Three Women at Annapurna Circuit Trek

We are a group of 3 women that did a 16 days trek in the Annapurna Circuit from the 3rd to the 19th July 2013 and through this letter we would like to thank you for the service provided by your company.

We would like to especially mention the excellent work performed by our guide-porter Tony. He was very professional at all times looking after us and making us feel cared about. He also provided interesting information on the flora, fauna, cultural aspects, etc. when requested and spontaneously. Even if we had the freedom to choose what we wanted to do during the trek, Tony was always helping us with his experienced knowledge to make the best or more appropriate decisions. Whenever any tense situation arose he was keeping calm and helping the team to stay in the same way. In addition Tony has been a good company after the trekking hours sharing time with us while eating and resting in the lodges. Regarding his English knowledge, we felt it was good enough to have a proper communication. At all times he was a very patient and respectful person both towards us and the local community.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

This April I went for the fourth time with Himalayan Glacier for trekking in Himalaya, this time Annapurna Circuit trek where I was in the mountains for 18 days. As at the previous times I had a fantastic trek and reached Thorong La pass without problems. I went alone with a guide (Norbu) and a porter. This time I have chosen to go alone because I am 62 years old and go slower than younger people and have experience that it is the best to keep own pace at high altitude. Still I managed nearly all the daily treks but two according to the original plan. The part between Muktinath and Marpha I have chosen to make in two days instead of one, spending an afternoon and night in the wonderful village Kagbeni, and also the part Kalapani to Tatapani I made in two days staying in Ghasa. Importantly, as at my earlier treks with Himalayn Glacier, I felt very safe during the whole trek and this feeling was reinforced by the fact that my guide was getting telephone calls from Narayan at the main office who was checking how we are doing and if there are any problems.
