Reviews for Nepal trekking holiday, Annapurna Sanctuary


review 15 Nov 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We had a fantastic experience in Nepal. The scenery was spectacular ranging from the rhododendron forest “jungle” to the glacial ice-covered peaks. Most memorable however was the rapport of our guide and porters; their happiness and joy emanated as they sang and laughed with us as we hiked along the trails. Their enthusiasm for sharing the stories of their beloved country was endearing.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Understand that “reservations” in the lodges, particularly in the higher elevations of the trek, are tentative and based on beds not necessarily rooms. We appreciated the individualized end-to-end travel arrangements from airport arrival to departure yet there was sufficient flexibility in the itinerary to accommodate our desired experiences.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The policies of the local trek operator with respect to porter welfare were clearly evident as we observed and compared the smaller loads of our porters with those in other groups. The social engagement of our local guide and porters with us at the lodges and along the trails was also distinctively different from what we observed of other trek operators.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Our trip met and exceeded our expectations.
