    Linda4th January, 2019

    I booked on the Short Annapurna Base Camp Trek from Nepal Trekking in Himalayas. The views and scenery on the trek are breathtaking and the villages and trails you walk through are amazing. Our Guide Bishal was extremely helpful, positive and supportive throughout the trek, answering as many questions as he could and always making sure we had everything we needed.The trip was expertly organized and we were looked after really well. Nepal Trekking in Himalayan is a reliable company and great value for money We have had a wonderful trek and would definitely recommend Nepal Trekking in Himalayan as a reliable company to trek with.
