The 5-day ABC trek from Pokhara gave me a lot of experiences. l was a little anxious,But they worked with me to resolve my concerns one by one. I appreciate their polite response to my sudden request.The tour was during the rainy season, but it was wonderful to be able to experience both rainy and sunny days. Our experienced guide "Pratip" planned the trekking plan according to my physical condition and the weather of the day. He was always concerned about my physical condition and mood. During the trek, he showed me many beautiful views and told me local stories. There is nothing to worry about, l was really happy and had a smile on my face throughout the trek. It was a wonderful 5 days and I am extremely grateful to Pratip. Thank you so much.

We had an amazing experience on the Annapurna Base Camp trek, thanks to Cordial Trek (booked through Getyourguide). Rameshwar Rijal from Cordial Trek was super helpful and flexible when our flight from Kathmandu was cancelled, and supported us in finding alternative transport, accommodation and rearranging out trekking itinerary. Our guide, Prakash, was very accommodating, gentle and kind, and looked after us throughout the 5 day trek. Thank you to all. A very worthwhile experience. Highly recommended.

Great quality to price ratio. Did not expect the view will be this good in monsoon season which make our dream come true. Our guide Pratip was amazing and he provided various knowledge and really great photographic skills.

Our guide Prabin was super good. The views of the mountains were amazing. Pretty long and tough trek but definitely worth it.

My experience was very nice. Amir was very friendly and attentive during the trek. I would highly recommend!
