Extra mile service
Service was excellent. They really go an extra mile to give their clients a stress-free experience. From beginning to end Paul, the humble owner was always there to show support and care.
1. My friend and I came from 2 separate countries. Discovery made 2 trips just to pick us up and we need not remind them to do it.
They knew and they were prepared.
2. Paul was like a brother who would remind you of the things you have to do and bring. Since we were no experienced hikers, he lent us sleeping bags and a duffle bag.
3. He provided a very helpful guide. Subra. He was a bodyguard, a guide and a photographer all rolled into one.
4. He booked us at good hotels and lodging houses with astounding mountain View.
5. am from a tropical country. I live by the sea, I had prepared for EBC physically. I did some trekking, swimming and jogging. But my big mistake was I failed to acclimate on high altitude never did I think that I would experience altitude sickness but when I reached dingboche. Altitude sickness struck. My partner immediately asked for rescue and Paul was quick to respond. In less than 15mins I was airlifted from dingboche. And soon as we arrived the airport an ambulance was already waiting for us and I was taken directly to the hospital. Paul was there waiting. He already made arrangements at the hospital and reserved a room for me.
When I was fully recovered, again Paul, the owner was there to check if we were ok.
This service deserves more than 5 stars. No other company would extend this kind of service. It's more than just providing good trekking and traveling service. It's definitely doing doing business with much care, consideration and support to the clients.
I will do EBC again when I am more prepared. I will seek for discovery world trekking service again. Coz I know it's trustworthy, the service is excellent and I will be safe with them.
Khopra Danda Trek
Seen many good reviews about Discovery World Trekking, So I decided to email. I got a response from Paul very quick. Before I decided to make the booking I had many questions, but Paul was patient and responded my emails quickly. The booking went very smooth. The first day I got picked up and met Paul in person which I find great. Gives a personal touch. During my 7 day trek everything was arranged. My teahouses were nice, the meals were good and overall the trek that I had booked was perfect. The Itinerary that was sent to me was the same as the trek. From the moment that I got picked up for the bus to Pokhara till the moment they brought me back, all was organized.
At the end of your trek you meet Paul again in person and you can tel him your story. Also if anything did not go according to plan, he will listen to your advice. Which I found professional.
All in All I would recommend Discovery World Trekking.
Excellent Trekking Company for Upper MustangTrek
Discovery World Trekking rranged our 12 day Upper Mustang Trek (Jomsom to Lo-Manthang). They were excellent, attention to every detail and very responsive to our questions. We had the best guide ever (Simbir), assistant guide (Mannis) and porters (Kuhl, Omish and Manshit). Highly recommend Discovery World Trekking for all your Nepal trekking needs!!!!!
EBC 13 days trek
There are so many trekking companies in Nepal and through TripAdvisor I narrowed it down to Discovery World Trekking. Picked up the phone and spoke to Paul. They provided information and is easily contacted. I am finally doing my solo 13 day EBC trek with a guide and porter.
Got picked up on the 11-Oct-2018 from the airport and taken to my hotel in Thamel area. Met with Paul at his office the next day for final payment and instructions about the trek.
Started my trek on the 13-Oct-2018, got picked up from my hotel and driven to the domestic airport for the morning flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. There I met my guide Prem and porter Pradeep. Helpful, knowledgeable and fun. Cater for all the accomodation, food and your needs while on the trek and at the many tea houses. Also there is regular contact with base - Paul with updates.
Yes we made it to ECB, really over the moon about it.
As he said earlier when we first met, “he treats all his clients as family” and this really shone through.
For this I am very thankful and will not hesitate recommending Discovery World Trekking.
Mount Everest Basecamp & Kallah Pattar - Discovery world Trekking
We had an absolutely fantastic 12days trip with guide Dol. we were a group of 6 friends, all having some experience with hiking but most of us had not been at similar altitude previously. With good guiding and relaxed athmosphere we all agree that it was an utterly beautiful experience. Food was good, and alot of shops along the way to buy neccessities - everything from soap,food,snack, sunscreen and clothes. Accomodation was allright, a bit cold at night. Can highly recommend very warm clothing for MEB and KP summit, as well as a deck of cards. Views are stunning and the hiking was not too physically demanding. Sun was out every day. We wrapped up with a day in kathmandu which was a fun way to end our Nepal experience. Could not recommend this trip more!
10 days trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar with Sherpa Dol and Discovery World Trekking
I can highly recommend Discovery World Trekking. Flawless arrangement from start to finish. Much thanks to the excellent Guide in charge; Sherpa Dol. I send a special thanks to Sherpa Dol; thank you for your extreme energy and patience, your calm methods, your insightful reflections and valuable guidance in the mountains. Without you Dol, we (and I dare to talk for our entire group here) could never have experienced Nepal as we did. Should I return for another trek I would definitely use Discovery World Trekking again, and specially would try to collaborate once again with Sherpa Dol. Your friend Andreas Wannerwall
Annapurna Base Camp Trek
Having recently returned to Minnesota from Nepal I must say this Trek was the experience of a lifetime! Paul was very good at answering questions promptly before we left. Our guides picked us up from the airport and brought us to the hotel even though the trek was still days away. We met with Paul to cover the details of the trek beforehand (and also I think to assess our fitness level since there were 5 family members ages between late 40’s to mid 60’s), it was pretty thorough. Our guides Simbir and Maniss led us from the hotel to the tourist bus and all throughout the trek and back so that we never had to worry about transportation. On the trek they were very attentive to our needs, one in the front of the group and one in the rear, by me! They booked all our rooms and took all our food orders, even supplying apples and pomegranate seeds after meals. The food really exceeded our expectations. They also carried snacks for us and made a special chili sauce for us to enjoy. There were times when the hills and the heat were really challenging for us and Simbir would offer to carry our day packs and extra water to lighten the load. I also really enjoyed their enthusiasm, you could tell they love the scenery as much as we did. Annapurna base camp was amazingly beautiful, make sure to venture out at night. Simbir has a nice camera and took many photos of us on the trek, including some great group shots!
