I recently completed the Annapurna Poon Hill 5 day trek with this company. It is a beautiful trek and not too bad if you're looking for an easy short hike. It was a great experience, mostly because of my guide, Dipak. I have only positive feedback for him. He went above and beyond. He was very knowledgeable and very friendly. He constantly made sure I was doing okay and helped me any chance he could. By far he was better than any of the other guides I met on my trek. Some of the other trekkers were very jealous of my guide, compared to their own. I would highly recommend you take this trek and specifically ask for Dipak, you won't be sorry!
