  • Allan Gaun - October 27, 2021

    My trip with Hari was absolutely adventure packed. He’s an experienced and hella funny guy that helped me right when I got off the plane in Katmandu. Ensuring I was safe and fed in my hotel even before the trekking tour started. Dil the trip advisor was incredibly friendly and helpful for navigating the city and ensuring I was up for the tour. I learned about the traditional mountain lifestyle as Hari was originally from the mountain villages, and felt safe all the way throughout my trek, he even found the best rooms with views for me and checked in on my health towards the top of the mountain. It was only an 8 day trek, but I feel like we talked about so much and had the most insightful journey I could ask for. Throughout the 8 days, you will go through so many ups and downs, it’s a journey of a lifetime, we are extremely fortunate to have guides like this around. Resham firiri.

  • Frances W - March 01, 2020

    The Annapurna Base Camp trek via Poon Hill is one of the most beautiful and scenic treks in the Annapurna region. We had an amazing time with our guide Laxman who always made sure we were comfortable in the best tea houses and topped up with Snickers and Oreos to keep us going! During our trek, unfortunately, Coronavirus issues took a turn but our guide's quick thinking got us off the mountain and back to Kathmandu before roadblocks and a nationwide lockdown happened the next morning. We cannot thank him enough! Our guide was amazing and had our safety in mind, not only during the trek but also continued to support us (along with Dil, the tour manager) after the Trek ensuring we were safe and taken good care of.
    Communication with Dil was amazing, he was always quick to answer emails and any questions we had both before and after the trip. Both Dil and our guide, Laxman we're a pleasure to deal with and we will be back again for sure! Can't recommend Alpine Ramble highly enough!

    Amazing ABC

    I completed the ABC 8 days trek in early June 2019 and it was one of the best experiences ever! I was initially apprehensive as a solo female traveller, but I needn’t have worried. From my initial enquiry Dil Gurung (the owner) was great, answering all my questions fully and always responding so quickly. I didn’t need an airport transfer as I was already in Nepal, but Dil kindly offered should I need one. I got great pre-trip information both via WhatsApp, and Dil came to meet me in person at my hotel to go over my itinerary which was such a nice touch. I also was able to borrow a sleeping bag and down jacket at no extra cost.

    My guide (Saugat) and porter (Nauser) were incredible and so professional, making my trip so enjoyable. Saugat had such great energy and knowledge about the Annapurna region. He always knew about the best times to trek- for example we set off for ABC at 4am and it was so worth it as we were there for the sun rise and we were the only ones there which was an amazing experience. He always went out of his way to check I was ok and ask if I needed anything. Nauser was so great and strong, carrying all my belongings perfectly, I could not fault him. Most importantly, I always felt safe while trekking with Saugat and Nauser, 10/10 for them both.

    Dil went above and beyond to make my time in Nepal brilliant, offering to help make plans or assist in any way in the time for before and after my trek. Another great thing is they can personalise the itinerary, for example I wanted to stay in Pokhara afterwards for an extra couple of days instead of returning back to Kathmandu, and they sorted this out no problem.

    Alpine Ramble Treks are brilliant, as they coordinate everything for you (transport, accommodation, food, trekking permit etc) so you can just enjoy the trek. I would highly recommend ART due to the fantastic service, communication and great value for money prices! I will definitely be using them again!

  • Adam Tuner - April 09, 2019

    We have just returned from a trip of a lifetime to Nepal!
    We both trekked the Annapurna Base Camp Trek including Poon Hill.

    Dil (Company owner) made us both feel very welcome and happy throughout the trip and before we went, he replied instantly to emails and always was there to help. Pick up from the airport was reliable. He also helped organize our trip (Flights and advice) even after we left his organized trek. He also is doing a lot of important work to try and help poorer and women within Nepal via skill development etc.

    Our guide Dil Man was very attentive and helped us throughout, many tour companies try to rush you up and down each day, Dil Man was respectful and patient, he let you go at your own pace. We went at peak season (2nd week of October) I would recommend highly to accept the crowds and go at this time of year, the skies were very clear and view brilliant. Safety was Dil Mans main priority, he always checks how we felt and also was keen to emphasize how important altitude sickness was and was careful to take care of us with this.

    Food was included by Alpine ramble and you could have as much as you wanted, this was unique for us. Many tour guides/ groups had strict limits on food that was included. Water/Extra drinks we brought ourselves. Budget £10 a day.

    The accommodation was basic but in line with all the options inside the tea houses.

    If you are looking for a top service look no further than Alpine Ramble.

  • Rebeccah Ymalay - February 19, 2019

    We cannot recommend the team at Alpine Ramble highly enough for any trekking that you wish to do in Nepal. Being first-time multi-day trekkers, we were very nervous. But the day before our trek began, Dil took the time to meet with us, get to know a bit more about us and to discuss the itinerary. He also answered any questions we had and immediately made us feel a lot more comfortable and prepared. We were very impressed by his professionalism, warmth, and kindness. Unfortunately, due to VERY bad weather in the mountains, we were unable to make it to base camp. But our guide (Dilman) and porter (Anil) kept us safe and took us an alternate route still with AMAZING views of the Annapurna ranges. They were so accommodating, kind, and patient with us throughout the whole trek. By the end of the trip, they were no longer our guide and porter, but our good friends. We also got to learn more about the Nepalese/Gurung culture and language from our Guru master, Anil HAHA. The mountains were so serene, the food was delicious and the tea houses were clean and comfortable. Dhanyabad to the Alpine Ramble Team, in particular Dil, Dilman, and Anil, for making this such a wonderful experience for us. Pheri Bhetaunla brothers.
