pike peak trekking with Ngima N Sherpa
We are a group of 4 friends on a recent trip to Pike Peak.The trail is fairly new and therefore less travelled. It was one of our most enjoyable treks to Nepal although we have been there for other treks before. It is very scenic with many majestic snow-capped mountains and verdant valleys within sight. The terrain is challenging although altitude is just above 4000 metres high. Most teahouse amenities are very basic as this is a fairly new route just starting to welcome guests. We were guided by Annapurna Foothills Treks & Expedition Pvt Ltd, a reliable and established company under Ngima. Service of its experienced guides and porters were good and we will not hesitate to recommend them.Andrew,Hannah,Low and MaySingapore
Mera Peak Expedition - 20 Days
Upon arrival at the airport in Kathmandu we had a warm welcome with Ngima, the director of the company. He is very committed with his customers.Everything was well organized and we had never any troubles. Also the guides and porter were great people, always prepared to help us. During the trek we were one team with no complains.For me it was the second time I've chosen to go with Annapurna Foothills and I'm very happy with it.At the end we had a cosy dinner at Ngima's home.Hope to be back in a few years.
Everest base Camp/ Kala Pattar & Island Peak
I would like to thank you very much for organizing and administrating such an unforgetable tour I had in October 2013. I felt taken care in a very professional manner during the entire tour.Although having enjoyed the whole tour with EBC and Khala Patar, of course Island Peak summit was definitively the highlight.Special thanks to Ang Babu and Durthi and of course to my climbing guide. They were reliable and had a good knowledge about their respective functions.I do not hesitate to recommend Annapurna Treks Expedition and of course would be willing to give direct response if requested.I will send you the fotos in the next couple of days.
Amazing pikey peak trail
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.
Mera + Island: Incredible Experience !!
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!
Hard work but worth it !!
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.
Lobuche East Climbing
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.
NEPAL: BEYOND THE HIMALAYAS
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
