It's been more than three weeks and we're still aglow from the adventure (and we were there before Wolf Volcano erupted). So grateful to Martha, Orlando, Captain Peter, all the men named Luis, Chef Ricky, Cabin Boy Richard and the rest of the crew. We adore you all! I also have to mention that our fellow passengers were the perfect people to share this experience with.

Our trip exceeded our expectations. Quito and Otavalo turned out to be fascinating as well.

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 Ecoventura

        Ecoventura  is all about cruising the Galapagos -- it doesn't just do the Galapagos along with lots of other cruises. Its three identical expedition motor yachts -- the M/Y Eric, Flamingo I and Letty -- were custom-designed for Galapagos cruising: While nearly 25 years old, you'd never know it because they're refurbished annually. You'll find lots of teak and brass fittings and the lounge area is very comfortable for pre-dinner socializing or reading a book at any time. There's also plenty of outdoor deck space. 

        With just ten (spacious) cabins, all facing outside and with private bathrooms, the ships each hold a maximum of  20 passengers. It's easy to get to know everyone on board if you want. 

        The key, though, is the thorough coverage of the Galapagos themselves. You'll take in up to eight islands on the seven-day trips, with chances to view most of the marine mammal, reptile and bird species that inhabit them, as well as research facilities. Besides hiking to view the animals, you'll have plenty of chances to swim, snorkel or scuba dive among sea turtles, sea lions, and tropical fish. 

        Guides are trained, local, and knowlegeable, and Ecoventura is dedicated to sound environmental stewardship of these fragile island habitats. 

        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.
