Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a must when you travel abroad. Therefore before you come to Nepal, please make sure you have your insurance documents with you since our insurance companies cannot insure foreign nationals.

Health and Fitness Required

Gaining altitude without proper consideration of AMS is fatal.

    Absolutely Amazing Time in the Himalayas, Please Visit Once in Life!

    I would like to thank our team leader Jeevan and all the Sherpa porters and guides from the Nepal adventure team, who have made this trip possible for me. I came to Nepal in mid-September 2022 for an 11-day trek to Annapurna Base Camp. It has been an absolutely amazing time in the Himalayas. I got to witness

    Nepal Adventure Team organized the trip from beginning to end without any glitches. I would like to advise trekkers to avoid going to the ABC during the rainy season. Although I went in mid-September we had to face a little rain. However, with the service of Jeevan and his team, I was able to finish the trek without difficulty. We got the best rooms and also got to talk to the locals and experience their cultures and traditions. So, if you are flying from abroad and want to have adventure and fun on your trip, then the Nepal Adventure team is the best choice.

    Paradise of the Himalaya ABC Trek

    I recently came back from my 11 days trek to Annapurna Base Camp. I must say that it was the best time I have ever had. Nepal is a beautiful country, and the Annapurna region is the best of its landscape. I and my friends formed a group along and contacted Nepal Adventure Team for our tour.

    The tour started off very smoothly. We got very lucky because the weather was perfect so we could see a clear view of the Annapurna massif as we walk past the lush green valley below. Since we had our trek in the off-season the rooms were easily available. Additionally, the trip manager also introduced us to the locals in the area so we had a cultural and traditional experience. After this extraordinary experience in the Annapurna region, I have made up my mind to definitely visit Nepal again very soon.
