We chose Annapurna Base Camp because the trek has a lower risk of altitude sickness that Everest Base Camp.
The trek was still quite challenging with many mountains to climb over (the guide called them hills ha ha) before we eventually started to follow the valley line up the mountains towards Base Camp. The accommodation was pretty basic (tea houses) in each village we stopped and the temperature kept getting lower the more we climbed. But once we got to base camp the view was amazing and we were so glad that we decided to do this trip. It was pretty hard, but the memories of being surrounded by some of the tallest mountains in the world was worth all the effort.
I would recommend that trip to anybody with a moderate level of fitness

This trek is definitely worth it. It might take a week to trek from start to finish but it is worth every step. The day we got to the base camp was very difficult but only because it started the hail, then snow in the last couple hours of trekking. Apart from that the trek was amazing. The views were amazing and I got to see thing i never would have at home.

    About andBeyond

    Founded in 1991, &Beyond is best known for its individually tailored luxury African safaris that span top wildlife areas throughout much of the continent. The company has since expanded to arranging private tours of several countries in South Asia (most notably India) and, to a lesser extent, southern South America. 

    What Makes Them Stand Out? 

    The company – originally called CC Africa or Conservation Corporation Africa – was founded in the belief that responsible tourism and wildlife conservation can go hand in hand. &Beyond now owns and operates 35 lodges and camps in seven countries that aid conservation efforts in Africa and India. The company is the recipient of a number of awards honoring its commitment to sustainable travel. 

    Who Travels With Them?

    Anyone who can afford a custom-made luxury private tour or safari could benefit from &Beyond’s attentive services. Whether you have a clear idea of the trip you’d like to take or would prefer &Beyond to take the lead, their staff will help guide you through the entire process. 

    Where Do They Operate?

    &Beyond designs a host of African safaris in 15 countries as well as tours to South Asia and South America. African safari destinations include South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania. You can take a walking safari in Kenya, track gorillas in Uganda, or board a water safari in Zimbabwe, among other choices. In South Asia, you could take a jungle safari in India or Nepal, a beach holiday in the Maldives, or discover beautiful Sri Lanka. In South America, Chile and Argentina are featured. 

    How Does It Work?

    &Beyond specializes in custom-made private tours. You can also choose one of their suggested “model” itineraries or modify it according to your desires. They promise 24/7 support every day of the year.  

    Why Travel With Them? 

    As one of the pioneers of eco-tourism in Africa, &Beyond has demonstrated its commitment to planning luxury safaris that enhance rather than detract from conservation efforts. Especially in their Africa tours, &Beyond offers a wide variety of adventurous experiences, using (in many cases) lodgings that the company itself owns, guaranteeing their quality.

    About Epic Adventures

    Epic Adventures offers in depth Nepal tours, as well as tours that feature Bhutan, Tibet, and India.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    They provide a way for you to experience rural and remote Himalayan life, from a local perspective. Their main focus is on hiking tours, where you’ll meet local communities and learn about the mountain cultures. They have an experienced and international team, dedicated to ensuring the safety and enjoyment of all their travelers.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Their tours are open to all ages, but travelers should be in good physical shape. Their treks and peak climbs are offered in a variety of durations and are all led by extremely experienced guides. Trekking in these environments requires a certain amount of endurance and skill, so travelers should know very clearly the level of the trek or peak climb they choose.

    Where Do They Operate?

    They are very specially focused in Nepal, with tours also offered in Bhutan, Tibet, and India. Multiple treks and peak climbs are available.

    Why Travel With Them?

    If you are looking for a lot of variety to choose from for your next Nepal trek, they certainly would be a good place to start. This kind of travel depends on a company that puts safety and guide knowledge first, and Epic Adventures takes this aspect very seriously. They also take care to ensure that all their tours fulfill the commandments of sustainable and responsible travel. Especially important for the area of the world they specialize in.
