First of all, thank you for listening to what we wanted. You really picked a great area for us. We saw less than 10 non-Nepalese hikers the entire week. The views were simply amazing as we climbed out of Sikles. And we were very glad to meet so many locals in each of the villages. It was a great cultural trek. Hum and the entire crew were amazing. They made every effort to make us feel comfortable. The food was spectacular. We ate so much fresh local food, including freshly butchered water buffalo and a rooster (that michelle got to kill).
All and all, it was a life altering experience. couldn't be more happy. we should also mention that raj was very hospitable. we went out of his way to find an astrologer for michelle, to get us a driver for our last day in kathmandu, and to get us to Boudha even though the only time we could fit it in was on our way to the airport. and sundar in pokhara too. very very helpful. You guys run a great operation. can't thank you enough.

‘I have recently returned from trekking the Annapurna Circuit with Mongoose Travel - a company recommended in your travel guide. We had the most excellent service from Barry and Bridget who run the company and from their enthusiastic guide and porters. We will highly recommend them to friends as a personal and responsible portal to visiting Nepal’.
