Everest Exploration - Australia
Reviewed on 06/Dec/2018

I just want to thank you Hari personally as you made the hiker holiday seamless and an experience. From your  guide Suresh, Assistant guide Lachkindra, and your Sherpas Eki, Arki and Ram. Can I honestly say that I have never met people in my travels that would go over and above and are so beautiful and loving that I met when we conquered base camp (I mean that from the bottom of my heart). These human beings should be commended and given to every person that would like to trek any mountain in Nepal. They are patient, giving, kind, they always have a smile and just pure mountain people with true grit. I would do anything to meet up with them again one day and show my true thanks.

After sitting some nights and afternoons and listening to other guides I cannot believe how they treated their clients with disrespect (I was actually appalled). At no point in our entire trip did we feel like we didn’t belong, talked about or disrespected. We felt the complete opposite.

You should be commended on your achievements and hard work, as of late, they should be commended on their honesty, loyalty and commitment to your company.  I cannot wait to trek with Crooked Compass again and recommend it to others. Please do not think I am writing this because I have to however I am writing to you because as tough as Base Camp, I would never have done it without Suresh and Lachkindra and you. Thank you for putting us with the right people and surrounding us with love and respect. On Behalf of our Group Tania 


Everest Base Camp & Muktinath Trail - Australia
Reviewed on 07/Jul/2010

We had a dream to reach Mt Everest Base Camp since we heard about this. One of my friend recommended to Trexmount so we have decided to use them for arranging our trek to Everest Base Camp. The treks were very well organized and the guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and looked after us at all times. Nothing was too much trouble for them and there was always a smile on their faces. We stayed at the best available tea houses and the guides ensured that meals at the tea houses were prepared hygienically. So we have returned back to Nepal with our Family and gone up to Muktinath on the Lower Mustang route that surpassed all expectations. Thank you Trexmount & all who made our holiday very enjoyable.

Everest base Camp Trek - New Zealand
Reviewed on 27/Oct/2006

We set off to follow the footsteps of Edmund Hillary and did Everest base Camp Trekking in October 2006 with Trexmount Ventures. There were so many highlights in the journey however – the school at Kumjung , the hospital at Kunde , the monastery at Tengboche and the foot of the mountain he submitted was an awesome experience. The views were spectacular, the trail was challenging but we made it and fulfilled our dreams. We were well looked after during the trek and our porters made life easy by doing all the hard work, carrying our packs and encouraging us along the way. Hari and his team worked their magic and we came home with tales to tell our families & friends about the wonderful experience of the footsteps of Hillary. Thanks Hari & Trexmount Team, Namaste from all the NZ ladies

Thank you once again for organizing and officiating a great trip for us, as always, which did have its challenges at times!!! I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the village and were truly honored with the recognition and presentation. Finally to you personally, your hospitality and generous goes way beyond the normal course of expectation. Once I am back into a routine I will get some pictures over to you, if you so wish. I will be placing some info and pictures about the trip and our experience on Facebook this weekend. Once again, thanks for everything, kindest regards, Lynn & Maurice Canada
