Trip of a lifetime
Brilliant experience over two weeks. Unfortunately we had a few issues with cancelled flights from India but Paul did everything possible to rearrange things for us so we didn’t miss our trek. Our guide Dol was brilliant - very knowledgable and caring. Unfortunately he also had an uncanny skill of winning at cards every night! The two porters Mon & Lukhaman were brilliant and never stopped smiling, especially when beating us at snooker. Who knows how they get a snooker table up to to 4500m! The trip itself was great - hard work but very enjoyable. Two of our group were unfortunate to develop altitude sickness and had to descend - one by walking and one by helicopter. The arrangements made by Paul and his team were great and I felt reassured that Paul was there to meet my wife at the hospital and ensure that everything was ok. I would undoubtedly recommend DWT - a local company doing things in the right way. We hope to come back to Nepal sometime to explore more of many trekking routes available and would look no further than DWT.
We arrived as a group of 4 and began with a small missed flight! however Paul and his team rearranged everything with no worries, this made us know that we had booked with a wonderful company!
We had the most fabulous guide, Dol and two amazing porters, Mon and Lukman. Unfortunately two of the group got bad altitude sickness. One was able to walk down however the other required helivac and once again Paul and his team organised everything without any extra stress to us.
The whole team at Discovery World Trekking where professional and can not fault the care and organisation.
Dol really went above and beyond to ensure all our needs where met and even on those extra cold nights ensured we had extra blankets! He is a true gentleman and would hope to see him again for future trips.
I would highly recommend DWT to others.
Thank you Paul, Dol, Mon and Lukman without you all I would not have made base camp. A really magical trip and you should all be so proud to be part of a great company.
15 day EBC trek via Goyoko lake
Extremely reasonably priced trek with a very ethical and respectful firm.
Communication with Paul was easy throughout with prompt responses at all times. Our group threw quite a few problems Paul’s way (delayed start dates, Helecopter evacuations due to altitude sickness to name but a few!) and they were always met with solutions with the utmost professionalism.
We were looked after from start to finish by his friendly and helpful staff and our guide Dole was a pleasure to spend time with.
I would not hesitate in recommending Discovery World Trekking to anyone,
Keep up the good work guys!!!
Thanks Paul and our guide (Meng Sing). We had a memorable life time adventure experience with “Discovery World Trekking” team to Mt.everest base camp trek . Highly recommend company for ur adventure trip !
Epic Trip to Gokyo Ri
We had an awesome trek up to Gokyo and Gokyo Ri with our Guide Saroz and Manish. Had heaps of snow over a few days that set the scene for some amazing views. Thanks to Paul and his team for all their help and making things so easy for us. Will definitely be back.
Trekking to Gokyo Ri
This was our second trip to Nepal and the Khumbu region with Discovery World Trekking. We used Paul and the team again because we were super happy with our last trip up Lobuche East Peak. We've built a good relationship with the team and some of the Sherpa climbing guides and will continue to use Discovery to do future trips and peak climbing in Nepal.
Everest base camp
had one of the best experiences with Discovery World Tracking .Paul who’s a manager gave me a great experience from start to finish, he kept in contact with me before I arrived through emails ansering any questions i had. As soon as I arrived to Kathmandu there was a long wait getting through customs but i was still welcomed with a smile by my guide, Prem Kumar Tamang who had waited in the hot sun for 2hrs for me and then took me to Paul’s office . Paul explained everything about my coming Everest base camp track and made me feel so comfortable about everything. Prem was very professional making sure I was safe an enjoying myself on the trip there's not much more he could of done, he treated me like one of the family. On the way back from base camp Paul went out his way to phone to congratulate me witch i thought was nice.Im planning on coming back for my 40th birthday an will most definitely be using Discovery and would recommend Paul an his team to anyone
Best experience ever
I had one of the best experiences with Discovery World Tracking .Paul who’s a manager gave me a great experience from start to finish, he kept in contact with me for the whole time.As soon as I arrived to Kathmandu two of my guides Manish and Sarus welcomed me and took me to Paul’s office . Paul explained everything about my coming Everest base camp track and made me feel so comfortable about everything .
I got super lucky with my guides -Manish and Saroz.Both treated me with so much respect and definitely were a good company during the trek , if I’d be needed anything they would always be there to help me , therefore I’d totally recommended this company , I can guruntee you wouldn’t be disappointed!!And I’m hoping to return soon to do other treks and will definitely be using Discovery World Trekking!
Great trekking company!
If you are looking for a guide company for trekking in Nepal, look no further than Discovery World Trekking. Quite honestly, I would stop researching trekking companies right now and spend more time researching the right trek. I went on 2 treks with this company for a total of 24 days and the entire team was great in every way. All the office work is done by the owner Paul. He is very responsive to all questions and arranged an incredible team for our treks. The trekking team was amazing and we had the same team for both treks, which was great. We had a main guide (Simbir), assistant guide (Maniss) and 3 porters (Manchsit, Kul, and Umesh). Simbir is a young guide with the strength of a 25 year old and the wisdom and maturity of a 50 year old man! All the friends and family on our treks weren't necessarily the most experienced, including myself, at this sort of hiking, but Simbir was always right there to assist us and have his team do whatever it takes to help us. For example, we had to get over a couple of landslides. If Simbir and his team had not been there, I probably would have turned back because of my lack of knowledge on how to deal with those situations. He made what seamed impossible sort of easy after his team made new trails for us. Simbir also arranges all the guesthouses and orders meals. It is quite a lot of work, and he has such a great attitude. All the team seemed to really like the work. The porters' work was incredibly difficult, but they are all so strong and helped in many other ways other than carrying our stuff. I remember Kul pointing out where to step on some more complicated parts to keep from sliding. Not everyone in our group needed this extra help, but if we did, every single person on the team was willing and happy to help.
World Trekking seems to treat the employees well too. There is a limit on how much they are allowed to carry. Some companies don't have these same standards and I saw men carrying ridiculous amounts of baggage in other groups. We had no problems communicating with Simbir. Even though the porters didn't speak English, we really enjoyed being around them. They were just really good guys.
So to sum it up...do not hesitate to use this company. I would spend more time researching the treks you want to take based on the type of weather you want to hike in, the particular scenery you are looking for and the types of villages you want to experience. We did Annapurna Sanctuary and Upper Mustang. I highly recommend Upper Mustang.
Trekking to Gokyo
New year and back in Nepal for the second time out with Discovery World Trekking.
This trek took us to Gokyo and back to Lukla in 12 days of amazing scenery.
There was a few days of snow after we passed Namche which made for dreamy trek all the way up to Gokyo.
Our guide Soraz ( also from our previous visit) was great and very knowledgeable and always smiling.
Helping him was a very enthusiastic Manish.
Thanks to Paul and his team from Discovery World Trekking for a great trip!
