ABC Sanctuary Trek

I recently embarked on the ABC Sanctuary Trek with the World Alpine Trek and had the privilege of being guided by Deepak. I can confidently say that it was an extraordinary experience that exceeded all expectations.

It's so important for me to feel relaxed and relieved not only during the trek but before and after that.
He is very faithful and suave, which gave me such feelings perfectly.
Needless to say, the 2 treks he organized were awesome.

Moreover, I'm glad to know there is a woman who works for this company. I'm hopeful for his company's growth.
I believe a new era has come to this fascinating country and this company will lead that.
Good luck, Shubha Kamana.

Excellent trip to ABC & EBC with a professional Guide

A very special thanks to my really good guide, Deepak. I don't think I can find a better one. I traveled solo and he was always there advising me on things to buy, also taking good care of me and answering all my queries during my trek. When I had blisters and walked with so much pain, he always made jokes to make me feel better. Would choose Alpine Treks because of Deepak on all my future Nepal trips as my trip was a success! The Alpine Treks team is amazing and everyone showed more care than interest in money which I found truly amazing. They always prioritized my safety, and food and made sure I was always contented with everything. They give very good service. Deepak personally sent and fetched me from the airport and they always had lovely greetings and farewells.

My trip went very well because I decided to go with World Alpine Treks. It's really important to find the right trekking company and I especially recommend them as they were more interested in my well-being and to enjoy my stay in Nepal more than anything else. There was full transparency from the start to the end & Deepak always answered every query I had even before I arrived in Nepal. World Alpine Treks is a trustable, honorable company and I would recommend it to all. Have been on a hiking trip to EBC, ABC & Annapurna Circuit with them.
