One of the more popular treks of Nepal known for its stunning scenery allows trekkers with a shorter length of time to witness some of the landscapes and get in close proximity to the Himalayan peaks as you would on a longer trek. The trail goes alongside terraced rice paddies, lush rhododendron forests and high altitude landscapes with the Annapurna Range in view most of the time. It’s overlooked by the domineering peaks of Annapurna (8091m) and Machapuchare (6993m), meaning “Fishtail” for its distinctive summit. At the top you will witness a 360-degree view of some of the highest summits in the world, with a view like this it’s hard not to feel humbled.

Me and my friend did the trek to Annapurna basecamp (ABC) in april 2016. We had very little trekking experience and felt a bit nervous about taking such a long trek for the very first time. We met Tashi, who is the owner of the company. He was very friendly and informative about all the questions we had about which trek to choose and what to be aware of. Everything was very professional and we instantly felt safe about booking the trek with his company. We met the guide beforehand and even got Tashis help buying gear etc. without any extra charges. The trek was absolutely amazing. Nepal is the most beautiful country in the world and it was an incredible experience. Our guide was very experienced. When I experienced a small degree of altitude sickness he quickly knew what to do, gave me medicine and a specific diet and i felt better instantly. He was very helpful and always told us what to be aware of and was very aware of us. After coming back to Kathmandu we met Tashi again because he wanted to make sure, that we were happy and satisfied with everything. Furthermore I have been trekking a lot in Nepal since and the prices in Life Door Treks & Expeditions are very fair and good compared to how professional and friendly everyone in the company is. In my opinion, one of the best trekking companies in Nepal, out of so many.
