Our party of six have just returned from a fantastic 19 day trek around the upper Dolpo circuit. Our Sherpa guides and cooking team, led by the very able Tenzing, provided excellent support.Nick Shearer, Oamaru, New Zealand
This is the third time I have had Dawa and Dream Himalaya Adventures look after logistics on trekking and climbing expeditions. I have become accustomed to the high standards of care, good communication and attention to detail that Dawa continues to provide.
Other family members and friends of ours have also enjoyed trips to Nepal using services provided by Dream Himalaya Adventures. Dawa and many of the staff have become our good friends. We would recommend Dawa and the team at Dream Himalaya Adventures as your first choice for logistics if you are considering a trek or climb in the Himalayas.

Dream Himalaya Adventures provided exceptional service and support both before and during our expedition to Kyajo Ri (6186m). Dawa looked after all the logistics perfectly, including getting us in and out of Lukla with masses of gear. Their choice of teahouses during the trekking was great-all were comfortable, very friendly and clean (no one was sick in the 3 weeks of trekking and climbing).Parry Guilford, 38 Riccarton Road East, East Taieri, Dunedin, New Zealand
The entire staff who travelled with us were exceptional; the porters, cooks and, in particular our climbing sherpas Pasang and Sherku. Not only were they very strong climbers, but their care and humour during both the acclimitisation and camping phases of the trip was fantastic. It was a privilege to have spent time with all these guys. We are very grateful to them and the rest of the team for creating an excellent, happy environment, keeping us well- and well fed-and getting us to 6000m before the weather turned. Kyajo Ri is a breathtaking mountain-and away from the crowds.
I strongly recommend Dream Himalaya Adventures for any trekking or climbing treks in Nepal. You'd be mad not to use them.

We were referred to Dream Himala Adventures by our friends who have already been avid clients and it definitely did not disappoint. Joining their treks would mean a worry-free trip to your destination. From fetching you from the airport to bringing you to your hotel, from coordinating all the logistics from a city tour to rushing to check in at the airport for our flight to Lukla and back to Kathmandu, everything was so smoothly handled that you really didn't have to bother yourself with anything else other than your own personal preparation.Consuelo Seriña, Philippines
They will make sure you have the best teahouses to stay at at each stop. We never had any problems with our guesthouses. They were all clean, had a western toilet, had good food, and were all safe.
They have guides assigned to you that are well equiped with experience of going up and down treks. Our head guide (cause there were 2 provided for our group), has had 20 years experience in guiding groups to Mt. Everest's base camp. These are very strong sherpas. At one point, when we were reaching 5,000 masl, a gas tank appeared at the side of one of our guides. We haven't seen that on any other sherpa that the other groups had. This told us that they really are prepared should anything happen.
Dawa really provides excellent service. I had the unfortunate event of being hit by a bad case of AMS that I had to be flown down to Kathmandu. Dawa worked relentlessly with the helicopter rides to the ambulance to the clinic and finally with our insurance to coordinate with the expenses that were incurred because of this incident. I felt confidence that everything would go smoothly because of how hard working he is.
I would strongly recommend them to anyone who plans on going up on a trek in Nepal. From our experience, we can really attest to the great service we experienced from everything from the trek to staying in Kathmandu.

I had the opportunity to climb with Dawa and Dream Himalaya during my successful ascent of Everest in May 2016. During the preparation for the Expedition I found Dawa and his team to be responsive to questions and assist in all facets of the necessary planning.
Upon arrival in Nepal, Dawa was constantly available and provided an exceptionally high level of service and support. During the Expedition he continued to provide strong logistical services and remained available to assist with any issues. The work of Dawa and his team was fundamental in us having a successful and safe ascent of Everest.
I would have no hesitation recommending Dream Himalaya as a company to organise an Expedition with. His level of service was exceptional and exceeded my expectations at almost every opportunity. Dawa is professional, diligent but also a wonderful person to work with.Dr. J Roth, Australia

We had the beautiful chance to do this trek during our honeymoon trip. We have a hard time to describe with words how wonderful it was: the scenic sights of the Himalayas, the incredible Machapuchare Mount (Fishtail), the magic rhododendron forests, the warm local people, the amazing culture, the funny gray langurs, the wonderful friends we met and the fun company of our dear guide Karma and his son. A unique experience, which we decided to end at the romantic Fishtail Lodge in Pokhara, with gorgeous views over the lake and the Himalayas. Truly one of the best treks we've ever taken, with the best organisator ever: Dawa and his team. We hope to be able to come back soon for another trek!! :-)Monica Sans & Carles Turró, Barcelona

After arriving in Kathmandu in October 2016, I contacted Dawa Lama of Dream Himalayan Adventures to see if he could organise my trek around the Manaslu Circuit at short notice.Greg, Burgundy, France
Dawa arranged to meet me in Thamel at my hotel and review my trek needs. He then moved quickly and professionally to arrange all the necessary permits and found a very good guide, Mekh and porter, Danah, to accompany me on this 16 day trek through a beautiful but challenging area of the Himalaya.
Planning and delivery of the Dream Himalayan teams services was done to a high standard throughout my expedition and the post trek follow up, including dinner and airport transfer were all seamless.
I would say that attention to detail, good planning and sensible and realistic delivery of the service side of the business are Dream Himalayan and Dawa's strengths and I would happily retain them again to host my holiday in the future.

During my last trip in 2015, I thought that if anyone else from my family would ever visit Nepal for the first time, I would entrust their safety and enjoyment to the Dream Himalaya team. A few months ago, my teenage daughter said she'd join me for a trek to Annapurna base camp this fall. So I called Dawa right away. As expected, we had a grand time! Will recommend them again and again.Henry Nakpil, Manila, Philippines

Thank you for managing the logistics of our Manaslu & Tsum Valley trek in Oct 2016 so well. With landslides near Lokpa, the entry point to the Tsum Valley cutting off the trail, your suggestion that we do the Manaslu Circuit first in reverse (clockwise, in true Buddhist tradition!) was a wise one. Thank you for the confidence you had in our abilities (from past treks with you) to take up this challenge. Hardly any trekkers do it this way & this route is mostly taken by expedition groups. Climbing ~ 4500 ft steeply from Bimthang to the Larkya La pass & descending ~ 2000 ft to Dharamsala in near white out conditions was a challenge that we were initially apprehensive about but with the moral support that our excellent staff Karma & Pemba rendered we hardly felt the strain. Thus one challenging day & many blissful days hence ensured that we had some great time on the Manaslu circuit before the trail to Tsum was opened up again. Karma`s good natured cheeky humor & Pemba`s multi tasking go getting attitude ensured that even in the somewhat dire conditions that we found ourselves at Mu Gompa, Gumba Lungdung & Ripchet we still had hot food in our tummies & a warm bed for the night. Thanks to you , Karma & Pemba once again & hoping to continue our journeys in the coming years.
