Testimonials

Amazing guided Annapurna circuit trek

Mega Adventures did a great job with organizing and helping me with everything I needed to do the Annapurna Circuit trek. Ganesh and his colleagues are very professional, helpful and has a great overview of all the treks. My guide Ngima was very friendly and pleasant to be on a trek with. Ganesh followed up and kept in touch with both me and my guide during the whole trek to make sure that everything was okay. It was excellent service!
I would definitely recommend everyone to book a tailored tour with Mega Adventures for everyone, either you´re traveling as a solo girl or in a big group.
Thank you for an amazing experience Mega Adventures!

Essential preparation for amazing trek !!!

I visited Nepal with a friend in January to trek the Annapurna Circuit, we knew of Mega Adventures through some other friends who had trekked Everest Base Camp in April 2014. We met with Dinesh from Mega Adventures who took us around Thamel for the day organizing gear, permits and other essentials. This was invaluable as we were unsure of exactly what we needed, where we should get it from and how much we should pay, Mega certainly made this all a breeze. We were also stoked as Dinesh offered to be our local contact in civilization while we were on the trek, which was important seeing it was the middle of winter, we were trekking unguided, and the trail can get very dangerous. In the end we safely managed to cross Throng La Pass and were only the 2nd group of the year to do so due to higher than average snowfall. This wouldn’t have been possible without Mega Adventures International, they know their stuff and provide a great and friendly service! Cheers!
