We were trekking 16 days on Annapurna circle. Started on Beshisahar and exit Phedi.
When we arrived at airport Mr Nabin the owner of Himalayan Abode Travels was waiting for us already. Next day we were city sightseeing with his guide. It was 100% OK but one day is enough for this experience. Next morning we got a private car with driver from Mr Nabin to go to Beshisahar. Our guide Shambu was perfect from the first day until the last moment. He was always there where he had to be! Next time i will asking again for his assistant. Our porter Djuandra was also pro. Helpful, patient, and good stamina.
When we flew back from Pokhara to Kathmandu Mr Nabin was again waiting for us in the airport. And last day we got from him some present and they take us to the airport.
Great service! Anything i was asking from him he was trying to do his best! Dhanyabad!

I had a very tight timetable to do the ACT trek. Nabin helped a lot to accommodate my schedule and assigned a very good guide who also helped with my luggage. There was some issue with domestic flight due to fuel problem. Nabin and the guide helped a lot to solve the problem and help me finish the tour on time. Overall service is very good and price very reasonable. Also gave me good FX rate.

I left the house just to buy a chocolate bar and ask about a bus ticket to the start of the trek, but bought the entire tour with all transfers, accommodation and food and the services of an accompanying guide. So Nepali All inclusive!🔥😁

Kseniia T Review fromKseniia T Kseniia TRussia

Himalayan Abode is an excelent travel agency. We had no problem whatsoever during our trip, everything was organized perfectly on our 24 day visit. Nabin was very helpful, he arranged everything we asked for. Our guide, Dev was also perfect, he knows everything around Annapurna, he treated us as family. The porters were also very helpful and kind.
I can only highly recommend the agency and the Annapurna Trek!

Grace à Himalayan Abode travels nous avons découvert le Népal en 10 jours. Circuit découverte ciblé, très bonne organisation du séjour. Les hôtels sélectionnés étaient parfaits et les taxis toujours à l’heure. Merci à Nabin et Prabin pour le bon déroulement et la bonne organisation de ce circuit.

Ich war mit der Organisation sehr zufrieden Wir haben gemeinsam den bestmöglichen Preis für mich gefunden. Sehr gut hat mir auch gefallen , dass ich kurzfristig eine Nacht im Hotel stornieren konnte, weil ich meine Reise route verändert hatte und eine Nacht in bakthapur geblieben bin. Dies war problemlos möglich . vielen Dank dafür nabin war sehr nett und hat geholfen, w
