This was my first time traveling to Nepal. There were a lot of uncertainties with not only the long trek but also with all the covid-related travel restrictions. Shailesh went above and beyond and helped me navigate through all of my uncertainties and hurdles even way before I arrived in Nepal. I was able to enjoy Nepal upon initial landing because all the transportation and accommodations were taken cared of for me ahead of time. The trek I did is the Annapurna Panoramic Trail and it was led by my guid Nawin. I literally have nothing negative to say about my guide or the trek. Nawin really looked after me during the entire trek; from constantly paying attention to how I was breathing and my footsteps (so he could adjust our trekking pace accordingly), to always making sure I get the best room in all of our mountain lodges, he is honestly one of the greatest, down to earth and selfless person I've encountered. As a Taiwanese-American, Nawin also helped me navigate through the cultural differences and unknown that I encountered as well. The trek itself isn't easy, but relatively not too difficult compared to Everest basecamp. Every morning, I am greeted by the golden sunrise that blends beautifully with the mountains and clouds. I know I will remember the 6 days worth of trek for a really, really long time. The only item I want to mention is that there are some additional costs that are not accounted for in this booking and are extra expense. Specifically from my trip, it was the travel expense to and from Pokhara as well as the last 2 night's stay. If I come back to Nepal, I would love to have Shailesh and Nawin help with my trip again. All the best.

This is 1st time solo trekking tip in Nepal for 11 days. Thank you Shailesh and his team to do the best arrangements to take care me in Kathmandu and Pokhara. All the professional and experienced trekking guides they provided in their company, like Mr. Nawin who is my trekking guide in this journey! I had a wonderful trekking time from Birethati to Tolka, the highest point in Poon Hill(3220m). I will come back to explore Nepal next year. I would like to choose Shailesh and his team when I am in Nepal again. Thank you wry much and see u soon Nepal !
