High places UK provided us an opportunity to guide two visitors around Nepal. John Williams and Janette Speight were on the trek to Annapurna region this year from November 12 to November 22. Their trek began at Bhulbhule 820m and ended at Pokhara via Manang 3520m, Muktinath 3800m and Jomsom 2713m. The British citizens were at our office on 24th after the trek. We have few lines as per Mr. Williams.
” We had the warm welcoming session at the Airport. Once, the trek kicked off we experienced exceptionally helpful and informative guide. The meals in the hotel during the trek were fair enough. Overall, we are satisfied including with the transportation services as well as with the services in the lodges during the trek”.

“We flew to Pokhara on 23rd, we felt the day in Pokhara was not enough to do anything. However, if we could have flown to Kathmandu the same day, we would have enough time to do something useful at Kathmandu”.

Trekking in the Himalayan region with Explore Himalaya is possibly the best thing that can happen in Nepal.
Explore Himalaya recently organized an Annapurna Circuit Trek for Australian trekkers Clare Russell-Williams and Simon Guy. Here’s what they had to say after the completion of their trekking.
“Everything was very well organized and we were well informed about meeting points and who we were to get lifts with. Dhan Kumar Rana was a fantastic guide! We had so much fun with him and he took us to places we wouldn’t have visited if we had trekked alone. Our porter was also great, friendly and did a brilliant job of carrying our bag. We were amazed at the variety of meals available each day. All the lodges were comfortable and very welcoming. Even though it was off-season , the lodges still provided the best food possible and created a welcoming atmosphere. Our jeep ride to Besisahar was a great start to the trip. The two flights from Jomsom to Kathmandu were amazing and a great finish to the trip. Our itinerary was great. Not too much walking each day, so it allowed us time to explore each village at night. The trek was absolutely amazing, we loved every minute and wouldn’t change a thing!”

I look forward to working with your team on future treks when I am able to return to Nepal - perhaps as September 2010 with my wife.
