A Perfect Trek with the best Guide! Annapurna Circuit will literally take your breath away! Acclimatization trips around Manang were great. The trek goes through Buddhist villages and holy Hindu sites, including Muktinath and Braga . If you have extra time, visit Tilicho Lake and Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) for stunning vistas.

Out of all the many treks that we have gone on, the trek that is most memorable to us is the Jomson trek. While the scenery was stunning as ever, the one thing that made this trek our most treasured, was our ever wonderful guide -- Dhruba! Dhruba is someone that everyone would be want to befriend. He is so friendly and warm, we felt comfortable with him as our guide from the very first meeting. He made sure that we were doing well at all times and looked out for us always. One day, we will find our way back to beautiful Nepal & of course, wonderful, fabulous Dhruba! Paul & Wendy, San Francisco, California, USA
Anyway, Dhruba, please stay in touch! We would love to go back to Nepal one day & when we do, we'll definitely look you up! Hope the trekking business is going well!

We completed the nine day Langtang Trek with Druba in October 2012. We could not have asked for a better guide. Although we are seniors and consider ourselves to be fit we were not sure if we could manage this challenging walk. Druba encouraged us all the way with his kindness and humour. He speaks excellent English and He is very knowledgable about the religions, cultures and terrain. He chose great places for us to stay and seemed to know people all along the route. We felt completely safe in his hands. It was a real pleasure to get to know Druba and we recommend him for anyone considering trekking anywhere in the Himalayas.
