I recently returned from trekking to Annapurna base camp. A few months ago I decided to take a solo trip to Nepal and walk in the incredible Himalayas. I was looking for a trekking company and after carefully reading reviews from various agencies. I chose Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd. They have great reviews from past clients and are also a local company. I organize my trip through this agency. I am very grateful to the entire team, especially my wonderful guide Roshan, who was not only an experienced guide with excellent communication, but also a friendly, fun and positive attitude, and my porter Suvash, who made this trip something special and unforgettable. He was always available to answer any questions I had. During my trip to Annapurna Base Camp, I had the best trekking experience and learned a lot about the culture, tradition, lifestyle, Annapurna Sanctuary and that made the hike even more enjoyable. When I got to the tea house where I lived, I always had a comfortable room. The company has a very good relationship with the owners of the tea houses and this is very important, especially if you are approaching the base camp and there is not enough space for everyone. Roshan went out of his way to ensure my well-being, to make sure I ate well and kept hydrated. I'm already thinking about my next trip to Everest base camp and I wish to organize it with them again.
