    Five years ago, when I visited for a short Pokhara tour to Nepal. I was certain next I would be trekking to Annapurna Basecamp. Since I didn’t have any words of complaint about this organization I booked with them. The trip turned out to be most amazing.No one should miss trekking to Annapurna Base Camp.

    I had an amazing trip with this company. The guides were awesome. I’ll definitely be coming back in a couple years to tackle one of the 8000ers.

    Himalayan Summit did a fantastic job. Everything went off super smooth from the warm welcome by Sittal the owner, to the logistics and planning of the trip. Our guide Rana maintained a precise schedule until the last day. Rana was extremely cheerful throughout and kept our spirits high. Our porter Ram was Superman in disguise carrying our bags up with a smile. The tea houses they arranged were the best available. Would highly recommend this young outfit with local professional ownership and staff for your treks in the region.
