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.
