Annapurna Base Camp Trek - 14 Days Reviews

Rated 5/5 based on 3 reviews

Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp on this 13 day trip with Sublime Trails was one of the most awesome experiences I have ever had. Although there were other options to complete ABC trek in 7 days or 10 days, I choose to complete in 13 days. I wanted to take some time to admire the villages and get close to the culture and tradition of various people along the way. The altitude of Annapurna Base Camp is merely 4130 meters. So I didn’t even struggle with altitude sickness. The route to the Base Camp was full of staircases along the way which made the trip quite easy. Sublime Trails gave us an excellent trekking package which was budget friendly. The guides and porters along the way were also very friendly and helped us explore the various parts along the way. I strongly recommend everyone who is looking for the ABC trek to trek along with Sublime Trails. The crew is extremely hospitable and they will help you customize your trip according to your needs. 

Hari and the team were amazing and the best people we've ever met. Our friends organized and planned this trip with Hari, so we didn't really expected much other than walking for long periods of time. The whole country was amazing in its own way, and hanging out with Hari and the porters (Depak and Purna) was really amusing. Best holiday we've had so far and can't wait to come back to do another one with the gang

Did the 9 days ABC trek with Sublime Trails and had a really wonderful experience! The boss, Ram, was very welcoming and picked us up from the airport on our day of arrival. He also hosted a farewell dinner for us after we returned from the trek which was a really good effort on his part.  The 9 days trek was well paced by our guide, Mr. Hari who was witty and fun! He is super knowledgeable about the mountains and recommended us places to go in the city as well. Really thankful for having an amazing team of guides and porters with us which helped to make the journey up the mountains a safe and memorable one!!  Would definitely return for a 2nd trekking trip with Sublime Trails
