Upper mustang trek

  • Upper mustang trek

    My wife and I went to Upper Mustang, Nepal, in July 2013 and booked the trekking trip via the agency “Thin Air Adventure Pvt. Ltd.”. We found the company by chance in the Internet. As a picky traveller I spent quite a lot of time checking out different trekking agencies for trekking in the Himalayas. After narrowing down the field using Tripadvisor and their websites, I contacted 3-4 trekking agencies to experience their service level. From the beginning we had a good feeling in the communication with the manager of the company “Thin Air”, Som Gurung. He was very reliable and attentive. Also due to other positive previous recommendations we chose “Thin Air” and we are still very happy we did! Som organized the whole trip very well and was so supportive for each and every question we had. He managed a flexible schedule even though the paperwork would play against it. Som was so professional coming to business topics, but at the same time kept the Nepalese friendliness and modesty. And we found him to be very honest and trustworthy: everything which was promised was kept. There was a clear and straightforward discussion about the itinerary before we left which was a great thing to do by Som. We appreciated the preparation a lot. You could sense his many yeas of experience. He was so service-orientated, correct and always in time – we found him to be very German, actually!  It is a family run business: during our trekking the nephew of Som, Dil Gurung, was our guide and the younger brother of Som, Shiva Gurung, was our Sherpa. Both were also very reliable, supportive and friendly. They took care of everything around the trip. Dil is a very experienced guide with excellent English language skills and very good knowledge about Mustang and Buddhism culture. And moreover he has a very open mentality. It was very easy to get along with those two guys and a lot of fun! Great job! We enjoyed our trip so much and would like to thank the staff of Thin Air for this great trip which ensured an unforgettable experience. We give our highest recommendations for this agency. We would never book it somewhere else if we return to Nepal. We think the price-value-rate was excellent. We wish Som and his team all the best! Holger & Claudia
