An excellent trek organized by Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks and had a fantastic time. This trekking company provides the best hotels and rooms while arriving at Kathmandu Nepal. They provided outstanding service with the most adventurous journey to the Annapurna base camp trek. The trek itself challenging, but I thought it would be worthwhile to take part. We went to Annapurna base camp and enjoyed the thrilling views of sunrise and sunset on top of Himalayan range from different places. Every day brings a rewarding landscape, fantastic landscape, green hills, forest, waterfalls, river, paddy fields, rocky terrain, and mountains with isolated villages. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking adventurous tour in Nepal. Thanks for your kind support!!!

My wife and I decided to book the Annapurna base camp trek on our recent holiday in October. At first, we were not sure we could make a trip, but after consulting with this team, we are assured about the trip.
Annapurna base camp trek is the famous trekking region closer to the beautiful city Pokhara. During the trek, you enjoy the diverse landscape with a naturally decorated trekking trail with mesmerizing views of the Annapurna mountain range. We are also experiencing the natural hot spring at Jhinu Danda.
Our friendly trekking guide provides all the details about the trekking region. And he always takes care while walking the challenging part of the trek. He already informed about the altitude trek problem, altitude sickness, and many more consequences during the trek. Our porters also friendly and took us carefully and walk together with to trek. We immensely enjoy the Annapurna Base camp trek with Adventure Alpine Gorkha team was an experience of a lifetime journey. I would highly recommend anyone planning to trip In Nepal.

We made the wonderful Annapurna base camp tour with our two guides Ramhari and Binaya. The trip was wonderful organized. From picking us up at the airport to the daily fruit ration. We could change the program on the way since we were a fast group. The accommodations were very good and we had almost everywhere a warm shower. I can recommed Ramhari and Binaya very much. They were a good company and always happy to play some "Uno"-card game. Keep going the good work. Thanks.
