Reviews

Short tour Annapurna with great people

We did a 7 day itinerary with of Annapurna short trek with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition and it exceeded all of our expectations. From the moment we arrived in Nepal, we were taken care of. Our drivers were always on time and the trekking guides were genuine and knowledgeable. We did 4 days tea house trekking and remaining 3 days spend in Kathmandu and Pokhara. Ouch im sorry, I forget the name of our brave guide SHERPA, was a fabulous trek guide and his passion for the Nepalese culture and history is highly appreciated. We loved the food and all of the porters. I will never forget their home and the memories we made there. We cannot say sufficient time there due to our short length of holiday, we will surely visit the Himalayan country Nepal again and again.

Annapurna short tour

I spent one week in Nepal since my short holiday duration. The highlight of my trip was a trek organized by Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition and guided by Lapuri Sherpa in the Annapurna short trip. They made all of the arrangements, booked great hotels and handled transportation in Kathmandu and to and from the trek. The trek itself was amazing, and one of the best experiences of my life. I am hoping to return to Nepal in 2014 and will definitely book my trip with this Nepal Guide Treks Team.
