Amazing Trekking Company

I have hiked with Mingmar 4 times now (Annapurna, Everest, Lantang, and Manaslu) over 5 years and each trip gets better. Nepal itself is amazing, but having a good guide can help make the experience even more magical. Mingmar and his team know the best tea houses to stay at, all the mountains and wildlife, and make sure you have a safe, fun, and memorable journey all while at a competitive price compared to other companies! I could not more strongly recommend Northern Trekking Team for your trip to Nepal.
