Review of: Annapurna Base Camp Treks
Thank you for such a wonderful, professional and safe trek to Annapurna Base Camp, it was magical.
My husband and son used Nepal Planet Trekking in 2015 to go to Everest base camp trek and found the company and guide Sanjib to be an excellent choice.
My husband convinced me to attemp the Annapurna Base Camp trek in April this year and I’m so glad I did. From the minute we touched down in Kathmandu our guide Sanjib was absolutely brilliant.
He arranged everything for us including shopping for some trekking essentials at discount prices, to lovely accommodation and transfers to all destinations.
Throughout the trek itself Sanjib was invaluable, he constantly reassured me and was very kind. He physically helped me get through some of the challenging areas of the trek. The company’s porter was also lovely, he carried our pack with a smile on his face and it was ready to use in our rooms at each tea house when we arrived.
All I can say is give these guys the chance to arrange your trekking trip.
They Offer a very personalised business and strive to give you the trip of a lifetime and they certainly succeeded for us. They are flexible to your needs and requirements and they delivered 100%.

Everest panorama trek with Sanjib Adhikari
We were a group of 5. mix of young and not so young. This is our 2nd time in Nepal. 1st time was during the earthquake in april 2015.
We found Sanjib on facebook and we were observing his postings since feb 2019. had some conversation with him and found him suitable for our needs. So fast forward to 05 sept 2019. we arrived at dusty kathmandu. Sanjib took us to the money changers. bought local sim cards for the mountains (Ncell is good) and off we fly to Lukla on the next day. throughout the trek. he always stayed with us. guarding us against the steep valleys below. gave a helping hand to those who cant climb up or down steps. This guy is like a Bull. He can run up trails to assist u at a moment notice. no question asked. He also takes our meals orders in advance so as to prep the teahouse kitchen. (food is slow in the mountains) We felt we were very well taken care of.
(Our previous guide during poon hill trek was terrible. ran away at the 1st sign of a earthquake/aftershock. Left a very bitter taste in our mouth)
Words cant fully describe the service we got from Sanjib and his porters Raj Sherpa and Om Puri.
We had a great time. Things are well arranged. no delays. no hiccups.
Always accommodating to our request and flexible in arrangements on the trails. We will be back again soon. No need to look for another guide next time.

Trek to EBC and Tour of Kathmandu
If you are reading this, you have likely made up your mind to trek to Everest Base Camp or explore Nepal and are trying to make a decision about your trekking company. Prior to our adventure, I was where you are at doing as much research as possible as this was my 15 year daughter’s dream and I was tasked with her safety on this trek. With that being said, I placed our well being in the hands of Nepal Planet Treks and Expeditions based on a review I found where Sanjib had led a couple in their mid-50’s safely down from EBC after the earthquakes in 2015. It was a fantastic decision as team that Sanjib (Laxman – our guide, Raj – our porter, and Sanjib) put together was outstanding and made our trip a memory of a lifetime.
The Nepal Planet Treks and Expeditions team went out of their way to accommodate all our needs, schedule, concerns, and the things we didn’t even know we needed. This included:
-Prior to arriving, Sanjib was quick to respond to any questions and made planning easy.
-Sanjib met us at the airport upon arrival, checked us into the hotel he had arranged for us, took us to dinner and made sure our first day in Kathmandu was easy and fun.
-Laxman and Sanjib reviewed our gear prior to the trek and helped us rent or buy what we needed in Kathmandu so what we packed on the trek was exactly what what we should take.
-Laxman constantly checked in with us along the trek to make sure we were comfortable and feeling well. He took extra time to address any issues that came up and thoughtfully told us to go at our own pace and enjoy the trek. He also served our meals, making sure we were getting the nutrition and sleep we needed at each tea house.
-Laxman knew this was my daughter’s adventure and was conscious about her questions and pace during the day. He even sent pictures/texts back home to my wife to let her know where we were at and that we were safe when our phones did not work (he is our adopted son now by the way).
-Every time we saw Raj he had a smile on his face despite lugging all our gear up and down the trail to EBC.
-Sanjib took us on a fantastic tour of Kathmandu after we returned from the EBC trek as we had a couple days to kill before flying out.
After spending 14 days trekking and couple more in Kathmandu with Laxman and Sanjib, there is obviously a lot more to say, but I think you get the picture. If you are looking for a cost effective and overly accommodating trekking company in Nepal, you can do no wrong in selecting Sanjib’s Nepal Planet Treks and Expedition P. Ltd.
