  • Amazing Annapurna Sanctuary Trek with NTA Team

    Amazing Annapurna Sanctuary Trek with NTA Team


    I along with my classmates of around 18 people went Nepal for our summer vacation. We had an actual plan of visiting Everest Base Camp but that could not get success because of some reasons. So, we caught the trip to Annapurna region of Nepal via Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. We observed lots of mountains, green hills, human settlements and a lot of other attractions. The trekking view was so beautiful and mesmerizing. Apart from that, talking about the company and its organization, it was awesome. The humble nature of Binod (the owner of the company), Krishna (our funny cum obliging guide), and overall assistance of the whole company staffs. Salute to you guys for your so much hard works and dedication. Thumbs up. See you again!

    A must for the bucket list!


    Sometimes intuition, or gut instinct, leads you to make the right decision.  I met marketing staff’s of NTA in the streets of Thamel and like many others, he gave me a business card and invited my husband and I to visit their office and discuss our travel plans. There are so many touts on the streets of Thamel but NTA’s staff open friendly manner won the day. After entering to the office we found Manager is thorough, his services reliable and very affordable and his staff and team of guides and porters are friendly, trustworthy and committed to caring for their clients. They skillfully organizes all the details for a successful trip - pickups, buses, hotels, tour activities, a checklist for trekking requirements and, of course, wonderful treks. His team organized a everything for us like- Chitwan National Park, Pokhara,The Annapurna Base Camp Trek and the Helambu trek.  What an experience! Chitwan was amazing and our only regret was that we did not allow more time there after our organised activities to relax and explore the local villages more. Yes we were tired at the end of both treks but every aching muscle and sore toe was well worth it. We trekked through some of the most spectacular scenery that either of us has ever seen. The climax was, of course, Annapurna Sanctuary. It is a very special place and definitely a fitting home for the gods!  The old adage holds out – no pain, no gain. We felt blessed! Trekking is a great way to get a real feel of Nepal, its countryside, its villages, its people and its magnificent mountains. I am so glad that we have had the opportunity and time to have had these wonderful experiences. A big thanks you, once again, to Manager, to our wonderful guide and friend on both treks, and our incredible porters. Don't leave it to intuition of gut instinct like I had to, but take my advice and put your trust in the hands of Manager and the wonderful staff at NTA.
