One of the most impressive and beautiful ways to approach the majestic Annapurna Mountains is a trek through the extraordinary alpine landscape to Annapurna Basecamp. Your trekking adventure starts in the lower regions where rice paddies and rhododendron forests will fascinate you. Along the Modi Khola river you will slowly climb higher where a breathtaking scenery is waiting for you.

The massive Annapurna peaks as well as the unique Machapuchre (Fishtail Mountain) seem to be just a stone throw away.  Come with us on this unforgettable journey.

Компания Happy Hari trekking была порекомендована мне приятелем из Непала и я нисколько не пожалела об этом выборе. Два Hari - два основателя компании и их команда очень дружелюбные и приятные люди, которые позаботились о правильно подобранном и очень опытном проводнике (а в треккинге мне предстояло провести 27 дней). Индра ( мой проводник) хотя и имел проблемы с английским языком, но он очень надежный. Как то раз другие туристы ждали нас, потому что их собственный проводник не смог провести их через ледник, но мой Индра сделал это! Мне также понравилось, что в пути я могла сама выбирать направление и Индра был готов к этому. Он учитывал мои пожелания и выбирал наилучший из возможных вариантов, чтобы дойти туда и увидеть то, что я хотела. Поэтому я еще и благодарна ему за невероятное тепрение.

С Happy Hari trekking мне удалось не просто совершить высокогорный треккинг но и пройти к Base camp Everest через деревни шерпа и дойти до пока еще мало посещаемого туристами Pikey Peak. Для тех, кто не может подниматься высоко в горы, это хорошая и очень интересная альтернатива. Я очень рекомендую эту компанию тем, кто желает не просто пройти по туристической тропе, но и иметь возможность выбирать собственный маршрут.
