This is my personal impression of the 11 days’ Annapurna Base camp trek I booked via Happyland treks. This was my first trek in the Himalayas, and the trek was much more exciting and beautiful than I had ever imagined. Technically, trekking starts near Pokhara and lasts for ten days. However, I was in Kathmandu, so two days were added to my itinerary. The trip to Pokhara itself was the best adventure. I had many spellbinding views.My guide was very patient and helpful. He answered hundreds of my questions just within the trip to Pokhara. He was also very helpful throughout the trip. He taught me Nepali folk songs and explained to me about various cultures and traditions of this beautiful Himalayan countries.

I undertook this trek after many years. Last time I had trekked in the Langtang region of Nepal, this was around 2017. Even after all these years, the trek felt amazing. This is mostly due to the agency that helped me throughout the trek. I was assigned a great guide Subash. He catered very well to the needs of my buddy and me. He was a great guy who understood. where we were in a mood for conversation and brought up fascinating facts and myths about the place. He was also very well-informed; he knew all the owners and managers ofthe lodges in the region. He helped a lot to make our trip exciting. I will again choose the Happyland treks for my next trip to Nepal.

We did the ABC Trek with Happyland Treks. It was a remarkable experience, and the trek was strikingly beautiful. Ghandruk, Annapurna Base Camp and Jhinu – Hot Sprig amazing and more memorable for us. Our guide Dinesh and porter Badri always friendly with experience team. Thank you team of happyland.

We trekked with Happyland treks to ABC in April 2018. From the moment we emailed them,we knew this would be a wonderful trek. They always responded swiftly to emails and helped us every step of the way. We were picked up on the airport after our arrival. The next day we met our guide at the agency’s office. The guide was extremely helpful and kind. We then began the journey to Pokhara before the trek began. He had a great sense of humor, and he was also told us a lot about Nepal as we trekked.
