My friend and I did the 8 day Khopra Ridge Dada Trek in September 2019. It was in absolutely beautiful country with the forests and snow capped mountains. The views were awesome. The trek has a lot less people on it than other treks. Our guide and porter were 10 out of 10 to say the least. They were professional, friendly and helpful with absolutely everything. The tea houses were very cosy and warm, and a beer and the end of a great days walk was a luxury. Khopra Ridge was the highlight of the trek sitting under the "arena" of snow capped mountains around us. It was worth the two nights there to trek further up the mountains, brilliant. I would recommend and have recommended this trek to anyone who will listen, thanks for such a fantastic trek Outfitter Nepal Treks, we'll see you again.

If you are reading this, you are probably in the same spot I was in when I was looking for an outfitter. Why did I give Outfitter Nepal Five Stars? Because I couldn’t give them six! First off, in choosing an outfitter, think about what it is that you are looking for. This is most likely a big trip for you, there are MANY unknowns and you want everything to go well so that your adventure/vacation goes perfectly, Right? Not only did Outfitter Nepal have everything handled from the initial booking, to the minute I made it through customs, to the minute I was dropped back off at the airport, but they had contingencies in place for when things outside of their control did not go as expected. Now that says an enormous amount about an outfitter! I am confident in saying that every person that works for Outfitter Nepal, from the personnel in the office, to the Guides, to the Porters, to the owner of the company, have one thing at the heart of what they do – and that’s YOU! I recommend this company and I would choose them again for my next trip. Outfitter Nepal is the right outfitter to choose, if you book with them I am sure you will enjoy your trip!

Outfitter Nepal's Annapurna circuit: solo female trekker

Outfitter Nepal's Annapurna circuit: solo female trekker.
I highly recommend Outfitter Nepal's 21 day tour of the Annapurna circuit. I had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The hotel in Kathmandu was good. The tour of Kathmandu was very interesting and informative. Our guide (Sabinita) was excellent. The trekking in the Himalaya was an experience I will never forget. The scenery is spectacular! My guide (Soman) and porter (Niroj) were excellent and professional in every way, they looked after everything from organising logistics to serving me dinner. I felt entirely safe and secure as a solo trekker and I found some friends along the way. I had fun, laughed lots, ate a lot, trekked a lot! The accommodation in the guesthouses is adequate (understandably infrequent hot shower facilities, one fire in the common room, high carbohydrate diet). The people are warm and welcoming and happy to provide you with whatever they can. I had many apprehensions about going to Nepal and trekking alone but I found Nepal to be an unexpected treasure! If you have any idea to go, you must do it! Outfitter Nepal is the company to choose. They responded swiftly to all my emails filled with many questions. I was met and greeted by one of the company directors (Raj) who was charasmatic and friendly. Also, I was taken out for a farewell dinner on my return from trekking which was a delightful surprise!

        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 Outfitter Nepal Treks & Expedition Pvt. Ltd.

        Outfitter Nepal specializes in trekking tours with a local touch.

        What Makes Them Stand Out?

        Entirely locally owned and operated, Outfitter Nepal not only offers thrilling treks in one of the trekking capitals of the world, they also provide distinctly local and cultural insight. All of their tour leaders are experts in leading trekking and well qualified to help if issues arise. They are also extremely dedicated to the natural landscape, and take responsible environmentalism very seriously.

        Who Travels With Them?

        Trekking is ideally suited to travelers who enjoy challenging physical activity, are healthy and able bodied. Outfitter Nepal tours have a variety of difficulty levels within the “challenging” and “extreme” realm.

        Where Do They Operate?

        While their speciality is, unsurprisingly, Nepal, where they operate 207 packages, they also offer trekking experiences in Bhutan and Tibet. Multi country tours are also available.

        Why Travel With Them?

        If you’re looking for a uniquely local experience in Nepal and after a physical challenge, this tour company would be a good fit. With a slogan like “Discover the world...and yourself” Outfitter Nepal understands the transformative nature of a trekking tour, and do everything they can to make the experience as meaningful as possible.
