After contacting several trekking companies, Jayaram stood out as being sincere and knowledgeable about the Annapurna region. From the first point of contact, the communication was clear and organised. From the beginning, I was sure that I would not regret going with this company!
We went as an all ladies group, with different requirements, and I was amazed at the effort that Jayaram and his team put in to ensure that we were all safe and comfortable throughout the trek.
The trek itself was well organized and a beautiful experience! After completing the scenic Mardi Himal trail, we took an extra day and ended our trek at the quaint Jhinu Dhanda hot springs. I applaud the entire base camp hike team, including Dipendre and Bibek, for their charm and professionalism! Stay great guys! And I look forward to seeing you reach great new heights (pun intended!).
