Annapurna Base Camp

We did the Annapurna Base Camp trek with Luxury Holiday Treks last October.We went together with Keshab as the guide with Nirajan as the porter and it was a memorable experience.Despite sounding very challenging, ABC was actually quite a relaxing trek. We did it in around 12 days and kept it very relaxing and casual.

Best trek I have been on

Keshab has great knowledge and will ensure your experience is one to remember. We did the abc trail I highly recommend it.

Annapurna 2016

This trek was great! I did the ABC trek with a group of friends over 9 days. Keshab took care of every detail which was no easy task considering almost every member of our group had different travel requirements.

Annapurna Base Camp - Trip of a Lifetime

I tackled the Annapurna Base Camp Trek along with five friends (all 27-28 years of age) and my father (64 years of age) in April 2016. Without a doubt this was the trip of a lifetime, being full of spectacular views, beautiful scenery and challenging ascents.Our route began in Naya Pul, making our way through Ghorepani before ascending Annapurna Base Camp. Upon setting off we were immediately in 'real Nepal', passing through beautiful mountainous scenery and traditional Nepalese villages. The paved path retained a steady incline until we reached Ghorepani, where the views were simply breath taking. Throughout the rest of the trek the views remained incredible. The route also passed through lush rhododendron forests and water springs, which added to the mystique and appreciation of the mountainous region. The path became noticeably more challenging after Chomrong as the route went up the Annapurna valley. The track became less paved and the steps noticeably steeper - to the concern of my father who had difficulty on the downhill steps due to his hip replacement surgery one year before. If in a good state of health however the route will provide a fun challenge.Our guides Keshab and Raja were wonderful. They were both warm and welcoming and concerned for our needs throughout the whole trip. They also displayed professionalism and in-depth knowledge of the region, as well as speaking perfect English. Keshab often checked on everyone, making sure no one was struggling, ensuring we stopped regularly for food and drink breaks. At each break he endeavoured to swiftly collect our orders, recommend dishes and take payment for the bill. He also set realistic distances between the tea houses that we would be sleeping at each night, selecting the best ones available. At the conclusion of each day he would ensure that we were all comfortable at the tea house and socialised with us in the evenings, which was much appreciated by the group. Raja was particularly helpful with my father, taking his bag for him during long uphill sections and walking at the same pace as him. He also happily volunteered to take my father a gentler route when he decided not to ascend Annapurna Base Camp.Thank you for making this a trip of a lifetime.
