Mr. Dhruba Bhatta guided us through the round Annapurna trekking April 2011.
I contacted Dhruba Bhatta couple of months earlier and through the net we defined the time table of our trekking. During this time Dhruba was available on line for us and gently settled all the issue raised by us.
We arrived from Israel through a transit in Mumbai to Katmandu airport where he met us with warm hospitality. After one night stay in a boutique hotel in Thamel he took us by bus to the starting point Besisahar.
From this point he took us safely through a ten day walking (approximately – 130 km) through Manang 3500 meters, Throng la – 5500 ending in the beautiful villages Muktinath, Jomsom and Pokhara.
During these days he carefully took care after all our needs, starting from adjusting the trekking to our fitness, staying and dinning in beautiful guest houses, directing the porters that took care after our belongings in the mountains, keeping us safe in the increasing, sometime extreme altitude environment which can become every moment dangerous to human being.
After the trekking, in the evening Dhruba Bhatta and his team and us together had a nice time and long talks where he introduced us with the Nepali tradition, life style, etc. During these talks we learned that Dhruba runs trekking in other areas of Nepal, Everest base camp, ABC, Poon hill, etc.
The Annapurna trekking under his guidance became a lovely and most important safe experience and I would recommend warmly on Dhruba Bhatta to everyone who wishes to go through guided trekking in the beautiful mountains of Nepal.
