Antti Sakari Lehtelae , Heino kasken katu 5 B 15 00180 Helsinki Finland

I travelled with Nepal Hiking Team for the gorgeous Annapurna Base Camp Trek on March and it was one of the best trips that I did with my friends! I knew that I had selected the right travel agency as the correspondence with Mr. Ganga and Mr. Balaram right from the start was a smooth and information-rich communication where all of my queries were promptly answered. I was impressed with their services from the very beginning, as their ideas helped me and my friends arrange the trip in a very well-organized and trouble-free manner. Then as the day we arrived at Nepal, we were greeted by Mr. Ganga himself who welcomed us with flower garlands. We met our guide Bhatta as well, who helped us get to the Hotel in Kathmandu.

The whole trip was filled with unforgettable experiences, as from the very beginning- the trek was filled with our guide helping us achieve the ultimate level of care and comfort. Bhatta and the porters who were with us were always glad to be of help at all times. It was so impressive to see our porters carrying heavy loads uphill without complaints or stopping- it was a humbling experience for us and we implore all future travelers to Nepal to hire local porters and to tip them generously for their hard work. Likewise, Bhatta himself was also extremely helpful to us- it was because of him that our journey became even more amusing and delightful. He would always spout ideas and information about the small chortens and gumbas we passed, along with the village and the culture of the people. He arranged the guesthouses and the meals for us without us having to bear any hassles.

The Himalayan views were just the most thrilling part of the trip; the first view of the Machhapuchhre Himal from Pokhara was the hammer to the nail that the trip was going to be a grand adventure! To sum the conclusion in short- Nepal Hiking Team really is the best travel agency operating in the country, and we had one of our best times in Nepal thanks to the care of the agency and its team. We got to experience the beauty of the Annapurna because of them in a very wholesome manner without any sort of problems. It was an amazing adventure that we would like to recommend to everyone who wishes to visit Nepal any time soon. Thank You Nepal Hiking Team!
Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Nepal Hiking Team

As a solo female traveler, I recently did the beautiful Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Nepal Hiking Team. I chose NHT once again for my trip to Nepal this year as I was immensely impressed with the services I got when I trekked with them last year as well for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The natural scenery of the Annapurna Trek was one of the things among others that really caught my attention during the journey. The variety of the trail that I walked upon with my guide was also an impressive feature that made the journey a rich and enlightening experience for me. During the first few days, I found myself trekking through lush forests with narrow brooks cutting across the land while the next- I would be going uphill and downwards along mountain trails with the rice-fields and terrace farms serving as the amazing backdrop. Furthermore, the gorgeous Annapurna mountain ranges with mountain peaks like the Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre and Hiunchuli among others were almost always in sight throughout my journey. They were inspiring and totally worth the journey! When I reached Base Camp, nothing really prepared me for the stunning 360-degree landscape that the Annapurna Sanctuary offered. I honestly think it beats Everest Base Camp in the ‘most beautiful landscape’ category! In my opinion, the ABC trek is easily one of the most picturesque treks and you will certainly end up taking loads of photos as I did! My guide was just the most amazing travel companion- he was kind and patient with me and made me feel safe and secure. Although, I do admit, the rocky terrain was quite challenging and hard on the knees, helped me take it easy on the steep ascent from Tikhedhunga to Ulleri. But despite that, it was definitely one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my lifetime, and I’m really grateful to Nepal Hiking Team for organizing this trip for me. Mr. Balaram arranged all my trek logistics beautifully, and I was in constant contact with the office, just a phone call away if any problems arose. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Nepal Hiking Team was without a doubt- a spectacular trek–one that I will always recommend to those who want to do a hike up in the Himalayas for the first time.
