I have just returned from the trek around Annapurna which I enjoyed immensely. Babu Ram Karki,s company has looked after me extremely well. I am travelling alone, so I did the trek with a guide and porter. I am so glad I did because a big pack on a hot steep slope is tough. We stayed at wonderful hotels full of character and a lot of exciting plumbing. The trek takes you through many different environments from lush green barley fields to the barren rocks of the Thorung La at 5400 meters. The beauty of this country is stunning. The day’s walks were planned just right to arrive at the hotel. The guide and porter were always there for me and especially if I felt tired. I practiced speaking Nepali which made everyone laugh, but they really love it if you try. All the permits and travelling arrangements went without any hitches and Babu Ram was very accommodating with my changes of plan at short notice.
