Beautiful Lake
Travis from London recommended me Third Rock Adventures for trekking adventure in Nepal. I wasn't sure about that so I called Naba personally and had talk about the trek and Nepal landscape and surprisingly he was so accommodated with Nepal Himalayas. I wanted to do Mardi Trek but somehow I booked for Gokyo Lakes trek. It was a wonderful trekking expereience. Thanks to Bimal thapa who was my main trekking guide from day 1. He was friendly, energetic and humble. The trek to Gokyo lake is not just about alpine lake but also about mountains, local people, and Nepali unique culture. I learned so much from this trek. I couldn't be more happier. I definitely recommend Third Rock Adventures and Bimal Thapa for trek to Nepal.

Fantastic climb
Bimal Thapa, our extraordinary guide from Third Rock Adventures, was the linchpin of our remarkable journey through the Himalayas. His expertise, unwavering support, and infectious enthusiasm transformed the expedition into an unparalleled adventure. His knowledge of the terrain and unwavering commitment to our safety and enjoyment were truly commendable. Bimal's presence was a guiding beacon through every challenge we encountered, ensuring not just success but a sense of deep fulfillment. Naba, the founder of Third Rock Adventures, has curated an experience that defies superlatives. The meticulous planning and attention to detail were evident from the start. From the moment we set foot on this expedition, it was apparent that this journey was designed not just for thrill-seekers but for those who crave an authentic, transformative adventure. The climb itself was a test of determination, and yet, the rewards were beyond compare. Mera Peak's daunting elevation at 6,461 meters and the technical challenges of Island Peak at 6,189 meters pushed our limits. The thrill of standing atop these peaks, with the vast expanse of the Himalayas unfolding before us, was a breathtaking moment that words can hardly capture. What made this journey even more exceptional was the thoughtful touch of a farewell dinner organized by Third Rock Adventures. Gathering for a heartfelt Nepali feast, complemented by local beer, was a fitting conclusion to our unforgettable odyssey. The evening allowed us to reflect on our achievements while sharing stories and laughter, fostering a genuine bond among the fellow adventurers and the remarkable staff who made it all possible. I can't emphasize enough how elated I am with the entire experience. Third Rock Adventures, under Naba's guidance, offers more than just a climbing trip. It's a life-altering expedition that reshapes one's perspective on nature, camaraderie, and personal triumph. I am more than happy to recommend Third Rock Adventures to any adventure enthusiast seeking not just a climb but an unforgettable odyssey that will linger in your heart forever.

Bimal the best guide
Nepal is all about mountain, local people, and their warm hospitality. On top of that, the excellenct service of Bimal made this trip of ours a never-forgettable adventure. We had moderate challenges for the trek to Muldai and Poon Hill. Everything was top-notch and the views are stunning.

Great Guide and Great Trek
This was a family adventure with Bimal Thapa. We loved his proficiency and his skills for the adventure. He shared that he did his trek for more than 20 times and has all knowledge for the trek. His connection with local people along the route made us have good food, room and extra service in needed. He also tried local soup and drink which was by the way great experience. Bimal was extra careful for our health. He knew when we will reach the point and let us had extra rest. That was great from his side. He was funny as well. Great guide

Abc with Mardi Trek
Great Trek with Bimal! I am more than satisfied with the service level of this company. Atrek with another company was somehow bad if comparing their with Third Rock's service. You should not always go with popularity of a company. Make sure to check their review and also get to know with the company. I was in contact with Naba, the main brain behind this company and loved how he approached me and offered me the info. They are just great, and you are suggested to book with them. Make sure to talk with Naba for any customization and interest. He personally customized this trek and I added Mardi Trek.

Frist Best Trek
I had no idea about trekking in nepal but once I talked with Naba, he ensured about the trek in Nepal with ease. He called me on whatsapp to further discussion over the trek I was about to do. He attentively listened to my priorities, my experience, and my interests. He then suggested me this panorama trek. We met him in Kathmandu and the local guide for this trek. Our guide Bimal was a good person with all interst to serve us the best. And the service was great. We have the best memories and it was our first trek ever in Nepal. We will again plan for another trek in Nepal and we will ask Naba for his service.

Superb Experience with them
We did the Manaslu trek, for our first experience in Nepal with Third Rock Adventures. Naba was so great since the first email; very responsive and super helpful in helping us identify the best trek as per our expectations and wishes. He picked us up at the airport in person, came with us the first day to change currency, indicated to us a great place to eat, checked we had all necessary gear, and provided what I missed at no additional costs. He works with a great staff. Our guide Bimal Thapa was great during the entire trek: patients, fun, insightful, and supportive. They definitely put the customer's experience as their priority and it felt more friendship relation than business. I am considering going back soon for more trekking, and would definitely go back with the same team!

Best professional and the value
From the very first email to Mr Naba I have been very impressed with how totally professional the Third Rock Adventures team have been. We took the Tiji Festival trek to Upper Mustang, a trip that lasted 18 days. During that time Mr Naba, Mr Bimal and the required porters were an absolute pleasure to be with. We couldn't have found a more skilled, hard working, helpful and friendly group of guys to guide and look after us. I cannot recommend this company highly enough and would/will definitely give my friends at this company a call to arrange my next trek. Thanks again guys, love you all.
