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.

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

      About White Desert

      They offer three incredible journeys in Antarctica where you can travel in luxury while experiencing the adventure of a lifetime.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      They occupy a space that few have captured: luxury travel in Antarctica. 3 main adventures are offered to experience the vast beautiful icy lands, all of which have you traveling in comfort and luxury. The three intricate trips they offer all showcase the incredibly unique nature of Antarctica. Two of them focus on penguins, and the third actually travels to the interior of the continent.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Their trips are geared toward older luxury travelers who have an adventurous streak. Families may also enjoy the opportunity to have some creature comforts while experiencing the beautiful but rough outdoors. Some of their activities will be more enjoyed by younger adventure minded travelers, but they offer a multitude of activities on each journey so there is something for everyone.

      Accommodations are definitely on the nicer side, though a bit more casual on their “Greatest Day” adventure which visits the interior of Antarctica. These trips are not cheap however, so many may find the price prohibitive.  

      Where Do They Operate?

      Antarctica is their sole focus. Their trips visit Antarctica’s coasts and the South Pole where you’ll see Emperor Penguins and learn about the history of exploration here. They also offer a “Greatest Day” adventure which explores the interior of the continent.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Antarctica is a bucket list item for many and they create incredible journeys. Multiple types of excursion and activity are offered throughout your trip - they try to make sure every traveler has something to enjoy. If you have an adventurous spirit, and are looking for an unforgettable experience in one of the world’s last frontiers, don’t miss a tour with White Desert.

      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.
