Trip Feed Back: Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

Hi Mr. Babu and Arjun. Thanks for the great trip to Annapurna Base Camp- very well organized, with no hitches. Mr. Babu was at the airport to receive us and he was most helpful in ensuring we have a good trip. We were introduced to our guide Arjun Nepal who had worked in Malaysia before.

The trail took us through many different terrains – up and down rocky mountains, by streams of gushing waters, through farmlands and forested areas. We crossed many suspended steel bridges and scaled many hills. We had the opportunity to experience snow falls and hailstones at the Macchapuche Base Camp (3700m) and trekked in 3-4 inches of snow to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC, 4130m) the next morning. This was unexpected at this time (May 1 2012) of the year.

The trip had been made pleasant by our very helpful and able guide as well as porter (Bishnu). Arjun was most accommodating and spoke very good English and even the Malay language he picked up while working in Malaysia.

I would certainly recommend Adventure Great Himalaya Treks and Expedition. This is my second trip with the company. The last was the Everest Base Camp in 2010. They are reliable and the price is reasonable too !
