Annapurna Base Camp trek Reviews

We had such a blast.
5 - Excellent
  • Pamela
“After much consideration, we finally did the Annapurna Base Camp Trek! It was always on our list and the fact that- along with the successful completion of the trip, we were given the best care and services along the whole journey just proves how efficient our agency truly is with their work! It was a beautiful journey that had the best experiences, both in terms of natural wonders and the technical and organizational aspect. We had absolutely no problems at all whatsoever! From staying at the guesthouses in the villages and talking to the Nepali ladies who owned the place, to the wonderful guide we had- Bhim, who was just the best with his profession, everything was arranged in the best possible way for us. We were always comfortable with the services we were provided and the care shown to us by Bhim during the trip really deserves praise. It was a beautiful trip where we had an amazing time and were provided the best services and the best guide that we could have asked for. Everyone at the agency is the most passionate in what they do and it definitely shows. Their care towards their customers is praise-worthy and commendable. We felt very safe and worry-free. In light of these facts, they are also worthy of any trekker or traveler’s time and money. We had such a blast doing the ABC Trek, and if we ever decide to go back to Nepal in the future for more adventures, then we are most definitely choosing them again!”
Annapurna Circuit Trek (8 days)
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“Really enjoyed the Annapurna Circuit Trek (8 days) with this local travel expert. Dil the managing director was very organized and adjusted the itinerary per request (e.g. adding acclimatization day). Iman my guide set a good pace for both of us and made the whole experience very smooth and enjoyable. Will definitely recommend this agency and am considering coming back for another trek with them!”
Unforgettable ABC trek in late-Feb 2023
5 - Excellent
  • YU SHING LAU
“I went to the ABC trek in late-February 2023, which was unforgettable, with professional help from my guide Namgel and porter Sona. I was lucky to hike before the peak season and enjoyed every peaceful moment in the mountains. The view of Annapurna covered in snow during the late-winter season is gorgeous.”

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!
