Trip Feed Back: Annapurna Poonhill Trekking

panmaneeI went to Nepal in December 2008 for trekking and to experience the great hospitality of Nepalese people, colorful culture and traditions as well as experience the simple living in mountain.  My friend in Thailand recommended me to contact Babu, so I had trekked with him for 4 days to PoonHill. I was really satisfied with his service, he was friendly and helpful.  I was also satisfied with his expertise in trekking guide and trekking arrangement.  My trip was well-organized and fantastic, I really enjoyed my holidays there.  If you are thinking to have trekking in Nepal, please go to him and Adventure Great Himalaya, the best trekking agency in Nepal. He will make you the best holiday.

Trip Feed Back: Jomsom Trekking

reg and marienanne"Absolutely brilliant” My wife and I went trekking in Nepal during autumn 2009 for three weeks. We are in our 50’s and neither of us had ever done anything like this before but it was something we both wanted to do. We had to decide between a local or western company for our trek. Fortunately for us, a friend of ours recommended Babu and now we have used his services I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone going trekking in Nepal.

After contacting Babu by email he helped us sort out the best trek for us while we were still in England, this gave us a bit of time to read up on what was in store, we did the Jomsom trek in case you are wondering. In fact he arranged everything for us, picked us up at the airport on arrival, booked our hotels rooms (both the one in Kathmandu and Pokhara were very comfortable in lovely quiet surroundings), arranged our internal flights within Nepal and took us on some wonderful sightseeing trips around Kathmandu and Pokhara and finally made sure we got the plane home again. Our three weeks in Nepal were an absolutely amazing experience made all the better for meeting Babu.

 We found Babu to be very friendly and genuine, extremely diligent in his care of us, going out of his way to make sure he met our needs.

One thing we noticed while we were trekking was that not all mountain guides were the same, some people we talked to were not happy with their guides, whilst others like us had no problems.  On our trek we stayed in Tea houses with wonderful mountain views, some of the places were quite busy, the standard of accommodation was at times quite reasonable; sometimes we even had an on-suite bathroom!  Food was always cooked from fresh and not obviously westernized so you felt you were getting a true flavour of Nepalese cooking.  The trek we did was sometimes quite hard work but we were rewarded every day by the friendliness and hospitality of the Nepalese people and the magnificent scenery.

Trip Feed Back: Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking

Nepal, on top of the world!
Some roadblocks due to landslides, but in the end we were able to reach Tibet! » 
Up the mountain and down the mountain, just like a couple of mountaingoats!
Tuesday September 4th, 2007 by Daniëlle

In Pokhara we walked up to the World Peace Pagode. First we took a small rowboat to the other side of the lake with a stop at the small island in the middle to take a look at the Varahi Mandir (Hindu temple). After a nice climb up the mountain with a lot of nice birds and butterflies on the way we arrived at the World Peace Pagode. On top of the mountain we gained a new friend, a German dog named Rambo 2, who loved to walk along with us as our adoption dog until its worried Nepalese owner came to take him back home. We walked back taking another route and visited the Devi’s Falls, a nice waterfall.         

Yesterday we returned safely from our six day trekking from Naya Pul to Phedi with overnight stays in Tikedungha, Ghorepani, Tadapani, Ghandruk and Dhampus.

  • Day 1: Pokhara (915 m) to Naya Pul (1050 m) by car. From Naya Pul (1050 m) to Tikedungha (1577 m).
  • Day 2: From Tikedungha (1577 m) to Ghorapani (2675 m).
  • Day 3: Because of the weather we skipped the climb towards Poon Hill (3232 m). From Ghorapani (2675 m) to Tadapani (2675 m).
  • Day 4: From Tadapani (2675 m) to Ghandruk (1950 m).
  • Day 5: From Ghandruk (1950 m) to Dhampus.
  • Day 6: From Dhampus to Phedi (1113 m) and back by car to Pokhara.

The trekking was really nice, passing small villages and wonderful nature. Especially the waterfalls were very impressive. Unluckily because of the rain during the afternoon on the second day, the third day and the last day, we were not able to take a lot of pictures and skipped our trip to Poon Hill, because the view would only consist of clouds.

The first day I felt a little tired and when we arrived at the place we would spend the night I got a fever. So I hit the sack early and luckily felt much better the next morning. To my regret I seemed to have passed the fever on to Edvar at the end of the second day.

Only Edvar did not seem to get rid of his fever as easily as I did and the problem is he kind of looses his appetite when he is sick, which is not really a good thing when you have to get up and down mountains for five to six hours every day for six days in a row. But although slower than normally my superman was able to finish the trekking. He felt slightly better when the time passed and at the last day I have declared him a healthy man again :).

