Trekking in Nepal? Look no further!
This is my second time travelling with Annapurna Foothills Treks.
The first time was in 2014, when I climbed Mera and Island Peaks with them and I had a superb time and experience. In fact, they were so good that when it was time to bring a larger group to Nepal for their first experience, the choice was obvious.
I contacted Ngima again to organise a trek to Everest Base Camp. As expected, communication with Ngima was easy. He was very responsive and always willing to discuss details and options to ensure that the trip is well organised for the group.
In typical Nepali hospitality, we were met at the airport with a garland of marigold. The hotel choice in Kathmandu was splendid, being both comfortable and convenient.
For the trek specifically, it was clear that the team of guides were there to ensure that the team was safe and well looked after. Tashi, Ngima, Mingmar and Dawa were an excellent team. They provided guidance on the trail, an extra pair of hands when team members got tired, organised the rooms when we arrived at our next village and always having a cheerful smile making it them great company on the trails.
No trek is complete without minor hiccups and setbacks, but Tashi and his team managed these with professionalism and did their best considering the circumstances.
We were a group of 13 trekkers. Such a big group did present logistical challenges but it was with their support that all 13 trekkers successfully achieved their goal of reaching Everest Base Camp.
Thank you to the fantastic team at Annapurna Foothills Treks. From Ngima and his wife, and the trekking guide team of Tashi, Ngima, Mingmar and Dawa. My next trip and trek in Nepal will definitely be by them.
