Amazing ABC Trekking

Rated 5 out of 5

We were 2 friends who did the Annapurna Base Camp trek via Ghorepani Poon Hill with guide Ram and porter Dipendra Jan/Feb 2018. It was very comfortable, familiar, and professional with these guys. We had a great tour and a lot of fun. Jayaram responded to all our questions very quickly. Outstanding warm hospitality!
100% Recommendation! Support this small local trekking company in Kathmandu.
Thank you, Jayaram for this perfect trip.
