Annapurna Foothills Treks offers an amazing experience for everyone. Ngima Sherpa and his team takes care of you from arrival on the airport till your departure. We hiked the Pikey peak trail with family of 4. A basic fitness is necessary but the porters were extremely helpful (and strong). Our guide was very professional and attentive. We can look back on a wonderful trek with beautiful scenery (Mt Everest and other giants). On our next visit to Nepal we will book with Annapurna foothills Treks for sure again.
I spent 3 weeks with the Annapurna Foothills team climbing Mera Peak, Amphu Labtsa pass, and Island Peak. Such a unique and incredible experience! The management, guides and porters were so organized, friendly, and helpful. When our flight to Lukla was cancelled, they quickly pivoted by getting us a Jeep and re-routing the first few days of the trip. Throughout, they were very attentive, making sure that we were comfortable and well fed. The acclimatization schedule was well thought out, enabling two successful summits. However, this trek is not for the faint hearted! Definitely ensure that you are healthy, fit, and have trekking experience before attempting two 6000m peaks. Reaching the top was truly awe-inspiring! One of the best trips that I've ever done.I was really overwhelmed when picking a trekking company (there are so many options!), but I am SO glad that I chose Annapurna Foothills. They are a local company who do a good job supporting their staff. It was also really nice to have an all-inclusive experience--all travel, accomodation, food, climbing gear, etc. included in the price. I never had to worry about where I was going or what the plan was. They always took my opinion into account, but made me feel that I was well taken care of (especially as a women traveling alone).Thank you for a beautiful first experience in the Himalayas!
My partner and I booked the Mera Peak Climb in April this year. It was an amazing experience and we were well looked after. The days at lower altitude were a great warm up for what was ahead. Now I must admit due to altitude sickness I only made it as far as High Camp, but considering I had never even see snow fall, let alone try to summit a mountain before I was pretty impressed by my effort. We come from the driest state in the driest continent! The views were breathtaking and the trail was nowhere near as crowded as our previous treks in Everest and Annapurna. Would have given 5 stars had I made it to the summit. But hey there's always next time.
We climbed Lobuche East with Ngima & his team back in April 2015. The whole planning phase from back home was smooth & easy, Ngima was very responsive, informative and flexible with regards to our wishes and requirements. We trekked individually in Khumbu valley region and only met with our sherpa and cook in Lobuche East base camp. The whole climb took 3 days in total and we felt well looked after, taken care of and listened to at all times. Guys were amazing, safety conscious, adjusted to our needs and we succesfuly reached the summit as planned. Truly experience of a life time made possible also thanks to our (now) friends at Annapurna Foothills. If you want a unique experience with great proffesionals, look no further. Ngima will take care of all your needs.
Everybody thinks of Nepal as a country full of big mountains and a place to trek and climb, but Ngima showed us that it´s much more than that.Thanks to him we discovered the Chitwan jungle, where we could see elephants, rhinos, crocodiles, buffalos and lots of birds. Also the beautiful lake of Pokhara, surrounded by the Annapurnas, and one of the best places to meditate and relax. Ancestral cities like Bhaktapur, Patan or Gorkha, full of temples and history, where you can breath "the real Nepal". And one of the most unique trails in the world, the Siddharta Road, going through mountains, gorges, villages and the most astounding views ever. Ngima and his crew are definitely the BEST guides we´ve ever met in any country, so we highly recommend to organise your trip to Nepal with them. All the best and Namasté ! Gerardo & Rubén
This is my first time travelling with Annapurna Foothills Treks & Expedition. We were in a group of 13 trekkers and touched by warm welcome from Ngima and Tenzin with a garland of marigold and their hospitality during the stay in Kathmandu.On the trek, we were well looked after by our Sherpa guides Tashi, Nigma, Mingmar and Dawa in terms of guidance of trail/safety, accommodation and food drink. They were reliable and super friendly, not to mention meticulous. Remembered the night in Dingboche was so cold and been served with a warm bowl of fruit cocktail which really warmed up my heart.Thank you to the great team at Annapurna Foothills Treks & Expedition for a great experience.
We did Annapurna circuit and it was one of the best experiences of our lifes.We felt really good in our treks and we had the best guide/porter by our side. Pasang Sherpa was take care of us every time, showing all about the nature and also about Nepal, we felt Nepali culture and we could see things and discovered places we couldn’t imagine. We are so thankful to Pasang and Ngma because they help us since our first day in Nepal, they did our journey incredible.Also they managed us very good accommodations in our trek.We reached Thorong La Pass, we really recommend this trek!Marcos & Tania
We just finished a fabulous week-long trek to Pikey Peak and other wonderful sights in east central Nepal. This was our second trek with Annapurna Foothills...they are wonderful! Ngima worked with us to ensure that the trek met all of our needs, and everything was taken care of from the moment we arrived at the airport until we departed Nepal. Our guide, Dawa, and our porter, Pasang, were both friendly and as helpful as could be. This trek is in Sherpa country, and is as much about local culture as it is stunning views and good hiking.
