Further, we stop at many places like Ghorepani poon hill- sunrise view, Tadapani, Deurali, our destination Annapurna base camp, Jhinu Dada and more. ABC trek gives the beautiful scenic view of the Himalayas, rhododendron, pine, oak and bamboo trees, rivers (like Chomrong River and Modi River), cattle, waterfalls and many more. Journey/route to Annapurna Base Camp is more beautiful than the destination which provides a spectacular sunrise view from Ghorepani Poon Hill.
Likewise, Annapurna Base Camp Trek can also be started with a flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara. Reaching Pokhara will be followed by the same day’s drive to Nayapul and trek to Tikhedhunga.

I was just thinking to make my plan for my vacation and I thought for trekking. I was totally unknown about trek. while I was spending time in Internet, I found Nepal trek adventure. I sent an enquiry and I was replied by their team. I had many more question so I started to ask my questions to them, they replied all my questions without being irritated. I booked Annapurna Base Camp Trek with them. Binod (The managing director) and Shiva (guide) had come to airport to receive me and they dropped me to the respective Hotel. we made discussion about the day after trek and we started our Annapurna Base Camp Trek in next morning. I was fully satisfied with my decision of choosing this agency. Thankyou Nepal Trek Adventures’ team for this wonderful trek. Highly recommended.
When the students of our college thought about trek I couldn't decide the agency for trekking which would be fun as well as affordable. Some other agency were too unsatisfactory and some were with unaffordable price rate. Then we found Nepal trek adventure. The price was so affordable and the trek members(guides) were so comfortable and so helpful that I'm glad that I chose this agency for my trek to Annapurna Base Camp. They satisfied our budget friendly trek with their friendly supportive team. Thankyou Binod, the managing director and the team of NTA for making our trek memorable.
It was difficult to choose between all the many agencies that are offering treks to Nepal. I decided to trust a young and dynamic company runned by Binod! Everyhing was perfect, it was the best experience of my life. Thank you again for organizing what will remind an unforgettable memory!
Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp was one of the most incredible things we have ever done, and we couldn't have asked for a better guide than Dhana. We wanted to go with a company, rather than just hiring a guide, to have additional security in case anything happened or went wrong. Binod went out of his way to make sure we had a fantastic experience and was in contact (via mobile) throughout the 9 days of trekking to ensure that everything was running smoothly. Dhana, our guide, was awesome in every possible way (spoke perfect English, very organised and attentive, fantastic guide, and great at card games!) and we will definitely be back to trek everest base camp with him! We highly recommend this company if you want to do a trek in Nepal.
My gf and i completed the Annapurna Base Camp trek with Nepal Trek Expedition in late 2013 and it was one of the best decisions we've made. It's a small family-run government registered company which I think definitely works in their favour - it made for a much more relaxed and personal experience. We visited several other companies in Thamel looking for the right tour operator (there is literally hundreds!) but the clincher was the helpful and genuine attitude of manager Binod in the office, who provided excellent service and a competitive price. On the trek we had a fantastic guide Dilli (the initial founder of the company) who's years of experience was clear throughout the trek, and porter Raj. Both were always happy and full of energy and made the trip certainly a highlight and unforgettable experience in Asia. They also provided a great deal of information during in the trekking on the history and culture of Nepal. I would highly recommend this company and while we started as clients it felt like we left as friends. Cheers NTA! Melbourne, Australia
I submitted this review whilst travelling but for some reason Nepal Trek adventures disappeared off TripAdvisor completely? It is so sad that this has happened so I'm re-posting. We chose Nepal Trek Adventures and Expeditions after three days in Kathmandu researching for a tour to Annapurna base camp. We stumbled upon Binod's office and decided to go with our gut instinct. Binod didn't pressure us, he was very charismatic and had a very competitive price. For 12 days you couldn't ask for more. These people are the happiest, funniest, most genuine hard working people we have come across. Our guide Dilly and our porter Raj were amazing. We felt so lucky to have them as a lot of other guides were always seeking them for their knowledge and experience. Even other Trekkers we met along the way from other groups sought them for any questions and they were always the life of the party. Dilli assessed our fitness levels and knew when we could push on further or need to rest, and all the tricks for remedies and where to get the best deals. He was informative and gave us a great insight into local culture and history along the way. When we decided to stay another night in Pokhara he gave us a great recommendation (sacred valley inn) and when we returned to KTM they organized a lift to the airport and gave us Tibetan good luck scarfs for safe traveling. <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
My friend and I rocked up in Kathmandu with a plan of doing a budget-friendly trek to the Annapurna Base Camp. We originally wanted to do the 9-day ABC trek on our own, without the help of any agency because we thought it might be too expensive. Being women backpackers, we wanted to get a cheap and adventure-filled trekking package, but wanted ease of travel and didn't want to sacrifice our safety. We were glad we came across Nepal Trek Adventure & Expedition while shopping around the Thamel area. Binod was very professional and helpful in getting permits and a porter-cum-guide. We were able to plan for the trek within the time period that we wanted, despite the fact that we arranged it a day before our planned departure. Our bus tickets, trekking passes and accommodations were all arranged by Binod without any hassle. Our sherpa guide was brilliant too and we were quite thankful that we got one! My friend had an accident on our 2nd to the last day of the trek back, where she sprained her ankle. But thanks to our porter-guide, Norbu, she made it! He assisted in getting accommodations for us during the very busy season when people flocked to teahouses to do the trek. Of course the ABC Trek is picturesque and quite an experience itself---it is one of the best travel adventures I've done. But I'm quite glad Nepal Trek Adventure & Expedition was there to make everything happen for us for a budget-friendly price. As Binod said, "women need an intelligent man that can make things happen!" I would recommend Binod and his team to others. In fact, I'm already planning for our Everest Base Camp trek next year!
20Great trip! Thanks very much to Suda who made the journey to ABC possible for me, I would not have known the way without him! Had some great views from ABC despite only being clear for 20minutes, it was well worth the hike! Take some warm clothes with you. I was freezing at the base camp! All the best to Binod and Suda thanks again! <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--> <!--[endif]-->
What a trek! It was so beautiful I really really enjoyed every single step which I took (and there were a few) However, not only the landscape was perfect its been worthy. My guide Bikha who made this trip unforgettable. He did a wonderful joy! Thank you so much! especially for not just being the guide for being a real brother.
This is a review of our homestay in Dhading Sankesh. Our guide was Amrit. We could not be more pleased with our stay. We stayed in the home of the father and mother of Binod. We were looking for something authentic after hiking for 6 days around Annapurna. We were tired of all the tourists and looking to be immersed in the culture. This trip delivered!!! It was definitely not for luxury but if you are looking for real things this is it. Our guide was wonderful and very protective. He fed us very well and we always felt safe. We felt so lucky to have stumbled upon this trip. Amrit grew up a few minutes from the homestay and was very knowledgeable. We went to 2 schools, plowed fields hiking, saw many animals and had a wonderful time. There was a perfect stay. The villagers and children were wonderful thanks!!
You can go to the Annapurna Base Camp trek whenever you like over the year. However, the monsoon is not a decent time for ABC trek.
