“This is my second time to Nepal, and I have to say that Bashu far and away the best guide I have ever had. His briefings every evening and the following morning were concise and clear, the pace he went at was very appropriate for the group (we were quite strong), while making sure that we didn't overexert to stave off the worst of the altitude. I contracted diarrhoea on the 2nd day and immediately he banned me from milk and meat, and kept me well until after we did the pass. He went so far as to compel me to use my sunglasses to prevent snow-blindness. There was another trekker who was by herself and she had contracted frostbite and Bashu attended to her immediately. On the route, he was able to advise when to take transport so avoid road walking (it was dry and there was a lot of dust). When we flew from Pokhara to Kathmandu, unlike other guides, Bashu came along and was able to mitigate the worst effects of the flight cancellations from the fog. The efficacy of his instruction was the envy of many of the other trekkers, who didn't hesitate to appeal to him.

Bashu worked extremely well with the porter Suman, who really fulfilled the role of an assistant guide rather than a porter. His English was superb and he knew the itinerary and route like the back of his hand. I felt we were lucky to get the both of them but this could be part of the training that the Company has organized for their employees.

Overall, this trip was worth every penny and I look forward to travelling with Bashu again!”

“My guide, Krishna Dhakal, was great, knowledgeable, very patient and very helpful. I wouldn’t have completed Thorung La Pass with out him. Also Unique’s -20 down sleeping bag really kept me warm at High Camp (4700m) on a winter! Will definitely recommend to friends! Thanks!”

Annapurna Circuit Trek - Overview

The Annapurna Circuit trek is one of Nepal’s most well-known and classical trekking routes. The Annapurna section is a 55 km long massif, connected by the Kali Gandaki Gorge in the west, the Marshyangdi river on the north and east, and the Pokhara valley on the south.
