Upper Mustang trek
I recently completed a trek to Upper Mustang with Nir as our guide. Nir organised the whole trip from arrival in Kathmadu until the time we left. Nothing was overlooked. Our hotels and tea houses were all of a high standard and meals provided were excellent. Nir always responded to our queries and requests within hours and his knowledge of the area and Nepal was excellent. He quickly assessed our fitness and ability and there was flexibility in the itinerary at all times. I would highly recommend Marvel Adventure to organise and guide you through any treks in Nepal.
Annapurna Sanctuary trek
The owner of Marvel Adventure, Nir, recently guided my son and I on this trek to Annapurna Base Camp. Nir, who grew up in the Everest region, is an excellent guide with some 16 years experience. He speaks English very well and also speaks Hindi and Malaysian as well as his native language Nepali. He was extremely helpful with his local knowledge, organising things day to day and changing the itinerary en route to suit our needs. Wih this support and the the assitance of a porter we have a great trek and I would not hesistate to recommend trekking with Nir and his company.
Experienced, flexible and trustworthy guide and a great trek to Poon Hill in Annapurna!
My friend and I had been travelling throughout India and Nepal for 6 weeks and had a five days in between trekking in Langtang Valley and going to Bhutan. Instead of staying in Kathmandu for another five days, we wanted to get out of the capital and see another side of Nepal.
I was recommended Marvel Adventure by a friend I had met travelling, so contacted Nir and asked him what he recommended doing in the five days. He suggested that we fly to Pokhara from Kathmandu, then hike to Ghorepani/Poon Hill and back (2-3 day hike) and then spend the last two nights in Pokhara before flying back to Kathmandu.
It was the perfect way to spend five spare days in Nepal as we got to see some of the Annapurna region. Nir was very professional and organised every aspect of our trip, including flights, accommodation, TIMS permits and on the ground transportation. He was also very flexible with us, for example, we were hiking at a pace that got us comfortably back from Poon Hill at a decent hour that we had the option of spending an extra night in Pokhara as opposed to just the one.
I can definitely recommend travelling with Nir and Marvel Adventure to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, flexible and organised guide, and will definitely be coming back to Nepal for some more trekking with Nir!
Nepal is ready for you!
While spending a month traveling around Nepal and India, the best 8 days of my trip were spent with Marvel Adventure trekking in the Annapurna region. I can't imagine having a more authentic or heart-opening experience of Nepal without Marvel.
For our small group, we began emailing the owner Nir (pronounced "Near"--as in not far) a few weeks before our arrival, explaining that it was our first time in country. We had some solid ideas of what we wanted to do, but also needed some on-the-ground expertise and recommendations. Nir was exceptionally prompt and collaborative helping us plan our trip, and he custom tailored 8 days exclusively for us--not just with trekking, but lots of other activities as well.
Nir advised us on everything we needed to know (like what to bring) and handled everything from in-country transportation (flights, cabs, etc) to hotel accommodations, permits, and booking everything in between. He even personally inspected some of the places we wanted to visit. Always with a big smile on his face, his presence kept us laughing and having fun the whole trip, sharing stories about growing up in Nepal and teaching us how to eat, speak, and drink like the locals. He's great at adjusting plans quickly too, letting us add another traveller onto our itinerary at a moments notice. He kept us fully informed everyday of our schedule but also surprised us with delightful treats and mini-excursions that kept our well-orchestrated trip always feeling like an impromptu adventure.
I left Nepal feeling like a local leaving home, and I can't wait to get back there with even more friends now knowing that we have the country's best guide and operator to start planning our next life-changing adventure.
Hello everyone, We recently got back from the Annapurna Panorama (up to Poon Hill) and we had an excellent time! Nir, our guide and the founder of Marvel Adventure, was amazing and super helpful. He is so knowledgeable about the mountains and always made sure we were alright. Highly recommended!
