Devi  Baral was very flexible and did his best to change our trekking to Annapurna. It was a great choice! we had fantastic time with Kumar Khadka and strong porter Ram.


“Excellent service!!!!!”

16th Mar, 2022

On the trek: I had an amazing experience. I didn't have much free time, so I chose the mini trek. It is very short and easy, but I could see some beautiful views of the Annapurna range. I would recommend it for people with little trekking experience as an introductory "course" into Himalaya. The only downside of it is that leaves you wanting for more. I wish I had time for a longer trip. Hopefully, next time.On traveling solo:

I am a female traveling on my own. I was a bit concerned about safety, but those concerns never materialized. I also saw a few other women traveling alone with guides. Choose a reputable company such as Adventure Nepal Eco Treks, use common sense and you should be fine.

On Adventure Nepal Eco Treks:

Devi and Kumar were wonderful hosts. I arrived early in Kathmandu and Devi Baral organized a car and a guide for me to show me around the city at no extra charge. I really appreciated that opportunity as Kathmandu has some beautiful sights. I spent 3 full days trekking with Kumar and he was just awesome. He made me feel very comfortable and was just a fun companion. He attended to my every need and even took silly pictures of me at my request.

Definitely recommend Adventure Nepal Eco Treks and definitely will be a return customer myself!
