Takane Oura , Tokyo, 106-0031 Japan

I had the chance to undergo the Annapurna Panorama Trek with my family with Nepal Hiking Team. We had opted for the Panorama Trek because it was easy to do and did not need much physical exertion from us. And it was one of the most beautiful trekking journeys because we believe the Annapurna region of Nepal is one of the most beautiful regions out there. Hiking to Ghorepani and then to Poon Hill, both of these destinations provided us with gorgeous views of the mountains. The landscapes of the destinations were all also very beautiful. The accommodations that we stayed at were excellent and my whole family loved Nepal’s hospitality. Especially on the more isolated villages and far-off settlements, the people were extremely friendly and welcomed us like one of their own. The views of the mountain ranges from the vantage points are surely one that you would want to look at once in your life. The whole experience was extraordinary and utterly beautiful and amazing. Nepal Hiking Team is an amazing travel agency that took care of all. We should definitely be going with NHT again should we decide to visit Nepal in the future.

Our trip was fantastic! We selected a four day Annapurna Panorama Trek with Nepal Hiking Team. Ganga was professional and very responsive to our questions in emails prior to our arrival in Kathmandu. He met us at the airport and all went perfect from start to finish. We highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team. Our wonderful team – guide Arun, porter Prim and junior guide Suzan were top notch – professional, kind and a joy to be with. We felt safe and well cared for the full week we were in Nepal.

My husband and I (mid 50’s) did the trek and while he has hiked Philmount Boy Scout Camp in New Mexico with our son, I am not an experienced hiker. While the trail was rugged and “Nepalese Flat” is not a cliché we accomplished the trek in almost “normally it takes” time. It was exhilarating. We are so glad we did it and want to thank Ganga and Team for their excellent service and care. We enthusiastically recommend Nepal Hiking Team!
