What's included in this trip
Annapurna Sanctuary SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Kathmandu is like an alluring whirlwind of sights, sounds, smells and colours. Almost overwhelming, its charm and history peaks out from the most unexpected places rendering most visitors enamoured.
Bandipur is a delightful Nepalese town with traditional wooden houses, narrow streets and daily life spilling out into the streets, the same as it has been for centuries.
Nestled in a valley and sitting on a lake so still it reflects the mountains, Pokhara is the gateway to the Annapurna Ranges and Nepal's second largest city.
The Annapurna Range is a truly amazing region to explore with its spectacular mountain wilderness and isolated communities, each with their own ancestral customs and traditions.
With towering peaks in the distance and streets filled with cafes, shops and temples, Pokhara is a relaxing city sitting by the banks of Phewa Lake.

Annapurna Sanctuary, May 2014
The tour was great. Ashok, Dependra and Suburna were great! What wasn't great was that I got sick. Super sick. But that is a separate story. They were wonderful. I loved Ashok. He watched out for me, and I needed to be watched out for. I have no idea how I got through that trip. Seriously, no idea. I rated mostly good instead of excellent, because I feel like there is always room to grow and learn and better yourself. So I think he was pretty excellent at everything, but there's always more to learn, and things that I would t have even thought could be a factor, so I hope good still gets Ashok a bonus. Or accolades and many more trips in the future

Ashok was an EXCELLENT guide. He gave us clear expectations and instructions every day so we knew what was going on. He was highly in tune with our numerous health/sickness issues while travelling and went above and beyond to help us feel better (some examples: when I did not have medicines I needed, he called around to numerous pharmacies to find out which were open so we could swing by to get what I needed. He told us to wake him up any time of night if we are feeling sick and/or need help for any reason). He entertained us in down time with riddles and games, and was knowledgeable on facts about the region which was really interesting to hear about. He had a great attitude the entire trip and made it a really fun experience. After the trip, we all consider him a friend.
