My wife and I hired Friends Adventure Team to guide us on our 9 day Trek to Annapurna Base Camp, with a few extra days in Kathmandu and Pokhara. From the second we landed until the day we left Nepal, Friends Adventure Team took every step to make sure we were comfortable, happy, and having fun. They basically took care of everything- transportation, accommodations, meals, and much more! Thank you to Rajendra for ensuring our vacation ran smoothly, for taking us out to dinners, and for offering us a day guide in Kathmandu at no extra charge. BIG THANK YOU to our fabulous guide Raju and our fearless porter Karma. I learned so much from Raju about Nepal and the Himalayas during our trek and he went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed every second, which we did. Karma also went out of his way, always ensuring we had hot food and tea and even brought dinner to my wife in her room when she was too tired! My wife and I truly enjoyed Raju and Karma's company and we will never forget watching the sunrise over Annapurna I, drinking Rakhsi on our final night, the numerous thoughtful conversations, and many, many laughs with them! Our trip would not have been the same without Raju and Karma and I look forward to another trek with them in the future!! Read more

Eliane, France

Tout d'abord un grand merci à Rajendra. Malgré nos changements de date répétés, Rajendra a pu organiser de la meilleure façon possible notre trek et répondre à nos demandes. Ce trek s'est magnifiquement déroulé dans la très belle région qu'est le Mustang. Nous y avons fait de belles rencontres, certainement grâce à notre tout jeune guide Ngawa de 23 ans qui parle bien le français. Celui-ci nous a fait découvrir de très jolis endroits notamment une petite grotte en montant vers Lori Gompa qui bientôt ne sera plus accessible. Nous avons apprécié également notre tout jeune porteur "Guelbu", discret et très attentionné. Merci à Ngawa et à Guelbu pour le très bon déroulement du trek et merci encore à Rajendra pour l'organisation, pour notre accueil à l'arrivée à l'aéroport et son accompagnement à notre départ. Cordialement Read more

Dmitry, Russian Federation

Friends Adventure Team organised trekking to the Everest Base Camp for our group (8 people). Their packages includes everything (all transfers, hotel in Kathmandu, local flight, trekking permissions, meal in Kathmanu and on the track) and that's extremely handy, you don't need to worry about anything during your travel. The guides were very nice guys, who helped us on the route. On the way to Lukhla, the weather conditions wasn't good and the planes wasn't able to fly. And the company organised a helicopter transfer with pretty reasonable additional pay. Nepal is not the most organised country, but all depending on the Friends Adventure Team was done really well.
