Annapurna Base Camp trek 

A gorgeous snowy turn of the year

When incidents happen, a situation occurs or someone gets sick or conditions get uncomfortable the mark of a good guide becomes apparent. How adaptable is the guide, how prepared, how solution-oriented? Experience certainly but also the priorities, whether the client's interest is truly the top consideration. In the extremely competitve Nepali trekking industry service standards are wide ranging - which is less of a concern than safety standards. Except that service and safety are often tightly linked in Himalayan trekking in my opinion where weather changes in a blink of an eye and is never reliably   predictable. Pre-trek advice counts as much as service provided during the trek.

With Responsible Adventures and Raj, our questions were always promptly answered in great detail. Pre-trek advice on gear was particularly prescient when clear skies turned foul on the last 3 days - in the middle of dry season. During the trek I consistently felt that we were in good hands, from the experiences shared and awesome food prepared to the way our itinerary was revised day to day taking into account both the weather changes and the physical condition of each person in the group. Great attention was paid to preparation and end to end service delivery from the time we were picked up at Kathmandu airport to the send-off at the same place. The experience as a whole was more than enjoyable - it was a fabulous holiday with beautiful scenery, newly made friends, altitude and weather challenges surmounted and overall, a fantastic trek.
