The guide selected convenient places for overnight stays in guest houses, the porter was chosen correctly, throughout the route we received good advice and help from our guide. On the route, due to the circumstances, we had to make changes to the schedule and our guide quickly managed to make changes so that all participants were comfortable to continue moving.

I recently went on the Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Travers Nepal and it was truly an unforgettable experience. The trek itself is stunning, with breathtaking views of the Annapurna mountain range at every turn. The team at Travers Nepal made the experience even better, with their exceptional organization and attention to detail. From the moment we arrived in Kathmandu, Travers Nepal took care of everything. They arranged for airport transfers, helped us obtain necessary permits, and provided a detailed briefing about the trek. Our guide, Raj, was knowledgeable and friendly, and made sure we were safe and comfortable throughout the trek. The trek itself was challenging but incredibly rewarding. We passed through beautiful villages and lush forests, and the views of the mountains were simply spectacular. The highlight, of course, was reaching Annapurna Base Camp itself. It was an awe-inspiring moment and one that I will never forget. The accommodation provided by Travers Nepal was also excellent. We stayed in comfortable lodges with hot showers and delicious meals. Our porter, who carried our bags, was also very friendly and professional. Overall, I highly recommend the Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Travers Nepal. The scenery is stunning, the trek is challenging but manageable, and the team at Travers Nepal goes above and beyond to make sure your experience is unforgettable.
