Awesome adventure, made easy by an amazing company
I have just completed Annapurna Base Camp Trek with my collages. Thanks to Hari Bhatta for bringing his team, Shiva and 2 porters. I am grateful that they pay attention to every single detail and assist me to complete the trek without any problems. They have been very motivating as the trek was moderately difficult to me and of course that are not quite fit in physical fitness, because there are lots of stairs and walking. Mr. Hari is very experienced in this field and he is very trustworthy. I will definitely consider his other trekking packages for vacation plans. We highly recommend Life Dream Adventure.

A Memorable Trekking in ABC
This is my first time and went alone with ABC. i was always dreamt about hiking in Himalaya mountain, I was worried as I had no experience with high altitudes.
My guide Manish looked after me very carefully because I got back pain during the 11 days trekking. He is an experienced guide who knows the region very well. He did a great job at scheduling the daily trek and adapting the length and speed of trekking to my personal needs and desires.
Luckily I had no high altitude sick and completed the whole journey with my back pain, I must say that Manish gave me an unforgettable journey; he made the trip fun and always making I laugh.
After eleven days in the remoteness of the Mountain my guide has become a friend
Especially Tolka is the best one I like to stay, the lodge owner is nice and she made the curry chicken is the best in ABC. I took very nice Milky Way photo during my trip here
Thank you Hari again for planning and a great guide to help me on all my need, so I must dedicate all our time to watch and took nice photo of the wonderful landscapes and enjoy the entire trip.

This was a tough trek climbing 1000s of stone steps up and down the mountains, but the epic views up at Annapurna Base Camp were every bit worth the sore knees getting there and back! We'll remember the views, and the dal bhat, but equally so the great interaction of the group with our tour leader Sabin, assistant guides Manish and porters Shiva, Rajkumar and Uttam including some hilarious games of Uno in the tea houses. I can't wait for more sip sip jam jam and Nepali flat on another trek. We highly recommend this company.

In February, the ABC Trek is a wonderful experience with serene trails and mostly clear weather, despite the chilly temperatures at higher elevations. Our group leader, Sabin, exceeded expectations in ensuring a smooth journey. We were fortunate to have Manish as our assistant guide, who was not only diligent but also a pleasure to be around. Our porters, Shiva and Raj, made the trek ten times easier and even became close friends by the end of the trip. Aside from the breathtaking scenery, the trip was exceptional from start to finish.
