Based on our own experiences, we decided that it was time that travel providers changed, time in fact to create something new. Truthfully, at one point we were thinking to be one of the more than 630,000 youths who leave the country every year to work overseas. The other side of the coin was to stay here and be one of the 10% of youths actually making a difference and supporting the country from the inside.
Being tired of the old way things were done, we wanted to give other travellers the opportunity to see the world as we see it. We wanted to smooth out the bumps that we came across ourselves while exploring these areas and help others have an even better experience.
While running a trekking agency was a totally new field for Saugat, Pradeep was co-partner in another trekking agency for three years prior to forming Magical Nepal. So, it was a perfect fit actually!
However, we took the plunge, and started Magical Nepal with a lot of enthusiasm, (a lot of balls you might say!), Rs 1,000 and a cup of tea!
One year on, we are growing fast – much more quickly than we anticipated. So we are having to improve ourselves and grow with the company. Our main intention still stays the same: to provide you with the best self-collected information, rather than drag you into a fixed price package deal. In this way, you can sit down with us, and create your own journey to fit your personality, interests, fitness level, and budget. In this way you will have the chance to fully enjoy your time in Nepal and feel you had the chance to explore it yourself.
A big item on our list when establishing Magical Nepal was to operate all treks locally, to include the community and environment in the benefits your money brings to the country. Our Team is growing day by day, as is our involvement with local communities we trek through. We hope we energize the local communities as much as well feel energized by them. We want everyone to experience the magical world of Nepal the way we do.
Saugat is avid hikers, tech enthusiasts and a passionate travaller. He handles the technical part and make sure that it is available. He mostly travel or trek during his free time.

A friend and I used Magical Nepal for the Manaslu Circuit in November and it was the highlight of my 9 month trip. We contacted Magical Nepal by email before going to Nepal and Pradeep was always so reactive and thorough in his answers. We felt like we would be in good hands so we decided to use their services. Ajay our guide despite being only 25 had trekked the Manaslu Circuit 22 times already so he knew what he was doing and we always felt safe. He catered for all our needs and we felt really spoiled. It was a tough circuit but our guide was always patient, encouraging and helpful. I can only recommend Magical Nepal
My husband and I had a thoroughly mind-blowing 21-day trek on the Manaslu circuit, including the additional Tsum valley hike, which was one of the best parts of the whole adventure-very glad we did it. As Nepal and trekking beginners, our worries were laid to rest with Pradeep’s timely and detailed emails, attentively answering our questions so that we could quickly make our decisions from a totally different time zone. Our guide, Arjun, was stellar on the trail and clearly one of the best, most intuitive and service-oriented guides. I would recommend Magical Nepal to anyone, as we clearly received top notch service for a great price.
seeking help to plan my solo trek to Mustang, I was provided with great information and advices. The staff is amazing and full of experiences. All the information about weather, transportation, permits, prices.. was very up to date and accurate. Communications were super easy and straight forward. All in all there is absolutely nothing I could complain about this company. I would definitely use their service again and recommend them to friends and family.
I used Magical Nepal for Kanchemjunga circuit last May and Manaslu circuit & Tsum valley trek this October. Smooth communication and organisation for both trips. Great porters and guides and we’ve become good friends by the end of both trips. I feel safe and really well taken care of throughout the trip and I can trust the team fully. I am very satisfied with the company and will definitely use them again and again.
I recently did my 5th trekking in Nepal. Started trekking in Nepal 1985 as solo trekker on my own with Annapurna circuit and Everest/Kala Pattar. When I learned that it is compulsory to have a guide for some trekking destinations, I did my Manaslu circuit as my first guided trek. Magical Nepal provided me the best and most valuable information upfront, so I decided to book with Magical Nepal in 2014. It appeared that this was in any regard a perfect decision. I had no doubt that I would to book again with Magical Nepal, so did I for Kanchenjunga in October 2015. The destination , organization and my guide topped my already good experience from Manaslu, making the Kanchenjunga trekking one of the best experiences in my life. On my request to Magical Nepal for new trekking destination in October 2017 they recommend me Nar Phu Valley combined with Tilicho Lake trek. It turned out that Nar Phu is still a relatively unspoiled place with few trekkers and Magical Nepal’s recommendation matched my expectations again. For sure I will book my next trekking with Magical Nepal.
I trekked all across Nepal for half a year, and Magical Nepal helped me organize one of the best treks of them all! The Kanchenjunga region is a real treat – it isn’t nearly as busy or developed (for tourists) as other regions in the country, but just developed enough that there is no problem getting a guest house every night (no camping necessary!) The mountains are gorgeous. The people are friendly and welcoming. Magical Nepal connected me with an awesome group of trekkers to walk with and the nicest guides. I would (and have) recommended their services to anyone trekking anywhere in Nepal – but their specialty is definitely Kenchenjunga region. They know what permits to get, how to get them, can book you a flight or a transport car in a snap, and turn it all around incredibly fast. Plus, they did it all for very good value $ as well. I’ll book all my future treks with Magical Nepal! Highly recommended!
We used Magical Nepal to outfit our climbing expedition to the Manaslu region. We were impressed with the professionalism and easy operation working with Pradeep as all of our questions or concerns were answered swiftly. The moment we landed in Kathmandu we were greeted by Pradeep and Saugat and taken care of. The logistics of preparing our climbing permits, shopping for food and transportation could not have been any smoother. All the guides we met working for Magical Nepal during our 6 week expedition were friendly and most helpful. We will continue using this outfit for all our future climbing expeditions and recommend their services to anyone traveling to the Himalayas.
