You will get an excellent opportunity to take part in unique and beautiful cultural activities along with locals trekking during autumn. During spring, the weather becomes more pleasant - the fantastic blossoming of flowers, beautiful natural vegetation. Spring is also the peak season for trekking.
Me and my friends did the ABC trek in early November. Niru (our guide) and Yam (our porter) are very friendly, professional, helpful, reliable and caring. During the trek, Niru always kept us motivated. I can say Niru is a highly experienced guide. He always checked our condition and listened to our needs. Niru and Yam did a very good job to make sure we reach ABC and come back safely.
After completing the trek, Niru was still checking on us and making sure that we are okay. On my last day in Kathmandu, Niru and Man Kumar Tamang (the owner of Halesi Treks) personally invited me for a farewell dinner. I really feel like a family.
I can’t thank Halesi Treks (Niru, Yam, Man Kumar) enough for making my second visit to Nepal so memorable.
I will highly recommend Halesi Treks for their excellent service!
Thank you and see you again!!
