Annapurna trekking

Soni S At 2019-02-15 04:22:00

I did the Annapurna Trekking last year. It was great, one of my best experience. The weather was nice, but the guide and his team was the best, very kindly and funny and attentive with us. Dinesh explain us many things and curiosties about his country, people, customs, etc.... We do not rule out returning and of course we will contact with Dinesh.

Great guides and incredible tours

Alex F Dubai, United Arab Emirates At 2019-02-15 04:23:00

I have been trekking around the Annapurna and Dinesh and his team have been amazing. They have answers to all your questions and guide you up the mountains to make sure you reach your goal. Quick in their responses and recommendations it made the trip even better. I have no doubt that I will return soon and would book Dinesh and his team again without hesitation.The trek itself offers spectacular views on some of the highest peaks in the world and the last day of the crossing, although you have to start rather early in the morning, is an experience you will never forget and can't be valued in money. The timings of the daily routes are just right and therefore you have enough to time for acclimatization and with it, there id enough fun so you will not give up. I also enjoyed a lot, that there are so many other trekkers around from all over the world and you get to meet people at different stations along the trek all over again. I am so glad that I have booked this trip, made friends for a lifetime and had an experience that brought me at stages at my absolute limits. But because of Dinesh and the team, it was easy to overcome that and fall in love with this part of the world. Thank you so much to the team of Nature Explore for an unforgettable trek and everything they have done to make sure this will be an unforgettable experience. I will be back soon for sure. There is still so much to see and explore.

Trekking in Annapurna region

Owen B At 2019-02-15 04:24:00

We had an amazing time trekking in the Annapurna region thanks to our guide Fatha Khatri. He is great in every aspect. Speaks good English and knows the treks by heart and will find the best accomodation for every night. He has great experience and can time the treks perfectly according to your stay, and can answer all your questions about mountains and vegetitation. I really recommend him. The best for sure :)

Wonderful Experience

Deniz A At 2019-02-22 00:18:00

Lots of my friends have wonderful treks with these guys, and as their suggestions and compliments I've arranged my 1 week trip with that company. Just two words: "Magnificent Experience". Bharat (the tour guide) arranged everything 2 weeks before i came to Kathmandu. All flight tickets, cars, hotels and lodges(guest houses) etc. all are done. The trek is very wonderful. The view and the atmosphere are magnificient. The guide, Bharat knows all the narrow roads, mountains, trek way very very well. Last day due to heavy rain steps are disaapeared but his knowledge of each m2 of the destination helped us to find the best alternative ways. Also, Shabi (porter) is very experienced, carried my bag all the way with smile and helped me to do trek easily. Not only he helped me in walking, but also he helped me everytime when we are resting in the hotel. Everything is wonderful. I really suggest you choose Nature Explore for everything you want to do in Nepal. Thank you guys.

Man is known by the 'company' he runs!

Nairobi, Kenya At 2019-02-22 00:19:00

As the title says: A man is known by the 'company' he runs! And what a company to have. We were a bunch of friends and Dinesh was our guide to ABC. A warm and kind soul indeed that reflects his pure nature like the surroundings. Also to add the patience with which he took us along on this photographic journey. And with daal bhat power in the day and 'khukhri:)' power in the night it was a fun ride to the foothill of one of the most magnanimous peak of the Himalaya. And I'm sure with this experience in hand we are definitely looking forward to EBC soon! Cheers.
