Trip reviews

amazing experience


Again (this is my second trip with Alpine Asian Trek & Expeditions). This time, i went to Annapurna Base Camp for 14 days. I had really amazing experience with them. Chuda san really taking care of me, and i enjoyed the flexibility in my trip. Chuda san is a great guide, he knows if the weather will change, he knows the snow will comes earlier, so we have to make some preparation and decided to overnight at MBC instead of deurali. The communication was great and i was lucky to meet local people and other inspiring people on the track, also Chuda san can explain very well about Nepal culture and about the country as well,, i really enjoyed trekking with him.

While in Kathmandu,,, Pradip is really really a good friend,, i was well taken care of, also i learnt Nepali language from him,, now i can say Tapailai kasto cha? Malai sancha cha, ani hajurlai, ramro,voli vetaula, k cha khabar? thikai cha, and so on =)
I'd love to take Pradip as my brother instead of my guide tho

The highlight of the trip was staying a night at Shekhar's house, and had a breakfast together with his family... that was incredible feeling, you are thousands miles away from your home, separate with your family for 2 weeks, and there's a family inviting you to spend the day with them in Nepal.

Thank you Alpine Asian Treks for making my trip really special.. will be back again soon!
Maro yatra ramro vayo, Chadai vetaula!!

“Thanks for helping us arrange a very good ABC Trek!”



Dear Shekhar,
"Thanks for helping us arrange a very good ABC Trek!"
We are now back in Shanghai, and back to normal life, working. But all the impressions and happy memories from Nepal will stay with us for a long time, and help us keep our spirits high during the autumn!

First of all, I want to thank you and your company for the arrangements and planning of our trek, and your patience when we had to change and update our plans, number of participants, schedules and preferred routes. And all our questions about preparations!

The guide in Kathmandu, Keshar (I hope I both remember and spell his name correctly, please excuse me if not), was very good for our group of people! Well balanced sightseeing of the city in the limited time we had, good choice of places/events, and also having much knowledge about all the things that we asked about. You can immediately feel that he is a nice person!

Binod Lama is as you told us in advance, a very very good guide. Both his skills and friendly and humble personality were much appreciated by us during the whole trek. Everything went very smooth and without any complications for us, thanks to Lama! Please make sure he gets this good official feedback from our group, and I will of course also contact him myself to thank him.

The two porters were also good, nice and friendly. I think they will continue to learn and grow even more under guidance from Lama, who seemed to always try to share his knowledge with them in a good way.

If some small issues should be remarked, I think we should have prepared our porter luggage better, the loads were maybe a bit on the heavy side. From their side, I would have appreciated better rain protection of the bags during the heaviest rains, even if the outside material is waterproof, zippers are usually not, so we had some pretty wet gear one of the days.

For us as Swedish people, we are absolutely not used to having so much help from others, like having porters, and people trying to earn some money by carrying bags at airports, hotels, etc. Even in the mountains, we always carry our own gear. Please excuse us if we have been acting rude, and might not have understood appropriate tipping, for different categories of services. The tipping is very hard for us to judge the correct size of, to have any relations how to compare it with for example a meal or similar that people need or usually have.

If you can and will, I think it will be appreciated by other future travellers to have guidance for what is expected and appropriate as "base level" for tipping different categories of services.

So, what will we keep in our minds and hearts after this trekking? I should only speak for myself, even if I think my friends would agree!

The largest and right now most important impressions:
- The friendly and kind spirit of Nepal, both in Katmandu, Pokhara, and out in the mountains. No doubt I would like to come back to your country and see more of it, do other treks!

- To have the possibility to be outdoors for several days in a row, experiencing the beautiful nature of your country.

- All the nice local food and tea.

- Our kind, polite and well-organized guides.

- That we in the morning in ABC really had the opportunity to see the Annapurna I, that had been covered in clouds and fog until then! Also, the surrounding mountain massifs were an astonishing view.
