Great Lower Mustang Experience!
I had my first trip to Nepal, and this was indeed a great experience. Since I was traveling alone, I wanted to go with a guide so that I could see and experience everything during my 10 days stay. Nittam was helping me a lot to come up with few suggestions that would fit my requirements, and I felt like I was getting a great amount of advise and help to plan it out well.
I went with the guide Kiran, who was very helpful and excited about making the best out of the trip as possible. He was also flexible about the plan, if I wanted to change a few of the things along the way. He also knew a lot of great places to go e.g. for paragliding in Pokhara, and in general all the better restaurants. I have as well severe peanut allergy, and he always went to talk to the kitchen to make sure that I could eat the food.
10 days if definitely minimum if you want to go to the higher elevations, since it requires adaptation. I went to Muktinath as the highest place, and then trekked all the way down to Poon Hill. I was really lucky with the weather (start October), and it was only raining a little bit in the afternoon two of the days in the mountains. I had some very clear mornings and nights where I had great view over the mountain tops!
Overall, a very very pleasant experience, and I am definitely going back again to Nepal on a longer trek!!

Great Experience in Mera Peak
It was our first time in Nepal and they made it perfect! We summited Mera Peak and despite of being a little bit hard for us, our sherpa and guide were very patient and helped us to make it possible! We really appreciate it. Nittam was all the time very attentive with us making all the administrative aspects of the trip smooth and easy. If we travel again to Nepal, we will make sure to do it with them! 100% recomendable and satifactory!

Trek and Touring in Nepal
I have been to Nepal many times to climb and trek. I tried Hiking Nepal this trip and they were great. Nittam who arranges trips and lodging is great to work with. She is very responsive to the needs of their clients and is very customer service oriented. The guide that was initially going to work with us on our trek she felt was not up to her standards and she changed our guide at the last minute. Our guide that she chose at the last minute was Bale Tamang and he was wonderful. He was fun to be with and was very attentive to our needs. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. He is also very knowledgeable about the area. It is easy to tell that he enjoys what he does as a guide. Nittam also arranged some other excursions around Nepal including visits to Pokhara, Lumbini, and Chitwan and the accommodations arranged were very good. Our trek in the Everest region was excellent with great accommodations. We went to Kala Patthar which is the place to go with its spectacular view. I have been to everest base camp before and we chose not to go there this time because in all honesty there is nothing really to see there. The view from Kala Pathar though is spectacular. This was my 6th time to the Everest area and this trip went very well. I will definite use Hiking Nepal when I return to Nepal again and would encourage anyone that is looking for assistance in a trip to also not hesitate in enlisting their services.
