“All contact with the girls in the W.E office was informative and very helpful. Their patience at answering questions was wonderful. A great job from both Learna & Renee. We as a group thoroughly enjoyed our whole trek. It was well organized and outfitted, the crew were so accommodating and hard working - and it all ran as smoothly as humanly possible with any changes due to unforeseen circumstances sorted asap. I would recommend WE tours to anyone. Thank you for an unbelievable experience.”

“has been a while, but I am very satisfied with the organization of Asian Heritage Treks and Expeditions.
Lots of experience in organizing your trip, they match your wishes and in case of difficulties / problems / illness or something they are ready to help you further. I had already lost my heart to the country itself. I advise everyone to travel to Nepal and consult this organization!”
The tour operator responded on :
“Dear guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to review your trip with us. It is a pleasure to know that you enjoyed your trip with us in Nepal. We hope to see you back in Nepal again soon!

Mount Annapurna in sight, from Annapurna Base Camp

Annapurna Base Camp lies at a height of 4,230 meters and is where mountaineers start their summit of Annapurna I, the 10th highest peak in the world at 8,091 meters. The ABC trail traverses a variety of terrain ranging from glacier moraine and rice terraces to rocky stone steps and, along the way, offers an amphitheater of huge Himalayan peaks.

In addition to great scenery, the trek takes you through the villages of the ethnic communities of Gurung and Thakali, the latter renowned for their incredibly tasty Dal Bhat, also known as ‘Thakali’ sets. While this trek can be undertaken all year round, it is especially beautiful during spring as rhododendron flowers along the trail turn red, pink and white. The Annapurna Base Camp trek is a classic trail and is recommended for anyone looking for a great trekking experience!
