A few weeks ago small group of friends and me did a 12 days trek to Annapurna Base Camp with Nepal Planet Treks and we highly recommend them to anyone who plans to go trekking in Nepal. While we could have travel in considerably cheaper if we had gone without a guide, but the experience would not have been the same without our best guide in the world. Our Guide Sanjib was knowledgeable regarding the people, terrain, and physical requirements necessary to do such a hike. Had guide not been with us, and we had hiked by ourselves, we would have missed out on a ton of great information and possibly overexerted ourselves along the way. NJ at Nepal Planet Treks did a great job organizing the trek, as well. He was honest, well organized, and very easy to deal with. I am currently planning my next trek in Nepal and I will definitely go through Nepal Planet Trek s to organize my trek. Great business and five star guide Mr Sanjib

Incredible trek as well. Annapurna South Base Camp was amazing.
