Annapurna luxury trekking is great !
Ammar Raj Guni is a perfect and very reliable agent for arranging your trekking. He has also much experience as a guide, so he always knows where he is talking about. His prices are really competitive. His calculations were transparent, our trek was some days longer then arranged, but at the end we got no hidden costs. He works with local people from the small villages and he treats them very socially. So during the two days we stayed at his house, we felt ourselves very comfortably. I strongly recommend his agency if you’re visiting Nepal. – Van hal Michael, Geldrop, The Netherlands.
