“Fantastic and totally succeed trek to Annapurna Base Camp and Poon Hill, together with our three kids (12,10,10)”

Review Posted by:

“Fantastic and totally succeed trek to Annapurna Base Camp and Poon Hill, together with our three kids (12,10,10)”

We can strongly recommend Mountain Sherpa as your organizer of trekkingtours in Nepal!
From the beginning the company had a relevant, personal and reflective communication with us about possibilities for a trek for our family with appropriate amount of challenges, beautifulness and safety (regarding altitude). It was very easy to adjust the trek, with extra days, special transports etc.
In Nepal all Agreements was met, together with an amazing ability, to adjust and amend plans ongoing on the trek depending on weather and health. The succeed was not least due to our fantastic guide Sherpa Pemba Chhiring, who did an extremely professional job and in addition is a very nice person all our kids and ourselves have come to care much of. The way of being together with our kids was outstanding. We were also very satisfied about our two very friendly porters, and during the days we all became the team we had dreamed about. From beginning to end it was the best experience ever.
Thank you for a fantastic experience

Annapurna Sanctuary trek- My memory of life time treks in Nepal

Pasang Sherpa and his brother Tandi did a super job leading us on our trip throughout Annapurna. Our experience in Nepal was magical due to their excellent guiding. The trip would not have been the same without their patient and safe presence. I feel that their preparation and expertise allowed us to hike and fully enjoy the beauty region. They are extremely Knowledgeable, about the Himalayas and only used best practices when leading us during the 14 days hike. I whole heartedly recommend Pasang Sherpa and dream of returning to Nepal to hike with Pasang and Tandi again.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
