by Simon Casey, London on Alpine Adventure Gorkha Treks

After deciding to do the Annapurna Base Camp Trekking, I did a lot of research about trekking companies in Nepal. Finally, I prefer Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks and decided to go with them because they were based locally in Nepal. I was in contact with Ramhari, who was so friendly and informative about the trip itinerary. The whole trekking experience was so exciting, and I promise to go to Annapurna again. Thanks
