Traveller Review

  • Highly recommend Annapurna Circuit!

    We had the most amazing experience with our guide, Hari, and the Nepal Hiking Team. We completed 11 days of trekking the Annapurna Circuit with a group of 3.

    The circuit itself is very diverse, with very good infrastructure and beautiful views. The hiking team organized everything for us flawlessly, making it easy for us to just focus on the trekking and views. We also want to highlight the great flexibility of the company in adjusting our itinerary on short notice as we decided we wanted to add a few days to do Poon Hill.

    The best part was our guide, Hari Gurung, who was extremely attentive to all of our needs, is very funny, has a great personality, and is very experienced, with 39 years of experience trekking in the Himalayas. We were a bit worried about altitude sickness since it was our first time so high, but with the amazing care and recommendations from Hari, none of us got sick :) He also was able to give us interesting details about all the places we passed and the culture and history of the country, non-stop joking and laughing with us. He went above and beyond in every way possible, and he made the whole experience so enjoyable.

    Everyone we interacted with in the company was friendly, attentive, and respectful, including the boss, Ganga, our guide, Hari, and the two porters, Sunil and Namaraj.

    Overall, we can highly highly recommend the company, the trek, and our guide, Hari! 10/10

  • ABC Personalised Trek

    Two of us embarked on a 9-day trekking adventure with ABC in April 2024. The journey was nothing short of excellent, largely due to our guide Hari Gurung and porter Ganesh Sapkota.

    Initially, we had planned to undertake the trek independently, but we couldn't be more pleased that we chose to go with a guide. Hari was nothing less than a legend: he swiftly tailored our itinerary to suit our physical capabilities and interests—focusing on immersive local culture experiences, longer walks, and fewer tourists wherever possible. His intuition was spot on, and he seemed to have a magical knack for securing the best rooms in lodges, even during peak times. Our porter, Ganesh, made a monumental effort, especially on the day we pushed ourselves to cover 30 km. He was modest, kind, and incredibly hardworking.

    Do yourself a favor and specifically request Hari if you're planning a trek with the Nepal Hiking Team. He might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you find that you click, you’re in for an unforgettable journey. After all, he's been mastering this for no less than 37 years.
