About Trip:

The Annapurna Base Camp trek - one of the most popular treks on earth – is located in the mid-western part of Nepal. The trek is an amazing walk through diverse landscapes and cultures and brings you close to the base of some of the tallest mountains known on earth such as Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Machapuchhre (known as Fish Tail, 6993 m) and Hiunchuli (6441 m). The Annapurna mountain range is highly respected and admired among trekkers worldwide for its unique beauty as the trek takes you through lush rhododendron forests, countless waterfalls, terraced rice paddies and high-altitude landscapes offering numerous viewpoints of the mountain peaks. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a popular choice for a diversity of outdoor enthusiasts - from a solo female traveler, a bunch of adventurous friends, to groups hiking with children.

Having all necessary trekking permits on hand, our Annapurna Base Camp Trek sets off from the well-known ‘lake city’ of Pokhara, from where a 1,5-hour drive will bring us to our starting point of Nayapul. We will hike through lush jungle forests encountering numerous waterfalls of all sizes on our way as well as local Gurung villages and communities. From Ghorepani we will hike to one of the most popular sunrise viewpoints in the world Poon Hill, offering a panoramic mountain view of the mighty Himalayan mountain range. Gradually we will walk our way to the Annapurna Base Camp (4130 m) where we will feel the humbling and unique experience of being totally surrounded by some of the most spectacular mountains in the world. Our way back will offer a completely different experience than on our way up and we will have the opportunity to enjoy ourselves in the natural hot springs of Jhinudanda. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is friendly for travelers of all ages, beginners as well as experienced trekkers and for everyone who appreciates unforgettable life experiences in the magnificent nature and cultures of Nepal.

Amazing trip with an amazing guide

Rating:  

Two friends and I were doing the Annapurna Base Camp trek and from home we were recommended to trek with Rabin. We talked a lot with Rabin over e-mail before we actually went to Nepal, and he was more than willing to answer all of our questions and to give us the information that we needed. When we arrived in Kathmandu airport Rabin were there to pick us up, and he took us to a nice hotel in the city. During the trek Rabin has been extremely helpful whenever we needed something or asked for something, patient, funny, and good at telling us about the trek we were doing. I don't think that we could ever have wished for a better guide than Rabin, and we miss him now that we don't see him every day. Later on we did a shorter (3 days) trek in the Kathmandu Valley with another guide named Bhoj. Bhoj was also a very talented guide, and like Rabin, very good at English. Bhoj knew a lot about all the nature that we walked past, and he was good at making us try some locale wine and fruits while doing the trek. All in all we had an amazing experience with Nepal Trekking Experts, and I would definitely recommend them!

Wonderfull trek with an awesome guide!

Rating:  

I've been on Annapurna Base Camp trek with two of my friends from Denmark. We booked our trip by Nepal Trekking Experts, and had Rabin as guide - it was nothing less than amazing. Rabin knows ALOT of everything, and he can always tell something about the nature or generel Nepal facts. He is never intrusive, and stays 'in the background' when we are eating and relaxing. But if we want him to join the meal or a game of cards, he's always ready and is very pleasant to be in company with. He can also teach you a very funny cardgame! We played it the rest of our trip. I will give the very best recommendations to the company and especially to Rabin - and I will definitely book my next trip through Nepal Trekking Experts!!

Excellent local guides with a lot of experience

Rating:  

My husband & my sister who lives in France used Raj's expertise to plan an amazing trip in the Annapurna region. We did a first trek to Annapurna Base Camp and then we went up to Muktinath-Jomsom on the Annapurna Circuit. Our guide Sudarson & our porters were exceptional: they know the tea houses with the best food and best views. Thank you for taking good care of us. Hoping to go back to Nepal sometime soon...
