Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expedition is owned and operated by a Sherpa who has many years of experience in the trekking industry, and his well trained Sherpa staff.
Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expedition provide more services for less cost because we are a Nepal-based company with few overhead costs.
All our staff at Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expeditions are from the Sherpa tribe who are native to the Himalayan region, experienced in the field, and passionate about their homeland. What most people dont know about Nepal is that there are many castes, tribes and ethnic groups. Sure, we are all Nepalese, but for generations, life and work has been divided along the lines of caste, tribe and ethnicity. For several generations the Sherpa community has had no other livelihood than the mountaineering industry, and they have gained a reputation for honesty and hard work in the field. Although the industry has been infiltrated by other Nepalese, trekking and mountaineering remains one of the few livelihood options available to the Sherpa people. In other words, other castes have easily moved into the industry, but the Sherpa people still have few opportunities outside.
The Sherpa native to the region are also the most familiar with the local environment and culture, and therefore the best qualified to share the beauty of their land with our valued clients.
Annapurna Foothills Treks take pride in offering competitive rates, however, we make no effort to compete with companies who are offering unreasonably low rates and compromising standards which both you and the trekking support staff require to make the trek an enjoyable experience. We refuse to offer cheap packages which involve unexpected expenses for you later.
Here are some important points which explain you why you should choose Annapurna Foothill Treks.

My wife and I trekked the Manaslu Circuit with Ngima's Annapurna Foothills in late 2014. The trip, from start to finish, was nothing short of spectacular. Ngima and Tenzin were the warmest, most gracious hosts, and showed single-minded devotion to ensuring the trip's success, safety, and joyfulness.Merrick Kingston
