May 2010  We enjoyed our trekking in the Annapurna region, and our guide was excellent, the tour was very well planned and despite political problems at the time we always felt safe.  We trekked at our own pace and were never rushed.  The trails are beautiful especially the part through the rhododendron forest.  We would recommend Himalayan Abode Travel to anyone wishing to take this tour.

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!

首次一人旅行尼泊爾,委請旅行社協助,提供妥善的規劃,到達加德滿都之後,從接駁到行程解釋、塔美爾簡單路線介紹都非常詳細細心,是愉快又安心的旅行!

Trekking安排的嚮導是Balaram,對於當地歷史文化、生態都瞭解並解說,讓走路之外與尼泊爾多了連結,吃住也都很好,一個女生的安全疑慮全放下了,很難得很滿意。

謝謝用心!

An 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 fromfavonius favoniusTaiwan

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!

พวกเรามาเที่ยวเนปาลเป็นครั้งที่สอง เนปาลยังคงเป็นมีมนต์เสน่ห์ทั้งสถานที่ท่องเที่ยวด้านวัฒนธรรม และที่เที่ยวด้านธรรมชาติ ครั้งนี้พวกเราได้ไปที่ออสเตรียเลียน แคมป์ วันอรก้ดินประมาณ5ชั่วโมง พักค้าง 1 คืน ตตอนสายก็เดินกลับแบบสบายๆ เส้นทางผ่านหมู่บ้าน มีความเหนื่อยเล็กน้อย แต่คุ้มค่ากับวิวยอดเขามัสฉาปูชะเรที่สวยงาม ขอบคุณ Nabin ที่นำเสนอสุดยอดโปรแกรม และ Deb ไกด์ที่มากประสบการณ์ ช่วยดูแล และแนะนำเราตลอดทาง ครั้งหน้าเราคงได้ไปที่ ABC อย่างแน่นอน
