Annapurna Circuit with Gautam


Using this trekking agency was extremely pain-free and cost effective. Upon contacting them, visiting the office and going trekking I was welcomed with professionalism and warmness. I went on the Annapurna Circuit with Gautam, who was a porter/guide. He was extremely supportive and knowledgeable about the trek. He made sure at each teahouse I got the best deal, the best bedroom and dinner/breakfast when I wanted it. Throughout the trek I was able to choose the pace I wanted to walk at, and when I came into difficulties with heights or difficult walking paths Gautam was there to guide me through and lend a supportive arm. As a single female trekking, Gautam was extremely respectful and I hope to trek with him again in the future. Thanks so much!

Amazing Annapurna Circuit Trek with the company


We were a group of 4 here in Nepal for the first time. We are trying to do the Annapurna Circuit trek and I contacted Rajesh. He was very helpful and prompt with the responses and very amenable to our requests. The guide, Kedar, and two porters, Kumar and Reesom, were an amazing team. They really took great care of us during the entire trip. Kedar was funny and friendly and we became very close to him and the rest of the team. We make sure we have our food first before they eat themselves, they make sure we have everything we need, taking care to check the rooms before we leave to make sure we didn't leave anything behind. We played cards while resting in the hotels. When one member of our group was having trouble going up to Thorong La, Kumar was very very helpful by carrying his pack for him, walking closely behind him to make sure he is okay. When we had extra days because we were ahead of schedule, Kedar was very good and flexible and brought us to places that were not in our original itinerary. We were able to check out Ghorepani and Poon Hill because of this. We really enjoyed their company and their attention for our well being. I would highly recommend Kedar our guide, Kumar and Reesom our porters, and the company run by Rajesh.

“Excellent organization of the Annapurna Circuit Trek”

“Excellent organization of the Annapurna Circuit Trek”


We were in Nepal to do the Annapurna Circuit Trek. They arranged the following: 1. Airport pick-up & drop 2. Stay at Kathmandu & Pokhara (3 nights) 3. Guide-cum-Porter (Ganesh) for the trek 4. Hiring of required equipment like sleeping bags 5. Stay & food at Tea Houses during the trek (12 nights) The arrangements were done at appropriate places within the constraints. Ganesh is an honest & sincere person, who showed a lot of flexibility and took care of our safety & comfort. He knew the route very well and told us a number of interesting details. His communication is good in Hindi, needs to improve in English. Overall it was an experience we will cherish. We look forward to our next trek in Nepal with the same team.
