It was my first time to go for trekking and was really great experience. The guide with us (Chuda) adjusted our pace of trekking well. Lodging and food were also very nice. I hope i could continue the trekking few days. 3 nights 4 Days trek was too short!!
During the trekking about 2800 m, I felt a light headache due to its hight. Chuda noticed it and helped me to carry my luggage. It was very helpful to me, and I was impressed by his good obesuation skills.
1st and 2nd day were easy. 3rd days were the hardest day for me with long hours walk and climbing down. Which caused horrible ache, over all scenery was very beautiful; especially walking in the forest was pleasant. Chuda san (Guide) had been always very nice, kind, diligent and modest. We are so satisfied with hid accompany, very appreciated. Food was also very good with lots of choices at every restaurant. For lodging , I loked the view of the 2nd night hotel where I was able to enjoy mountains. I also liked the relaxing and beautiful village of the 3rd night. Hotel at pokhara was clean and at a very convenient location.
Our guide Jhanak was amazing. He taught us many things about the mountains, the people and the country. We think that the agency was very helpful for all the logistic and the organization of the trek.
The price is also good and every aspect was above our expectation. Jhanak is rally professional and he showed he controlled the situation perfectly. He was very nice and kind and generous of his time.
About Trekking company: Very reliable and professional
The Pilgrimage trek to Damodar Kunda and Lo-manthang in Upper Mustang in Nepal has been exceptional and truly exciting and fulfilling. The trip was made comfortable and enjoyable by the excellent services rendered by the staff of Alpine Asian Treks & Exp (P) Ltd who took special care of each one of us to make it a life time experience for all of us.
I stumbled across in AATE in Kathmandu, Nepal- A lucky coincidence since they offered the one trip to the mysterious hidden country that I have dreamed of: All the way from the breath-taking view of Mt. Everest from the Tibetan Base Camp to the majestetic beauty of the Potala palace in Lhasa. Stunning! It was an adventure to experience the culture, life style and altitude, but a very pleasant one due to the constant efforts of our lovely guide. This should be on the list of what to do at least once in your life time.
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!!

To whom it may concern
We, a married couple from Canada completed the Annapurna circuit 11Aoril to 29 April 2007. We booked the services of a guide and a porter through Mr. Shekhar Bahadur Thapa at Alpine Asian Treks and have nothing but good things to say regarding our experience with Mr. Shekhar and the guide and Porter which we hired through Alpine Asian Treks. Our guide Pasang Sherpa, was helpful in times of looking out for our safety and explaining Nepali culture. His warm smile and by laugh helped us through some of the harder days. Our porter Mr. Deb Bhakta, took exceptional care of our belongings and was very efficient and friendly. Both were extremely courteous , attentive and professional. We want to thank Mr. Shekhar for providing us two great people to trek with. We were very happy with the level of service provided by Alpine Asian Treks. Rest assured that Mr. Shekhar is committed to the highest quality of customer service. We would not hesitate to recommend him and his company’s professional services to others. One day, when we return to Nepal, we will plan to do further business with Alpine Asian Treks. Thanks for the Great experience.
Trip Name : Everest, Gokyo Lake and Kalapathar Trek
Superb Experience with Alpine Asian Treks and Exp.(AATE).Booked and Everest , Gokyo lake, Kalapatter, trip with AATE through internet. It was an all inclusive package and it seriously was “All” inclusive. They go way out of normal service rendered by typical four agencies to make my stay a really pleasant one right from the start of my trip; many hiccups were taken care of by the staff of AATE. E.g. lost baggage flight cancellation due weather and hence last minute change of trekking plan to Annapurna Circuit. Heaps of paper work needed to be done and they were completed in a span of 1 hour. trekking pass, arrangement of driver, new flights, accommodation and documentation to assist me in claiming travel insurance). My sincere appreciation to staff of AATE, especially Milan for answering my endless questions through e-mail and taking great effort to see to my request of shopping @ shops with honest prices for my trekking gear and souvenirs.
Trip Name : Annapurna Circuit + Ghorepani Trek
Another must highlight person is my personal guide for 12 days (Annapurna Circuit and Ghorepani), Mr. Krishna Gurung, He is very experienced and very meticulous in looking after every detail to make my trip a comfortable one. He also tries to make conversation to introduce Nepal’s culture, religions and of course the flora and fauna in Annapurna. He has a good command of English and is in fact a kind fatherly figure well-liked by his local friends as we trekked from village to village, strongly recommend his service.
See you on 2011

In short, I was very happy and satisfied with their friendly and professional service and support during my trip of Jiri to Everest Base Camp Trek and Island Peak Climbing. Since I have been dreaming about trekking and climbing in Nepal for many years. Finding the right people to help me turn my dream to reality was of utmost importance needless to say. So they were very responsive and efficient in terms of organizing and running the itinerary. And also very friendly and courteous.
Thank you all the staff @ AATE. For helping me live the dream for other trekking plans. I have in mind in the upcoming season. I will never hesitate to go with AATE again and definitely recommend them to my family and all other acquaintances who wish to trek in Nepal.
