Annapurna Circuit Trek Review

As I indicated before, you did an exceptional job of turning our trip around. We had planned on Everest Base Camp (EBC), but planes could not land in Lukla for about seven days. We had to decide whether to wait for EBC or transfer all energy and thoughts into Annapurna. Bertie and I chose Annapurna Circuit, and the rest of the trekkers who were assigned in our group went with us. Amazingly, Naba was able to provide an extra guide (Hira, for Bertie and me) and necessary porters for Annapurna Circuit. Luckily we had booked with HGT, a substantial trekking firm, and Naba was able to turn everything around from EBC to Annapurna Circuit in a very short period.

Our experience in Nepal, and especially Annapurna Circuit was a wonderful success and an endearing experience.

I don’t think anything would have made this trip better than it was. Hira, our guide, was excellent and astute to our needs and made the trek absolutely wonderful. Pasuram, our porter, was a “Rock Star Porter” who was personable and just awesome. Our route was well planned, and when we got ahead of schedule, Hira was able to call by mobile phone and adjust reservations. Just amazing.

I hope to return in 2014 and would not mind a repeat on Annapurna Circuit, adding a few things that we did not have time to do. I would want to be in a trekking group with Hira, for sure.

I have been in email contact with the 3 Brazilians who were part of our trekking group. They absolutely felt Annapurna Circuit was the best for this year. And because HGT did such a good job in rescheduling from EBC, I am sure they will plan their return to EBC in 5 years with HGT. Good PR for you. Also, Jen and Steve (from NYC) also felt that doing Annapurna Circuit was the best thing for this year, and I know they will also return to do EBC and will book again with HGT. Naba did a great job for all of us who had planned on EBC this year.

Thank you. You have all my confidence for the best experience in Nepal. Naba has suggested Tibet. I love Nepal – but Tibet would be something new. But I need the trekking; I leave Nepal feeling happy and healthy. A jeep tour would not do that.

Happy Holidays from the States!
