There are lots of trekking companies to choose to book you trip from internet but you can not go wrong with ALPINE ASIAN TREKS. I emailed a few as part of my search; I found Alpine Asian Treks the most reasonable, most responsive than other companies that I talked to. They offered me the best itinerary for the exact kind of trip I was looking for so we group of 7 people including me booked our trip through the internet with AATE for ABC ( Annapurna Base Camp) high altitude trekking under the Himalayas and followed by a stay in a peaceful environment around the lake......!!!
Upon arrival at airport in Nepal they welcomed us with special garland and transfer us straight to the hotel. At the evening time we went to their city office to finalize the trip where we met our trekking staff (Binod and 3 porters). Mr. Durga explained the trip in detail with including and excluding things, altitude sickness, regarding out trekking plan, trekking gear and the safety while on trekking …. Which we really appreciated that. !!
At the evening time we had such a great time together in Nepali cultural restaurant where they offered us a welcome dinner.
Following morning as our schedule we regulated our journey to pokhara with our trekking guide and porters.
ABC Trekking was the best experience, knowledgeable guides who spoke English perfectly; they were caring enough, helpful and provided the best service. Our guide gave us all the information regarding the customs, food, local villages and their culture etc. After seeing and meeting many other guides and groups I felt like I had the best guide with us.
Durga was supportive, encouraging, and provided the best advice and service. Thanks to Alpine Asian treks and family, our experience to Himalayas was fantastic! I sincerely recommend AATE to everyone
