    My wife and recently completed the Annapurna Base Camp Trek organised by Outdoor Himalayan Treks. We had the support of a guide whose name is Rupe and a porter whose name was Gyan. We would highly recommend this company as efficient and well organised. We completed our goal and arrived back safely to Katmandu having really enjoyed our time. I want to reiterate that I have no connection whatsoever with this company so please feel confident in my recommendation.

    I spent 12 full days trekking in the Annapurna Base Camp Trail during the low season in Nepal. In my original plans I supposed to trek to Everest but weather didn´t help and Lukla airport stayed closed for the week. Even though this fact, the team from Outdoor Himalayan Treks didn´t save efforts in customize a new trekking plan for me, in a few hours. They gave me two options for trekking and made everything to make my trip perfect. I confess in the beginning I was really affraid not being able to walk my way to the top of the moutains, to the base camp, but Prakash, my guide, made everything to make me confident myself and arranged the best accomodation and food for me. June is low season and it is perfect if you have time to re-schedule flights and also wants to avoid crowded trails, but have in mind that might rain a lot. My trip was perfect, a life experience and I strongly recommend Outdoor Himalayan Treks!

    My husbend Jurek and I (Magda) two weeks ago finished our stay in Nepal. We had the best experience with our guides: Kumar in Katmandu and Prakash and Indro porter in Annapurna Base Camp – trecking. They were all extremely friendly and accommodating throughout the duration of our trek. Outdoor Himalayan Treks provides outstanding customer service. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for an incredible trekking experience!
