came to pick me and my boyfriend up and take us to our hotel.
Once I had recovered, as our trek had been cut short, he also helped to arrange the bus so we could visit another part of Nepal. On return to Kathmandu, Raj had followed up at the hospital for me and collected all the paperwork. If all that wasn’t enough, he also arranged an evening meal with the rest of the trekking group when they returned from the trek so we could catch up with them and say our farewells…..AND took us back to the airport when it was time to leave.
The care and consideration shown by Raj and Green Valley really was more than I could have asked for, Raj did a brilliant job when was I ill and he continued the service until I left Nepal . I would happily use them again for any treks or tour in Nepal and can’t thank Raj enough for the amazing after he provided.”
“Very professional and competent
From the first e-mail contact with Rajendra Lamichhane (Raj) to the last dinner absolutely professional and reliable. Very sympathetic agency with high service. All questions were answered promptly and competently. Excellent organization from pick-up from airport via tea house reservation to drive back to airport. I felt right from the beginning in good hands. Very nice guide Ramesh Gorkhali, he was very good prepared and he guided me always with good mood, but also with great sense of responsibility. He also tried to learn me Nepali-language :-) Every day feedback and conversation on the next trekking day of the Annapurna round. Very, very good value for money!!! Absolutely recommendable!”

“The guys at Green Valley Nepal Treks were great and we felt looked after every step of the way. I'd definitely recommend them, everything was very well organized so we didn't have to worry about anything from accommodation to food, transport etc.They provided jackets and sleeping bags which you'll need in Ghorepani as it's pretty cold (we had a porter also which was very helpful - it doesn't cost much and you'll be happy to have him when you go up the stairs towards Uleri :) )”
“Raj from Green Valley looked after everything from accomodation, internal flights and sending a driver to collect/drop me off at the airport for each flight and even brought me out for dinner at the end! He was always quick at responding to any queries I had before the trip began and was more then happy to accomodate me with tailoring the trip to suit my needs.
Our guide (Bhim) was great & a true gent, always making sure everyone had what they needed and were ok throughout the trek.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience and would highly recommend Green Valley as a company to go with! I'll be using them for my next trek in Nepal!”
“We will definitely be recommending Green Valley and Operator Rajendra Lamichhane “ Raj” to anyone we know who is hoping to do some trekking in Nepal . Our guide was amazing! Having seen other tours on the mountain, we don't think anyone else gave as much information and entertainment throughout our whole trek! We both got altitude sickness, and our guide looked after us, so we were very pleased with his service - very knowledgeable and experienced guide. Our Porter was great too, and we hope he meets his ambition of becoming a guide one day as he is excellent on the mountain, even showing us a few things and providing some service.”
“Great trek thanks to the help and planning of Raj! All aspects were taken care of - from airport pick up to briefing meeting as well as transport, our fantastic guide Bhim and porters (Santos 1 & 2), providing equipment and navigating unforeseen problems. We had a few specific issues - severe allergies, motion sickness - and Raj ensured all those aspects were taken care of. We felt very safe and well taken care of. Perfect company to do a lengthy trek with - accommodations and meals all managed very well. I'd do a trek again with them anytime!”
“Everything was good. Thank you for this perfect service! If I do another trekking I'll do it again with this company!”
“Hard to beat - everything was really perfect. Will be using them again next year.”
“Not a very good experience. No one was at the airport to meet me at the agreed upon time. The owner finally arrived approximately 45 minutes late after I had someone at the airport contact the company. This was very much a hurry up and wait operation. On about half the days we were made to get up at 4:30 AM for what we were told would be breakfast at 5AM. We would then sit around an unheated dining hall until breakfast finally arrived at 6AM. We were then encouraged to maintain a forced march pace and would be done with hiking for the day by lunchtime. When I stopped to take pictures the guide would sigh in annoyance..If you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere do not use this outfit, the experience here was similar to army boot camp. The rest of the days would be spent sitting around teahouses with nothing to do. The pace was so quick that we ended up having a total of 4 days downtime at Namche. We were made to do Gokyo to Thame in one day ( going counterclockwise). Other outfits do this section in 2-3 days.The food was often awful to the degree where I got sick on three separate occasions, as did others in the group.Your food options are limited. While there are good choices on the menus if you order something other than vegetarian you would be told "not available". Most of the teahouses were filthy and run down, In one such teahouse the bathroom floors( made of plywood) were totally saturated with urine. I would be using the bathroom on the second floor while have urine dripping on me from the third floor.”
“Our guide was wonderful! Mingmar knew so much history and always answered any questions. Our group were random strangers but we all quickly became friends. This adventure is going to be difficult to top. Food was delicious and accommodations were better than expected for such a remote region. I forgot something of value at a previous stop. Our guide called the tea house and learned they had found the item. Without asking or suggesting the tea house owner arranged for the item to be brought to where we were staying and the person who made the 6 hour trek hand delivered it and wouldn't take any sort of reward or gratitude beyond a grateful hug.”
“I highly recommend GV Nepal Treks! If you have preference of tea houses or want to customize your treks, do let them know and they can make arrangements for you.”
“Raj (owner of Green Valey) has just organized for me the best trip and my guide Tshering was very professional and friendly.
I definitely recommend organising your trip with them.”
“Green Valley is one of the most honest and helpful companies around. Their prices are competitive and their guides/porters are all awesome guys. They really went out of the way to help accommodate every member of our group while on the trek. I only made one of the passes and EBC before having to come down due to altitude sickness, but Green Valley was with me every step of the way. Raj met me at the hospital and helped smooth things over do that I could get out as soon as possible. He even picked up my paperwork afterward and arranged a driver for me when I decided to skip out on Nepal early for the warm (and lazy) beaches of Bali. Do yourself a favor and book with these guys. They definitely know what they are doing.”
