Our experience on the Annapurna Base Camp Trek was truly extraordinary. We embarked on a 6-day trek with a helicopter ride back to Pokhara. Additionally, they arranged a helicopter tour to see Mount Everest, with stops at Kalapthhar and Gokyo Lake. The service provided by Nepal Hiking Team exceeded all our expectations. Ganga Ji demonstrated exceptional organizational skills, promptly addressing all our pre-trek inquiries and following up with a check-in call afterward. Dhurba, our guide, was absolutely fantastic, accompanied by Gokul and Aatish, our reliable porters.
Having previously completed the Everest Base Camp trek, I was familiar with challenging hikes, but it was my wife and 12-year-old son's first hiking adventure. Dhurba took it upon himself to hike with my son, as my son trekked at a faster pace while I stayed back with my wife. Throughout the journey, Dhurba consistently checked on us, ensuring our well-being. They encouraged us to hike at a comfortable pace, emphasizing the importance of enjoying the journey rather than rushing against the clock.
The accommodations provided in hotels and tea houses were exceptional, offering the best available options. Dhurba made sure that we enjoyed nutritious meals every day, ensuring we obtained quality sleep and proper recovery for the following day's hike. Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend NHT for any hiking expeditions in Nepal or Bhutan.
