This trek was the best trekking experience I've ever had. The Nepal Hiking Team organized a guide and a supporter who together made this trek an unforgettable adventure. I undertook the ABC Annapurna Base Camp trek. Along the way, we became friends - Bhisma, my guide, took care of everything, including selecting teahouses/lodges for our overnight stays that were comfortable and not overcrowded, considering all my needs. My supporter, Prabin, learned how to use my camera during the trek and became a close buddy as well.
Traveling alone gave me the advantage of immersing myself in the family lives of some local people on the trek. Their open minds and friendly manners made all interactions welcoming.
Describing the trek's breathtaking views is difficult. My specific wishes regarding photography were fully accommodated. I always had at least one of the two companions by my side, ensuring I always felt safe and secure. Even the teahouses, where room sharing is common, were perfectly organized. Bhisma proactively made contact with other groups we met, arranging shared rooms, which led to friendships with other wonderful people who were also comfortable sharing space with me.
The trek, which began and ended in Kathmandu, was exceptional, always under the 'supervision' of my friend Bhisma. Now, I understand the high ratings for the Nepal Hiking Team on TripAdvisor. They combined the perfect organization with the perfect people to fulfill their promises.
A special thank you to Ganga for organizing such outstanding trips with exceptional service and people.
Lastly, I must mention that my first booking with the Nepal Hiking Team was in 2020. I made a down payment but had to cancel due to Covid. They promised to keep it valid for a lifetime, and they honored this promise without any need for additional insurance or usual formalities.
