  • Annapurna Short Trek Austria Email: Rafael Petruccelli Annapurna Short Trek
    I had a great holiday in Nepal “Annapurna Short Trek” every thing was managed by Nepal Dream Path Treks. I booked the trip via website and I worried our tour would be good or not till before I arrived to Tribhuwan Airport. But the trip made me totally different.

    First of all I met with D.P. and Pradip. I found them really good and sounds experienced they had arranged every things like transportation, accommodation, guide porters etc. The field staffs was with fluient language, knowledge, informative funny, loyal and honest. I am inspired with their guest handling capacity and I could not stay without appreciate them. I wish you all the best and again see you on next March with Upper Mustang Trek. 

    One more interesting thing, I am surprised how could they managed such quality service with very affordable price. I would certainly recommend them (Nepal Dream Path Treks, email: info@dptreks.com)
