This was our first time (females, mid-20s) in Nepal and with trekking in general so we felt very overwhelmed. I mean, with travel agencies everywhere you look it’s hard not to be! Luckily, Nepal Mountain Trekker’s office was right beside our place of accommodation, Hotel Horizon. We were on a budget so we decided to only hire a guide for peace of mind. We got SO much more out of it then we could have imagined! The manager – Mr. Ramesh Dhakal, was very helpful in accommodating our needs and budget. He answered every concern we had and referred us to our guide, Min Bahadur. Min really made our experience during the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek memorable! There was no language barrier and Min always made sure we were safe and comfortable (i.e. checking our rental equipment, helping us bargain, making sure we ate well, motivating us, the list goes on). We cannot express how fortunate we felt! I would recommend this service which we found to be very honest and worthwhile and our guide for anyone planning to visit Nepal! Take care!
