It was my first time to go for trekking and was really great experience. The guide with us (Chuda) adjusted our pace of trekking well. Lodging and food were also very nice. I hope i could continue the trekking few days. 3 nights 4 Days trek was too short!!

During the trekking about 2800 m, I felt a light headache due to its hight. Chuda noticed it and helped me to carry my luggage. It was very helpful to me, and I was impressed by his good obesuation skills.

1st and 2nd day were easy. 3rd days were the hardest day for me with long hours walk and climbing down. Which caused horrible ache, over all scenery was very beautiful; especially walking in the forest was pleasant. Chuda san (Guide) had been always very nice, kind, diligent and modest. We are so satisfied with hid accompany, very appreciated. Food was also very good with lots of choices at every restaurant. For lodging , I loked the view of the 2nd night hotel where I was able to enjoy mountains. I also liked the relaxing and beautiful village of the 3rd night. Hotel at pokhara was clean and at a very convenient location.

Our guide Jhanak was amazing. He taught us many things about the mountains, the people and the country. We think that the agency was very helpful for all the logistic and the organization of the trek.
The price is also good and every aspect was above our expectation. Jhanak is rally professional and he showed he controlled the situation perfectly. He was very nice and kind and generous of his time.

The Pilgrimage trek to Damodar Kunda and Lo-manthang in Upper Mustang in Nepal has been exceptional and truly exciting and fulfilling. The trip was made comfortable and enjoyable by the excellent services rendered by the staff of Alpine Asian Treks & Exp (P) Ltd who took special care of each one of us to make it a life time experience for all of us.

              About Signature Collection by Gate 1

              A unique collection of luxury trips designed by Gate 1 travel.

              What Makes Gate 1 Signature Collection Stand Out?

              These are luxury minded trips with a local focus. Guides are all local experts, from and living in the destination you’re visiting. Each itinerary features exclusive experiences. Groups are small and each day is full of activity but well balanced.

              They focus on offering only a select group of trips in this special collection - allowing them the freedom to create truly spectacular itineraries - which include more inclusions in the price than their other collections.

              The tagline is “More Luxury for Less”. These tours may not be in same luxury travel class if you’re used to Abercrombie & Kent, however where comfort and extravagance meets fun and busy travel days of sightseeing and tours, you’ll find Gate 1 Signature Collection.

              Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Gate 1 Signature Collection?

              Those travelers who are willing to spend a little bit more for a 4-5 star experience, will probably find a sweet spot with Gate 1 Signature tours. These trips tend to be attended by older travelers, in the 50+ range.  

              Don’t expect too much strenuous activity. You can expect easy paced walks, guided tours and lectures, and stops to explore interesting cultural sites and historical attractions.

              While some of these cultural experiences, included in their “Signature Experiences”, are truly unique, be wary that many of these inclusions are fairly standard offerings - such as a hot air balloon ride over the African savannah. So the luxury experience of exclusivity you may be expecting is to be taken with a grain of salt. These tours offer wonderful experiences - but the destinations or activities are not always particularly uncommon or rare.  

              Top Destinations

              They currently don’t offer an overly extensive list of countries, but tours do go all over the world. This includes Central Europe, Spain, and the UK, Israel, Jordan and Morocco, Peru, Southeast Asia, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

              Gate 1 Signature Collection Travel Style

              Signature Collection tours with Gate 1 aim for comfort, ease, and unique cultural experiences. Like their other brands, Gate 1’s Signature Collection is about making sure your sightseeing is maximized, and the price is right for the experience.

              Most sightseeing, meals, wifi, tips, and their “Signature Experiences” are included in the itinerary price - unlike Gate 1’s main brand which offers less inclusions. This type of itinerary more helpful to budget travelers wishing to pick and choose which activities they would like to pay for. Gate 1 Signature Tours, however, are best suited to those who want more inclusions and less hassle to have to decide on how to spend their travel time.

              Why Choose a Tour with Gate 1 Signature Collection?

              If you’re an older traveler looking for a boutique, comfortable, and well paced tour, the Signature tours may suit you very well. Travelers love the customer service, attention to detail, and depth of knowledge the guides bring to each day on the tour. There is also a good balance of free time and optional additional sightseeing opportunities.

              All tours feature included “Signature Experiences” which are the main highlights that make the Signature Collection tours stand out from the other Gate 1 brands. These are unique excursions, usually with a strong cultural focus - such as an evening of Irish music in Galway, or a traditional dinner in the deserts of Morocco. They also often include lectures that explore a destinations history or a specific facet of the culture.

              About Alpine Asian Treks & Expedition

              Trekking tours in the Himalaya’s are the speciality, however cultural tours and family friendly offerings are also available.


              What Makes Them Stand Out?

              Though their name suggests that they are a trekking tour company, Alpine Asian Treks is actually much more. They offer several cultural tours and family friendly tours along with the classic Himalayan trekking experience. They do have a special focus in trekking and peak climbing, so if you’re looking for a this kind of trip, they would be perfect.


              Who Travels With Them?

              Trekking and peak climbing tours are specifically geared toward fit, active, and adventurous travelers. Alpine Asian Treks will be more enjoyed by those who are experienced. If this is less appealing, consider a family friendly tour, or cultural adventure. Their tours are budget conscious without jeopardizing safety.


              Where Do They Operate?

              They operate in the Himalayan regions, primarily Nepal. Treks include the classic circuits and Everest climbs, but they also venture into some peak climbs and treks that may be more unfamiliar.


              Why Travel With Them?

              A lot of choice among treks and climbs, including several that are less well known puts Alpine Asian treks a step above the rest. Their tours are perfect for experienced trekkers, as well as those searching for a beginners challenge.
