As Mountainous region are the coldest region where the temperature goes down to minus as the day temperatures will be very cool and night temperatures will drop well below freezing.
I had booked an Annapurna circuit trek with Nepal trek adventures which is one of the best trekking agency of Nepal. The facilities, services, and guidance provided by them were more than awesome. Binod Sapkota, the managing director himself was our guide who is so experienced, friendly and highly informative about Annapurna region. I got to know about all the mountains, their names, and history which also increased my knowledge level. along with the gain of knowledge, I got to view the beautiful villages, massifs, flora fauna, cultures and traditions, the lifestyle of people, and among all, I got a new friend in Nepal, My. Sapkota. Highly recommend for Binod and his team.
I had heard that Once Nepal is not enough I agreed with this saying after I visited Nepal. I had had one of the best treks of Nepal that is Annapurna circuit trek with Nepal trek adventures. The experienced and friendly team of NTA along with the view of Annapurna, Machhapuchre mountain (Fishtail mountain) made an invaluable memory of my life. The time spent in Nepal was just WOW and I'll never forget my journey there. Thank you all for contributing your time and experience for me making my life worthy and beautiful.
I planned to hike the Annapurna Circuit in March 2015 and booked the tour by NTA. Unfortunately I had to return after 3 days due to very bad weather conditions. Binod and his team were very flexible and they took time to make me different suggestions for alternatives. In a case of emergency of a friend on the Poonhilltrek Binod & his team reacted fast und straightforward to help. Binod, Shiva, Raj, Pawan... everyone was kind and helpful. And every appointment was perfect in time.
We recently used Nepal Trek Adventures to do the Annapurna Circuit in October, and we can't say enough good things about the company and the staff. The tour company owner, Binod, was extremely organized and responsive to our concerns. He set us up with everything we needed, from a great guide and porter to airport transportation to meals and city activities and shopping for our trek. Binod arranges for his guests to stay in his own hotel, which is one of the nicest hotels in Kathmandu. Our guide Deepak was excellent. He was attentive to our needs and had no problem slowing down the pace when we were tired. He was friendly, easy to talk to, and extremely kind. He also knew all the shortcuts and which areas were dangerous. Our porter Raju was also wonderful and helped to arrange our accommodations and meals at guesthouses. We happened to be on the trek when the October 2014 blizzard hit the Annapurna region, so we eventually had to turn back. Binod, Deepak and Raju were so helpful during this time in contacting our families to let them know we were okay, as our cell phones had no signal. They even arranged to buy me a birthday cake from a local bakery the night of my birthday. Even though we could not complete the circuit, we had an excellent experience with Nepal Trek Adventures. We felt really comfortable and safe the whole time, and we would recommend NTA with enthusiasm!
I was myself doing trekking in the Annapurna circuit, I was carrying a big rucksack it was heavy but I missed my porter and I was keep going myself. Then Binod appeared with a couple, his customers actually, really nice couple, and they offered me some help with my backpack. I hesitated at first but Binop went on about and eventually we swaped our bags, his rucksack was smaller than mine. Then he told me to leave some of my stuff in the next hotel in the mountains at the beginning of the track of Annapurna base camp, and that´s what we did. We went together for 3 days till the base camp and he didn´t want any money for his service he just did it as a friend or as a support who knows, but the real thing is that I wasn´t alone any more I enjoyed their company a lot and he was so attentive to our needs, he also did the journeys incredibly pleasant because he knows the treck very well, he tell us loads of histories that happened in the Himalayas, and he has a vast experience of what he is doing. I can truly say that he does his job with pleasure and knowledge even with non-profit making. Thanks again for your kindness, your goodwill and to made us an unforgettable journey. He is a total professional and I would recommend to everyone who wants to go to Nepal to contact him because he will organized the perfect holidays for you.
We did Annapurna Circuit in 2012 and had fantastic experience. From the moment I first contacted Binod, I felt confident our trek would be handled professionally and with care to all details. Binod was personally involved from organizing trip, meeting us in airport, checking on us during acclimatization to high altitude in Manang, he was in contact with our guide Suresh on daily basis. Suresh and porter Rajo were a pleasure to be around, always in high spirits, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to all our needs. Nepal is a country of amazing scenery and wonderful people!!!!Thank you so much, for magical experience in Nepal!!! We will be back this year for 3 Pass Trek. Namaste! Irina.
