Just returned from my fourth trip with VENT. LOVE this company. Excellent tours focused on birding. Most, if not all, people on my last 3 trips were repeat VENT users, which speaks volumes for the product VENT offers its customers. The tour guides are knowledgeable and fun leaders who are intent on showing everyone the birds. Good food and lodging is also provided. Highly recommend VENT to any birders who want to tour other areas (domestic and international) with experienced guides. Top shelf!

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 Victor Emanuel

      Birding and wildlife tours and cruises for all levels and ages.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      They are the perfect tour company for birders, with tours led by experts in their field. They also offer birding cruises, which are great for viewing penguins in the Antarctic, blue footed boobies in the Galapagos, and other unique species in places like the Amazon.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Birding tours are often very popular among older travelers and photographers. Tours are easy, but they offer a few tours that are labeled as “Relaxed and Easy” for those travelers who want less time in the field.

      Where Do They Operate?

      They have tours all over the world, with the majority in the United States and Europe.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Their tours are slow paced and easy, great for older travelers and those who are looking for a tour with less strenuous activities. They also provide workshops and cruises. Tours are focused on birding, but also highlight other wildlife of the respective regions.

      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.
