    A lifetime memorable experience in Annapurna Mountain

    My friends and I used Nepal Tour & trekking service agency for our trek to Annapurna Base Camp. It was a great experience! Ganesh, the company manager, was responsive, planning professional, and fluent in English.

    We enjoy every moment and we will always remember the special connection with the amazing culture, mountains and people in Nepal. The short trek to Annurpurna Base Camp remains a valuable memory and experience that should never be forgotten. The view is breathtaking and every drop of sweat is worth it.

    Our guide was great with a great sense of humor and was extremely competent on site. He always tries to make sure we have enough to eat and drink and takes care of where we sleep. I can only recommend this company!
