One of the best experience of my life

Namaste. I did the Annapurna Circuit Trek back in July over the Monsoon period. We were a group of three trekkers, all travelling alone to Nepal for the first time. What a beautiful place and what great people the Nepali’s are. Himalayan Wonders really took care of us from start to finish, and a special thanks must go out to our guide, who is just a wonderful guy. The trek was out of this world; i was quite afraid before embarking on the trek as I had not done anything longer than day treks before, nor had I travelled alone overseas before, but all my fears soon dissipated when I arrived in this amazing and humbling terrain. Annapurna Basecamp is a decently challenging trek. This trek takes you right to the spot which has witnessed the most historic mountaineering expeditions in the world. Needless to say, the views of Annapurna South, Annapurna 1, Annapurna Fang and Macchapuchare stay with you, long after you have completed this trek. There are a lot of steps to climb from Ghandruk to Chomorong, and all the way up to Dovan. The views that you get from the snowcapped mountains and walking through the little villages were definitely a highlight for me.
