This is my third time to use Himalayan Abode Travels service and same as used to be … Nabin took care of us very well with every details.
I went to ABC a week ago with my guide Mr Bhuban Phuyal who is professional, informative about culture and detail-minded for everything! He normally would stay at the back but when he knew something difference, he would walk faster and in front of us to make sure we can deal with it. He would help to check my room once again when we left the guesthouse to make sure we would not miss anything! Almost every nights, we got our own fruit plate that made others jealous! How sweet & touching!
My porter Mr Sabin Tamang, he is shy but helpful person! He packed our big backpack very well with his own backpacker covered on top to ensure they would not get wet! He walked faster at the end and dropped the backpack, came back to help us to carry our own to let our trekker more easily during last two days nearly to top.
I really have to say thank you to both Mr Bhuban Phuyal & Mr Sabin Tamang and without them, I couldn’t able to finish ABC!
Definitely, I will return to Nepal for trekking once again in future and will choose to use service from Himalayan Abode Travels and Tours Treks and Expeditions!Mandy Hongkong
Nov 2016 • SoloLast 16th Nov I start an amasing adventure that I will remember for my whole life.
I choosed a 8 days trekking to the Annapurna Base Camp. The agency proposed me the itinerary and arranged everything in few days, so when I arrived in Kathmandu I just relaxed sure that everything was ready!
During the trek everything was fantastic! My guide Sadhuram was very prepared and with a great knowledge of mountain. I spent unforgivable days visiting mountain villages, wonderful lanscapes and very good accomodations for the night. I felt safe and sure with my guide always ready to help and support me.
I want suggest this agency to those who want to had an amasing trekking experience in NepalLetizia Q Hungary

Ero con un gruppo misto di amici, siamo stati per 16 giorni con Sadhuram Ghorsaine, ci ha accompagnati nel trekking in annapurna ed è stato come un padre. Molto attento e gentile, non ci ha fatto mancare nulla. Ci serviva addirittura al tavolo e non c’è stato modo di farlo smettere. Gli abbiamo lasciato una meritata mancia in tutti quanti.
Esperienza, serietà e molta amicizia, sta facendo un corso di lingua italiana, fra poco sarà pronto anche per gli italiani piu radicali (no english 🙂 )
Ho conosciuto anche il suo boss, persona efficente e ottimo management, l’ultima sera ci ha anche offerto una squisita cena tradizionale nepalese.
Trasporti e spostamenti impeccabili, visitate poi Katmandu, Patan e Bjaktapur, per poi passare 3 giorni nel villaggio di Sudal. Esperienza imperdibile e piu bella di tutto il resto, dove si tocca realmente il Nepal, la vita in villaggio, si vive a contatto con loro e ci si immerge nella vita rurale, fabbriche di mattoni, coltivazioni, allevamenti. Alla sera splendida festa attorno a un grande fuoco tutti assieme. Esperienza fantastica, penso proprio che ci tornerò!
Struttura particolarmente indicata per chi fa un viaggio in Nepal per la prima volta.
Enjoy and share your trip with Sadu and the Abode Travels!Review from ricofata9 Italy

I had a 7 day trek to Annapurna base camp (ABC) with MB.
He was very helpful, careful and nice to me. I really enjoy this trip because of the many beautiful views along the way!Review from jonathan c Canada
Nov 2013 • CouplesAn excellent travel agency. Even found me a room to rest for half a day when I fell ill and had to cut short my KTM sightseeing on the last day of my trip. The guide they assigned to our ABC trek was extremely knowledgeable of the route and took very good care of us. Highly recommended!Review from favonius Taiwan
