I decided to go on a 10 day trekking tour with my 18 year old daughter to Annapurna base camp and engaged Ashok as my guide for the trek. I have to say we did not know what to expect as this was the very first time I did something like this. Fortunately we had Ashok who understood our inexperience and the perfect guide that he was, organised our rooms, food and patiently took us through the whole journey. I can't praise his support enough as he went out of his way to ensure we were looked after, and although we initially found it hard work, with his guidance we finished the trek. It is the best thing we've ever done, and Ashok with his knowledge of the area explained and pointed out the surroundings as we went to the base camp. I would recommend Ashok to anyone wishing to take any of the trekking expeditions in Nepal as he will genuinely look after you and your interests.
