My son ( 24) and I did a 9 day trek to ABC ( Anapourna base camp ) and had a wonderful time. Our guide Shiva Sibo along with the porter Niraj were very accommodating and wanted to make sure all of the details were taken care of for our trek. We were able to hike at our own pace and I never felt rushed or hurried in any way way.
Staying at some Tea houses were better than others but all in all they were fairly clean and the food was good.
We were advised by Subash at Exciting Nepal Treks what items we needed and felt like we had the right provisions without over packing. We did bring two sleeping bags but one was adequate along with one silk sack and having one or two blankets at night time. ( we were traveling in March )
The views were breathtaking. We found the people long the way were peaceful and not too pushy at all. Very loving
I would definitely recommend Sibo as a guide to anyone who would ask.
