My girlfriend and I (in the mid-thirties) did the Annapurna circuit in 15 days. For this trekking we used the outstanding service from Adventure Glacier Treks & Expeditions and their awesome Guide Roshan. We had a very good feeling from the first contact with the friendly and service-oriented owner of the agency, Dil Sapkota. On all our questions we got a quick response along of a lot of expertise. This helped us to improve our plans and to be sure that we found our agency. Care was taken on permits, transfers (bus and plane) and accommodations (the owner also has a lovely AirBnB close to the tourist bus station in Thamel). All was perfectly organized such that we had no worries during our trip which was very helpful. The agency chooses Roshan as our Guide which was a perfect match. He is a super friendly, carrying and funny person. He always provides a perfect service, helps whenever help was needed and gave us great insights in the culture, in the people and the country. He was also very flexible and responsive to our wishes (e.g., trekking route). We had a great time on the treks and during the time off the paths. For our purposes the perfect guide who became a friend from day one. We would like to thank you, Dil and Roshan so much to ensure that we had three phenomenal weeks in the fascinating Nepal. We are looking forward to the next trek with you!
