I would like to thank Nepal Alternative Treks & Expeditions (P.)Ltd. for making it possible for my friend and I, along with another group of friends, to have a most rewarding and profound life experience in Nepal, trekking the ABC Circuit in 9 days. Mr. Tej Gurung provided me with not only a tour package and domestic airline tickets, but also exceptional service himself, picking us up from the airport in Kathmandu and taking us to our hotel, then letting us use his driver and van to visit Boudhanath Temple before our flight to Pokhara in morning the next day. We met our guides and porters at the Pokhara airport the next day, and rode in a van to start trekking from Nayapul. Our schedule for our 9 day trek consisted of the following :

I would also like to thank my guide, Mr. Nimal Gurung, and my porters, Mr. Iman Gurung, and Mr. Sudip, for their great help and friendship, and without them my friend and I could not have made this journey.

Mr. Tej Gurung and his exceptional employees deserve more praise than can be written in this review, for they are attentative to the details of their clients’ wellbeing, with my friend and I, along with another group of friends trekking the same route, being able to stay in rooms booked ahead of us each day at the end of every day on our trek.

If you are a very healthy individual, able to run for hours or at least 10 km, are willing to face the elements of the weather, and wish to view the majesty of nature in Nepal, then I highly recommend this trekking company to help you achieve your goals.