“I am very happy to have organised the Manaslu Circuit Trek through Green Valley. The trek was beautiful, and every part of it well organised. Communication from the company was excellent before and after the trek, and I never felt like I had worry about anything.”
“Green Valley offers an amazing experience; warm and hospitable service with knowledgeable guides. They were very quick to answer and address any questions or concerns we had, and were very thorough in ensuring we had an enjoyable experience. I highly recommend trekking with this company and would definitely use their services again.”
“Green Valley Treks have given me not only one of the best trekking experiences of mylife but also gave me the chance to get to know lots of new great friends from allover the world. The moment I booked with Green Valley their Managing Director (Rajendra Lamichhane) was in constant contact with me to answer all my questions and to make sure that preparing for the trek was easier for me. When I arrived at Kathmandu he helped me himself to get all I needed and be prepared for the trek. The guide (Bhairas Tamang) had much experience in the trek itself add to that much medical knowledge especially about altitude sickness and how to treat it which helped us avoid it during the trek. Having good English have made communication qith him much easier but how friendly, sociable and understanding he was was what made him a great companion. I was offered exceptional service at every place we stayed in during the trek. Best of all mu goal was their aim and they helped me with all means possible to reach it. If you're intrested in visiting Nepal for an extraordinary trek, Green Valley Treks is your best choice.”
“I did the trekking and the experience was fantastic! I recommend it to everybody. Amazing views and a good chance to meet new people and share experiences. I was lucky to do it with Depak. Not only he was my trekking guide, he was also my buddy and we are now good friends. With him, now I know so much better the culture, geography and all the amazing things I may know about this fantastic country. I wish him the best. I am thinkkng on what will be my next destination...maybe Manasulu trekking with my friend guide Dipak Bhatta”
“Green Valley Nepal Trek company did a very good job on our trek for my brother and myself. We had a small hick up in the beginning but the owner Raj reacted immediately and fixed the situation and all was good. As for our guide Lax he was amazing and couldn't have asked for a better guide along the way. I highly recommend the company if you are going to Nepal and I easily rank them a 5*+ if I could.”
“I had a really good time doing the Poonhill Trek even though we did not get to see the sunrise from Poonhill. The weather was poor and we were not able to go up Poonhill in the morning, but there was still so much to see along the trek. Everyday had fantastic scenery and I got to meet a lot of great people along the way.”
“Well organised, attentive staff and guides which were very helpful and spoke quite good English. I would recommend Green Valley.”
“Raj and Bhaira's (our organizer & guide) really went out of there way to help us with a range of things I never would have expected on a trek. We were given lots of flexibility and I think you could pretty much create the trip you want and Green Valley will make it happen. I would recommend and use Green Valley again simply because of their knowledge, kind and helpful attitude, and ability to cater to your individual needs.”
“Its professional company with excellent Guide. we had fun with the staffs. They really looked after us. Perfectly organize!! We would recommend this company.”
“Fantastic Trip. Raj was very helpful from the beginning. He immediately emailed us when we booked the trip and gave us all the info we needed, answering all our questions. This made us feel confident we had booked with a Nepalese company that wasn't a scam.
Our guide Krishna was great, he knew the trek very well and paced us appropriately. He was very kind and helped one of our group members whenever she was having trouble. This lady also had a porter, Binud, who was very fun and pushed the pace for us lads well.
Overall it was a fantastic trip that we highly recommend doing. It is quite flexible in how far you go each day based on how much energy you have left. The views are awesome and the altitude was not too bad at all”
“Had amazing time in Annapurna. Perfect company specially one of the Owner Raj and my Guide Krishna. Will use them again for our next adventure.”
“Excellent. Raj, the owner of the company was very helpful and very friendly, everything went smoothly from when we arrived in Nepal to when we left - we were looked after very well. Very reasonably priced as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to trek in the Nepal Himalayas.”
“We had a wonderful time. Our guides and the rest of the crew were very helpful and took good care of us. I always felt that we were in great hands! definitely this company.”
“We had a great time at Poonhill. It was nice and easy booking. Very good service and a reasonable price. We will definitely use this company again.”
“Excellent and professional service. Raj, one of the Owner of the company and our Guide Krishna provide us best service possible. The trek to ABC was amazing , afterwards we did Chitwan safari which was nicely arranged as well. We Will use them again.”
“Had great time. Its beautiful trek and my organizer Rajendra Lamichhane ( Raj) is Excellent. Guide was fantastic who always took care of me and group. go with Raj/ Green Valley you would be more then Happy.”
“Our trip in Nepal could not have been any better! Raj is Very helpful and professional person. Perfect Guide , reasonable price and Friendly service!! Highly recommend.”
“Best arrangement although I couldn't complete the trek due to the weather. Thank you for everything. ”
“I had an amazing trip to Poon Hill. Terrific guide, good service, and a very good price :)”
“Had an excellent time. From the beginning emails were replied email promptly and details provided of the trip. Our Guide was awesome and Porter was Super Strong!! ”
“Raj from Green Valley Nepal Treks responded to all our email queries in a very efficient and professional manner which gave us confidence to choose this trekking agency. He offered us a fair price and we were happy with all the services included. Both our guide, Bhairua and porter, Santos were experienced, very helpful and polite. We often socialized with them after the long trekking days. Unfortunately we didn't mange to finish the trek because of altitude sickness and Raj and Bhairus organized our transport back to Pokhara. Raj also organized sending our luggage from Kathmandu to Pokhara and helped us find good value accommodation in both places. We would definitely recommend this agency as they are very trustworthy.”
