Well organised. We went through Kathmandu, Chitwan, Lumbini, and Pokhara. Just enough time allocated to each destination. Guided tours were mostly in the morning/afternoon and we were given free time to shop and explore afterwards. Restaurants that we were brought to were good though a little pricier than expected. The default hotels were beautiful (especially in Chitwan – Hotel Rainforest, and in Lumbini – Sakya Guest House) with great service. Our driver Jeevan had mad skills navigating potholes and rockslides.
Only regret was the rain obscuring our view of the Himalayas!

I traveled to many areas with my family, and to be honest, we had a terrific time in each of them. All of the employees, guides, and drivers were extremely pleasant and helpful. I especially adored Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha. I’ve never seen such a serene and beautiful area in my life. Thank you for your assistance, Team.

I am really very impressed by the calm and natural beauty that I got to experience in the Annapurna Trek. The routes of course had me miss my comfy bed at home. But, in the end it was all worth it. The guides were all well equipped and so friendly. They were more like a long known friends to me. I will surely pay another visit to Annapurna along with my friends through this company itself.
