August 28, 2019

I completed the Annapurna base camp short trek with Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks & Expedition Pvt. Ltd in March. I found their management was excellent, and they provided helpful information while we asked about the trip. The company offers the best accommodation in Kathmandu and Pokhara along the Annapurna trek.
Our guide, Ram, was kind, helpful, and friendly, and he always made fun along the trekking trail. He has immeasurable knowledge and experience of the Himalayan region trek in Nepal. So, we finished our holiday with more adventure and a memorable lifetime journey. Thank you very much.