Our guide Babu Ram Karki is a very nice guy to hike with through the mountains for six days. During our trip we met a few other tourists, but not many since it is still off season. Due to the rainy weather we missed out on the spectacular snowcapped mountains, which were hidden behind the clouds. We only were able to get a few glimps of the Annapurna South (7273 m) and the Hiunchuli (6441 m). We met two English ladies (Chirsty and Becky), with whom we spend some nice evenings chatting.

During the trip we were accompanied by a few Nepalese dogs, because of course I had been too friendly again. Edvar said I really had to watch out, because otherwise we might end up with another adoption dog

When we were picked up by our taxi at the end of our trekking we heard about the bombings that took place in Kathmandu. In November there will be elections in Nepal and these kind of stupid terrorist acts were claimed by some small ethnic groups who try to sabbotage the elections. Nepal used to be a monarchy and has a temporary government right now, which will be replaced after the election by a new hopefully stable government, which will hopefully be able to improve the situation in Nepal.

The tourist season in Nepal starts in September and chances are high the bombings will effect the amount of tourists travelling towards Nepal. It is a shame that a country with such friendly inhabitants has to suffer and will have problems to develop itself, because of a few idiots. Nepal really depends on money earned from tourism.


Recommendation for great Himalaya feed back.
Going on a trek around the valley in Katmandu, was a great way to see the local area on a limited schedule.  Babu Karki was my guide and friend who showed me the geographical way as well as the cultural way of Nepal.  Mr. Karki invited me into his home and life and allowed me the opportunity to know Nepal in a way impossible for a tourist. I am very happy from his service so If some one interested to visit Nepal I am not hesitate to recommend to Him.

Trip Feed Back: Annapurna South

I was in Nepal in 2004 as part of a one-year world tour. I had been looking forward to this leg of my trip for a long time and the first task was to find a guide for a 7-day trek to Annapurna South.

I was in Nepal in 2004 and was very lucky to have met Babu who became my guide for a 7-day trek to Annapurna South. Babu's knowledge of the area and local customs made him a great guide. His English is excellent and his perpetual smile and easygoing manner added to making it a truly special experience.

If you are going to Nepal, and I strongly recommend it, I equally strongly recommend. His company Adventure great Himalaya and hiring Babu to be your guide

Trip Feedback: Annapurna Base Camp/ Langtang.

It was my 1st time in Nepal and I got to admit that the initial shock was a bit overwhelming. It was soon disappeared when I started trekking in the mountains. I really appreciate the whole experience for the whole time I was in Nepal, and a big part of it was given to me by Babu and his staff.

Babu's service was great; he listened to my opinion and opened to discussion, for him to be able to customized an ideal trip for me to experience the most in Nepal.

Our experienced guides and porters played a big part too during the treks. We were well taken care of and having fun in the same time. For that good service, I immediately decided for another trek right after returning from Annapurna.My 2nd trek to Lantang is more personal; as it was only me and my guide: Arjun, we agreed to trek as friends/buddies right from the beginning of the trek. I really do learn a lot from him in this trek as we talked about our own cultures and backgrounds. I was even given the honor to meet his lovely family after the trek.I felt like having some good time with my old friend, and that will be my reasons to come back to Nepal again soon.

Trip feedback: Gokyo Chola pass Everest Base Camp

We made a right decision to choose Adventure Great Himalaya  after corresponding with more than 10 other agencies. Babu, the owner of the agency is very trustworthy and reliable. His promptness to reply to all my concerns and queries made the whole preparation a breeze.

He is fast in making last minute changes and will give constructive advises. We have difficulty to finalise our number of days and travelling date. On top of being ambitious, we wanted to complete Everest Base Camp via Gokyo and Chola Pass in 15 days. 3 days short from the normal itinerary. Babu was very accomodative and made our trip an unforgetable memory. 

He had given a wonderful service and help to us. Making arrangements for us when our luggage did not arrive, rebook air ticket to Lukla, making contact with our insurance company and even assist to pay our medical bill in the hospital.

Will highly recommend his service to others!

Trip feedback: Tibet tour
I remember my Nepali and Tibetan trip arranged by Adventure Great Himalaya Treks with pleasure: Tibetan landscape, Everest base camp and trekking in Samye. We had also some difficulties, and we change our itinerary on the move but Babu was always very present and helpful in fixing every issue or satisfying the requests, even if in Kathmandu (Tibetan agencies are separate from nepales ones). I recommend his travel agency.

Trip feedback: Everest Base Camp

A goal that is achievable by anyone that enjoys walking and getting out. The tour was streamlined by a wonderful tour company that catered for all needs. Varied food on each day, great comfortable accomodation, chatty and friendly local guides and lovely porters that couldnt do enough for you! The Everest base camp is seen as a tourist route where many groups received less quality accomodation and food than our tour. Organisation is good from Katmandu. Babu the director is welcoming and attends in person. 

I would definitely use this company again when I return to tackle the other areas of Nepal.
