We hust got back from 12 days trek from Annapurna Base Camp and it was hard work but amzing. After Meeting Basu we decided  on his recommendation to do the Annapurna Base Camp trek. We were looking for the somethings more remote, which is exactly what we found at Annapurna region on our trek. The charming village at Ghandruk, Sunrise from Poon hill, peaceful surrounding with beautiful nature and the stand face to face with Mt. Annapurna are highlights of this trek. From the first minutes to the last we enjoyed our story in Nepal and Basu made it possible for us. We heartily recommemd this Adventure Himalaya Circuit travel agency to everyone in Nepal.
