My son and I recently spent a couple of weeks in Nepal, and everything was handled by Base Camp Adventure. Shree and his staff were unfailingly friendly, flexible, and efficient, prices were fair, the guides drivers were safe and knowledgable. We did all we fit in during the short time we had: The Annapurna Trek, Chitwan Park Safari, Everest flightseeing, paragliding and more. Shree arranged it all, and stayed in touch with us the whole time, making sure everything worked out well. When my son got sick, Shree picked him up at our hotel, took him to the hospital, and stayed with us for hours while he was being treated. When we had to change our itinerary, twice, Shree rearranged everything cheerfully. His insight and perceptiveness ensured we made the best choices. I'm convinced we got a lot more out of the trip because their expertise.

Wow, what an experience. Such majestic scenery under the shadows of Annapurna range. Much patience from our guide, Mr. Prakash.
My wife and I went trekking in the Annapurna region in March and travelled with this company. I thoroughly recommend them for their excellent service, genuine friendliness and hospitality and not least because of their very reasonable prices. Shree, who runs the show, is a delightful man who bends over backward to make sure his guests are well looked after. Nothing is too much trouble for him. Given that I had back problems, I had some initial concerns as to whether I could make it up the mountains, but Shree was extremely flexible about the length of our trek and could change details to suit us at the last minute. I would like to thank our guide, Shiva, and our porter, Reboti, who were magnificent at all times – they were extremely attentive, unfailingly friendly and good-humoured, and without them, we wouldn’t have made it to the astonishingly beautiful Annapurna Base Camp. Furthermore, I do believe this company is considerably cheaper than most others out there. Don’t hesitate to contact them for the trip of a lifetime! Marcos, England
My husband and I did a lot of travelling in asia - the trip to Nepal was our 4th time. We organized in the past every trip by ourself - so we try the fist time to do it with a travel-agency. And we are very happy, because everything (hotels, trekking, days and places to stay, ...) was our decision. And Shree (the owner - we wrote a lot of e-mails with him) organised our trip and gave also good ideas. During the trekking to anapurna base camp we have a fantastic guide (his name is Jwala lal Tamang - he is in facebook) - we didn't have any problems with health or something else, because Jwala knows every important thing about trekking. Prices are more than fair - you also have the possibility to get a similar trip (we did about three weeks - included 9 days anapurna trekking - and we were only two persons) round about 100 - 200 USD p.P. cheaper, but don't forget the drivers, trekking-guides and the sherpas - especially sherpas do a hard job and often earns less money. Shree gives them a good benefit, take care of them and select new employees rigorous. The trip was a fantastic mix from trekking and culture (we also got a lot of tips about lokal festivals and very special places away from the main tourist courses) and we think about to come back to nepal and book it with Shree.
We did a four days trekking with jwala in the Annapurna region. As we arrived rather late in Kathmandu, everything was arranged in the last minutes but everything went perfectly. You can just focus on the trekking and no worries for anything else. We will certainly go to Jwala again if we return to Nepal for another trekking holiday.
