We had an excellent experience of trekking in Annapurna Circuit by White Hill Adventure company and their expert guide Jiban; he is perfect in his job, knows the way, hostels, distances etc, he cares a lot for the customers, i do not forget the last day, when my headlight didnt work and Jiban, helped me with his cell phone’s light all the darkness while he had only a thin pair of gloves... this is not sth being written in any agreement... Thanks for creating such wonderful moments for us in Nepal.

Great HONEST People. Best Experience :) Date of experience: December 2017

Anuj and Naba are great guys! They really sincerely want to help any way they can. I have used White Hill twice now, once for a solo trek in Annapurna Circuit and more recently I came with a group of friends and we all did the ABC Trek. Both times it was really easy to work with these guys and I had the most amazing guide, Pasang. Do not underestimate the value of having an experienced guide with you! They handle everything, hassle free!! Very Honest and friendly company. You will not find a better experience in Nepal! Thank you!

I booked a 18 days trekking adventure with White Hill Adventure and never looked back. I was very impressed with their profesionalism and they designed the perfect trekking trip specifically for me. I was assigned with Mr. Resham Lama and he quickly became my best friend for the whole trek. With his vast experience of the area and in trekking, he ensured that I got the best lodges, best view, best route and most importantly best food (dhal bhat power 24 hours!!). I will not hesitate to recommend this company to my fellow Malaysians and will return again myself for the next Himalayan adventures. Danyabab White Hill Adventure and Mr. Resham Lama..!!

"Excellent adventure with White Hill Adventure." - Date of experience: December 2016

John R ,Perth-Australia At 2019-02-14 01:45:00

Everything which was promised came true and much more! We went on the Annapurna Circuit then Pokhara then Chituan Safari & back to Kathmandu. Our guide, Prem went way beyond our expectations to care for us & and give us the best trip. My son got sick but Prem helped find medical aid in the middle of the trek and organised for our backpacks to be taken by motorcycle to our next stop so we could continue. It's true that you could do the circuit without a guide. But in our case we wouldn't have made it without our guide. All hotels we stayed at were very good and all transfers were smooth as can be. The price was very reasonable with everything clearly itemised. Don't book from overseas. Just come to Kathmandu & book with this agency. Oh, after trek service also excellent. I can't recommend thus place enough!
