On late december I went on a vacation to do the best off the beaten path trekking in nepal with my family and Raj's team. It was such an amazing experience, ive never seen anything so beautiful and ive never felt so amazed in my whole life. I felt so lucky to have the chance to experience such an amazing place, and I felt even luckier to experience it with the best people. Raj'steam were great companions. The bond that we had and omg especially the food he makes for us it was the best. Looking forward to more great experiences with Raj's team. Strongly recommend his team!

Last late December I went to do the best off the beaten path trekking in Nepal with my 2 teen kids and a cousin; we had so much fun. The view was breathtaking, the food was the best and i felt so happy with Raj's team. We had so much laughter and happiness around us. We surely recommend you to go with Raj's team. Amazing work and amazing trip. You wouldnt be disappointed, I can promise you that !

I've gone trekking with Raj and Responsible Adventures a couple of times now, but this was a special one - this is my first camping trek in the Himalaya, and more importantly, we traveled to Chandra's home - a remote village called Majkharka in the Solu district - to attend his traditional wedding ceremony. Chandra is a dear friend of mine and also my guide when I went on the Manaslu Base Camp and Langtang/Gosaikunda treks, so it was a real honour and pleasure to be invited to an event so important to him.
Responsible Adventures organised the logistics and made all the arrangements for this trip so that us city-dwellers could be left free to savour this cultural experience - from the thumping 4WD off-road journey to housing us in very spacious tents to custom meals (including my favourite freshly ground and brewed morning coffee). Raj and his crew (shoutout to the 2 Dils and Sundar) clearly outdid themselves again.
I had initially worried that our presence would lead to too much unnecessary spectacle and negatively influence proceedings, but thankfully that was kept to a minimum. I attribute that mostly to Chandra and his fellow villagers - while they were extremely welcoming and hospitable (including plying us with copious amount of moonshine "chang", a fermented millet alcohol, and "raksi", a distilled rice/millet wine), they seemed more intent on making sure that the ceremonial proceedings were done right and all their guests from near and far well taken care of and enjoyed themselves. It also helped that the 4 of us foreigners were really sporting and keen to immerse ourselves in the experience!
Great times with Responsible Adventures once again and looking forward to future trips with them!

I was initially resistant to trekking but Raj assured me that it was easy. He is so passionate about trekking and sharing his local culture that he would do anything to make his guests feel comfortable. The trek turned out to be amazing and views of the mountains and landscape just breathtaking. It was so worth it. Highly recommend Raj and his team.

Raj and his team have outdone themselves again. I believe that returning customers are the best indicator of judging good service. This was our 3rd trip with Responsible Adventures.
We were part of a small group visiting a remote village outside of the tourist footprint in East Nepal where some locals have probably never seen a westerner.
This trip was part road, trek and camp. There were no tea houses in this area. We attended local wedding traditions over 4 days becoming friends with two villages.
The food was outstanding and very healthy. We were so surprised of the variety and quality they produced at a camp site.
Tents, mats and sleeping bags were supplied, all we had to bring were personal items. Porters carried the gear and set the campsites up for us. The crew are trained in hygiene, first aid and emergencies if required. But we have never had to test this. You can trek as slow as you like, which in fact is better for you in high altitudes. This crew will never rush you or make you feel left behind.
Small group touring is our preferable way of travelling. A boutique experience allows you to connect with others without getting lost in the crowd. You are also able to have a greater say for decisions that have to be made on the spot if conditions change. Raj and his team made us feel apart of it all and we have made lifelong friends as a result.
I can highly recommend Responsible Adventures and I believe you won't be disappointed in using them.
