We went trekking for a few days to the Annapurna Circuit Trek and visited Chitwan National Park. The experience was incredible. The travel agency is very organized and they provide you with all the means for you to have a truly remarkable trip.
Our guide, Kishore Neupane, made us feel at home. He knows a lot about everything and he is very hospitable. He is the best guide you can have in Nepal!
We were also accompanied by a supporting guide, named Rabbi. He is super nice and he is all the time willing to help.
We had an amazing time! I truly recommend “Ace the Himalaya” if you are visiting Nepal.

Had a wonderful time making this trek in this beautiful country. Dipesh, our guide seemed very relaxed as he worked behind the scenes to meet all the needs of our group. When members of our group were to take a flight back to Kathmandu he stayed with them as the rest took the bus with our porters and assistant guide. And then the flight was abruptly cancelled he arranged alternative transportation.
Our porters Omesh,Kismut and Sumet were always friendly and hardworking. They were a pleasure from beginning to end. I look forward to future trips with Ace the Himalayas. In fact we are planning a more challenging trip for 2021.

This review is for the 23-day Annapurna Circuit trek provided by Ace the Himalayas that I started mid-January 2020. The company did a great job modifying the itinerary to match my schedule as I preferred to only do the trek and Pokhara sightseeing in 20 days (removing the Kathmandu sightseeing at the beginning 3 days of the trip).
Due to unforeseen circumstances, there was a bad storm in the region prior to the trip that caused avalanches and the deaths of some trekkers and guides over the AC. Since information was sparse regarding the condition of the trail, we made our way there with the intention of trying as long as it was passable. On our second day, the guide, Dipak, conversed with some locals during our lunch and found out that the path was closed due to snow beyond the village we were supposed to reach on our 4th day.
We made an executive decision to turn around and Dipak came up with an alternative itinerary in which we would head straight to Pokhara and make our way up to Muktinath on the backside of the trek. The way up to Muktinath he knew was clear due to the amount of traffic heading up there. Without Dipak’s help, we would’ve made it up the trek normally only to be turned around and therefore wasting precious time that would not have allowed us to reach Muktinath.
Dhan, our porter, was wonderful throughout the entire trek. He made sure to grab my orders for all of our meals and made sure I was the first to eat every time. I greatly appreciated his service throughout the trek.
Overall I was satisfied with the service on the trek. Trekking in winter will always carry some risk of inclement weather but Dipak and Dhan were able to help make the most of the situation we had. Also if you have the time, I would recommend the AC as it’s quite the trek wandering through that conversation area. The altitude can be quite difficult if you’ve never had experience with it but Ace the Himalayas itinerary allows for ample time to acclimate, which is really all you need to manage.

This was my first trip to Nepal and first time trekking in the Himalayas, and Ace the Himalaya made it the best trip! From the booking, to the trekking and traveling, Ace was there at every step with information and easy communication. I would highly recommend Ace if you’re heading to Nepal!