We had 3 wonderful porters; Manchit, Kul and Umesh. I was glad to know that DWT has weight limits for their porters, it was important to us that they were treated well. The entire company is from the Gurung region and are like family.
A few suggestions I would make:
The bus ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara was supposed to be 6-7 hours but it was 9 3/4 hours and the roads are bad. You might want to not do that both ways. On the way back we decided to fly, it was a beautiful 25 minute flight on Yeti airlines and Simbir and Paul made all the arrangements. $120 well spent.
I’m not sure it’s possible, but if we could have trekked shorter distances each day and stretched the trip to 9 or 10 days, it would have been more enjoyable for us. I think most people that do the trek are younger than us and recover easier.
The guest house accommodations get tighter as you approach base camp. We always had a place to stay and a comfortable bed with a warm comforter, but some nights we needed to share a room, among our party of five.
Overall it was an amazing experience and accomplishment and I would recommend Discovery World Trekking to anyone planning to go to Nepal.
Very helpful. Good trekking guide
I wanted an extraordinary proposal for my partner so i thought EBC would be a good choice since we will be given 12 days astounding views and rewarding experiences.
I searched for a good agency and luckily i came across discovery world trekking. Ive read good reviews about it so i sent them an email. Paul,the owner was quick to respond.
October was our scheduled trip. But that was also the time i had problems with my back -i was diagnosed with lumbar strain 3 days before the Nepal trip. I didn’t want to spoil the whole trip with a back pain so when i met up with paul, he advised me to take a rest and do a mini trek to acclimatize and see if i would have problems with my back. It was a good advice instead of pushing me to just cancel right away.
I felt the need to be honest with him regarding my purpose and he was cooperative. He said he will try his best to make our dreams come true. True to his word, he was very supportive.
Paul even provided us stuff we failed to bring like comfy sleeping bags and duffle bags. He gave us a very helpful guide who spoke good english. Subraj.
While we were more than half our trek,my partner experienced acute mountain sickness.
In the middle of the night subras carried her on his back on the way up the hill where the mountain was located. Paul checked on us every once in a while.
The following morning my parter was back on her toes again and we proceeded with our journey. It was a smooth trip . Discovery world trekking reserved good rooms for us. When we reached dingboche, my partner again experienced mountain sickness the guide and told me that it was no good to carry on. We called paul and he coordinated the rescue.
Thats the good thing about discovery. They keep track or their clients and see to it that their needs are met. In those crucial times in the middle s of the everest region, we were lucky to have easily contacted paul. He sent a rescue helicopter right away.
I was still able to pursue the proposal. Although it wasnt on my target location, EBC but instead on the heli rescue back to kathmandu. I felt so relieved that i could rely on discovery world trekking not just in making EBC dreams come true but making sure lives are safe and saved.
He had problems with the insurance that he recommended, but he talked to the hospital management and we were given discount for our hospitalization . We were surprised that the helicopter rescue was ridiculously expensive but again he did not allow us to shoulder the burden, alone. He would always find a way to help and make his customers feel happy.
I don’t think other owners will do the same. He would always visit us till my partner got well.
With discovery world trekking you build also a good relationship and we were able to leave nepal knowing we have a good person to come back for in our next adventures.
Just a tip. Don’t underestimate trekking in high altitudes. Prepare and get a good insurance that will cater to your needs.
Incredible Manaslu & Tsum Valley trek
We just got back to Kathmandu after finishing our trek. I was looking for a trek that had huge mountains, diversity & culture & once I read about the Manaslu/Taum Valley trek I thought it would be perfect & turns out it was even better than I expected! It was all amazing, from the huge river gorges & bridges to the beauty & peaceful Buddhist culture of Tsum Valley to the amazing & absolutely massive Himalayan mountains.
Paul & his staff from Discovery World Trekking were tremendous. I had a problem with my visa at the airport & thank goodness Paul helped me sort it out. My guide Sudenta & my porter Hom were amazing & I can’t say enough about them. This was a once in a lifetime experience & I can’t recommend them & their company enough.
Even Better than I Could Imagine!!
I can't imagine a better guided experience than what Discovery World Trekking provided for us on the 15-day Upper Mustang trek in Nepal! Our guide, Simbir, couldn't have been more gracious and competent. The whole crew made it safe and fun. They supported us and set us up for success. They even made me feel confident on the brief moments of technical terrain. I've trekked around the world and never had a better experience! I think of them now as friends and would enthusiastically recommend them. The trek itself was one of the neatest experiences of my life.
