Everything worked out as planned!!! After 7 days spent in Nepal, safely guided by Shiva from Third Rock Adventures, we got back. All the time we were enjoying to the fullest. We were in the Mustang region during the rice harvest season. The value is very good and the service was outstanding. Naba, the director, is great and the team we had on the tour was terrific - very attentive and friendly. I'll be using Third Rock Adventures again when I eventually get back to Nepal.
Drove to Lo Manthang, explored it, visited Muktinath, and admired the beauty of Upper Mustang in just 7 days. The itinerary is the Upper Mustang Overland tour offered by Third Rock Adventures. We visited Nepal to trek to Annapurna Base Camp, but due to some reason we did this tour and loved it. The guide was superb, even the jeep driver was a fantastic guy. We laughed the whole time, listened to Nepali songs, and most importantly swapped stories with the local.
I went with a group of 7 to Everest Base Camp with Third Rock Adventures. The experience was unforgettable and far exceeded my expectations. The trip itself was well planned out, even when we encountered a couple curve balls. The daily treks, lodging, meals, checks, etc. showed this group was knowledgeable and knew the best options. Never once did I doubt or worry about our safety and well-being. We were in great hands. What really made it special was our guides Shiva and Gopal. Their guidance and friendship made the trip special and one to never forget. I highly recommend Third Rock Adventures, the EBC trek, and Shiva and Gopal as guides - I would follow them on their next adventure without question!
Me and my wife booked Everest Base Camp Trek with Third Rock Adventures. We had a great time during trekking. It was well organized trip. Our Guide Shiva was very helpful and experienced. We feel very safe. Excellent service provide by Third Rock team. We would like highly recommend it
No holidays before was so special like we had one in the Himalayas this time. Me and my friends did this trip; Shiva was our guide. What an amazing trip. I cannot fault Shiva, he had a wealth of knowledge and local expertise. The tea houses were all appropriate and we felt that we had benefited from his knowledge. I have gained a great experience that I would recommend to anyone. Thank you again to Third Rock Adventures and my friendly team along the trip.
Everest Base Camp Trek was the most memorable journey of my life and it was made possible by Third Rock Adventures and our ever so helpful guide Shiva. They were incredibly professional, efficient and their helpful guidance through the trip was very appreciated. Shiva went above and beyond to ensure a trip as safe as comfortable as possible even though we went during off season. We stayed in Nepal for a whole month and they organised every day of it perfectly to our comfort. 10/10.
This trek was thrilling and tantalizing trip for me. The Everest Region of Nepal is a trekker's paradise. Crossing three high passes in the Everest region - Kongma La Pass, Cho La Pass, and Renjo La Pass is an adventure in itself. I did it. It was impossible without the guide (Shiva) of Third Rock Adventures and his attentiveness. He was always caring and active just to make sure everything was in place. I never had a doubt about him from day first to the day we were back in Kathmandu. He professionally handled all task and never made a tiny mistake. I have to admire his experience and proficiency. The trekking trail was pleasant enough to walk for hours- the backdrop of the Himalayas was awe-inspiring. The fellow trekkers were friendly and we enjoyed the companionship of everyone we met on the way. Everyone seemed to enjoy the trip just like me.
The Operation Manager of Third Rock Adventures was amazing to talk with. His calm nature convinced me that this company is amazing. In addition to this, he briefed me every details of the trips, arranged a meeting with my guide and had a delicious cup of tea. I was so happy that I chose Third Rock just because of my contact with Naba. And soon realized that my guide was equally professional. The service was beyond imagination; I was placed in good hotels, great accommodation and meals and everything were superb just like I expected. I told the same thing to Naba and he assured me the same quality service for my future trips. And this leaves no room for me to choose some other travel agency and with my heart.
Our guide guided us on adventurous treks to the Tiji festival, from Jomsom to Lo Manthang. We stayed in interesting villages and guesthouse hotels along the way. Our hosts and our Nepalese porters were very helpful in carefully carrying our backpacks. We had magnificent mountains on every horizon, with amazing sunsets. Many western comforts were not always available, and communication with the outside world was limited, but this is due to the remoteness of the area. It was an experience we will never forget, and at a very reasonable cost. I would recommend the services from Third Rock Adventures and the trip to any trek or adventure lovers without hesitation.
My partner and I have just returned from the unique Tiji Festival in Upper Mustang, Nepal with one of the best local travel company Third Rock Adventures. We had used their service and completely satisfied as they provided a good service. Our guide Shiva and the porter were the most friendly and caring people I ever met in my life. We will not hesitate to use this company and its service again in our future trip to Nepal. Food was exceptional in the teahouses and the hot showers too! Shiva every time went out of his way to accommodate the unforeseen circumstances. Best services. Namaste
We had been planning a family vacation to Nepal for a very long time. Everything fell into place this April as my wife and I got a break from our busy work schedule. After checking with numerous travel agencies we chose Third Rock Adventures for their positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We booked the Kathmandu Heritage Tour and EBC Trek for a very good price. Our Kathmandu Day Tour was very insightful. Our guide Ishwor was quite knowledgeable and patient. He took us to places of historical interest not mentioned in the guidebooks and made our tour interesting by narrating the stories behind these sites. It was fascinating to visit temples and palaces that have been in existence for hundreds of years. Our Everest base Camp Trek was equally enjoyable. We were very well looked after by our guide Shiva on the trail. He was fun and friendly and looked after us like a protective mother-hen. So that we would not fall sick, he would check the food carefully before it was served and make sure that our drinking water was properly boiled and sterilized. Thanks to him we could make it to as high as the Everest Base camp and Kala Patthar without getting ill. We had a great trip, all thanks to the wonderful team at Third Rock Adventures. From our first day in Nepal to the day we departed, we were made to feel like honored guests. Thanks for a wonderful stay and a memorable vacation. We will surely be back and the next time too we will be traveling with Third Rock Adventures!! They deserve nothing less than five stars!!!
