My name is Yehuda Unger – CEO of CMRLinx – an Israeli medical software company. It is my 3d trip to Nepal. My first trip to NEPAL was 11 years with my Best Friend (Nachman Etstien) in which we did the Langtang & Helambu Trek. A year after we did the Jomsom Trek from Pokhara to Muktinath. We did those treks solo (Without Porters) using some local agents to get basic services (Trek permits, Flights, Ground Transportation) – nothing was exceptional regarding the services. This year (SEP 2011) we decided to do the Annapurna Circuit from Besi Shar to Jomsom. This time my brother (Roni) joined us. We did it again solo except from Roni, who passed a surgery and needed a porter. For this trip (after making a detailed research) I selected NEPAL SOCIAL TREKS as our agents for the basic services – Domestic Flights, Trek Permits, Ground Transportation and Hotel in Kathmandu. It’s not my habit writing posts over the Internet, however in this case it was inevitable. NEPAL SOCIAL TREKS and its two managers – RAM and BASU was a big positive surprise. Anything I will say regarding this Company and its two owners will be an understatement. Its starts with the communication – it was very easy to communicate with RAM via e-mails and SKYPE. As a matter of fact I closed all the details including price quotation over SKYPE from a coffee shop in Israel. Since RAM is so computer literate and responsive, we managed to finalize the whole deal in few hours – including a deposit of 100$ which was performed via PayPal – which simplify the transfer. About the prices; since I did my homework in advance I have a clear Idea about the prices. I can say that the price quotation issued by NEPAL SOCIAL TREKS was more than fair and there was no reason to bargain! I accept the quotation as it is, and realize in Kathmandu that the NEPAL SOCIAL TREKS respected 100% all the services and prices we agreed upon. RAM came to pick up from the airport free of charge and provided the same service at the end of the visit. On the first day we were invited by RAM to a dinner. We find out that the best way to changing big amount of money is via NEPAL SOCIAL TREKS! Ram was very helpful with the prepaid SIM CARD for our mobile phone. During our stay in Kathmandu RAM and /or BASU pay us a visit every day just to verify that all is OK. Their office in the Thamel was open for us for any request – always with cap of tea!!!! We received a triple room according to our request and detailed specification. On our last day in Kathmandu, we have a late flight at 22:00 – so RAM enabled us a late check-out and provided us with a room to take a shower and refresh before leaving to the airport. All these are small things that make the difference. Hotel Moonlight is operated by NEPAL SOCIAL TREK and is located within the Thamel. For the price we paid (45$ for a Triple Room) I can say that the place is OK with very kind and willing to help staff. One of the biggest successes was the porter provided by company. Nil Sherpa doesn’t speaks English – except for few word (Up-Up, Down-Down, Slowly-Slowly, very hard….etc). However you rarely meet such a person- modest, responsive, sensitive and ready to help. He did everything with tones of commonsense – no words were needed. We asked Nil few times to go ahead and book for us a lodge. In each of the times he booked a place and then returned 1 our back to meet us on the Trek – it was his own idea! If you work via NEPAL SOCIAL TREKS, and you need a porter (which is also a guide) ask for NIL – however keep in mind that he weight about 45 kilo, and it will be unfair to let him carry more than 18 Kilo maximum. We are planning our next trip to NEPAL next year – probably doing the Mustang trek. It goes without saying that SOCIAL NEPAL TREKS will be again our agent company, and NIL will be our porter. It was a great pleasure for us working with RAM and BASU and the NEPAL SOCIAL TREKS staff.
